SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which 
implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 
104-13), require that interested members of the public and affected 
agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and 
recordkeeping activities [see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)]. OSM has submitted the 
request to OMB to renew its approval for the collection of information 
found at 30 CFR part 882. OSM is requesting a 3-year term of approval 
for this information collection activity.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control number for this 
collection of information is 1029-0057, and may be found in OSM's 
regulations at 30 CFR 882.10. States and Tribes are required to respond 
to obtain a benefit.
    As required under 5 CFR 1320.8(d), a Federal Register notice 
soliciting comments on this collection was published on December 11, 
2012 (77 FR 73674). No comments were received. This notice provides the 
public with an additional 30 days in which to comment on the following 
information collection activity:
    Title: 30 CFR part 882--Reclamation on Private Land.
    OMB Control Number: 1029-0057.
    Summary: Public Law 95-87 authorizes Federal, State, and Tribal 
governments to reclaim private lands and allows for the establishment 
of procedures for the recovery of the cost of reclamation activities on 
privately owned lands. These procedures are intended to ensure that 
governments have sufficient capability to file liens so that certain 
landowners will not receive a windfall from reclamation.
