Corrections Statistics Unit, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice. (4) Affected public who will be asked to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: State Departments of Corrections authorities. Others: Authorities from the Federal Bureau of Prisons and administrators of privatelyoperated prison facilities. The Census of State and Federal Correctional Facilities obtains information on individual facilities designed to house adults sentenced to confinement by State, Federal, or District of Columbia courts. These facilities include prisons, penitentiaries, and correctional institutions; boot camps; prison farms; reception, diagnostic, and classification centers; road camps; forestry and conservation camps; youthful offender facilities (except in California); vocational training facilities; prison hospitals; drug and alcohol treatment facilities; prerelease centers; halfway houses; and State-operated local detention facilities. The CJ–43A, Facility Roster: An estimated 71 respondents from state departments of correction, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and corporations operating private prisons will be provided with a list of facilities in their jurisdictions (CJ–43A). Respondents will be asked to provide the information requested in the CJ–43B (see below) for each individual facility in their jurisdiction. Respondents can opt to use this listing to aid them in identifying individual facilities in operation on March 31, 2012, the anticipated survey reference date, or they can opt to provide the information based on a list of facilities generated through their own E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1 jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 210 / Monday, October 31, 2011 / Notices data systems. The CJ–43A is intended to be used as an aid and is not intended as an instrument to be filled out, so there is no burden associated with this instrument. The CJ–43B collection instrument: An estimated 71 respondents from state departments of correction, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and corporations operating private prisons will be asked to provide basic facility information for an estimated 2,200 adult correctional facilities. The CJ–43B identifies the elements to be collected for each facility. These items include name and location of the facility, sex of inmates housed, physical security of the facility, percentage of inmates regularly permitted to leave the facility unaccompanied, a one-day count of inmates by sex, and future plans to modify or close the facility. Based on the preference of the respondent, these data can be submitted via an electronic datafile generated from the respondent’s information management system or via individual forms for each facility. The Bureau of Justice Statistics will use information obtained from the CJ–43B to develop a sampling frame for future inmate surveys as well as to respond to queries from the U.S. Congress, Executive Office of the President, the U.S. Supreme Court, state officials, international organizations, researchers, students, the media, and others seeking facility-level statistics. The CJ–43: Respondents from state departments of correction, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and corporations operating private prisons will be asked to provide detailed facility information for an estimated 2,200 facilities in operation. This collection instrument is under development, but is expected to include items regarding facility characteristics, such as facility functions, capacity, and court orders or consent decrees under which facilities are operating; population characteristics, including special populations housed; staff characteristics; measures of facility security; and facility programs. BJS expects to consult with corrections experts and professionals to determine other topical items to be included in this collection. These statistics will provide a snapshot of adult correctional institutions in the United States and will be used to respond to queries from administrators, legislators, researchers, and planners to track changes in the numbers and types of facilities in operation, changes in staffing, security issues, and programs/services available to inmates in the state and federal correctional systems. A supplemental VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Oct 28, 2011 Jkt 226001 approval will be submitted to OMB when the materials are ready for review. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 2,200 responses at 15 minutes each for the CJ–43B. The estimated time is based on feedback from state and federal corrections department staff. The total burden estimate is based on the conservative assumption that all respondents would submit separate forms for each facility; however, it is expected that the majority of respondents will choose to submit a single electronic file generated from their information management systems. The CJ–43 is still in the planning stages. A supplemental approval and burden adjustment will be sought through OMB when the materials are ready for review. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: There are an estimated 550 annual total burden hours associated with the collection.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Michel Smyth by telephone at (202) 693–4129 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Slings Standard (29 CFR 1910.184) specifies several collection of information requirements, the specifics of which depend on the type of sling. The purpose of each of these requirements is to prevent workers from using defective or deteriorated slings, thereby reducing their risk of death or serious injury caused by sling failure during material handling. The OSHA is revising this information collection to include requirements contained in the Standards Improvement Project—Phase III Final Rule published June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33590). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB Control Number 1218–0223. The current OMB approval is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2011; however, it should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
