SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Certification of Enforcement of the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax.
    OMB Control #: 2125-0541.
    Background: Title 23 United States Code, Section 141(c), provides 
that a State's apportionment of funds under 23 U.S.C. 104(b)(4) shall 
be reduced in an amount up to 25 percent of the amount to be 
apportioned during any fiscal year beginning after September 30, 1984, 
if vehicles subject to the Federal heavy vehicle use tax are lawfully 
registered in the State without having presented proof of payment of 
the tax. The annual certification by the State Governor or designated 
official regarding the collection of the heavy vehicle use tax serves 
as the FHWA's primary means of determining State compliance. The FHWA 
has determined that an annual certification of compliance by each State 
is the least obtrusive means of administering the provisions of the 
legislative mandate. In addition, States are required to retain for 1 
year a Schedule 1, IRS Form 2290, Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Return (or 
other suitable alternative provided by regulation). The FHWA conducts 
compliance reviews at least once every 3 years to determine if the 
annual certification is adequate to ensure effective administration of 
23 U.S.C. 141(c).
    The estimated annual reporting burden is 102 hours; the estimated 
recordkeeping burden is 510 hours for a total of 612 hours. The 50 
States and the District of Columbia share this burden. Preparing and 
processing the annual certification is estimated to require 2 hours per 
State. Recordkeeping is estimated to require an average of 10 hours per 
State.
    Respondents: 50 State Transportation Departments, and the District 
of Columbia for a total of 51 respondents.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Annual Burden per Response: The average burden to 
submit the certification and to retain required records is 12 hours per 
respondent.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Total estimated average annual 
burden is 612 hours.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT's performance, 
including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the 
accuracy of the U.S. DOT's estimate of the burden of the proposed 
information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, 
and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden 
could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without 
reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will 
summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's 
clearance of this information collection.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued on: January 13, 2014.
Michael Howell,
Information Collection Officer.
