coordination with the States, ``shall update and publish periodically a 
list of currently effective hazardous material highway route 
designations.''
    Under 49 CFR 397.73, the FMCSA Administrator has the authority to 
request that each State and Indian tribe, through its routing agency, 
provide information identifying hazardous materials routing 
designations within its jurisdiction. That information is collected and 
consolidated by FMCSA and published annually, in whole or as updates, 
in the Federal Register.
    Comments From the Public: The FMCSA received 1 comment in response 
to the 60-day comment request Federal Register notice published on 
October 23, 2013. FMCSA will consider the comment received from the 
American Trucking Association (ATA) that addressed the changes to be 
implemented in the ICR to meet the requirements of Public Law 112-141, 
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

collection is necessary for the FMCSA to perform its functions; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) 
ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of 
the collected information.
