OMB No.: 0980–0271. Description: The information being collected is mandated by section 454(16) of the Social Security Act (the Act), which provides for the establishment and operation by State agencies, in accordance with an initial and annually updated Advance Planning Document (APD) approved under section 452(d) of the Act, of a statewide system meeting the requirements of section 454A of the Act. In addition, section 454A(e)(1) of the Act requires that States create a State Case Registry (SCR) within their statewide automated child support systems to include information on IV– D cases and non-IV–D orders established or modified in the State on or after October 1, 1998. Section 454A(e)(5) of the Act requires States to regularly update their cases in the SCR.

The data being collected for the APD are a combination of narratives, budgets and schedules, which are used to provide funding approvals on an annual basis and to monitor and oversee systems development. Child support has separate regulations under 45 CFR 307.15 related to submitted of APDs because the program had supplemental authority for enhanced funding for systems development, and has substantial penalties for noncompliance with the statutory deadline of October 1, 2000. This information collection reflects the fact that 52 states and Territories are now certified as meeting the automation requirements of the Family Support Act of 1988 (FSA) and the Personal Responsibilities and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 (PRWORA), leaving only two States that are not yet PRWORA systems certified and only one state that has not submitted an Implementation APD for compliance with PRWORA automation. States and Territories that opted to keep their APD for child support systems are covered under separate Information Collection, OMB No. 0992–0005, for 45 CFR part 95 subpart F. The data being collected for the SCR is used to transmit mandatory data elements to the FCR where it is used for matching against other databases for the purposes of location of individuals, assets, employment and other child support related activities.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Jul 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by August 23, 2007. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, FAX: 202–395–6974, or e-mailed to baguilar@omb.eop.gov. All comments should be identified with the OMB control number ‘‘0910–NEW’’ and title ‘‘Mental Models Study of Food Terrorism Risk Awareness.’’ Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonna Capezzuto, Office of the Chief Information Officer (HFA–250), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, 301–827– 4659. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Mental Models Study of Food Terrorism Risk Awareness (OMB Control Number 0910–NEW) The proposed information collection will help FDA protect the public from food terrorism by preparing the agency to take appropriate action in the event of a crisis. Under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938, as amended, FDA has authority to act to protect the safety of the nation’s food supply. Under title 42 of the Public Health Service Act (1944), FDA has authority to act to protect the public health. In addition, title III of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (Public Law 107–188), FDA has authority to act to improve the ability of the United States to prevent, prepare for, and respond to terrorism and other public health emergencies. PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40309 FDA has crafted and disseminated messages intended to raise the awareness of state and local government agency and industry representatives regarding food defense issues and preparedness; but, FDA does not currently have similar initiatives for consumers. Extensive research exists in disaster preparedness and in effective communication to the public of risk or crisis information by government or non-government entities. However, additional research is needed to help FDA design communications that will increase consumer awareness of the potential for food terrorism and help consumers to make good decisions in the event of a food terrorism emergency. The project will use ‘‘mental modeling,’’ a qualitative research method wherein the decisionmaking processes of a group of consumer respondents (described in the next paragraph) concerning food terrorism are modeled and compared to a model based on expert knowledge and experience in food terrorism. The information will be collected via a telephone interview concerning the factors that influence the perceptions and motivations related to the threat of food terrorism. A comparison between expert and consumer models based on the collected information may identify ‘‘consequential knowledge gaps’’ that can be redressed through messages or information campaigns designed by FDA. Description of Respondents: Respondents will be adult parents over the age of 18 who have at least one child age 4 to 13 residing in the home at least half-time. The sample will be divided by gender. In the Federal Register of March 30, 2007 (72 FR 15140), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received.

    Title: Computerized Support Enforcement Systems--NPRM.
    OMB No.: 0980-0271.
    Description: The information being collected is mandated by section 
454(16) of the Social Security Act (the Act), which provides for the 
establishment and operation by State agencies, in accordance with an 
initial and annually updated Advance Planning Document (APD) approved 
under section 452(d) of the Act, of a statewide system meeting the 
requirements of section 454A of the Act. In addition, section 
454A(e)(1) of the Act requires that States create a State Case Registry 
(SCR) within their statewide automated child support systems to include 
information on IV-D cases and non-IV-D orders established or modified 
in the State on or after October 1, 1998. Section 454A(e)(5) of the Act 
requires States to regularly update their cases in the SCR.
    This notice reflects the new transactions set for SCR to Federal 
Case Registry (FCR) transactions where States are encouraged, but not 
required, to submit data from their SCR to the FCR.
    The data being collected for the APD are a combination of 
narratives, budgets and schedules, which are used to provide funding 
approvals on an annual basis and to monitor and oversee systems 
development. Child support has separate regulations under 45 CFR 307.15 
related to submitted of APDs because the program had supplemental 
authority for enhanced funding for systems development, and has 
substantial penalties for noncompliance with the statutory deadline of 
October 1, 2000. This information collection reflects the fact that 52 
states and Territories are now certified as meeting the automation 
requirements of the Family Support Act of 1988 (FSA) and the Personal 
Responsibilities and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 (PRWORA), leaving 
only two States that are not yet PRWORA systems certified and only one 
state that has not submitted an Implementation APD for compliance with 
PRWORA automation. States and Territories that opted to keep their APD 
for child support systems are covered under separate Information 
Collection, OMB No. 0992-0005, for 45 CFR part 95 subpart F.
    The data being collected for the SCR is used to transmit mandatory 
data elements to the FCR where it is used for matching against other 
databases for the purposes of location of individuals, assets, 
employment and other child support related activities.
    Respondents: State and Territorial Child Support Agencies.
