ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 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: The State Review Framework (‘‘Framework’’) is an oversight tool designed to assess state performance in enforcement and compliance assurance. The Framework’s goal is to evaluate state performance by examining existing data to provide a consistent level of oversight and develop a uniform mechanism by which EPA Regions, working collaboratively with their states, can ensure that state environmental agencies are consistently implementing the national compliance and enforcement program in order to meet agreed-upon goals. Furthermore, the Framework is designed to foster dialogue on enforcement and compliance performance between the states that will enhance relationships and increase feedback, which will in turn lead to consistent program management and improved environmental results. This amendment will allow EPA to collect information from enforcement and compliance files reviewed during routine on-site visits of state or local agency offices that will assist in the evaluation of the State Review Framework implementation from FY 2009 to the end of FY 2011. Also, this request will allow EPA to make inquiries to assess the State Review Framework process, including E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 221 / Friday, November 14, 2008 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES the consistency achieved among the EPA Regions and states, the resources required to conduct the reviews, and the overall effectiveness of the program. 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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 612 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: 50 states and 4 territories. Estimated Number of Respondents: 54. Frequency of Response: Once every four years. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 11,016. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $357,684, includes $0 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 5,894 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is based on EPA’s recent experience with administering the program, an estimated increase in the number of respondents during the next cycle, and its work with the states to try to improve the value and utilization of the elements and metrics by which state environmental programs are measured.

    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 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

in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when

    Abstract: The State Review Framework (``Framework'') is an 
oversight tool designed to assess state performance in enforcement and 
compliance assurance. The Framework's goal is to evaluate state 
performance by examining existing data to provide a consistent level of 
oversight and develop a uniform mechanism by which EPA Regions, working 
collaboratively with their states, can ensure that state environmental 
agencies are consistently implementing the national compliance and 
enforcement program in order to meet agreed-upon goals. Furthermore, 
the Framework is designed to foster dialogue on enforcement and 
compliance performance between the states that will enhance 
relationships and increase feedback, which will in turn lead to 
consistent program management and improved environmental results. This 
amendment will allow EPA to collect information from enforcement and 
compliance files reviewed during routine on-site visits of state or 
local agency offices that will assist in the evaluation of the State 
Review Framework implementation from FY 2009 to the end of FY 2011. 
Also, this request will allow EPA to make inquiries to assess the State 
Review Framework process, including

the consistency achieved among the EPA Regions and states, the 
resources required to conduct the reviews, and the overall 
effectiveness of the program.
    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 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 612 
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: 50 states and 4 territories.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 54.
    Frequency of Response: Once every four years.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 11,016.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $357,684, includes $0 annualized 
capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 5,894 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is based on EPA's recent experience 
with administering the program, an estimated increase in the number of 
respondents during the next cycle, and its work with the states to try 
to improve the value and utilization of the elements and metrics by 
which state environmental programs are measured.
