FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may contact Bea Wade, on (775) 861– 6625 (Commercial or FTS). Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1– 800–877–8330, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to contact Ms. Wade. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires BLM to provide 60day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we use; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Section 3(b)(2)(B) of the Wild FreeRoaming Horse and Burro Act requires that BLM provide for individuals whom the Secretary determines are qualified to adopt wild horses and burros to provide humane care and proper treatment. The regulations at 43 CFR subpart 4750 request applicants to submit Form 4710–10, Application for Adoption of Wild Horse(s) and Burro(s), to adopt wild horses and burros. BLM requests the following information on Form 4710–10: (A) The applicant must provide the name, address, and telephone number to further communicate about the adoption. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:26 Jun 20, 2006 Jkt 208001 (B) The applicant must provide the driver’s license number to locate the adopter. Wild horses and burros remain the property of the United States until title passes to private individuals. During the period between adoption and the passing of title, BLM is under obligation to see that the animals receive humane care and proper treatment. For that reason, BLM visits and contacts the adopter to determine that status and condition of the animals. BLM uses this information to also determine the location and condition of animals if the adopter should change the location of the animals within the State. (C) The applicant must provide the birth date to assure that the applicant qualifies to adopt an animal under section 43 CFR 4750.3–2 (must be at least 18 years or older). (D) The applicant must provide the social security number. In those states where the driver’s license and social security numbers are the same, the applicant needs only his/her driver’s license number. BLM uses this information for possible debt collection purposes and to track the location of the adopter if the adopter moves out-ofstate. (E) The applicant must indicate the number and species of animals the adopter wishes to adopt so we can determine the availability of the animals requested. (F) The applicant must provide a map of the location where the adopted animals will be located so that we can conduct inspections of the facility and the animals to ensure compliance under 43 CFR 4750.3–2 relating to private maintenance. (G) The applicant must sign a Private Maintenance and Care Agreement (a part of the Form 4710–10) after BLM approves the application to adopt a wild horse or burro. BLM uses the information to determine whether individuals are qualified to provide humane care and proper treatment to one or more adopted animals. When BLM approves the application and the individual completes a Private Maintenance and Care Agreement, the individual may adopt one to four wild horses or burros at one time. There is no other source for the required information and failure to furnish the required information will result in the BLM denial of an application to adopt a wild horse or burro. Based on BLM’s experience in administering the activities, we estimate the public reporting burden is 10 minutes per response to complete the required information. We estimate PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35697 30,000 responses per year and a total annual burden of 5,000 hours. BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: June 15, 2006. Ted R.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requests the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to extend an existing approval to collect certain information from applicants who wish to acquire a land use authorization on public lands. The regulations (43 CFR part 2920) establish procedures for processing proposals for non-Federal use of public Lands. BLM will determine the validity of uses proposed by applicants from information provided on the Land Use application and Permit, (Form 2920–1). DATES: You must submit your comments to BLM at the appropriate address below on or before August 21, 2006. BLM will not necessarily consider any comments received after the above date.

PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires BLM to provide 60day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (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 those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The BLM implements section 43 CFR 2922.2–1 which requires submitting the Land Use application and Permit, Form 2920–1, for land use authorizations which may include leases, permits, or easements to eligible applicants. Since the information collected is unique to each application, there is no other suitable means of information collection identified to gather the information at a lesser burden. If the applicant fails to provide the required information, BLM must reject the application. Based on our experience administering these activities, we estimate the public reporting burden for the information collected is 1 to 120 hours. The frequency of response is once when filing the application. We estimate the number of responses per year is 590 and a total annual burden of 2,137 hours. BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.

authorizes to graze on public land. BLM uses these forms to collect 
this information: Form 4120-6, Cooperative Range Improvement Agreement, 
to document cooperative range improvement construction arrangements 
with grazing operators; and Form 4120-7, Range Improvement Permit, to 
authorize grazing operators to develop rangeland improvement projects. 
This information allows the BLM to review the application and to make a

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 
60-day notice in Federal Register concerning a collection of 
information to solicit comments:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information 
will have practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection 
burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we 
use;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information collected; and

land use plans, multiple use objectives, sustained yield, environmental 
values, economic considerations, and other factors to allow the 
opportunity to construct and maintain rangeland improvements on the 
public lands.
    Because of the variations in size and complexity of rangeland 
improvement projects, BLM estimates it takes 50 minutes to complete 
each form. We estimate 600 responses per year for Form 4120-6 and 60 
responses per year for Form 4120-7 with a total annual burden of 500 
hours.
    BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in 
the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of 
public record.
