SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BLM is implementing this action on approximately 100,000 acres of public land in the Indian Creek Corridor area in San Juan County, which is located in southeast Utah. BLM’s Monticello Field Office has observed and documented considerable adverse effects from crosscountry OHV use in this area to soils, riparian, vegetation, visual and cultural resources. Based on this information, BLM’s authorized officer has determined that cross-country OHV use in this area is causing, or will cause, considerable adverse effects upon soils, riparian, vegetation, visual and cultural resources. Consequently, OHV travel in rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:43 Sep 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 this area is being limited to existing roads and trails. A map showing the restriction area is available for public inspection at the BLM’s Monticello Field Office, at the above address. OHV use on the remainder of the public lands in San Juan County, Utah administered by BLM will be managed according to existing Federal Register orders and the 1991 San Juan Resource Area Resource Management Plan. This restriction order does not apply to: (1) Any federal, state or local government law enforcement officer engaged in enforcing this closure order or member of an organized rescue or fire fighting force while in the performance of an official duty. (2) Any Bureau of Land Management employee, agent, contractor, or cooperator while in the performance of an official duty.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR Part 281, Leasing for Minerals Other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur in the Outer Continental Shelf. OMB Control Number: 1010–0082. Abstract: Section 8(k) of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1337), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) to grant to the qualified persons offering the highest cash bonuses on a basis of competitive bidding leases of any mineral other than oil, gas, and sulphur. This applies to any area of the Outer Continental Shelf not then under lease for such mineral upon such royalty, rental, and other terms and conditions as the Secretary may prescribe at the time of offering the area for lease. The Secretary is to administer the leasing provisions of the Act and prescribe the rule and regulations necessary to carry out those provisions. Regulations at 30 CFR Part 281 implement these statutory requirements. However, there has been no activity in the OCS for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur for many years and no information collected since we allowed the OMB approval to expire in 1991. Nevertheless, because these are regulatory requirements, the potential exists for information to be collected and we are requesting that OMB reinstate this collection of information. We use the information required by 30 CFR Part 281 to determine if statutory requirements are met prior to the issuance of a lease. Specifically, MMS uses the information to: • Evaluate the area and minerals requested by the lessee to assess the viability of offering leases for sale. ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 54284 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 184 / Monday, September 24, 2007 / Notices • Allows the State(s) to initiate the establishment of a joint group. • Ensure excessive overriding royalty interests are not created that would put economic constraints on all parties involved. • Document that a leasehold or geographical subdivision has been surrendered by the record title holder. We protect proprietary information according to the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing Citation 30 CFR 281 regulations (43 CFR Part 2), and 30 CFR Parts 280 and 282. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: On occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: As there are no active respondents, we estimated the potential annual number of respondents to be one. Respondents are OCS lessees. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The previous OMB inventory included 1,248 annual burden hours for the collection of information. The following chart details the individual components and respective hour burden estimates of this ICR. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden.

File written request for relinquishment. ................................................................ Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified one ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burden for this collection, a $50 application fee under § 281.41. It should be noted that this fee was never previously included since the non-hour cost burdens were not subject to reporting under the 1980 Paperwork Reduction Act. Furthermore, this fee has never been collected since we have not had any leases for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:43 Sep 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’. Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40 duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Agencies must also estimate the ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burdens to respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of information. Therefore, if you have costs to generate, maintain, E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 184 / Monday, September 24, 2007 / Notices and disclose this information, you should comment and provide your total capital and startup cost components or annual operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: We 
have identified one ``non-hour cost'' burden for this collection, a $50 
application fee under Sec.  281.41. It should be noted that this fee 
was never previously included since the non-hour cost burdens were not 
subject to reporting under the 1980 Paperwork Reduction Act. 
Furthermore, this fee has never been collected since we have not had 
any leases for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.
    Comments: Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 
3506(c)(2)(A) requires each agency ``* * * to provide notice * * * and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information * * *''. Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to 
perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) 
evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 
minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
    Agencies must also estimate the ``non-hour cost'' burdens to 
respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of 
information. Therefore, if you have costs to generate, maintain,

and disclose this information, you should comment and provide your 
total capital and startup cost components or annual operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of service components. You should describe 
the methods you use to estimate major cost factors, including system 
and technology acquisition, expected useful life of capital equipment, 
discount rate(s), and the period over which you incur costs. Capital 
and startup costs include, among other items, computers and software 
you purchase to prepare for collecting information, monitoring, and 
record storage facilities. You should not include estimates for 
equipment or services purchased: (i) Before October 1, 1995; (ii) to 
comply with requirements not associated with the information 
collection; (iii) for reasons other than to provide information or keep 
records for the Government; or (iv) as part of customary and usual 
business or private practices.
    We will summarize written responses to this notice and address them 
in our submission for OMB approval. As a result of your comments, we 
will make any necessary adjustments to the burden in our submission to 
OMB.
    Public Comment Procedures: Before including your address, phone 
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.
