SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (We) has submitted a request to OMB to renew its approval of the collection of information related to the Federal Subsistence Regulations (50 CFR part 100) and their associated forms. We are requesting a 3-year term of approval for this information collection activity. Federal agencies 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.

Title VIII of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 3101) designates the Departments of the Interior as the key agency responsible for implementing the subsistence priority on Federal public lands for rural Alaska residents. This responsibility includes the establishment of permits for rural residents to participate in special hunts. In addition, our regulations at 50 CFR part 100.20 provide for the appeal of Federal Subsistence Board decisions by persons affected by those decisions.

On January 16, 2003, we published in the Federal Register (68 FR 2347) a notice informing the public that we are submitting the information collection described below to OMB for approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. We requested public comment on the forms for 60 days, ending March 17, 2003. By that date, we did not receive any comments.
