Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 16014-16015 [2019-07663]

Download as PDF 16014 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 74 / Wednesday, April 17, 2019 / Notices Total estimated burden: 1,880 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $380,000 (per year), which includes $165,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in burden for this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This situation is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
