Project: Drug Abuse Warning Network (OMB No. 0930–0078)—Revision The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) is an ongoing data system that collects information on drug-related medical emergencies as reported from about 350 hospitals nationwide, and drug-related deaths as reported from 6 states and 135 medical examiners/ coroner jurisdictions (ME/C) in 35 metropolitan areas. DAWN provides national and metropolitan estimates of substances involved with drug-related emergency department (ED) visits; disseminates information about substances involved in deaths investigated by participating medical examiners and coroners (ME/Cs); tracks drug abuse patterns, trends, and the emergence of new substances; monitors post-market adverse drug incidents; assesses health hazards associated with the use of illicit, prescription, and overthe-counter drugs; and generates information for national and local drug abuse policy and program planning. DAWN data are used by Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as universities, pharmaceutical companies, and the media. From 2006 to 2008, DAWN will continue to recruit hospitals in the 13 oversampled metropolitan areas in order to improve the precision of estimates, adding approximately 18 hospitals to the sample. In 2007 and 2008, DAWN plans to recruit approximately 20 more ME/Cs from metropolitan areas that are currently profiled by DAWN, but have incomplete participation.

The study will include an assessment of the potential impact on industry, identify the regulations potentially requiring change, develop a regulatory implementation strategy and other work associated with the implementation of new passenger weight and size standards. DATES: This notice is effective October 27, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions regarding this notice of study, call William Peters, Office of Design and Engineering Standards (G– MSE–2), Coast Guard, at 202–267–2988, or send an e-mail to Wpeters@comdt.uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing or submitting material to the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–493–0402. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 6, 2004, the small passenger pontoon vessel M/V Lady D suddenly encountered high winds while underway and capsized in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, MD, resulting in several injuries and fatalities. In the course of its investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued Safety Recommendation M–04– 04, which recommended that the assumed passenger weight used for simplified stability proof tests on pontoon vessels be raised to more accurately reflect the weight of today’s population. The Coast Guard also identified this issue in its pontoon boat PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 stability study and concurred with the NTSB that the standard weight per person needs to be updated to account for the increase in the average weight of today’s population. Coast Guard current weight standards apply to all types of passenger vessels. As a result, the Coast Guard’s evaluation of the weight standard extends to all passenger vessel types, as opposed to only pontoon vessels. Recognizing that such a change could have an impact on industry, the environment and its own operations, the Coast Guard decided to engage a qualified consulting organization to perform an in-depth analysis. The contracting process was initiated in June 2005 and a contract was awarded on September 23, 2005. This one-year project will analyze the impact of increasing passenger weight and size on the domestic passenger vessel industry and recommend the best means by which improved standards could be implemented. The project will be completed in two phases, and will include the following elements: • Evaluate potential impacts to the domestic passenger vessel fleet caused by an increase in average passenger weight and size; • Identify the degree of impact on fleet segments; • Identify and suggest changes to existing regulations; • Develop efficient implementation strategies; and • Provide assistance for the development of draft regulatory changes E:\FR\FM\27OCN1.SGM 27OCN1

    The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) is an ongoing data system 
that collects information on drug-related medical emergencies as 
reported from about 350 hospitals nationwide, and drug-related deaths 
as reported from 6 states and 135 medical examiners/coroner 
jurisdictions (ME/C) in 35 metropolitan areas. DAWN provides national 
and metropolitan estimates of substances involved with drug-related 
emergency department (ED) visits; disseminates information about 
substances involved in deaths investigated by participating medical

the emergence of new substances; monitors post-market adverse drug 
incidents; assesses health hazards associated with the use of illicit, 
prescription, and over-the-counter drugs; and generates information for
