Based upon this preliminary determination, we do not intend to prepare further National Environmental Policy Act documentation. The Service will consider public comments in making its final determination on whether to prepare such additional documentation. We will evaluate the permit applications, HCPs, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we determine that the applications meet those requirements, we will issue the ITPs for incidental take of the Mount Hermon June beetle. We will also evaluate whether issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITPs complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use the results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITPs. individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, are available for public inspection in their entirety. The Service provides this notice pursuant to section 10(c) of the Act and pursuant to implementing regulations for NEPA (40 CFR 1506.6). Dated: March 20, 2008. Diane K.

The BLM disposes of such materials under the regulations at CFR parts 3600 and 3620. The BLM uses Form 3600–9 to collect information to: (1) Determine whether the sale of mineral materials is in the public interest; (2) Mitigate the environmental impacts of mineral materials development; (3) Get fair market value for materials sold; and (4) Prevent trespass removal of the materials. Applicants must submit a request in writing to the BLM to purchase mineral materials. Specific information requirements are not stated in the regulations, but sale agreements are made on Form 3600–9 approved by the BLM. Respondents maintain records as part of the customary and usual business and private practices, and purchases do not involve substantial additional information collection for most respondents. Cost estimates for information collection can vary widely because the nature of the applications varies considerably in size, location, and associated environmental conflicts; all of which can substantially affect the complexity and cost of the processing and the amount of information needed. Typically, larger purchases involve more records over a longer period of time. Respondents are not required to purchase additional computer hardware or software to comply with these information collection requirements. There are no capital and start-up costs involved with this information collection. While the BLM does not require the respondents to purchase special equipment to maintain these records and these respondents maintain records for tax purposes and production verification as part of their usual business, the BLM does ask respondents to query or search their databases or VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:08 Mar 26, 2008 Jkt 214001 other records maintenance systems to provide a summary record so that the BLM can process the requests for an exclusive mineral materials sales contract. We therefore treat this combined records maintenance and reporting effort as part of the respondents’ annual burden hours and costs in Item 12 of this document. For the purposes of this information collection request, ‘‘records maintenance’’ is considered one of the ‘‘non-form information requirements.’’ There is a filing fee associated with this information collection for independent sales that are not in a community pit or common use area. Such sales require a case-by-case analysis by the BLM of each application because each is unique. Sales vary widely depending on the magnitude and nature of the application (can range in quantity from tens to millions of tons of materials), the complexity of the mining plan proposed, the duration proposed (can range from days to years), the location of the proposed removal area, the associated environmental effects at that location, and the BLM’s related processing costs for that application, including the travel time to the site. The information collection considers a general cost range for respondents for 43 CFR 3601.40, including no cost (where respondent uses a BLM plan at a community pit), mid-range costs (respondent either prepares a simple plan for small sale at a new site, designs a plan for multiple sales at a new site, or makes adjustments to a BLM plan for a sale at a community pit), and upperlevel costs (to establish a new site, typically for a larger sale, requiring original mining and reclamation plan design). The BLM collected a total of $66,120 in fees associated with processing information requirements connected with this collection (exclusive sales contracts) in FY 2007. Although we cannot determine the filing fee per response in advance, for purposes of this information collection we have determined that the average annual filing fee per contract is $150.27 or about $150 ($66,120 divided by 440 exclusive sales contracts). We are PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 therefore assigning this non-burden hour cost to the sales contract Form 3600–9 Information Collection (IC) in the ROCIS database. We can attribute our change in nonburden hour costs to respondents from the previous collection to new BLM regulations (program change) that took effect in November 2005 authorizing the BLM to charge fees to recover our costs of processing some sales contracts. Those regulatory changes are contained in Minerals Management: Adjustment of Cost Recovery Fees Final Rule (43 CFR parts 3000, 3100, 3150, 3200, 350, 3580, 3600, 3730, 3810, and 3830). The BLM collected a total of $66,120 in cost recovery fees associated with this information collection in FY 2007. In order to estimate the annual non-burden hour cost to respondents for this collection, the BLM is assuming that it will collect on average $66,120 in costrecovery fees each year associated with this collection. Comments: We again specifically request your comments on the following: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the BLM’s estimate of the burden of collecting the information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) The quality, utility and clarity of the information we collect; and (4) How to minimize the burden of collecting the information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. 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.

    Abstract: The Materials Act of 1947, as amended (Act), 30 U.S.C. 
601 and 602, provides for the disposal of mineral materials, such as 
sand, gravel, and petrified wood from public lands by sale or free use. 
The BLM disposes of such materials under the regulations at CFR parts 
3600 and 3620.
    The BLM uses Form 3600-9 to collect information to:
    (1) Determine whether the sale of mineral materials is in the 
public interest;
    (2) Mitigate the environmental impacts of mineral materials 
development;
    (3) Get fair market value for materials sold; and
    (4) Prevent trespass removal of the materials.
    Applicants must submit a request in writing to the BLM to purchase 
mineral materials. Specific information requirements are not stated in 
the regulations, but sale agreements are made on Form 3600-9 approved 
by the BLM.
    Respondents maintain records as part of the customary and usual 
business and private practices, and purchases do not involve 
substantial additional information collection for most respondents. 
Cost estimates for information collection can vary widely because the 
nature of the applications varies considerably in size, location, and 
associated environmental conflicts; all of which can substantially 
affect the complexity and cost of the processing and the amount of 
information needed. Typically, larger purchases involve more records 
over a longer period of time. Respondents are not required to purchase 
additional computer hardware or software to comply with these 
information collection requirements. There are no capital and start-up 
costs involved with this information collection.
    While the BLM does not require the respondents to purchase special 
equipment to maintain these records and these respondents maintain 
records for tax purposes and production verification as part of their 
usual business, the BLM does ask respondents to query or search their 
databases or other records maintenance systems to provide a summary 
record so that the BLM can process the requests for an exclusive 
mineral materials sales contract. We therefore treat this combined 
records maintenance and reporting effort as part of the respondents' 
annual burden hours and costs in Item 12 of this document. For the 
purposes of this information collection request, ``records 
maintenance'' is considered one of the ``non-form information 
requirements.''
    There is a filing fee associated with this information collection 
for independent sales that are not in a community pit or common use 
area. Such sales require a case-by-case analysis by the BLM of each 
application because each is unique. Sales vary widely depending on the 
magnitude and nature of the application (can range in quantity from 
tens to millions of tons of materials), the complexity of the mining 
plan proposed, the duration proposed (can range from days to years), 
the location of the proposed removal area, the associated environmental 
effects at that location, and the BLM's related processing costs for 
that application, including the travel time to the site.
    The information collection considers a general cost range for 
respondents for 43 CFR 3601.40, including no cost (where respondent 
uses a BLM plan at a community pit), mid-range costs (respondent either 
prepares a simple plan for small sale at a new site, designs a plan for 
multiple sales at a new site, or makes adjustments to a BLM plan for a 
sale at a community pit), and upper-level costs (to establish a new 
site, typically for a larger sale, requiring original mining and 
reclamation plan design).
    The BLM collected a total of $66,120 in fees associated with 
processing information requirements connected with this collection 
(exclusive sales contracts) in FY 2007. Although we cannot determine 
the filing fee per response in advance, for purposes of this 
information collection we have determined that the average annual 
filing fee per contract is $150.27 or about $150 ($66,120 divided by 
440 exclusive sales contracts). We are therefore assigning this non-
burden hour cost to the sales contract Form 3600-9 Information 
Collection (IC) in the ROCIS database.
    We can attribute our change in non-burden hour costs to respondents 
from the previous collection to new BLM regulations (program change) 
that took effect in November 2005 authorizing the BLM to charge fees to 
recover our costs of processing some sales contracts. Those regulatory 
changes are contained in Minerals Management: Adjustment of Cost 
Recovery Fees Final Rule (43 CFR parts 3000, 3100, 3150, 3200, 350, 
3580, 3600, 3730, 3810, and 3830). The BLM collected a total of $66,120 
in cost recovery fees associated with this information collection in FY 
2007. In order to estimate the annual non-burden hour cost to 
respondents for this collection, the BLM is assuming that it will 
collect on average $66,120 in cost-recovery fees each year associated 
with this collection.
    Comments: We again specifically request your comments on the 
following:
    (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will 
have practical utility;
