SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department’s information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: OESE Performance Review and Self-assessment Protocol. OMB Control Number: 1810–NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 45. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 90. Abstract: The Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) administers multiple programs administered by State Educational Agencies (SEAs), including Title I, Sections 1001–1004 (School Improvement); Title I, Part A (Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies); Title I, Part B (Enhanced Assessments Grants (EAG), and Grants for State Assessments and Related Activities); Title II, Part A (Supporting Effective Instruction); Title III, Part A (English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement). Annual performance reviews—annual phone or on-site conversations with a purposeful sample of SEA and Local Education Agency (LEA) program directors and coordinators—help ensure that an SEA and its LEA are making progress toward improving student achievement and the quality of instruction for all students and are ensuring requirements are met through the review of the program and fiscal requirements to safeguard public funds from waste, fraud, and abuse. The information shared with OESE also informs the selection and delivery of technical assistance to SEAs and aligns structures, processes, and routines so OESE can regularly monitor the connection between grant administration and intended outcomes.

Magnolia LNG states that, on November 19, 2018, it filed an application at FERC (FERC Docket No. CP19–19–000) requesting an increase of 0.8 mtpa in the LNG production capacity of the Magnolia LNG Terminal. Magnolia LNG states that this capacity increase is based on a SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1111 refinement of its final design for the Magnolia LNG Terminal and, if approved by FERC, would increase the Terminal’s total LNG production capacity from 8 mtpa to 8.8 mtpa. In this Application, Magnolia LNG is seeking to increase its total non-FTA export volume in DOE/FE Order No. 3909 to 1.23 Bcf/d of natural gas, which Magnolia LNG states is equivalent to 8.8 mtpa of LNG. Additional details can be found in Magnolia LNG’s Application, posted on the DOE/FE website at: https://fossil.energy.gov/ng_regulation/ sites/default/files/programs/ MagnoliaLNG_App_AMEND12_31_ 18.pdf.

This Notice applies only to the portion of the Application requesting authority to amend DOE/FE Order No. 3909 authorizing exports of LNG to non-FTA countries pursuant to section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), 15 U.S.C. 717b(a).

DOE will consider any issues required by law or policy. DOE will consider domestic need for the natural gas, as well as any other issues determined to be appropriate, including whether the arrangement is consistent with DOE’s policy of promoting competition in the marketplace by allowing commercial parties to freely negotiate their own trade arrangements. As part of this analysis, DOE will consider the study entitled, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (2018 LNG Export Study),1 and DOE/FE’s response to public comments received on that Study.2 Additionally, DOE will consider the following environmental documents: • Addendum to Environmental Review Documents Concerning Exports 1 NERA Economic Consulting, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (June 7, 2018), available at: https:// www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2018/06/f52/ Macroeconomic%20LNG%20Export%20Study% 202018.pdf; see also U.S. Dep’t of Energy, Study on Macroeconomic Outcomes of LNG Exports; Notice of Availability of the 2018 LNG Export Study and Request for Comments, 83 FR 27314 (June 12, 2018). 2 U.S. Dep’t of Energy, Study on Macroeconomic Outcomes of LNG Exports: Response to Comments Received on Study; Notice of Response to Comments, 83 FR 67251 (Dec. 28, 2018).
