Surface ships, aircraft, and submarines conduct ASW and would be the principal users of the USWTR. The proposed action also would require logistical support for ASW training, for example, the handling (launch and recovery) of non-explosive exercise torpedoes. The EIS/OEIS will evaluate the potential environmental effects associated with: Physical environment; water resources; sound in the water; biological resources, including marine mammals, fish, and threatened and endangered species; coastal uses and resources; socioeconomic resources; and cultural resources. The analysis will include an evaluation of direct and indirect impacts, and will account for cumulative impacts from other actions. No decision will be made to implement any alternative until the EIS/OEIS process is completed and a Record of Decision is signed by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Installations and Environment). The Navy is re-opening a scoping period to identify new community concerns and local issues to be addressed in the EIS/OEIS. Federal agencies, state agencies, local agencies, and interested persons are encouraged to provide written comments to the Navy to identify specific issues or topics of environmental concern that should be addressed in the EIS/OEIS. Comments previously submitted in response to the October 2005 draft EIS will be considered as scoping comments, and need not be resubmitted. Written comments must be postmarked by October 22, 2007, and should be mailed to: Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Atlantic, 6506 Hampton Boulevard, Norfolk, Virginia 23508– 1278, Attention: USWTR EIS/OEIS Project Manager, telephone: 757–322– 4398, facsimile: 757–322–4894.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before November 20, 2007. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Acting Leader, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Responses: 57. Burden Hours: 4,560. Abstract: This request is for approval of record-keeping and reporting requirements that are contained in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) regulations which address the targeted teacher deferment provision of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The information collected is necessary for a state to support its annual request for designation of teacher shortage areas within the state. The collection of certification documentation by the borrower/scholar is necessary to support his/her request for a deferment/reduction in teaching obligation or cancellation of their loan debt.
