Comments regarding this information collection received by April 29, 2015 will be considered. Written comments should be addressed to: Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), New Executive Office Building, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20502. Commenters are encouraged to submit their comments to OMB via email to: OIRA_Submission@OMB.EOP.GOV or fax (202) 395–5806 and to Departmental Clearance Office, USDA, OCIO, Mail Stop 7602, Washington, DC 20250– 7602. Copies of the submission(s) may be obtained by calling (202) 720–8958.

Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service Title: Interstate Movement of Sheep and Goats; Recordkeeping for Approved Livestock Marketing Facilities and Slaughtering and Rendering Establishments. OMB Control Number: 0579–0258. Summary of Collection: The Animal Health Protection Act (AHPA) of 2002 is the primary Federal law governing the protection of animal health. The law gives the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to detect, control, or eradicate pests or diseases of livestock or poultry. Disease surveillance and prevention is the most effective method for maintaining a healthy animal population and enhancing the ability of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to help U.S. producers VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:57 Mar 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 compete in the world market of animal and animal product trade. The Veterinary Services (VS) program of APHIS is the unit responsible for carrying out the disease prevention mission. One of the APHIS disease eradication programs addresses scrapie. Scrapie is a progressive, degenerative, and eventually fatal disease affecting the central nervous system of sheep and goats. APHIS’ regulations 9 CFR 71.20 and 9 CFR 71.21 regarding the movement of livestock to require approved livestock auction market facilities, slaughtering establishments, and rendering establishments to maintain certain records for 5 years (2 years if the records regard only swine or poultry). APHIS is merging the information collection 0579–0342, Recordkeeping for Approved Livestock Facilities, Slaughtering, and Rendering Establishments, into this package 0579– 0258. These collections include the same regulations; therefore, it will be more efficient to have them consolidated into one collection. Collection 0579–0342 will be discontinued once this collection is approved. Need and Use of the Information: In order for APHIS’ Disease prevention program to be effective, its animal identification, recordkeeping, and other requirements must be carried out at livestock facilities that handle livestock and poultry moving in interstate commerce. The individual legally responsible for the day-to-day operation of the facility must execute an Approval of Livestock Facilities Agreement with APHIS. The information restricts the interstate movement of livestock within the United States to control diseases of concern and approve livestock facilities and slaughtering and rendering establishments that handle livestock moving in interstate commerce. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; State, Local or Tribal Government. Number of Respondents: 234. Frequency of Responses: Recordkeeping; Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 604. Ruth Brown, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.
