DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Previous Request for Comments New York: Major Disaster and Related Determinations This request provides a 30-day comment period required by OIRA. The Coast Guard has already published the 60-day notice (71 FR 57986, October 2, 2006) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That notice elicited no comments. Information Collection Request Title: Great Lakes Pilotage. OMB Control Number: 1625–0086. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Three U.S. Pilot Associations and Individual Pilots on the Great Lakes. Forms: None. Abstract: The Office of Great Lakes Pilotage is seeking OMB’s approval to change Great Lakes Pilotage data collection requirements for the three U.S. pilot associations it regulates. This change would require submission of data to an electronic data collection system. This new system is identified as the Great Lakes Electronic Pilot Management System. This electronic system replaces the manual paper submissions previously used to collect data on bridge hours, vessel delay, detention, cancellation/movement, pilot travel, revenues, pilot availability, and related data. This change will ensure that the required data is available in a timely manner and will allow immediate accessibility to data crucial from both an operational and ratemaking standpoint. Currently, this information is being recorded manually. Burden Estimate: The estimated burden remains 18 hours a year. Dated: December 15, 2006. R. T. Hewitt, Rear Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard, Assistant Commandant for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information Technology. [FR Doc.
