Abstract The Clean Air Act (Sections 169A, 169B, and 110(a)(2)(j) charges the NPS with an ‘‘affirmative responsibility to protect air quality related values (including visibility).’’ The NPS believes that the value of visibility changes should be represented in cost-benefit analyses performed regarding state and federal efforts that may affect visibility (including the Regional Haze Rule, 40 CFR Part 51). Updated estimates of visibility benefits are required because the studies conducted in the 1970s and 1980s do not reflect current baseline visibility conditions in national parks and wilderness areas. The NPS plans to conduct a nationwide stated preference survey to estimate the value of visibility changes in national parks and wilderness areas. Survey development and pre-testing have already been conducted under a previous IC (OMB Control Number 1024–0255). The purpose of this IC is to conduct the full, national survey. II. Data OMB Number: 1024–0255. Title: Visibility Valuation Survey. Type of Request: Reinstatement of OMB Control Number 1024–0225 for which the pilot study has been completed. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Respondent Obligation: Voluntary. Estimated Number of Respondents: 6,400 respondents. Estimated Time and frequency of Response: This is a one-time survey VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:14 Nov 12, 2013 Jkt 232001 estimated to take 25 minutes per respondent to complete.
