Annual U.S. emissions for the period from 1990 through 2014 are summarized and presented by source category and sector. The inventory contains estimates of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), perfluorocarbons (PFC), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) emissions. The inventory also includes estimates of carbon fluxes in U.S. agricultural and forest lands. The technical approach used in this report to estimate emissions and sinks for greenhouse gases is consistent with the methodologies recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and reported in a format consistent with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reporting guidelines. The Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990–2014 is the latest in a series of annual U.S. submissions to the Secretariat of the UNFCCC. The EPA requests recommendations for improving the overall quality of the inventory report to be finalized in April 2016, as well as subsequent inventory reports.

Title: ARMIS Operating Data Report. Report Number: FCC Report 43–08. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities. Number of Respondents and Responses: 53 respondents; 53 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 139 hours for those that have not applied for conditional forbearance; 35 hours for those that have received conditional forbearance. Frequency of Response: Annual reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 219 and 220 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Total Annual Burden: 2,271 hours. Total Annual Cost: No cost. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Ordinarily questions of a sensitive nature are not involved in the ARMIS Report 43–08. The Commission contends that areas in which detailed information is required are fully subject to regulation and the issue of data being regarded as sensitive will arise in special circumstances only. In such circumstances, respondents may request materials or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Needs and Uses: The information contained in FCC Report 43–08 has helped the Commission fulfill its regulatory responsibilities. Automated reporting of these data greatly enhances the Commission’s ability to process and analyze the extensive amounts of data PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provided in the reports. Automating and organizing data submitted to the Commission facilitate the timely and efficient analysis of revenue requirements, rates of return and price caps, and provide an improved basis for auditing and other oversight functions. Automated reporting also enhances the Commission’s ability to quantify the effects of policy proposals. The Commission has granted all carriers forbearance from many of the requirements of ARMIS 43–08 conditioned on approval of a data retention compliance plan and continued submission of certain ARMIS 43–08 data related to access lines in service to customers. Of the nine holding companies/affiliated carrier groups currently subject to ARMIS 43– 08, six have requested and received conditional forbearance. Of the remaining three holding companies/ affiliated carrier groups, one has requested conditional forbearance, and we anticipate that the other two may do so in the future.
