SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Background The Otay Mesa LPOE is located approximately 17 miles southeast of downtown San Diego, just north of the U.S. border and the Baja California Peninsula of Mexico. When it was constructed in 1983, its primary purpose was to divert growing commercial truck traffic from the increasingly busy San Ysidro LPOE to the west, at the southern terminus of Interstate 5. The Otay Mesa LPOE processes commercial and privatelyowned vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Since the LPOE opened, vehicle and pedestrian traffic and the population and general development in the area have grown. It is now one of the ten busiest land ports in the country and is the busiest commercial port on the California-Mexico border, processing the second highest volume of trucks, and third highest dollar volume of trade among all U.S.-Mexico LPOEs. Everincreasing traffic loads and new security initiatives require increased capacity and new inspection technology to be installed and implemented at existing facilities. The Project’s purpose is to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, security and safety at the existing Otay Mesa LPOE. The Project’s need, or the need to which the GSA is responding, is to increase the LPOE’s capacity due to increased demand, and to address public and employee safety and border security concerns. The DEIS considers two ‘‘action’’ alternatives and one ‘‘no action’’ alternative. The Preferred Alternative would include the development of an approximately 10-acre GSA-owned plot of land to the immediate east of the existing commercial import lot. The new lot would be used to construct commercial inspection buildings and additional commercial import lanes. It would also include improvements to existing pedestrian lanes and personal vehicle inspection lanes; relocation of personnel currently housed in the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Aug 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 Pedestrian, Commercial Import and Commercial Export buildings; renovation of existing facilities throughout the Otay Mesa LPOE; and demolition of facilities that would no longer be needed would also occur. New construction would include commercial import and exit booths, six additional pedestrian lanes in the Pedestrian Building, a Commercial Annex Building (CAB), a return-to-Mexico lane for commercial traffic, a pedestrian ramp and parking areas for the new commercial lot. Building renovations would include the installation of energy conservation measures and water conservation measures across the Otay Mesa LPOE, the correction of deficiencies throughout existing facilities (e.g., updating security systems, updating HVAC systems, improving lighting and repaving old asphalt surfaces), and refurbishing the interiors of the pedestrian, commercial import and commercial export buildings including repainting and replacing flooring. The Reduced Build Alternative would include many of the same activities as under the Preferred Alternative; however, the overall activity level would be lower. Notably, no new construction would occur on the 10-acre GSA-owned plot of land, and the Commercial Annex Building would not be constructed; instead, the plot of land would be paved and used as additional space for the commercial vehicle inspection booths which would be reconfigured to increase traffic flow. Renovation of existing facilities would still occur, but activities would be limited to updating security and HVAC systems and repainting interiors. The No Action alternative assumes that modernization and expansion of the existing LPOE would not occur and that a new facility would not be constructed adjacent to the existing LPOE. The LPOE would continue to operate under current conditions. Public Meeting The meeting will be conducted in an open house format, where project information will be presented and distributed. Comments must be received by August 31, 2018, and emailed to osmahn.kadri@gsa.gov or sent to the address listed above. Dated: August 2, 2018.

In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. 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; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. 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, effectively if there is an accurate estimate of the total number of illnesses that occur, and if these estimates are recalculated and monitored over time. Estimates of the total burden start with accurate and reliable estimates of the number of acute gastrointestinal illness episodes that occur in the general community. To more precisely estimate this and to describe the frequency of important exposures associated with illness, FoodNet created the Population Survey. The FoodNet Population Survey is a survey of persons residing in the surveillance area. Data are collected on the prevalence and severity of acute gastrointestinal illness in the general population, describe common symptoms associated with diarrhea, and determine the proportion of persons with diarrhea who seek medical care. The survey also collects data on exposures (e.g. food, water, animal contact) commonly associated with foodborne illness. Information about food exposures in the general public has proved invaluable during outbreak investigations. The ability to compare exposures reported by outbreak cases to the ‘background’ exposure in the general population allows investigators to more quickly pinpoint a source and enact control measures. CDC seeks approval for an OMB extension to continue this important work. The total estimated Burden Hours for this collection is 6,067 annually. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5. Assess information collection costs.

Background and Brief Description

    Foodborne illnesses represent a significant public health burden in 
the United States. It is estimated that each year, 48 million Americans 
(1 in 6) become ill, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die as the 
result of a foodborne illness. Since 1996, the Foodborne Diseases 
Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) has conducted active population-
based surveillance for Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, 
Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157 and 
non-O157, Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia infections. Data from FoodNet 
serves as the nation's ``report card'' on food safety by monitoring 
progress toward CDC Healthy People 2020 objectives.
    Since the previous OMB approval, pilot testing has been completed 
and data collection began in all states. As of July 10, 2018 a total of 
11,657 surveys have been completed between all survey modes including 
landline, cell phone, web, and mail. CDC is seeking two years of OMB 
clearance for an extension of control number 0920-1112.
    Evaluation of efforts to control foodborne illnesses can only be 
done effectively if there is an accurate estimate of the total number 
of illnesses that occur, and if these estimates are recalculated and 
monitored over time. Estimates of the total burden start with accurate 
and reliable estimates of the number of acute gastrointestinal illness 
episodes that occur in the general community. To more precisely 
estimate this and to describe the frequency of important exposures 
associated with illness, FoodNet created the Population Survey.
    The FoodNet Population Survey is a survey of persons residing in 
the surveillance area. Data are collected on the prevalence and 
severity of acute gastrointestinal illness in the general population, 
describe common symptoms associated with diarrhea, and determine the 
proportion of persons with diarrhea who seek medical care. The survey 
also collects data on exposures (e.g. food, water, animal contact) 
commonly associated with foodborne illness. Information about food 
exposures in the general public has proved invaluable during outbreak 
investigations. The ability to compare exposures reported by outbreak 
cases to the `background' exposure in the general population allows 
investigators to more quickly pinpoint a source and enact control 
measures.

work. The total estimated Burden Hours for this collection is 6,067 
annually. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.
