SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On September 28, 2018, we published a Federal Register notice soliciting comments on this collection of information for 60 days, ending on November 27, 2018 (83 FR 49121). We received no comments in response to the Federal Register notice. We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the Service; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Service enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17883 information to be collected; and (5) how might the Service minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA; 16 U.S.C. 3111–3126), and regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR part 100 and 36 CFR part 242, require persons engaged in taking fish, shellfish, and wildlife on public lands in Alaska for subsistence uses to apply for and obtain a permit to do so, and comply with reporting provisions of that permit. We currently use three forms in the recruitment and selection of members for regional advisory councils: (1) FWS Form 3–2321, ‘‘Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Membership Application/Nomination.’’ (2) FWS Form 3–2322, ‘‘Regional Advisory Council Candidate Interview.’’ (3) FWS Form 3–2323, ‘‘Regional Advisory Council Reference/Key Contact Interview.’’ The member selection process begins with the information that we collect on the application. Ten interagency review panels interview all applicants and nominees, their references, and regional key contacts. These contacts are based on the information that the applicant provides on the application form. The information that we collect through the application form and subsequent interviews is the basis of the Federal Subsistence Board’s recommendations to the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture for appointment and reappointment of council members. We are revising this collection to add a fourth form to the collection: FWS Form 3–2300, ‘‘Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Membership Incumbent Application.’’ This form asks for less information than the regular initial membership application form (3– 2321); we introduce this form in order to reduce the burden on any individuals seeking to continue to serve on the Council. E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1 17884 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 81 / Friday, April 26, 2019 / Notices We use the following forms to collect information from qualified rural residents for subsistence harvest: (1) FWS Form 3–2326, ‘‘Federal Subsistence Hunt Application, Permit, and Report.’’ (2) FWS Form 3–2327, ‘‘Designated Hunter Permit Application, Permit, and Report.’’ (3) FWS Form 3–2328, ‘‘Federal Subsistence Fishing Application, Permit, and Report.’’ (4) FWS Form 3–2378, ‘‘Designated Fishing Permit Application, Permit, and Report.’’ (5) FWS Form 3–2379, ‘‘Federal Subsistence Customary Trade Recordkeeping Form.’’ We use the information collected to evaluate: • Eligibility of applicant. • Subsistence harvest success. • Effectiveness of season lengths, harvest quotas, and harvest restrictions. • Hunting patterns and practices. • Hunter use. The Federal Subsistence Board uses the harvest data, along with other information, to set future season dates and harvest limits for Federal subsistence resource users. These seasons and harvest limits are set to meet the needs of subsistence users without adverse impact to the health of existing animal populations. In addition to the above forms, regulations at 50 CFR part 100 and 36 CFR part 242 contain requirements for the collection of information. We collect nonform information on: (1) Repeal of Federal subsistence rules and regulations (50 CFR 100.14 and 36 CFR 242.14). (2) Proposed changes to Federal subsistence regulations (50 CFR 100.18 and 36 CFR 242.18). (3) Special action requests (50 CFR 100.19 and 36 CFR 242.19).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies 
with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and 
continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact 
of our information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information 
collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired 
format.
    On September 28, 2018, we published a Federal Register notice 
soliciting comments on this collection of information for 60 days, 
ending on November 27, 2018 (83 FR 49121). We received no comments in 
response to the Federal Register notice.
    We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is 
described below. We are especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the 
proper functions of the Service; (2) will this information be processed 
and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; 
(4) how might the Service enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Service minimize 
the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the 
use of information technology.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment--including your personal 
identifying information--may be publicly available at any time. While

able to do so.
    Abstract: The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act 
(ANILCA; 16 U.S.C. 3111-3126), and regulations in the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR part 100 and 36 CFR part 242, require 
persons engaged in taking fish, shellfish, and wildlife on public lands 
in Alaska for subsistence uses to apply for and obtain a permit to do 
so, and comply with reporting provisions of that permit.
    We currently use three forms in the recruitment and selection of 
members for regional advisory councils:
    (1) FWS Form 3-2321, ``Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory 
Council Membership Application/Nomination.''
    (2) FWS Form 3-2322, ``Regional Advisory Council Candidate 
Interview.''
    (3) FWS Form 3-2323, ``Regional Advisory Council Reference/Key 
Contact Interview.''
    The member selection process begins with the information that we 
collect on the application. Ten interagency review panels interview all 
applicants and nominees, their references, and regional key contacts. 
These contacts are based on the information that the applicant provides 
on the application form. The information that we collect through the 
application form and subsequent interviews is the basis of the Federal 
Subsistence Board's recommendations to the Secretaries of the Interior 
and Agriculture for appointment and reappointment of council members.
    We are revising this collection to add a fourth form to the 
collection: FWS Form 3-2300, ``Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory 
Council Membership Incumbent Application.'' This form asks for less 
information than the regular initial membership application form (3-
2321); we introduce this form in order to reduce the burden on any 
individuals seeking to continue to serve on the Council.

[[Page 17884]]

    We use the following forms to collect information from qualified 
rural residents for subsistence harvest:
    (1) FWS Form 3-2326, ``Federal Subsistence Hunt Application, 
Permit, and Report.''
    (2) FWS Form 3-2327, ``Designated Hunter Permit Application, 
Permit, and Report.''
    (3) FWS Form 3-2328, ``Federal Subsistence Fishing Application,

    (4) FWS Form 3-2378, ``Designated Fishing Permit Application, 
Permit, and Report.''
    (5) FWS Form 3-2379, ``Federal Subsistence Customary Trade 
Recordkeeping Form.''
    We use the information collected to evaluate:
     Eligibility of applicant.
     Subsistence harvest success.
     Effectiveness of season lengths, harvest quotas, and 
harvest restrictions.
     Hunting patterns and practices.
     Hunter use.
    The Federal Subsistence Board uses the harvest data, along with 
other information, to set future season dates and harvest limits for 
Federal subsistence resource users. These seasons and harvest limits 
are set to meet the needs of subsistence users without adverse impact 
to the health of existing animal populations.
    In addition to the above forms, regulations at 50 CFR part 100 and 
36 CFR part 242 contain requirements for the collection of information. 
We collect nonform information on:
    (1) Repeal of Federal subsistence rules and regulations (50 CFR
