We (National Park Service, NPS) will ask the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve an information collection (IC) described below. This is a renewal for a collection currently consisting of four forms (General Submission, Annual Review, Amendment, and Exhibitor Submission) used by the Institutional Animal Care and use Committee (NPS IACUC/the Committee) to ensure compliance with the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), its regulations (AWAR) and standards, and the Interagency Research Animal Committee (IRAC) principles for projects involving the use of vertebrate animals in research, teaching, and/or exhibition. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and as part of our continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, we invite the general public and other federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this IC. We may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.

Document Number: 2015-33144
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-01-13
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The National Park Service proposes to allow qualified subsistence users to collect and use nonedible fish and wildlife parts and plant materials for the creation and subsequent disposition (use, barter, or sale) of handicrafts. The rule would also (1) clarify that collecting or possessing living wildlife is generally prohibited and (2) limit the types of bait that may be used to take bears for subsistence uses.
