OMB Control Number: 0596–NEW. Summary of Collection: The Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Research Act of 1978, as amended, authorizes the Forest Service (FS) to collect information to help identify the range of knowledge, attitudes and values interested publics hold toward fuel-load reduction and resulting aesthetic and ecological changes. Fuel loads in the forest of the Southern Appalachian Mountain pose significant risk of wildfire. Among forest ecologists there is a growing awareness that there may be some value to conducting prescribed fires and mechanical thinning to reduce the concentration of shrubs and under-story trees in some parts of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. These treatments, particularly if they were to be implemented over large areas, would change the visual and ecological character of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. FS will collect information using the Internet and a mail-back questionnaire. Need and Use of the Information: FS will collect information describing respondents’ perceptions of the aesthetic (visual), economic and ecological results of prescribed fire and mechanical thinning. The collected information will provide profiles of different groups or clusters of people and how each group perceives the economic, aesthetic and ecological results of forest management action. Without the information programs will be less efficient and accurate and unneeded conflicts and SUMMARY: This notice announces that the fee to be charged for the 2006 tariffrate quota (TRQ) year for each license issued to a person or firm by the Department of Agriculture authorizing the importation of certain dairy articles which are subject to tariff-rate quotas set forth in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) will be $150.00 per license.
