Does the collection inform the public of the information the public needs to exercise scrutiny concerning the agency need to collect information (the reasons the information is collected, the way it is used, an estimate of the burden, whether the response is voluntary, required to obtain a benefit, or mandatory and a statement that no person is required to respond unless a valid OMB control number is displayed)? Yes. If an entity desires a Federal power allocation from Western, Western needs certain information to determine whether the entity is eligible to receive power. Western has a limited amount of power available. Western uses its discretion in allocating power. In order to use its discretion in allocating power, Western will use the information collected on the application. Western will not accept incomplete applications. Western will work with Native American Tribes and other entities that may need assistance in completing the application. No person is required to submit any information unless a valid OMB control number is displayed. No person is required to submit any information unless they desire a Federal power allocation. H. Is the collection developed by an office that has planned and allocated resources for the efficient and effective management and use of the information collected? jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Yes. Western’s power marketing offices will administer and evaluate the applications. Use and management of the collected information has been factored into each office’s functions and resource requirements. Historically, Western has requested the same relative information from applicants and effectively used Western resources to utilize and manage the information in its determinations. Each power marketing office will make a recommendation to Western’s Administrator on which applicant(s) should be awarded a Federal power allocation based on the information contained in the APD. Western’s Administrator shall use his discretion in the final power allocations. The procedure and process for the allocation of power shall be the subject matter of a separate notice and is outside the scope of this process. I. Does the collection use effective and efficient statistical survey methods? Not applicable. Since the information collected is used to determine whether an applicant receives an allocation of VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:06 May 30, 2008 Jkt 214001 Federal power, this section is inapplicable. J. Does the collection use information technology to the maximum extent practicable to reduce the burden and to improve data quality, agency efficiency, and responsiveness to the public? Yes. The APD will be accessible for downloading via Western’s Web site. Western will accept electronic-mail submission of the APD, as well as submission via fax or regular mail. At this time, applicants cannot enter the information on Western’s Web site. VII. Invitation for Comments Western invites public comment on ICR that Western has submitted to OMB pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR No. 0107.09, OMB Control No. 2060–0096. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2008. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 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: Source Compliance and State Action Reporting is an activity whereby State, District, Local, and Commonwealth governments make air compliance and enforcement information available to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) on a cyclic basis via input to the Air Facility System (AFS). The information provided to EPA includes compliance activities and determinations, and enforcement activities. EPA uses this information to assess progress toward meeting emission requirements developed under the authority of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) to protect and maintain the atmospheric environment and the public health. The EPA and many of the state and local agencies access the data in AFS to assist them in the management of their air pollution control programs. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 131 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:06 May 30, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 and Local Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 93. Frequency of Response: 6 times per year. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 73,073. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $3,504,531.00, inclusive of labor costs, and $00.00 for both annualized capital and O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 25,110 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to: Reduction in the major source universe, increase in the use of the Universal Interface software program, significant differences in the level of effort provided by different agencies in the maintenance and oversight of data, and the reduction of startup costs from the previous ICR.
