Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0062. Form(s): BASE electronic checklist. Affected Public: Highway transportation asset owners and operators; and, public transportation agencies, including mass transit bus, rail transit, and less common types of service (such as cable cars, inclined planes, funiculars, and automated guideway systems). Abstract: TSA’s BASE program works with existing (and new) transportation asset and system owner/operators by asking established questions to identify their current security posture, identify security gaps, and encourage implementation of countermeasures applicable to the specific surface mode of transportation. Data and results collected through the BASE program will inform TSA’s policy and program initiatives and allow TSA to provide focused resources and tools to enhance the overall security posture within these sectors of the surface transportation community.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47655 In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On May 14, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 28972) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on July 13, 2020. We received the following comments in response to that notice: Comment 1: Email comment received on May 15, 2020, from Jean Public; however, her comment did not address the information collection requirements. Agency Response to Comment 1: No response required. Comment 2: Email comment received on July 9, 2020, from Holly Huchko, Endangered Species Act Program Specialist/Sport Fish Restoration Coordinator, on behalf of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW): Ms. Huchko emphasized that the national data generated by the FHWAR are invaluable for assessing engagement in and spending on outdoor recreation in Oregon. She stated that the FHWAR survey is also essential to USFWS WSFR program and ODFW, since coastal States must obligate Sport Fish Restoration program grant funds so that the ratio is equal to the resident marine and freshwater anglers (50 CFR 80.65– 66). Ms. Huchko shared the understanding that for the 2022 and future FHWAR surveys, States will need to pay for State level data if desired, though USFWS will continue to provide the freshwater/saltwater percent of resident anglers in coastal States at no cost. This information may be used for determining the Sport Fish Restoration saltwater/freshwater split. Ms. Huchko’s understanding is accurate. Finally, Ms. Huchko urged that the FHWAR continue to be administered in both mail and digital (web) modes, so as to reduce barriers to participation. Agency Response to Comment 2: The methodology for the 2022 FHWAR, described above, is responsive to the needs identified in Ms. Huchko’s comments. Oregon and other coastal States will continue to receive data on the number of freshwater/saltwater SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1
