Description of Need: The currently approved information collection responds to the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) which requires the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Interior to make the America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass available, for free, to any United States citizen or person domiciled in the United States who has been medically determined to be permanently disabled for purposes of Section 7(20)(B)(i) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 705 (20)(B)(i)). The Act further requires that the applicant provide adequate proof of the disability and such citizenship or residency. The Act specifies that the Pass shall be valid for the lifetime of the pass holder. The America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Access Pass (Interagency Access Pass) was created to meet the requirements of the FLREA. An Interagency Access Pass is a free, lifetime permit that is issued without charge by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, United States Forest Service, and the National Park Service to citizens or persons who are domiciled (permanent residents) in the United States, regardless of age, and who have a medical determination and documentation of permanent disability.

The Pass must be signed by the holder. In order to issue the Interagency Access Pass only to persons who have been medically determined to be permanently disabled, in accordance with the FLREA and in order to clarify, simplify, and to provide uniform guidance for the public on the process for obtaining the Interagency Access Pass, the Secretaries of Agriculture and of the Interior established eligibility and required documentation guidelines for issuing the Interagency Access Pass and published them within the America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Standard Operating Procedures. The current procedures require the individual to appear in person and sign the Pass in the presence of the issuing E:\FR\FM\09JNN1.SGM 09JNN1 erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 9, 2010 / Notices agency officer. Acceptable documentation to verify that the individual had been medically determined to have a permanent disability has been identified and includes: A statement signed by a licensed physician attesting that the applicant has a permanent physical, mental, or sensory impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, and stating the nature of the impairment; or A document issued by a Federal agency, such as the Veteran’s Administration, which attests that the applicant has been medically determined to be eligible to receive Federal benefits as a result of blindness or permanent disability.

Showing a State motor vehicle department disability sticker, license plate or hang tag is not acceptable documentation. Information available to the general public through agency Web sites and publications will inform potential Pass applicants of the documentation requirements. However, there are instances where applicants learn about the Pass when arriving at a recreation site and do not have the required documentation available. For those instances, a fourth option is made available at recreation sites. If a person claims eligibility for the Access Pass but cannot produce any of the documentation outlined, that person must read, sign, and date the Statement of Disability Form in the presence of the officer issuing the Pass. If the applicant cannot read and/or sign, someone else may read, date, and sign the statement on his/her behalf in the applicant’s presence, and in the presence of the officer issuing the Pass. The requested information and Statement of Disability have been collected and used since the creation of the Golden Access Passport in 1980 to verify that the individual had been medically determined to have a permanent disability for the issuance of the Golden Access Passport under OMB control number 0596–0173, under the authority of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act.
