USCIS did not receive any comments in connection with the 60-day notice. During the 60-day Notice, USCIS posted to http://www.regulations.gov documents that showed an overview of the revised Form and Instructions with VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Apr 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 red or strike-through text indicating the additions or deletions, as well as Table of Changes highlighting the differences between the currently published versions and the revised versions of the Form and Instructions. The proposed Form included a Part 5, Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities and/or Impairments, while the Table of Changes indicated that Part 5 was being deleted. USCIS is removing instructions and spaces on forms to request accommodations for individuals with disabilities and/or impairments because we have determined that was an ineffective method for communicating and obtaining that information. The personal notices that are sent to individuals to schedule appointments when a physical appearance at a USCIS office may be necessary is much more effective for instructions about and request for accommodations when needed. Therefore, the language will be removed from the Instructions. The Form PDF and Table of Changes posted for comment in http://www.regulations.gov with this notice correctly reflect that Part 5 is being removed from Form N– 336.

    During the 60-day Notice, USCIS posted to http://www.regulations.gov documents that showed an overview of the revised 
Form and Instructions with red or strike-through text indicating the 
additions or deletions, as well as Table of Changes highlighting the 
differences between the currently published versions and the revised 
versions of the Form and Instructions. The proposed Form included a 
Part 5, Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities and/or 
Impairments, while the Table of Changes indicated that Part 5 was being 
deleted. USCIS is removing instructions and spaces on forms to request 
accommodations for individuals with disabilities and/or impairments 
because we have determined that was an ineffective method for 
communicating and obtaining that information. The personal notices that 
are sent to individuals to schedule appointments when a physical 
appearance at a USCIS office may be necessary is much more effective 
for instructions about and request for accommodations when needed. 
Therefore, the language will be removed from the Instructions. The Form 
PDF and Table of Changes posted for comment in http://www.regulations.gov with this notice correctly reflect that Part 5 is 
being removed from Form N-336.

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
