(Oil volumes directed towards the SPR have been halted as of July 1, 2008. This will continue to be the case for the remainder of the year unless the price of oil drops below $75 bbl. Volumes which were being directed to the SPR have been redirected back to commercial GOM RIK oil sales. Thus, information collection responses will continue at the same level during and after the SPR initiative—the only difference will be under which program they fall.).

Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-hour’’ Cost Burden: We have identified no ‘‘nonhour’’ cost burdens. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) provides that 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. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA requires each agency to ‘‘* * * provide 60-day notice in the Federal Register * * * 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. To comply with the public consultation process, we published a notice in the Federal Register on April 9, 2008 (73 FR 19241), announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. We received no comments in response to the notice. VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:00 Dec 12, 2008 Jkt 217001 If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by January 14, 2009. Public Comment Policy: We will post all comments in response to this notice on our Web site at http:// www.mrm.mms.gov/Laws_R_D/ FRNotices/FRInfColl.htm. We will also make copies of the comments available for public review, including names and addresses of respondents, during regular business hours at our offices in Lakewood, Colorado.

ACTION: Notice of the Availability of Environmental Documents; Prepared for OCS Mineral Proposals by the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region. SUMMARY: Minerals Management Service (MMS), in accordance with Federal Regulations that implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announces the availability of NEPArelated Site-Specific Environmental Assessments (SEA) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI), prepared by MMS for the following oil-, gas-, and mineral-related activities proposed on the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic OCS. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Public Information Unit, Information Services Section at the number below. Minerals Management Service, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (MS 5034), 1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 114, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123–2394, or by calling 1–800–200–GULF. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MMS prepares SEAs and FONSIs for proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1 76052 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 241 / Monday, December 15, 2008 / Notices activities described in the proposals and present MMS conclusions regarding the significance of those effects. Environmental Assessments are used as a basis for determining whether or not approval of the proposals constitutes major Federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human environment in the sense of NEPA Section 102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where MMS finds that approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA. This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of environmental documents required under the NEPA Regulations. This listing includes all proposals for which the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region prepared a FONSI in the period subsequent to publication of the preceding notice.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the draft EIS are available from the Superintendent, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Box 7, Medora, North Dakota 58645–0007. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this EIS is to develop and implement an elk management strategy compatible with the long-term protection and preservation of park resources. This EIS is needed to address the rapid increase of the Park elk population from the 47 reintroduced to the South Unit of the Park in 1985, to the approximately 900 that occur there today. Larger populations of elk could, over the long-term, negatively affect plant communities and other resources as a result of overgrazing. Large elk populations could also negatively affect other herbivores present in the South Unit by competing for forage. Other considerations include land use and users outside the Park, including livestock grazing, hunting, and agriculture; visitors to the Park; and the E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1

SUMMARY: Minerals Management Service (MMS), in accordance with Federal 
Regulations that implement the National Environmental Policy Act 
(NEPA), announces the availability of NEPA-related Site-Specific 
Environmental Assessments (SEA) and Findings of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI), prepared by MMS for the following oil-, gas-, and mineral-
related activities proposed on the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic OCS.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Public Information Unit, Information 
Services Section at the number below. Minerals Management Service, Gulf 
of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (MS 5034), 
1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 114, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MMS prepares SEAs and FONSIs for proposals 
that relate to exploration, development, production, and transport of 
oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These SEAs examine 
the potential environmental effects of

[[Page 76052]]

activities described in the proposals and present MMS conclusions 
regarding the significance of those effects. Environmental Assessments 
are used as a basis for determining whether or not approval of the 
proposals constitutes major Federal actions that significantly affect 
the quality of the human environment in the sense of NEPA Section 
102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where MMS finds that 
approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of the 
human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that 
finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA.
    This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of 
environmental documents required under the NEPA Regulations.
    This listing includes all proposals for which the Gulf of Mexico 
OCS Region prepared a FONSI in the period subsequent to publication of 
the preceding notice.
