Capital Construction Fund is a tax-deferred ship construction fund that 
was created to assist owners and operators of U.S.-flag vessels in 
accumulating the large amount of capital necessary for the 
modernization and expansion of the U.S. merchant marine. The program 
encourages construction, reconstruction, or acquisition of vessels 
through the deferment of Federal income taxes on certain deposits of 
money or other property placed into a CCF.
    Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 1790 hours.
    Comments Are Invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its 
full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication.

    Authority: 49 CFR 1.93.
