under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Section 3507. Persons wishing to comment on this information collection 
should contact Timothy Fain, Office of Management and Budget, Room

    Please note: The Commission has requested emergency review of 
this collection by September 12, 1996, under the provisions of 5 CFR 
Section 1320.13.

    Title: Policy and Rules Concerning the Implementation of the Local 
Competition Provisions in the Telecommunications Act of 1966, CC Docket 
No. 96-98, First Report and Order.
    Form No.: N/A.
    OMB Control No.: 3060-0710.
    Action: Revised Collection.
    Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 12,500 respondents; 122 hours per response 
(avg.); 1,529,620 hours total annual burden.
    Needs and Uses: In the First Report and Order in CC Docket 96-98, 
the Commission adopted rules and regulations to implement parts of 
Section 251 and 252 that effect local competition. Specifically, the 
Order requires incumbent local exchange carriers (``LECs'') to offer 
interconnection, unbundled network elements, transport and termination, 
and wholesale rates for retail services to new entrants; that incumbent 
LECs price such services at rates that are cost-based and just and 
reasonable; and that they provide access to rights-of-way as well as 
establish reciprocal compensation arrangements for the transport and 
termination of telecommunications traffic.
    The foregoing estimates include the time for reviewing 
instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and 
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the burden 
estimates or any other aspect of the collection of information 
including suggestions for reducing the burden to the Federal 
Communications Commission, Records Management Division, Paperwork 
Reduction Project, Washington, D.C. 20554.

Federal Communications Commission
William F. Caton,
Acting Secretary.
