60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: HUD Certified Housing Counselor Registration-Office of Housing Counseling, 54915-54916 [2019-22334]

Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 198 / Friday, October 11, 2019 / Notices Previous Request for Comments The Coast Guard published a 60-day notice (84 FR 5459, February 21, 2019) and a 30-day notice (84 FR 19097, May 3, 2019) requesting comments, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). The 30-day notice elicited two comments which can be viewed at https:// www.regulations.gov in the docket USCG–2018–0498. This request provides a second 30-day comment period to address the public comments that we received and to solicit comments on the changes we made to the information collection request in response to the comments. The first commenter noted that there is a workgroup developing recommendations for improving recreational boating incident reporting and opening communication between the Coast Guard and all levels of enforcement. The commenter noted that the current form requires the owner of the vessel to fill out the form and submit it to the Coast Guard, but there is no efficient way for the states to require recreational boat owners who are unwilling or unable to submit the safety defect report to the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard supports allowing additional entities to report safety defects, and proposes to change the name of the report from ‘‘Consumer Safety Defect Report’’ to ‘‘Recreational Boat Safety Defect Report’’. The respondants for this new form will expand from receiving information from consumers (boat owners) to receiving information from any source, including boat owners, law enforcement, marine investigators, boat manufacturers, and the public. We will change the ‘‘who is reporting’’ section of the form to include places for names, addresses, and contact info for a company or agency and add check boxes for these additional sources to identify themselves as on the report, such as owner, manufacturer, law enforcement officer, investigator, and other. We will also collect vessel type, hull material, propulsion type, engine drive type and fuel using the 33 CFR 173/174 terms for those categories. The second commenter said that the reporting form should not have negative financial impacts on small business, service providers, or individuals and that someone should compensate these entities for their research. The commenter also noted that associated equipment can be dangerous to owners and operators. We agree that defective equipment is dangerous to vessel owners and operators. The purpose of submitting a safety defect report to the Coast Guard is so that the Coast Guard can look into the accuracy of the report VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Oct 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 54915 and advise manufacturers in repairing defects in their equipment before they become catastrophic defects. The Safety Defect Report is not intended to cause negative financial impact on those entities. Safety defect reporting advances our maritime safety missions by asking vessel operators, and other entities, to report any suspected safety defects to the Coast Guard. The commenter did not give any suggestions on how to improve the collection of information or the form. No changes to this collection have been made at this time as a result of the second comment DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT Information Collection Request SUMMARY: HUD is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the information collection described below.
