    Abstract: EPA promulgated Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) under 
the Clean Air Act for Indian reservations located in Idaho, Oregon, and 
Washington in 40 CFR part 49 (70 FR 18074, April 8, 2005). The FIPs in 
the final rule, also referred to as the Federal Air Rules for Indian 
Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (FARR), include 
information collection requirements associated with the partial 
delegation of administrative authority to a Tribe in 40 CFR 49.122; the 
rule for limiting visible emissions at 40 CFR 49.124; fugitive 
particulate matter rule in 40 CFR 49.126; the wood waste burner rule in 
40 CFR 49.127; the rule for limiting sulfur in fuels in 40 CFR 49.130; 
the rule for open burning in 40 CFR 49.131; the rules for general open 
burning permits, agricultural burning permits, and forestry and 
silvicultural burning permits in 40 CFR 49.132, 49.133, and 49.134; the 
rule for emissions detrimental to human health and welfare in 40 CFR 
49.135; the registration rule in 40 CFR 49.138; and the rule for non-
title V operating permits in 40 CFR 49.139. EPA uses this information 
to manage the activities and sources of air pollution on the Indian 
reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. EPA believes these 
information collection requirements are appropriate because they will 
enable EPA to develop and maintain accurate records of air pollution 
sources and their emissions, track emissions trends and changes, 
identify potential air quality problems, allow EPA to issue permits or 
approvals, and ensure appropriate records are available to verify 
compliance with these FIPs. The information collection requirements 
listed above are all mandatory. Regulated entities can assert claims of 
business confidentiality and EPA will address these claims in 
accordance with the provisions of 40 CFR part 2, subpart B.

    Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of air emission 
sources in all industry groups and tribal governments, located in the 
identified Indian reservations.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory.
    Estimated number of respondents: 1,732 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annual or occasional.
    Total estimated burden: 3,601 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $286,888 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is decrease of 614 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease is based on input from source 
consultations, supersedence of the provisions of one rule (49.139), and 
information we have learned about the source universe through 
implementing the rules since the ICR was updated in 2018.
