SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On April 6, 2007, FMCSA published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 17218), to announce that its Information Collection Request (ICR) for collecting data about motor carriers who operate small passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles had been sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. In the April 6th notice, the agency imposed a 30-day comment period for interested parties to comment on the survey. The comment period ended on May 7, 2007.

Purpose of Reopening the Comment Period

The comment period is being reopened to allow more time for the public to comment on this proposed survey. FMCSA is committed to obtaining information that will provide insight into the common safety and regulatory compliance challenges facing motor carriers with small passenger-carrying CMV operations. Such information provided in the comments will also be utilized by FMCSA to develop educational outreach initiatives for the affected industry segment. It is appropriate that FMCSA connect with and inform this segment of the motor carrier industry of its regulatory compliance responsibilities before implementing an enforcement program. Any information obtained will help identify specific areas of regulatory compliance that are problematic for this industry segment. The survey will also obtain needed insight about how to best provide and distribute information to the affected industry segment.
