Under the current approval for this information collection, we use three forms to collect information from qualified rural residents for subsistence harvest: VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:24 Oct 22, 2009 Jkt 220001 (1) FWS Form 3–2326 (Federal Subsistence Hunt Application, Permit, and Report).

PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (2) FWS Form 3–2379 (Federal Subsistence Customary Trade Recordkeeping Form). We use the information collected to evaluate: • Subsistence harvest success. • Effectiveness of season lengths, harvest quotas, and harvest restrictions. • Hunting patterns and practices. • Hunter use. The Federal Subsistence Board uses the harvest data, along with other information, to set future season dates and bag limits for Federal subsistence resource users. These seasons and bag limits are set to meet needs of E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1 CPrice-Sewell on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES 54842 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 204 / Friday, October 23, 2009 / Notices subsistence hunters without adversely impacting the health of existing animal populations. Also included in this ICR, are three forms associated with recruitment and selection of members for regional advisory councils. These forms are currently approved under OMB Control No. 1018–0120 (which will be discontinued upon approval of this ICR): (1) FWS Form 2321 (Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Membership Application/Nomination). (2) FWS Form 2322 (Regional Advisory Council Candidate Interview). (3) FWS Form 2323 (Regional Advisory Council Reference/Key Contact Interview). The member selection process begins with the information that we collect on the application. Ten interagency review panels interview all applicants and nominees, their references, and regional key contacts. These contacts are all based on the information that the applicant provides on the application form. The information that we collect through the application form and subsequent interviews is the basis of the Federal Subsistence Board’s recommendations to the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture for appointment and reappointment of council members. During the renewal process for this ICR, we reviewed our regulations and discovered some information collection requirements not specifically addressed in our previous request for approval. Our regulations at 50 CFR 100 contain procedures for these requirements, including necessary documentation. We collect nonform information on: (1) Repeal of Federal subsistence rules and regulations (50 CFR 100.14 and 36 CFR 242.14). (2) Proposed changes to Federal subsistence regulations (50 CFR 100.18 and 36 CFR 242.18). (3) Special action requests (50 CFR 100.19 and 36 CFR 242.19). (4) Requests for reconsideration (50 CFR 100.20 and 36 CFR 242.20). (5) Requests for permits and reports, such as traditional religious/cultural/ educational permits; fishwheel permits; fyke net permits; and under ice permits (50 CFR 100.25–27 and 36 CFR 242.25– 27). Comments: On May 28, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 25575) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on July 27, 2009. We did not receive any comments in response to that notice. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:24 Oct 22, 2009 Jkt 220001 We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record.

    Abstract: The Alaska Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) and 
regulations at 50 CFR 100 and 36 CFR 242 require that persons engaged 
in taking fish, shellfish, and wildlife on public lands in Alaska for 
subsistence uses apply for and obtain a permit to do so and comply with 
reporting provisions of that permit. Under the current approval for 
this information collection, we use three forms to collect information 
from qualified rural residents for subsistence harvest:
    (1) FWS Form 3-2326 (Federal Subsistence Hunt Application, Permit, 
and Report).
    (2) FWS Form 3-2327 (Designated Hunter Permit Application, Permit, 
and Report.
    (3) FWS Form 3-2328 (Federal Subsistence Fishing Application, 
Permit, and Report.
    We are proposing to add two new forms:
    (1) FWS Form 3-2378 (Designated Fishing Permit Application, Permit, 
and Report).
    (2) FWS Form 3-2379 (Federal Subsistence Customary Trade 
Recordkeeping Form).
    We use the information collected to evaluate:
     Subsistence harvest success.
     Effectiveness of season lengths, harvest quotas, and 
harvest restrictions.
     Hunting patterns and practices.
     Hunter use.
    The Federal Subsistence Board uses the harvest data, along with 
other information, to set future season dates and bag limits for 
Federal subsistence resource users. These seasons and bag limits are 
set to meet needs of

[[Page 54842]]

subsistence hunters without adversely impacting the health of existing 
animal populations.
    Also included in this ICR, are three forms associated with 
recruitment and selection of members for regional advisory councils. 
These forms are currently approved under OMB Control No. 1018-0120 
(which will be discontinued upon approval of this ICR):
    (1) FWS Form 2321 (Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council 
Membership Application/Nomination).
    (2) FWS Form 2322 (Regional Advisory Council Candidate Interview).
    (3) FWS Form 2323 (Regional Advisory Council Reference/Key Contact 
Interview).
The member selection process begins with the information that we 
collect on the application. Ten interagency review panels interview all 
applicants and nominees, their references, and regional key contacts. 
These contacts are all based on the information that the applicant 
provides on the application form. The information that we collect 
through the application form and subsequent interviews is the basis of 
the Federal Subsistence Board's recommendations to the Secretaries of 
the Interior and Agriculture for appointment and reappointment of 
council members.
    During the renewal process for this ICR, we reviewed our 
regulations and discovered some information collection requirements not 
specifically addressed in our previous request for approval. Our 
regulations at 50 CFR 100 contain procedures for these requirements, 
including necessary documentation. We collect nonform information on:
    (1) Repeal of Federal subsistence rules and regulations (50 CFR 
100.14 and 36 CFR 242.14).
    (2) Proposed changes to Federal subsistence regulations (50 CFR 
100.18 and 36 CFR 242.18).
    (3) Special action requests (50 CFR 100.19 and 36 CFR 242.19).
    (4) Requests for reconsideration (50 CFR 100.20 and 36 CFR 242.20).
    (5) Requests for permits and reports, such as traditional 
religious/cultural/educational permits; fishwheel permits; fyke net 
permits; and under ice permits (50 CFR 100.25-27 and 36 CFR 242.25-27).
    Comments: On May 28, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 
FR 25575) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew this 
information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 
days, ending on July 27, 2009. We did not receive any comments in 
response to that notice.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    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. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
