[FR Doc. 2016–26038 Filed 10–26–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6820–14–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [30Day–17–0026] Agency Forms Undergoing Paperwork Reduction Act Review The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has submitted the following information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The notice for the proposed information collection is published to obtain comments from the public and affected agencies. Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of 74805 using the RVCT help state and federal infectious disease officials to assess changes in the diagnosis and treatment of TB, monitor trends in TB epidemiology and outbreaks, and develop strategies to meet the national goal of TB elimination. CDC currently conducts and maintains the national TB surveillance system (NTSS) pursuant to the provisions of Section 301 (a) of the Public Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241] and Section 306 of the Public Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241 (a)]. Data are collected by 60 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and 7 jurisdictions in the Pacific and Caribbean). The last major revision of the RVCT data collection instrument was approved in 2009, in consultation with CDC’s Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), state and local health departments, and partner organizations including the National TB Controllers Association, the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists, and the Advisory Committee for the Elimination of Tuberculosis. No revisions to the RVCT are proposed in this data collection extension request. CDC publishes an annual report using RVCT data to summarize national TB statistics and also periodically conducts special analyses for publication to further describe and interpret national TB data. These data assist in public health planning, evaluation, and resource allocation. Reporting areas also review and analyze their RVCT data to monitor local TB trends, evaluate program success, and focus resources to eliminate TB. No other Federal agency collects this type of national TB data. In addition to providing technical assistance on the use of RVCT, CDC provides technical support for reporting software. In this request, CDC is requesting approval for approximately 5496 burden hours, an estimated decrease of 350 hours from 2014. This decrease is due to having fewer TB cases in the United States as we continue progress towards TB elimination. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. information are encouraged. Your comments should address any of the following: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses; and (e) Assess information collection costs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Program provides a system of no-fault compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa– 10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of the petition on the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who is named as the respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of, compensation. A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This Table lists for each covered SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 childhood vaccine the conditions that may lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of the listed vaccines. Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa–12(b)(2), requires that ‘‘[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish notice of such petition in the Federal Register.’’ Set forth below is a list of petitions received by HRSA on September 1, 2016, through September 30, 2016. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list reflects such redaction. Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ‘‘shall afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, written information’’ relating to the following: 1. The existence of evidence ‘‘that there is not a preponderance of the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the administration of the vaccine described in the petition,’’ and 2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either: a. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table but which was caused by’’ one of the vaccines referred to in the Table, or b. ‘‘[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth in the Table but which was caused by a vaccine’’ referred to in the Table. In accordance with Section 2112(b)(2), all interested persons may submit written information relevant to the issues described above in the case of the petitions listed below.

Proposed Project

    Report of Verified Case of Tuberculosis (RVCT), (OMB Control No. 
0920-0026 exp. 3/31/2017)--Extension--National Center for HIV/AIDS, 
Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    In the United States, an estimated 10 to 15 million people are 
infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and about 10% of these persons 
will develop tuberculosis (TB) disease at some point in their lives. 
The purpose of this project is to continue ongoing national 
tuberculosis surveillance using the standardized Report of Verified 
Case of Tuberculosis (RVCT). Data collected using the RVCT help state 
and federal infectious disease officials to assess changes in the 
diagnosis and treatment of TB, monitor trends in TB epidemiology and 
outbreaks, and develop strategies to meet the national goal of TB 
elimination.
    CDC currently conducts and maintains the national TB surveillance 
system (NTSS) pursuant to the provisions of Section 301 (a) of the 
Public Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241] and Section 306 of the Public 
Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241 (a)]. Data are collected by 60 reporting 
areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto 
Rico, and 7 jurisdictions in the Pacific and Caribbean). The last major 
revision of the RVCT data collection instrument was approved in 2009, 
in consultation with CDC's Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), 
state and local health departments, and partner organizations including 
the National TB Controllers Association, the Council for State and 
Territorial Epidemiologists, and the Advisory Committee for the 
Elimination of Tuberculosis. No revisions to the RVCT are proposed in 
this data collection extension request.
    CDC publishes an annual report using RVCT data to summarize 
national TB statistics and also periodically conducts special analyses 
for publication to further describe and interpret national TB data. 
These data assist in public health planning, evaluation, and resource 
allocation. Reporting areas also review and analyze their RVCT data to 
monitor local TB trends, evaluate program success, and focus resources 
to eliminate TB. No other Federal agency collects this type of national
