BILLING CODE 5001–06–P [FR Doc. 2010–26930 Filed 10–22–10; 8:45 am] 16:05 Oct 22, 2010 Jkt 223001 ACTION: The Department of the Army announces the availability of the ROD, which summarizes the decision on how to implement property disposal in accordance with the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 (the Base Closure Act), Public Law 101– 510, as amended, following the closure of Fort Monroe, Virginia. The Army has decided to implement its preferred alternative of early transfer of surplus non-reverting federal property to other entities for reuse. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and its implementing regulations, the Army prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) that includes the evaluation of the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of disposing of surplus Federal property that does not revert to the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the implementation by others of reasonable, foreseeable reuse alternatives for the entire property. Under the early transfer alternative, the Army can transfer and dispose of nonreverting property for redevelopment before environmental remedial actions have been completed. This method of early disposal, allowable under Section 120(h)(3)(C) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), would defer the CERCLA covenant requirement to complete all necessary environmental cleanup prior to the transfer of the remediated property. In this way, parcels could become available for redevelopment and reuse sooner under this disposal alternative than under any other. The Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia must concur with the deferral request for the nonreversionary property at Fort Monroe.

Abstract: NPSAS, a nationally representative study of how students and their families finance education PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 beyond high school, was first implemented by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 1987 and has been fielded every 3 to 4 years since.

NPSAS:12 will also serve as the base year study for the Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS) of first-time postsecondary students that will focus on issues of persistence, degree attainment, and employment outcome. Following the field test study in 2011, NCES will submit an Office of Management and Budget clearance package for the full scale. The NPSAS:12 field test sample will include about 300 institutions (full-scale sample about 1,670) and about 4,500 students (120,000 full-scale). Institution contacting for the field test begun in September 2010 (for full scale in September 2011), list collection will be conducted January through May 2011 (full-scale January through June 2012), and student data collection will take place March through June 2011 (full scale January through September 2012). Changes since the last NPSAS collection in 2008 include a new cohort of the (BPS) which will conduct follow-up studies in 2014 and 2017, and revised strata for institution sampling to reflect the recent growth in enrollment in forprofit 4-year institutions.
