Download as PDF 9965 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 6, 2007 / Notices Reclamation irrigation water deliveries occurred after October 1, 1981 [43 CFR 426.6(b)(2)]. A new ‘‘Religious or Charitable Organization Identification Sheet’’ (Form 7–2578) has been developed for approval as part of this information collection, and will allow us to establish certain religious or charitable organizations’ compliance with Federal reclamation law. Reclamation anticipates a very minimal increase in burden hours resulting from the addition of this form because of the very limited type of landholders that can use this form. The Religious or Charitable Organization Identification Sheet is disbursed at our discretion and will be effective starting in the 2008 water year. Frequency: Generally, these forms will be submitted once per identified entity, trust, public entity, or religious or charitable organization. Each year, we expect new responses in accordance with the following numbers. Respondents: Entity landholders, trusts, public entities, and religious or Burden estimate per form (in minutes) Form No. charitable organizations identified by Reclamation that are subject to the acreage limitation provisions of Federal reclamation law.
