Abstract: With the passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct), the Minerals Management Service (MMS) was given responsibility for the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) through the amendment of section 31 of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1356a, Appendix A). The CIAP recognizes that impacts from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas activities fall disproportionately on the coastal states and localities nearest to where the activities occur, and where associated facilities are located. The CIAP legislation appropriates money for eligible states and coastal political subdivisions for coastal restoration/improvement projects. The MMS shall disburse $250 million to eligible producing states and coastal political subdivisions (CPSs) through a grant program. The funds E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1 7760 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2008 / Notices allocated to each state are based on the proportion of qualified OCS revenues offshore the individual state to total qualified OCS revenues from all states. In order to receive funds, the states submit CIAPs detailing how the funds will be expended. Alabama, Alaska, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas are the only eligible states under EPAct. Counties, parishes or equivalent units of government within those states lying all or in part within the coastal zone, as defined by section 304(1) of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) 1972, as amended, are the Coastal Political Subdivisions (CPSs) eligible for CIAP funding, a total of 67 local jurisdictions. All funds will be disbursed through a grant process. In September 2006, CIAP draft guidelines were written which were then amended in May 2007. As this program has evolved and developed, more information needs to be submitted by the government jurisdictions to meet all the requirements of the CIAP State Plan Guidelines as well as requirements on the procurement contracts. To approve a plan, legislation requires that the Secretary of the Interior must be able to determine that the funds will be used in accordance with EPAct criteria and that projects will use the funds according to the EPAct. To confirm appropriate use of funds, MMS requires affirmation of grantees meeting Federal, state, and local laws and adequate project descriptions. This information collection request revises the original ICR to include the additional information needed to fulfill the requirements of the MMS CIAP grant program. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2). No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are required to obtain or retain benefits. Frequency: On occasion. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 6 states and 67 CPSs. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 12,600 hours. 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.

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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:44 Feb 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 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, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 system and technology acquisition, expected useful life of capital equipment, discount rate(s), and the period over which you incur costs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP).
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0170.
    Abstract: With the passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 
(EPAct), the Minerals Management Service (MMS) was given responsibility 
for the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) through the amendment 
of section 31 of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 
1356a, Appendix A).
    The CIAP recognizes that impacts from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) 
oil and gas activities fall disproportionately on the coastal states 
and localities nearest to where the activities occur, and where 
associated facilities are located. The CIAP legislation appropriates 
money for eligible states and coastal political subdivisions for 
coastal restoration/improvement projects. The MMS shall disburse $250 
million to eligible producing states and coastal political subdivisions 
(CPSs) through a grant program. The funds

[[Page 7760]]

allocated to each state are based on the proportion of qualified OCS 
revenues offshore the individual state to total qualified OCS revenues 
from all states. In order to receive funds, the states submit CIAPs 
detailing how the funds will be expended. Alabama, Alaska, California, 
Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas are the only eligible states under 
EPAct. Counties, parishes or equivalent units of government within 
those states lying all or in part within the coastal zone, as defined 
by section 304(1) of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) 1972, as 
amended, are the Coastal Political Subdivisions (CPSs) eligible for 
CIAP funding, a total of 67 local jurisdictions. All funds will be 
disbursed through a grant process.
    In September 2006, CIAP draft guidelines were written which were 
then amended in May 2007. As this program has evolved and developed, 
more information needs to be submitted by the government jurisdictions 
to meet all the requirements of the CIAP State Plan Guidelines as well 
as requirements on the procurement contracts. To approve a plan, 
legislation requires that the Secretary of the Interior must be able to 
determine that the funds will be used in accordance with EPAct criteria 
and that projects will use the funds according to the EPAct. To confirm 
appropriate use of funds, MMS requires affirmation of grantees meeting 
Federal, state, and local laws and adequate project descriptions.
    This information collection request revises the original ICR to 
include the additional information needed to fulfill the requirements 
of the MMS CIAP grant program.
    We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary 
under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its 
implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2). No items of a sensitive 
nature are collected. Responses are required to obtain or retain 
benefits.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 6 
states and 67 CPSs.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Hour'' Burden: The 
currently approved annual reporting burden for this collection is 
12,600 hours. 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.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: We 
have identified no ``non-hour cost'' burdens for this collection.
    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
