Agency Information Collection Activities: Application of Waiver of Passport and/or Visa, 48756-48757 [2014-19528]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 48756 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 159 / Monday, August 18, 2014 / Notices Changes to the underlying statute required amendments to 49 CFR part 1510, which were addressed through an Interim Final Rule (IFR) published in the Federal Register on June 20, 2014 (2014 IFR). See 79 FR 35462. The adjusted September 11th Security Fee now requires fees to be based on oneway trips rather than enplanements. The September 11th Security Fee is used to help defray the costs of providing Federal services, including civil aviation security services. This information collection requires air carriers to submit to TSA the amount of September 11th Security Fees an air carrier has imposed, collected, refunded, and remitted. Air carriers are required to retain this information for a three-year rolling period. For instance, air carriers must keep the information collected during fiscal year 2011 until the expiration of fiscal year 2014. TSA rules require air carriers to impose and collect the September 11th Security Fee and remit the amounts collected to TSA. See 49 CFR 1510.13. The regulation also requires air carriers to submit quarterly reports to TSA, indicating the amount of the fees (no more than $5.60 per one-way trip) imposed on, collected from, and refunded to passengers, and the amount remitted to TSA. See 49 CFR 1510.17. As initially promulgated in 2001, 49 CFR 1510.15 requires each air carrier that collects security service fees from more than 50,000 passengers annually have an independent certified public accountant perform an annual independent audit of its security service fee activities and accounts. TSA made a decision in 2003 to conduct its own audits of air carriers (under the provisions of 49 CFR 1510.11), mitigating the need for the annual independent audit requirements. To that end, the independent audit requirements were suspended on January 23, 2003. See 68 FR 3192. While the independent audit requirements have been suspended, air carriers are still required to establish and maintain an accounting system to account for the security service fees imposed, collected, refunded and remitted. See 49 CFR 1510.15(a). The Office of Management and Budget approved a revision to the collection to reflect changes resulting from basing the security service fee on enplanements to basing the fee on one-way trips. See ICR No. 201405–1652–001. That collection has been approved through January 2015. TSA is seeking renewal of this revised collection related to the requirement for air carriers to submit the quarterly reports to TSA, retain the information for a three-year rolling VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Aug 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 period, and provide to TSA upon request the information required for the quarterly reports or necessary for an independent audit. TSA estimates that 173 total respondent air carriers will each spend approximately 1 hour to prepare and submit each quarterly report. TSA estimates that all respondents will incur a total of 692 hours (173 carriers * 4 quarterly reports * 1 hour per report) to satisfy the quarterly reporting requirements annually. Should TSA reinstate the audit requirement, TSA estimates that 105 air carriers would be required to submit annual audits, which would require approximately 20 hours for preparation, for a total of 2,100 hours (105 carriers * 20 hours per audit) annually. TSA estimates that all respondent air carriers would incur 2,792 hours (692 hours for quarterly reports and 2,100 hours for audits) annually to satisfy the quarterly report and audit requirements. TSA estimates that the 173 air carriers will each incur an average cost of $363.96 annually to satisfy the quarterly reporting requirement. This estimate includes $291.00 in labor for preparation of each quarterly report (4 reports * $72.75 per hour, each quarterly report is estimated to take 1 hour to prepare), $71.00 in annual records storage related costs, and $1.96 for postage to submit the report (4 stamps at 49 cents each). TSA estimates an aggregate annual cost of $62,965.08 ($363.96 cost * 173 air carriers) for all air carriers to prepare, store, and submit quarterly reports and a cost of $188,895.24 for the three-year extension period requested. Should TSA reinstate the annual audit requirement, TSA estimates that 105 air carriers would be required to submit annual audits and would incur an average cost of $3,074.50 per audit. This estimate includes $3,000.00 in labor for preparation of each audit (20 hours per report * $150.00 per hour), $71.00 in annual records storage related costs, and $3.50 for postage to submit the report. TSA estimates an aggregate annual cost of $322,822.50 ($3,074.50 cost * 105 air carries) for all air carriers to prepare, store, and summit the annual audit should the requirement be reinstated and $968,647.50 for the threeyear extension period requested.

Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions of that Act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, pipeline right-of-way, or a right-of-use and easement. Section 1332(6) states that ‘‘operations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf should be conducted in a safe manner by well trained personnel using technology, precautions, and other techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, spillages, physical obstructions to other users of the waters or subsoil and seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the environment or to property or endanger life or health.’’ In addition to the general authority of OCS Lands Act, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably necessary to carry out FOGRMA’s provisions. While the majority of FOGRMA is directed to royalty collection and enforcement, some provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, section 108 of FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or other information. The Secretary has delegated some of the authority under FOGRMA to BSEE. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large.
