SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a new information collection. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Fisheries, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, proposes to collect very basic socioeconomic data from federallypermitted for-hire operators in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic fisheries, using a mail sample survey. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) does not systematically collect information on for-hire trip prices and trip costs in the Southeast. The population consists of those for-hire operators who possess a federal for-hire permit for dolphin-wahoo, coastal migratory pelagics, snapper-grouper, or reef fish species in the South Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico. Each year we will sample approximately a third of the population. The two-page survey will be designed to collect basic data on trip revenues and trip costs as well as other related information. These data are needed to conduct socioeconomic analyses in support of management of the for-hire fishing industry and to satisfy legal requirements. The data will be used to assess how fishermen will be impacted by and respond to federal regulation likely to be considered by fishery managers. II. Method of Collection The information will be collected on paper using a mail survey. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648-xxxx. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular (request for a new information collection). Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations; individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1000. Estimated Time per Response: 12 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 200 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/reporting costs.

Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 150,000. Abstract: This is a request to for an extension of the emergency clearance that was granted on this collection on June 5, 2015 to facilitate the continued collection of information from borrowers who believe they have cause to invoke the borrower defenses against repayment of a student loan as noted in regulation. The regulations for borrower defenses are specified in 34 CFR 685.206(c). The regulation states, in part, ‘‘(c)(1) [i]n any proceeding to collect on a Direct Loan, the borrower may assert as a defense against repayment, an act or omission of the school attended by the student that would give rise to a cause of action against the school under applicable State law.’’ Prior to 2015, the borrower defense identified above was rarely asserted by any borrowers and no specific methods of collecting information was defined or found necessary. These processes are being offered to aid in preserving borrowers rights and to meet the fiduciary responsibilities of the federal student loan programs. These collections will allow the Department of Education to inform borrowers and loan servicers of the information needed to review and adjudicate requests for relief under borrower defenses regulations.
