The estimated average burden associated with this collection is 25 minutes per respondent or record keeper, depending on individual circumstances. The Firearms Disposition Transaction Record Form must be retained for at least five years. If the transfer of a firearm is denied or cancelled by the NICS, or for any reason the transfer is not completed (delayed or unresolved) after a NICS check is initiated, the criminal justice agency must retain the Firearms Disposition Transaction Record Form for at least five years. The estimated total annual recordkeeping burden associated with this requirement is unknown at this time due to the uncertainty of the number of firearms that are currently in the possession of criminal justice agencies. The FBI invites the public to comment on this proposed collection of information to help it (i) 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; (ii) 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; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) 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. Comments on the proposed information collection should be sent to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of OMB, Attention: Desk Officer for the Department of Justice and include the RIN for this proposed rule and the title of the collection. OMB encourages commenters to submit their comments via email to oira_submissions@omb.eop.gov, by fax to (202) 395–7285, or by physical mail to 725 17th Street NW., Room 10104, Washington, DC 20038.

ACTION: Proposed rule. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to amend its regulations to adjust its Class I civil penalties under the Clean Water Act and the National Fishing Enhancement Act to account for inflation. The adjustment of civil penalties to account for inflation is required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended. Since we have not made any adjustments to our Class I penalties to account for inflation since 2004, we are proposing to make a second round of penalty adjustments to account for inflation. Using the adjustment criteria provided in the statute, the Class I civil penalty under the Clean Water Act would remain at $11,000 per violation, but the maximum civil penalty would increase to $32,500. Under the National Fishing Enhancement Act, the Class I civil penalty would remain at $11,000 per violation. Increasing the maximum amount of the Class I civil penalty under the Clean Water Act to account for inflation will maintain the deterrent effects of the penalty. DATES: Comments must be received by February 27, 2013.

Civil Monetary Penalty Inflation Adjustment

AGENCY: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to amend 
its regulations to adjust its Class I civil penalties under the Clean 
Water Act and the National Fishing Enhancement Act to account for 
inflation. The adjustment of civil penalties to account for inflation 
is required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 
1990, as amended. Since we have not made any adjustments to our Class I 
penalties to account for inflation since 2004, we are proposing to make 
a second round of penalty adjustments to account for inflation. Using 
the adjustment criteria provided in the statute, the Class I civil 
penalty under the Clean Water Act would remain at $11,000 per 
violation, but the maximum civil penalty would increase to $32,500. 
Under the National Fishing Enhancement Act, the Class I civil penalty 
would remain at $11,000 per violation. Increasing the maximum amount of 
the Class I civil penalty under the Clean Water Act to account for 
inflation will maintain the deterrent effects of the penalty.

DATES: Comments must be received by February 27, 2013.
