Download as PDF 54694 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 180 / Monday, September 18, 2006 / Notices Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action Due to the largely administrative nature of the proposed action, its environmental impacts are small. Therefore, the only alternative the staff considered is the no-action alternative, under which the staff would leave things as they are by simply denying the amendment request. This no-action alternative is not feasible because it conflicts with 10 CFR 30.36(d), requiring that decommissioning of byproduct material facilities be completed and approved by the NRC after licensed activities cease. The NRC’s analysis of the Licensee’s final status survey data confirmed that the Facility meets the requirements of 10 CFR 20.1402 for unrestricted release and license termination. Additionally, denying the amendment request would result in no change in current environmental impacts. The environmental impacts of the proposed action and the no-action alternative are therefore similar, and the no-action alternative is accordingly not further considered. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Conclusion The NRC staff has concluded that the proposed action is consistent with the NRC’s unrestricted release criteria specified in 10 CFR 20.1402. Because the proposed action will not significantly impact the quality of the human environment, the NRC staff concludes that the proposed action is the preferred alternative. Agencies and Persons Consulted NRC provided a draft of this Environmental Assessment to the State of Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection for review on June 12, 2006. On August 18, 2006, the State of Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection responded by electronic mail. The State agreed with the conclusions of the EA, and otherwise had no comments. The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action is of a procedural nature, and will not affect listed species or critical habitat. Therefore, no further consultation is required under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act. The NRC staff has also determined that the proposed action is not the type of activity that has the potential to cause effects on historic properties. Therefore, no further consultation is required under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The NRC staff has prepared this EA in support of the proposed action. On the VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:48 Sep 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 basis of this EA, the NRC finds that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action, and that preparation of an environmental impact statement is not warranted. Accordingly, the NRC has determined that a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. IV.

Extension: Form 13F; SEC File No. 270–22; OMB Control No. 3235–0006. Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension and approval of the collection of information described below. Section 13(f) 1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 2 (the ‘‘Exchange Act’’) empowers the Commission to: (1) Adopt rules that create a reporting and disclosure system to collect specific information; and (2) disseminate such information to the public. Form 13f–1 3 under the Exchange Act requires institutional investment managers that exercise investment discretion over accounts—having in the aggregate a fair market value of at least $100,000,000 of exchange-traded or NASDAQ-quoted equity securities—to file quarterly reports with the Commission on Form 13F. The information collection requirements apply to institutional investment managers that meet the $100 million reporting threshold. Section 13(f)(5) of the Exchange Act defines an ‘‘institutional investment manager’’ as any person, other than a natural person, investing in or buying and selling securities for its own account, and any person exercising investment discretion with respect to the account of any other person.

The reporting system required by Section 13(f) of the Exchange Act is intended, among other things, to create in the Commission a central repository of historical and current data about the investment activities of institutional investment managers, and to improve the body of factual data available to regulators and the public. The Commission staff estimates that 3,378 respondents make approximately 13,512 responses under the rule each year. The staff estimates that on average, Form 13F filers spend 98.8 hours/year to prepare and submit the report. In addition, the staff estimates that 336 respondents file approximately 1,344 amendments each year. The staff estimates that on average, Form 13F filers spend 4 hours/year to prepare and submit amendments to Form 13F. The total annual burden of the rule’s requirements for all respondents therefore is estimated to be 335,090 hours ((3,378 filers × 98.8 hours) + (336 filers × 4 hours)). The estimate of average burden hours is made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act. The estimate is not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of Commission rules. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.

The information collected is intended to ensure that the information required to be filed by the Commission permits verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability of the information. The information provided is mandatory and all information is made available to the public upon request. Form F–80 takes approximately 2 hours per response and is filed by 4 issuers for a total annual burden of 8 hours. The estimated burden of 2 hours per response was based upon the amount of time necessary to compile the registration statement using the existing Canadian prospectus plus any additional information required by the Commission.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of Filings and Information Services, Washington, DC 
20549.

    Extension: Form 13F; SEC File No. 270-22; OMB Control No. 3235-
0006.

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (the ``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension and approval of 
the collection of information described below.
    Section 13(f) \1\ of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 \2\ (the 
``Exchange Act'') empowers the Commission to: (1) Adopt rules that 
create a reporting and disclosure system to collect specific 
information; and (2) disseminate such information to the public. Form 
13f-1 \3\ under the Exchange Act requires institutional investment 
managers that exercise investment discretion over accounts--having in 
the aggregate a fair market value of at least $100,000,000 of exchange-
traded or NASDAQ-quoted equity securities--to file quarterly reports 
with the Commission on Form 13F.

    \1\ 15 U.S.C. 78m(f).
    \2\ 15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.
    \3\ 17 CFR 240.13f-1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The information collection requirements apply to institutional 
investment managers that meet the $100 million reporting threshold. 
Section 13(f)(5) of the Exchange Act defines an ``institutional 
investment manager'' as any person, other than a natural person, 
investing in or buying and selling securities for its own account, and 
any person exercising investment discretion with respect to the account 
of any other person. Form 13F under the Exchange

[[Page 54695]]

Act defines ``investment discretion'' for purposes of Form 13F 
reporting.
    The reporting system required by Section 13(f) of the Exchange Act 
is intended, among other things, to create in the Commission a central 
repository of historical and current data about the investment 
activities of institutional investment managers, and to improve the 
body of factual data available to regulators and the public.
    The Commission staff estimates that 3,378 respondents make 
approximately 13,512 responses under the rule each year. The staff 
estimates that on average, Form 13F filers spend 98.8 hours/year to 
prepare and submit the report. In addition, the staff estimates that 
336 respondents file approximately 1,344 amendments each year. The 
staff estimates that on average, Form 13F filers spend 4 hours/year to 
prepare and submit amendments to Form 13F. The total annual burden of 
the rule's requirements for all respondents therefore is estimated to 
be 335,090 hours ((3,378 filers x 98.8 hours) + (336 filers x 4 
hours)).
    The estimate of average burden hours is made solely for the 
purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act. The estimate is not derived 
from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the 
costs of Commission rules. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid control number.
    Please direct general comments regarding the above information to 
the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive 
Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or e-mail to: David--
Rostker@omb.eop.gov, and (ii) R. Corey Booth, Director/Chief 
Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley 
Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, Virginia 22312; or send 
an e-mail to: PRA--Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB 
within 30 days of this notice.
