                Information Collection Being Reviewed by the Federal
                Communications Commission Under Delegated Authority
                AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.
                ACTION: Notice and request for comments.
                SUMMARY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens,
                and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the
                Federal Communications Commission (FCC or the Commission) invites the
                general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to
                comment on the following information collection. Comments are requested
                concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary
                for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission,
                including whether the information shall have practical utility; the
                accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; ways to enhance the
                quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to
                minimize the burden of the collection of information on the
                respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or
                other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the
                information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer
                than 25 employees. The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of
                information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No
                person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a
                collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a
                valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number.
                DATES: Written PRA comments should be submitted on or before February
                22, 2022. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but
                find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this
                notice, you should advise the contact listed below as soon as possible.
                ADDRESSES: Direct all PRA comments to Nicole Ongele, FCC, via email
                [email protected] and to [email protected].
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information about the
                information collection, contact Nicole Ongele, (202) 418-2991.
                 OMB Control Number: 3060-0951.
                 Title: Sections 1.204(b) Note and 1.1206(a) Note 1, Service of
                Petitions for Preemption.
                 Form Number: N/A.
                 Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
                 Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities, Individuals or
                households; Not-for-profit institutions; and State, Local or Tribal
                 Number of Respondents and Responses: 125 respondents; 125
                 Estimated Time per Response: 0.28 hours (17 minutes).
                 Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirements and third
                party disclosure requirement.
                 Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
                Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47
                U.S.C. 151, 154, and 303.
                 Total Annual Burden: 35 hours.
                 Total Annual Cost: No Cost.
                 Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Yes.
                 Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission is not
                requesting respondents to submit confidential information to the
                Commission. If the Commission requests respondents to submit
                information which respondents believe is confidential, respondents may
                request confidential treatment of such information pursuant to section
                0.459 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 0.459.
                 The FCC has a system of records, FCC/OGC-5, ``Pending Civil
                Cases,'' to cover the collection, purpose(s), storage, safeguards, and
                disposal of the personally identifiable information (PII) that
                individuals may submit with their petitions for preemption that they
                file with the Commission.
                 Needs and Uses: These provisions supplement the procedures for
                filing petitions seeking Commission preemption of state and local
                government regulation of telecommunications services. They require that
                such petitions, whether in the form of a petition for rulemaking or a
                petition for declaratory ruling, be served on all state and local
                governments. The actions for which are cited as a basis for requesting
                preemption. Thus, in accordance with these provisions, persons seeking
                preemption must serve their petitions not only on the state or local
                governments whose authority would be preempted, but also on other state
                or local governments whose actions are cited in the petition.
                Federal Communications Commission.

                Federal Register Liaison Officer.
