Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 10554 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 45 / Thursday, March 8, 2007 / Notices lead to the result that there are more active permits in a year than there are active studies. Comments are invited on: (1) The practical utility of the information being gathered; (2) the validity and accuracy of the reporting burden hour estimate; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made public available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Automated Data Collection: The information collection and status reporting system for which the renewal of three components of a single collection of information package is being proposed in this notice currently is available to applicants, permittees, and the public through the NPS Research Permit and Reporting System Web site (http://science.nature.nps.gov/ research). In addition to considering the renewal of the three information collection forms without changes, NPS is considering what development of modifications to the Internet site, if any, are needed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of this automation system to facilitate the permit application and progress reporting process. If NPS were to adopt a component by which users could provide comments to NPS, NPS would make that component available online through the Internet site. Description of Respondents: Representatives of: Academic and other research institutions, Federal, state, or local agencies, research businesses; other scientific parties seeking an NPS research and collecting or science education permit; permittees who submit the annual report of accomplishment that is one of the permit conditions. Estimated Average Number of Respondents: NPS estimates the average number of respondents to be 6,500 by 2010. Estimated Average Number of Responses: NPS estimates an average number of 13,000 responses by 2010. Estimated Average Burden Hours Per Two-Part Response: 1,625 hours per year total for responding to both parts of this collection of information was the VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:53 Mar 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 estimate in 2004. NPS does not expect this burden hour estimate to change, even if the proposed opportunity for permit system users to offer comments to NPS is adopted, because returning users are expected to be able to spend less time on the two existing parts and the goal for the collection of information for the comments is to make that collection of information short and focused. Frequency of Response: 2 times per respondent per year—once to submit the application and once to submit the Investigator’s Annual Report. A small number of respondents is expected to submit a third response, should the proposed collection of information for comments be added to the system. Estimated Annual Reporting Burden: NPS estimates the estimated annual reporting burden will be 10,560 hours by the year 2010. Dated: February 7, 2007. Leonard E. Stowe, NPS, Information Collection Clearance Officer.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:53 Mar 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Backcountry Use Permit (36 CFR 1.5, 1.6, and 2.10). Form Numbers: 10–404A. OMB Number: 1024–0022. Expiration Date: 06/30/07. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Description of Need: In 1976, the NPS initiated a backcountry registration system in accordance with the regulations found at 36 CFR 1.5, 1.6 and 2.10. The objective of the backcountry use permit system is to provide users access to backcountry areas of national parks with continuing opportunities for solitude, while enhancing resource protection and providing a means of disseminating public safety messages regarding backcountry travel. NPS backcountry program managers, by designating access routes and overnight camping locations, can redistribute campers in response to user impact, high fire danger, flood or wind hazard, bear activity or other situations that may temporarily close a portion of the backcountry. The NPS may also use the permit system as a means of ensuring that each backcountry user receives up-to-date information on backcountry sanitation procedures, food storage, wildlife activity, trail conditions and weather projections so that concerns for visitor safety are met. The Backcounty Use Permit is an extension of the NPS statutory authority responsibility to protect the park areas it administers and to manage the public use thereof (16 U.S.C. Sections 1 and 3). NPS regulations codified in 36 CFR Parts 1 through 7, 12 amd 13, are designated to implement statutory mandates that provide for resource protection and public enjoyment. The Backcountry Use Permit is the primary form used to provide access into NPS backcountry areas including those areas that require a reservation to enter where use limits are imposed in accordance with other NPS regulations. Such permitting enhances the ability to the NPS to education users on potential hazards, search and rescue efforts, and resource protection. Comments are invited on: (1) The practical utility of the information being gathered; (2) the accuracy of the burden hour estimate; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Description of Respondents: Individuals wishing to use backcountry areas within national parks. Estimated annual number of respondents: 285,000. Estimated annual number of responses: 285,000. Estimated average burden hours per response: 5 minutes. Estimated frequency of response: 1 time. Estimated annual resorting burden: 22,800 hours per year. Dated: January 29, 2007. Leonard E.
