Information Collection Request

Title: State Access to the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund for

removal costs under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.

OMB Control Number: 1625-0068.

Summary: This information collection is the mechanism for a

Governor, or their designated representative, of a state to make a

request for payment from the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) in

an amount not to exceed $250,000 for removal cost consistent with the

National Contingency Plan required for the immediate removal of a

discharge, or the mitigation or prevention of a substantial threat of

discharge, of oil.

Need: This information collection is required by, 33 CFR part 133,

for implementing 33 U.S.C. 2712 (d) (1) of the Oil Pollution Act of

1990 (OPA 90). The information provided by the state to the NPFC is

used to determine whether expenditures submitted by the state to the

OSLTF are compensable, and, where compensable, to ensure the correct

amount of reimbursement is made by the OSLTF to the state. If the

information is not collected, the Coast Guard and the National

Pollution Funds Center will be unable to justify the resulting

expenditures, and thus be unable to recover costs from the parties

responsible for the spill when they can be identified.

Forms: None.

Respondents: Governor of a state or their designated


Frequency: On occasion.

Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated annual burden remains 3 hours a
