SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 108 (a) of the Clean Air Act directs the Administrator to identify certain pollutants which ‘‘may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health and welfare’’ and to issue air quality criteria for them. These air quality criteria are to ‘‘accurately reflect the latest scientific knowledge useful in indicating the kind and extent of all identifiable effects on public health or welfare which may be expected from the presence of [a] pollutant in the ambient air * * *.’’ Under section 109 of the Act, EPA is then to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for each pollutant for which EPA has issued criteria. Section 109 (d) of the Act requires subsequent periodic review and, if appropriate, revision of existing air quality criteria to reflect advances in scientific knowledge on the effects of the pollutant on public health and welfare. EPA is also to revise the NAAQS, if appropriate, based on the revised criteria. Lead is one of six ‘‘criteria’’ pollutants for which EPA has established air quality criteria and NAAQS. On November 9, 2004 (69 FR 64926), EPA formally initiated its current review of the criteria and NAAQS for lead, requesting the submission of recent scientific information on specified topics. One of the next steps in this process was to prepare a project work plan for revision of the existing ‘‘Air Quality Criteria for Lead,’’ EPA–600/8– 83/028aF–dF (published in June 1986) and an associated supplement (EPA– 600/8–89/049F) published in 1990. Accordingly, a draft of EPA’s ‘‘Project Work Plan for Revised Air Quality Criteria for Lead’’ (NCEA–R–1465) was released on January 7, 2005, for public comment (70 FR 1439) and was discussed by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) via a publicly accessible March 28, 2005, teleconference consultation (70 FR 11629). On July 15, 2005 (70 FR 41007), several workshops were announced to discuss, with invited recognized scientific experts, initial draft materials that dealt with various lead-related VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 May 18, 2006 Jkt 208001 issues being addressed in the draft AQCD for lead. These workshops were held August 4–5, 16–18, and 17–19, 2005. The first external review draft of the Air Quality Criteria for Lead (EPA/ 600/R–05/144aA–bA) was announced in the Federal Register on December 2, 2005 (70 FR 72300). The CASAC Lead Review Panel reviewed the first external review draft at a public meeting on February 28 and March 1, 2006. EPA considered the comments of the CASAC review panel and of the public in drafting this ‘‘Air Quality Criteria for Lead, Second External Review Draft.’’ After the end of the comment period on the ‘‘Air Quality Criteria for Lead, Second External Review Draft,’’ the CASAC review panel will review the draft at a public meeting. Public comments received will be provided to the CASAC review panel. There will be a Federal Register notice to inform the public of the exact date and time of that CASAC meeting. Dated: May 3, 2006.

Proposed Project Customer Surveys Generic Clearance for the National Center for Health Statistics—New-National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description As part of a comprehensive program, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) plans to assess its customers’ satisfaction with the quality and relevance of the information it produces. NCHS will conduct voluntary customer surveys to assess strengths in agency products and services. Results of these surveys will be used in future planning initiatives. This is a request for a generic approval from OMB to conduct customer surveys over the next three years. The data will be collected using a combination of methodologies appropriate to each survey. These may include: Evaluation forms, mail surveys, focus groups, automated and electronic technology (e.g., e-mail, Web-based surveys), and telephone surveys. Systematic surveys of several groups will be folded into the program. Among these are Federal customers and policy makers, state and local officials who rely on NCHS data, the broader educational, research, and public health community, and other data users. The 2006 surveys will include: (1) A selfselected broad-based group of data users who register for and/or attend NCHS sponsored conferences and (2) all persons who access the NCHS Web site. Data items will include (in broad categories) information regarding an individual’s gender, age, occupation, affiliation, location, etc. The proposed questions will attempt to obtain information that will characterize the respondents’ familiarity with and use of NCHS data, their assessment of usefulness, general satisfaction with available services and products, and suggestions for improvement of services and products. There is no cost to respondents other than their time to participate in the survey. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 547. E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1
