SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 7 CFR Part 210, National School Lunch Program. Form Number: FNS–13. OMB Number: 0584–0075. Expiration Date: 2/28/2014. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: FNS uses the Annual Report of State Revenue Matching, Form FNS– 13, to collect data on State revenue matching to meet the reporting required by 7 CFR 210.17(g). The Food and Nutrition Service administers the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, and the Special Milk Program as mandated by the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1751, et seq.), and the Child Estimated number of respondent Respondent Reporting Burden: State agency .........................................

Information on school program operations is collected from State agencies on a yearly basis to monitor and make adjustments to State agency funding requirements. As provided in 7 CFR 210.17, each school year, State revenues must be appropriated or used specifically by the State for Federal school lunch program purposes. The amount that must be appropriated or used generally is at least 30% of the funds received by the State under Section 4 of the NSLA (42 U.S.C. 1753) during the school year beginning July 1, 1980, unless exemptions or waivers are met, as described in 7 CFR 210.17. The form is an intrinsic part of the accounting system currently being used by the subject programs to ensure proper reimbursement as well as to facilitate adequate recordkeeping. The FNS–13 form is provided to States through a web-based Federal reporting system and, 100 percent of the information is collected through electronic means. There are no changes required for the instructions on FNS–13. However, this revision made significant program adjustment to reporting burden hours as a result of automation and the advancement of State systems technology. The response time (estimated average number of hours per response) is decreased from the previously approved 80 hours to 8 hours and hence the total number of burden hours is reduced from 4,560 to 456 hours. Affected Public: State agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 57 State agencies. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 57.

Notice of intent to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement. ACTION: The Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest will prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) to the 2009 Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) environmental analysis in response to a May 24, 2013 Order from the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana. The Court directed the Forest Service to ‘‘. . . supplement its EIS for the Forest Plan to explain or support, if possible, its decision to exclude temporary roads from the road density objectives . . . .’’ The supplement will address the Forest Plan Goal for Wildlife Security and density of roads and trails open to motorized use displayed in Tables 13 and 14 on pages 45–47 of the Forest Plan. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Sep 06, 2013 Jkt 229001 Purpose and Need for Action The Forest Plan provides management direction for activities on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest for the next 10 to 15 years, including direction on eight revision topics (vegetation, wildlife, aquatic resources, recreation and travel management, fire management, livestock grazing, timber and recommended wilderness). In 2012, Native Ecosystems Council and Alliance for the Wild Rockies filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the District of Montana (case 9:12–cv–00027–DLC) alleging the Forest Plan failed to ensure elk viability because the Forest Service did not disclose and consider the best available science in its analysis of road density. In a May 24, 2013 Order, the U.S. District Court for the District of PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Montana found the Forest Service ‘‘. . . complied with the general requirements of the 1982 viability regulation for elk and adequately disclosed the science upon which it relied to determine appropriate road density levels for areas with different management goals. . . . However, the Forest Service did not explain or support its decision to exclude temporary roads from the road density objectives.’’ Therefore, there is a need to evaluate the effects of temporary roads to comply with the court’s order. Proposed Action We are uncertain if there is a need to change management direction in the Forest Plan. A determination will be made based upon the analysis of the effects of temporary road construction and use. The Draft SEIS may or may not propose an amendment to the Forest Plan. We expect to have a Draft SEIS available for public review and comment in February, 2014. The comment period for the Draft SEIS will be 90 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. We believe, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions. Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. E:\FR\FM\09SEN1.SGM 09SEN1 EN09SE13.001</GPH> Scoping is not required for supplements to environmental impact statements (40 CFR 1502.9(c)(4)). Review and comments will be solicited once the Draft SEIS is filed with EPA. The Draft SEIS is expected in February, 2014. ADDRESSES: The line officer responsible for the decision is the BeaverheadDeerlodge National Forest Supervisor, 420 Barrett Street, Dillon, MT 59725.

    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Abstract: FNS uses the Annual Report of State Revenue Matching, 
Form FNS-13, to collect data on State revenue matching to meet the 
reporting required by 7 CFR 210.17(g). The Food and Nutrition Service 
administers the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast 
Program, and the Special Milk Program as mandated by the Richard B. 
Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1751, 
et seq.), and the Child Nutrition Act of 1966, as amended (42 U.S.C. 
1771, et seq.). Information on school program operations is collected 
from State agencies on a yearly basis to monitor and make adjustments 
to State agency funding requirements. As provided in 7 CFR 210.17, each 
school year, State revenues must be appropriated or used specifically 
by the State for Federal school lunch program purposes. The amount that 
must be appropriated or used generally is at least 30% of the funds 
received by the State under Section 4 of the NSLA (42 U.S.C. 1753) 
during the school year beginning July 1, 1980, unless exemptions or 
waivers are met, as described in 7 CFR 210.17. The form is an intrinsic 
part of the accounting system currently being used by the subject 
programs to ensure proper reimbursement as well as to facilitate 
adequate recordkeeping. The FNS-13 form is provided to States through a 
web-based Federal reporting system and, 100 percent of the information 
is collected through electronic means. There are no changes required 
for the instructions on FNS-13. However, this revision made significant 
program adjustment to reporting burden hours as a result of automation 
and the advancement of State systems technology. The response time 
(estimated average number of hours per response) is decreased from the 
previously approved 80 hours to 8 hours and hence the total number of 
burden hours is reduced from 4,560 to 456 hours.
