If such listings were not furnished by the Governor of each affected State, the Department would not be able to compute the PILT payments to units of general local government within the States in question. In fiscal year 2004, administrative authority for the PILT program was transferred from the Bureau of Land Management to the Office of the Secretary of the Department of the Interior. Applicable DOI regulations pertaining to the PILT program to be administered by the Office of the Secretary were published as a final rule in the Federal Register on December 7, 2004 (69 FR 70557). The Office of Budget, Office of the Secretary is now planning to extend the information collection approval authority in order to enable the Department of the Interior to continue to comply with the PILT Act. II. Data (1) Title: Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) Act, Statement of Federal Lands Payments, (43 CFR 44). OMB Control Number: 1093–0005. Current Expiration Date: 12/31/2015. Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Affected Entities: State Governments. Estimated annual number of responses: 45. Frequency of response: Annually. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. (2) Annual reporting and record keeping burden. Total Annual Reporting per Respondent: 46 hours. Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,070 hours. (3) Description of the need and use of the information: The statutorily required information is needed to compute payments due units of general local government under the PILT Act (31 U.S.C. 6901–6907). The Act requires the Governor of each State to furnish a statement as to amounts paid to units of general local government under 12 revenue-sharing statutes in the prior fiscal year. The FY 2016 budget proposes a one-year extension of the current PILT program, maintaining the existing formula for calculating payments to counties. That proposal is currently pending before Congress. This renewal authority is being done in anticipation of reauthorization by Congress.
