Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 114 / Wednesday, June 15, 2005 / Notices Flexibility Analysis (if small businesses are potentially impacted by the no take regulations) were conducted. However, many of the benefits and costs identified in these analyses are speculative in nature and therefore a great deal of uncertainty about both the benefits and the costs. The 10-year replication of the 1995–96 study will support an assessment of any changes in knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of the no-take areas and establish new baselines on several new regulations established since 1995–96. II. Method of Collection Paper questionnaires and in-person interviews will be used to collect information. III. Data OMB Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profits organizations; not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 255. Estimated Time Per Response: 2 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 491. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. IV. Request for 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 shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) 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 respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
