SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA,1 Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of Information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3 and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information listed below. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Title: Regulations Establishing and Governing the Duties of Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants (OMB Control No. 3038–0084). This is a request for an extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: On April 3, 2012 the Commission adopted Commission regulations 23.600 (Risk Management Program), 23.601 (Monitoring of jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: 1 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

The above regulations adopted by the Commission would, among other things, require swap dealers (‘‘SD’’) 4 and major swap participants (‘‘MSP’’) 5 to develop a risk management program (including a plan for business continuity and disaster recovery and policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance with applicable position limits). The Commission believes that the information collection obligations imposed by the above regulations are essential to ensuring that swap dealers and major swap participants maintain adequate and effective risk management programs and policies and procedures to ensure compliance with position limits. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites comments on: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have a practical use; • The accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to http:// www.cftc.gov.

Under Public Law 105–261, approximately 11,816 acres of public land, located in Owyhee and Twin Falls counties, Idaho, from the Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management was withdrawn to the Air Force for military use. Public Law 105–261 will expire in 2023; therefore, the Air Force is proposing to extend the withdrawal of this public land for continued military training for an additional 25 years. In addition, except as provided in subsection 2908(f) of Public Law 105– 261, withdrawn and acquired mineral resources within the boundaries of the Juniper Butte Range will continue as originally withdrawn from the United States mining laws. The extension would allow the Air Force to sustain its mission for enhanced readiness training as well as maintain critical existing assets that support the mission.

Under the No Action Alternative, the withdrawal of public lands would not be extended, and public lands would be relinquished to the Bureau of Land Management.
