SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the USGS, in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. A Federal Register notice with a 60day public comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on June 21, 2018 (FR 83, Number 120, Pages 28860– 28861). We did receive one comment but the comment did not address the collection of information on breeding birds. We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the USGS; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the USGS enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the USGS minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:54 Oct 10, 2018 Jkt 247001 withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: Respondents supply the U.S. Geological Survey with avian population data for more than 600 North American bird species. The survey data, resulting population trend estimates, and relative abundance estimates will be made available via the internet and through special publications, for use by Government agencies, industry, education programs, and the general public. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its’ implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection.’’ Responses are voluntary. No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked. Title of Collection: North American Breeding Bird Survey. OMB Control Number: 1028–0079. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: General public skilled in bird identification. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 1,600. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 2,600. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 11 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 28,600. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Frequency of Collection: Annually. Total Estimated Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: $141,700. Mileage costs are on average $54.50 per response, based on approximate 100-mile round trip for data collection per response and 2018 federal mileage rate of $0.545 per mile. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.). John French, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center Director.

(Mar. 22, 2017). The complaint, as amended, alleges violations of 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), 
based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for 
importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of 
certain graphics systems, components thereof, and consumer products 
containing the same, by reason of infringement of certain claims of 
U.S. Patent No. 7,633,506 (``the '506 patent); U.S. Patent No. 
7,796,133; U.S. Patent No. 8,760,454; and U.S. Patent No. 9,582,846. 
Id. The notice of investigation identified LG Electronics, Inc. of 
Seoul, Republic of Korea, LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc. of Englewood 
Cliffs, New Jersey, and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A. Inc. of San 
Diego, California (collectively, ``LG''), VIZIO of Irvine, California, 
MediaTek Inc. of Hsinchu City, Taiwan and Media Tek USA Inc. of San 
Jose, California (collectively, ``MediaTek''), and SDI of Fremont, 
California, as respondents in this investigation. See id. The Office of 
Unfair Import Investigations (``OUII'') is also a party to the 
investigation.
    On October 20, 2017, the Administrative Law Judge (``ALJ'') issued 
an initial determination terminating the investigation as to LG based 
on settlement. See Order No. 48 (Oct. 20, 2017), unreviewed, Comm'n 
Notice (Nov. 13, 2017). The remaining respondents in this investigation 
are VIZIO, MediaTek, and SDI (hereinafter, ``Respondents'').
    On April 13, 2018, the ALJ issued her final initial determination 
(``FID'') finding a violation of section 337 with respect to the '506 
patent. On August 22, 2018, the Commission affirmed with modification 
the FID's findings. See 83 FR 43899-900 (Aug. 28, 2018). The Commission 
also determined that the appropriate remedy is a LEO against 
Respondents' infringing products and CDOs against VIZIO and SDI. See 
id.
    On September 11, 2018, Complainants and VIZIO filed a joint 
petition (Petition) to modify in part the LEO as to VIZIO and to 
rescind the CDO against VIZIO, based on a settlement agreement. The 
Petition states that ``[p]ursuant to this settlement, all VIZIO 
articles currently covered by the Commission's Limited Exclusion Order 
are now licensed.'' See Petition at 1. On September 21, 2018, the 
Investigative Attorney filed a response in support of the Petition. No 
other party filed a response or opposition to the Petition.
    In view of the settlement agreement between Complainants and VIZIO, 
the Commission finds that the conditions justifying the remedial orders 
against Respondent VIZIO no longer exist, and therefore, granting the 
petition is warranted under 19 U.S.C. 1337(k) and 19 CFR 210.76(a). 
Accordingly, the Commission has determined to institute a modification 
and rescission proceeding. The Commission has further determined to 
grant the joint petition to modify in part the LEO as to VIZIO and to 
rescind the CDO against VIZIO. The Commission has issued a modified 
LEO. The modification and rescission proceeding is terminated.
    The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and 
in part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR
