SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Correction
 In the Federal Register of January 2, 2020, in FR Doc. 2019-27998,
on page 45, in the third column:
 Replace ``we are seeking to revise this information
collection'' with ``we are seeking to renew and revise this information
collection'';
 Replace ``14,360 annual burden hours'' with ``1,436 annual
burden hours''; and
 Replace ``Estimated Total Annual Non-Hour Cost:
$2,100,000'' with ``Estimated Total Annual Non-Hour Cost: $4,200,000''.
 We are restating the entire Paperwork Reduction Act statement
(which was provided in Section V.J. of the preamble to the proposed
rule) here for the convenience of anyone who wishes to comment on the
information collection.
J. Paperwork Reduction Act
 OMB Control No. 1076-0104 currently authorizes the collections of
information related to petitions for Federal acknowledgment under the
Indian Reorganization Act (IRA) contained in 25 CFR part 83, with an
expiration of October 31, 2021. With this rulemaking, we are seeking to
renew and revise this information collection to include collections of
information related to petitions for Federal acknowledgment under the
Alaska IRA and 25 CFR part 82. The current authorization totals an
estimated 1,436 annual burden hours. This rule change would require a
revision to an approved information collection under the Paperwork
Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., for which the Department
is requesting OMB approval.
 OMB Control Number: 1076-0104.
 Title: Federal Acknowledgment as an Indian Tribe, 25 CFR 82 & 83.
 Brief Description of Collection: This information collection
requires entities seeking Federal recognition as an Indian Tribe to
collect and provide information in a documented petition evidencing
that the entities meet the criteria set out in the rule.
 Type of Review: Revision of currently approved collection.
 Respondents: Entities petitioning for Federal acknowledgment.
 Number of Respondents: 2 on average (each year).
 Number of Responses: 2 on average (each year).
 Frequency of Response: On occasion.
 Estimated Time per Response: (See table below).
 Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,872 hours.
 Estimated Total Annual Non-Hour Cost: $4,200,000.
 OMB Control No. 1076-0104 currently authorizes the collections of
information contained in 25 CFR part 83. If this proposed rule is
finalized, DOI estimates that the annual burden hours for respondents
(entities petitioning for Federal acknowledgment) will increase by
approximately 1,436 hours, for a total of 2,872 hours.

Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs.
