Notice of Request for Revision to and Extension of Approval of an Information Collection; Citrus Canker; Interstate Movement of Regulated Nursery Stock and Fruit From Quarantined Areas, 44851-44852 [2020-16026]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 143 / Friday, July 24, 2020 / Notices associated with distressed borrowers from the Telecommunications Infrastructure Loan Program, Rural Broadband Program, Distance Learning and Telemedicine Program, Broadband Initiatives Program, and Rural eConnectivity Pilot Program. The purpose of the regulation is to streamline servicing actions, improve the government’s recovery on such loans, and improve customer service. Need and Use of the Information: The information collection addresses RD’s expanded authority, with the codification of the rulemaking, to address servicing actions. RD considers it imperative to use the expanded authority for servicing actions associated with the RUS Telecommunications Programs in order to: (1) Maximize risk management of loan portfolio; (2) reduce duplication of effort between federal agencies, which may expedite servicing of distressed borrowers; (3) ensure efficient recovery of debt which may mitigate negative impact on program subsidy rates; and (4) simplify the servicing process for the Agency and therefore minimize the financial burden and costs on borrowers. The Agency provides forms and/or guidelines to assist in collection and submission of the information required to service loans. In some cases, use of Agency forms is optional and the borrower may submit the information required on other forms. The forms or related items completed by the borrower are submitted to and evaluated by the Agency. Failure to collect proper information from borrowers could result in improper determinations of servicing assistance, hinder the government’s recovery of such loans as well as encumber customer service. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; Not for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 5. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 695.

Risk Management Agency Title: Area Risk Protection Insurance. OMB Control Number: 0563–0083. Summary of Collection: The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) is a wholly-owned Government corporation created February 16, 1938 (7 U.S.C. 1501). The program was amended previously, but Public Law 96–365, dated September 26, 1980, provided for nationwide expansion of a comprehensive crop insurance program. The Federal Crop Insurance Act, as amended in later years further expanded this role of the crop insurance program to be the principal tool for risk management by producers of agricultural commodities. The Act was again amended on June 20, 2020, by Public Law 106–224 which mandates changes to crop insurance regulations, provides for independent review of crop insurance products by persons PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44851 experienced in actuaries and in underwriting, and gives contracting authority for the development of new products. Need and Use of the Information: The Area Risk Protection Insurance (ARPI) includes three separate plans of insurance: (1) Area Revenue Protection which protects against price declines and automatically includes Upside Harvest Price Protection (UHPP) which protects against price increases; (2) ARP with the Harvest Price Exclusion, which excludes UHPP and protects against price declines but not against price increases; and (3) Area Yield Protection which only protects against loss of yield. Using a wide range of data elements producers are required to report specific data when they apply for ARPI such as acreage and yields. Insurance companies accept applications; issue policies; establish and provide insurance coverage; compute liability, premium, subsidies, and losses; indemnify producers; and report specific data to FCIC as required in Appendix III/M13 Handbook. If producers and insurance companies did not submit the required data at the specified time, accurate liabilities, premium, and subsidies may not be determined, errors may not be resolved timely, producers may not receive accurate indemnities, payments may be late, crop insurance may not be actuarially sound as mandated by the Act. Description of Respondents: Producers and insurance companies. Number of Respondents: 18,634. Frequency of Responses: Weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually, semiannually. Total Burden Hours: 80,324.

Citrus canker is a plant disease that affects plants and plant parts, including fresh fruit of citrus and citrus relatives (family Rutaceae). Citrus canker can cause defoliation and other serious damage to the leaves and twigs of susceptible plants. It can also cause lesions on the fruit of infected plants and cause infected fruit to drop from trees before reaching maturity. The aggressive A (Asiatic) strain of citrus canker can infect susceptible plants rapidly and lead to extensive economic losses in commercial citrus-producing areas. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s regulations to prevent the interstate spread of citrus canker are contained in ‘‘Subpart MCitrus Canker’’ (7 CFR 301.75–1 through 301.75–17). The regulations restrict the interstate movement of regulated articles from and through areas quarantined because of citrus canker and provide, among other things, conditions under which regulated nursery stock and fruit may be moved interstate. The interstate movement of regulated nursery stock and fruit from quarantined areas involves information collection activities including compliance agreements, limited permits, requests for Federal certificates, and appeals. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Citrus Canker; Interstate Movement of Regulated Nursery 
Stock and Fruit From Quarantined Areas.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0317.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) 
authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture, either independently or in 
cooperation with States, to carry out operations or measures to detect, 
eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of plant 
pests, such as citrus canker, that are new to or not widely distributed 
within the United States.
    Citrus canker is a plant disease that affects plants and plant 
parts, including fresh fruit of citrus and citrus relatives (family 
Rutaceae). Citrus canker can cause defoliation and other serious damage 
to the leaves and twigs of susceptible plants. It can also cause 
lesions on the fruit of infected plants and cause infected fruit to 
drop from trees before reaching maturity. The aggressive A (Asiatic) 
strain of citrus canker can infect susceptible plants rapidly and lead 
to extensive economic losses in commercial citrus-producing areas.
    The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service's regulations to 
prevent the interstate spread of citrus canker are contained in 
``Subpart M-Citrus Canker'' (7 CFR 301.75-1 through 301.75-17). The 
regulations restrict the interstate movement of regulated articles from 
and through areas quarantined because of citrus canker and provide, 
among other things, conditions under which regulated nursery stock and 
fruit may be moved interstate. The interstate movement of regulated 
nursery stock and fruit from quarantined areas involves information 
collection activities including compliance agreements, limited permits, 
requests for Federal certificates, and appeals.
    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 0.2 hours per response.
    Respondents: Citrus growers and packinghouses.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 367.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 37.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 13,644.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 2,678 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.
