Proposed Project: Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant 
Synar Report Format, FFY 2020-2022--(OMB No. 0930-0222)--Extension

    Section 1926 of the Public Health Service Act [42 U.S.C. 300x-26] 
stipulates that Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant 
(SABG) funding agreements for alcohol and drug abuse programs for 
fiscal year 1994 and subsequent fiscal years require states to have in 
effect a law stating that it is unlawful for any manufacturer, 
retailer, or distributor of tobacco products to sell or distribute any 
such product to any individual under the age of 18. This section 
further requires that states conduct annual, random, unannounced 
inspections to ensure compliance with the law; that the state submit 
annually a report describing the results of the inspections, the 
activities carried out by the state to enforce the required law, the 
success the state has achieved in reducing the availability of tobacco 
products to individuals under the age of 18, and the strategies to be 
utilized by the state for enforcing such law during the fiscal year for 
which the grant is sought.
    Before making an award to a state under the SABG, the Secretary 
must make a determination that the state has maintained compliance with 
these requirements. If a determination is made that the state is not in 
compliance, penalties shall be applied. Penalties ranged from 10 
percent of the Block Grant in applicable year 1 (FFY 1997 SABG 
Applications) to 40 percent in applicable year 4 (FFY 2000 SABG 
Applications) and subsequent years. Respondents include the 50 states, 
the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. 
Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, Palau, Micronesia, and the Marshall Islands. Red Lake 
Indian Tribe is not subject to tobacco requirements.
    Regulations that implement this legislation are at 45 CFR 96.130, 
are approved by OMB under control number 0930-0163, and require that 
each state submit an annual Synar report to the Secretary describing 
their progress in complying with section 1926 of the PHS Act. The Synar 
report, due December 31 following the fiscal year for which the state 
is reporting, describes the results of the inspections and the 
activities carried out by the state to enforce the required law; the 
success the state has achieved in reducing the availability of tobacco 
products to individuals under the age of 18; and the strategies to be 
utilized by the state for enforcing such law during the fiscal year for 
which the grant is sought. SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse 
Prevention will request an extension of OMB approval of the current 
report format associated with section 1926 (42 U.S.C. 300x-26) to 2022. 
Extending OMB approval of the current report format will continue to 
facilitate consistent, credible, and efficient monitoring of Synar 
compliance across the states.
