Program, as authorized by Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act.
    3. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    4. How often the collection is required: One time or as-needed.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: 32 Agreement States who 
have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with NRC.
    6. An estimate of the number of responses: 134.
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 32 Agreement States.
    8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 1005 (7.5 hours per response).

applies: Not applicable.
    10. Abstract: Agreement States are asked on a one-time or as-needed 
basis, e.g., to respond to a specific incident, to gather information 
on licensing and inspection practices and other technical statistical 
information. The results of such information requests, which are 
authorized under Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act, are utilized 
in part by NRC in preparing responses to Congressional inquiries. 
Agreement State comments are also solicited in the areas of proposed 
procedure and policy development.
