II. Background Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ‘‘Requests to Agreement States for Information.’’ The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on April 27, 2015 (80 FR 23306). 1. The title of the information collection: Requests to Agreement States for Information. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 Aug 20, 2015 Jkt 235001 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0029. 3. Type of submission: Revision. 4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Thirty-Seven Agreement States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with the NRC. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 421.8 responses. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 37. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 3,374.4 hours. 10. Abstract: The NRC is seeking to revise this information collection to be a plan for a generic collection of information. The need and practicality of the collection can be evaluated, but the details of the specific individual collections will not be known until a later time. The Agreement States will be asked on a one-time or as-needed basis to respond to a specific incident, to gather information on licensing and inspection practices or other technical information. The results of such information requests, which are authorized under Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act, will be utilized in part by the NRC in preparing responses to Congressional inquiries. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 17th day of August 2015. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Tremaine Donnell, NRC Clearance Officer, Office of Information Services.
