The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. 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. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR Chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/ or instrument, if applicable. Responses to the collection of information are required to obtain a benefit (40 CFR parts 9, 35, 49, 50 and 81).

There is no sensitive information required. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 40 hours per response. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Respondents/Affected Entities: States, locals, Indian tribes. Estimated Number of Respondents: 8. Frequency of Response: One-time application.
