Form Number: Web-based collection form; no form number. Abstract: Respondents to this form voluntarily supply the U.S. Geological Survey, National Biological Information Infrastructure Program with data and information regarding observations of malformed amphibians. Once the information is peer-reviewed by a professional herpetologist, this information will be published online in the North American Reporting Center for Amphibian Malformations database for use by Government agencies, natural resources managers, researchers, education programs, and the general public. We will protect information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection.’’ Responses are voluntary. No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked. We intend to release data collected on the NARCAM online form only in a format that is not reporter-specific; no information that would identify an individual reporter will be released to the public. Frequency: Voluntary submissions. Most reporters submit one-time observational reports; however, a small percentage submits multiple reports as malformations are observed. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 150 public citizens, natural resources managers, land managers, and biologists annually. Estimated Number of Responses: Historical average of 300 annually; many respondents, particularly researchers and resource managers, submit more than one response annually. Annual burden hours: 150. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved ‘‘hour’’ burden is 150 hours. We estimate the public reporting burden averages 30 minutes per response. This includes the time for reviewing instructions, gathering and maintaining data, and completing and reviewing the information. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have not identified any ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct a sponsor, and you are not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:23 Oct 25, 2007 Jkt 214001 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) (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 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 estimated 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. To comply with the public consultation process, on August 22, 2007, we published a Federal Register notice (72 FR pp. 47065–47066) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day public comment period. We have received no comments in response to the notice. USGS Information Collection Clearance Officer: Alfred Travnicek, 703–648–7231.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The planning area is located in Southwest Colorado in Dolores and Montezuma counties. The plan will provide a framework to guide subsequent management decisions on approximately 164,000 acres managed by the BLM. Within the Monument boundary, there are approximately 400 acres of National Park Service lands (Hovenweep National Monument) and 18,000 acres of private inholdings. The Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is currently being managing under the BLM 1985 San Juan/San Miguel RMP and the Interim Guidance provided after the Monument was established. • San Juan/San Miguel Resource Management Plan. The current RMP was approved in 1985 and has been amended five times. The Wilderness Study Areas (WSA) within the Monument are being managed under interim guidance provided by the Interim Management Policy and Guidance for Lands under Wilderness Review until such time that Congress makes a final wilderness decision. The DRMP/DEIS discusses how those lands would be managed if Congress released them from wilderness study. The Canyons of the Ancients National Monument has worked extensively with the community, interested and affected publics, Native American tribes, and cooperating agencies in the development of the DRMP/DEIS. The Monument has conducted a broad community-based public input process. Cooperating agencies include The Colorado State Historical Society and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Five alternatives are analyzed in the DRMP/DEIS. • Alternative I: This is the No Action Alternative. This alternative is comprised of current management actions and goals and assumes existing or approved land uses would continue. E:\FR\FM\26OCN1.SGM 26OCN1
