ICR Numbers: EPA ICR no. 1857.04, OMB Program Control No. 2060–0445. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on May 31, 2007. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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, are displayed either by publication in theFederal 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 regulation is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The NOX Budget Trading Program is a market-based cap and trade program created to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) from power plants and other large combustion sources in the eastern United States. NOX is a prime ingredient in the formation of ground-level ozone (smog), a pervasive air pollution problem in many areas of the eastern United States. The NOX Budget Trading program was designed to reduce NOX emissions during the warm summer months, referred to as the ozone season, when ground-level ozone concentration are highest. This information collection is necessary to implement the NOX Budget Trading Program. While States were not required to adopt an emissions trading VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:52 May 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 program, every State adopted the basic Federal model trading program for fossil fuel-fired NOX sources. This trading program burden includes the paper work burden related to; transferring and tracking allowances, the allocation of allowances to affected units, permitting, annual year end compliance certification, and meeting the monitoring and reporting requirements of the program. This information collection is mandatory under 40 CFR part 96. All data received by EPA will be treated as public information. 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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 41 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 tie 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: Electric Utilities, Industrial Sources, and other persons. Estimated Number of Respondents: 700. Frequency of Response: On occasion, quarterly, and annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 471,734. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $57,069,211, includes $28,278,800 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 11,335 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This is due to adjustments, including changes to the number of responses and the time it takes to respond to a particular activity. PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29161 Dated: May 17, 2007.

Title: Federal Implementation Plans under the Clean Air Act for Indian Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. ICR number: EPA ICR No. 2020.03, OMB Control No. 2060–0558. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on November 30, 2007. 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, are 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: EPA promulgated Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) under the Clean Air Act for Indian reservations located in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington in 40 CFR part 49 (70 FR 18074, April 8, 2005). The FIPs in the final rule, also referred to as the Federal Air Rules for Indian Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (FARR), include information collection requirements associated with the fugitive particulate matter rule in § 49.126, the woodwaste burner rule in VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:52 May 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 § 49.127; the rule for limiting sulfur in fuels in § 49.130; the rule for open burning in § 49.131; the rules for general open burning permits, agricultural burning permits, and forestry and silvicultural burning permits in §§ 49.132, 49.133, and 49.134; the registration rule in § 49.138; and the rule for non-Title V operating permits in § 49.139. EPA uses this information to manage the activities and sources of air pollution on the Indian reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. EPA believes these information collection requirements are appropriate because they will enable EPA to develop and maintain accurate records of air pollution sources and their emissions, track emissions trends and changes, identify potential air quality problems, allow EPA to issue permits or approvals, and ensure appropriate records are available to verify compliance with these FIPs. The information collection requirements listed above are all mandatory. Regulated entities can assert claims of business confidentiality and EPA would treat these claims in accordance with the provisions of 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 2,156 hours, or an average of approximately 2.43 hours per affected source. EPA estimates that the owners or operators of facilities affected by this final rule will incur a total, for all affected facilities, of $90,552 in annualized labor costs to comply with PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the information collection requirements of this rule over the next three years. 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 889. Frequency of response: Annual and on occasion. Estimated total annual burden hours: 2,156. Estimated total annual costs: $90,552. This includes an estimated labor cost of $90,552, and capital investment and operation and maintenance costs are assumed to be zero. E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1 29164 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 100 / Thursday, May 24, 2007 / Notices Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval? There is a decrease of 621 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. EPA’s original estimate included many ‘‘onetime’’ costs (e.g., time spent gaining familiarity with the applicable rules) that are not expected to be recurring. The burden estimate for the next three years does not include these ‘‘one-time’’ costs, and therefore the burden estimate has decreased. What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: May 17, 2007.

action.
    Title: Federal Implementation Plans under the Clean Air Act for 
Indian Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
    ICR number: EPA ICR No. 2020.03, OMB Control No. 2060-0558.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on November 
30, 2007. 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, are 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: EPA promulgated Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) under 
the Clean Air Act for Indian reservations located in Idaho, Oregon, and 
Washington in 40 CFR part 49 (70 FR 18074, April 8, 2005). The FIPs in 
the final rule, also referred to as the Federal Air Rules for Indian 
Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (FARR), include 
information collection requirements associated with the fugitive 
particulate matter rule in Sec.  49.126, the woodwaste burner rule in 
Sec.  49.127; the rule for limiting sulfur in fuels in Sec.  49.130; 
the rule for open burning in Sec.  49.131; the rules for general open 
burning permits, agricultural burning permits, and forestry and 
silvicultural burning permits in Sec. Sec.  49.132, 49.133, and 49.134; 
the registration rule in Sec.  49.138; and the rule for non-Title V 
operating permits in Sec.  49.139. EPA uses this information to manage 
the activities and sources of air pollution on the Indian reservations 
in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. EPA believes these information 
collection requirements are appropriate because they will enable EPA to 
develop and maintain accurate records of air pollution sources and 
their emissions, track emissions trends and changes, identify potential 
air quality problems, allow EPA to issue permits or approvals, and 
ensure appropriate records are available to verify compliance with 
these FIPs. The information collection requirements listed above are 
all mandatory. Regulated entities can assert claims of business 
confidentiality and EPA would treat these claims in accordance with the 
provisions of 40 CFR part 2, subpart B.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 2,156 
hours, or an average of approximately 2.43 hours per affected source. 
EPA estimates that the owners or operators of facilities affected by 
this final rule will incur a total, for all affected facilities, of 
$90,552 in annualized labor costs to comply with the information 
collection requirements of this rule over the next three years. 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.
    The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency's estimate, 
which is only briefly summarized here:
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 889.
    Frequency of response: Annual and on occasion.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 2,156.
    Estimated total annual costs: $90,552. This includes an estimated 
labor cost of $90,552, and capital investment and operation and 
maintenance costs are assumed to be zero.

[[Page 29164]]

Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval?

    There is a decrease of 621 hours in the total estimated respondent 
burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by 
OMB. EPA's original estimate included many ``one-time'' costs (e.g., 
time spent gaining familiarity with the applicable rules) that are not 
expected to be recurring. The burden estimate for the next three years 
does not include these ``one-time'' costs, and therefore the burden 
estimate has decreased.

What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR?

    EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as 
appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for 
review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will 
issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 
1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the 
opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any 
questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the 
technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
