SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title1: A Guide to Reporting Highway Statistics.
    OMB Control Number: 2125-0032.
    Abstract: A Guide to Reporting Highway Statistics provides for the 
collection of information by describing policies and procedures for 
assembling highway related data from the existing files of State 
agencies. The data includes motor-vehicle registration and fees, motor-
fuel use and taxation, driver licensing, and highway taxation and 
finance. Federal, State, and local governments use the data for 
transportation policy discussions and decisions. Motor-fuel data are 
used in attributing receipts to the Highway Trust Fund and subsequently 
in the apportionment formula that are used to distribute Federal-Aid 
Highway Funds. The data are published annually in the FHWA's Highway 
Statistics. Information from Highway Statistics is used in the joint 
FHWA and Federal Transit Administration required biennial report to 
Congress, Status of the Nation's Highways, Bridges, and Transit: 
Conditions and Performance, which contrasts present status to future 
investment needs.
    Respondents: State and local governments of the 50 States, the 
District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
    Estimated Average Burden Per Response: The estimated average 
reporting burden per response for the annual collection and processing 
of the data is 825 hours for each of the States (including local 
governments), the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden 
for all respondents is 42,900 hours.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Ralph Erickson, (202) 366-9235, 
Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Office of 
Policy, Office of Highway Policy Information, Highway Funding and Motor 
Fuels Division (HPPI-10), 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 
20590. Office hours are from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except Federal holidays.
    Title 2: Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS). OMB Control 
Number: 2125-0028.
    Abstract: The HPMS data that is collected is used for management 
decisions that affect transportation, including estimates of the 
Nation's future highway needs and assessments of highway system 
performance. The information is used by the FHWA to develop and 
implement legislation and by State and Federal transportation officials 
to adequately plan, design, and administers effective, safe, and 
efficient transportation systems. This data is essential to the FHWA 
and Congress in evaluating the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway 
program. The HPMS also provides miles, lane-miles and travel components 
of the Federal-Aid Highway Fund apportionment formulae. The data that 
is required by the HPMS has recently been reassessed and streamlined by 
the FHWA.
    Respondents: State governments of the 50 States, the District of 
Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average burden

[[Page 62894]]

per response for the annual collection and processing of the HPMS data 
is 1,800 hours for each State, the District of Columbia and the 
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden 
for all respondents is 93,600 hours.

Public Comments Invited

clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burdens
