SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Bureau of Reclamation (we, our, or us) 
intends to submit a request for renewal (with revisions) of an existing 
approved information collection to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB): Certification Summary Form, Reporting Summary Form for Acreage 
Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and 43 CFR part 428, OMB Control Number: 
1006-0006. This information collection is required under the 
Reclamation Reform Act of 1982 (RRA), Acreage Limitation Rules and 
Regulations, 43 CFR part 426, and Information Requirements for Certain 
Farm Operations In Excess of 960 Acres and the Eligibility of Certain 
Formerly Excess Land, 43 CFR part 428. We request your comments on the 
revised RRA forms and specific aspects of the information collection.

DATES: Your written comments must be received on or before April 4, 
2005.

ADDRESSES: You may send written comments to the Bureau of Reclamation, 
Attention: D-5300, P.O. Box 25007, Denver, CO 80225-0007. You may 
request copies of the proposed revised forms by writing to the above 
address or by contacting Stephanie McPhee at: (303) 445-2897.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie McPhee at: (303) 445-2897.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Certification Summary Form, Reporting Summary Form for 
Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and 43 CFR part 428.
    Abstract: These forms are to be used by district offices to 
summarize individual landholder (direct or indirect landowner or 
lessee) and farm operator certification and reporting forms as required 
by the RRA, 43 CFR part 426, and 43 CFR part 428. This information 
allows us to establish water user compliance with Federal reclamation 
law.

Changes to the RRA Forms and the Instructions to Those Forms

    The changes made to the current Form 7-21SUMM-C, Form 7-21SUMM-R, 
and the corresponding instructions clarify the completion instructions 
for these forms (for example, adding verbiage to specify when requested 
acreages are to be provided on a westwide or district-specific basis). 
Other changes to the forms and the corresponding instructions are 
editorial in nature and are designed to assist the respondents by 
increasing their understanding of the forms, and clarifying the 
instructions for use when completing the forms. The proposed revisions 
to the RRA forms will be effective in the 2006 water year.

Draft of a New Form

    As part of Reclamation's ongoing acceptance of users' comments on 
the RRA forms, Reclamation has received a request to devise a way to 
more efficiently track limited recipients that hold less than 40 acres 
(i.e., those that are below the RRA forms submittal threshold and thus 
do not submit standard RRA forms) and the full-cost and excess land 
held by such limited recipients. In an effort to address this comment 
Reclamation has drafted a proposed new form, ``Tabulation H of Limited 
Recipients That Hold Less Than 40 Acres, and Full-Cost Landholders and 
Excess Landowners That Are Below the RRA Forms Submittal Threshold.'' 
The implementation of this proposed new form will be based on the 
public comments received and if implemented, will be effective in the 
2006 water year as a mandatory part of the districts' annual submittal 
of Form 7-21SUMM-C and/or Form 7-21SUMM-R, as appropriate.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Respondents: Contracting entities that are subject to the acreage 
limitation provisions of Federal reclamation law.
    Estimated Total Number of Respondents: 248.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.25.
    Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: 310.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 12,400 hours.
