ADDRESSES: Written comments and suggestions regarding items contained in this notice, and especially with regard to the estimated public burden and associated response time should be directed to DHS using one of the following methods: (1) Via the Federal eRulemaking Portal Web site at www.Regulations.gov under e-Docket ID number USCIS–2008–0025; (2) by email to USCISFRComment@uscis.dhs.gov; or (3) by mail to DHS, USCIS, Office of Policy and Strategy, Chief, Regulatory Coordination Division, 20 Massachusetts Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20529–2140. All submissions received must include the OMB Control Number 1615–0052 in the subject box, the agency name and Docket ID 2008–0025. Regardless of the method used for submitting comments or material, all submissions will be posted, without change, to the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov, and will include any personal information you provide. Therefore, submitting this information makes it public. You may wish to consider limiting the amount of personal information that you provide in any voluntary submission you make to DHS. DHS may withhold information provided in comments from public viewing that it determines may impact the privacy of an individual or is offensive. For additional information, please read the Privacy Act notice that is available via the link in the footer of http://www.regulations.gov. DATES: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with Note: The address listed in this notice should only be used to submit comments concerning this information collection. Please do not submit requests for individual case status inquiries to this address. If you are seeking information about the status of your individual case, please check ‘‘My Case Status’’ online at: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/ Dashboard.do, or call the USCIS National Customer Service Center at 1–800–375–5283. Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected agencies should address one or more of the following four points: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information 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 of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 Dec 19, 2012 Jkt 229001 (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 through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. USCIS continually reviews its information collection tools for accuracy, completeness, and utility and, as a result, the agency is proposing the addition of a number of questions to Form N–400. These additional questions will allow USCIS to make more informed decisions on the eligibility of respondents to the form. Form N–400 is the final information collection activity that occurs before an eligibility determination for naturalization is made. Even if the applicant for naturalization has received a previous immigration benefit from USCIS, the length of time that may have transpired between the initial interaction that the respondent had with USCIS on another immigration benefit request and the filing of the N–400 requires USCIS to verify that actions taken by the respondent during the intervening years do not affect his or her eligibility for naturalization. The form is also updated to examine the inadmissibility grounds that were added by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. Public Law 108–458 (Dec. 17, 2004). USCIS added these questions as required by the agreement reached through a working group comprised of representatives of affected agencies, including the Departments of Justice and State, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of DHS. These additional questions are necessary for USCIS to meet the statutory requirements and the President’s directive to make a determination that a person is ineligible to naturalize because of his or her past involvement with terrorism, persecution, torture, or genocide. See, Presidential Proclamation—Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Persons Who Participate in Serious Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Violations and Other Abuses, at http:// www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/ 2011/08/04/presidential-proclamationsuspension-entry-immigrants-andnonimmigrants. Because Form N–400 has changed significantly, the burden estimate in this notice is not based on the experience and observations of actual public usage. USCIS would appreciate and encourages the public’s PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75441 input on the burden estimate so as to provide the most accurate estimate possible. Overview of This Information Collection (1) Type of Information Collection: Revision of a Currently Approved Collection. (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Application for Naturalization. (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the DHS sponsoring the collection: N–400; USCIS. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals or households. USCIS uses the information gathered on Form N–400 to make a determination as to a respondent’s eligibility to naturalize and become a United States citizen. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 764,450 respondents with an estimated response per respondent of 6 hours and 55 minutes for the form N– 400 and 1 hour and 17 minutes for the biometric processing.

The Cobell Settlement Agreement (as confirmed by the Claims Resolution Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 11–291) and approved with finality after appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court were exhausted (Settlement)), provides, in part, for a $1.9 billion Trust Land Consolidation Fund (Fund). The Settlement charges the Department of the Interior (Department) with the responsibility to expend the Fund within a 10-year period to acquire, at fair market value, fractional interests in trust or restricted fee land that individuals are willing to sell to the Department. The Secretary has established the Buy-Back Program to implement this aspect of the Settlement. There are approximately 150 reservations with 2.9 million purchasable fractional interests that are owned by more than 218,000 unique individuals. The overall goal of the BuyBack Program is to reduce the number of those fractional interests through voluntary land purchases, which will create consolidated trust land bases for beneficial use by tribal communities.
