Download as PDF wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES 40720 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 137 / Tuesday, July 18, 2006 / Notices the criteria and NAAQS for ozone. This review includes preparation of two key documents, the Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants (‘‘Criteria Document’’) and a related ‘‘Staff Paper.’’ The purpose of the Staff Paper is to evaluate the policy implications of the key scientific and technical information contained in the Criteria Document and identify critical elements that EPA staff believe should be considered in reviewing the NAAQS. The Staff Paper is intended to ‘‘bridge the gap’’ between the scientific review contained in the Criteria Document and the public health and welfare policy judgments required of the Administrator in reviewing the NAAQS. In January 2005, a first external review draft of the Criteria Document was released by EPA for public review and comment and for review by the CASAC of EPA’s Science Advisory Board (70 FR 4850, January 31, 2005) at a public meeting held in May 2005. Comments received from review of the first draft document were considered in preparing the second draft Criteria Document released for public review and comment in August 2005 (70 FR 51810, August 31, 2005). Based on this document, the first Draft Staff Paper was released in November 2005 (70 FR 69761, November 17, 2005), and reviewed at a public meeting on December 8, 2005. Based on the information contained in the final Criteria Document, released in March 2006 (71 FR 10030, February 28, 2006), the second Draft Staff Paper includes assessments and analyses related to: (1) Air quality characterization; (2) integration and evaluation of health information; (3) exposure analysis; (4) health risk assessment; and (5) evaluation of information on vegetation damage and other welfare effects. The second Draft Staff Paper contains staff conclusions and options with respect to possible retention or revision of the current primary (health-based) and secondary (welfare-based) standards and identifies alternative standards for consideration by the Administrator. The draft Exposure Analysis, Risk Assessment and Environmental Assessment technical support documents describe and present the results from an ozone exposure analysis and health risk assessment in several urban areas, and the impact of ozone on the environment. Draft plans upon which these assessments are based, the Ozone Health Assessment Plan: Scope and Methods for Exposure Analysis and Risk Assessment and the Scope and Methods for Environmental Assessment Plan, were previously reviewed by CASAC and the public. Comments VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:08 Jul 17, 2006 Jkt 208001 received on those plans have been considered in developing the draft Exposure Analysis, Risk Assessment and Environmental Assessment technical support documents being released at this time. The exposure analysis, risk assessment, and environmental assessment methodologies and results are also discussed in the second Draft Staff Paper. The EPA is soliciting advice and recommendations from the CASAC by means of a peer review of the second Draft Staff Paper and drafts of the Exposure Analysis, Risk Assessment, and Environmental Assessment at an upcoming public meeting of the CASAC scheduled for August 24 and 25, 2006. A Federal Register notice will inform the public of the location of that meeting. Following the CASAC meeting, EPA will consider comments received from CASAC and the public in preparing a final Staff Paper and final Exposure Analysis, Risk Assessment, and Environmental Assessment technical support documents. Dated: July 13, 2006. Mary E. Henigin, Acting Director, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards. [FR Doc.

[FR Doc. 06–6351 Filed 7–14–06; 2:44 pm] Proposed Project Evaluation of the HIV Testing Social Marketing Campaign (HTSMC)—New— National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Coordinating Center for Infectious Diseases (CCID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). BILLING CODE 6210–01–S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Background and Brief Description This project involves the evaluation of the HIV Testing Social Marketing Campaign (HTSMC), a CDC-sponsored social marketing campaign aimed at increasing HIV testing rates among young, single, African American women. The CDC has designed an efficacy study to evaluate the HTSMC and its messages under controlled conditions. The study entails selecting a sample of single African American females, ages 18 to 34, with less than 4 years of college education and collecting baseline data on their knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, intentions, and behaviors related to HIV testing. The study represents an ‘‘efficacy’’ methodology in that participants will be divided into treatment and control Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [60Day-06–06BL] Proposed Data Collections Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call 404–639–5960 and conditions. Participants in the treatment condition, will be exposed to campaign materials including radio advertisements, a billboard, and an informational booklet that will be distributed over the Internet. Thus the study participants’ exposure will occur under controlled conditions, without the distractions and variability of potential exposure in the real world. As part of the advertisement stimuli package, the billboard advertisement will appear as part of the online log-in for each stimuli session in order to simulate the appearance of a sign. Therefore, we do not estimate any additional burden for exposure to the billboard advertisement. Key outcomes related to the HTSMC will be measured in two follow-up surveys. The first follow-up survey will occur 2 weeks after the baseline survey. The second follow-up survey will occur 6 weeks after the baseline survey. Comparisons of changes in these outcomes would then be made between participants in the treatment and control conditions. Findings from this study will be used by CDC and its partners to inform current and future program activities. We expect a total of 1,630 participants to complete the baseline survey. The 1,630 participants who complete the baseline survey will be randomly assigned to the treatment or control condition. 815 participants (the treatment condition) will be exposed to the radio ad and booklet. Of the 1,630 participants who completed the baseline survey, we expect 1,140 to complete the first follow-up survey. Of the 1,140 who complete the first follow-up survey, we expect 800 to complete the second follow-up survey, which will have fewer questions than the first follow-up survey because it will only pertain to questions about behavior change and selected behavioral intentions. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
