Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Emergency Comment Request; Housing Choice Voucher Program Administrative Fee Study Notice of Proposed Information Collection for Public Comment
Document Number: 2010-32684
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for emergency review and approval, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This request is for the clearance of on-site data collection from public housing agencies (PHAs). The proposed data collection has three purposes: (1) To identify a sample of PHAs that are verified to be operating high-performing and efficient HCV programs, (2) to test alternative methods of measuring time spent on administrative functions in the HCV program, and (3) to collect information on the factors that affect administrative costs in the HCV program. The proposed data collection will take place through site visits to 60 PHAs and will include interviews with PHA staff, interviews with program partners, and reviews of client files and administrative data collected by the PHA, included documentation related to the HCV program budget. In addition, at 5 of the 60 sites the research team will beta-test three alternative methods of collecting data on PHA staff time spent on the range of activities required to administer the HCV program. The results of the site visits and beta-tests will be used to develop the research design, sampling approach, and data collection instruments for a national study of the costs of administering the HCV program based on direct measurement of staff and other program costs among a sample of high-performing HCV programs. The results of this national studyfor which separate OMB clearance will be soughtwill be used to estimate administrative fees and develop a new administrative fee allocation formula for the HCV program.

Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services
Under the provisions of Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Center for Research Resources, the National Institutes of Health has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on October 12, 2010, pages 62543-62544, and allowed 60-days for public comment. No comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: The National Evaluation of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Initiative. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The CTSA Initiative is directed at transforming the way biomedical research is conducted nationwide by reducing the time it takes for basic science or laboratory discoveries to become treatments for patients, and for those treatments in turn to be incorporated and disseminated throughout community practice. The primary purpose of this data collection is to provide information about the process and early outcomes associated with 46 awardees participating in the first four cohorts of CTSA awards, in order to fulfill the congressional expectations for external program evaluation. NIH will use the results to understand the extent to which the CTSA Initiative is bringing about transformational changes in clinical and translational science among academic medical centers and their research partners, increasing the efficiency of the research process, and enhancing the capacity of the field to conduct clinical and translational research. All information collected will be used to provide analytical and policy support to NCRR, assisting NIH in making decisions about current CTSA programming, future funding, and other initiatives to improve clinical and translational science. It may also provide information for NIH's Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) report. Frequency of Response: Biennial. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Scientific researchers. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,563; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours Per Response: 0.13; Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 451.5.

Airworthiness Directives; Various Aviation Communication & Surveillance Systems (ACSS) Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) Units
Document Number: 2010-32658
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for various aircraft equipped with certain ACSS TCAS units. This proposed AD would require upgrading software. This proposed AD results from reports of anomalies with TCAS units during a flight test over a high density airport. The TCAS units dropped several reduced surveillance aircraft tracks because of interference limiting. We are proposing this AD to prevent TCAS units from dropping tracks, which could compromise separation of air traffic and lead to subsequent mid-air collisions.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, and -300ER Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-32657
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, and -300ER series airplanes. This proposed AD would require, for certain airplanes, replacing certain boost pump relays with ground fault interrupter (GFI) relays. For certain other airplanes, this proposed AD would require installing new panels in the main equipment center, making certain wiring changes, installing new GFI relays in the new panels, and installing new electrical load management system (ELMS) software. For certain other airplanes, this proposed AD would require doing certain bond resistance measurements, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fisheries; 2011 Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Specifications; Preliminary 2011 Quota Adjustments; 2011 Summer Flounder Quota for Delaware
Document Number: 2010-32656
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues final specifications for the 2011 summer flounder, scup, and black sea bass fisheries. This final rule specifies allowed harvest limits for both commercial and recreational fisheries, including commercial scup possession limits. This action prohibits Federally permitted commercial fishing vessels from landing summer flounder in Delaware in 2011 due to continued quota repayment from previous years' overages. The actions of this final rule are necessary to comply with regulations implementing the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP), as well as to ensure compliance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson- Stevens Act). The intent of this action is to establish harvest levels and other management measures to ensure that these species are not overfished or subject to overfishing in 2011. In addition, this action implements measures to ensure continued rebuilding of the summer flounder stock, which remains under a Magnuson-Stevens Act rebuilding program.

Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings
Document Number: 2010-32632
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is requesting comments regarding the calculation of the weighted average dumping margin and antidumping duty assessment rate in certain antidumping duty proceedings. Currently, in a review of an antidumping duty order conducted under 19 CFR 351.213 (administrative review), 351.214 (new shipper review), and 351.215 (expedited antidumping review) (collectively ``reviews''), the Department usually makes comparisons between transaction-specific export prices and average normal values and does not offset any dumping that is found with the results of comparisons for which the transaction-specific export price exceeds the average normal value. In addition, in the most recent original antidumping duty investigation in which the Department calculated the weighted average margins of dumping using transaction-to-transaction comparisons, the Department did not grant offsets for non-dumped comparisons. Several World Trade Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement reports have found that the United States application of these methodologies was inconsistent with our WTO obligations. In response to these reports, the Department proposes modification of its methodologies, including changes to certain provisions of the Department's regulations.
