Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $500 in recordkeeping/reporting costs. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits. Legal Authority: The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). I. Abstract The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) imposed prohibitions against the taking of endangered species. Section 10 of the ESA allows permits authorizing the taking of endangered species for research/enhancement purposes. The corresponding regulations established procedures for persons to apply for such permits. In addition, the regulations set forth specific reporting requirements for such permit holders. The regulations contain two sets of information collections: (1) Applications for research/enhancement permits, and (2) reporting requirements for permits issued. The required information is used to evaluate the impacts of the proposed activity on endangered species, to make the determinations required by the ESA prior to issuing a permit, and to establish appropriate permit conditions. To issue permits under ESA Section 10(a)(1)(A), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) must determine that (1) such exceptions were applied for in good faith, (2) if granted and exercised, will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species, and (3) will be consistent with the purposes and policy set forth in Section 2 of the ESA. We are soliciting public comments to permit the Department/Bureau to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the time and cost burden for this proposed collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Evaluate ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Minimize the reporting burden on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request to OMB to approve this ICR. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) implemented Federal regulations at 50 CFR 665.815(b) requiring Hawaii-based longline fisherman to safely handle and release short-tailed albatrosses (Phoebastria albatrus) (STAL) caught incidentally during fishing operations. These regulations satisfy the Terms and Conditions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) November 2000 ‘‘Biological Opinion for the Effects of the Hawaii-based Longline Fleet on the Short-tailed Albatross (Phoebastra albatrus) [FWS 1–2–1999–F–02R]’’ (revised November 18, 2002, October 8, 2004, and January 6, 2012) (BiOp) issued pursuant to Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Following the retrieval of the albatross from the ocean, the vessel operator must record the condition of the bird on a recovery data form. A veterinarian will use the information to provide advice to the vessel operator for caring for the bird. If the albatross is dead, the vessel operator must attach an identification tag to the carcass to assist U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) biologists in follow-up studies on the specimen. This collection is one of the terms and conditions contained in the Endangered Species Act Section 7 biological opinion E:\FR\FM\21APN1.SGM 21APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The National Weather Service (NWS) established the StormReady 
program in 1999 and the TsunamiReady program in 2002 to help 
communities, counties, Indian nations, universities and colleges, 
military bases, government sites, commercial enterprises and other 
groups reduce the potential for weather-related and tsunami hazards 
through advanced planning, education, and awareness. The program 
encourages

[[Page 20663]]

communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local 
hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with 
clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather 
operations. By participating in this program, local agencies earn 
recognition for their jurisdiction by meeting guidelines established by 
the NWS in partnership with federal, state, and local emergency

local NWS StormReady Advisory Board and endorsement of local emergency 
management. A local StormReady Advisory Board has final approval for 
Supporter designation.
    StormReady/TsunamiReady are voluntary programs that provide 
guidance and incentive to officials interested in improving their 
hazardous weather operations. The government will use the information 
collected by the StormReady/TsunamiReady application to determine 
whether a community has met all of the guidelines to receive 
StormReady/TsunamiReady recognition.
