Information Collection Request Submitted to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Automobile Refinish Coatings (Renewal), 65391-65392 [2019-25764]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices The EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, the EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: This ICR describes the cost and burden associated with 40 CFR 121, the regulations that implement Clean Water Act (CWA) section 401. Under section 401, a federal agency may not issue a permit or license that may result in any discharge into waters of the United States unless the certifying authority where the discharge would originate issues a section 401 water quality certification verifying that the discharge will comply with certain water quality requirements or waives the certification requirement. CWA section 401 requires project proponents to submit project specific information to certifying authorities. Certifying authorities may act on project specific information by either granting, granting with conditions, denying, or waiving section 401 certification. CWA section 401 requires certifying authorities to submit information to the relevant federal licensing or permitting agency to indicate the action taken on a request for certification. The EPA is also responsible for coordinating input from certain neighboring or downstream states and tribes affected by a discharge from a federally licensed or permitted project under section 401(a)(2). Information collected directly collected by the EPA under section 401 in support of the section 402 permit program is already captured under an existing ICR (OMB Control Number 2040–0004, EPA ICR Number 0229.22) and therefore is not included in this analysis. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Applicants for certain federal licenses and permits; certifying authorities including states, territories, and authorized tribes. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Project Proponents: required to obtain or retain a benefit (33 U.S.C. 1341). Certifying Authorities: Not mandatory. Estimated number of respondents: 41,119 (total). Frequency of response: Per Federal Application. Total estimated burden: 328,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $18,000,000 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is a change in the total estimated respondent VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 burden, number of respondents, and number of responses compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB (OMB Control No. 2040–0295) due to refinements in how the estimates are calculated. See the Supporting Statement in the docket for more information on the changes in estimates. Dated: November 21, 2019.

The Access Arbitrage Order required that, within 45 days of its effective date, accessstimulating LECs remove any existing tariff provisions for terminating tandem switching or terminating tandem PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 switched transport access charges. Affected intermediate access providers have the same time period to prepare any tariff revisions which they may wish to file. The Access Arbitrage Order also required that access-stimulating LECs provide notice of their assumption of that financial responsibility to the Commission by filing a record of its access-stimulating status and acceptance of financial responsibility to the Commission by filing a record of its access-stimulating status and acceptance of financial responsibility in the Commission’s Access Arbitrage Order docket, and to provide notice to any affected IXCs and intermediate access providers of the same, within 45 days of approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). If, after approval of this requirement by OMB, access-stimulating LECs no longer engage in access stimulation they must also file notice of that change in status with the Commission and with any affected IXCs and intermediate access providers. The information collected through carriers’ tariffs is used by the Commission and state commissions to determine whether services offered are just and reasonable, as the Act requires. The tariffs and any supporting documentation are examined in order to determine if the services are offered in a just and reasonable manner. Federal Communications Commission.
