(b) Two comments encouraged the Corporation to retain the current Progress Report submission schedule of semi-annually to help ensure that Senior Corps grantees provide current data at a higher frequency than annual.

SUMMARY: The Department of Defense is submitting to OMB for emergency clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). A shortened comment period of twelve days is necessary because the collection of information related to the repeal of ‘‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’’ is needed prior to the submission of recommendations from the Department of Defense to the White House. The initial report on the impact of the repeal of the law on spousal family readiness and perceived unit stability and cohesion is needed by mid-September 2010. As data collection procedures needed to ensure high response rates require a 2 month field period, it is necessary to begin data collection procedures no later than midJuly. DATES: Consideration will be given to all comments received by June 30, 2010. Title and OMB Number: Survey for Military Family Members, OMB Control Number 0704–TBD. Type of Request: New. Number of Respondents: 150,000. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 50,000. Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes. Annual Burden Hours: 75,000 hours. Needs and Uses: The Department of Defense Comprehensive Review Working Group (CRWG) is the working group the Secretary of Defense directed to examine the issues associated with a repeal of the law known as ‘‘Don’t Ask, PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 Don’t Tell.’’ The CRWG is studying what impact, if any, repeal would have on military readiness, military effectiveness, unit cohesion, recruiting, retention, and family readiness. As part of these efforts, the CRWG will also look at how best to manage any impacts during implementation. The survey is an opportunity for the families of service members to share their feelings on the issue with the CRWG and the military’s senior leadership. The survey is a critical part of the CRWG’s efforts as military families are an essential part of the military community and their reactions to the repeal of ‘‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’’ could have significant influence on the behavior of their spouses and the impact of repeal on recruiting, retention, and family readiness. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One-time. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. OMB Desk Officer: Ms. Jasmeet Seehra. Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Ms. Seehra at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
