Title: State Fiscal Stabilization Fund Grant Application. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11533 Abstract: On February 17, 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) became law. A major part of ARRA is the new State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (Stabilization) program. The program provides $53,600,000,000 to States to keep teachers in the classroom, prevent the cutting of valuable education programs, and help mitigate college tuition increases. Additionally, the Stabilization program will provide resources that States and districts may use to implement important education reforms, such as launching strategies that address inequities in the distribution of highly qualified teachers, building robust data systems that allow districts to better track student achievement, raising standards and strengthening student assessments, and turning around failing schools. We are requesting approval of the Stabilization program grant application so that State governors may apply for the first portion of these funds. Additional Information: In order to provide immediate assistance to help alleviate the substantial budget shortfalls that States are facing, the Department is committed to providing 67 percent of each State’s Stabilization allocation within a very short timeframe, necessitating emergency clearance of the Stabilization program application. The requested approval date for OMB approval is March 23. This formula grant program has two distinct portions—the Education Fund and the Government Services Fund. Specifically, the Department intends to award each State with 67 percent of the total amount that it is to receive under both the Education Fund and the Government Services Fund within two weeks of our receipt of a complete application. Frequency: One time. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit; State, Local or Tribal Gov’t. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 52. Burden Hours: 894.

Office of International Regimes and Agreements; Proposed Subsequent Arrangement SUMMARY: This notice has been 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 Between the United States of America and the Government of the Argentine Republic Concerning Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy and the Agreement Between the United States of America and Australia Concerning Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy. This subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 1.84 grams of uranium, 1.64 grams of which is in the isotope U–235, from the Comision Nacional De Energia Atomica (CNEA), Ezeiza, Argentina, to the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) in Lucas Heights, Australia. The material, which is currently in the form uranium ore concentrates (U3O8) and is located at CNEA’s Instrumentation and Control Department, will be transferred to ANSTO for use at the Australian Replacement Research Reactor as internal sensitive material of five fission counters. CNEA originally obtained the material from the United States under a general license. In accordance with Section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, we have determined that this subsequent arrangement is not 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.
