ACTION: Submission for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review; comment request. AGENCY: The Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted an information collection request to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a threeyear extension of Western Area Power Administration’s (WAPA) Applicant Profile Data (APD), OMB Control Number 1910–5136. The proposed collection is necessary for the proper performance of WAPA’s functions. WAPA markets a limited amount of Federal hydropower. Due to the high demand for WAPA’s power, WAPA needs the ability to collect information under the information collection request in order to evaluate who may receive an allocation of Federal power pursuant to SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Oct 06, 2020 Jkt 253001 specific marketing plans. This APD public process only determines the information WAPA will collect in its information collection request. The actual allocation of Federal power will be conducted through a separate marketing plan process outside the scope of this APD process. DATES: Comments regarding this collection must be received on or before November 6, 2020. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the OMB Desk Officer of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible. The Desk Officer may be telephoned at (202) 395–4718. ADDRESSES: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAMain.

The proposed APD form is available on WAPA’s website at www.wapa.gov/PowerMarketing/Pages/ applicant-profile-data.aspx. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No.: 1910–5136; (2) Information Collection Request Title: Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) Applicant Profile Data; (3) Type of Review: Renewal; (4) Purpose: WAPA is collecting—and will continue to collect—the data under its APD to properly perform its function of marketing a limited amount of Federal hydropower. The information WAPA collects is voluntary. Due to the high demand for WAPA’s power and limited amount of available power, WAPA will use the information collected in the APD—and has used the information collected under the current OMBapproved control number—pursuant to its marketing plans, to determine an applicant’s eligibility for an allocation of Federal power. As a result, the information WAPA collects under its APD is both necessary and useful. WAPA notes the Paperwork Reduction Act is the process whereby WAPA obtains approval from OMB to collect information from the public. It is a legal requirement WAPA must comply with before requesting an interested party PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submit an application for power. The Paperwork Reduction Act process is not the process in which interested parties apply for a new allocation of Federal power. The allocation of power from WAPA is outside the scope of this process and is completed in a separate marketing plan process by each WAPA region, when required; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 33.333; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 33.333; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 250; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: $32,046.98. Statutory Authority: Reclamation Laws are a series of laws arising from the Desert Land Act of 1877 and include, but are not limited to: The Desert Land Act of 1877, Reclamation Act of 1902, Reclamation Project Act of 1939, and the Acts authorizing each individual project such as the Central Valley Project Authorizing Act of 1937. See Ch. 107, 19 stat. 377 (1877), Ch. 1093, 32 Stat. 388 (1902), Ch. 418, 53 Stat. 1187 (1939), Ch. 832, 50 Stat. 844, 850 (1937), all as amended and supplemented. The Reclamation Act of 1902 established the Federal reclamation program. See Ch. 1093, 32 Stat. 388 (1902), as amended and supplemented. The basic principle of the Reclamation Act of 1902 was that the United States, through the Secretary of the Interior, would build and operate irrigation works from the proceeds of public land sales in the sixteen arid Western states (a seventeenth was later added). The Reclamation Project Act of 1939 expanded the purposes of the reclamation program and specified certain terms for contracts that the Secretary of the Interior enters into to furnish water and power. See Ch. 418, 53 Stat. 1187 (1939), as amended and supplemented. In 1977, the Department of Energy Organization Act transferred the power marketing functions of the Department of the Interior to the Secretary of Energy, acting by and through a separate Administrator for WAPA. See 42 U.S.C. 7152(a)(1)(D). Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944 is read in pari materia with Reclamation Laws with respect to WAPA.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collections. Comments are requested concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees. The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Oct 06, 2020 Jkt 253001 a collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid OMB control number.

Title: Sections 1.1307 and 1.1311, Guidelines for Evaluating the Environmental Effects of Radiofrequency Exposure. Form Number: N/A. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Individuals or households, Business or other for-profit, Not-for-profit institutions, and State, Local or Tribal government. Number of Respondents and Responses: 335,441 Respondents; 335,441 Responses. Estimated Time per Response: 0.0833 hours (5 minutes)¥20 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement and third-party disclosure requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this Information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 302, 303, 303(r), and 307. Total Annual Burden: 41,997 hours. Total Annual Costs: $2,933,431. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is a minimal exemption from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), and 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules, that is granted for trade secrets and privileged or confidential commercial or financial information, which may be submitted to the Commission as part of the documentation of test results. No other assurances of confidentiality are provided to respondents. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this revised information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after this 60-day comment period in order to obtain the full three-year clearance. This information collection is a result of responsibility placed on the FCC by PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63273 the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. NEPA requires that each federal agency evaluate the impact of ‘‘major actions significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.’’ It is the FCC’s opinion that this is the most efficient and reasonable method of complying with NEPA with regard to the environmental issue of radiofrequency radiation from FCCregulated transmitters. The December 2019 RF Exposure Second Report and Order, ET Docket Nos. 03–137 and 13–184, FCC 19–126, amended §§ 1.1307, 2.1091 and 2.1093 requiring approval by OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act (85 FR 18131, April 1, 2020). The Commission subsequently stated that the amendments to these rules affects information collections under the Paperwork Reduction Act. 85 FR 33578 (June 2, 2020). Revision to information collection effected by amendments to §§ 2.1091 and 2.1093 is reported separately under OMB Information Collection 3060–0057. In amended § 1.1307, the Commission revised its implementing rules to reflect modern technology and current uses. The Commission streamlined the criteria for determining when an applicant or licensee is exempt from our radio frequency (RF) exposure evaluation criteria by replacing servicebased exemptions with a formula-based approach. For those applicants and licensees who do not qualify for an exemption, the Commission provided more flexibility to establish compliance with our RF exposure limits. The Commission also specified methods that RF equipment operators can use to mitigate the risk of excess exposure, both to members of the public and trained workers (such as training, supervision, and signage). The amended rules provide more efficient, practical, and consistent RF exposure evaluation procedures and mitigation measures to help ensure compliance with the existing RF exposure limits. Most of the changes to § 1.1307 represent clarification or simplification of existing requirements and are not expected to significantly increase or decrease the estimated burden to respondents or to the Federal government. To address components of the amended requirements that were not included in previous burden estimates, isolated revisions were made to the burden estimates as summarized in the supporting statement of the Information Collection. To update burden estimates based on most recently available data, the Commission also adjusted the total number of respondents/responses, the total annual hourly burden, and the E:\FR\FM\07OCN1.SGM 07OCN1
