Comments: On October 18, 2010, we published in the Federal Register (75 FR 63850) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on December 17, 2010. We received two comments. The Marine Mammal Commission submitted a letter of support for the data collection as proposed. A second comment opposed this information collection as unworthy of continued support and a burden to general taxpayers. In this comment, subsistence marine mammal hunters were misidentified as fishermen. We note the concerns raised by this individual; however, the harvest of marine mammals by certain Alaska Natives for certain purposes is specifically exempted from otherwise prohibited activities by section 101(b) of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.). A Marking, Tagging and Reporting Program is also specifically mandated by this same Act. We did not make any changes to our information collection. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents.

based on the number of such children served. In order to allow the 
Secretary of the Interior to determine what amounts to allocate to

use the funds to assist in child find, screening, and other procedures 
for early identification of Indian children under 3 years of age and 
for parent training and early intervention services.
    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 provides an opportunity for
