    Abstract: We collect information from individuals or organizations 
that apply for a special use permit required to conduct economic or 
other privileged or specialized uses on National Wildlife Refuge System 
lands in Alaska. We use the information to:
    (1) Determine if the applicant is qualified or eligible for a 
permit.
    (2) Evaluate the impacts of the proposed activity on refuge 
resources and other users.
    (3) Determine if the proposed activity is compatible with refuge 
purposes and the mission of the refuge system.
    Comments: On May 26, 2006, we published in the Federal Register (71 
FR 30439) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for 
this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 
60 days, ending on July 25, 2006. We received two comments from the 
same individual. The comments did not address issues surrounding the 
proposed collection of information or the cost and hour burden 
estimates, but instead objected to our issuing permits for guided 
hunting. The commenter also questioned who verified the information 
submitted in the application, and suggested requesting additional 
information for two of the application items. If we include the 
suggested additional information on our application, we would collect 
information in excess of the minimum necessary to fulfill our statutory 
and regulatory requirements and responsibilities. Therefore, we have 
not made any changes to FWS Form 3-2001 as a result of these comments.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
    (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
    (2) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection 
of information;
    (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents. Comments submitted in response to this notice are a matter 
of public record.
