SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: APHIS Pest Reporting and Asian Longhorn Beetle Program.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0311.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: As authorized by the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701 
et seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), 
either independently or in cooperation with States, may carry out 
operations or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, 
prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests and diseases that are new 
to or not widely distributed within the United States. This authority 
allows APHIS to establish control programs for a number of pests and 
diseases of concern, including Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), emerald 
ash borer beetle, and citrus greening, to name a few.
    APHIS relies on various entities, such as individuals, households, 
businesses, and State departments of agriculture to report sightings of 
pests of concern or suspicious signs of pest or disease damage they may 
see in their local areas and provide information needed to conduct 
Asian Longhorned Beetle Program activities. This reporting and the 
detection and verification methods involved include information 
collection activities, such as the online pest reporting form, 
inspection and ALB unified survey form, cooperative agreement for 
inspection, State compliance training workshop records, contract for 
inspection, homeowner permission or refusal to inspect, tree removal 
agreement, litigation and warrants and associated letters, removal and 
monitoring, removal and disposal, disposal/Marshalling Yard, tree 
warrant, treatment agreement, contract for treatment, and certificate/
permit cancellation.
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities, as described, for 
an additional 3 years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, 
electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of 
information is estimated to average 0.637 hours per response.
    Respondents: Individuals and households, businesses, and State 
departments of agriculture.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 7,055.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 98.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 688,755.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 438,715 hours. (Due 
to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product 
of the annual

number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.)
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.
