SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal 
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The Acting Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office 
of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information 
collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each 
proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the 
following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, 
existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; 
(4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; 
(5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or 
Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment.

The individual contests will be submitted under this generic clearance
