Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 223 / Friday, November 19, 2010 / Notices Service (APHIS) is authorized, among other things, to prevent the introduction and interstate spread of serious diseases and pests of livestock and for eradicating such diseases from the United States when feasible. In support of this mission, Veterinary Services (VS), APHIS, prohibits or restricts the interstate movement of livestock that have, or have been exposed to, certain diseases. Johne’s disease, also known as paratuberculosis, is caused by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis and primarily affects cattle, sheep, goats, and other domestic, exotic, and wild ruminants. The disease is a chronic and contagious enteritis that results in progressive wasting and eventual death. It is nearly always introduced into a healthy herd by an infected animal that is not showing symptoms of the disease. The regulations in 9 CFR, chapter I, subchapter C, govern the interstate movement of animals to prevent the dissemination of livestock and poultry diseases in the United States. Subchapter C, part 71, contains general provisions for the interstate movement of animals, poultry, and their products, while part 80 pertains specifically to the interstate movement of domestic animals that are positive to an official test for Johne’s disease. These regulations provide that cattle, sheep, goats, and other domestic animals that are positive to an official test for Johne’s disease may generally be moved interstate only to a recognized slaughtering establishment or to an approved livestock facility for sale to such an establishment. Supplementing the regulations are standards outlined in the document, ‘‘Uniform Program Standards for the Voluntary Bovine Johne’s Disease Control Program’’ (VBJDCP). The voluntary, cooperative program is administered by the States and supported by industry and APHIS. As part of the Agency’s efforts to protect the U.S. animal population and prevent the interstate spread of Johne’s disease, VS uses certain information collection activities, including Johne’s Disease Control Program Annual Reports (VS Form 4–29), quarterly reports, Johne’s Vaccination Records (VS Forms 4–27 and 4–27A), VBJDCP test records (VS Forms 4–30 and 4– 30A), Herd Enrollment forms (VS Form 4–28), Risk Assessment and Herd Management for Dairy Cattle forms (VS Form 4–32), Risk Assessment and Herd Management for Beef Cattle forms (VS Form 4–35), owner-shipper statements (VS Form 1–27), and official eartags. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:02 Nov 18, 2010 Jkt 223001 approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. This information collection includes information collection requirements currently approved by OMB control numbers 0579–0148, ‘‘Johne’s Disease in Domestic Animals; Interstate Movement,’’ and 0579–0338, ‘‘Voluntary Bovine Johne’s Disease Control Program.’’ After OMB approves and combines the burden for both collections under a single collection titled ‘‘Johne’s Disease’’ (0579–0338), the Department will retire number 0579– 0148. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.57767189 hours per response. Respondents: State animal health officials; State personnel performing VBJDCP activities; herd owners; producers; livestock shippers; Johne’scertified veterinarians; and accredited veterinarians. Estimated annual number of respondents: 9,125. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 7.244387. Estimated annual number of responses: 66,105. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 38,187 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: South American Cactus Moth; Quarantine and Regulations.
    OMB Number: 0579-0337.
    Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information 
collection.
    Abstract: As authorized by the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701 
et seq.) (PPA), the Secretary of Agriculture, either independently or 
in cooperation with States, may carry out operations or measures to 
detect, eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of 
plant pests that are new to or not widely distributed within the United 
States. This authority has been delegated to the Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture, which administers regulations to implement the PPA.
    In accordance with the regulations in ``Subpart--South American 
Cactus Moth'' (Sec. Sec.  301.55 through 301.55-9), APHIS restricts the 
interstate movement of cactus moth host material, including nursery 
stock and plant parts for consumption, from infested areas of the 
United States to help prevent the artificial spread of South American 
cactus moth into noninfested areas of the United States. The 
regulations contain requirements for the interstate movement of 
regulated articles and involve information collection activities, 
including compliance agreements (PPQ Form 519), limited permits (PPQ 
Form 530), and certificates (PPQ Form 540).
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 
years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, 
electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average 0.32352 hours per response.
    Respondents: State plant health officials.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 6.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 5.6666.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 34.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 11 hours. (Due to 
averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of 
the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per 
response.)
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.
