of the agency's estimate of burden including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality,

and other forms of information technology.
    Comments regarding this information collection received by February 
27, 2013 will be considered. Written comments should be addressed to: 
Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of Information and Regulatory 
Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), New Executive Office

Forest Service

    Title: Objection to New Land Management Plans, Plan Amendments, and 
Plan Revisions
    OMB Control Number: 0596-0158.
    Summary of Collection: The process for submitting objections to new 
land management plans, plan amendments, and plan revisions is set forth 
in 36 CFR part 219, subpart B. An objector must provide their name, 
mailing address, telephone number, and identify the specific proposed 
plan, amendment, or revision that is the subject of the objection. This 
is the minimum information needed for a citizen or organization to 
explain the nature of and rational for objections to new land 
management plans, plan amendments, and plan revisions.
    This information must accompany a concise statement explaining how 
the environmental disclosure documents, if any, and proposed plan, 
amendment, or revision are inconsistent with law, regulation, Executive 
Order, or policy and any recommendations for change. The Reviewing 
Officer then reviews the objection(s) and relevant information and 
responds to the objector(s) in writing.
    Need and Use of the Information: The information collected 
(objections to new land management plans, plan amendments, and plan 
revisions) is analyzed and responded to by a Forest Service official. 
At times, this information is used to modify land and resource 
management planning decisions. Forest supervisors and regional forests 
that make decisions on land and resource management planning also use 
the information. Without this information, the agency's decision-making 
will suffer from a reduction in public input and agency relationships 
with the public will deteriorate.
    Description of Respondents: Individuals or households; Business or 
other for-profit; Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local or Tribal 
    Number of Respondents: 36.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Other (once).
    Total Burden Hours: 360.
