L. No. 111–5, 123 Stat. 115 (2009). NTIA established the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) to make available grants for deploying broadband infrastructure in unserved and underserved areas in the United States, enhancing broadband capacity at public computer centers, and promoting sustainable broadband adoption projects. The application requirements for the BTOP contained in the NOFA are an information collection subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. However, when the NOFA was submitted for publication, the collection of information had not yet been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Subsequently, NTIA received OMB approval for this collection of information. NTIA announces that the collection of information is approved under OMB Control Number 0660–0031, with an expiration date of January 31, 2010. This collection of information was approved by OMB in accordance with the emergency processing provisions under 5 CFR § 1320.13 to allow NTIA to fulfill its ARRA requirements. In the BTOP NOFA, NTIA requested public comments on the collection of information specifically for the BTOP Infrastructure, Public Computer Center, and Sustainable Adoption programs. (See 74 FR at 33128 – 33129). The comments requested will be utilized as a part of a request by NTIA, if it decides to continue to use this collection past the approved emergency request clearance time period. At that time, NTIA would resubmit a collection of information request to OMB in accordance with the review process provided in the regulations implementing the Paperwork Reduction Act. A specific comment deadline was inadvertently not included in the BTOP NOFA and is hereby announced in this notice. Comments are due by August 31, 2009. Dated: July 10, 2009. Kathy D.

Abstract

    In 1991, NGS adopted a policy that defines the conditions under 
which NAD 83 State Plane Coordinates (SPCs) would be published in feet 
in addition to meters. As outlined in that policy, each state or 
territory must adopt NAD 83 legislation (typically referenced as Codes, 
Laws or Statutes), which specifically defines a conversion to either 
U.S. Survey or International Feet as defined by the U.S. Bureau of 
Standards in 59 FR 5442. To date, 48 states have adopted the NAD 83 
legislation however, for various reasons, only 33 included a specific 
definition of the relationship between meters and feet. This lack of 
uniformity has led to confusion and misuse of SPCs as provided in 
various NGS products, services and tools, and created errors in 
mapping, charting and surveying programs in numerous states due to 
inconsistent coordinate conversions.
