SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The following information is provided for the information collection:

Title: Permits for Recreation on Public Lands (43 CFR part 2930).

Forms: Form 2930-1, Special Recreation Permit Application.

OMB Number: 1004-0119.

Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved information collection.

Abstract: This notice pertains to information collections that are necessary for the management of recreation on public lands. The BLM is required to manage commercial, competitive and organized group recreational uses of the public lands, and individual use of special areas. This information allows the BLM to collect the required information to authorize and collect fees for recreation use on public lands. The currently approved information collection consists of the collection of non-form information in accordance with 43 CFR part 2930, and Form 2930-1 (Special Recreation Permit Application and Permit). We are proposing to revise Form 2930-1 to be used only as a Special Recreation Permit Application. Responses are required to obtain or retain a benefit.

Frequency of Collection: On occasion for all aspects of this information collection.

Annual Burden Hours: 14,776, based on 4 hours per response; 3,694 responses.

Annual Non-Hour Burden Cost: There are no processing fees associated with this collection.

60-Day Notice: As required in 5 CFR 1320.8(d), the BLM published the 60-day notice in the Federal Register on March 25, 2010 (75 FR 14458) soliciting comments from the public and other interested parties. The comment period closed on May 24, 2010. The BLM received one comment. The comment did not address, and was not germane to, this information collection; rather, it was a general invective about the Department of the Interior and the BLM. Therefore, we have no response to the comment.Start Printed Page 51284

The BLM requests comments on the following subjects:

1. Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will have practical utility;

2. The accuracy of the BLM's estimate of the burden of collecting the information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

3. The quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and

4. How to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology.

Please send comments to the addresses listed under ADDRESSES. Please refer to OMB Control Number 1004-0119 in your correspondence.
