ACTION: Notice of proposed extension request. AGENCY: NARA proposes to request an extension from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of approval to use of a voluntary survey of visitors to the National Archives Museum and building in Washington, DC. In order to measure whether the National Archives Museum is successfully achieving its goals, as well as to determine if we need to make any modifications, we conduct a survey of those who have visited the National Archives Museum, using the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH) customer survey. This is a 12minute questionnaire given to a random sample of those exiting the NARA location in downtown Washington, DC. We invite you to comment on this proposed information collection pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: We must receive comments in writing on or before October 6, 2020. ADDRESSES: Send comments by email to tamee.fechhelm@nara.gov. Because our buildings are temporarily closed during the COVID–19 restrictions, we are not able to receive comments by mail during this time. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tamee Fechhelm, Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, by email at tamee.fechhelm@nara.gov or by telephone at 301.837.1694 with requests for additional information or copies of the proposed information collection and supporting statement. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13), we invite the public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed information collections. The comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for NARA to properly perform its functions; (b) our estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection and its accuracy; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information we collect; (d) ways we could minimize the burden on respondents of collecting the jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:25 Aug 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 information, including through information technology; and (e) whether this collection affects small businesses. We will summarize any comments you submit and include the summary in our request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, we solicit comments concerning the following information collection: Title: NARA Visitors Study. OMB number: 3095–0067. Agency form number: N/A. Type of review: Regular. Affected public: Individuals who visit the National Archives Experience in Washington, DC. Estimated number of respondents: 200. Estimated time per response: 12 minutes. Frequency of response: On occasion (when an individual visits the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC). Estimated total annual burden hours: 40 hours. Abstract: The general purpose of this voluntary data collection is to benchmark NARA’s museum performance in relation to other history museums. Information collected from visitors will assess the overall impact, expectations, presentation, logistics, motivation, demographic profile, and learning experience. Once we analyze the compiled information from the surveys as a set, the collected information will assist us to determine our success in achieving the museum’s goals. 47989 7237, 2415 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22314; Phone 703– 292–2454.

I. Discussion

    The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC's 
``Regulatory Guide'' series. This series was developed to describe and

specific issues or postulated events, and data that the NRC staff needs 
in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
    Revision 2 of RG 3.15 was issued with a temporary identification of 
Draft Regulatory Guide (DG)-3036. It describes the standard format and 
content that the NRC staff considers acceptable for license 
applications to authorize the receipt, possession, and storage of 
unirradiated fuel assemblies and associated radioactive materials at a 
nuclear power plant.

II. Additional Information

comments were received but they resulted in no changes in the technical 
content of the guide. Public comments on DG-3036 and the staff 
responses to the public comments are available under ADAMS Accession 
No. ML20164A213.
