ODNI invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on Standard Form 714. The comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collection reflected in the Standard Form 714 meets the intent of section 1.3 (‘‘Financial Disclosure’’) of Executive Order 12968, as amended (‘‘Access to Classified Information’’); (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the proposed information collection for Standard Form 714; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected in the Standard Form 714; (d) ways, including the use of information technology, to minimize the burden of the collection of information on all respondents to the Standard Form 714; and (e) whether small businesses are affected by this collection. The comments that are submitted will be summarized and included in the ODNI request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Abstract: The National Security Act of 1947, as amended; section 3001 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004; and Executive Order 13467, ‘‘Reforming Processes Related to Suitability for Government Employment, Fitness for Contractor Employees, and Eligibility for Access to Classified National Security Information,’’ authorize the DNI, as the Security Executive Agent, to develop standard forms, including a standard financial disclosure form, that promotes uniformity and consistency in the implementation of the Government’s security programs. The Financial Disclosure Report contains information that is used to assist in making eligibility determinations for access to specifically designated classified information pursuant to Executive Order 12968, as amended, ‘‘Access to Classified Information.’’ The data may later be used as part of a review process to evaluate continued eligibility for access to such specifically designated classified information or as evidence in legal proceedings.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Science Foundation, as directed by the Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95–541), as amended by the Antarctic Science, Tourism and Conservation Act of 1996, has developed regulations for the establishment of a permit system for SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 various activities in Antarctica and designation of certain animals and certain geographic areas a requiring special protection. The regulations establish such a permit system to designate Antarctic Specially Protected Areas. Application Details 1. Applicant, Permit Application: 2015– 012 Dr. Diana H. Wall, Natural Resource Ecology Lab, Dept. 1499, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80526–1499 Activity for Which Permit Is Requested: ASPA entry, Import. Applicant wishes to enter Cape Royds ASPA 121 to collect soil samples and associated invertebrates as well as benthic algal mats and underlying soil. This project follows up on several past surveys of orthinogenic soils conducted in this ASPA which examined invertebrate genetic distribution, and also explores the influence of climate change on soil invertebrate populations. The algae sampling is to also follow up on previous surveys, to examine the temporal stability of lake algal communities in the region. Soil samples of approximately 600 grams each would be collected at up to 30 sites within the ASPA using sterile collecting techniques. For benthic algae, at 6 sites along the shore of Poly Lake, the applicant and team would use a sanitized 2cm copper coring apparatus to collect, by hand, 4 replicates of surface algal mats and 1–2 cm of underlying sediment. Samples would be transported back to the US for further study. Location: ASPA 121 Cape Royds. Dates: January 1, 2015–February 15, 2015. Nadene G.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is considering renewal of CBR’s Source Materials License SUA– 1534 for continued uranium production operations and ISR of uranium at the Crow Butte Project in Crawford, Nebraska. The applicant is proposing continued ISR operations and processing materials into yellowcake to be shipped for conversion. The NRC staff has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed license renewal, in accordance with the requirements in Part 51 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The NRC staff has also completed a safety evaluation of the proposed license renewal, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 40, and the results of the safety evaluation are documented in a separate Safety Evaluation Report (SER), ADAMS Accession No. ML14149A433. If approved, the NRC will issue the renewed license following the publication of this notice. The new license will also be made publicly available in ADAMS. II. Environmental Assessment Summary On November 27, 2007, CBR submitted an application to the NRC to extend the current NRC License SUA– 1534 for an additional 10 years of operation (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML073480266, ML073480272, ML073480274, and ML073480267). The proposed action would permit CBR to continue ISR operations and yellowcake production at the CBR facility. The ISR operations require an extraction step and a uranium recovery step. Extraction is accomplished by installing a series of injection wells through which barren lixiviant (a mixture of groundwater charged with oxygen and bicarbonate) is pumped into an underground geological formation containing uranium deposits (the ore body). Corresponding production wells and pumps promote flow through the ore body and allow for the collection of uranium-rich pregnant lixiviant. Uranium is removed from the pregnant lixiviant by ion exchange, and then from the ion exchange resin by elution. After the uranium is removed, the lixiviant can then be recharged and E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
