ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before February 18, 2014. SUMMARY: Direct all written comments to Jennifer Jessup, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at JJessup@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Chris Ellis, (843) 740–1195 or Chris.Ellis@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:45 Dec 16, 2013 Jkt 232001 I. Abstract This request is for a new information collection. The purpose of this survey is to better understand the factors that shape the tourism industry’s ability to adapt to or bounce back from external shocks such as natural disasters, climate change, and economic downturns (i.e. resiliency) in order to develop a set of indicators to measure the resiliency of coastal tourism. To help gather this information, NOAA will conduct a multi-round, iterative survey process based on the Delphi Method, which is a structured method for eliciting and combining expert opinion. The method requires indirect interaction among experts through a moderator. Experts make individual judgments, and these judgments are shared anonymously with the whole group. After viewing other experts’ judgments, each expert is then given the opportunity to revise his or her own judgments, and the process is repeated. Theoretically, the goal of the Delphi study is to reach a consensus after a few rounds. In reality this rarely happens; thus, at the end of the Delphi rounds, the experts’ final judgments are typically combined mathematically. NOAA will apply the Delphi Method to a multi-round survey of panels of individuals with experience and insight into tourism resiliency and/or the tourism industry in two geographic areas: (1) The Central North Carolina Coast, and (2) The San Francisco Bay Area (inner and outer coast). Data to be collected through the survey include factors that may prevent or facilitate tourism resiliency as well as ranking or rating of those factors; suggested resiliency indicators; relevance and usefulness of resiliency indicators; and levels of respondent certainty with regard to their responses. II. Method of Collection The survey will be provided to respondents in electronic format via email and responses will be submitted via email of electronic forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (new information collection). Affected Public: Non-profit institutions; Federal Government; State, local, or tribal government; Business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 40. Estimated Time per Response: Four hours per respondent as follows: Preliminary webinar, 1 hour; first round PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76285 survey, 1 hour; second round survey, 1 hour; and final webinar, 1 hour. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 160. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/reporting costs. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    An NOI to prepare a DEIS for Regulatory Amendment 17 was published 
in the Federal Register on December 4, 2013 (78 FR 72867) and requested 
public comment through January 3, 2014. The NOI announced that the 
Council will consider alternatives to modify existing marine protected 
areas (MPAs) implemented through Amendment 14 to the Fishery Management 
Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery in the South Atlantic Region (74 
FR 1621, January 13, 2009) and establish new MPAs within Regulatory 
Amendment 17. Through these proposed actions, the Council intends to 
further reduce bycatch mortality of speckled hind and warsaw grouper 
and increase protection to their deep-water habitat.
    In the NOI, NMFS announced scoping meeting dates, times, and 
locations that were scheduled to occur in January 2014. However, at its 
December 2013 meeting, the Council decided to continue development of 
Regulatory Amendment 17 but postpone the scoping meetings to a future 
date that is not yet known. The Council decided to delay the scoping 
meetings to allow the Council's Snapper-Grouper Advisory Panel to 
consider additional scientific information, such as the predicted 
effectiveness of the proposed MPAs and to provide MPA recommendations 
to the Council based on that information. In addition, the Council 
decided to hold public meetings on their snapper-grouper fishery 
visioning project before holding the Regulatory Amendment 17 scoping 
meetings. This would allow for an improved decision making process that 
incorporates the results of the Council's visioning project into the 
development of Regulatory Amendment 17. NMFS will announce, through a 
document published in the Federal Register, the exact dates, times, and 
locations of future scoping meetings for Regulatory Amendment 17.
