A copy of the collection instrument is also available at the Take Pride in America Web site, at http://www.takepride.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8 (d)). This notice identifies an information collection activity that the Office of the Secretary will submit to OMB for extension or reapproval. Under the Take Pride in America Program Act (the ACT), 16 U.S.C. Sec 4601–4608, the Secretary of the Interior is to: (1) ‘‘Conduct a national awards program to honor those individuals and entities which, in the opinion of the Secretary * * * have distinguished themselves in activities’’ under the purposes of the Act; and also to (2) ‘‘establish and maintain a public awareness campaign in cooperation with public and private organizations and individuals—(A) to install in the public the importance of the appropriate use of, and appreciation for Federal, State and local lands, facilities, and natural and cultural resources; (B) to encourage an attitude of stewardship and responsibility towards these lands, facilities, and resources; and (C) to promote participation by individuals, organizations, and communities of a conservation ethic in caring for these lands, facilities, and resources.’’ The Act states that ‘‘[t]he Secretary is authorized * * * generally to do any and all lawful acts necessary or appropriate to further the purposes of the TPIA Program.’’ If this information were not collected from the public, Take Pride in America (TPIA) awards would be limited to VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:06 Aug 07, 2006 Jkt 208001 individuals and organizations nominated by Federal agencies based on projects within their sphere of influence. This would effectively block many worthy individuals and organizations from being considered for these awards. The TPIA was launched in April of 2003 with the stated intent of honoring the best in the nation, without restriction. It would reflect poorly on the Department and on the President if only volunteers to Federal agencies could be honored for their service to America. II.

III. Request for Comments The Department of the Interior invites comments on: (a) 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; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection and 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 PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45069 who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
