The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. The 2012 and 2013 NSDUHs will continue conducting a follow-up clinical interview with a subsample of approximately 1,500 respondents. The design of this Mental Health Surveillance Study (MHSS) is based on the recommendations from a panel of expert consultants convened by the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), SAMHSA, to discuss mental health surveillance data collection strategies. The goal is to create a statistically sound measure that may be used to estimate the prevalence of Serious Mental Illness (SMI) among adults (age 18+). For the 2012 and 2013 NSDUHs, no questionnaire changes are proposed. As with all NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2012 and 2013 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. The total annual burden estimate is shown below: ESTIMATED ANNUAL BURDEN FOR 2012/2013 NSDUH Responses per respondent No. of respondents Instrument Hours per response Total burden hours Hourly wage rate Annualized hourly costs Household Screening ...............................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    Under Coast Guard regulation 33 CFR 151.53(b), the Coast Guard 
announces the May 1, 2011 date for entry into effect of discharge 
requirements from ships in the WCR SA. The WCR is defined in 33 CFR 
151.06(a)(12). As of May 1, 2011, the discharge restrictions for SAs 
set forth in 33 CFR 151.71 will be applicable to the WCR SA.
    In accordance with the provisions of regulation 5(4)(b) found in 
MARPOL Annex V, the United States, along with a sufficient number of 
WCR States that are parties to MARPOL, submitted notices on the 
availability of adequate reception facilities in the region to the 
International Maritime Organization's (IMO) Marine Environment 
Protection Committee (MEPC) at a meeting of the MEPC in March, 2010. 
During the meeting the WCR States requested that the MEPC establish a 
date for the entry into effect of the WCR SA. The MEPC noted the 
information provided by Member States in the WCR SA, to include the 
United States, and decided that the requirements for sufficient 
notification of adequate reception facilities for the WCR SA had been 
met. The MEPC adopted resolution MEPC.191(60) and the IMO Secretariat 
transmitted the text of the resolution to all interested parties via 
Circular Letter No.3053 dated April 14, 2010. These documents are 
available on the IMO's Web site at http://www.imo.org.
    As a party to MARPOL Annex V, the United States proposed to the 
IMO's MEPC to establish the Gulf of Mexico as an SA under MARPOL Annex 
V in September 1990. The country of Venezuela submitted an amendment to 
the proposal to include the WCR along with the Gulf of Mexico as an SA 
under MARPOL Annex V in November 1990. The MEPC adopted the proposal to 
establish the WCR SA, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean 
Sea, in July 1991. The SA entered into force in April 1993, and MARPOL 
Annex V discharge requirements for the SA will enter into effect May 1, 
2011. When the discharge requirements in regulation 5 of MARPOL Annex V 
enter into effect for the WCR SA, the discharge restrictions in 33 CFR 
151.71 will also enter into effect. These regulations state that no 
person may discharge garbage from a ship except food wastes. The 
disposal of food wastes into the sea shall be made as far as 
practicable from land, but in any case not less than 12 nautical miles 
from the nearest land. Food wastes comminuted or ground and capable of 
passing through a screen with openings no greater than 25 mm may be 
discharged not less than 3 nautical miles from the nearest land.
    The Coast Guard intends to update the list of SAs, in accordance 
with 33 CFR 151.53(b), to include where discharge restrictions are 
effective in a separate rule change.
