To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call 404–639–7570 or send comments to Leroy Richardson, 1600 Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in accordance with Presidential Decision Directive 39, which outlined national anti-terrorism policies and assigned specific missions to Federal departments and agencies. The LRN’s mission is to maintain an integrated national and international network of laboratories that can respond to acts of biological, chemical, or radiological terrorism and other public health emergencies. Federal, state and local public health laboratories voluntarily join the LRN. The LRN Program Office maintains a database of information for each member laboratory that includes contact information as well as staff and equipment inventories. However, semiannually or during emergency response the LRN Program Office may conduct a Special Data Call to obtain additional information from LRN Member Laboratories in regards to biological or chemical terrorism preparedness. Special Data Calls may be conducted via queries that are distributed by broadcast emails or by survey tools (i.e. Survey Monkey). This is a request for an extension to this generic clearance. The only cost to respondents is their time to respond to the data call. Clifton Road, MS–D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an email to omb@cdc.gov. 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 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. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.

The MACDP is a population-based surveillance system for birth defects currently covering three counties in Metropolitan Atlanta. Since 1997, CDC has funded casecontrol studies of major birth defects that utilize existing birth defect surveillance registries (including MACDP) to identify cases and study birth defects causes in participating states/municipalities across the United States.

The BD–STEPS interview takes approximately forty-five minutes to complete. A maximum of 275 interviews are planned per year per center, 200 cases and 75 controls. With seven centers planned, the maximum interview burden for all centers combined would be approximately 1,444 hours. As with NBDPS, parents in BD–STEPS will be asked to collect deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples from themselves and their infants. The collection of saliva cells by the mother, father and infant takes about 15 minutes per person. For the infant sample, the parent will rub long-handled sponges between the infant’s cheek and gum; parents will be asked to swab a total of five sponges per infant. The infant’s mother and father will be asked to provide their own saliva samples by spitting into a funnel connected to small collection tubes. Collection of the saliva samples takes approximately 2–5 minutes per person, but the estimate of burden is 15 minutes per person to account for reading and understanding the consent form and specimen collection instructions and mailing back the completed kits. The anticipated maximum burden for collection of the saliva samples for all centers combined would be approximately 1,444 hours. Information gathered from both the interviews and the DNA specimens has been and will continue to be used to study independent genetic and environmental factors as well as geneenvironment interactions for a broad range of carefully classified birth defects.

control infants will be randomly selected from birth certificates or 
birth hospital records; mothers of case and control infants will be 
interviewed using a computer-assisted telephone interview.
    The BD-STEPS interview takes approximately forty-five minutes to

200 cases and 75 controls. With seven centers planned, the maximum 
interview burden for all centers combined would be approximately 1,444
