Data collection will be managed by the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and the Calhoun County Health Department (CCHD). A sample of 500 surviving ACHS cohort members with PCBs measurements will be enrolled in the ACHS–II. After informed consent, clinical assessments will be done. These will be for blood pressure, height, weight, hip, and body girth. A questionnaire will be answered by computer-assisted personal interviews (CAPIs). Questions will be asked for health, demographic, diet, and lifestyle factors. The self-reported responses will be compared to laboratory analytes. For these, blood samples will be drawn and analyzed. The ACHS–II will measure the same serum PCBs as in the first Anniston survey. In this way, changes in PCB levels can be studied. The ACHS–II will also include serum analytes for dioxins, furans, dioxin-like PCBs, and chlorinated pesticides. Additional analytes include blood measures of polybrominated biphenyls and heavy metals. Clinical biomarkers will include measures for thyroid, diabetes, lipids, and immune function. This will give a more complete profile of human exposures and health in Anniston, AL. The ATSDR is requesting a two-year approval for this information collection. The total annualized burden is 227 hours. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. Each respondent will spend about 2 hours in the study.

Comment and Response Comment: ANA received one comment in reference to ANA’s new administrative policy focused on conflict of interest standards that states that staff employed through an ANAfunded project cannot also serve as a member of the governing body for the applicant organization. Therefore, staff employed through an ANA-funded project cannot also serve as a member of the governing body for the applicant organization. During the award negotiation phase, ANA will ask the prospective recipient to modify project personnel if a proposed staff member is also a member of the applicant organization’s governing body. In addition, there should be a separation of duties from staff and the governing bodies within an organization to ensure the integrity of internal controls and to minimize disruptions in the continuity of operations. The commenter stated that this policy would have a negative impact on the commenter’s organization’s ability to implement a grant as it currently allows two teachers to serve as members of the school board, as required by their bylaws. If this policy were implemented, the applicant would not have the ability to modify project personnel to align with this policy due to the extreme shortage of certified E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1
