I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is seeking renewal of the 
approval for the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 166, 
Grazing Permits, related to grazing on tribal land, individually-owned 
Indian land, or government land. This information collection allows BIA 
to obtain the information necessary to determine whether an applicant 
is eligible to acquire, modify, or assign a grazing permit on trust or 
restricted lands and to allow a successful applicant to meet bonding 
requirements. Some of this information is collected on forms.

II. Request for Comments

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs requests your comments on this 
collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection 
for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy 
of the agency's estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the 
burden of collecting information from respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. 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.
