Abstract: This Information Collection Request (ICR) seeks authorization for tribes to demonstrate their eligibility to be treated in the same manner as states under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and to submit applications to implement a CAA program. This ICR extends the collection period of information for determining eligibility, which expires August 31, 2014. The ICR maintains the estimates of burden costs for tribes in completing a CAA application. The program regulation provides for Indian tribes, if they so choose, to assume responsibility for the development and implementation of CAA programs. The regulation, Indian Tribes: Air Quality Planning and Management (Tribal Authority Rule [TAR] 40 CFR parts 9, 35, 49, 50 and 81) sets forth how tribes may seek authority to implement their own air quality planning and management programs. The rule establishes: (1) Which CAA provisions Indian tribes may seek authority to implement, (2) what requirements the tribes must meet when seeking such authorization, and (3) what Federal financial assistance may be available to help tribes establish and manage their air quality programs. The TAR provides tribes the authority to administer air quality programs over all air resources, including non-Indian owned fee lands, within the exterior boundaries of a reservation and other areas over which the tribe can demonstrate jurisdiction. An Indian tribe that takes responsibility for a CAA program would essentially be treated in the same way as a state would be treated for that program. Respondents/affected entities: States, locals, Indian tribes. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:40 Mar 26, 2014 Jkt 232001 Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary, required to obtain or retain a benefit (Tribal Authority Rule [TAR] 40 CFR parts 9, 35, 49, 50 and 81). Estimated number of respondents: 8. Frequency of response: One time applications. Total estimated burden: 320 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $18,896.00 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is no change of hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. Dated: March 20, 2014.

    Abstract: This Information Collection Request (ICR) seeks 
authorization for tribes to demonstrate their eligibility to be treated 
in the same manner as states under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and to 
submit applications to implement a CAA program. This ICR extends the 
collection period of information for determining eligibility, which 
expires August 31, 2014. The ICR maintains the estimates of burden 
costs for tribes in completing a CAA application.
    The program regulation provides for Indian tribes, if they so 
choose, to assume responsibility for the development and implementation 
of CAA programs. The regulation, Indian Tribes: Air Quality Planning 
and Management (Tribal Authority Rule [TAR] 40 CFR parts 9, 35, 49, 50 
and 81) sets forth how tribes may seek authority to implement their own 
air quality planning and management programs. The rule establishes: (1) 
Which CAA provisions Indian tribes may seek authority to implement, (2) 
what requirements the tribes must meet when seeking such authorization, 
and (3) what Federal financial assistance may be available to help 
tribes establish and manage their air quality programs. The TAR 
provides tribes the authority to administer air quality programs over 
all air resources, including non-Indian owned fee lands, within the 
exterior boundaries of a reservation and other areas over which the 
tribe can demonstrate jurisdiction. An Indian tribe that takes 
responsibility for a CAA program would essentially be treated in the 
same way as a state would be treated for that program.
    Respondents/affected entities: States, locals, Indian tribes.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Voluntary, required to obtain 
or retain a benefit (Tribal Authority Rule [TAR] 40 CFR parts 9, 35, 
49, 50 and 81).
    Estimated number of respondents: 8.
    Frequency of response: One time applications.
    Total estimated burden: 320 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $18,896.00 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is no change of hours in the total 
estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by 
OMB.
