Title: Facility License Standards. OMB Control Number: 3141–0012. Background: IGRA states that ‘‘a separate license issued by the Indian tribe shall be required for each place, facility, or location on Indian lands at which class II [and class III] gaming is conducted.’’ 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(1) and (d)(1)(A)(iii). Further, IGRA requires ‘‘the construction and maintenance of the gaming facilities, and the operation of that gaming is conducted in a manner which adequately protects the environment and public health and safety.’’ 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(2)(E). NIGC regulations, part 559 requires that a tribe submit a notice to the NIGC that it is considering issuing a facility license, including applicable Indian lands information, at least 120 days before a new class II and/or class III gaming facility is opened. The amount of Indian lands information depends, in part, on whether the Bureau of Indian Affairs maintains the necessary records. The Indian lands information will continue to be utilized by the NIGC to ensure that its records are complete for internal purposes, such as assessing the NIGC’s jurisdiction to regulate the gaming on the parcel, as well as responding to inquiries from government agencies and Congress as to the statuses of lands where Indian gaming is proposed or occurring. Part 559 also requires that tribes submit copies of each newly issued or renewed facility license to the NIGC within 30 days of issuance, as well as notices of facility closures. This information will enable the NIGC to maintain accurate, up-to-date records of the Indian gaming facilities that are operating on Indian lands in the United States at any given point in time. Currently, facility licenses must be renewed every three years. With each new facility license, the Tribe must submit an attestation that it has identified and enforces environment and public health and safety laws and that the tribe is in compliance with those laws. Part 559 also requires tribes to submit a document listing all environmental and public safety laws, resolutions, codes, policies and standards applicable to its gaming facility. If the submitted laws, resolutions, etc. do not change, the tribe need only certify that fact when submitting a renewed facility license. Finally, the NIGC Chair has the discretion to request environmental and public health and safety documentation on occasions when there is an identified, substantial concern. Through VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 Feb 15, 2012 Jkt 226001 these submissions, the NIGC can ensure that the tribes have determined that the construction, maintenance, and operation of their gaming facilities are conducted in a manner that adequately protects the environment and the public health and safety. This information collection serves two purposes: (i) to receive up-to-date information from tribes regarding the number of licensed Indian gaming facilities and the Indian lands status of the site of each gaming facility; and (ii) to obtain certifications from the tribes that the construction, maintenance, and operation of the gaming facilities are conducted in a manner that adequately protects the environment and the public health and safety. Brief Description of Collection: This collection is mandatory and enables the NIGC to conduct its statutory duty to regulate Indian gaming by ensuring that tribal gaming facilities are properly licensed by the tribes. Respondents: Indian tribal gaming operations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 565. Estimated Annual Responses: 75. Estimated Time per Response: The range of time can vary from 2 burden hours to 10 burden hours for one item. Frequency of Response: Varies. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: $13,125.
