On May 30, 2019, we published a Federal Register notice soliciting comments on this collection of information for 60 days, ending on July 29, 2019 (84 FR 25068). We received one comment in response to that notice but it did not address the information collection requirements. No changes were made as a result of their comment. 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 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 Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA, 16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.) prohibits the unauthorized take of migratory birds and authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to regulate take of migratory birds in the United States. Under this authority, we control the hunting of migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the United States. This is a non-form collection. Regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. Additionally, for law enforcement PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an application for approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the application to decide whether to approve a material as nontoxic. Title of Collection: Approval Procedures for Nontoxic Shot and Shot Coatings (50 CFR 20.134). OMB Control Number: 1018–0067. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Businesses that produce and/or market approved nontoxic shot types or nontoxic shot coatings. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 1. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 3,200 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,200 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $26,630 ($1,630 application processing fee and $25,000 for solubility testing). 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. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Dated: September 10, 2019.

The Service’s 29D rule provides for the continued exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights while avoiding or minimizing unnecessary impacts to refuge resources and uses. Other land management agencies have regulations PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48367 that address oil and gas development, including the Department of the Interior’s National Park Service (NPS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service. These agencies all require the submission of information similar to the information requested by the Service. The collection of information is necessary for the Service to properly balance the exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights within refuge boundaries with the Service’s responsibility to protect wildlife and habitat, water quality and quantity, wildlifedependent recreational opportunities, and the health and safety of employees and visitors on NWRS lands. The information collected under the 29D rule identifies the owner and operator (the owner and operator can be the same) and details how the operator may access and develop oil and gas resources. It also identifies the steps the operator intends to take to minimize any adverse impacts of operations on refuge resource and uses. Operators do not submit information unless they wish to conduct oil and gas operations. We use the information collected to do the following: (1) Evaluate proposed operations; (2) Ensure that all necessary mitigation measures are employed to protect refuge resources and values; (3) Ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508) and the NWRSAA, as amended by the NWRSIA; and (4) Specifically manage species within the NWRS under the provisions of numerous statutes, the most notable of which are the MBTA, the ESA, the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 U.S.C. 661 et seq.), and the FWA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies

(ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956 
(FWA; 15 U.S.C. 742f).
    The Service's 29D rule provides for the continued exercise of non-
