The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Title: National Estuaries Restoration Inventory.

OMB Control Number: 0648-0479.

Form Number(s): NA.

Type of Request: Regular submission (revision and extension of a current information collection).

Number of Respondents: 31.

Average Hours per Response: New entries into project database, 4 hours; updates, 2 hours.

Burden Hours: 103.

Needs and Uses: This request is for revision and extension of a currently approved information collection.

Collection of estuary habitat restoration project information (e.g., Start Printed Page 38687location, habitat type, goals, status, monitoring information) will be undertaken in order to populate a restoration project database mandated by the Estuary Restoration Act of 2000. The database is intended to provide information to improve restoration methods, provide the basis for required reports to Congress, and track estuary habitat acreage restored. Estuary habitat restoration project information will be submitted by habitat restoration project managers and will be accessible to the public via Internet for data queries and project reports.

Revision: The collection method has been revised to only include paper or fillable Adobe forms, instead of web-based data entry forms, as maintaining the web-based data entry option is not cost-effective.

Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions.

Frequency: Annually and on occasion.

Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
