Change ‘‘U.S. Grade A or U.S. Fancy’’ to ‘‘U.S. Grade A.’’ Change ‘‘U.S. Grade B or U.S. Extra Standard’’ to ‘‘U.S. Grade B.’’ Change references for ‘‘flavor’’ to ‘‘flavor and odor’’ to ensure that these requirements are consistent throughout the document. The other grade standards identified in the original notice (75 FR 43141), namely frozen carrots, frozen whole kernel corn, frozen corn on the cob, frozen breaded onion rings, frozen peas, frozen peas and carrots, frozen French fried potatoes, frozen sweet peppers, frozen succotash, and frozen tomato juice and tomato juice from concentrate will be revised at a later date. AMS determined that these grade standards require additional revisions to take into account U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Standards of Identity, new styles and pack types, and new commercially cultivated varieties (such as supersweet corn) which possess unique characteristics. AMS will seek additional guidance from the industry to update these grade standards so that they reflect current marketing practices and serve the needs of the industry. The revisions to these frozen vegetable grade standards made in this notice provide a common language for trade and better reflect the current marketing of frozen vegetables. The changes are made effective 30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register. Authority: 7 U.S.C. 1621–1627. Dated: July 24, 2013. Rex A.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request clearance for the collection of data concerning the November 2013 Email Address Collection Test Supplement. The Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) sponsor the CPS which has been conducted for over 70 years. The Current Population Survey (CPS) has been collecting data on household employment for decades. Through the years, it has made survey improvements to keep the data quality and survey response rates high. Over the last few years, CPS, like many surveys, has seen response rates declining slowly. A review of paradata has found one of the main reasons for this decline is not just refusals but also respondent avoidance (i.e. the interviewers are unable to make contact with the respondent). This has led to an effort to think of new ways to contact respondents and reduce respondent burden so that they may be more likely to answer CPS over the many months needed. One of the solutions recommended has been to research the possibility of using the Internet as a data collection mode as well as a tool to help increase response rates. We foresee that in the future, we could collect email addresses from our respondents. For those that are eligible, we could then send an email to the respondent with a secure link in order for that respondent to complete the CPS the next month over the internet and in turn, keep up response rates while lowering costs of interviewing. Internet is not limited to just a survey data collection mode. These emails could be used for other contacts as well. We could allow the respondent to set up a time to meet with the interviewer at their convenience and PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 save on travel costs associated with the multiple personal visits. The email could also be as simple as a ‘‘Thank You’’ with information that lets respondents know their participation is improving the quality of our data. This supplement is the first step in the review of the feasibility of this plan. It will test the ability of collecting email addresses and collecting interest in being contacted by email or answering the survey through the internet for possible future enhancements to CPS. II. Method of Collection The email address collection will be collected by both personal visit and telephone interviews in conjunction with the regular November CPS interviewing. All interviews are conducted using computer-assisted interviewing. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: There are no forms. We conduct all interviews on computers. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 29,500. Estimated Time per Response: 3 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,475. Estimated Total Annual Cost: The only cost to the respondents is that of their time. Respondents Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C. 182, and Title 29, U.S.C., 1–9. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
