    Abstract: Clean Air Act section 182 and EPA's regulations (40 CFR 
part 51, subpart S) establish the requirements for state and local I/M 
programs that are included in state implementation plans (SIPs). To 
provide general oversight and support to these programs, EPA requires 
that state agencies with basic and enhanced I/M programs collect two 
varieties of reports for submission to the Agency:
     An annual report providing general program operating data 
and summary statistics, addressing the program's current design and 
coverage, a summary of testing data, enforcement program efforts, 
quality assurance and quality control efforts, and other miscellaneous 
information allowing for an assessment of the program's relative 
effectiveness; and
     A biennial report on any changes to the program over the 
two-year period and the impact of such changes, including any 
deficiencies discovered and corrections made or planned.
    General program effectiveness is determined by the degree to which 
a program misses, meets, or exceeds the emission reductions committed 
to in the state's approved SIP, which, in turn, must meet or exceed the 
minimum emission reductions expected from the relevant performance 
standard, as promulgated under 40 CFR part 51, subpart S, in response 
to requirements established in section 182 of the Clean Air Act. This 
information is used by EPA to determine a program's progress toward 
meeting requirements under 40 CFR part 51, subpart S, and to provide 
background information in support of program evaluations. Additional 
information regarding the current renewal of this ICR as well as 
previous renewals can be found in Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0707.
    Form numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: State I/M program managers.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 51.366).
    Estimated number of respondents: 28 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annual and biennial.
    Total estimated burden: 2,408 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $152,544 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation and maintenance costs.
    Changes in estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.

Director, Regulatory Support Division.
