Abstract: The Organic Act of 1916 (NPS Organic Act) (54 U.S.C. 100101) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to develop regulations for units of the national park system (System units) under the Department’s jurisdiction. The Mining in the Parks Act (54 U.S.C. 100731 et seq.) directs the Secretary of the Interior to regulate all operations in System units in connection with the exercise of mineral rights on patented and unpatented mining claims. The regulations codified in 36 CFR part 9, subparts A and B, ensure that mining and non-Federal oil and gas activities in System units are conducted in a manner consistent with conserving each System unit for the benefit of present and future generations. The information required by Subpart A identifies the claim, claimant, and operator (the claimant and operator are often the same) and details how the operator intends to access and develop the minerals associated with the claim. It also identifies the steps the operator intends to take to minimize any adverse impacts of the mining operations on park resources and values. No information, except claim ownership information, is submitted unless the claimant wishes to conduct mining operations. The information required by Subpart B identifies the owner and operator (the owner and operator are often the same) and details how the operator intends to access and develop the oil and gas rights. It also identifies the steps the operator intends to take to minimize any adverse impacts on park resources and values. No information is submitted unless the owner wishes to conduct oil and gas operations. The information collected is used to evaluate proposed operations, ensure that all necessary mitigation measures are employed to protect park resources and values, and ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Abstract: The National Park Service Protection, Interpretation, and Research in System (54 U.S.C. 100101 et seq.), and the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S. Code Chapter 6A) give the NPS Office of Public Health (OPH) broad authority to collect public health data using NPS Forms 10–685—Concession Employee Illness Report and 10–686— Tour Vehicle Passenger Illness Report. The forms collect information on the symptoms, duration, and location of illness which allows public health workers to respond rapidly and appropriately to address health and safety incidents within the park system. The Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (DRSS) provides data on the symptoms, duration, and location of illness, which allows public health workers to work rapidly and appropriately to address the incidents. This data provides parks, OPH staff, managers of park concessioners, and park clinic concessioners with an early warning system for potential outbreaks to inform public health interventions. Title of Collection: Office of Public Health Disease Reporting and Surveillance Forms. OMB Control Number: 1024–0286. Form Number: NPS Forms 10–685 and 10–686. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals/households and private sector. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 390.

    Abstract: The Organic Act of 1916 (NPS Organic Act) (54 U.S.C. 
100101) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to develop regulations 
for units of the national park system (System units) under the 
Department's jurisdiction. The Mining in the Parks Act (54 U.S.C. 
100731 et seq.) directs the Secretary of the Interior to regulate all 
operations in System units in connection with the exercise of mineral 
rights on patented and unpatented mining claims.
    The regulations codified in 36 CFR part 9, subparts A and B, ensure 
that mining and non-Federal oil and gas activities in System units are 
conducted in a manner consistent with conserving each System unit for 
the benefit of present and future generations. The information required 
by Subpart A identifies the claim, claimant, and operator (the claimant 
and operator are often the same) and details how the operator intends 
to access and develop the minerals associated with the claim. It also 
identifies the steps the operator intends to take to minimize any 
adverse impacts of the mining operations on park resources and values. 
No information, except claim ownership information, is submitted unless 
the claimant wishes to conduct mining operations. The information 
required by Subpart B identifies the owner and operator (the owner and 
operator are often the same) and details how the operator intends to 
access and develop the oil and gas rights. It also identifies the steps 
the operator intends to take to minimize any adverse impacts on park 
resources and values. No information is submitted unless the owner 
wishes to conduct oil and gas operations. The information collected is 
used to evaluate proposed operations, ensure that all necessary 
mitigation measures are employed to protect park resources and values, 
and ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
