Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 24, 2007 / Notices yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES estimated to average 293 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: Small industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units. Estimated Number of Respondents: 235. Frequency of Response: Initially, on occasion, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 159,972. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $19,653,054 which includes $1,491,005 annualized Capital Startup cost, $7,955,140 annualized Operating and Maintenance (O&M) cost and $10,206,909 annual Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no significant change in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent. There is, however, an adjustment in the labor hour estimate. The previous ICR shows a total of 156,610 annual hours. This renewal ICR shows a total of 159,972 annual hours. The small labor hour increase of 3,362 was caused by a mathematical error in the previous ICR. There is also a small change in the cost estimate. The previous ICR used a cost figure that was rounded-up ($9,446,000). This ICR uses the exact cost figure of ($9,446,145) resulting in a small cost increase of $145. Dated: October 18, 2007. Sara Hisel-McCoy, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division. [FR Doc.
