Download as PDF 75958 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 234 / Tuesday, December 7, 2010 / Notices permanent electronic identification compatible reader; plans for medical treatment; application for approval of a quarantine or holding facility; opportunity for a hearing on facility withdrawal or suspension; requests to change a horse’s itinerary or method of transportation; and recordkeeping. We are adding as a new collection activity a checklist for approval of permanent, privately owned equine quarantine facilities. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for 3 years. This revised information collection combines equine importation activities currently approved by OMB under ‘‘Temporary Importation of Horses; Noncompetitive Entertainment Horses From Countries Affected With Contagious Equine Metritis’’(0579– 0324), ‘‘Importation of Horses, Ruminants, Swine, and Dogs; Inspection and Treatment for Screwworm (0579– 0165), and ‘‘Importation of Animals and Poultry, Animal and Poultry Products, Certain Animal Embryos, Semen, and Zoological Animals’’ (0579–0040). We are changing the title to ‘‘Importation of Equines into the United States’’ to accurately reflect the combined collection activities. 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 0.645347 hours per response. Respondents: Importers of horses into the United States; operators of private quarantine facilities; States approved to conduct contagious equine metritis testing; State animal health authorities; foreign government officials; transporters; hobby farm operators; nonprofit organizations; accredited veterinarians; private laboratories; and research institutions. Estimated annual number of respondents: 35,500. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1.64231. Estimated annual number of responses: 58,302. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 37,625 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. Done in Washington, DC, this 1st day of December 2010. Kevin Shea, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 0578–0013. Expiration Date of Approval: May 31, 2012. Type of Request: To revise a currently approved information collection to update and clarify information that is no longer included in the information collection. Abstract: The primary objective of NRCS is to work in partnership with the American people and the farming and ranching community to conserve and sustain our natural resources on privately owned land. The purpose of the Long-Term Contracting information 75959 collection is to allow for programs to provide Federal technical and financial cost-sharing assistance through longterm contracts to eligible producers, landowners, and entities. These contracts provide for making land use changes and installing conservation measures and practices to conserve, develop, and use the soil, water, and related natural resources on private lands. Under the terms of the agreement, the participant agrees to apply, or arrange to apply, the conservation treatment specified in the conservation plan. In return for this agreement, Federal financial assistance payments are made to the land user, or third party, upon successful application of the conservation treatment. Additionally, NRCS purchases easements for the longterm protection of the property and provides for the protection and management of the property for the life of the easement. The information collected through this package is used by NRCS to ensure the proper use of program funds. Section 2904 of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Act) (Pub. L. 110–246) exempts Conservation Programs under Title II of the 2008 Act from Chapter 35 of Title 44, U.S.C. (Paperwork Reduction Act). The programs in this information collection that continue to be subject to the requirements to the Paperwork Reduction Act are listed in Table A. This request will clarify the programs in this information collection that are no longer subject to these requirements, and will identify the reduction in burden by removing these forms from the current information collection package. The exempted programs are listed in Table B. TABLE A—CONSERVATION PROGRAMS SUBJECT TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT Program Description Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) (7 CFR part 701). USDA Farm Service Agency’s ECP provides emergency funding and technical assistance for farmers and ranchers to rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters and for carrying out emergency water conservation measures in periods of severe drought. Funding for ECP is appropriated by Congress. The EWP was initiated in 1950 and is administered by NRCS. It provides technical and financial assistance to local institutions for the removal of storm and flood debris from stream channels and for the restoration of stream channels and levees to reduce the threat to life and property. The program also provides for establishing permanent easements in floodplains with private landowners. The RC&D was initiated in 1962 and is administered by NRCS. Through this program, NRCS assists multi-county areas in enhancing conservation, water quality, wildlife habitat, recreation, and rural development. The program provides technical and limited financial assistance for the planning and installation of approved projects. The WPFPP, otherwise known as Pub. L. 566, was initiated in 1954 and is administered by NRCS. It assists State and local units of government in flood prevention, watershed protection, and water management. Part of this effort involves the establishment of conservation practices on private lands to reduce erosion, sedimentation, and runoff. emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Emergency Watershed Program (EWP) (7 CFR part 624).
