• NOAA Seeks Comment on Applications for Membership on a National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council

    The U.S. Department of Commerce has submitted to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the U.S. Paperwork Reduction Act:

    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration;
    Title: Application Forms for Membership on a National Marine Sanctuary
    Advisory Council; OMB Control Number: 0648–0397.

    Section 315 of the U.S. National Marine Sanctuaries Act allows the Secretary of
    Commerce to establish one or more advisory councils to provide advice to
    Commerce regarding the designation and management of national marine
    sanctuaries. Advisory councils are individually chartered for each sanctuary to meet the needs of that sanctuary. Once an advisory council has been chartered, the sanctuary superintendent starts a process to recruit members for that council by
    providing notice to the public and requesting interested parties to apply for the available seat(s) (e.g., Research, Education) and position(s) (i.e., council
    member or alternate). The information obtained through this application
    process will be used to determine the qualifications of the applicant for membership on the sanctuary advisory council.

    Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent by June 19, 2015, to OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395–5806.
