Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities affected by this action are 11 coastal States with conditionally approved Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Programs and 1 coastal State that will submit its program for federal approval in 2014. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Estimated number of respondents: 12 States (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 1,500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $55,500 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 125 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is the result of progress that States which are not yet unconditionally approved have made that have resulted in the reduction in the number of conditions imposed on them by EPA and NOAA, offset by the addition of a new State coastal nonpoint program (Illinois), as well as the sunsetting of one State program in 2011 (Alaska).
