Arrington, IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES Federal Student Aid Type of Review: Revision. Title: Student Assistance General Provisions—Subpart K—Cash Management. Abstract: These regulations comprise the existing provisions of the Student Assistance General Provisions guidance regarding cash management. Information collection under these regulations relates to cash management requirements and practices for institutions participating in the Title IV, Higher Education Act (HEA), programs. This request is for approval of reporting and recordkeeping requirements contained in the attached final regulations related to the administrative requirements of the Regulations Governing the Student Assistance General Provisions as revised by the TEACH Grant final regulations. The information collection requirements in these regulations are necessary to determine eligibility to receive program benefits and to prevent fraud and abuse of program funds. Additional Information: The U.S. Department of Education (the Department) requests that OMB grant an emergency clearance of 1845–0038. This emergency clearance is necessary due to new burden created from regulatory changes resulting from 34 CFR 668.165, the new regulations for the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program. 34 CFR 668.165 requires institutions to notify recipients of when and the amount of their Teach Grant disbursements, in addition to their right to cancel or reduce their grant amount, as well as procedures the institution has adopted for the recipient to contact their school about cancellation or grant reduction. The associated information collection provisions relating to these requirements are accounted for in 1845– 0038. These regulatory changes resulted from public comments in response to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2008 (73 FR 15336). The Department requests emergency clearance by June 12, 2008 so it can implement procedures to make Teach Grants available by the statutory effective date of July 1, 2008. Frequency: On Occasion.

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Office of International Regimes and Agreements; Proposed Subsequent Arrangement Department of Energy. Notice of proposed subsequent arrangement. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This notice is being issued under the authority of Section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2160). The Department is providing notice of a proposed ‘‘subsequent arrangement’’ under the Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy between the United States and Argentina. This subsequent arrangement requests to downblend material subject to an earlier subsequent arrangement— published in the Federal Register July 9, 2004 (69 FR 41460)—to a different level than previously approved. Under the 2004 subsequent arrangement, Comision Nacional de Energia Atomica (CNEA) was approved to downblend material from 89.79% enriched into lowenriched uranium (LEU). Under a contract with DOE’s Global Threat Reduction Initiative program, CNEA has submitted the attached request to downblend 304 g of that material to 58% weight of isotope U235 rather than to LEU as originally approved. The material will be fabricated into test plates in Argentina and sent to Idaho National Laboratory for testing and irradiation. The material will remain in the United States after irradiation. In accordance with Section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, we have determined that this subsequent arrangement will not be inimical to the common defense and security. This subsequent arrangement will take effect no sooner than fifteen days after the date of publication of this notice.

EPI requests authorization to amend its certificate to remove the 1.34 mile ‘‘Lift and Lay’’ segment, retain the original pipeline, clarify the capacity of its existing and authorized facilities, and make three corrections to its pro forma tariff.

the attached proposed regulations related to the TEACH Grant 
administrative requirements for the Title IV, HEA programs. The 
information collection requirements in these proposed regulations are

the effective date for the TEACH Grant Program is July 1, 2008. The

regulations because the regular clearance process would not enable us 
to make an OMB-approved TEACH Grant available to participants by the

requests emergency clearance of the proposed regulations by June 12, 
2008, in order to obtain an OMB Control Number to be used in the TEACH
