The information from the forms and other activities will be used to certify that unshu oranges from Japan are free of citrus canker. To ensure that the oranges from Kyushu Island are not imported into citrus-producing areas of the United States such as Florida and California, boxes must be stamped or labeled with a statement specifying the State into which the oranges may be imported, and from which they are prohibited removal under a Federal quarantine.

Summary of Collection: Under the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701–et seq.), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to prohibit or restrict the importation, entry, or movement of plants and plant pests to prevent the introduction or dissemination of plant pests into the United States. The Hawaii fruit and vegetables regulations contained in 7 CFR 318.13 govern, among other things, the interstate movement of fruits and vegetables from Hawaii. These regulations are necessary to prevent the spread of plant diseases and pests that occur in Hawaii but not on the mainland United States. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulations allow mangosteen, dragon fruit, melon, pods of cowpea and its relatives, breadfruit, jackfruit, and fresh drumstick tree pods to be moved interstate from Hawaii under certain conditions to the mainland United States while continuing to provide protection against the spread of plant pests from Hawaii in the continental United States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Citrus Canker; Interstate Movement of Regulated Nursery Stock and Fruit From Quarantined Areas. OMB Control Number: 0579–0317. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture, either independently or in cooperation with States, to carry out operations or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests, such as citrus canker, that are new to or not widely distributed within the United States. Citrus canker is a plant disease that affects plant and plant parts, including fresh fruit of citrus and citrus relatives (family Rutaceae). Citrus canker can cause defoliation and other serious damage to the leaves and twigs of susceptible plants. It can also cause lesions on the fruit of infected plants and cause infected fruit to drop from trees before reaching maturity. The aggressive A (Asiatic) strain of citrus canker can infect susceptible plants rapidly and lead to extensive economic losses in commercial citrus-producing areas. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service regulations to prevent the interstate spread of citrus canker are contained in ‘‘Subpart— Citrus Canker’’ (7 CFR 301.75–1 through 301.75–17). The regulations restrict the interstate movement of regulated articles from and through areas quarantined because of citrus canker and provide, among other things, conditions under which regulated nursery stock and fruit may be moved interstate. The interstate movement of regulated nursery stock and fruit from quarantined areas involves information collection activities, including compliance agreements, package marking, certificates, and limited permits. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 18731 approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.19 hours per response. Respondents: Citrus growers and packinghouses. Estimated annual number of respondents: 400. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 36. Estimated annual number of responses: 14,402. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 2,742 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 17th day of April 2017. Michael C. Gregoire, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
