Ethics Statement: To maintain the highest levels of honesty, integrity and ethical conduct, no Committee or subcommittee member shall participate in any ‘‘specific party matters’’ (i.e., matters are narrowly focused and typically involve specific transactions between identified parties) such as a lease, license, permit, contract, claim, grant, agreement, or related litigation with the Department in which the member has a direct or indirect financial interest. This includes the requirement for Committee or Subcommittee members to immediately disclose to the Designated Federal Officer (DFO) any specific party matter in which the member’s immediate family, relatives, business partners or employer would be directly seeking to financially benefit from the Committee’s recommendations. All members will receive ethics training to identify and avoid any actions that would cause the public to question the integrity of the Committee’s advice and recommendations. Members who are appointed as ‘‘Representatives’’ are not subject to Federal ethics laws because such appointment allows them to represent the point(s) of view of a particular group, business sector or segment of the public. Members appointed as ‘‘Special Government Employees’’ (SGEs) are considered intermittent Federal employees and are subject to Federal ethics laws. SGE’s are appointed due to their personal knowledge, academic scholarship, background or expertise. No SGE may participate in any activity in which the member has a prohibited financial interest. Appointees who are SGEs are required to complete and submit a Confidential Financial Disclosure Report (OGE–450 form) and, upon request, USDA will assist SGEs in preparing these financial reports. To ensure the highest level of compliance with applicable ethical standards USDA will provide ethics training to SGEs on an annual basis. The provisions of these paragraphs are not meant to exhaustively cover all Federal ethics laws and do not affect any other statutory or regulatory obligations to which advisory committee members are subject. Recordkeeping: The records of this Committee, formally and informally established subcommittees, or other subgroups of the committee, shall be handled in accordance with General VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:59 Aug 30, 2016 Jkt 238001 Records Schedule 26, Item 2 or other approved agency records disposition schedule. These records shall be available for public inspection and copying, subject to the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.

The purpose of the emergency meeting was to discuss and vote to postpone briefing meeting on the ‘‘Subtle Effects of Racism in South Dakota,’’ scheduled for Thursday, August 25, 2016 in Aberdeen, SD. The reason for postponing the August 25 meeting is due to a police shooting in Aberdeen that is under state investigation. SUMMARY: The meeting scheduled for August 25, 2016 is postponed. A new date has not been set. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Malee Craft at mcraft@usccr.gov, or 303–866–1040. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Records and documents discussed during the meeting will be available for public viewing as they become available at https://database.faca.gov/committee/ meetings.aspx?cid=274 and clicking on the ‘‘Meeting Details’’ and ‘‘Documents’’ links.

DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59981 Additional notice is hereby given, pursuant to the provisions of the rules and regulations of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (Commission), and the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), that the briefing meeting of the South Dakota Advisory Committee to the Commission scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 25, 2016, in the Community Room on the 1st Floor of the Aberdeen Public Safety Building, 114 2nd Avenue SE., Aberdeen, SD 57401, HAS BEEN POSTPONED by a vote of the SD State Advisory Committee. The vote to postpone was due to a recent critical incident in the Aberdeen community. A subsequent meeting date has not been scheduled. Exceptional Circumstance: Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Management Regulations (41 CFR 102– 3.150), the notice for this meeting is given less than 15 calendar days prior to the meeting due to exceptional circumstances. Given the exceptional urgency of the events, the agency and advisory committee deemed it important for the advisory committee to meet on the date given to discuss postponement of the August 25 briefing. Dated: August 24, 2016. Brian Walch, Director, Communications and Public Engagement.

Burden Hours: 42,700. Needs and Uses: The SIPP is a household-based survey designed as continuous series of national panels. The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows the integration of information for separate topics to form a single, unified database allowing for the examination of the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies. Government domestic policy formulators depend heavily upon SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received either directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on that distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population, which the SIPP has provided on a continuing basis since 1983. The SIPP has measured levels of economic well-being and permitted measurement of changes in these levels over time. The 2014 SIPP interview includes a portion conducted using an Event History Calendar (EHC) that facilitates the collection of dates of events and spells of coverage. The EHC assists the respondent’s ability to recall events accurately over the one year reference period and provides increased data quality and inter-topic consistency for dates reported by respondents. The EHC is intended to help respondents recall information in a more natural ‘‘autobiographical’’ manner by using life events as triggers to recall other economic events. The EHC was previously used in the 2010–2013 SIPP– EHC field tests in addition to 2014 Panel Waves 1 and 2. The 2014 Panel SIPP design does not contain freestanding topical modules; however, a portion of traditional SIPP topical module content is integrated into the 2014 SIPP Panel interview. Examples of this content include questions on medical expenses, child care, retirement and pension plan coverage, marital history, adult and child well-being, and others. Affected Public: Respondents, researchers, policymakers. Frequency: The 2014 SIPP Panel is an annual survey that runs for four years consecutively. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Sections 141 and 182. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov.
