In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), DoD announces the proposed extension of a public information collection requirement and seeks public comment on the provisions thereof. DoD invites comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of DoD, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved this information collection requirement for use through October 31, 2010. DoD proposes that OMB extend its approval for these collections to expire three years after the approval date.
Publication of Housing Price Inflation Adjustment Under 50 U.S.C. App. 531
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as codified at 50 U.S.C. App. 531, prohibits a landlord from evicting a servicemember (or the servicemember's family) from a residence during a period of military service except by court order. The law as originally passed by Congress applied to dwellings with monthly rents of $2,400 or less. The law requires the Department of Defense to adjust this amount annually to reflect inflation and to publish the new amount in the Federal Register. We have applied the inflation index required by the statute. The maximum monthly rental amount for 50 U.S.C. App. 531(a)(1)(A)(ii) as of January 1, 2010, will be $2,958.53.

In the Air Force's effort to make every attempt to allow the public an opportunity for providing their input, we have re-scheduled the scoping meetings to be held in Ruidoso and Ft. Sumner, NM. Furthermore, due to public interest and comments, The Air Force has decided to add three additional scoping meetings in New Mexico and Arizona for the Holloman AFB and Tucson International Airport Air Guard Station alternatives. This revised Notice of Intent is prepared to notify the public of the rescheduling and additional scoping meetings to be held in New Mexico and Arizona. Also, due to these additional scoping meetings the public comment period is extended to May 17, 2010.
