Rural Utilities Service Title: Request for Release of Lien and/ or Approval of Sale OMB Control Number: 0572–0041 Summary of Collection: The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) is a credit agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that makes mortgage loans and loan guarantees to finance electric, telecommunications, and water and waste facilities in rural areas. RUS manages loan programs in accordance with the Rural Electrification Act (RE Act) of 1936, 7 U.S.C. 901 et seq., as amended (RE Act). A 1949 amendment to the RE Act established the telephone program in RUS with the purpose of making loans to furnish and improve rural telephone service. Section 201 of the RE Act provides that loans shall not be made unless RUS finds and certifies that the security for the loan is reasonably adequate and that the loan will be repaid within the time agreed. In addition to providing loans and loan guarantees, one of RUS main objectives is to safeguard loan security until the loan is repaid. Need and Use of the Information: A borrower’s assets provide the security for a Government loan. The selling of assets reduces the security and increases the risk of loss to the Government. A borrower seeking permission to sell some of its assets uses RUS Form 793. The form contains detailed information regarding the proposed sale. If the information in Form 793 is not collected when capital assets are sold, the capital assets securing the Government’s loans could be liquidated and the Government’s security either eliminated entirely or diluted to an undesirable level. This increases the risk of loss to the Government in the case of a default.

The regulation prescribes the types of loans available, facilities financed and eligible applicants, as well as minimum credit support requirements considered for a loan. In addition, Title VI of the RE Act requires that Rural Utilities Service (RUS) make or guarantee a loan only if there is reasonable assurance that the loan, together with all outstanding loans and obligations of the borrower, will be repaid in full within the time agreed. Need and Use of the Information: RUS will collect information to determine whether an applicant’s eligibility to borrow from RUS under the terms of the RE Act and that the applicant complies with statutory, regulatory and administrative eligibility requirements for loan assistance. RUS will use the information to determine that the Government’s security for loans made are reasonable, adequate and that the loans will be repaid within the time agreed. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; not-for-profit institutions Number of Respondents: 40 Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion Total Burden Hours: 13,480 Charlene Parker, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.

During the 60-day comment period a number of comments were received relative to the impact analysis for air resources. In their comments, the Environmental Protection Agency requested that a more rigorous air-quality modeling study be completed for inclusion in the Final EIS. They recommended that this study use different air emission factors for the subject facilities-based emission limitations, which would become effective in the future. This revised modeling was conducted in collaboration with the EPA and the Utah Division of Air Quality and the report on this modeling was revised and is hereby being made available for public review. In January 2009, the U.S. Forest Service issued guidance on including climate change in the environmental analyses for future planning decisions. In accordance with this direction and in response to public comment, the Forest has prepared a new appendix to the EIS that considers the effects of the proposed oil and gas leasing on climate change and the effects of climate change E:\FR\FM\19FEN1.SGM 19FEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 2008 Farm Bill (Pub. L. 110-246) 
authorizes certain changes to CRP. A Programmatic Environmental Impact 
Statement (PEIS) was completed in 2003 to evaluate the environmental 
consequences of implementing the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act 
of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill) provisions for CRP and a Record of Decision 
was published May 8, 2003 (68 FR 24848-24854). This SEIS tiers from the 
2003 PEIS and, with certain exceptions, only evaluates those provisions 
changed in the 2008 Farm Bill governing CRP not previously addressed. 
The changes assessed in the SEIS include:
     In general, the CRP purposes now explicitly include 
addressing issues raised by state, regional and national conservation 
initiatives (see 16 U.S.C. 3831(a)).
     The cropping history requirements are updated to four of 
six years in the period from 2002 to 2007 (see 16 U.S.C. 3831b(g)(2)).
     The enrollment authority is set at 39.2 million acres 
through fiscal year (FY) 2009 and reduced to 32.0 million acres for 
fiscal years 2010, 2011, and 2012 (see 16 U.S.C. 3831(d)).
     Alfalfa and multiyear grasses and legumes in a rotation 
practice with an agricultural commodity may contribute towards meeting 
crop history requirements (see 16 U.S.C. 3831(g)).
     The authority is granted to exclude acreage enrolled under 
Continuous Signup and the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program from 
the 25 percent cropland limitation, provided county government concurs 
(see 16 U.S.C. 3844 (f)(3)).
     Management activities by the participant throughout the 
contract term to implement the conservation plan (see 16 U.S.C. 
3832(a)(5)).
 CCC may provide exceptions to general prohibitions (see 16 
U.S.C. 3832 (a)(8)) on use of the property including:
    [cir] Managed harvesting with appropriate vegetation management 
during named periods and with a payment reduction,
    [cir] Managed harvesting for biomass with appropriate vegetation 
management during named periods and with a payment reduction,
    [cir] Grazing of invasive species with appropriate vegetation 
management during named periods and with a payment reduction, and
    [cir] Installation of wind turbines with appropriate vegetation 
management during named periods and with a payment reduction.
 Utilization of dryland and cash rental rates developed by the 
National Agricultural Statistics Service (see 16 U.S.C. 3834(c)(5)) for 
establishment of annual CRP rental rates.
 New incentives for socially disadvantaged farmers and 
ranchers, as well as limited resource farmers and ranchers and Indian 
tribes, to participate in conservation programs (see 16 U.S.C. 3844 
(a)).
 Development of habitat for native and managed pollinators and 
use of CRP conservation practices that will enhance habitat for 
pollinators (see 16 U.S.C. 3844(h)).

    Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the EIS process 
provides a means for the public to provide input on program 
implementation alternatives and on environmental concerns. CCC provided 
notice of its intent (NOI) to prepare the CRP SEIS in the Federal 
Register on September 3, 2009 (74 FR 45606-45607), and solicited public 
comment on the proposed SEIS for CRP. Nine public scoping meetings were 
held in September and October 2009 to solicit comments on the proposed 
alternatives and to identify environmental concerns.
    FSA considered comments gathered from the scoping process, 
initiated with the September 3, 2009 NOI, to develop the alternatives 
analyzed for the administration and implementation of CRP. The Draft 
SEIS assesses the following alternatives with the recommended changes 
to CRP:
     No Action Alternative--continuation of CRP as currently 
implemented.
     Action Alternative 1--full implementation of the 
applicable 2008 Farm Bill Provisions in accordance with current 
procedures.
     Action Alternative 2--implementation of CRP in accordance 
with applicable 2008 Farm Bill provisions exercising discretion that 
differs from current procedures.
    The Draft SEIS also provides a means for the public to voice any 
suggestions they may have about the program and any ideas for 
rulemaking. The Draft SEIS can be reviewed online at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/webapp?area=home&subject=ecrc&topic=nep-cd or at 
http://public.geo-marine.com.
    The Draft SEIS was completed consistent with the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4321-4347), the Council on 
Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural 
Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and FSA's regulations for 
compliance with NEPA (7 CFR part 799).
