Privacy Act of 1974; Revision of System of Records Notices 
 
Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), notice is hereby given that the Department of the Interior proposes to revise existing Privacy Act notices of systems of records. Sixteen Bureau of Land Management notices of records systems are being revised to clarify the fact that information on indebtedness to the Federal Government is included in the records, and to add routine disclosure to consumer reporting agencies to expedite and facilitate the collection of monies owed to the Bureau. One notice, LLM-12, is also being revised to add a routine use for disclosure of information in response to Congressional inquiries made on behalf of individuals. The routine disclosures are compatible with the purposes for which the systems of records are maintained. A listing of the system notices being revised follows, and complete revised system notices are published in their entirety below.
