Although there are recommended methods, the ultimate responsibility for properly securing cargo inside a container (by blocking, bracing, and strapping) resides with the packer of the container. U.S. regulations make reference to dunnage as a method for securing cargo and defines it in 49 CFR 176.2 as ‘‘lumber of not less than 25 mm (0.98 inch) commercial thickness or equivalent material laid over or against structures such as tank tops, decks, bulkheads, frames, plating, or ladders, or used for filling voids or fitting around cargo, to prevent damage during transportation.’’ However, there is no reference made to flexible strapping systems. The Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued exemptions to 49 CFR 176.76(a)(4), allowing the use of fabric restraint dunnage systems to secure certain hazardous materials, when installed as specified by the manufacturer’s instructions. There are a variety of options for developing a standard. One option is to request that the UN ECE, ILO, and IMO consider incorporating flexible strapping systems into their Guidelines. Another option is to have the International Standards Organization (ISO) develop testing and performance requirements. The U.S. could also create domestic regulations for incorporation into 49 CFR part 176. The final option is to continue operations as they currently exist, allowing the packer to determine the best method of securing cargo without a standardized approval or certification process. The Coast Guard invites comments on the following topics: • The need for a new approval process or certification standard for cargo securing systems. • Information on currently used standards for the approval and use of cargo securing systems. • Methods for ensuring or verifying that securing systems adequately secure cargo without damaging the container or cargo. • Existing test methods for securing systems. • Materials used for securing cargo within the container (e.g. wood, plastic, bags, web, wire, chain, etc.). • Allowances for movement of cargo within the container when securing systems are used. • Information on cargo securing systems that are currently being used to secure cargo in containers, both domestically and internationally. Written comments and responses to the above topics will be added to the docket number for this notice (USCG– VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:14 Jan 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 2009–1079). The Coast Guard intends to review and analyze all comments received in order to develop a way forward for securing cargo in containers. This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552.

The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year strategy for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total hours opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Administration Act. CCP Alternatives, Including Our Proposed Alternative We developed four alternatives for managing the refuge and chose Alternative D as the proposed alternative. Each alternative would pursue the same four broad refuge goals—wildlife, habitat, public use, and refuge administration. A full description is in the Draft CCP/EA. We summarize each alternative below. Alternative A—Current Management (No Action) Alternative A would continue current management strategies, with little or no change in budgeting or funding. Under this alternative, we would protect, maintain, restore, and enhance 6,616 acres of refuge lands and 441 additional acres included in a migratory bird closure area around the refuge, primarily focusing on the needs of migratory waterfowl. We would place additional emphasis on the needs of resident wildlife, migratory non-game birds, and threatened and endangered species. We would continue cooperative farming on 1,200 acres. We would continue mandated activities for protection of federally listed species. Control of nuisance wildlife populations would be undertaken as necessary. Habitat management efforts would concentrate on moist-soil management, waterfowl impoundments, and crop production. We would continue to monitor invasive plants. We would maintain the current levels of wildlife-dependent recreation activities (e.g., hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, and environmental education and interpretation). We would maintain two designated hiking trails, a 10-mile, selfguided auto tour route (for wildlife observation and photography), and three boat launch ramps with gravel parking areas, to the extent that these facilities would not substantially interfere with or E:\FR\FM\08JAN1.SGM 08JAN1

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ``Non-Hour Cost'' Burden: The 
only non-hour costs are $5,600 in fees for notarizing Forms 3809-2 and 
3809-4a ($20 per form x 280 forms annually = $5,600).
    The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that 
an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless 
it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a 
collection of information, you are not obligated to respond.
    The BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include 
them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become 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 us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.

Jean Sonneman,
Acting Information Collection Clearance Officer, Bureau of Land 
Management.
