Title: Application for Authorization to Use the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem. OMB Number: 0524–0034. Expiration Date of Approval: March 31, 2006. Type of Request: Intent to request approval to extend an information collection. Abstract: Use of the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem is authorized by an Act of Congress (18 U.S.C. 707). Use of the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem by anyone other than 4–H Clubs and those duly authorized by them, representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture, the landgrant colleges and universities, and persons authorized by the Secretary of Agriculture is prohibited by the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 707. The Secretary of Agriculture has delegated authority to the Administrator of CSREES to authorize others to use the 4–H Club Name and Emblem. The Administrator has promulgated regulations at 7 CFR part 8 that govern such use. The regulatory requirements for use of the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem reflect the high standards of 4– H and its educational goals and objectives. Pursuant to provisions of 7 CFR part 8 anyone requesting authorization from the Administrator to use the 4–H Club Name and Emblem is asked to describe the proposed use in a formal application. The collection of this information is used to determine whether the applicant’s proposed use will meet the regulatory requirements in 7 CFR part 8 and whether an authorization for use should be granted. Need and Use of the Information: CSREES will collect information on the name of the individual, partnership, corporation, or association; the organizational address; the name of an authorized representative; the telephone number, facsimile number, and e-mail address; the proposed use of the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem; and the plan for sale or distribution of the product bearing the 4–H Club Name and/or Emblem. The information collected by CSREES will be used to determine if those applying to use the 4–H Name and/or Emblem meet the regulatory requirements. If the information is not collected, it would not be possible to ensure that the products, services, and materials meet the regulatory requirements as well as 4–H educational goals and objectives. Estimate of Burden: No changes have been proposed to this collection and the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 public reporting burden remains at the estimated average .5 hours per response. Respondents: Individuals, households, business or other for-profit or not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 60. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondents: 2. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 60 hours. Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) 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; (b) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

It was formally filed on May 16, 2005. The Senesco shipyard (450 employees, 31 acres, capacity: up to 4 vessels/year) is located at 10 MacNaught Street within the Quonset Business Park (FTZ Site 2), in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Under FTZ procedures, Senesco would construct and repair tugboats (HTSUS 8901.90), double-hulled liquid barges (HTSUS 8901.20) and articulating tug barges for domestic and international customers. Foreign components that would be used at the shipyard (up to 30% of total purchases) include: diesel engines (HTSUS 8408.10), stern tubes (8483.30), reduction gears (8483.40), shaft grounding systems and seals (8483.90), generators (8501.62, 8501.63), overfill alarms (8531.90), tank washing machines (8537.10), valve remote operators (8537.10), tank gauging systems (8537.10), and ACCU automation/steering systems (8537.10) (duty rates: 1.3–4.5%). The request indicates that Senesco will not admit any foreign-origin steel mill products to the zone for use in FTZ manufacturing activity. FTZ procedures would exempt Senesco from Customs duty payments on the foreign components (except steel mill products) used in export activity. On its domestic sales, the company would be able to choose the duty rate that applies to finished oceangoing vessels (duty free) for the foreign-origin components noted above. Duties would be deferred or reduced on foreign E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
