The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals and number of tribes that were determined to be culturally affiliated in a Notice of Inventory Completion previously published in the Federal Register of February 1, 2006 (FR Doc E6–1273, pages 5369–5373). The minimum number of individuals is raised from 47 to 48. The Apache Tribe of Oklahoma and Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico have been added to the list of culturally affiliated Indian Tribes. In the Federal Register of February 1, 2006, paragraph number 31 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: In 1951, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were removed from an unknown area near the old toll station in Boulder Canyon, Boulder County, CO. The human remains were either transferred to the University of Colorado Museum by another University of Colorado department or anonymously donated prior to 1993. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In the Federal Register of February 1, 2006, paragraph numbers 56 to 58 are corrected by substituting the following paragraphs: Officials of the University of Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of a minimum of 48 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the University of Colorado Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 79 objects described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony. Lastly, officials of the University of Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Arapahoe Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming; VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:57 Jun 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 Cheyenne–Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma; Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the Cheyenne River Reservation, South Dakota; Comanche Nation, Oklahoma; Crow Tribe of Montana; Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma; Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Montana; Oglala Sioux Tribe of the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota; Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma; Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota; Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado; Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North & South Dakota; Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota; Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah; and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of a currently approved collection (OMB No. 1006– 0023). AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces the Bureau of Reclamation (we, our, or us) has forwarded the following Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval: Forms to Determine Compliance by Certain Landholders, 43 CFR part 426, OMB Control Number: 1006–0023. As a result of the regulatory requirements to ensure compliance with Federal reclamation law and assessment of the appropriate water rate [43 CFR 426.6(b)(2) and 43 CFR 426.9(b)], a new ‘‘Religious or E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 126 / Monday, July 2, 2007 / Notices Charitable Organization Identification Sheet’’ (Form 7–2578) has been developed for approval as part of this information collection. The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its expected cost and burden. DATES: OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove this information collection, but may respond after 30 days; therefore, public comments must be received on or before August 1, 2007 to assure maximum consideration. ADDRESSES: You may send comments regarding the burden estimate, or any other aspect of the information collection, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Desk Officer for the Department of the Interior at the Office of Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, via facsimile to (202) 395–6566 or e-mail to OIRA_DOCKET@omb.eop.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie McPhee at: (303) 445–2897. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Forms to Determine Compliance by Certain Landholders, 43 CFR part 426. The former title of this information collection was ‘‘Limited Recipient Identification Sheet, Trust Information Sheet, Public Entity Information Sheet for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426.’’ Because of the addition of the proposed new form to this information collection as described below, we have changed the title of this information collection to ‘‘Forms to Determine Compliance by Certain Landholders, 43 CFR part 426.’’ This title change will allow us to capture the purpose of the forms in this information collection without listing lengthy form names. Abstract: Identification of limited recipients—Some entities that receive Reclamation irrigation water may believe that they are under the RRA forms submittal threshold and, consequently, may not submit the appropriate RRA form(s). However, some of these entities may in fact have a different RRA forms submittal threshold than what they believe it to be due to the number of natural persons benefiting from each entity and the location of the land held by each entity. In addition, some entities that are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms due to the size of their landholdings (directly and indirectly owned and leased land) may in fact be receiving Reclamation irrigation water for which the full-cost rate must be paid VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:57 Jun 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 because the start of Reclamation irrigation water deliveries occurred after October 1, 1981 [43 CFR 426.6(b)(2)]. The information obtained through completion of the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet (Form 7–2536) allows us to establish entities’ compliance with Federal reclamation law. The Limited Recipient Identification Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed revisions to the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet will be included starting in the 2008 water year, and are designed to facilitate ease of completion. Trust review—We are required to review and approve all trusts [43 CFR 426.7(b)(2)] in order to ensure trusts meet the regulatory criteria specified in 43 CFR 426.7. Land held in trust generally will be attributed to the beneficiaries of the trust rather than the trustee if the criteria are met. When we become aware of trusts with a relatively small landholding (40 acres or less), we may extend to those trusts the option to complete and submit for our review the Trust Information Sheet (Form 7–2537) instead of actual trust documents. If we find nothing on the completed Trust Information Sheet that would warrant the further investigation of a particular trust, that trustee will not be burdened with submitting trust documents to us for in-depth review. The Trust Information Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed revisions to the Trust Information Sheet will be included starting in the 2008 water year, and are designed to facilitate ease of completion. Acreage limitation provisions applicable to public entities—Land farmed by a public entity can be considered exempt from the application of the acreage limitation provisions provided the public entity meets certain criteria pertaining to the revenue generated through the entity’s farming activities (43 CFR 426.10 and the Act of July 7, 1970, Pub. L. 91–310). We are required to ascertain whether or not public entities that receive Reclamation irrigation water meet such revenue criteria regardless of how much land the public entities hold (directly or indirectly own or lease) [43 CFR 426.10(a)]. In order to minimize the burden on public entities, standard RRA forms are submitted by a public entity only when the public entity holds more than 40 acres subject to the acreage limitation provisions westwide, which makes it difficult to apply the revenue criteria as required to those public entities that hold less than 40 acres. When we become aware of such public entities, we may extend to those public entities the option to complete and PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36033 submit for our review the Public Entity Information Sheet (Form 7–2565), which allows us to establish compliance with Federal reclamation law for those public entities that hold 40 acres or less and thus do not submit a standard RRA form because they are below the RRA forms submittal threshold. In addition, for those public entities that do not meet the exemption criteria, we must determine the proper rate to charge for Reclamation irrigation water deliveries. The Public Entity Information Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed revisions to the Public Entity Information Sheet will be effective starting in the 2008 water year and are designed to facilitate ease of completion. Acreage limitation provisions applicable to religious or charitable organizations (new form)—Some religious or charitable organizations that receive Reclamation irrigation water may believe that they are under the RRA forms submittal threshold and, consequently, may not submit the appropriate RRA form(s). However, some of these organizations may in fact have a different RRA forms submittal threshold than what they believe it to be depending on whether these organizations meet all of the required criteria for full special application of the acreage limitations provisions to religious or charitable organizations [43 CFR 426.9(b)]. In addition, some organizations that (1) do not meet the criteria to be treated as a religious or charitable organization under the acreage limitation provisions, and (2) are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms due to the size of their landholdings (directly and indirectly owned and leased land), may in fact be receiving Reclamation irrigation water for which the full-cost rate must be paid because the start of 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Forms to Determine Compliance by Certain Landholders, 43 CFR 
part 426. The former title of this information collection was ``Limited 
Recipient Identification Sheet, Trust Information Sheet, Public Entity 
Information Sheet for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426.'' Because of 
the addition of the proposed new form to this information collection as 
described below, we have changed the title of this information 
collection to ``Forms to Determine Compliance by Certain Landholders, 
43 CFR part 426.'' This title change will allow us to capture the 
purpose of the forms in this information collection without listing 
lengthy form names.
    Abstract: Identification of limited recipients--Some entities that 
receive Reclamation irrigation water may believe that they are under 
the RRA forms submittal threshold and, consequently, may not submit the 
appropriate RRA form(s). However, some of these entities may in fact 
have a different RRA forms submittal threshold than what they believe 
it to be due to the number of natural persons benefiting from each 
entity and the location of the land held by each entity. In addition, 
some entities that are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms 
due to the size of their landholdings (directly and indirectly owned 
and leased land) may in fact be receiving Reclamation irrigation water 
for which the full-cost rate must be paid because the start of 
Reclamation irrigation water deliveries occurred after October 1, 1981 
[43 CFR 426.6(b)(2)]. The information obtained through completion of 
the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet (Form 7-2536) allows us to 
establish entities' compliance with Federal reclamation law. The 
Limited Recipient Identification Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. 
The proposed revisions to the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet 
will be included starting in the 2008 water year, and are designed to 
facilitate ease of completion.
    Trust review--We are required to review and approve all trusts [43 
CFR 426.7(b)(2)] in order to ensure trusts meet the regulatory criteria 
specified in 43 CFR 426.7. Land held in trust generally will be 
attributed to the beneficiaries of the trust rather than the trustee if 
the criteria are met. When we become aware of trusts with a relatively 
small landholding (40 acres or less), we may extend to those trusts the 
option to complete and submit for our review the Trust Information 
Sheet (Form 7-2537) instead of actual trust documents. If we find 
nothing on the completed Trust Information Sheet that would warrant the 
further investigation of a particular trust, that trustee will not be 
burdened with submitting trust documents to us for in-depth review. The 
Trust Information Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed 
revisions to the Trust Information Sheet will be included starting in 
the 2008 water year, and are designed to facilitate ease of completion.
    Acreage limitation provisions applicable to public entities--Land 
farmed by a public entity can be considered exempt from the application 
of the acreage limitation provisions provided the public entity meets 
certain criteria pertaining to the revenue generated through the 
entity's farming activities (43 CFR 426.10 and the Act of July 7, 1970, 
Pub. L. 91-310). We are required to ascertain whether or not public 
entities that receive Reclamation irrigation water meet such revenue 
criteria regardless of how much land the public entities hold (directly 
or indirectly own or lease) [43 CFR 426.10(a)]. In order to minimize 
the burden on public entities, standard RRA forms are submitted by a 
public entity only when the public entity holds more than 40 acres 
subject to the acreage limitation provisions westwide, which makes it 
difficult to apply the revenue criteria as required to those public 
entities that hold less than 40 acres. When we become aware of such 
public entities, we may extend to those public entities the option to 
complete and submit for our review the Public Entity Information Sheet 
(Form 7-2565), which allows us to establish compliance with Federal 
reclamation law for those public entities that hold 40 acres or less 
and thus do not submit a standard RRA form because they are below the 
RRA forms submittal threshold. In addition, for those public entities 
that do not meet the exemption criteria, we must determine the proper 
rate to charge for Reclamation irrigation water deliveries. The Public 
Entity Information Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed 
revisions to the Public Entity Information Sheet will be effective 
starting in the 2008 water year and are designed to facilitate ease of 
completion.
    Acreage limitation provisions applicable to religious or charitable 
organizations (new form)--Some religious or charitable organizations 
that receive Reclamation irrigation water may believe that they are 
under the RRA forms submittal threshold and, consequently, may not 
submit the appropriate RRA form(s). However, some of these 
organizations may in fact have a different RRA forms submittal 
threshold than what they believe it to be depending on whether these 
organizations meet all of the required criteria for full special 
application of the acreage limitations provisions to religious or 
charitable organizations [43 CFR 426.9(b)]. In addition, some 
organizations that (1) do not meet the criteria to be treated as a 
religious or charitable organization under the acreage limitation 
provisions, and (2) are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms 
due to the size of their landholdings (directly and indirectly owned 
and leased land), may in fact be receiving Reclamation irrigation water 
for which the full-cost rate must be paid because the start of 
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.

Changes to the Forms and the Instructions to Those Forms

    Minor editorial changes were made to the currently approved forms 
and the instructions to those forms prior to the 60-day comment period 
initiated by the notice published in the Federal Register (72 FR 9964, 
Mar. 6, 2007). Those changes were designed to assist the respondents by 
increasing their understanding of the forms, clarifying the 
instructions for use when completing the forms, and clarifying the 
information that is required to be submitted with the forms. We 
received no public comments from the 60-day public comment period. The 
proposed revisions to the forms will be included 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 charitable organizations identified by Reclamation that

Comments

    Comments are invited on:
    (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of our functions, including whether the 
information will have practical use;
    (b) the accuracy of our burden estimate for the proposed collection 
of information;
    (c) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
    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. Reclamation will display a valid 
OMB control number on the RRA forms. A Federal Register notice with a 
60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of 
information was published in the Federal Register (72 FR 9964, Mar. 6, 
2007). No public comments were received.
    OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove this information 
collection, but may respond after 30 days; therefore, public comment 
should be submitted to OMB within 30 days in order to assure maximum 
consideration.
    Before including your address, telephone 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 publicly 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.

Director, Office of Program and Policy Services, Denver Office.
