Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 103 / Wednesday, May 29, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 450k(a)(2)(A)(ii). The joint regulations at 25 CFR part 900 was developed through negotiated rulemaking with tribes in 1996 and governs, among other things, what must be included in a tribe’s initial ISDEAA contract proposal to the BIA. A response is required to obtain and retain a benefit. The information requirements for this joint rule represent significant differences from other agencies in several respects. Under the Act, the Secretaries of Health and Human Services and the Interior are directed to enter into self-determination contracts with tribes upon request, unless specific declination criteria apply, and, generally, tribes may renew these contracts annually, whereas other agencies provide grants on a discretionary or competitive basis. Both the BIA and IHS award contracts for multiple programs whereas other agencies usually award single grants to tribes. This information collection addresses only the information that BIA collects under the joint rule. The BIA uses the information collected to determine applicant eligibility, evaluate applicant capabilities, protect the service population, safeguard Federal funds and other resources, and permit the Federal agencies to administer and evaluate contract programs. Tribal governments or tribal organizations provide the information by submitting contract proposals, and related information, to the appropriate Federal agency, as required under the ISDEAA. No third party notification or public disclosure burden is associated with this collection. IHS estimates are not included in this submission as they will provide their estimates to OMB at a later date. The revisions included in this renewal include two information collection items that were not previously included. II. Request for Comments The BIA requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents. Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an individual VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:07 May 28, 2013 Jkt 229001 need not respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB Control Number. It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before including your address, phone number, email address or other personally identifiable information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information— may be made publicly available at any time.

Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement. AGENCY: ACTION: Pursuant to § 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), and pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR part 1500–08), the National Park Service (NPS) is initiating the conservation planning and environmental impact analysis process for the proposed replacement and potential relocation of the existing Scorpion Pier at Santa Cruz Island’s eastern waterfront. The NPS is the lead federal agency for environmental review under NEPA. The lead state agency for environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act is currently being determined. As described in 36 CFR 800.8(c), the NPS is also using the NEPA process to fulfill certain provisions of § 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act related to consultation and public involvement.

DATES: Karl Bachman, Facility Manager, Channel Island National Park, at (805) 658–5710. Background: Santa Cruz Island and the surrounding one nautical mile of marine waters are located in Channel Islands National Park. The NPS owns and manages the eastern 24% of the island, including the Scorpion Valley area. Santa Cruz Island is surrounded by the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary which extends six nautical miles from the island. The Scorpion Pier is also within the Scorpion State Marine Reserve designated by the State of California. Over 55,000 people come ashore at the Scorpion pier annually for recreational activities including hiking, picnicking, camping, kayaking, and swimming. Many people also visit the island’s historic Scorpion Ranch. The existing Scorpion Pier is a flatbed railcar that was installed as a temporary facility in 2000. The pier is rapidly deteriorating due to wave action and saltwater. It has been closed numerous times due to weather hazards and to perform required repair and maintenance activities. The pier sometimes cannot be used by park or concession boats, such as during low tides, because of inadequate water depth. The existing pier access road undergoes reconstruction several times per year due to wave erosion. Purpose and Need and Preliminary Alternatives: The NPS seeks to construct a permanent replacement pier that provides a safe, accessible, efficient, and sustainable access point for visitors and Park staff to Santa Cruz Island. Additionally, the NPS intends that this replacement pier, along with proposed improvements to the access road, will decrease future impacts to the island’s sensitive archaeological resources. Permanent replacement of the pier is required due to the following current conditions: • Shallow water depths at the pier, especially during low tide; • Difficult vessel navigation and mooring during moderate to extreme wind and wave conditions; • Challenging and limited access for visitors embarking from ferries onto the pier and from the pier onto the ferries; FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\29MYN1.SGM 29MYN1
