Abstract: The purpose of this information collection request is to assist the EPA in selecting federal advisory committee members who will be appointed as Special Government Employees (SGEs), mostly to the EPA’s scientific and technical committees. To select SGE members as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, the Agency needs to evaluate potential conflicts of interest before a candidate is hired as an SGE and appointed as a member to a committee. Agency officials developed the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Special Government Employees Serving on Federal Advisory Committees at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,’’ also referred to as Form 3110–48, for greater inclusion of DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information to discover any potential conflicts of interest as recommended by the Government Accountability Office. Form numbers: EPA Form 3110–48. Respondents/affected entities: Candidates for appointment to serve as SGEs on EPA federal advisory committees. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory in order to serve as a SGE on an EPA federal advisory committee (5 CFR 2634.903). Estimated number of respondents: 500 (total). Frequency of response: Once, Annually, On occasion. Total estimated burden: 500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $56,000 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 250 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This change is due to an increase in the estimated number of respondents. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: The EPA requires the information requested in this ICR to perform its proper function to ensure the implementation of the 2008 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in areas of the country that are designated nonattainment for the standards. This ICR pertains to attainment planning efforts by states for VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:48 Jan 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 areas designated nonattainment for the ozone NAAQS revised on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 16436). Those planning efforts must meet the statutory requirements of CAA sections 172, 182 and 184, and the regulatory requirements established in the ‘‘Implementation of the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone: State Implementation Plan (SIP) Requirements; Final Rule’’ (80 FR 12264). The EPA has since revised the ozone NAAQS on October 1, 2015 (80 FR 65292), and any burden associated with attainment planning for areas designated nonattainment for the 2015 ozone NAAQS will be covered through a separate ICR process. The information covered by this ICR includes, but is not limited to, state submissions of attainment demonstrations, reasonable further progress plans, and reasonably available control technology determinations. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/Affected Entities: State and local governments. Respondent’s Obligation To Respond: Mandatory (see Clean Air Act sections 172, 182 and 184). Estimated Number of Respondents: 17 (total). Frequency of Response: Annual. Total Estimated Burden: 34,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total Estimated Cost: $2,311,000 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 6,000 annual labor hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the activities expected to occur during the period from February 1, 2018, to January 31, 2021, which are similar in nature, but not identical, to the SIP planning and submission activities in the original ICR period. Factors contributing to the variation include the stage of implementation that various nonattainment areas are in for the 2008 ozone NAAQS, and states’ relative success in attaining the 2008 ozone NAAQS during the original ICR period. More specifically, the reasons the total estimated burden in this ICR renewal is different than the total estimated burden hours currently approved by OMB, include: • Many areas that have successfully attained the 2008 ozone NAAQS are now eligible to request redesignation to attainment. • As many as 13 nonattainment areas are potentially subject to the additional air quality planning and emissions control requirements of the ‘‘Serious’’ PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2151 classification because they may not attain the 2008 NAAQS by the Moderate area attainment deadline of July 20, 2018. For these areas, states will need to take further steps to ensure air quality standards are achieved by the next attainment deadline. • The estimates have been calculated using 2017 dollars. The adjustments to the cost assumptions are summarized in sections 6(b) and 6(c) of the supporting statement, and fully detailed in a background spreadsheet titled, ‘‘Estimate of Burden for 2008 O3 SIP Rule 1st Renewal ICR Worksheet, 2017.’’ This spreadsheet is available in the docket.

    Abstract: The EPA requires the information requested in this ICR to 
perform its proper function to ensure the implementation of the 2008 
ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in areas of the 
country that are designated nonattainment for the standards. This ICR 
pertains to attainment planning efforts by states for areas designated 
nonattainment for the ozone NAAQS revised on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 
16436). Those planning efforts must meet the statutory requirements of 
CAA sections 172, 182 and 184, and the regulatory requirements 
established in the ``Implementation of the 2008 National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards for Ozone: State Implementation Plan (SIP) 
Requirements; Final Rule'' (80 FR 12264). The EPA has since revised the 
ozone NAAQS on October 1, 2015 (80 FR 65292), and any burden associated 
with attainment planning for areas designated nonattainment for the 
2015 ozone NAAQS will be covered through a separate ICR process. The 
information covered by this ICR includes, but is not limited to, state 
submissions of attainment demonstrations, reasonable further progress 
plans, and reasonably available control technology determinations.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: State and local governments.
    Respondent's Obligation To Respond: Mandatory (see Clean Air Act 
sections 172, 182 and 184).
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 17 (total).
    Frequency of Response: Annual.
    Total Estimated Burden: 34,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total Estimated Cost: $2,311,000 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation and maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 6,000 annual labor 
hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR 
currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the activities 
expected to occur during the period from February 1, 2018, to January 
31, 2021, which are similar in nature, but not identical, to the SIP 
planning and submission activities in the original ICR period. Factors 
contributing to the variation include the stage of implementation that 
various nonattainment areas are in for the 2008 ozone NAAQS, and 
states' relative success in attaining the 2008 ozone NAAQS during the 
original ICR period. More specifically, the reasons the total estimated 
burden in this ICR renewal is different than the total estimated burden 
hours currently approved by OMB, include:
     Many areas that have successfully attained the 2008 ozone 
NAAQS are now eligible to request redesignation to attainment.
     As many as 13 nonattainment areas are potentially subject 
to the additional air quality planning and emissions control 
requirements of the ``Serious'' classification because they may not 
attain the 2008 NAAQS by the Moderate area attainment deadline of July 
20, 2018. For these areas, states will need to take further steps to 
ensure air quality standards are achieved by the next attainment 
deadline.
     The estimates have been calculated using 2017 dollars. The 
adjustments to the cost assumptions are summarized in sections 6(b) and 
6(c) of the supporting statement, and fully detailed in a background 
spreadsheet titled, ``Estimate of Burden for 2008 O3 SIP Rule 1st 
Renewal ICR Worksheet, 2017.'' This spreadsheet is available in the 
docket.
