(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: City, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies. Abstract: Under U.S. Code, Title 28, Section 534, Acquisition, Preservation, and Exchange of Identification Records; Appointment of Officials, June 11, 1930; Public Law 109–177 (H.R. 3199), March 9, 2006, USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005; Public Law110–457, Title II, Section 237(a), (b), December 23, 2008, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act of 2008, and Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act, April 28, 2009, this collection requests Incident data from city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies in order for the FBI UCR Program to serve as the national clearinghouse for the collection and dissemination of incident data and to publish these statistics in Crime in the United States, Hate Crime Statistics, and Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted. NIBRS is an incidentbased reporting system in which law enforcement collects data on each crime occurrence. Designed to be generated as a byproduct of local, state, and federal automated records systems, currently, the NIBRS collects data on each incident and arrest within 23 crime categories made up of 49 specific crimes called Group A offenses. For each of the offenses coming to the attention of law enforcement, various facts about the crime are collected. In addition to the Group A offenses, there are 10 Group B offense categories for which only arrest data are reported. The most significant difference between NIBRS and the traditional Summary Reporting System (SRS) is the degree of detail in reporting. In reporting data via the traditional SRS, law enforcement agencies tally the occurrences of eight Part I crimes. NIBRS is capable of producing more detailed, accurate, and meaningful data because data are collected about when and where crime takes place, what form it takes, and the characteristics of its victims and perpetrators. Although most of the general concepts for collecting, scoring, and reporting UCR data in the SRS apply in the NIBRS, such as jurisdictional rules, there are some important differences in the two systems. The most notable differences that give the NIBRS an advantage over the SRS are: No Hierarchy Rule, in a multiple-offense incident NIBRS reports every offense occurring during the incident where SRS would report just VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Dec 05, 2013 Jkt 232001 the most serious offense and the lowerlisted offense would not be reported; NIBRS provides revised, expanded, and new offense definitions; NIBRS provides more specificity in reporting offenses, using NIBRS offense and arrest data for 23 Group A offense categories can be reported while in the SRS eight Part I offenses can be reported; NIBRS can distinguish between attempted and completed Group A crimes; NIBRS also provides crimes against society while the SRS does not; the victim-to-offender data, circumstance reporting, drug related offenses, offenders suspected use of drugs, and computer crime is expanded in NIBRS; the NIBRS update reports are directly tied to the original incident submitted. The Group A offense categories include arson, assault offenses, bribery, burglary/breaking and entering, counterfeiting/forgery, destruction/damage/vandalism of property, drug/narcotic offenses, embezzlement, extortion/blackmail, fraud offenses, gambling offenses, homicide offenses, human trafficking, kidnapping/abduction, larceny/theft offenses, motor vehicle theft, pornography/obscene material, prostitution offenses, robbery, sex offenses, sex offenses/nonforcible, stolen property offenses, and weapon law violations. The Group B offense categories include bad checks, curfew/ loitering/vagrancy violations, disorderly conduct, DUI, drunkenness, family offenses/nonviolent, liquor law violations, peeping tom, trespass of real property, and all other offenses. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are approximately 6,038 law enforcement agencies. The amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond is two hours monthly which totals to an annual hour burden of 24 hours. The 2 hours to respond is the time it takes for the agencies records management system (RMS) to download the NIBRS and send to the FBI. By design, law enforcement agencies generate NIBRS data as a byproduct of their RMS. Therefore, a law enforcement agency builds its system to suit its own individual needs, including all of the information required for administration and operation; then forwards only the data required by the NIBRS to participate in the FBI UCR Program. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with this collection: There are approximately 144,912 hours, annual burden, associated with this information collection. The total number of respondents is 6,038 with a total annual PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 hour burden of 24 hours, (6,038 × 24 = 144,912 total annual hours).

II. Further Information The NRC is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. This regulatory guide provides a format that the NRC considers acceptable for submitting the information for license applications to store spent nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste, and/or reactor-related Greater than Class C (GTCC) waste.

The draft regulatory guide, entitled ‘‘Standard Format and Content for a License Application for an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation or a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–3042. The DG–3042 is proposed revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 3.50, dated September 1989. This revision to RG 3.50 (Revision 2) was issued to conform to the format and content requirements in 10 CFR part 72, which has been revised several times since Revision 1 was issued, and to update guidance on electronic submissions of applications. In addition, Revision 2 includes editorial changes to improve clarity. II. Backfitting and Issue Finality This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, will provide guidance on one possible means for meeting NRC’s regulatory requirements in 10 CFR 72.22–34 regarding the format and content for license applications for an ISFSI or MRS. This draft regulatory guide may be applied to license applications for ISFSIs and MRSs docketed by the NRC as of the date of issuance of the final regulatory guide, as well as future applications for such licenses submitted after the issuance of the regulatory guide. This regulatory guide does not apply to current license applications for ISFSIs, and there are no current applications for an MRS. This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 72.62(a). The regulatory guide applies only to future applicants, who are not within the scope of entities protected by § 72.62. In addition, the subject matter of this regulatory guide does not concern matters dealing with either the structures, systems and components of an ISFSI or MRS, or the procedures or organization for operating an ISFSI or MRS. Therefore, the matters addressed in this draft regulatory guide are not within the scope of the backfitting provisions in § 72.62(a)(1) or (2). This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, would not apply to entities E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1 73568 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 235 / Friday, December 6, 2013 / Notices protected by issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52 with respect to the matters addressed in this regulatory guide.

Accordingly, the NRC concludes that this draft regulatory guide, if finalized, would not be inconsistent with any part 52 issue finality provision.

II. Further Information

    The NRC is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the NRC's 
``Regulatory Guide'' series. This series was developed to describe and 
make available to the public such information as methods that are 
acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the 
NRC's regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating 
specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff 
needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
    This regulatory guide provides a format that the NRC considers 
acceptable for submitting the information for license applications to 
store spent nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste, and/or reactor-
related Greater than Class C (GTCC) waste. Part 72 of Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Licensing Requirements for the 
Independent Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel, High-Level Radioactive 
Waste, and Reactor-Related Greater Than Class C Waste'' (Ref. 1), 
Subpart B, ``License Application, Form, and Contents,'' specifies the 
information that must be in an application for a license to store spent 
nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste, and/or power-reactor-
related GTCC waste in an independent spent fuel storage installation 
(ISFSI) or to store spent nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste, 
and GTCC waste in a monitored retrievable storage (MRS) facility.
    The draft regulatory guide, entitled ``Standard Format and Content 
for a License Application for an Independent Spent Fuel Storage 
Installation or a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility,'' is 
temporarily identified by its task number, DG-3042. The DG-3042 is 
proposed revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 3.50, dated September 1989.
    This revision to RG 3.50 (Revision 2) was issued to conform to the 
format and content requirements in 10 CFR part 72, which has been 
revised several times since Revision 1 was issued, and to update 
guidance on electronic submissions of applications. In addition, 
Revision 2 includes editorial changes to improve clarity.

II. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, will provide guidance on 
one possible means for meeting NRC's regulatory requirements in 10 CFR 
72.22-34 regarding the format and content for license applications for 
an ISFSI or MRS. This draft regulatory guide may be applied to license 
applications for ISFSIs and MRSs docketed by the NRC as of the date of 
issuance of the final regulatory guide, as well as future applications 
for such licenses submitted after the issuance of the regulatory guide. 
This regulatory guide does not apply to current license applications 
for ISFSIs, and there are no current applications for an MRS.
    This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, would not constitute 
backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 72.62(a). The regulatory guide applies 
only to future applicants, who are not within the scope of entities 
protected by Sec.  72.62. In addition, the subject matter of this 
regulatory guide does not concern matters dealing with either the 
structures, systems and components of an ISFSI or MRS, or the 
procedures or organization for operating an ISFSI or MRS. Therefore, 
the matters addressed in this draft regulatory guide are not within the 
scope of the backfitting provisions in Sec.  72.62(a)(1) or (2).
    This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, would not apply to 
entities

[[Page 73568]]

protected by issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52 with respect 
to the matters addressed in this regulatory guide. Although part 52 
combined license applicants and holders may apply for specific ISFSI 
licenses, the guidance in this regulatory guide is directed to ISFSI 
applicants and does not make a distinction between, and presents no 
more onerous guidance for, ISFSI applicants who are also combined 
license applicants or holders, than for ISFSI applicants who are not 
combined license applicants and holders.
    Accordingly, the NRC concludes that this draft regulatory guide, if 
finalized, would not be inconsistent with any part 52 issue finality 
provision.
