Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 76751-76752 [E5-7970]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 28, 2005 / Notices Responsible Official ˜ Jim Pena, Forest Supervisor, Plumas National Forest, P.O. Box 11500, Quincy, CA 95971. Nature of Decision To Be Made Based on the supplement, the responsible official will decide whether to implement the project based on an alternative in the FEIS or not implement the project at this time. wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Early Notice of Importance of Public Participation in Subsequent Environmental Review A draft supplemental environmental impact statement will be prepared for comment. The comment period on the draft supplemental environmental impact statement will be 45 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft supplemental environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions. Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 U.S. 519, 553 (1978). Also, environmental objections that could be raised at the draft supplemental environmental impact statement stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final supplemental environmental impact statement may be waived or dismissed by the courts. City of Angoon v. Hodel, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this proposed action participate by the close of the 45-day comment period so that substantive comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them and respond to them in the final supplemental environmental impact statement. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments on the draft supplemental environmental impact statement should be as specific as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages of the draft supplement. Comments may also address the adequacy of the draft supplemental environmental impact statement or the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 merits of the alternatives formulated and discussed in the statement. Reviewers may wish to refer to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act at 40 CFR 1503.3 in addressing these points. Comments received, including the names and addresses of those who comment, will be considered part of the public record on this proposal and will be available for public inspection.

Burden: 9,266 hours. Number of Respondents: 55,600. Avg Hours Per Response: 10 minutes. Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests authorization from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct the 2006 Census Test Coverage Followup (CFU) operation. Improving coverage, or how well the Census Bureau counts people and housing units in the census, is one of the major goals for the 2010 Census. To achieve this goal, the Census Bureau is conducting an iterative series of tests that will provide an opportunity to evaluate new or improved question wording, methodology, technology, and questionnaire design. The 2006 Census Test is part of the testing cycle, which was planned to allow us to finalize methodologies and operational procedures in time to conduct a Dress Rehearsal in 2008 and a successful census in 2010. The 2006 CFU operation is designed to improve coverage by collecting additional information from households that we identify as having potential coverage problems. This includes households where we have reason to believe that persons may have been counted more than once (e.g., students who are counted at their parents’ home but also counted where they reside while they are attending school) or persons who might not have been included in the household count (e.g., newborn babies or roommates). During this operation, we also will contact large households containing more than six persons in order to ensure that everyone is included. Similarly, households where the count of persons does not equal the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 number of persons for which census data are provided will be contacted. We will also attempt to contact households that contain persons identified on administrative records who were not included on the appropriate census questionnaire. Finally, the entire census universe will be matched against itself in an effort to resolve person duplication at the housing level. The 2006 CFU operation will be conducted in selected locations in Travis County, Texas and the Cheyenne River Reservation and Off Reservation Trust Land, South Dakota. Both telephone interviews and personal visits to gather information are planned. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One-time. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory.
