SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department is submitting the proposed information collection to OMB for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended). This Notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Federal Labor Standards Payee Verification and Payment Processing. OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2501–0021. Description of the need for this information and proposed use: HUD, and State, local, and Tribal agencies administering HUD-assisted programs must enforce Federal labor standards requirements, including the payment of prevailing wage rates to laborers and mechanics employed on HUD-assisted construction and maintenance work that is covered by these requirements. Enforcement activities include securing funds to ensure the payment of wage restitution that has been or may be found due to laborers and mechanics who were employed on HUD-assisted projects, and the payment of liquidated damages that may be assessed for violations of Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA) overtime violations. Ultimately, these VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:06 Dec 15, 2009 Jkt 220001 funds are deposited to an account in the U.S. Treasury. If the labor standards discrepancies are resolved, HUD refunds associated amounts to the depositor. As underpaid laborers and mechanics are located, HUD sends wage restitution payments to the affected workers. Liquidated damages assessed for CWHSSA overtime violations are retained by HUD. In order to make refunds and wage restitution payments, HUD must verify the identity of the payee to ensure that the refund is made to the correct depositor or wage restitution to the correct worker before payment is made. In order to complete these verifications, HUD will request information such as the depositor’s or payee’s tax identification number (i.e., employer identification number or Social Security Number); the project name or number; and/or the worker’s employer’s name. All refunds from labor standards deposit accounts are made, electronically. Depositors entitled to a refund must provide to HUD the name, address, and the account information for the banking institution to which the depositor wants the refund sent. Wage restitution payments may be made by check or electronically, at the payee’s choice. HUD must collect either the payee’s mailing address, so that a check may be sent to them, or banking information for an electronic payment. Agency form numbers: HUD–4734, Labor Standards Deposit Voucher. This form is completed by HUD staff after depositor or payee verification and the collection of payment processing information, i.e., banking details or mailing address. Members of affected public: Developers and prime contractors engaged on HUD-assisted construction or maintenance work subject to Federal labor standards requirements; construction and maintenance laborers and mechanics employed on HUDassisted projects subject to Federal labor standards requirements that are entitled to wage restitution. Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of responses, and hours of response: The estimated number of respondents is 50 per year. The estimated number of hours needed per respondent is .1 hours. The total public burden is estimated to be 5 hours per year. Payees do not need to complete a form; the information may be collected by HUD in person, by telephone, or in writing, at the payee’s option. Status: Extension of a currently approved collection.

ACTION: Notice of availability of a Record of Decision on the Final General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Fort Stanwix National Monument. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to § 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of the Record of Decision for the Final General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (GMP/ EIS) for Fort Stanwix National Monument, New York. The Regional Director, Northeast Region, has approved the Record of Decision for the GMP/EIS, selecting Alternative 2— Preferred Action, which was described as the preferred alternative in the Final GMP/EIS which was issued for the required 30-day no action period beginning on July 31, 2009 and ending August 31, 2009. The Record of Decision includes a description of the background of the project, a statement of the decision made, synopses of other alternatives considered, the basis for the decision, findings on impairment of park resources and values, a description of the environmentally preferred alternative, a listing of measures to minimize environmental harm, and an overview of public and agency involvement in the decision-making process. As soon as practicable, the NPS will begin to implement the selected alternative. Copies of the Record of Decision may be downloaded from the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site (http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/fost) or a hardcopy may be obtained from the contact listed below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Debbie Conway, Superintendent, Fort Stanwix National Monument, 112 East Park Street, Rome, New York 13440; 315–338–7730. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:18 Dec 15, 2009 Jkt 220001 Fort Stanwix National Monument has needed a General Management Plan (GMP) since it has been reliant on a 1967 Master Plan and a 1974 Development Concept Plan. The Fort Stanwix National Monument GMP describes and explains the resource conditions that should exist and the visitor experiences that should be available at Fort Stanwix National Monument. The GMP provides a consistent framework for coordinating and integrating all subsequent planning and management decisions concerning the park. The selected alternative, Alternative 2, the Preferred Action, would broaden interpretation to emphasize the role of Fort Stanwix in the greater Northern Frontier and Mohawk Valley regional context; expand its interpretation of the Six Nations Confederacy; and, within available funding and authority, foster programmatic coordination as well as technical assistance to thematically related sites within the Northern Frontier and Mohawk Valley. Fort Stanwix National Monument would also use existing authorities to increase its capacity to pursue community outreach and regional partnership initiatives, particularly in seeking hike and bike trail linkages or shuttle vehicle connections with related sites. Efforts would be made to modify a limited part of the lawn area near the reconstructed fort to establish landscape conditions, using native grasses and other vegetation more evocative (not a reconstruction) of the historic meadow landscape while still maintaining sufficient lawn area to support community events. Certain fort structures that have not been reconstructed due to fiscal constraints and that are important to interpreting the history at Fort Stanwix, such as the Ravelin, may be reconstructed if it is feasible, fully funded by outside sources, and meets with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment for Historic Structures and applicable Section 106 compliance requirements. Vacated fort spaces would be adapted for public use, relying on enhanced interpretation to educate visitors and provide for the essential comprehension of the fort’s original appearance. In addition to the selected alternative, a No Action alternative was presented and analyzed in the Draft and Final Environmental Impact Statements. The No Action alternative describes current management practices and conditions at Fort Stanwix National Monument with no major new actions. Current management directions, practices, and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conditions would continue largely unchanged. This alternative has an interpretive focus on the siege of Fort Stanwix during the Revolutionary War. The issues explored through the GMP/EIS planning process include protection of cultural resources, visitor services, partnership opportunities, carrying capacity, and the lack of a properly defined boundary. The planning team established a set of criteria and goals against which each alternative was compared to determine which alternative best fulfilled the purpose and objectives of the GMP. Resource Preservation Goals • NPS addresses planning issues associated with cultural resource management of the fort structure, grounds, collections, and archeological resources. NPS should establish cultural landscape conditions to make it more evocative of historic era while maintaining sufficient lawn area to support community events. Visitor Experience Goals • Visitors understand the history of Fort Stanwix during the 18th century, particularly the events that occurred there during the American Revolutionary War in 1777. Visitors also understand the significance of treaties negotiated at Fort Stanwix between 1768 and 1790 with Indian Tribes. • The visitor experience fully reflects the park’s purpose, significance and themes. This includes enhancing the visitor experiencing and interpreting the regional historical context of Fort Stanwix to include Oriskany Battlefield, Northern Frontier, and Mohawk Valley. • Interpretation in broadened to emphasize the role of Fort Stanwix in the greater Northern Frontier and Mohawk Valley regional context and expanding interpretation of the Six, Nations Confederacy. • Interpretive media, exhibits, wayside exhibits, and other programs are updated to enhance visitor understanding of interpretive stories. Transportation Goals • Fort Stanwix National Monument works with local authorities to improve traffic conditions and improve pedestrian, bicycle, and shuttle vehicle linkages with related sites, including the Oriskany Battlefield. Park Administration Goals • Administrative, interpretive, maintenance, and other staff, as well as facilities and other infrastructure, sustain the programs and operations of the Fort Stanwix National Monument and accomplish the NPS mission.
