The term ‘‘take’’ is defined under the ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. NMFS may make exceptions to the take prohibitions in section 9 of the ESA for programs that are approved by NMFS under section 4(d) of the ESA (50 CFR 223.203(b)). On Friday, June 28, 2019, NMFS published notice of the availability and opportunity to comment on a draft EA, three PEPDs, and four HGMPs on the proposed hatchery programs that are intended to contribute to the survival and recovery of Snake River Spring/ summer Chinook salmon and Snake River steelhead in the Snake River Basin, and enhance fishing opportunity. NMFS provided notice to advise other agencies and the public of the availability of these documents (84 FR 31049, June 28, 2019) and requested comments be received by July 29, 2019. In response, NMFS received requests from 5 entities for additional time to submit comments on the documents.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Regulation X) 12 CFR 1024. OMB Control Number: 3170–0016. Type of Review: Extension without change of an existing information collection. Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profit entities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 12,506. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,087,981. Abstract: The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA), 12 U.S.C. 2601 et seq., requires lenders, mortgage brokers, or servicers of home loans to provide borrowers with pertinent and timely disclosures regarding the nature and costs of the real estate settlement process. The Act also prohibits specific practices, such as kickbacks, and places limitations upon the use of escrow accounts. The purposes of RESPA include, in part, providing consumers with more effective advance disclosure of settlement costs and eliminating certain abusive practices that tend to increase unnecessarily the costs of settlement services. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (DoddFrank) amended RESPA by, among other things, mandating new mortgage disclosures and procedures to improve protections for consumers with certain residential mortgages, 12 U.S.C. 2605. Regulation X, 12 CFR 1024.1–.41, implements RESPA. Regulation X contains information collections in the form of various disclosure and recordkeeping requirements. The disclosures in this collection are required by the statute and implementing regulations. Consumers use the disclosures required by RESPA and Regulation X to inform their choice of settlement service providers, review the final terms of a settlement, understand who to contact about questions concerning their mortgage loan, and identify and protect themselves against inaccurate or questionable loan servicing practices.
