[[Page 35962]]

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the following public 
information collection(s) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. sections 3501-3520). An agency may not conduct or 
sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number, and no person is required to respond to a 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Judith Boley-Herman, Office of 
Managing Director, (202) 418-0214 or email PRA@fcc.gov.

    OMB Control Number: 3060-1122.
    OMB Approval Date: May 17, 2012.
    Expiration Date: May 31, 2015.
    Title: Preparation of Annual Reports to Congress for the Collection 
& Expenditure of Fees or Charges for Enhanced 911 (E911) Services Under 
the NET 911 Improvement Act of 2008.
    Form No.: Not applicable.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 56 responses; 50 hours per response; 2800 
hours total per year.
    Obligation to Respond: Voluntary.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for 
    Needs and Uses: This information collection enables the Federal 
Communications Commission (Commission) to fulfill its continuing 
obligations under the New and Emerging Technologies 911 Improvement Act 
of 2008, Public Law 110-283, 122 Stat. 2620 (2008) (NET 911 Act) to 
submit an annual ``Fee Accountability Report'' to the Committee on 
Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate and the Committee 
on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives ``detailing the 
status in each State of the collection and distribution [of] fees or 
charges'' for ``the support or implementation of 911 or enhanced 911 
services,'' including ``findings on the amount of revenues obligated or 
expended by each State or political subdivision thereof for any purpose 
other than the purpose for which any such fees or charges are 
specified.'' (NET 911 Act, 122 Stat. at 2622) The statute directs the 
Commission to submit annual reports.
    The Commission is now revising this information collection in order 
to collect more detailed information regarding how states, territories, 
and other reporting jurisdictions collect and expend 911/E911 fees. 
Given this express Congressional concern with the appropriate use of 
collected fees, the Bureau believes that future reports to Congress 
should contain more detailed information about how states and other 
reporting jurisdictions determine what activities, programs, and 
organizations qualify as being ``in support of 9-1-1 and enhanced 9-1-1 
services, or enhancements of such services,'' for purposes of 
qualifying to receive collected 911/E911 funds.

Federal Communications Commission.
