Download as PDF 4066 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 19 / Monday, January 29, 2018 / Notices 33 CFR 84.05(b) and (d) of the International and Inland Navigational Rules. The U.S. Coast Guard certifies that full compliance with the International and Inland Navigational Rules would interfere with the special functions and intent of the vessel and would not significantly enhance the safety of the vessel’s operation. Due to the design of the vessel, the superstructure is offset to the starboard side of the vessel as far aft as practical in order to permit the loading of two vehicles on the forward part of the main deck. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the M/V NORDLAND II (O.N. 1274463) to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the International Navigational Rules and 33 CFR 84.05 of the Inland Navigational Rules by placing its required lights about a line aft of amidships and 7 feet and 6 starboard of the vessel’s centerline. This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c) and 33 CFR 81.18. Dated: December 20, 2017. B.S. Gilda, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Prevention Chief, Thirteenth Coast Guard District.

Abstract: The BIA is seeking to renew the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 23, related to the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). BIA collects information using a consolidated caseload form, which tribal ICWA program directors fill out. BIA uses the information to determine the extent of service needs in local Indian communities, assess ICWA program effectiveness, and provide date for the annual program budget justification. The aggregated report is not considered confidential. This form must completed by tribes that operate child protection programs. Submission of this information by Indian tribes allows BIA to consolidate and review selected data on Indian child welfare cases. The data is useful on a local level, to the tribes and tribal entities that collect it, for case management purposes. The data are useful on a nationwide basis for planning and budget purposes. Title of Collection: Indian Child Welfare Quarterly and Annual Report. OMB Control Number: 1076–0131. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Indian tribes or tribal entities that are operating programs for Indian tribes. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 940 per year, on average. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,760 per year, on average. Estimated Completion Time per Response: Approximately 15 minutes for Part A—ICWA Data; approximately 15 minutes for Part B—Tribal Child Abuse and Neglect Data. E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1
