SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction
Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies
with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and
continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact
of our information collection requirements and minimize the public's
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information
collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired
format.
    On February 8, 2019, we published a Federal Register notice
soliciting comments on this collection of information for 60 days,
ending on April 9, 2019 (84 FR 2920). We did not receive any comments
in response to the notice.
    We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR described
below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the
following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper
functions of the NPS; (2) will this information be processed and used
in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how
might the NPS enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and (5) how might the NPS minimize the
burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use
of information technology.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of
public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request
to OMB to approve this ICR. Before including your address, phone
number, email address, or other personal identifying information in
your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--including
your personal identifying information--may be made publicly available
at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your
personal identifying information from public review, we cannot
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
    Abstract: The NPS is authorized by the Lacey Act (18 U.S.C. 42, 16
U.S.C. 3371-3378 et seq.) to deter the possession and transport of
zebra/quagga mussels which are listed as an invasive species under this
legislation. To comply with this directive, the NPS is requesting
approval to collect information from recreational boaters entering or
exiting water areas managed by the agency to prevent the spread of
quagga/zebra mussels through the movement of trailered watercraft. This
data is necessary to document the presence of invasive species and
evaluate any risks associated with the unintentional introduction of
quagga/zebra mussels in waters managed by the NPS. The information
collection will be administered on boat ramps using a mobile
application to be filled out by NPS staff using a tablet, smartphone,
or similar device. Collection of this information is mandatory for all
watercrafts entering and exiting waters managed by the NPS that
participate in Watercraft Inspection and Decontamination programs.
