DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

Immigration and Naturalization Service

 
Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

ACTION: Notice of information collection under review; application for 
naturalization.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service 
(INS) has submitted the following information collection request for 
review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995.
    The INS published a Federal Register notice on October 16, 1998 at 
63 FR 55643 to solicit public comments for a 60-day period regarding an 
initial draft revision of this collection (Form N-400). In order to 
encourage more comments, the INS published a second Federal Register 
notice on January 8, 1999 at 64 FR 1219, exhibiting a draft of the 
revised form and soliciting public comments for an additional 60 days. 
During the two comment periods a total of 20 organizations and 
individuals submitted comments concerning the proposed revisions to the 
Form N-400. The comments were reviewed and reconciled by the 
responsible program office and this proposed form as now published in 
the Federal Register for information purposes only, incorporates the 
additional suggestions and changes recommended by interested parties.
    The public is reminded that the current Form N-400 dated January 
15, 1999, must be used until OMB approves the revision of this form and 
INS announces the implementation date for use of the revised Form N-
400.
    The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 60 days for 
public comments on the proposed revised form to ensure compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act. Comments are encouraged and will be 
accepted until August 28, 2000. This process is conducted in accordance 
with 5 CFR 1320.10.
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Office of 
Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Attention: Lauren Wittenberg, Department of Justice Desk Officer, Room 
10235, Washington, DC 20530; 202-395-4718.
    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected 
agencies concerning the proposed collection of information should 
address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Overview of this information collection:
    (1) Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently 
approved collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Application for Naturalization.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the

    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals or Households. The 
information collected is used by the INS to determine eligibility for 
naturalization.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 700,000 
responses at 6 hours per response.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: 4,200,000 annual burden hours.
