The Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 was designed to permit regulation of certain agricultural commodities for the purpose of providing orderly marketing conditions in inter and intrastate commerce and improving returns to growers. The primary objective of the Order is to stabilize the supply of tart cherries. Only tart cherries that will be canned or frozen will be regulated. The Order is administered by an 18 member Board comprised of producers, handlers and one public member, plus alternates for each. The members will serve for a three-year term of office. Need and Use of the Information: Various forms were developed by the Board for persons to file required information relating to tart cherry inventories, shipments, diversions and other needed information to effectively carry out the requirements of the Order. The information collected is used to ensure compliance, verify eligibility, and vote on amendments, monitor and record grower’s information. Authorized Board employees and the industry are the primary users of the information. If information were not collected, it would eliminate needed data to keep the industry and the Secretary abreast of changes at the State and local level. Description of Respondents: Business or other for profit; not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 640. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually; quarterly; on occasion. Total Burden Hours: 727. Charlene Parker, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Title: Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, All Subtypes, and Newcastle Disease; Additional Restrictions. OMB Control Number: 0579–0245. Summary of Collection: The Animal Health Protection Act (AHPA), 7 U.S.C 8301, is the primary Federal law governing the protection of animal health. The law gives the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to detect, control, or eradicate pests or diseases of livestock or poultry. The agency charged with carrying out this disease prevention mission is the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), through its Veterinary Services (VS) Program. Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and Newcastle Disease are extremely infectious and often fatal disease affecting all types of birds and poultry. Need and Use of the Information: To protect the United States against an incursion of HPAI and Newcastle Disease, APHIS requires the use of several information collection activities, including an USDA–APHIS–VS Application For Permit To Import or Transport Controlled Materials or PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Organisms or Vectors (VS Form 16–3); a United States Veterinary Permit for Importation and Transportation of Controlled Materials and Organisms and Vectors (VS Form 16–6A); an Application for Approval or Report of Inspection Establishment Handling Restricted Animal Byproducts or Controlled Materials (VS Form 16–25); USDA–APHIS–VS Agreement for Handling Restricted Imports of Animal By-Products and Controlled Materials (VS Form 16–26); USDA–APHIS–VS Report of Entry, Shipment of Restricted Imported Animal Products and Animal By-Products, and Other Material (VS Form 16–78); USDA–APHIS–VS Application for Import or in Transit Permit (Animals, Animal Semen, Animal Embryos, Birds, Poultry, and Hatching Eggs) (VS Form 17–129); USDA–APHIS Agreement of Pet Bird Owner (VS Form 17–8); application of seals and agreements; notarized declaration or affirmation; notification of signs of disease in a recently imported bird; cooperative service agreements, and recordkeeping by processing establishments. APHIS will collect information to ensure that U.S. birds and poultry undergo appropriate examinations before entering the United States. Without the information, it would be impossible for APHIS to establish an effective line of defense against an introduction of HPAI and Newcastle Disease.

The regulations in ‘‘Subpart-Citrus Fruit’’ (7 CFR 319.28) allow the importation of unshu oranges from Kyushu Island and Honshu Island, Japan, into the United States under certain conditions. A certificate must accompany the unshu oranges from the Japanese plant protection service certifying that the fruit is apparently free of citrus canker.

The information from the forms will be used to certify that unshu oranges from Japan are free of citrus canker. To ensure that the oranges from Kyushu Island are not imported into citrus-producing areas of the United States such as Florida and California, individuals boxes must be stamped or printed with a statement specifying the State into which the oranges may be imported and from which they are prohibited removal under a Federal quarantine. Failing to collect this information would cripple APHIS’ ability to ensure that Unshu oranges from Japan are not carrying citrus canker.

Notice; correction. On December 15, 2000, the USDA Forest Service published a notice of intent (NOI) in the Federal Register (65 FR 78464) to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for controlling invasive plants in the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests. The agency published a notice of availability (NOA) for the Draft EIS in the Federal Register (69 FR 42722) on July 16, 2004. A record of decision was signed on September 12, 2005 and an NOA was subsequently published in the Federal Register (70 FR 69967) on November 18, 2005. Members of the public appealed the decision before the Regional Forester of the Southwestern Region, who reviewed the decision in accordance with 36 CFR 215.7. The Regional Forester’s decision, issued on February 23, 2006, reversed the Responsible Officials’ decision on the project, with the following instructions: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64909 (1) Complete the analysis of effects on the Management Indicator Species population trend for ptarmigan. (2) Strengthen the disclosure of cumulative effects to wildlife species. (3) Address the concern about the use of picloram in municipal watersheds. On September 10, 2009, the USDA Forest Service published a corrected NOI in the Federal Register (74 FR 46562). The NOI listed the date of completion and distribution for the draft supplemental environmental impact statement (DSEIS) as being December 2009. Revised dates: It is estimated the DSEIS will be completed and available for review no later than March 31, 2014. A 45-day comment period will follow. The Forest Service estimates the final supplemental environmental impact statement (FSEIS) and draft records of decision (each forest is preparing its own record of decision) will be released in July 2014. Pursuant to 36 CFR 218, a 45-day objection period will follow. The final records of decision are expected to be released no later than December 2014. ADDRESSES: The DSEIS will be posted on these Web sites: Carson National Forest: https:// www.fs.usda.gov/land/carson/ landmanagement Santa Fe National Forest: https:// www.fs.usda.gov/projects/santafe/ landmanagement A limited number of paper copies will be available upon request from either forest: Carson Forest Supervisor’s Office, 208 Cruz Alta Road, Taos, NM 87571, Attn: Planning; or Santa Fe National Forest Supervisor’s Office, 11 Forest Lane, Santa Fe, NM 87508, Attn: Julie Bain. The address to which to send comments will be published with the DSEIS. DATES: Julie Bain, Forest Environmental Coordinator, Santa Fe National Forest Supervisor’s Office, 11 Forest Lane, Santa Fe, NM 87508, (505) 438–5443, jbain@fs.fed.us. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: An SEIS is needed to update certain elements of the analysis and correct deficiencies identified in the 2005 Invasive Plant Control Project Final Environmental Impact Statement and records of decision. The DSEIS will document the analysis of effects for the same range of alternatives as the 2005 final EIS. The proposed action, which includes the use of herbicides to control invasive species, remains the preferred alternative. The Forest Supervisors of the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests are the responsible officials. Each responsible FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
