SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose and Background The fee schedule for sanitation inspections of passenger cruise ships inspected under the Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) was first published in Average cost per inspection = The average cost per inspection is multiplied by a size/cost factor to determine the fee for vessels in each size category. The size/cost factor was established in the proposed fee schedule published in the Federal Register on July 17, 1987 (52 FR 27060), and was revised twice and published in the Federal Register on November 28, 1989 (54 FR 48942), and November 21, 2005 (70 FR 70078). The revised size/cost factor is presented in Appendix A. 46915 the Federal Register on November 24, 1987 (52 FR 45019), and CDC began collecting fees on March 1, 1988. Since then, CDC has published the fee schedule annually. This notice announces fees effective October 1, 2006. Total cost of VSP Weighted number of annual inspections. e Fee Applicability The fee schedule (Appendix A) will be effective October 1, 2006, through September 30, 2007. If travel expenses continue to increase, the fees may need adjustment before September 30, 2007, because travel constitutes a sizable portion of VSP’s costs. If an adjustment is necessary, a notice will be published in the Federal Register 30 days before the effective date The fees will apply to all passenger cruise vessels for which inspections are conducted as part of CDC’s VSP. Dated: August 8, 2006. James D. Seligman, Chief Information Officer, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

OMB No.: 0970–0229. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting comments on plans to implement a third grade follow-up to the Head Start Impact Study. This study will collect information for determining, on a national basis, how Head Start affects outcomes in the third grade for children who participated in the program as compared to children not enrolled in Head Start and to determine under which conditions Head Start works best and for which children. The Head Start Impact Study was a longitudinal study that involved approximately 5,000 first-time-enrolled three- and four-year-old pre school children across 84 nationally representative grantee/delegate agencies (in communities where there were more eligible children and families than can be served by the program). The participating children were randomly assigned to either a Head Start group (that could enroll in Head Start services) or a control group (that could not enroll in Head Start services but could enroll in other available services selected by their parents). Data collection for the study began in the fall of 2002 and extended through spring 2006. It is the intention of the Administration for Children and Families to examine outcomes for this sample of children and families during the spring of the children’s third grade year. Data will be collected in the spring of 2007 (for the four-year-old cohort) and the spring of 2008 (for the threeyear-old cohort). The domains for development to be assessed include demographic characteristics of the children and families, as well as children’s cognitive development, school achievement and adjustment, socio-emotional functioning, health and access to health care, and relationships with peers. Information will also be collected on parents’ involvement in educational activities, mental health and well-being, and monitoring and other parenting practices, and information related to the characteristics and quality of the schools and classrooms that children attend.
