The public record for this investigation may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On April 1, 1996, the Commission instituted a preliminary antidumping investigation in response to a petition filed by the Florida Tomato Growers Exchange, Orlando, FL; Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association, Orlando, FL; Florida Farm Bureau Federation, Gainesville, FL; South Carolina Tomato Association, Inc., Charleston, SC; Gadsden County Tomato Growers Association, Inc., Quincy, FL; Accomack County Farm Bureau, Accomack, VA; Florida Tomato Exchange, Orlando, FL; Bob Crawford, Commissioner of Agriculture, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Tallahassee, FL; and the Ad Hoc Group of Florida, California, Georgia, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tomato Growers (61 FR 15968, April 10, 1996). On May 16, 1996, the Commission notified Commerce of its affirmative preliminary injury determination (61 FR 28891, June 6, 1996). On October 28, 1996, Commerce preliminarily determined that imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico were being sold at LTFV in the United States (61 FR 56608, November 1, 1996). Also Commercially grown tomatoes, both for the fresh market and for processing, are classified as Lycopersicon esculentum. Important commercial varieties of fresh tomatoes include common round, cherry, grape, plum, greenhouse, and pear tomatoes, all of which are covered by this investigation. Tomatoes imported from Mexico covered by this investigation are classified under the following subheading of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), according to the season of importation: 0702. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico: Termination of Suspension Agreement, Rescission of Administrative Review, and Continuation of the Antidumping Duty Investigation. 84 FR 20858, 20860 May 13, 2019. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Jun 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 on October 28, 1996, Commerce and certain growers/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico signed a final suspension agreement (61 FR 56618, November 1, 1996). Accordingly, effective November 1, 1996, the Commission suspended its antidumping investigation (61 FR 58217, November 13, 1996). On October 1, 2001, Commerce initiated and the Commission instituted their first five-year reviews to determine whether termination of the suspended investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury (66 FR 49926, 66 FR 49975). On July 30, 2002, Commerce terminated the suspension agreement and its first review and resumed its antidumping investigation (67 FR 50858, August 6, 2002). Accordingly, the Commission terminated its first review on July 30, 2002 (67 FR 53361, August 15, 2002) and resumed its antidumping investigation (67 FR 56854, September 5, 2002). On December 16, 2002, Commerce and the Commission suspended their resumed antidumping investigations when Commerce signed a new suspension agreement with certain growers/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (67 FR 77044; 67 FR 78815, December 26, 2002). On November 1, 2007, Commerce initiated and the Commission instituted their second five-year reviews of the suspended investigation (72 FR 61861, 72 FR 61905). Commerce terminated the suspension agreement and its second review and resumed its antidumping investigation, effective January 18, 2008 (73 FR 2887, January 16, 2008). The Commission consequently terminated its second review of the suspended investigation and resumed its antidumping investigation, effective January 18, 2008 (73 FR 5869, January 31, 2008). The antidumping investigation was suspended effective January 22, 2008, when Commerce signed a new suspension agreement with certain growers/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (73 FR 4831, January 28, 2008; 73 FR 7762, February 11, 2008). On December 3, 2012, Commerce initiated and the Commission instituted their third five-year reviews of the suspended investigation (77 FR 71684, 77 FR 71629). On March 1, 2013, Commerce terminated the suspension agreement and its third review and resumed its antidumping investigation (78 FR 14771, March 7, 2013). On March 4, 2013, the Commission terminated its third review and resumed its antidumping investigation (78 FR 16529, March 15, 2013). Also on March PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4, 2013, Commerce signed a new suspension agreement with certain grower/exporters of fresh tomatoes from Mexico and suspended its antidumping investigation (78 FR 14967, March 8, 2013). Effective March 4, 2013, the Commission suspended its antidumping investigation (78 FR 16529, March 15, 2013). On February 1, 2018, Commerce initiated and the Commission instituted their fourth five-year reviews of the suspended investigation (83 FR 4641, 83 FR 4676). On May 7, 2019, Commerce terminated the suspension agreement and resumed its antidumping investigation (84 FR 20858, May 13, 2019). Effective May 7, 2019, the Commission terminated its fourth review (84 FR 21360, May 14, 2019) and has resumed its antidumping investigation. A schedule for the final phase of this investigation will be issued at a later date. Authority: This investigation is being conducted under authority of title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930; this notice is published pursuant to section 207.21 of the Commission’s rules.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nora Kincaid, BLS Clearance Officer, 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). (See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 24(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires the Secretary of Labor to develop and maintain an effective program of collection, compilation, and analysis of statistics on occupational injuries and illnesses. The Commissioner of Labor Statistics has been delegated the responsibility for ‘‘Furthering the purpose of the Occupational Safety and Health Act by developing and maintaining an effective program of collection, compilation, analysis and publication of occupational safety and health statistics.’’ The BLS fulfills this responsibility, in part, by conducting the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses in conjunction with participating state statistical agencies. The BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses provides the Nation’s primary indicator of the progress towards achieving the goal of safer and healthier workplaces. The survey produces the overall rate of occurrence of work injuries and illnesses by industry which can be compared to prior years to produce measures of the rate of change. These data are used to assess the Nation’s progress in improving the safety and health of America’s work places; to prioritize scarce federal and state resources; to guide the development of injury and illness prevention strategies; and to support Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state safety and health standards and research. Data are essential for evaluating the effectiveness of federal and state programs for improving work place safety and health. For these reasons, it is necessary to provide estimates separately for participating states. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. The survey measures the overall rate of occurrence of work injuries and illnesses by industry for private industry, state governments, and local governments. For the more serious injuries and illnesses, those with days away from work (DAFW), the survey provides detailed information on the injured/ill worker (age, sex, race, industry, occupation, and length of service), the time in shift, and the circumstances of the injuries and illnesses classified by standardized codes (nature of the injury/illness, part of body affected, primary and secondary sources of the injury/illness, and the event or exposure which produced the injury/illness). Beginning with the 2011 survey year, BLS began testing the collection of case and demographic data for injury and illness cases that require only days of job transfer or restriction (DJTR). The purpose of this on-going pilot study is to evaluate collection of these cases and to learn more about occupational injuries and illnesses that resulted in days of job transfer or work restriction. For survey year 2019, case circumstance and worker characteristics for DJTR cases will be collected for the following six NAICS * industry subsectors in private industry: Crop production (NAICS 111) Transportation equipment manufacturing (NAICS 336) Food and beverage stores (NAICS 445) Truck transportation (NAICS 484) Amusement, gambling, and recreation industries (NAICS 713) Food services and drinking places (NAICS 722) BLS anticipates that survey year 2019 will be the last for this pilot DJTR study, after which results will be assessed to determine how best to implement the collection of these data along with days away from work cases in future survey years. The BLS regards the collection of these DJTR cases as significant in its coverage of the American workforce. III. Desired Focus of Comments The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in comments that: • 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. • 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. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • 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, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

Title of Collection: Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST): State Coordinators Questionnaire. OMB Number: 3145–0241. Overview of this Information Collection: The PAEMST is a White House program established by Congress in 1983 authorizing the President to bestow up to 108 awards each year to teachers of mathematics and science at the elementary and secondary levels. The NSF is the designated federal agency for administration of this Presidential program. Awards are given to mathematics and science (including computer science) teachers from each of the 50 states and four U.S. jurisdictions. The jurisdictions are Washington DC; Puerto Rico; Department of Defense Education Activity schools; and the U.S. territories as a group (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). The award recognizes those teachers who develop and implement a high-quality instructional program that is informed by content knowledge and enhances student learning. Since the program’s inception, more than 4,300 teachers have been recognized for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science (including computer science) education. The State Coordinator (SC) manages the PAEMST program within his or her state or jurisdiction. SCs recruit eligible nominees, select and assign mentors to PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 nominees, coordinate the selection committee, and plan local recognition events within their State. They also carry out the responsibilities as noted in the ‘‘Operational Handbook for StateLevel Science and Mathematics Coordinators.’’ The purpose of this survey is to seek feedback from the 120 SCs regarding PAEMST management within their state or jurisdiction. The NSF, PAEMST support team will ask directed questions using the survey to gather information that may specifically address the methods and recruitment efforts that SCs use to support the attracting of prospective award nominees. Additional survey areas may also include: • • • • • Applicant Mentoring Mentor Training State selection Committee State selection Process Applicant and State Finalist Notification and Recognition • In-kind contributions The survey will evaluate the impact SCs have on attracting prospective award nominees to PAEMST. This will be conducted as a web-based survey. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 30–40 minutes for State Coordinators. Respondents: Individuals. Estimated Number of Responses per Form: 120 Coordinators. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 80 hours (120 Coordinators at 40 minutes per survey = 80 hours). Frequency of Response: One per application cycle. Comments: Comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the PAEMST functions, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the NSF’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; (d) ways to 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Section 24(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 
requires the Secretary of Labor to develop and maintain an effective 
program of collection, compilation, and analysis of statistics on 
occupational injuries and illnesses. The Commissioner of Labor 
Statistics has been delegated the responsibility for ``Furthering the 
purpose of the Occupational Safety and Health Act by developing and 
maintaining an effective program of collection, compilation, analysis 
and publication of occupational safety and health statistics.'' The BLS 
fulfills this responsibility, in part, by conducting the Survey of 
Occupational Injuries and Illnesses in conjunction with participating 
state statistical agencies. The BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and 
Illnesses provides the Nation's primary indicator of the progress 
towards achieving the goal of safer and healthier workplaces. The 
survey produces the overall rate of occurrence of work injuries and 
illnesses by industry which can be compared to prior years to produce 
measures of the rate of change. These data are used to assess the 
Nation's progress in improving the safety and health of America's work 
places; to prioritize scarce federal and state resources; to guide the 
development of injury and illness prevention strategies; and to support 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state safety 
and health standards and research. Data are essential for evaluating 
the effectiveness of federal and state programs for improving work 
place safety and health. For these reasons, it is necessary to provide 
estimates separately for participating states.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. The survey measures the 
overall rate of occurrence of work injuries and illnesses by industry 
for private industry, state governments, and local governments. For the 
more serious injuries and illnesses, those with days away from work 
(DAFW), the survey provides detailed information on the injured/ill 
worker (age, sex, race, industry, occupation, and length of service), 
the time in shift, and the circumstances of the injuries and illnesses 
classified by standardized codes (nature of the injury/illness, part of 
body affected, primary and secondary sources of the injury/illness, and 
the event or exposure which produced the injury/illness).
    Beginning with the 2011 survey year, BLS began testing the 
collection of case and demographic data for injury and illness cases 
that require only days of job transfer or restriction (DJTR). The 
purpose of this on-going pilot study is to evaluate collection of these 
cases and to learn more about occupational injuries and illnesses that 
resulted in days of job transfer or work restriction.
    For survey year 2019, case circumstance and worker characteristics 
for DJTR cases will be collected for the following six NAICS * industry 
subsectors in private industry:

Crop production (NAICS 111)
Transportation equipment manufacturing (NAICS 336)
Food and beverage stores (NAICS 445)
Truck transportation (NAICS 484)
Amusement, gambling, and recreation industries (NAICS 713)
Food services and drinking places (NAICS 722)

    BLS anticipates that survey year 2019 will be the last for this 
pilot DJTR study, after which results will be assessed to determine how 
best to implement the collection of these data along with days away 
from work cases in future survey years. The BLS regards the collection 
of these DJTR cases as significant in its coverage of the American 
workforce.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     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.
     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.
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected.
     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, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
