We invite the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and continuing information collections, which helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register on March 30, 2020 during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: Report of Organization. OMB Control Number: 0607–0444. Form Number(s): NC–99001(L), NC– 99001(S), NC–99007. Type of Request: Regular Submission, Request for an Extension, without change of a Currently Approved Collection. Number of Respondents: 98,000. Average Hours per Response: 1.276 hours. Burden Hours: 125,016. Needs and Uses: The Census Bureau requests an extension of the currently approved Report of Organization data collection for survey years 2020, 2021 and 2022. The Census Bureau conducts the annual Report of Organization to update and maintain a centralized, multipurpose Business Register (BR). In particular, the survey supplies critical information on the organizational structure, operating characteristics, and employment and payroll of multilocation enterprises. The BR serves two fundamental purposes: • First and most important, it provides sampling populations and enumeration lists for the Census Bureau’s economic surveys and censuses, and it serves as an integral part of the statistical foundation underlying those programs. Essential for this purpose is the BR’s ability to identify all known United States business establishments and their parent companies. Further, the BR must VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Jul 29, 2020 Jkt 250001 accurately record basic business attributes needed to control sampling and enumeration. These attributes include industry and geographic classifications, measures of size and economic activity, ownership characteristics, and contact information (for example, name and address). • Second, it provides establishment data that serve as the basis for the annual County Business Patterns (CBP) statistical series. The CBP reports present data on number of establishments, first quarter payroll, annual payroll, and mid-March employment summarized by industry and employment size class for the United States, the District of Columbia, island areas, counties, and countyequivalents. No other annual or more frequent series of industry statistics provides comparable detail, particularly for small geographic areas. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13 of the United States Code, Sections 131 and 182. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view the Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be submitted within 30 days of the publication of this notice on the following website www.reginfo.gov/ public/do/PRAMain.

This document serves to notify the public of the availability and opportunity to comment on a draft HGMP.

ODFW has submitted an HGMP for the Clackamas Hatchery Spring Chinook Salmon program in the Clackamas River basin under Limit 5 of the 4(d) Rule. This program is primarily funded by the National Marine Fishery Service through the Mitchell Act, and partially funded by the City of Portland and Portland General Electric. Prior to making a final determination on the submitted HGMP, NMFS must make it available for the public to have the opportunity comment on how the HGMP addresses the criteria in Limit 5 of the 4(d) Rule. The submitted HGMP describes the hatchery program along with the associated monitoring and evaluation activities. The program will begin to integrate natural-origin returning adults into the hatchery broodstock in order to promote an increase in genetic fitness and survivability. Through the use of a conservative sliding scale approach, the ODFW will incorporate a small percentage of natural-origin returning adults. This integrated program will provide a much needed increase in genetic fitness to a highly domesticated hatchery stock that has struggled with precipitous declining returns for the last decade. ODFW hopes that this new management approach will supplement the much desired mark-selective Clackamas River spring Chinook salmon fishery. The program is intended to mitigate for fish losses caused by the construction and operation of the mainstem Columbia River and the Clackamas River dams by providing fishing opportunities for tribes and states, and to contribute to the survival and recovery of ESA-listed Lower Columbia River Chinook salmon.

Background

    Section 9 of the ESA and Federal regulations prohibit the 
``taking'' of a species listed as endangered or threatened. The term 
``take'' is defined under the ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, 
shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage 
in any such conduct. NMFS may make exceptions to the take prohibitions

in section 9 of the ESA for programs that are approved by NMFS under 
the 4(d) Rule (50 CFR 223.203(b)(6)).
    ODFW has submitted an HGMP for the Clackamas Hatchery Spring 
Chinook Salmon program in the Clackamas River basin under Limit 5 of 
the 4(d) Rule. This program is primarily funded by the National Marine 
Fishery Service through the Mitchell Act, and partially funded by the 
City of Portland and Portland General Electric.
    Prior to making a final determination on the submitted HGMP, NMFS 
must make it available for the public to have the opportunity comment 
on how the HGMP addresses the criteria in Limit 5 of the 4(d) Rule.
    The submitted HGMP describes the hatchery program along with the 
associated monitoring and evaluation activities. The program will begin 
to integrate natural-origin returning adults into the hatchery 
broodstock in order to promote an increase in genetic fitness and 
survivability. Through the use of a conservative sliding scale 
approach, the ODFW will incorporate a small percentage of natural-
origin returning adults. This integrated program will provide a much 
needed increase in genetic fitness to a highly domesticated hatchery 
stock that has struggled with precipitous declining returns for the 
last decade. ODFW hopes that this new management approach will 
supplement the much desired mark-selective Clackamas River spring 
Chinook salmon fishery. The program is intended to mitigate for fish 
losses caused by the construction and operation of the mainstem 
Columbia River and the Clackamas River dams by providing fishing 
opportunities for tribes and states, and to contribute to the survival 
and recovery of ESA-listed Lower Columbia River Chinook salmon.
