agencies. The data includes motor-vehicle registration and fees, motor-

Funds. The data are published annually in the FHWA's Highway 
Statistics. Information from Highway Statistics is used in the joint

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, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American 
Samoa, the Northern Marianas, and the Virgin Islands share this burden.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average 
reporting burden per response for the annual collection and processing 
of the data is 754 hours for each of the States (including local 
governments), the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Marianas, and the Virgin
