SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Surface Transportation Environment and Planning (STEP) 
Cooperative Research Program.
    Background: Section 5207 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users of 2005 
(SAFETEA-LU) established a new cooperative research program for 
environment and planning research in section 507 of Title 23, United 
States Code, Highways (23 U.S.C. 507). The general objective of the 
STEP is to improve understanding of the complex relationship between 
surface transportation, planning, and the environment. The FHWA 
anticipates that the STEP program will provide resources for national 
research on issues related to planning, environment and realty. These 
resources are likely to be included in future surface transportation 
legislation. The research program established under this section shall 
ensure that stakeholders are involved in the governance of the program, 
at the executive, overall program, and technical levels, through the 
use of expert panels and committees. FHWA will be collecting feedback 
via a STEP Web site on the 18 emphasis areas. This information will be 
used to identify potential research for an annual Research Plan. The 
number of stakeholders with an interest in environment and planning 
research includes three groups:

I--Federal Agencies and Tribal Governments
II--State and Local Governments
III--Non-governmental Transportation and Environmental Stakeholders

    Respondents: An estimated 270 participants annually for a total of 
approximately 810 participants during the three-year period while the 
OMB clearance is in effect.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes each year. Due to 
the specialized nature of the 18 emphasis areas, most commenters will

annually (405 hours total for the three-year period).
    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.
