Download as PDF 72676 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 3, 2013 / Notices will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: With this ICR renewal, EPA is seeking permission to continue recordkeeping and reporting requirements for refiners and importers as they relate to gasoline sulfur content of motor vehicles under Section 211(e)(1) of the Clean Air Act and 40 CFR part 80, subpart H, and to provide a compliance option whereby a refiner or importer may demonstrate compliance with the gasoline sulfur control requirement via test results. These provisions, which have been in effect since 2006, are designed to grant compliance flexibility. Respondents/affected entities: Gasoline Refiners, Importers, Gasoline Terminals, Pipelines, Truckers and Users of Research and Development Gasoline. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory. Estimated number of respondents: 1,380 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion, monthly and annually. Total estimated burden: 38,498 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $3,158,065 (per year), which includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: This collection has 1,380 respondents. The total annual hourly burden and cost for this ICR is estimated to be 38,571 hours and $3,158,065, respectively. The total number of responses for this ICR is estimated to be 37,665. The cost of this ICR compared with the currently approved OMB collection increased by $584,111 due to better numbers used to calculate burden. The number of respondents, responses and hours has not changed in this renewal. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Dated: November 21, 2013. Byron Bunker, Director, Compliance Division.

Proposed Project Sexually Transmitted Disease Services at US Colleges and Universities: Where are we now?— New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Approximately 43% of the over 30 million 18–24 year olds in the United States are currently enrolled in college or graduate school. These institutions comprise a mix of 2-year and 4-year colleges, public and private institutions, technical schools, and community colleges. In the U.S., young adulthood is the peak age group for many risk behaviors including unprotected sex. College students, who are typically at the age of most risk for acquiring a sexually transmitted disease (STD), may face challenges when seeking sexual and reproductive health care on campus. The last national study exploring the availability of STD services in US colleges and universities (2- and 4-year) was conducted in 2001 and found that only 60% (474/736) of schools had a health center. Health centers were more common among larger schools (greater than 4,000 students) that were privately funded and 4-year universities with housing. Of the health centers provided, 66% provided STD services, 55% provided obstetrical and gynecologic care, and 54% provided contraceptive services. National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) data estimates that the percentage of 18- to 22-year-olds ever tested for HIV is 34.2%; and only 18% reported being tested in the past year. Although risk factors for HIV/STD transmission (e.g., sex with multiple partners, unprotected sex, and using drugs or alcohol during sexual activity) can be particularly evident among college students in general, students enrolled at colleges with significant E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1
