Description of Information Collection Title: Emergency Watershed Protection Program. OMB Number: 0578–0030. Expiration Date: January 31, 2012. Type of Request: To request comments on a currently approved collection for which approval will expire. 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. The purpose of EWP information collection is to provide assistance to sponsors to undertake emergency measures to retard runoff and prevent soil erosion to safeguard lives and property from floods, drought, and the products of erosion on any watershed whenever fire, flood, or other natural disaster is causing or has caused a sudden impairment of that watershed. The sponsor’s request is submitted formally as a letter (now the Appendix to NRCS– PDM–20A) to the NRCS State Conservationist for consideration. The Damage Survey Report (NRCS–PDM–20) is the agency decisionmaking document that includes the economic, social, and environmental evaluation and the engineer’s cost estimate. This information collection allows the responsible Federal official to make EWP program eligibility determinations and provide Federal cost-share contribution to complete the measures. This request is necessary to implement the EWP program for which NRCS has statutory authority. The table below lists the forms in this collection, the uses for each document, and the applicable programs. These forms constitute this information collection and reflect the documents used by EWP sponsors to request participation in the recovery program.

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Southeast Region Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper IFQ Program. OMB Control Number: 0648–0551. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (revision and extension of a current information collection). Number of Respondents: 487. Average Hours Per Response: Transfer of shares, 2 minutes; dealer landing transaction report, notification of landing, transfer of allocation, PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52933 5 minutes; landing correction form, 3 minutes; online account application, 10 minutes. Burden Hours: 982. Needs and Uses: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Southeast Region manages the U.S. fisheries of the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the South Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico under the Fishery Management Plans (FMP) for each Region. The Regional Fishery Management Councils prepared the FMPs pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. NMFS manages the red snapper fishery in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico under the Reef Fish FMP. The Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) program was implemented to reduce the overcapacity in the fishery and end the derby fishing conditions that resulted from that overcapitalization. The recordkeeping and reporting requirements at 50 CFR part 622 form the basis for this collection of information. NMFS Southeast Region requests information from fishery participants. This information, upon receipt, results in an increasingly more efficient and accurate database for management and monitoring of the fisheries of the EEZ of Gulf of Mexico. Dealer, shareholder and fishermen annual reporting requirements have been removed, as the information can be obtained through other current reporting requirements. Also, the burden for online account activation has been removed, as all eligible shareholders have activated their accounts; however, there is a new burden for account renewal. A one-time percentage of share ownership has been removed, as it is now covered under another OMB Control No. as part of a permit application. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. OMB Desk Officer: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, (202) 482–0266, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov).
