Mailing address: Department of The Interior, Office of Natural Resources Revenue, P.O. Box 25165, MS 61211B, Denver, Colorado 80225–0165. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 26, 2008, ONRR published a final rule titled ‘‘Reporting Amendments’’ (73 FR 15885), with an effective date of April 25, 2008. This rule revised 30 CFR 1218.41 to comply with the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Simplification and Fairness Act of 1996. The regulations authorize ONRR to assess payors for failure to submit payments of the same amount as the royalty or bill document, or to provide adequate information. Section 1218.41(f) requires ONRR to publish the assessment amount and the effective date in the Federal Register. ONRR bases the amount of the assessment on ONRR’s cost experience with improper payment and identification. ONRR increased the assessment due to Federal employee pay raises and minor adjustments in correction time. The assessment allows ONRR to recover the associated costs and provides industry with incentives to improve the efficiency of payment processing. Dated: September 8, 2014. Gregory J. Gould, Director for Office of Natural Resources Revenue. [FR Doc. 2014–22451 Filed 9–19–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–T2–P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notice of Lodging of Proposed Consent Decree Under the Clean Air Act On September 16, 2014, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Consumers Energy Company., Civil Case. No. 14–13580 (E.D. Mich.). In this civil enforcement action under the federal Clean Air Act (‘‘Act’’), the United States alleges that Consumers Energy Co. (‘‘Defendant’’), failed to comply with certain requirements of the Act intended to protect air quality at five Michigan power plants: The J.H. Campbell Plant in West Olive, Michigan; the B.C. Cobb Plant in Muskegon, Michigan; the D.E. Karn Plant in Essexville, Michigan; and the J.C. Weadock Plant in Essexville, Michigan. The complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for violations of the Act’s Prevention of Significant Deterioration (‘‘PSD’’) VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Sep 19, 2014 Jkt 232001 provisions, 42 U.S.C. 7470–92, the Act’s Title V permit provisions (‘‘Title V’’), 42 U.S.C. 7661a–76661f, and certain visible air pollutant (‘‘opacity’’) and particulate matter (‘‘PM’’) limitations contained in Defendant’s Title V permits and as set forth in various implementing regulations. The complaint alleges that Defendant failed to obtain appropriate permits and failed to install and operate required pollution control devices to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide (‘‘SO2’’) and/or nitrogen oxides (‘‘NOX’’) at the Campbell, Cobb, Karn, and Weadock plants, and that Defendant has operated certain units at the plants while exceeding opacity and PM limitations. The proposed Consent Decree would resolve violations for certain provisions of the Act at the Campbell, Cobb, Karn, and Weadock plants, as well as the Whiting Plant in Luna Pier, Michigan, through December 31, 2017, and would require the Defendant to reduce harmful SO2, NOX, and PM emissions, at the five power plants. The emission reductions would be achieved through emission control requirements and limitations specified by the proposed consent decree, including installation and operation of pollution controls; retirement or refueling of certain generating units; and annual emission caps at the power plants. The Defendant will also spend $7.7 million to fund environmental mitigation projects that will further reduce emissions and benefit communities adversely affected by the pollution from the five plants, and pay a civil penalty of $2.75 million. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the proposed Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and should refer to United States v. Consumers Energy Company., Civil Case.

A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1205–0268. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1

agencies requesting name-based background checks of the FBI's Central 
Records System through the National Name Check Program for noncriminal 
justice purposes. The total resource costs associated with providing 
these name check services have been calculated to ensure full 
reimbursement to the FBI.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority in Public Law 101-
515 as amended, the FBI has established user fees for federal agencies 
requesting noncriminal name-based background checks of the Central 
Records System (CRS) through the National Name Check Program (NNCP) of 
the Records Management Division (RMD). The regulations governing the 
revision of these user fees are set out at 28 CFR 20.31(e) and (f). In

purposes and publish any resulting fee adjustments in the Federal 
Register. Accordingly, the FBI conducted a fee study using FY 2012 cost 
information applied to the FY 2014 name check projections to assess the 
current cost to the FBI of processing name checks. The methodology for 
this new fee study is the same as the FBI has used previously, 
employing the Activity Based Cost (ABC) accounting method detailed in 
the Final Rule establishing the process for setting fees (75 FR 24796 
(May 6, 2010)). The ABC methodology is consistent with widely accepted 
accounting principles in addition to the provisions of 31 9701 and 
other applicable federal law. The fee study identified all direct and 
indirect costs associated with the name-based background checks 
incurred by the FBI in fiscal year 2012.
    These costs were analyzed by the ABC model to project the total 
reimbursable costs, by fee category, for fiscal year 2014. The fee 
study recommended several adjustments to the current user fees, which 
have been in effect since March 4, 2011. The following table details 
the fee amounts for federal agencies requesting name-based background 
checks of the FBI's CRS through the NNCP for noncriminal justice 
purposes.

    The higher Batch Fee is based on the increase of certain direct 
costs, such as those related to information technology acquisition. 
Manual and Expedited Fees, which only accounted for .027% of all 
reimbursable submissions in FY 2013, increased due to fixed costs 
remaining constant while submissions decreased.
