                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.
