Clarifications to the Export Administration Regulations for the Use of License Exceptions
This final rule makes clarifications to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to provide guidance based on existing agency understanding and practice on the use of two license exceptions. Specifically, this final rule makes three clarifications to License Exception Governments, International Organizations, International Inspections under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and the International Space Station (GOV) and adds five notes, along with making other minor clarifications, to License Exception Strategic Trade Authorization (STA). These revisions respond to questions BIS has received about the use of these two EAR license exceptions and provide the general public answers to frequently asked questions based on existing agency interpretive practice. Therefore, the clarifications in this final rule do not change the EAR requirements for the use of the license exceptions but are intended to assist exporters new to the EAR.

State Educational Agency and Local Educational Agency-School Data Collection and Reporting Under ESEA, Title I, Part A; ED-2017-ICCD-0130; Correction
On October 26, 2017, the U.S. Department of Education published a 60-day comment period notice in the Federal Register (Page 49602, Column 1; FR DOC #2017-23222) seeking public comment for an information collection entitled, ``State Educational Agency and Local Educational AgencySchool Data Collection and Reporting Under ESEA, Title I, Part A''. The abstract was incorrect, and is corrected as follows: Although the U.S. Department of Education (ED) determines Title I, Part A allocations for Local Educational Agencies (LEAs), the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, requires State Educational Agencies (SEAs) to adjust ED- determined Title I, Part A LEA allocations to account for newly created LEAs and LEA boundary changes, to redistribute Title I, Part A funds to small LEAs (under 20,000 total population) using alternative poverty data (if an SEA has ED's approval to do so), and to reserve funds for school improvement, State administration, and, if applicable, Direct Student Services. This control number covers only the burden associated with the actual procedures an SEA must follow when adjusting ED- determined LEA allocations. The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Office of the Chief Privacy Officer, Office of Management, hereby issues a correction notice as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
