Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 9 / Monday, January 14, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with Department sponsoring the collection: Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: United States Border State, Local, and Tribal governments. Other: None. Abstract: The Southwest Border Prosecutor Initiative was enacted in FY 2002 to reimburse state, county, parish, or municipal governments for the costs associated with the prosecution of criminal cases declined by local U.S. Attorneys. Each year, hundreds of criminal cases resulting from federal arrests are referred to local prosecutors to handle when the cases fall below certain monetary, quantity, or severity thresholds. This places additional burdens on local government resources that are already stretched by the demands of prosecuting violations of local and state laws. This program provides funds to eligible jurisdictions in the four southwest border states, using a uniform payment-per-case basis for qualifying federally initiated and declined-referred criminal cases that were disposed of after October 1, 2001. Up to 220 eligible jurisdictions may apply. This includes county governments and the four state governments in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is estimated that no more than 220 respondents will apply. Each application takes approximately 60 minutes to complete and is submitted 4 times per year (quarterly). (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total hour burden to complete the applications is 880 hours (880 applications (220 × 4 times a year) × 60 minutes = 52,800/60 minutes per hour = 880 burden hours).
