ICR number: EPA ICR No. 1903.02, OMB Control No. 2050–0162. ICR Status: This ICR is for a reinstatement of a previously approved collection. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), Office of Emergency Management (OEM) plans to collect information through a one-time, webbased, voluntary nationwide survey of representatives from Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). The establishment of LEPCs is required under The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). These broad committees, composed of representatives from the public safety, health care, and industry sectors, as well as environmental and community organizations, are charged with developing and maintaining emergency plans for their communities. LEPCs foster a valuable dialogue between members of government, industry, and the public to prevent and prepare for the accidental (and terroristrelated) releases of hazardous chemicals. This proposed information collection will build upon previous LEPC surveys, which measured levels of compliance and proactivity of LEPCs. Since the last survey in 1999, no systematic nationwide analysis of LEPC activity has been conducted. In the six years since September 11th, local emergency planning has evolved, most notably, in the amount of information that is now available to assist LEPCs in preparing for and preventing chemical emergencies. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The primary goals of this research are to: (1) Track the progress of LEPCs by assessing their current activity compared to some of the data collected in 1999 survey; and (2) probe current LEPC practices and preferences regarding several important sets of issues, including: Communications with local citizens, proactive accident prevention efforts, and the effectiveness of selected OEM products and services. This collection will also contribute to reporting requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, which stipulates that agencies evaluate program activities in terms of outputs and outcomes. This survey is necessary to evaluate whether OEM is successfully providing national leadership and assistance to local communities in preparing for and preventing chemical emergencies. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.25 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: People who hold a leadership position on Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). It is anticipated that the majority of respondents will be LEPC chairs. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,500. Frequency of Response: One time collection. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 875. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $40,285, which is exclusively for labor, as there are no annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: As this ICR was previously discontinued, there are no currently approved burdens and costs. Accordingly, this ICR requests a new one-time labor burden of 875 hours.

This order constitutes final action on the petition submitted by Mr. Mark Solomon, representing the Idaho Conservation League, Friends of the Clearwater, and himself, on February 7, 2003, requesting that EPA object to the issuance of the Potlatch permits.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:15 May 16, 2007 Jkt 211001 The Clean Air Act affords EPA a 45-day period to review and object to, as appropriate, operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator within 60 days after the expiration of this review period to object to a state operating permit if EPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or that the grounds for the objection or other issue arose after the comment period. On February 7, 2003, EPA received a petition from Mr. Mark Solomon, representing the Idaho Conservation League, Friends of the Clearwater, and himself, requesting that EPA object to the issuance of the Potlatch permits. The petition alleged that: (1) The three Potlatch divisions should be covered by a single Title V operating permit; and (2) IDEQ used the wrong model in determining the ambient air quality impacts of the Potlatch facilities. The order explains the reasons behind EPA’s decision to deny the petition for objection on all grounds. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Ronald Kreizenbeck, Deputy Regional Administrator, Region 10.

Committees.
    ICR number: EPA ICR No. 1903.02, OMB Control No. 2050-0162.
    ICR Status: This ICR is for a reinstatement of a previously 
approved collection. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person 
is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers 
for EPA's regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the

    Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of 
Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), Office of Emergency 
Management (OEM) plans to collect information through a one-time, web-
based, voluntary nationwide survey of representatives from Local 
Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). The establishment of LEPCs is 
required under The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act 
of 1986 (EPCRA). These broad committees, composed of representatives 
from the public safety, health care, and industry sectors, as well as 
environmental and community organizations, are charged with developing 
and maintaining emergency plans for their communities. LEPCs foster a 
valuable dialogue between members of government, industry, and the 
public to prevent and prepare for the accidental (and terrorist-
related) releases of hazardous chemicals.
    This proposed information collection will build upon previous LEPC 
surveys, which measured levels of compliance and proactivity of LEPCs. 
Since the last survey in 1999, no systematic nationwide analysis of 
LEPC activity has been conducted. In the six years since September 
11th, local emergency planning has evolved, most notably, in the amount 
of information that is now available to assist LEPCs in preparing for 
and preventing chemical emergencies.
    The primary goals of this research are to: (1) Track the progress 
of LEPCs by assessing their current activity compared to some of the 
data collected in 1999 survey; and (2) probe current LEPC practices and 
preferences regarding several important sets of issues, including: 
Communications with local citizens, proactive accident prevention 
efforts, and the effectiveness of selected OEM products and services.
    This collection will also contribute to reporting requirements of 
the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, which 
stipulates that agencies evaluate program activities in terms of 
outputs and outcomes. This survey is necessary to evaluate whether OEM 
is successfully providing national leadership and assistance to local 
communities in preparing for and preventing chemical emergencies.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.25 
hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: People who hold a leadership 
position on Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). It is 
anticipated that the majority of respondents will be LEPC chairs.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,500.
    Frequency of Response: One time collection.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 875.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $40,285, which is exclusively for 
labor, as there are no annualized capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: As this ICR was previously discontinued, 
there are no currently approved burdens and costs. Accordingly, this 
ICR requests a new one-time labor burden of 875 hours.
