established regulations governing the submission of petitions for

    OMB had not approved the information collection requirements

that it would collect no information associated with rule until the 
information collection request received OMB approval (74 FR 16104, 
16106-16107). OMB approved the information collection on July 16, 2009; 
the OMB number is 0583-0136.
    Therefore, FSIS will now begin to collect information associated 
with the final rule. In addition, now that FSIS is authorized to 
collect such information, effective January 25, 2010 the Agency will 
begin to post all petitions for rulemaking that it receives, along with
