During the effective period of this exemption, States are exempt from the requirement in 49 CFR 1572.13(a) prohibiting renewal of an eligible individual’s HME for a CDL, unless the State receives a new STA (Determination of No Security Threat) from TSA. For the duration of this exemption, a State may extend the expiration date of an eligible individual’s HME for a period of no more than 180 days without a new STA. The State must notify each eligible individual that he or she is subject to an STA for renewal of the HME and that he or she must initiate the STA at least 60 days before the extended expiration date of the HME. If it is not practicable for a State to give individualized notice to drivers, the State may publish general notice, for example, on the appropriate website. TSA will continue to recurrently vet these individuals against terrorism and other governmental watch lists and databases and reserves authority under 49 CFR 1572.5(b) and 1572.13 to direct a State to revoke an individual’s HME immediately and at any time. For purposes of this exemption, an eligible individual is defined as an individual who held a valid, unexpired HME with an STA (Determination of No Security Threat) on or after March 1, 2020, which HME has expired or would otherwise expire between that date and the close of the effective period of this exemption. Limits of Exemption: This exemption does not apply to new HMEs nor does it affect any other requirements applicable to obtaining a commercial driver’s license under 49 CFR parts 383 and 384.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format.

We are again soliciting comments on the information collection request (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.

Abstract: The Lacey Act (Act, 18 U.S.C. 42) prohibits the importation of any animal deemed to be and prescribed by regulation to be injurious to: • Human beings; • The interests of agriculture, horticulture, and forestry; or • Wildlife or the wildlife resources of the United States. Implementation and enforcement of the Lacy Act is the responsibility of the Department of the Interior. The 50 CFR 16.13 regulations allow for the importation of dead uneviscerated salmonids (family Salmonidae), live salmonids, live fertilized eggs, or gametes of salmonid fish into the United States. To effectively carry out our responsibilities and protect the aquatic resources of the United States, it is necessary to collect information regarding the source, destination, and health status of salmonid fish and their reproductive parts. In order to evaluate import requests that contain this data, it is imperative that the information collected is accurate. Those individuals who provide the fish health data and sign the health certificate must demonstrate professional qualifications, and be approved as Title 50 Certifiers by E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1 19770 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 68 / Wednesday, April 8, 2020 / Notices the Fish and Wildlife Service through an application process. We use three forms to collect this Title 50 Certifier application information: (1) FWS Form 3–2273 (Title 50 Certifying Official Form). New applicants and those seeking recertification as a title 50 certifying official provide information so that we can assess their qualifications. (2) FWS Form 3–2274 (U.S. Title 50 Certification Form). Certifying officials use this form to affirm the health status of the fish or fish reproductive products to be imported. (3) FWS Form 3–2275 (Title 50 Importation Request Form). We use the information on this form to ensure the safety of the shipment and to track and control importations. With this submission, we updated FWS Forms 3–2273 and 3–2275 to clarify the information collected. We did not make any updates to Form 3– 2274. We also plan to begin publishing, with OMB approval, the results of this information collection for Form 3–2273 on a publically accessible, Servicemanaged web page to inform importers of Certified Signing Officials by country of origin.

The requested permits would allow the applicants to conduct activities intended to promote recovery of species that are listed as endangered or threatened under the ESA. Background With some exceptions, the ESA prohibits activities that constitute take of listed species unless a Federal permit is issued that allows such activity. The ESA’s definition of ‘‘take’’ includes such activities as pursuing, harassing, trapping, capturing, or collecting in addition to hunting, shooting, harming, wounding, or killing. A recovery permit issued by us under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA authorizes the permittee to conduct activities with endangered or threatened species for scientific purposes that promote recovery or for enhancement of propagation or survival of the species. These activities often include such prohibited actions as capture and collection. Our regulations E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1
