SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Final EIS/GMP responds to, and incorporates agency and public comments received on the Draft EIS, which was available for public review from September 9, 2011, through December 9, 2011. A total of four public meetings were held on October 18, 2011, and November 8, 2011, at the Naval Live Oaks Visitor Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, and on October 20, 2011, and November 10, 2011, at the Davis Bayou Visitor Center in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. A total of 181 comments were received. The NPS responses to substantive agency and public comments are provided in Chapter 5 of the Final EIS/GMP, Consultation and Coordination section. The Final EIS/GMP evaluates four alternatives for managing use and development of the National Seashore: • Alternative 1, the No Action alternative, represents the continuation of current management action and direction into the future. • Alternative 2 would reduce the level of infrastructure rebuilt on the barrier islands and allow natural processes to predominate. • Alternative 3 is the NPS Preferred Alternative. Alternative 3 would VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Jul 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 enhance visitor education, research, and resource protection opportunities. The seashore would be managed as an outdoor classroom for exploring the natural and human history of the Gulf of Mexico’s barrier islands and coastal environments. Interpretive programs would focus on illustrating how barrier islands act as protectors of the mainland coastline, and the part these islands have played in the last 5,000 years of historic human occupation. • Alternative 4 would expand and diversify visitor opportunities throughout the seashore by leveraging additional partnerships. When approved, the plan will guide the management of the National Seashore over the next 20+ years.

Background: Coal mine operators desiring to be self-insurers are required by law (30 U.S.C. 933 BL) to produce security by way of an indemnity bond, security deposit, a letter of credit, or 501(c)(21) trust. Once a company’s application to become self-insured is reviewed by the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) and it is determined the company is potentially eligible, an amount of security is determined to guarantee the payment of benefits required by the Act. The OWCP–1 form is executed by the self-insurer who agrees to abide by the Department’s rules and authorizes the Secretary, in the event of default, to file suit to secure payment from a bond underwriter or in the case of a Federal Reserve account, to sell the securities for the same purpose. A company cannot be authorized to self-insure until this requirement is met. Regulations establishing this requirement are at 20 CFR 726.110 for Black Lung. This information collection is currently approved for use through December 31, 2014. II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: * Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; * Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Jul 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 * Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and * Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.
