Abstract: As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the U.S. Congress included, as part of section 507, the requirements that each state establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Program to assist small businesses in complying with the Act. These programs are generally known as Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs (SBEAPs). EPA’s Small Business Ombudsman must oversee the overall 507 program and be able to provide the Congress with periodical reports on the effectiveness, difficulties encountered and other relevant information on the program. Each state will submit requested information to EPA for compilation and summarization. This collection of information is mandatory under Section 507(a), (d) and (e) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, Public Law 101–549, November 15, 1990. Information that is collected is aggregated and is not of a confidential nature. None of the information collected by this action results in/or requests sensitive information of any nature from the states. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: State and/or state appointed entities of the 507 program, usually college or university staff. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under Section 507(a), (d) and (e) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, Public Law 101–549, November 15, 1990. Estimated number of respondents: 53 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 2,120 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total estimated cost: $ 104,664 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. There is a possibility that the total estimated cost may increase slightly due to inflation prices and will be determined once final numbers are generated but generally speaking hours spent in responding to the data collection will not change.
