Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 70577-70578 [E7-24011]

Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 238 / Wednesday, December 12, 2007 / Notices initiative involves the Army’s transition from a division-centric design to a standard brigade organization. The reshaping of the military force structure also includes provision for the return of units currently based overseas to United States installations as part of the GDPR. Finally, discretionary stationing actions (activations, inactivations, realignments, and relocations) are proposed, which contribute to and are interrelated with the transformation process. All BRAC and other transformation actions will collectively result in an increase of approximately 16,600 military, civilian, student and contractor personnel. Alternative A would also meet the Army transformation purpose and need, but it is not the preferred option due to the magnitude of impacts on the Redcockaded woodpecker (RCW) (Picoides borealis), federally-listed endangered species. The No Action Alternative would not meet the Army’s purpose and need for the BRAC 2005 and transformation actions. Special consideration was given to the effects of Alternative A and Alternative B (the Preferred Alternative) of the Proposed Action on the natural and human environment. Mitigation measures have been adopted to avoid or minimize environmental harm from the selected alternative. Mitigation measures, as described in the ROD, will be implemented to minimize, avoid, or compensate for the significant adverse effects identified in the EIS at Fort Benning for transportation, noise, water resources, geology and soils, biological resources, cultural resources, and safety. In addition, the Army evaluated national defense needs, the synergistic relationship between BRAC, AMF, GDPR, and stationing actions, as well as meeting the purpose and need for the BRAC 2005 recommendations to include the creation of the Maneuver Center of Excellence. The ROD states that implementing the Preferred Alternative reflects a proper balance between initiatives for protection of the environment, appropriate mitigation, and actions to achieve the Army’s requirements. There are no differences in impacts to resources such as aesthetics and visual, socioeconomics, transportation, utilities, noise, hazardous and toxic materials and waste, utilities, and safety between Alternatives A and B. Alternative A does impact fewer acres, thus disturbing a lesser area of soils (and indirectly producing less fugitive dust that impacts air quality). Biological resources such as vegetation, wildlife, aquatic habitats, and unique ecological areas would also be impacted to a lesser degree, and fewer cultural resources VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:54 Dec 11, 2007 Jkt 214001 would be affected. Nevertheless, under Alternative A there would be a greater number of RCWs impacted if it were implemented. In the Biological Opinion, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service concurred that the preferred alternative is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of the RCW and relict trillium. Moreover, the Preferred Alternative does not introduce any greater impacts to other resources that cannot be mitigated when compared to Alternative A. Dated: December 3, 2007. Addison D. Davis, IV, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Environment, Safety and Occupational Health).

The High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) is the most recent installment in the series of NCES’ nationally representative longitudinal studies of high school students. The HSLS:09 will assess students in math and science during the fall of their 9th grade year and again in the spring of most participating students’ 11th grade year. The study will also survey students, their parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and school administrators twice during the secondary school years and follow students into their postsecondary years. The study will focus on how students navigate the transition between high school and the postsecondary world; what courses, majors (or first job), and careers students decide to pursue, when, why, and how. Additional Information: To meet the timeline for the HSLS:09, the Department is requesting an emergency clearance. This unanticipated event occurred since the contract was not awarded until July 6, 2007. The field test is slated to begin in Fall of 2008, which is only a year from now. The fullscale data collection is scheduled to PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 commence in the Fall of 2009. To ensure that the study remains on track and on time, sampling must be completed in January 2008 and school recruiting for the field test must begin by February 2008 at the very latest. The field test is scheduled to start September of 2008, and the six-month lead time should be sufficient for review and revision of the instruments before we enter schools. Frequency: One time.
