Vilsack evaluates the current condition of Native American Sacred Sites protection, pursuant to Executive Order 13007 and other policies and procedures, on National Forest System (NFS) lands throughout the United States. The Secretary requested information about the unintended consequences of land management decisions affecting Native American Sacred Sites and communities whose cultural survival is connected to these sites. In response to Secretary Vilsack’s request, USDA’s Office of Tribal Relations and the Forest Service formed a team to talk to Tribes and other Native American communities about how the Agency can do a better job incorporating Sacred Sites issues into the Agency’s mission to deliver forest goods and services for current and future generations on NFS lands. Over 50 meetings (listening sessions) were held across the Nation. The meetings were held in Indian Country, Alaska Native villages, telephonically and face-to-face, at inter-tribal venues, and at numerous other locations as requested by the Tribes. These listening sessions engaged not only tribal leadership but also culture keepers, traditional practitioners, and unaffiliated native descendants. The team conducting this review also surveyed Forest Service line officers and program managers to learn their thoughts and observations about the effectiveness of the Agency’s efforts to manage land that includes Sacred Sites. The review included a synthesis of current laws, rules, regulations, and policies that affect the Agency’s ability to protect Sacred Sites. The draft report, and other associated information, is available at: http:// www.fs.fed.us/spf/tribalrelations/ sacredsites. The draft report will be made available to federally recognized Tribes and to Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) Corporations (as required by 25 U.S.C. 450(b)) for consultation consistent with Executive Order 13175. Federally recognized Tribes and ANCSA Corporations will be directly contacted by USDA or the Forest Service. We will incorporate what we hear during government-to-government consultation with Tribes and government-tocorporation consultation with ANCSA Corporations into the final report, which is anticipated to be submitted to the Secretary early in 2012. In addition, public comments will be summarized as part of the final report. Public comments should be submitted as listed under ADDRESSES. All comments received in response to this notice, including names PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. As a result of this review, if the Secretary directs policy change or other agency action, the need for additional consultation or public comment and publication in the Federal Register will be determined by the scope and extent of the proposed changes. Authority: Executive Orders 13007 and 13175. Dated: August 1, 2011. Joel D. Holtrop, Deputy Chief, National Forest System.

Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: 2012 Economic Census— Commodity Flow Survey. OMB Control Number: 0607–0932. Form Number(s): CFS 1000 (2012), CFS 2000 (2012), CFS–1100, CFS–1200, CFS–1000–L1, CFS–1000–F, CFS–1000– LE, CFS–1000–L1a. Type of Request: Reinstatement, with change, of an expired collection. Burden Hours: 800,000. Number of Respondents: 100,000. Average Hours per Response: 2 hours. Needs and Uses: The 2012 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS), a component of the 2012 Economic Census, is the only comprehensive source of multi-modal, system-wide data on the volume and pattern of goods movement in the United States. The CFS is conducted through a partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau and the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), Department of Transportation (DOT). The survey provides a crucial set of statistics on the value, weight, mode, and distance of commodities shipped by mining, manufacturing, wholesale, and selected retail and services establishments, as well as auxiliary establishments that support these industries. The U.S. Census Bureau will publish these shipment characteristics for the nation, census regions and divisions, states, and CFS defined geographic areas. As with the 2007 Commodity Flow Survey, this survey also identifies export and hazardous material shipments. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47539 The DOT consistently views updated information on freight flows as critical to understanding the use, performance, and condition of the nation’s transportation system, as well as transportation investments and the unintended consequences of transportation. Data on the movement of freight also are important for effective analyses of changes in regional and local economic development, safety issues, and environmental concerns. They also provide the private sector with valuable data needed for critical decision-making on a variety of issues including market trends, analysis, and segmentation. Each day, governments, businesses, and consumers make countless decisions about where to go, how to get there, what to ship and which transportation modes to use. Transportation constantly responds to external forces such as shifting markets, changing demographics, safety concerns, weather conditions, energy and environmental constraints, and national defense requirements. Good decisions require having the right information in the right form at the right time. The CFS is the primary source of information about freight movement in the United States. Estimates of shipment characteristics are published for differing levels of aggregation. The CFS produces summary statistics only, and no confidential data are released. The survey covers shipments from establishments in the mining, manufacturing, wholesale, and selected retail industries, as well as auxiliary establishments that support these industries. Federal agencies, state and local transportation planners and policy makers, and private sector transportation managers, analysts, and researchers have strongly supported the conduct of the CFS. The 2012 CFS will be a mail-out/mailback or electronic reporting sample survey of approximately 100,000 business establishments in the mining, manufacturing, wholesale, and selected retail and services industries, as well as auxiliary establishments that support these industries. Respondents will be asked to provide a quarterly response for a one-year period. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Frequency: Every 5 years. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Sections 131, 193, and 224. OMB Desk Officer: Brian HarrisKojetin, (202) 395–7314. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Diana Hynek, E:\FR\FM\05AUN1.SGM 05AUN1
