SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is rescinding the following systems of records notices from its inventory: • INTERIOR/WBR–15, Land Settlement Entries; • INTERIOR/WBR–17, Lands— Leases, Sales, Rentals, and Transfers; • INTERIOR/WBR–19, Mineral Location Entries; • INTERIOR/WBR–22, Oil and Gas Applications; VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Mar 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 • INTERIOR/WBR–28, Real Property and Right-of-Way Acquisitions; • INTERIOR/WBR–29, Right-of-Way Applications; • INTERIOR/WBR–32, Special Use Applications, Licenses, and Permits; • INTERIOR/WBR–41, Permits; and • INTERIOR/WBR–43, Real Estate Comparable Sales Data Storage. During a review of these notices, Reclamation determined that these nine systems contained duplicative content and were managed by one System Manager in the land and realty program. In an effort to streamline land and realty program functions, improve consistency, eliminate duplicative content, and promote transparency, Reclamation modified the INTERIOR/ WBR–14, Land Exchange system to incorporate these nine systems of records and published a revised notice, INTERIOR/Reclamation–14, Land and Realty Program, in the Federal Register at 84 FR 51614 (September 30, 2019). The modified system will help Reclamation manage the land and realty program and maintain an inventory of all land, facilities, and waterbodies under Reclamation’s jurisdiction. Rescinding the nine systems of records notices will have no adverse impacts on individuals as these records are covered under the INTERIOR/Reclamation-14, Land and Realty Program, system of records notice. This rescindment will also promote the overall streamlining and management of Department of the Interior Privacy Act systems of records. This notice hereby rescinds the nine Reclamation systems of records notices identified below. SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER: 1. INTERIOR/WBR–15, Land Settlement Entries. 2.
