Download as PDF 38148 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 125 / Wednesday, June 29, 2011 / Notices PROCEDURES REQUIREMENTS Environmental Evaluation Western’s proposal to better define evaluation criteria and procedures for resource acquisition is an administrative action covered by an existing NEPA categorical exclusion. A categorical exclusion has been prepared and executed for this process. Once projectspecific actions are identified under the Final Principles of IRP and the final evaluation criteria developed through the process defined, those actions would be individually subject to the appropriate level of NEPA review. Factors affecting the level of NEPA review include whether the projectspecific action would integrate a new generation resource, precipitate changes to the transmission system, or change the normal operating limits of existing generation resources. Determination under Executive Order 12866 Western has an exemption from centralized regulatory review under Executive Order 12866; accordingly, no clearance of this notice by the Office of Management and Budget is required.

ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1630.10, OMB Control No. 2050–0135. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2011. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in Title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR Part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR Part 9. Abstract: Under section 311(j)(5) of the Clean Water Act, as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 and in regulation codified at 40 CFR 112.20 and 112.21, EPA requires that owners or operators of facilities storing oil create and maintain updated Facility Response Plans (FRP) in order to identify the necessary resources to respond to an oil spill in a timely manner. If implemented effectively, the FRP will reduce the impact and severity of oil spills and may prevent spills through the identification of risks at the facility. Although the owner or operator is the primary data user, EPA also uses the data in certain situations to ensure that facilities comply with the regulation and to help allocate response resources. State and local governments may use the data, which are not generally available elsewhere and can greatly assist local emergency preparedness planning efforts. EPA reviews all submitted FRPs and must approve FRPs for those facilities whose discharges may cause significant and substantial harm to the environment in order to ensure that facilities believed to pose the highest risk have planned for adequate resources and procedures to respond to a spill. Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to average 1 hour per response for the Partner Registration Form, 34.5 hours per response for the Partner Annual E:\FR\FM\29JNN1.SGM 29JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 125 / Wednesday, June 29, 2011 / Notices Assessment Form, 3 hours per response for the Endorser Registration Form, and 5 hours per response for the Endorser Annual Assessment Form. This results in an estimated annual partner respondent burden of 51 hours for new partners, 48 hours for established partners, 7 hours for new endorsers, and 3 hours for established endorsers. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Businesses, not-for-profit institutions, and State, Local, or Tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 22,865. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 463,419. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $19,415,628, includes $31,736 annualized capital costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 30,792 hours from the currently approved burden. This is due to an observed increase in the number of facilities which must create and maintain an FRP. Dated: June 23, 2011. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Under OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320.12(b)(2), the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. This ICR is for an ongoing information collection activity. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Final Rule and in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR Part 9 or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. Abstract: Under section 11 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), EPA administers certification programs for pesticide applicators. FIFRA allows EPA to classify a pesticide as ‘‘restricted use’’ if the pesticide meets certain toxicity or risk criteria. This ICR addresses the paperwork activities performed by various EPA-authorized agencies of States and Indian tribal governments, as well as federal agencies (collectively referred to in this document as ‘‘authorized agencies’’), and activities performed by individuals and firms in the course of training and certifying persons who apply restricted use pesticides. Because of their potential to harm human health or the environment, restricted use pesticides may be purchased and applied only by a E:\FR\FM\29JNN1.SGM 29JNN1
