This notice also gives an opportunity for the public to comment and to request a public meeting on the withdrawal extension application. DATES: Comments and public meeting requests must be received by December 1, 2015. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the Idaho State Director, BLM, 1387 S. Vinnell Way, Boise, Idaho 83709. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Cartwright, BLM Idaho State Office 208– 373–3885 or Sherry Stokes-Wood, Lands, USFS Intermountain Regional Office 801–625–5800. Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1– 800–877–8339 to contact either of the above individuals. The FIRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The USFS has filed an application requesting that the Secretary of the Interior extend the withdrawal created by PLO No. 7306 for an additional 20-year term, subject to valid existing rights. PLO No. 7306 (63 FR 109 (1998)) withdrew 3,805.87 acres of National Forest System Land in the Sawtooth National Forest, Cassia County, Idaho from location and entry under the United States mining laws, but not from the general land laws or leasing under the mineral leasing laws. The purpose of the requested withdrawal extension is to continue to protect the Howell Canyon Recreation Complex investments made by the USFS and its permittees, and to preserve a Research Natural Area. The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement would not adequately protect the land from nondiscretionary uses, which could result in a permanent loss of significant values and capital investments. There are no suitable alternative sites with equal or greater benefit to the government. The USFS would not need to acquire water rights to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension. Records related to the application may be examined by contacting Jeff Cartwright at the above address or by phone number. For a period until December 1, 2015, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the withdrawal extension application may present their VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:04 Sep 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 views in writing to the BLM State Director at the ADDRESS indicated above.

Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Notice is hereby given that an opportunity for a public meeting is afforded in connection with the withdrawal extension application. All interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of being heard on the withdrawal extension application must submit a written request to the BLM State Director at the ADDRESS indicated above by December 1, 2015. Upon determination by the authorized officer that a public meeting will be held, a notice of the time and place will be published in the Federal Register and a newspaper having a general circulation in the vicinity of the land at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting. The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2310.4. James M. Fincher, Chief, Branch of Lands, Minerals and Water Rights, Resource Services.

To comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is notifying the public that we have submitted to OMB an information collection request (ICR) to renew approval of the paperwork requirements SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart B, Plans and Information. OMB Control Number: 1014–0024. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1334), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations necessary for the administration of the leasing provisions of that act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-use and easement, or unit. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1 53190 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 170 / Wednesday, September 2, 2015 / Notices coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. In addition to the general rulemaking authority of the OCSLA at 43 U.S.C. 1334, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably necessary to carry out FOGRMA’s provisions. While the majority of FOGRMA is directed to royalty collection and enforcement, some provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, section 108 of FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or other information. Because the Secretary has delegated some of the authority under FOGRMA to BSEE, 30 U.S.C. 1751 is included as additional authority for these requirements. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large. Deepwater Operations Plans are subject to cost recovery, and BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this request. Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR part 250, subpart B, and are among those delegated to BSEE. This request also covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. Responses are mandatory or are required to obtain or retain a benefit. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSEE protects information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and DOI’s implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection, 30 CFR part 252, OCS Oil and Gas Information Program. We collect the information required under this Subpart for: § 250.282—Post-Approval Requirements for the EP, DPP, and DOCD: While the information is submitted to BOEM, BSEE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected under this section of subpart B to verify that an ongoing/completed OCS operation is/was conducted in compliance with established environmental standards placed on the activity. §§ 250.286–295—Deepwater Operations Plan (DWOP): BSEE analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected under this section of subpart B to ensure that planned operations are safe; will not adversely affect the marine, coastal, or human environment; and will conserve the resources of the OCS. We use the information to make an informed decision on whether to approve the proposed deepwater operations plans (DWOPs), or whether modifications are necessary without the analysis and evaluation of the required information. Frequency: On occasion and as required by regulation. Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise OCS Federal oil, gas, or sulphur lessees and/or operators. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 37,084 hours. The following chart details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden.

We have not identified any other non-hour cost burdens associated with this collection of information. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.,) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.,) requires each agency ‘‘. . . to provide notice . . . and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information . . .’’ Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the collection is necessary or useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on May 22, 2015, we published a Federal Register notice (80 FR 29736) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, § 250.199 provides the OMB VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:04 Sep 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 Control Number for the information collection requirements imposed by the 30 CFR part 250, subpart B regulations. The regulation also informs the public that they may comment at any time on the collections of information and provides the address to which they should send comments. We received one comment in response to the Federal Register notice. The comment from a private citizen pertained to why weren’t plans submitted electronically thereby reducing the paperwork burden and would also assist in retention of such plans. BSEE’s response: Since the split, some plans have been transferred to BOEM under 30 CFR part 550 and some to BSEE. As to the plans that are submitted to BSEE, we are developing requirements for a new ePlans and ePermits (electronic submittal) project that does include Deepwater Operations Plans (DWOPs) that should start in development by FY 2016. Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Dated: August 5, 2015. Robert W. Middleton, Deputy Chief, Office of Offshore Regulatory Programs.

Sina, M.D.; Decision and Order On May 15, 2015, the thenAdministrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration issued the attached order. Therein, based on her review of the record, the then-Administrator concluded that, in the event Respondent presented evidence that he has continued to comply with his Professionals Resource Network (PRN) contract and has passed all drug tests since the closing of the record, he is entitled to be registered subject to the extensive conditions set forth in her order. The then-Administrator thus ordered Respondent to provide such evidence. In response to the order, Respondent provided his drug test results, all of which have been negative. Respondent did not, however, provide evidence of his compliance with the other terms of his PRN contract. Accordingly, on July 27, 2015, I issued an order directing Respondent to ‘‘provide a sworn letter from the PRN attesting to his continued compliance with his PRN contract.’’ Order of the Administrator, at 1 (July 27, 2015). Respondent has now complied and submitted a notarized letter from Penelope P. Ziegler, M.D., the PRN’s Medical Director, attesting that he has remained fully compliant with his PRN contract. I therefore conclude that Respondent has met the requirements for obtaining a new registration as set E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 30 CFR 250, Subpart B, Plans and Information.
    OMB Control Number: 1014-0024.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended 
(43 U.S.C. 1334), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe 
rules and regulations necessary for the administration of the leasing 
provisions of that act related to mineral resources on the OCS. Such 
rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a 
lease, right-of-use and easement, or unit. Operations on the OCS must 
preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a 
manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources 
available to meet the Nation's energy needs as rapidly as possible; to 
balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, 
marine, and

[[Page 53190]]

coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return 
on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free 
enterprise competition.
    In addition to the general rulemaking authority of the OCSLA at 43 
U.S.C. 1334, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty 
Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the 
Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably 
necessary to carry out FOGRMA's provisions. While the majority of 
FOGRMA is directed to royalty collection and enforcement, some 
provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, section 108 of 
FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect 
lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance 
with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 
1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure 
to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or 
submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or 
other information. Because the Secretary has delegated some of the 
authority under FOGRMA to BSEE, 30 U.S.C. 1751 is included as 
additional authority for these requirements.
    The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the 
Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104-133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 
1996), and OMB Circular A-25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the 
full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the 
Department of the Interior's implementing policy, the Bureau of Safety 
and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is required to charge fees for 
services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable 
non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public

BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this request.
    Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR 
part 250, subpart B, and are among those delegated to BSEE. This 
request also covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) 
that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance 
on some aspects of our regulations.
    Responses are mandatory or are required to obtain or retain a 
benefit. No questions of a sensitive nature are asked. BSEE protects 
information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act 
(5 U.S.C. 552) and DOI's implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and 
under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, Data and information to be made 
available to the public or for limited inspection, 30 CFR part 252, OCS 
Oil and Gas Information Program.
    We collect the information required under this Subpart for:
    Sec.  250.282--Post-Approval Requirements for the EP, DPP, and 
DOCD: While the information is submitted to BOEM, BSEE analyzes and 
evaluates the information and data collected under this section of 
subpart B to verify that an ongoing/completed OCS operation is/was 
conducted in compliance with established environmental standards placed 
on the activity.
    Sec. Sec.  250.286-295--Deepwater Operations Plan (DWOP): BSEE 
analyzes and evaluates the information and data collected under this 
section of subpart B to ensure that planned operations are safe; will 
not adversely affect the marine, coastal, or human environment; and 
will conserve the resources of the OCS. We use the information to make 
an informed decision on whether to approve the proposed deepwater 
operations plans (DWOPs), or whether modifications are necessary 
without the analysis and evaluation of the required information.
    Frequency: On occasion and as required by regulation.
    Description of Respondents: Potential respondents comprise OCS

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 37,084 
hours. The following chart details the individual components and 
estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that 
respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified one non-hour cost associated with this IC; DWOP's ($3,599) 
under Sec.  250.292, and estimate that the annual total non-hour cost 
burden is $39,589. We have not identified any other non-hour cost 
burdens associated with this collection of information.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.,) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.
    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.,) requires each agency ``. . . to provide notice . . . and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information . . .'' Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
collection is necessary or useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of 
technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on May 22, 2015, we 
published a Federal Register notice (80 FR 29736) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, Sec.  250.199 provides the 
OMB Control Number for the information collection requirements imposed 
by the 30 CFR part 250, subpart B regulations. The regulation also 
informs the public that they may comment at any time on the collections 
of information and provides the address to which they should send 
comments. We received one comment in response to the Federal Register 
notice. The comment from a private citizen pertained to why weren't 
plans submitted electronically thereby reducing the paperwork burden 
and would also assist in retention of such plans. BSEE's response: 
Since the split, some plans have been transferred to BOEM under 30 CFR 
part 550 and some to BSEE. As to the plans that are submitted to BSEE, 
we are developing requirements for a new ePlans and ePermits 
(electronic submittal) project that does include Deepwater Operations 
Plans (DWOPs) that should start in development by FY 2016.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information 
in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--
including your personal identifying information--may be made publicly 
available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold 
your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.

    Dated: August 5, 2015.
Robert W. Middleton,
Deputy Chief, Office of Offshore Regulatory Programs.
