Request for Public Comments and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Approval of an Existing Information Collection (2137-0584)
This notice seeks public comment on the need for PHMSA to collect paperwork information from state agencies that maintain programs to regulate pipelines. The purpose of the paperwork is to ensure that these states are properly monitoring the operations of pipeline operators in their states, and to determine Federal grant amounts for these states. This notice is published (pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995) to measure the need for the paperwork collection from these state agencies, to find ways to minimize the burden on states that must respond, to find ways to enhance the quality of information collected, and to verify the accuracy of the PHMSA's estimate of the burden (measured in work hours) on the states. This notice also seeks approval from the Office of Management and Budget to renew the existing approval of this paperwork collection.
