Abstract: The Captive Wildlife Safety Act (CWSA; Pub. L. 108–191, 16 U.S.C. 3371 note, and 16 U.S.C. 3372 note) amended the Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371 et seq.; 18 U.S.C. 42–43) by making it illegal to import, export, buy, sell, transport, receive, or acquire, in interstate or foreign commerce, live lions, tigers, leopards, snow leopards, clouded leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, or cougars, or any hybrid combination of any of these species, unless certain exceptions are met. The CWSA was signed into law in 2003, and enforcement began on September 17, 2007. There are several exemptions to the prohibitions of the CWSA, including accredited wildlife sanctuaries. There is no requirement for wildlife sanctuaries to submit applications to qualify for the accredited wildlife sanctuary exemption. Wildlife sanctuaries themselves will determine if they qualify. As a matter of routine, we do not inspect or follow up on wildlife sanctuaries unless we have cause for concern. To qualify, they must meet all of the following criteria: • Obtain approval by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(a) of the IRS Code of 1986 (Pub. L. 99–514), which is described in sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of that code. • Do not engage in commercial trade in the prohibited wildlife species, including offspring, parts, and products. • Do not propagate the prohibited wildlife species. • Allow no direct contact between the public and the prohibited wildlife species. The basis for this information collection is the recordkeeping requirement that we place on accredited wildlife sanctuaries. We require accredited wildlife sanctuaries to maintain complete and accurate records of any possession, transportation, acquisition, disposition, importation, or exportation of the prohibited wildlife species as defined in the CWSA (see title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at part 14, subpart K). Records must be up to date and include: (1) Names and addresses of persons to or from whom any prohibited wildlife species has been acquired, imported, exported, purchased, sold, or otherwise transferred; and (2) dates of these PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 transactions. Accredited wildlife sanctuaries must: • Maintain these records for 5 years. • Make these records accessible to Service officials for inspection at reasonable hours. • Copy these records for Service officials, if requested. Title of Collection: Captive Wildlife Safety Act, 50 CFR 14.250–14.255. OMB Control Number: 1018–0129. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Accredited wildlife sanctuaries. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 750. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 750. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 1 hour. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 750. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: Ongoing.

Abstract: On March 16, 1934, Congress passed, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed, the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act (16 U.S.C. 718a et seq.). Popularly known as the Duck Stamp Act, it requires all migratory waterfowl hunters 16 years of age or older to buy a Federal migratory bird hunting and conservation stamp (Federal Duck Stamp) annually. The stamps are a vital tool for wetland conservation. Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. The Federal Duck Stamp program is one of the most successful conservation programs ever initiated and is a highly effective way to conserve America’s natural resources. Besides serving as a hunting license and a conservation tool, a current year’s Federal Duck Stamp also serves as an entrance pass for national wildlife refuges where admission is charged. Duck Stamps and products that bear stamp images are also popular collector’s items. The Electronic Duck Stamp Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–266) required the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a 3year pilot program, under which States could issue electronic Federal Duck Stamps. This pilot program is now permanent with the passage of the Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113–239). Anyone, regardless of State residence, is able to purchase an electronic Duck Stamp through any State that participates in the program. The electronic stamp is issued as a temporary permit and is valid from the date of purchase through up to 45 days after the date of purchase, and thus is available for immediate use PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12483 by the purchaser while he or she waits to receive the actual physical stamp in the mail. Upon receipt of the physical stamp or after the temporary permit expires, whichever comes first, the purchaser must carry the signed physical Federal Duck Stamp while hunting or to gain fee-free access to national wildlife refuges. Eight States participated in the pilot. At the end of the pilot, we provided a report to Congress outlining the successes of the program. The program improved public participation by increasing the ability of the public to obtain required Federal Duck Stamps. Under our authorities in 16 U.S.C. 718 et seq., we continued the Electronic Duck Stamp Program in the eight States that participated in the pilot. Currently, the expanded program includes 28 States. Several additional States have indicated interest in participating, and we have had requests to continue to expand the program by continuing to invite the remaining eligible State fish and wildlife agencies to apply to participate. Interested States must submit an application (FWS Form 3– 2341). We will use the information provided in the application to determine a State’s eligibility to participate in the program and willingness to comply with the temporary permit requirements of issuing an electronic stamp. Information includes, but is not limited to: • Information verifying the current systems the State uses to sell hunting, fishing, and other associated licenses and products. • Applicable State laws, regulations, or policies that authorize the use of electronic systems to issue licenses. • Examples and explanations of the codes the State proposes to use to create and endorse the unique identifier for the individual to whom each stamp is issued. • Mockup copy of the printed version of the State’s proposed electronic stamp, including a description of how attention will be drawn to the 45-day validity of the temporary electronic stamp, customer support information, and identifying features of the licensee to be specified on the temporary permit. • Description of any fee the State will charge for issuance of an electronic stamp. • Description of the process the State will use to account for and transfer the amounts collected by the State that are required to be transferred under the program. • Manner in which the State will transmit electronic stamp customer data.

We do not plan to make any substantive changes to the application form (FWS Form 3–2341); however, we updated the formatting of the form to be compliant with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794d), and to conform with formatting requirements of the Department of the Interior and the Service.
