Request for Comments On November 19, 2009, we published a Federal Register notice (74 FR 59989) soliciting comments announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. We solicited comments for a period of 60 days, ending on January 19, 2010. We received one comment concerning that FEDERAL REGISTER notice and we responded to the following comment in a timely manner. Comment: Fort Collins—where deer diseases started. Your site is hardly a favorable site for sound science since Fort Collins is where they diseased deer. Many state agencies and colleges are poor choices for this kind of site since they have hired people with preordained minds and closed minds. They practice junk science. I would nominate the NJ Div Fish & Game Division of NJDEP and Rutgers Agribusiness division, both of which seem to have hired biased individuals who don’t even practice scientific principles or methods. In my opinion, these divisions seem to hire people with their minds made up who blacklist those who have conflicting views. It is not an open place or site where methods and processes can be discussed. You need to be careful in aligning yourself with the state agencies that ‘‘manage’’ wildlife. They all seem to be stocked by card carrying members of the gun clubs who believe in guns and killing. That kind of closed mind is certainly not environmental in the least. You need to be very careful that you are getting the best science for this kind of project. If you can’t get the best science, you might as well not spend the taxpayer dollars because the taxpayers are already paying for a lot of inaccurate, unfactual junk science. Response: Hello, and thank you for your comment on Federal Register document, FR Doc. E9–27780. This response acknowledges our receipt of your comment. We would like to assure you that the USGS mission and goal is to provide the best unbiased science that we can. This is the reason we are E:\FR\FM\27JAN1.SGM 27JAN1
