An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid control number. Comments are requested concerning (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB Control No.: 3060-0221.

Title: Section 90.155, Time in Which Station Must Be Placed in Operation.

Form No.: N/A.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for profit, not-for-profit institutions, and state, local or tribal government.

Number of Respondents: 2,055.

Estimated Time Per Response: 1 hour.

Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement.

Total Annual Burden: 2,055 hours.

Needs and Uses: Section 90.155 provides that all stations must be placed in operation within twelve (12) months from the date of grant or the authorization cancels automatically and must be returned to the Commission. Application for extension of time to commence service may be made on FCC Form 601. Extensions of time must be filed prior to the expiration of the construction period. Extensions may be granted only if the licensee shows that the failure to commence service is due to causes beyond its control. No extensions will be granted for delays cause by lack of financing, lack of site availability, for the assignment or transfer of control of an authorization, or for failure to timely order equipment. If the licensee orders equipment within 90 days of the license grant, a presumption of due diligence is created. The Commission is seeking extension (no change in rule requirements) to this information collection request. We are simply seeking the full three year OMB clearance.
