Need and Use of the Information: The information collected from the AFIDA Reports is used to monitor the effect of foreign investment upon family farms and rural communities and in the preparation of a voluntary report to Congress and the President. Congress reviews the report and decides if regulatory action is necessary to limit the amount of foreign investment in U.S. agricultural land. If this information was not collected, USDA could not effectively monitor foreign investment and the impact of such holdings upon family farms and rural communities.

Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 7 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89–642), 42 U.S.C. 1776, authorizes the Department to provide Federal funds to State agencies (SAs) for administering the Child Nutrition Programs (7 CFR parts 210, 215, 220, 226 and 250). State Administrative Expense (SAE) Funds, 7 CFR part 235, sets forth procedures and recordkeeping requirements for use by PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SAs in reporting and maintaining records of their need and use of SAE funds. A summary of the reporting and recordkeeping burden associated with this revision is presented in the table below. For this revision, the number of State Agencies was updated (decreased from 87 to 84) resulting in a decrease of 321 recordkeeping burden hours. The burden for maintaining accounting records was adjusted to more accurately reflect the average frequency of updating records due to electronic system processing resulting in a decrease of 5,564 recordkeeping hours. The burden of documenting expenditures of funds from State sources in any fiscal year for the administration of CNP is already accounted for in the quarterly recordkeeping for the FNS–777; therefore, the burden for this recordkeeping requirement has been decreased by 856 hours. The burden associated with form FNS–777, Financial Status Report, was removed since the burden for this form has been approved under the information collection for the Food Program Reporting System (FPRS), OMB Control Number 0584–0594, which expires June 30, 2017, resulting in a decrease of 174 reporting hours. The burden associated with form FNS–525, State Administrative Expense Funds Reallocation Report, is proposed for removal and transfer to the FPRS information collection to accommodate electronic reporting of the data resulting in a transfer of 308 reporting hours. These revisions result in a net decrease of 7,223 total burden hours. Revisions to the update form FNS–74, Federal-State Agreement, are also being proposed. The revised FNS–74 form is included in the Supporting Documents to this notice on www.regulations.gov. Affected Public: State Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 84.
