DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB02 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: +Major Capital Investment Projects (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would create a new regulatory framework for FTA´s evaluation and rating of projects seeking funding under the discretionary New Starts and Small Starts programs authorized by 49 U.S.C. 5309. Specifically, this rulemaking would simplify the measures for assessing the mobility improvements and cost-effectiveness of projects; would place greater emphasis on the environmental benefits of projects and the effects of projects on local economic development; would clarify the criteria for assessing the local financial commitment of project sponsors; would streamline the evaluation process for projects that remain within a certain envelope of cost and scope during the project development process; and would provide a very quick evaluation process for certain types of projects seeking funding under the Small Starts program.

Additional Information: Includes Retrospective Review under Executive Order 13563. Anticipated cost savings: FTA estimates current overall New and Small Starts annual paperwork burden hours to be approximately 275 hours for each of the estimated 135 respondents totaling 37,070 hours and annual costs totaling $2,780,250. The proposals in the NPRM and accompanying proposed guidance, if adopted, would modify the time required to prepare and submit an applications. Thus, FTA estimates burden hours would be approximately 260 hours for each of the estimated 135 respondents totaling 35,070 hours and annual costs totaling $2,630,250. These and other paperwork requirement trade-offs were an express objective in developing this NPRM. SB - N IC - N SLT - Y This item emcompasses the third and fourth FTA item in the August RRR plan.
