Abstract: Gathering and removing plants or plant parts is currently prohibited in National Park System areas unless specifically authorized by Federal statute or treaty rights or conducted under the limited circumstances authorized by an existing regulation codified in 36 CFR 2.1(c). Regulations codified in 36 CFR part 2 allow the gathering and removal of plants or plant parts by enrolled members of federally recognized tribes for traditional purposes. The regulations authorize agreements between the NPS and federally recognized tribes to facilitate the continuation of tribal cultural practices on lands within areas of the National Park System where those practices traditionally occurred, without causing a significant adverse impact to park resources or values. The regulations: • respect tribal sovereignty and cultural practices, • further the government-togovernment relationship between the United States and the Indian Tribes, • provide system-wide consistency for this aspect of NPS-Tribal relations. The agreements explicitly recognize the special government-to-government relationship between the United States and Indian Tribes, and are based upon mutually agreed upon terms and conditions subject to the requirements of 36 CFR 2.6(f). The agreements serve as the documents through which the NPS authorizes tribal gathering implemented by an accompanying permit authorized by 36 CFR 1.6. Only enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe are allowed to collect plants or plant parts, and the tribe must be traditionally associated with the specific park area. This traditional association must predate the establishment of the park. The plant gathering must meet a traditional purpose that is a customary activity and practice rooted in the history of the tribe and is important for the continuation of the tribe’s distinct culture. Authorized plant gathering must be sustainable and may not result in a significant adverse impact on park resources or values. The sale and commercial use of plants or plant parts within areas of the National Park System will continue to be prohibited by the NPS regulations in 36 CFR 2.1(c)(3)(v). The information collections associated with 36 CFR part 2 include: Estimated number of annual responses Activity/requirement Completion time per response (Hours) Estimated total annual burden hours Initial Written Request from an Indian Tribal Official ..................................................................

The request must include the information specified in § 2.6(c). (2) The agreement defines the terms under which the NPS may issue a permit to a tribe for plant gathering purposes. To make determinations based upon tribal requests or to enter into an agreement, we may need to collect information from specific tribal members or tribes who make requests. The agreement must contain the information specified in § 2.6(f). (3) Tribes may submit an appeal to the NPS to provide additional information on historical relationship of the tribe, traditional uses of plants to be gathered, and/or the impact of gathering on the resource of concern in the event of a denial by the NPS on this issue.

In addition to the IUPAC name, acetone is also referred to as b-ketopropane (or betaketopropane), ketone propane, methyl ketone, dimethyl ketone, DMK, dimethyl carbonyl, propanone, 2propanone, dimethyl formaldehyde, pyroacetic acid, pyroacetic ether, and pyroacetic spirit. Acetone is an isomer of the chemical formula C3H6O, with a specific molecular formula of CH3COCH3 or (CH3)2CO. The scope includes acetone that is combined or mixed with other products, including, but not limited to, isopropyl alcohol, benzene, diethyl ether, methanol, chloroform, and ethanol, regardless of the quantity or value of the acetone component.

    On May 14, 2019, we published a Federal Register notice soliciting 
comments on this collection of information for 60 days, ending on July 
13, 2019 (84 FR 21355). We did not receive any comments in response to

    Abstract: Pursuant to the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), its Regulations

testing, or training purposes must have an oversight committee to 
evaluate all aspects of that institution's animal care and use. To be 
in compliance, the NPS is responsible for managing and maintaining an 
Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) that provides the 
experience and expertise necessary to assess and approve all research, 
testing, or training activities involving vertebrate animals on NPS 
managed lands and territories. All research, testing, or training 
projects involving animals taking place on NPS territories must be 
approved by the NPS IACUC prior to their commencement.
