Amendment to Certification of Nebraska's Central Filing System, 63159-63160 [2013-24737]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 23, 2013 / Notices Type of Request: Extension with revision. Abstract: FSA published the original notice and request for comments in the Federal Register on Friday, August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48135). The following information is being provided again and to amend the estimated total annual burden hours due to merger of two information collections. This information collected under OMB Number 0560–0155 is needed to effectively administer the FSA’s general guaranteed farm loan programs. The information is collected by the FSA loan official in consultation with participating commercial lenders. The basic objective of the guaranteed loan program is to provide credit to applicants who are unable to obtain credit from lending institutions without a guarantee. The reporting requirements imposed on the public by the regulations at 7 CFR part 762 are necessary to administer the guaranteed loan program in accordance with statutory requirements of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act and are consistent with commonly performed lending practices. FSA also provides guarantees for loans made by private sellers of a farm or ranch on a land contract sales basis. This information is needed to effectively administer the FSA Land Contract Guarantee Program. Since this program is also a guarantee program, FSA is merging the annual burden hours into the general Guaranteed Loan Program information collection. The reporting requirements imposed on the public by the regulations at 7 CFR part 763 are necessary to administer the Land Contract Guaranteed Loan Program in accordance with statutory requirements of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act and as specified in the 2008 Farm Bill. Collection of information after loans are made is necessary to protect the Government’s financial interest. Overall, the number of respondents is estimated to increase by 458, the number of responses is estimated to decrease by 14,709, and the number of burden hours is estimated to decrease by 7,873 in comparison to the information that was published on August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48135). The changes are due to less usage of the interest assistance agreement form and merging the burden hours of the Land Contract Guarantee Program into the Guaranteed Loan Program information collection. The separate approval for OMB control number of 0560–0279 will discontinue when FSA receives OMB approval for the extension and revision VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:13 Oct 22, 2013 Jkt 232001 of the OMB control number of 0560– 0155. FSA believes that requesting additional time to comment on the notice is reasonable and provides the public the opportunity to comment on the information collection. As result of reopening and extension, the comment period will close on December 23, 2013. All comments from the original notice published August 7, 2013 will be automatically included with the additional comments submitted in the response to this notice. Estimate of Average Time To Respond: 62.2 minutes per response. The average travel time, which is included in the total annual burden, is estimated to be 1 hour per respondent Type of Respondents: Farmers and ranchers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 16,183. Estimated Number of Report Filed per Respondent: 15.7. Estimated Total Annual Number of Responses: 243,977. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 253,097. We are requesting comments on all aspects of this information collection to help us to: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of FSA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of FSA’s estimate of burden including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (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. All responses to this notice, including name and addresses when provided, will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Signed on September 26, 2013. Juan M. Garcia, Administrator, Farm Service Agency.

Amendment to Certification of Nebraska's Central Filing System

AGENCY: Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration, USDA.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: In response to a request from Nebraska's Secretary of State we 
are approving amendments to the debtor identification and signature 
requirements of the certified central filing system for Nebraska to 
permit the conversion of all debtor social security and taxpayer 
identification numbers into approved unique identifiers. The proposed 
specific procedure whereby Nebraska will automatically convert social 
security numbers and taxpayer identification numbers into ten number 
unique identifiers has been reviewed and determined to permit the 
numerical searching of master lists while providing protection against 
identity theft.

DATES: Effective Date: October 23, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards 
Administration (GIPSA) administers the Clear Title program for the 
Secretary of Agriculture. The Clear Title program is authorized by 
Section 1324 of the Food Security Act of 1985, which requires that 
States implementing central filing systems for notification of liens on 
farm products have such systems certified by the Secretary.

available through the Internet on the GIPSA Web site (https://www.gipsa.usda.gov). Farm products covered by a State's central filing 
system are also identified through the GIPSA Web site. The Nebraska

incorporate the use of an approved unique identifier other than a 
Social Security Number or Tax Payer Identification Number, in 
accordance with the 2004 amendments to Section 1324 of the Food 
Security Act.
    This notice announces our approval of the amended certification for 
Nebraska's central filing system. Details of the specific procedures by 
which Nebraska will create approved unique identifiers are being 
provided by GIPSA to the Secretaries of State of other states
