The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 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)). We have submitted a request to OMB to renew its approval of the collection of information for the annual certification of hunting and sport fishing licenses issued by States and Territories. 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. The OMB control number for this collection of information is 1018-0007.
The Service administers grant programs authorized by the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669-669b, 669-669k) and the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 777-777m). These Acts, and our regulations at 50 CFR 80.10, require that States annually certify their hunting and fishing license sales. The Service uses the information collected to determine apportionment and distribution of funds under these Acts. We are proposing minimal changes to the forms we use to collect this information.

We again invite comments on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on respondents, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.Start Signature
