Filers may be asked to submit corrections or further information as necessary for compliance with the rules; and (11) Minor conforming and clarifying rule changes proposed in the Notice are adopted. The only changes entailing increased information collection are the requirement that parties making permissible ex parte presentations in restricted proceedings file an ex parte notice, and that ex parte notices contain either a summary of the presentation or a reference to where the information can be found in the written record, and that ex parte notices list all persons attending the presentation. The information is used by parties to permit-but-disclose proceedings, including interested members of the public, to respond to the arguments made and data offered in the presentations. The responses may then be used by the Commission in its decision-making. The availability of the ex parte materials ensures that the Commission’s decisional processes are fair, impartial, and comport with the concept of due process in that all interested parties can know of and respond to the arguments made to the decision-making officials.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No.: 3060–0855. OMB Approval Date: 10/14/2011. Expiration Date: 10/31/2014. Title: Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets and Related Collections, FCC Forms 499–A and 499–Q. Form No.: FCC Forms 499–A and 499–Q. Estimated Annual Burden: 8,183 respondents; 46,957 responses; .25 hours to 25 hours per response; 313,881 burden hours per year; $0 annual cost burden. Obligation to Respond: Mandatory. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in sections 151, 154(i), 154(j), 155, 157, 201, 205, 214, 225, 254, 303(r), 715 and 719 of the Act, 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 154(j), 155, 157, 201, 205, 214, 225, 254, 303(r), 616, and 620. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission will allow respondents to certify that data contained in their submissions is privileged or confidential commercial or financial information and that disclosure of such information would likely cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the entity filing the FCC worksheets. If the Commission receives a request for or proposes to disclose the information, the respondent would be required to make the full showing pursuant to the Commission’s rules for withholding from public inspection information submitted to the Commission. Needs and Uses: On October 7, 2011, the Commission released the Contributions to the Telecommunications Relay Services Fund Report and Order (Report and Order) FCC 11–150, adopting rules to implement section 715 of the Act. The Report and Order takes the following actions: Requires non-interconnected voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) service providers with interstate enduser revenues that are subject to contribution to the Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) Fund to register with the Commission, designate a District of Columbia agent for service of PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 process, annually file FCC Form 499–A, and contribute to the TRS Fund; extends the 64.9 percent safe harbor provision for calculating interstate end-user revenues to non-interconnected VoIP service providers; maintains interstate end-user revenues as the basis for calculating TRS Fund contributions; requires no contributions to the TRS Fund by non-interconnected VoIP service providers that offer services for free and have zero interstate end-user revenues. The modification is to apply the registration and annual filing requirement for FCC Form 499–A to non-interconnected VoIP service providers, pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 1, 4(i), (4)(j), 225, and 715 of the Act, as amended 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 154(j), 225, and 616; and 47 CFR 64.601 through 64.613 of the Commission’s rules. The application of the FCC Form 499–A to carriers, interconnected VoIP service providers, and noninterconnected VoIP service providers, is needed to administer the Universal Service Fund, the TRS Fund, and the cost recovery mechanism for numbering administration and long-term number portability. FCC Form 499–Q and its instructions remain unchanged. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, Office of the Secretary, Office of Managing Director.

Proposed Project HIV Prevention Among Latino MSM: Evaluation of a Locally Developed Intervention—New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Latinos are the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority group in the U.S. and have the second highest rate of HIV/AIDS diagnoses of all racial/ethnic groups in the country. From the beginning of the epidemic through 2007, Latinos accounted for 17% of all AIDS cases reported to the CDC. Among Latino males, male-to-male sexual contact is the single most important source of HIV infection, accounting for 46% of HIV infections in U.S.-born Latino men from 2001 to 2005, and for more than one-half of HIV infections among South American, Cuban, and Mexican-born Latino men in the U.S. (CDC, 2007a; 2007b). In 2006, male-tomale sex accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among Latino males. Relative to other men who have sex with men (MSM), the rate of HIV infection among Latino MSM is twice the rate recorded among whites (43.1 vs. 19.6 per 100,000). Despite the high levels of infection risk that affect Latino MSM, no efficacious interventions to prevent infection by HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are available for this vulnerable population. CDC’s Prevention Research Synthesis group, whose role is to identify HIV prevention interventions that have met rigorous criteria for demonstrating evidence of efficacy, has not identified Number of respondents Type of respondent Form name Prospective Study Participant ...... Participant Screening Form ........ VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:10 Oct 24, 2011 Jkt 226001 PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 any behavioral interventions for Latino MSM that meet current efficacy criteria, and no such interventions are listed in CDC’s 2011 update of its Compendium of Evidence-Based HIV Behavioral Interventions (http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/ topics/research/prs/compendiumevidence-based-interventions.htm). There is an urgent need for efficacious, culturally congruent HIV/STD prevention interventions for Latino MSM. The purpose of this project is to test the efficacy of an HIV prevention intervention for reducing sexual risk among Latino men who have sex with men in North Carolina. The HOLA en Grupos intervention is a Spanishlanguage, small-group, 4-session intervention that is designed to increase consistent and correct condom use and HIV testing among Latino MSM and to affect other behavioral and psychosocial factors that can increase their vulnerability of HIV/STD infection. This study will use a randomized controlled trial design to assess the efficacy of the HOLA en Grupos intervention compared to a general health comparison intervention. CDC is requesting approval for a 3year clearance for data collection. The data collection system involves screening of potential study participants for eligibility, collection of participants’ contact information, and measures of intervention and comparison participants’ socio-demographic characteristics, health seeking actions, HIV/STD and substance use-related risk behaviors, and psychosocial factors at baseline before intervention delivery and 6 months after intervention delivery. An estimated 350 men will be screened for eligibility in order to enroll the 300 men required for the study. The baseline and the 6-month follow-up assessments will be similar. However, the 6-month assessment will ask study participants fewer questions because there is no need to ask all questions during both assessments. Collection of eligibility information from potential participants will require about 10 minutes; collection of baseline assessment information and participant contact information will require about 1 hour and 45 minutes; and collection of the 6-month follow-up assessment information will require about 1 hour. There is no cost to participants other than their time.
