Download as PDF 75568 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 239 / Thursday, December 12, 2013 / Notices foreign investments in these two categories of Commission licensees. Therefore, we believe it is appropriate that our review of proposed broadcast investments remain on a case-by-case basis and be allowed to mature before we consider comprehensive rules and procedures similar to those applicable to foreign investment in common carrier licensees.32 16. Some commenters have asserted that the underlying national security rationale for section 310(b)(4) in the broadcast area, protection from foreign propaganda on radio and television stations, no longer exists. Although many new potential threats and national security issues have arisen as technology has advanced,33 we do not believe that the historical statutory concern for foreign influence over broadcast stations has disappeared. Broadcast stations are licensed to serve the needs and interests of local U.S. communities. They uniquely offer a range of critical information services to the American public, including, for instance, the provision of local, state, national, and international news, national Emergency Alerts, local severe weather alerts, Amber Alerts for missing children, and homeland security information. Ensuring that the ownership of broadcast licensees serves the public interest is embodied in a statutory directive with which we must faithfully comply and we will evaluate applications proposing foreign broadcast ownership accordingly. In particular, we will address each specific situation in terms of its potential public interest benefits and any relevant public interest concerns, including national security concerns, consistent with the statute and this Declaratory Ruling. maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES IV. Ordering Clause 17. Accordingly, it is ordered that, pursuant to the authority contained in sections 4(i) and 310(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 310(b), 5 U.S.C. 554(e) and § 1.2 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.2, this Declaratory Ruling in MB Docket No. 13–50 is adopted. 32 Some commenters raise additional suggestions for Commission review of foreign investment in broadcast licensees. Although many of these recommendations proffer thoughtful contributions to the proceeding record, it is premature to adopt them at this time. Our consideration of the numerous overarching issues involved in this area is ongoing. As we continue to address applications on a case-by-case basis, we will ascertain whether it is appropriate to conduct a rulemaking proceeding. 33 See, e.g., Confidential Reports List U.S. Weapon System Designs Compromised by Chinese Cyberspies, by Ellen Nakashima, The Washington Post (May 27, 2013).

Proposed Project Chemical Emergencies Audience Analysis—New—Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Background and Brief Description The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) play a vital role in mitigating chemical-related risks to public health. As part of that role, both agencies are responsible for assessing, minimizing, and monitoring risks to public health, and are tasked with providing trusted, accurate health information to the public. Given that both agencies are under the same leadership, information collected to inform health communications will be of value to both agencies. The Office of Communications is seeking a one-year OMB-approval for an initiative to increase the effectiveness of the agencies’ communications related to both unintentional and intentional chemical releases. In order to inform the development of messages and materials, the Office of Communications would like to understand the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors (KAB) of key professional audiences who are involved in the immediate aftermath of chemical emergencies. In consultation with Subject Matter Experts, the Office of Communications prioritized the following professional audiences for this research: • First responders, including police, fire fighters and emergency medical service workers • Emergency department personnel, both clinical and non-clinical • Environmental and public health professionals at the city, county and state levels • Poison Control Center directors and staff This information collection seeks to characterize what these key professionals know and believe about chemical emergency events, what related activities and behaviors they engage in or would engage in, what information these audiences want, and what their challenges and concerns are. This information collection seeks approval to obtain data using two qualitative data collection methods. The first method includes focus groups to explore the KAB of members of these key professions in a group setting, allowing for dialogue between participants to provide the Office of Communications with in-depth information about this complex topic. Focus groups will take place remotely using Webinar technology, and participants will join the discussion by telephone. Although the Recruitment Screeners vary by respondent type, the same Moderator’s Guide will be used for all focus groups. The second part of this information collection will include individual interviews with state-level environmental health professionals and Poison Control Center directors. Individual interviews will allow the agencies to gather in-depth information about state-level response structures and Poison Control Centers. Interviews will take place by telephone. To help ensure that participants have some experience responding to chemical emergencies, participants will be recruited from five states with the highest number of chemical emergencies, and within those states, from the areas where the highest number of incidents have occurred. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 138 hours.

Background and Brief Description

    The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) and the Agency

the Office of Communications would like to understand the knowledge,
