The change in burden hours reflects a decrease of 51,683 hours due to agency adjustment and an increase of 3,600 hours due to agency discretion. The additional 3,600 hours cover performance-based test methods previously counted under ICR 2180.02. The reduction in hours is due mostly to reporting requirements that applied at the start of the program that are no longer applicable to most parties (e.g., initial registration, application for flexibilities like small refiner status).

Title: State Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Programs (SBTCP) Annual Reporting Form (Renewal). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1748.05, OMB Control No. 2060–0337. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2007. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the U.S. Congress included, as part of Section 507, the requirement that each state establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Program to assist small businesses in complying with the Act. These programs are generally known as state Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs (SBEAP). EPA must provide the Congress with periodic reports from the EPA Small Business Ombudsman (SBO) on these programs, including their effectiveness, difficulties encountered, and other relevant information. Each state assistance program will submit requested information to EPA for compilation and summarization. This collection of information is mandatory under Section 507(a), (d), and (e) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, Public Law 101–549, November 15, 1990. This Act directs EPA to monitor E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 4210 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 16 / Thursday, January 24, 2008 / Notices the state SBEAPs and to periodically report to Congress on the effectiveness of these programs. This responsibility has been delegated to the EPA SBO. Information in the annual Report to Congress is aggregated and is not of a confidential nature. None of the information collected by this action results in/or requests sensitive information of any nature from the states. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 80 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: State Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Programs (SBTCP). Estimated Number of Respondents: 53. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 4,240. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $144,997, includes $0 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 2,120 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The new total estimate of 80 hours per state to complete the Annual Survey Form presented in this ICR represents an increase of 40 hours from what was estimated to complete the previous form. A workgroup comprising representatives from several state 507 programs reviewed the reporting form and the burden estimates for this ICR. The group determined that the burden to complete the previous form was underestimated and the addition of new outcome measures to the revised form will require additional time to track and report.

    Abstract: As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the U.S. 
Congress included, as part of Section 507, the requirement that each 
state establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and 
Environmental Compliance Assistance Program to assist small businesses 
in complying with the Act. These programs are generally known as state 
Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs (SBEAP). EPA must 
provide the Congress with periodic reports from the EPA Small Business 
Ombudsman (SBO) on these programs, including their effectiveness, 
difficulties encountered, and other relevant information. Each state 
assistance program will submit requested information to EPA for 
compilation and summarization. This collection of information is 
mandatory under Section 507(a), (d), and (e) of the Clean Air Act as 
amended in 1990, Public Law 101-549, November 15, 1990. This Act 
directs EPA to monitor

[[Page 4210]]

the state SBEAPs and to periodically report to Congress on the 
effectiveness of these programs. This responsibility has been delegated 
to the EPA SBO. Information in the annual Report to Congress is 
aggregated and is not of a confidential nature. None of the information 
collected by this action results in/or requests sensitive information 
of any nature from the states.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 80 
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: State Small Business Stationary 
Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Programs 
(SBTCP).
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 53.
    Frequency of Response: Annual.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 4,240.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $144,997, includes $0 annualized 
capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 2,120 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. The new total estimate of 80 hours per state to 
complete the Annual Survey Form presented in this ICR represents an 
increase of 40 hours from what was estimated to complete the previous 
form. A workgroup comprising representatives from several state 507 
programs reviewed the reporting form and the burden estimates for this 
ICR. The group determined that the burden to complete the previous form 
was underestimated and the addition of new outcome measures to the 
revised form will require additional time to track and report. The new 
burden estimate represents an increase to 54 hours to complete the 
information requested in the previous form and an additional 26 hours 
to complete the new program outcome measures recommended by the state 
507 programs.
