Chief Consolidated Mining Company, Civ. No. 2:04CV00891 BSJ, was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Utah. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Mar 25, 2010 Jkt 220001 In exchange for releasing Chief from its $60 million confession of judgment, certain future income recapture provisions, and an obligation to sell certain on-Site, non-mining land required by the 2005 Consent Decree, the Stipulation Modifying Consent Decree substitutes a requirement for Chief to pay to the Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’) $225,000 a year for each of the five years following the modification (total payment of $1,125,000). The Stipulation also extends until December 31, 2013 certain provisions of the Consent Decree related to Chief’s in-kind clean up contributions and provides a grant from Chief to the City of Eureka, Utah of an easement. The easement will facilitate the City’s role in maintaining the integrity of EPA’s Site remedy. The proposed modifications liquidate for equivalent monetary value certain obligations under the Consent Decree which Chief is no longer able to perform due to changing circumstances and are consistent with Chief’s ability-to-pay limitations which were recognized in the initial settlement.

(2) The title of the form/collection: State Court Processing Statistics, 2009. (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form labels are SCPS—2009, SATCS—2009, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. (4) Affected Public Who Will be Asked or Required to Respond, as well as a Brief Abstract: State Trial Courts and Pretrial Agencies. Abstract: The State Court Processing Statistics (SCPS) project covers felony case processing in a sample of the nation’s 75 most populous counties on a recurring basis. In the SCPS data collection program, felony defendants are tracked for up to 1 year with data collected on a variety of felony case processing characteristics. These include the types of arrest charges filed against felony defendants, conditions of pretrial release, and pretrial misconduct which includes the court appearance record, violations of release conditions, and re-arrests committed while on pretrial release. The adjudication outcomes encompassing the dismissal, diversion, guilty plea, and trial conviction rates for felony defendants are also recorded. For those defendants convicted, sentencing data are collected. The SCPS 2009 project also involves collecting aggregate information on the electronic data storage and transfer capacities of courts located in a sample of the nation’s 900 most populous counties. (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Mar 25, 2010 Jkt 220001 Respond: It is estimated that information will be collected on a total of 15,000 felony defendants from 40 responding counties. The estimated burden hours will be contingent upon the counties electronic storage and transfer capabilities. Data collection will occur in a more timely and expeditious manner among counties with the capacities to electronically transfer all their case processing, pretrial, and criminal history information to the data collection agent. It is estimated that about 10 of the 40 counties have the capacity to transfer entire files of SCPS cases and that it should take these counties about 15 hours per county to produce programs capable of transferring the SCPS data to the data collection agent. For the remaining 30 counties that lack the capacity to engage in electronic transfers, data collection will involve manually coding the SCPS survey forms for an online or paper based submission. Prior SCPS data collection endeavors show an estimated one hour to manually code each SCPS case for online or paper based submission. In addition to collecting case processing information, courts located in 200 jurisdictions will be asked to complete a spreadsheet surveying their overall levels of case and pretrial automation. Pretests of the instrument found that the average time to complete the spreadsheet was about 2 hours per trial court. (6) An Estimate of the Total Public Burden (in hours) Associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated for the SCPS data collection is 11,800 hours. In the 30 counties in which SCPS cases are manually coded for paper or online based submission, an estimated 11,250 data collection forms (375 forms per county) will be coded and it should take an estimated one hour to code each data collection form. Hence, the estimated public burden associated with the manual based collection of SCPS data forms should be about 11,250 hours. In the 10 counties in which SCPS cases can be transferred through computerized case management systems, it should take an estimated 150 hours (15 hours per county) to generate the programs capable of transferring information for these SCPS cases. Lastly, about 400 hours will be required to complete the spreadsheets surveying the overall levels of case and pretrial automation for courts located in 200 counties (200 counties multiplied by 2 hours per spreadsheet). Therefore, the total burden time for the SCPS 2009 project should be about 11,800 hours (11,250 hours for manual based data collection + 150 hours for computerized PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14631 transfer of automated SCPS data + 400 hours for the survey of court automation capacities).

    Overview of this information:
    (1) Type of information collection: Reinstatement, with change, of 
a previously approved collection for which OMB approval has expired, 
State Court Processing Statistics, 2009.
    (2) The title of the form/collection: State Court Processing 
Statistics, 2009.
    (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: The form labels are SCPS--
2009, SATCS--2009, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice 
Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
    (4) Affected Public Who Will be Asked or Required to Respond, as 
well as a Brief Abstract: State Trial Courts and Pretrial Agencies. 
Abstract: The State Court Processing Statistics (SCPS) project covers 
felony case processing in a sample of the nation's 75 most populous 
counties on a recurring basis. In the SCPS data collection program, 
felony defendants are tracked for up to 1 year with data collected on a 
variety of felony case processing characteristics. These include the 
types of arrest charges filed against felony defendants, conditions of 
pretrial release, and pretrial misconduct which includes the court 
appearance record, violations of release conditions, and re-arrests 
committed while on pretrial release. The adjudication outcomes 
encompassing the dismissal, diversion, guilty plea, and trial 
conviction rates for felony defendants are also recorded. For those 
defendants convicted, sentencing data are collected. The SCPS 2009 
project also involves collecting aggregate information on the 
electronic data storage and transfer capacities of courts located in a 
sample of the nation's 900 most populous counties.
    (5) An Estimate of the Total Number of Respondents and the Amount 
of Time Estimated for an Average Respondent to Respond: It is estimated 
that information will be collected on a total of 15,000 felony 
defendants from 40 responding counties. The estimated burden hours will 
be contingent upon the counties electronic storage and transfer 
capabilities. Data collection will occur in a more timely and 
expeditious manner among counties with the capacities to electronically 
transfer all their case processing, pretrial, and criminal history 
information to the data collection agent. It is estimated that about 10 
of the 40 counties have the capacity to transfer entire files of SCPS 
cases and that it should take these counties about 15 hours per county 
to produce programs capable of transferring the SCPS data to the data 
collection agent. For the remaining 30 counties that lack the capacity 
to engage in electronic transfers, data collection will involve 
manually coding the SCPS survey forms for an online or paper based 
submission. Prior SCPS data collection endeavors show an estimated one 
hour to manually code each SCPS case for online or paper based 
submission. In addition to collecting case processing information, 
courts located in 200 jurisdictions will be asked to complete a 
spreadsheet surveying their overall levels of case and pretrial 
automation. Pretests of the instrument found that the average time to 
complete the spreadsheet was about 2 hours per trial court.
    (6) An Estimate of the Total Public Burden (in hours) Associated 
with the collection: The estimated public burden associated for the 
SCPS data collection is 11,800 hours. In the 30 counties in which SCPS 
cases are manually coded for paper or online based submission, an 
estimated 11,250 data collection forms (375 forms per county) will be 
coded and it should take an estimated one hour to code each data 
collection form. Hence, the estimated public burden associated with the 
manual based collection of SCPS data forms should be about 11,250 
hours. In the 10 counties in which SCPS cases can be transferred 
through computerized case management systems, it should take an 
estimated 150 hours (15 hours per county) to generate the programs 
capable of transferring information for these SCPS cases. Lastly, about 
400 hours will be required to complete the spreadsheets surveying the 
overall levels of case and pretrial automation for courts located in 
200 counties (200 counties multiplied by 2 hours per spreadsheet). 
Therefore, the total burden time for the SCPS 2009 project should be 
about 11,800 hours (11,250 hours for manual based data collection + 150 
hours for computerized transfer of automated SCPS data + 400 hours for 
the survey of court automation capacities).
