Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing of mineral resources on the OCS. An amendment to the OCS Lands Act (Pub. L. 103–426) authorizes the Secretary to negotiate agreements (in PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52963 Hours per response Burden hours 0.753 × 161,548 lieu of the previously required competitive bidding process) for the use of OCS sand, gravel, and shell resources for certain specified types of public uses. The specified uses will support construction of governmental projects for beach nourishment, shore protection, and wetlands enhancement; or any project authorized by the Federal Government. Section 1340 states that ‘‘* * * any person authorized by the Secretary may conduct geological and geophysical [G&G] explorations in the Outer Continental Shelf, which do not interfere with or endanger actual operations under any lease maintained or granted pursuant to this Act, and which are not unduly harmful to aquatic life in such area.’’ Section 1352 further requires that certain costs be reimbursed to the parties submitting required G&G information and data. Permittees are to be reimbursed costs of reproducing any G&G data required to be submitted and for the reasonable cost of processing geophysical information required to be submitted when processing is in a form or manner required by the Director and is not used in the normal conduct of the business of the permittee. Regulations implementing these responsibilities are in 30 CFR part 280. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and the OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Prospecting permits are subject to cost recovery under Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, and BOEMRE regulations specify service fees for these requests. We use the information: (1) To ensure there is no environmental degradation, personal harm or unsafe operations and E:\FR\FM\24AUN1.SGM 24AUN1
