The USPTO believes that it will take the same amount of time to complete the surveys whether they are completed on paper and mailed to the USPTO or completed and submitted electronically. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 140 hours per year. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $17,080 per year. The USPTO estimates that 31% of the respondents completing these surveys will be lawyers, about 9% will be legal assistants, and 60% will have diverse occupations. Using the professional hourly rate of $325 for intellectual property lawyers, a legal assistant specializing in intellectual property rate of $100, and a rate of $20 for the majority of the respondents, the USPTO believes that the average hourly rate for completing these surveys will be approximately $122 ($101 + $9 + $12). The professional rate used for the intellectual property lawyers is based on the median rate for attorneys in private firms as published in the 2009 report of the Committee on Economics of Legal Practice of the American Intellectual Property Law Association. This report summarized the results of a survey with data on hourly billing rates. The estimated hourly rate used for the legal assistants specializing in intellectual property is based on the rates for the 2008 National Utilization and Compensation Survey, published in March 2008 by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). Due to the many different occupations that can possibly be held by the majority of respondents, the USPTO is estimating $20 per hour as the hourly rate for those respondents. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that the salary costs for the respondents completing these surveys will be $17,080.

option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-
purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the 
designation of new ``usage-driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users 
located within a grantee's ``service area'' in the context of the 
Board's standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone 
project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the 
Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on May 21, 2010.
    FTZ 46 was approved by the Board on January 12, 1979 (Board Order

relocated and expanded (Board Order 720, 59 F.R. 66891, December 28, 
1994). The zone was further expanded on December 15, 1997 (Board Order 
943, 62 FR 67044, December 23, 1997), December 15, 1999 (Board Order 
1070, 64 F.R. 72643, December 28, 1999) and December 29, 2000 (Board 
Order 1135, 66 F.R. 3985, January 17, 2001).

acres)--Avon Products, Inc., 175 Progress Place, Springdale (Hamilton 
County); Site 2 (122 acres)--Cincinnati Machine, 4701 Marburg Avenue,
