Abstract: The authority of the Service to regulate non-Federal oil and gas operations on National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) lands is broadly derived from the Property Clause of the United States Constitution (Art. IV, Sec. 3), in carrying out the statutory mandates of the Secretary of the Interior, as delegated to the Service, to manage Federal lands and resources under the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act (NWRSAA), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act (NWRSIA; 16 U.S.C. 668dd et seq.), and to specifically manage species within the NWRS under the provisions of numerous statutes, the most notable of which are the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA; 16 U.S.C. 715 et seq.), the Endangered Species Act (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956 (FWA; 15 U.S.C. 742f). The Service’s regulations at 50 CFR, part 29, subpart D provide for the continued exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights while avoiding or minimizing unnecessary impacts to refuge resources and uses. Other land management agencies have regulations that address oil and gas development, including the Department of the Interior’s National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service. These agencies all require the submission of information similar to the information requested by the Service. The collection of information is necessary for the Service to properly balance the exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights within refuge boundaries with the Service’s responsibility to protect wildlife and habitat, water quality and quantity, wildlifedependent recreational opportunities, and the health and safety of employees and visitors on NWRS lands. The information collected under 50 CFR, part 29, subpart D identifies the owner and operator (the owner and operator can be the same) and details how the operator may access and develop oil and gas resources. It also identifies the steps the operator intends to take to minimize any adverse impacts of operations on refuge resource and uses. No information is submitted unless the operator wishes to conduct oil and gas operations. We use the information collected to: (1) Evaluate proposed operations, (2) ensure that all necessary mitigation measures are employed to protect refuge resources and values, and (3) ensure compliance with all applicable laws and PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regulations, including the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), the NWRSAA, as amended by the NWRSIA, and to specifically manage species within the NWRS under the provisions of numerous statutes, the most notable of which are the MBTA, the ESA, the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 U.S.C. 661 et seq.), and the FWA. Proposed Revisions Automation of Application Form Via ePermits With this submission, we are proposing to automate FWS Form 3– 2469 in the Service’s ‘‘ePermits’’ system, an automated permit application system that allows the agency to move towards a streamlined permitting process to reduce public burden. Public burden reduction is a priority for the Service; the Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks; and senior leadership at the Department of the Interior. The intent of ePermits is to fully automate the permitting process to improve the customer experience and to reduce time burden on respondents. This system enhances the user experience by allowing users to enter data from any device that has internet access, including personal computers (PCs), tablets, and smartphones. It also links the permit applicant to pay associated permit application fees via the Pay.gov system. Financial Assurances Costs With this submission, we will seek OMB approval of the costs associated with the financial assurances requirements as they are required per regulations contained in 50 CFR 29.103(b) and 50 CFR 29.150. These are not new costs, but rather we are bringing this requirement into compliance with the PRA as an annual non-hour burden cost. These costs were inadvertently overlooked with previous submissions for this collection of information. The estimated annual nonhour cost burden associated with the required financial assurances is captured below under ‘‘Total Estimated Annual Non-Hour Burden Cost.’’ Title of Collection: Non-Federal Oil and Gas Operations on National Wildlife Refuge System Lands, 50 CFR 29, Subpart D.

    Abstract: The authority of the Service to regulate non-Federal oil 
and gas operations on National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) lands is 
broadly derived from the Property Clause of the United States 
Constitution (Art. IV, Sec. 3), in carrying out the statutory mandates 
of the Secretary of the Interior, as delegated to the Service, to 
manage Federal lands and resources under the National Wildlife Refuge 
System Administration Act (NWRSAA), as amended by the National Wildlife 
Refuge System Improvement Act (NWRSIA; 16 U.S.C. 668dd et seq.), and to 
specifically manage species within the NWRS under the provisions of 
numerous statutes, the most notable of which are the Migratory Bird 
Treaty Act (MBTA; 16 U.S.C. 715 et seq.), the Endangered Species Act 
(ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956 
(FWA; 15 U.S.C. 742f).
    The Service's regulations at 50 CFR, part 29, subpart D provide for 
the continued exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights while avoiding 
or minimizing unnecessary impacts to refuge resources and uses. Other 
land management agencies have regulations that address oil and gas 
development, including the Department of the Interior's National Park 
Service and Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's Forest Service. These agencies all require the submission 
of information similar to the information requested by the Service.
    The collection of information is necessary for the Service to 
properly balance the exercise of non-Federal oil and gas rights within 
refuge boundaries with the Service's responsibility to protect wildlife 
and habitat, water quality and quantity, wildlife-dependent 
recreational opportunities, and the health and safety of employees and 
visitors on NWRS lands.
    The information collected under 50 CFR, part 29, subpart D 
identifies the owner and operator (the owner and operator can be the 
same) and details how the operator may access and develop oil and gas 
resources. It also identifies the steps the operator intends to take to 
minimize any adverse impacts of operations on refuge resource and uses. 
No information is submitted unless the operator wishes to conduct oil 
and gas operations.
    We use the information collected to: (1) Evaluate proposed 
operations, (2) ensure that all necessary mitigation measures are 
employed to protect refuge resources and values, and (3) ensure 
compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the 
National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its 
regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), the NWRSAA, as amended by the 
NWRSIA, and to specifically manage species within the NWRS under the 
provisions of numerous statutes, the most notable of which are the 
MBTA, the ESA, the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 U.S.C. 661 et 
seq.), and the FWA.

Proposed Revisions

Automation of Application Form Via ePermits

    With this submission, we are proposing to automate FWS Form 3-2469 
in the Service's ``ePermits'' system, an automated permit application 
system that allows the agency to move towards a streamlined permitting 
process to reduce public burden. Public burden reduction is a priority 
for the Service; the Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks; 
and senior leadership at the Department of the Interior. The intent of 
ePermits is to fully automate the permitting process to improve the 
customer experience and to reduce time burden on respondents. This 
system enhances the user experience by allowing users to enter data 
from any device that has internet access, including personal computers 
(PCs), tablets, and smartphones. It also links the permit applicant to 
pay associated permit application fees via the Pay.gov system.

Financial Assurances Costs

    With this submission, we will seek OMB approval of the costs 
associated with the financial assurances requirements as they are 
required per regulations contained in 50 CFR 29.103(b) and 50 CFR 
29.150. These are not new costs, but rather we are bringing this
