Intent To Request Extension From OMB of One Current Public Collection of Information: Imposition and Collection of Passenger Civil Aviation Security Service Fees
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) invites public comment on one currently approved Information Collection Request (ICR), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number 1652-0001, abstracted below that we will submit to OMB for an extension in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its expected burden. The collection involves air carriers maintaining an accounting system for the passenger civil aviation security service fees collected and reporting this information to TSA on a quarterly basis, as well as retaining the data used for these reports for three fiscal years.
Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to modify a current DHS system of records titled, ``DHS/ALL-047 Records Related to DHS Personnel, Long-Term Trainees, Contractors, and Visitors During a Declared Public Health Emergency System of Records,'' and retitle it, ``DHS/ALL-047 Records Related to DHS Personnel, Long-Term Trainees, Contractors, Mission Support Individuals, and Visitors During a Declared Public Health Emergency System of Records.'' This system of records describes DHS's collection, use, and maintenance of records on individuals associated with DHS and its facilities during a declared public health emergency. DHS is updating this system of records to more clearly articulate the relevant authorities and purpose; modify the categories of individuals to include individuals who support DHS missions, but were outside the previously defined categories of individuals; modify the categories of records to include those records collected and disclosed in accordance with the requirements of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act); and add an additional routine use. This modified system will be included in DHS's inventory of record systems.
Procedures for Asylum and Withholding of Removal; Credible Fear and Reasonable Fear Review
On June 15, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (``DHS'') and the Department of Justice (``DOJ'') (collectively ``the Departments'') published a notice of proposed rulemaking (``NPRM'' or ``proposed rule'') that would amend the regulations governing credible fear determinations. The proposed rule would make it so that individuals found to have a credible fear will have their claims for asylum, withholding of removal under section 241(b)(3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (``INA'' or ``the Act'') (``statutory withholding of removal''), or protection under the regulations issued pursuant to the legislation implementing the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (``CAT''), adjudicated by an immigration judge within the Executive Office for Immigration Review (``EOIR'') in streamlined proceedings (rather than under section 240 of the Act), and to specify what standard of review applies in such streamlined proceedings. The Departments further proposed changes to the regulations regarding asylum, statutory withholding of removal, and withholding and deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture (``CAT'') regulations. The Departments also proposed amendments related to the standards for adjudication of applications for asylum and statutory withholding. This final rule (``rule'' or ``final rule'') responds to comments received in response to the NPRM and generally adopts the NPRM with few substantive changes.
