Additionally, importers of breeding swine or swine semen must include the results of tests conducted on the imported swine or donor boars. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the information collection on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response. Respondents: Importers of breeding swine, pork and pork products, and swine semen, officials of the national government for the region of origin, and salaried veterinary officers of the national government of the country of origin. Estimated annual number of respondents: 30. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 10. Estimated annual number of responses: 300. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 300 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 22nd day of May 2006. Elizabeth E. Gaston, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice sets forth the establishment and adjustments to the sugar overall allotment quantity (OAQ) for the 2005-crop year (FY 2006) which runs from October 1, 2005 through September 30, 2006. Although CCC already announced all of the information in this notice, CCC is statutorily required to publish in the Federal Register determinations establishing or adjusting sugar marketing allotments. CCC set the 2005crop OAQ to 8.600 million short tons raw value (STRV) on August 12, 2005. On August 19, 2005, CCC allocated the cane sector allotment to cane-producing States and cane processors and reassigned an expected cane supply shortfall of 120,000 STRV to imports. On September 29, 2005, CCC increased the OAQ to 8.825 million STRV and reassigned another 276,000 STRV of expected cane shortfall to imports. The next day, CCC announced the FY 2006 beet company allocations. On December 2, 2006, CCC reassigned another 450,000 STRV of an updated cane supply shortfall to imports. On February 2, 2006, CCC increased the OAQ to 9.350 million STRV and reassigned 500,000 STRV of the anticipated domestic supply deficit to imports. The revised FY 2006 cane state allotments and cane and beet sugar processor allocations were announced on March 22, 2006.

ACTION: SUMMARY: The Forest Service is proposing to establish a new directive to Forest Service Manual (FSM) 2070 for native plant materials, which will provide direction for the use, growth, development, and storage of native plant materials. Public comment is invited and will be considered in development of the final directive. A copy of the proposed directive is available at http://www.fs.fed.us/rangelands/ whoweare/documents/ FSM2070_Final_2_062905.pdf. DATES: Comments must be received in writing by July 25, 2006.

If comments are sent via facsimile or e-mail, the public is asked not to submit duplicate written comments by mail. Please confine comments to issues pertinent to the proposed directive and explain the reasons for any recommended changes. All comments, including names and addresses when provided, are placed in the record and are available for public inspection and copying at 201 14th Street, SW., Washington, DC, during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Persons wishing to inspect the comments are encouraged to call in advance to Brian Boyd, (202) 205–1496 to facilitate entrance into the building. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Larry Stritch, Rangeland Management Staff, USDA Forest Service, Mailstop 1103, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20250, (202) 205–1279. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title 36 CFR 219.10(b) states: ‘‘The overall goal of the ecological element of sustainability is to provide a framework to contribute to sustaining native ecological systems by providing ecological conditions to support diversity of native plant and animal species in the plan area.’’ Executive Order 13112 (February 3, 1999, sec. 2(a)(2)(IV)) on invasive species states the agencies will ‘‘provide for restoration of native species and habitat conditions in ecosystems that have been invaded [by non-native species].’’ In accordance with the executive order and regulation, the Forest Service is developing a new proposed directive to PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30375 Forest Service Manual (FSM) 2070, Native Plant Materials, which addresses the uses of native plant materials in the revegetation, restoration, and rehabilitation of National Forest System lands in order to achieve the Agency’s goal of providing for the diversity of plant and animal communities. The proposed policy would direct collaboration with federal, State, and local government entities and the public to develop and implement a program for native plant materials for use in revegetation, restoration, and rehabilitation. In proposing this new policy, the Forest Service’s goal is to promote the use of native plant materials in revegetation for restoration and rehabilitation in order to manage and conserve terrestrial and aquatic biological diversity. The proposed policy defines a native plant as: All indigenous terrestrial and aquatic plant species that evolved naturally in an ecosystem. The proposed policy also requires the use of best available information to choose ecologically adapted plant materials for the site and situation. Further, the proposed policy states that native plants are to be used when timely natural regeneration of the native plant community is not likely to occur; native plant materials are the first choice in revegatation for restoration and rehabilitation efforts. Nonnative, non-invasive plant species may be used when needed: (1) In emergency conditions to protect basic resource values such as soil stability and water quality; (2) as an interim, non-persistent measure designed to aid in new establishment of native plants (unless natural soil, water and biotic conditions have been permanently altered); (3) native plant species are not available; and (4) when working in permanently altered plant communities. Under no circumstances will nonnative invasive plant species be used. When the proposed policy is issued as final, the Forest Service will: (1) Undertake a comprehensive assessment of needs (type and amount) for native plant materials; (2) invest in a long-term commitment to research and development, education, and technology transfer for native plant materials; (3) expand efforts to increase the availability of native plant materials; and (4) collaborate with other federal agencies; tribal, State, and local governments; academic institutions; and the private sector.

Domestic Sugar Program--2005-Crop Cane Sugar and Sugar Beet 
Marketing Allotments and Company Allocations

AGENCY: Commodity Credit Corporation, USDA.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice sets forth the establishment and adjustments to 
the sugar overall allotment quantity (OAQ) for the 2005-crop year (FY 
2006) which runs from October 1, 2005 through September 30, 2006. 
Although CCC already announced all of the information in this notice, 
CCC is statutorily required to publish in the Federal Register 
determinations establishing or adjusting sugar marketing allotments. 
CCC set the 2005-crop OAQ to 8.600 million short tons raw value (STRV) 
on August 12, 2005. On August 19, 2005, CCC allocated the cane sector 
allotment to cane-producing States and cane processors and reassigned 
an expected cane supply shortfall of 120,000 STRV to imports. On 
September 29, 2005, CCC increased the OAQ to 8.825 million STRV and 
reassigned another 276,000 STRV of expected cane shortfall to imports. 
The next day, CCC announced the FY 2006 beet company allocations. On 
December 2, 2006, CCC reassigned another 450,000 STRV of an updated 
cane supply shortfall to imports. On February 2, 2006, CCC increased 
the OAQ to 9.350 million STRV and reassigned 500,000 STRV of the 
anticipated domestic supply deficit to imports. The revised FY 2006 
cane state allotments and cane and beet sugar processor allocations 
were announced on March 22, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 359b(b)(1) of the Agricultural 
Adjustment Act of 1938, as amended, (7 U.S.C. 1359bb(a)(1)) requires 
the Secretary to establish, by the beginning of each crop year, an 
appropriate allotment for the marketing by processors of sugar 
processed from sugar beets and from domestically produced sugarcane at 
a level the Secretary estimates will result in no forfeitures of sugar 
to the CCC under the loan program.
    When CCC announced an 8.600 million ton OAQ in August 2005, it 
noted the existence of sugar market uncertainties and that the OAQ 
could be adjusted as warranted. On August 19, 2005, when cane processor 
allocations were first announced, CCC determined that the cane sugar 
supply was insufficient to fill the cane sector allotment. As a result, 
CCC suspended Louisiana proportionate shares and reassigned 120,000 
STRV to the FY 2006 raw sugar Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ).
    On September 29, 2005, in response to preliminary damage estimates 
to Louisiana production from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, CCC increased 
the FY 2006 OAQ another 225,000 tons. While this action released 
122,288 STRV of domestic beet sugar stocks into the market, the cane 
sector carried a supply deficit which caused CCC to reassign 276,000 
STRV to Mexican refined or raw imports.
    On December 2, 2006, with domestic cane crop damages further 
compounded by Hurricane Wilma in Florida, CCC increased its forecast of 
the cane supply shortfall and reassigned another 450,000 STRV to 
imports. This was allocated between the WTO raw sugar TRQ (300,000 
STRV) and the refined global, first-come, first-served TRQ (150,000 
STRV). Since company-specific damages were not known then, CCC did not 
announce the impact of the reassignment on cane processors.
    On February 2, 2006, CCC increased the OAQ to 9.350 million STRV 
and reassigned 500,000 STRV of expected supply shortfalls from both the 
beet (242,000 STRV) and cane (258,000 STRV) sectors evenly between the 
WTO raw sugar TRQ and the refined TRQ. CCC took these actions in 
response to a continuing tight supply resulting largely from the 
disastrous weather events in August, September, and October 2005.
    Because Puerto Rico forecast zero production for the 2005 crop, 
whenever the OAQ was either set or changed, its allotment was 
immediately reassigned to the mainland states based on their respective 
shares of the cane sugar allotment. Hawaii did not receive a share of 
Puerto Rico's allocation because it was not expected to use all of its 
own allocation.
    The established 2005-crop beet and cane sugar marketing allotments 
are listed in the following table, along with the subsequent 
adjustments:
