SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Issuance Reconciliation Report. OMB Number: 0584–0080. Form Number: FNS–46. Expiration Date: December 31, 2007. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 7(d) of the Food Stamp Act of 1977, as amended, (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 2016(d), requires State agencies to report on their benefits issuance operations not less than monthly. Section 11(a) of the Act (7 U.S.C. 2020(a)) requires State agencies to assume responsibility for the issuance, control, and accountability of benefits. Regulations at 7 CFR 274.4(a) and 274.4(b)(2) require State agencies to account for all issuance through the reconciliations process and to submit a report on this process using Form FNS– 46, Issuance Reconciliation Report. These reports must be submitted to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) monthly and must reach FNS no later than 90 days following the end of each report month. The FNS–46 report reflects the total issuance, returns, and unauthorized issuance amounts resulting in the net Federal obligation. The proposed revision to the information collection burden associated with Form FNS–46, Issuance Reconciliation Report, reflects a reduction because of the requirement in Section 7(i) of the Act, (7 U.S.C. 2016(i)) for State agencies to change from coupon to EBT systems. As States implemented their EBT systems, they generally reduced their issuance reconciliation points to a single location. Therefore, the number of respondents and responses declined as the number of States with EBT systems increased. Respondents: State and local government employees or contractors.
