A day-use fee is not being charged on BLM-administered recreation sites within the SRMA. A fee collection station, including envelopes and a fee tube, would be located at the trailhead and day-use parking area adjacent to an existing interpretive kiosk that would display the fee schedule and supplementary rules. The fee receipt must be prominently displayed at each occupied site. Those holding the America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass (i.e., the Interagency Annual Pass, Interagency Senior Pass, Interagency Access Pass and Interagency Volunteer Pass), the National Parks Pass with golden eagle hologram and the Golden Eagle, Golden Age or Golden Access passports would be entitled to a fee reduction. The pass type and number would be required to be written on the fee envelope. The fee schedule and business plan are available at the Rawlins Field Office. Public comments submitted for this fee proposal, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review in their entirety after the 90-day comment period closes at the Rawlins Field Office during regular business hours, 7:45 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The proposal of an overnight camping fee at Corral Creek Campground was analyzed in the 2013 Plan Environmental Assessment (EA) (DOI– BLM–WY–030–2013–0094–EA). This EA included development of recreational infrastructure to meet current BLM fee site standards and proposed the pursuit of a fee program at Corral Creek Campground. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 6803(b).

Abstract The National Park Service (NPS) is requesting a one year extension for the Programmatic Review and Clearance Process for NPS-Sponsored Public Surveys (OMB Control Number 1024– 0224). The request to extend the current expiration date (August 31, 2014) for one year is for the purpose of revising the current Pool of Known Questions that serves as a primary component of this process. This request is also based upon requests from human dimensions and natural resource professionals that we update the current list of questions and topic areas that are more than 20 years old. This extension is needed to work collaboratively with other researchers in this field to increase the Pool of Known Questions usability as an effective tool in this process. During the extension we will continue to submit collections for FY15 (based upon the currently approved documents) and we will also host a series of workshops to facilitate the revision of the topic areas and questions.

the current expiration date (August 31, 2014) for one year is for the

a primary component of this process. This request is also based upon 
requests from human dimensions and natural resource professionals that

with other researchers in this field to increase the Pool of Known

III. Request for Comments

    On May 27, 2014, we published a Federal Register notice (79 FR 
30162) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. 
Public comments were solicited for 60 days ending July 28, 2014. We did 
not receive any public comments in response to that notice. In 
addition, individuals who had served as principal investigators of NPS-
sponsored public surveys in FY 2012-13 were informed that the 60-day 
Federal Register notice was published. However, we requested that 
several social scientists and natural resource researchers provide a 
review of the Pool of Known Questions. Several of the reviewers 
suggested that it is time to

[[Page 51604]]

revisit the entire list of questions because ``many are considered to 
be outdated or underused'' and ``there are other topics areas that 
should be included (e.g., interpretation and education)''. Based on 
these comments we are requesting an extension of this collection to 
consider the recommendations to update the Pool of Known Questions.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal 
identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
