SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This information collection is required under the Reclamation 
Reform Act of 1982 (RRA), Acreage Limitation Rules and Regulations, 43 
CFR part 426, and Information Requirements for Certain Farm Operations 
In Excess of 960 Acres and the Eligibility of Certain Formerly Excess 
Land, 43 CFR part 428. This information collection requires certain 
landholders (direct or indirect landowners or lessees) and farm 
operators to complete forms demonstrating their compliance with the 
acreage limitation provisions of Federal reclamation law. The forms in 
this information collection are submitted to districts that use the 
information to establish each landholder's status with respect to 
landownership limitations, full-cost pricing thresholds, lease 
requirements, and other provisions of Federal reclamation law. In 
addition, forms are submitted by certain farm operators to provide 
information concerning the services they provide and the nature of 
their farm operating arrangements. All landholders whose entire 
westwide

[[Page 57589]]

landholdings total 40 acres or less are exempt from the requirement to 
submit RRA forms. Landholders who are ``qualified recipients'' have RRA 
forms submittal thresholds of 80 acres or 240 acres depending on the 
district's RRA forms submittal threshold category where the land is 
held. Only farm operators who provide multiple services to more than 
960 acres held in trusts or by legal entities are required to submit 
forms.

II. Changes to the RRA Forms and Their Instructions

    The changes made to the currently approved RRA forms and the 
corresponding instructions are of a formatting or editorial nature, and 
are designed to assist the respondents by increasing their 
understanding of the forms, clarifying the instructions for completing 
the forms, and clarifying the information that is required to be on the 
forms. The proposed revisions to the RRA forms will be effective in the 
2014 water year.
