Current Actions I. Background The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93–275, 15 U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE Organization Act (Pub. L. 95–91, 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.) require the EIA to carry out a centralized, comprehensive, and unified energy information program. This program collects, evaluates, assembles, VerDate Aug<18>2005 17:39 Aug 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 analyzes, and disseminates information on energy resource reserves, production, demand, technology, and related economic and statistical information. This information is used to assess the adequacy of energy resources to meet near and longer-term domestic demands. The EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), provides the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to comment on collections of information conducted by or in conjunction with the EIA. Any comments received help the EIA to prepare data requests that maximize the utility of the information collected, and to assess the impact of collection requirements on the public. The Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program information collection is conducted pursuant to section 1605(b) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–486, 42 U.S.C. 13385). The Program is currently operated under General Guidelines issued in October 1994 (59 FR 52769) by the DOE’s Office of Policy and International Affairs. The Program’s existing EIA–1605 and EIA–1605EZ forms were designed to collect voluntarily reported data on greenhouse gas emissions, reductions of these emissions, and increased carbon fixation, as well as information on commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon in future years. On June 30, 2005, the EIA issued a Federal Register notice (70 FR 37798) soliciting comments on a proposed revised Form EIA–1605 and instructions that were developed to conform to revised Interim Final General Guidelines and Draft Technical Guidelines proposed by the DOE’s Office of Policy and International Affairs on March 24, 2005 (70 FR 15169). The comment period on the revised Interim Final General Guidelines and Draft Technical Guidelines closed on June 22, 2005, while the comment period on EIA’s proposed revised Form EIA–1605 and instructions closed on August 29, 2005. II. Current Actions Upon further consideration, EIA has decided to cancel the request for comments on the proposed revised Form EIA–1605 and instructions. EIA will instead wait for the process of developing the general and technical guidelines to progress before soliciting comments on revised draft versions of the Program’s form and instructions. EIA will, however, where appropriate, PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51761 take into consideration comments received in response to its June 29, 2005 Federal Register notice in developing revised draft forms and instructions.

I. Background

    The Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-275, 15 
U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE Organization Act (Pub. L. 95-91, 42 
U.S.C. 7101 et seq.) require the EIA to carry out a centralized, 
comprehensive, and unified energy information program. This program 
collects, evaluates, assembles, analyzes, and disseminates information 
on energy resource reserves, production, demand, technology, and 
related economic and statistical information. This information is used 
to assess the adequacy of energy resources to meet near and longer-term 
domestic demands.
    The EIA, as part of its effort to comply with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), provides 
the general public and other Federal agencies with opportunities to 
comment on collections of information conducted by or in conjunction 
with the EIA. Any comments received help the EIA to prepare data 
requests that maximize the utility of the information collected, and to 
assess the impact of collection requirements on the public.
    The Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program information 
collection is conducted pursuant to section 1605(b) of the Energy 
Policy Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-486, 42 U.S.C. 13385). The Program is 
currently operated under General Guidelines issued in October 1994 (59 
FR 52769) by the DOE's Office of Policy and International Affairs. The 
Program's existing EIA-1605 and EIA-1605EZ forms were designed to 
collect voluntarily reported data on greenhouse gas emissions, 
reductions of these emissions, and increased carbon fixation, as well 
as information on commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and 
sequester carbon in future years.
    On June 30, 2005, the EIA issued a Federal Register notice (70 FR 
37798) soliciting comments on a proposed revised Form EIA-1605 and 
instructions that were developed to conform to revised Interim Final 
General Guidelines and Draft Technical Guidelines proposed by the DOE's 
Office of Policy and International Affairs on March 24, 2005 (70 FR 
15169). The comment period on the revised Interim Final General 
Guidelines and Draft Technical Guidelines closed on June 22, 2005, 
while the comment period on EIA's proposed revised Form EIA-1605 and 
instructions closed on August 29, 2005.

II. Current Actions

    Upon further consideration, EIA has decided to cancel the request 
for comments on the proposed revised Form EIA-1605 and instructions. 
EIA will instead wait for the process of developing the general and 
technical guidelines to progress before soliciting comments on revised 
draft versions of the Program's form and instructions. EIA will, 
however, where appropriate, take into consideration comments received 
in response to its June 29, 2005 Federal Register notice in developing 
revised draft forms and instructions. After EIA drafts revised forms 
and instructions, EIA will issue a new Federal Register notice 
requesting public comments.
