SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement Title: Critical Facility Information of the Top 100 Most Critical Pipelines. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0050. Forms(s): Critical Facility Security Review (CFSR). PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Affected Public: Pipeline companies. Abstract: Section 1557(b) of the Implementing the Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 specifically tasked TSA to develop and implement a plan for inspecting critical facilities of the 100 most critical pipeline systems. See Public Law 110– 53, 121 Stat. 266, 475 (Aug. 3, 2007). Operators determined their critical facilities based on guidance and criteria set forth in the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) September 5, 2002, ‘‘Pipeline Security Information Circular’’ and June 2002 ‘‘Pipeline Security Contingency Planning Guidance.’’ With OMB approval (OMB Control Number 1652–0050), TSA reached out to the operators of the top 125 critical pipeline systems and requested they submit a listing of their critical facilities to TSA. This critical facility information was submitted to TSA between November 2008 and August 2009. In April 2011, TSA updated the ‘‘Pipeline Security Guidelines’’ in consultation with stakeholders and DOT. TSA is now seeking to renew its OMB approval to request critical facility information from the top 125 pipeline operators. TSA anticipates that each operator will report, on average, a total of 5 critical facilities on their system, for a total of approximately 600 critical facilities across the top 125 operators. Once updated critical facility information is obtained, TSA intends to visit critical pipeline facilities and collect site-specific information from pipeline operators on facility security policies, procedures, and physical security measures. Information obtained on the visits will be collected on a Critical Facility Security Review (CFSR) Form. The CFSR will differ from TSA’s Corporate Security Review (CSR) in that a CSR looks at corporate or companywide security management plans and practices while the CFSR will look at individual pipeline facility security measures and procedures. TSA is seeking OMB approval to utilize the CFSR document during critical facility reviews in order to collect facility security information. Information collected from the reviews would be analyzed and used to determine strengths and weaknesses at the nation’s critical pipeline facilities, areas to target for risk reduction strategies, pipeline industry implementation of the voluntary guidelines, and the need for regulations in accordance with Section 1557(d) of the Implementing the Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007. TSA anticipates visiting 120 critical facilities each year. E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 11, 2011 / Notices As part of this collection process, TSA intends to follow-up with pipeline operators on their implementation of security improvements and recommendations made during facility visits. During critical facility visits, TSA documents and provides recommendations to improve the security posture of the facility. TSA intends to follow-up with pipeline operators via email on their status toward implementation of the recommendations made during the critical facility visits. The follow-up will be conducted between approximately 12 and 24 months after the facility visit. TSA will use the information collected to determine to what extent the pipeline industry is implementing the 2011 guidance document and security improvement recommendations made during critical facility visits. The information provided by owners or operators for each information collection is Sensitive Security Information (SSI), and it will be protected in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 CFR parts 15 and 1520. Number of Respondents: 125 for the renewal of the critical facility information and 590 for the critical facility security reviews and recommendations follow-up. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 2,730 hours in the first year and 1,080 hours annually in subsequent years. Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on October 4, 2011.

The BLM intends to use a collaborative, multi-jurisdictional approach with local, state, tribal and Federal agencies to jointly determine the desired future condition of public lands and provide consistency with existing plans and policies to the extent that those plans and policies are consistent with Federal law governing the administration of public land. 3. The BLM intends to limit its RMP amendment to enlarging the Blanca Wetlands ACEC and analyzing the three range allotments (Lakes, Dry Lakes and Blanca). 4. The BLM intends to address the socioeconomic impacts of the alternatives. 5. The amendment process will follow the NEPA planning process and will include an EA. If a Finding of No Significant Impact cannot be reached, an EIS will follow. At present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary issues concerning the RMP amendment and associated EA. The BLM welcomes public comments on potential issues in addition to those identified here: 1. Compatibility of grazing with wetland habitat and waterbird production; 2. Need for restoration and connectivity of wetland habitat; 3. Impacts to cultural resources; 4. Impacts to mineral resource production; 5. Potential for recreational development and conflicts in priorities between recreation and wildlife. E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Critical Facility Information of the Top 100 Most Critical 
Pipelines.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0050.
    Forms(s): Critical Facility Security Review (CFSR).
    Affected Public: Pipeline companies.
    Abstract: Section 1557(b) of the Implementing the Recommendations 
of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 specifically tasked TSA to develop 
and implement a plan for inspecting critical facilities of the 100 most 
critical pipeline systems. See Public Law 110-53, 121 Stat. 266, 475 
(Aug. 3, 2007). Operators determined their critical facilities based on 
guidance and criteria set forth in the Department of Transportation's 
(DOT) September 5, 2002, ``Pipeline Security Information Circular'' and 
June 2002 ``Pipeline Security Contingency Planning Guidance.'' With OMB 
approval (OMB Control Number 1652-0050), TSA reached out to the 
operators of the top 125 critical pipeline systems and requested they 
submit a listing of their critical facilities to TSA. This critical 
facility information was submitted to TSA between November 2008 and 
August 2009. In April 2011, TSA updated the ``Pipeline Security 
Guidelines'' in consultation with stakeholders and DOT. TSA is now 
seeking to renew its OMB approval to request critical facility 
information from the top 125 pipeline operators. TSA anticipates that 
each operator will report, on average, a total of 5 critical facilities 
on their system, for a total of approximately 600 critical facilities 
across the top 125 operators.
    Once updated critical facility information is obtained, TSA intends 
to visit critical pipeline facilities and collect site-specific 
information from pipeline operators on facility security policies, 
procedures, and physical security measures. Information obtained on the 
visits will be collected on a Critical Facility Security Review (CFSR) 
Form. The CFSR will differ from TSA's Corporate Security Review (CSR) 
in that a CSR looks at corporate or company-wide security management 
plans and practices while the CFSR will look at individual pipeline 
facility security measures and procedures. TSA is seeking OMB approval 
to utilize the CFSR document during critical facility reviews in order 
to collect facility security information. Information collected from 
the reviews would be analyzed and used to determine strengths and 
weaknesses at the nation's critical pipeline facilities, areas to 
target for risk reduction strategies, pipeline industry implementation 
of the voluntary guidelines, and the need for regulations in accordance 
with Section 1557(d) of the Implementing the Recommendations of the 9/
11 Commission Act of 2007. TSA anticipates visiting 120 critical 
facilities each year.

[[Page 62819]]

    As part of this collection process, TSA intends to follow-up with 
pipeline operators on their implementation of security improvements and 
recommendations made during facility visits. During critical facility 
visits, TSA documents and provides recommendations to improve the 
security posture of the facility. TSA intends to follow-up with 
pipeline operators via email on their status toward implementation of 
the recommendations made during the critical facility visits. The 
follow-up will be conducted between approximately 12 and 24 months 
after the facility visit.
    TSA will use the information collected to determine to what extent 
the pipeline industry is implementing the 2011 guidance document and 
security improvement recommendations made during critical facility 
visits. The information provided by owners or operators for each 
information collection is Sensitive Security Information (SSI), and it 
will be protected in accordance with procedures meeting the 
transmission, handling and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 
CFR parts 15 and 1520.
    Number of Respondents: 125 for the renewal of the critical facility 
information and 590 for the critical facility security reviews and 
recommendations follow-up.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 2,730 hours in the 
first year and 1,080 hours annually in subsequent years.

    Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on October 4, 2011.
