An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number and the agency informs VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:15 Jun 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information that such persons are not required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Forest Service Title: Fire and Aviation Management Medical Qualifications Program. OMB Control Number: 0596–0164. Summary of Collection: The Protection Act of 1922 (16 U.S.C. 594) authorizes the Forest Service (FS) to fight fires on National Forest System lands. Title 5 CFR, Part 339, authorizes the FS to establish medical qualification standards and require pre-appointment medical examinations, regular recurring periodic examinations after appointment, and whenever there is a direct question about a firefighter’s continued ability to meet the medical qualification standards. The information collected pertains to an individual’s health status and health history. The collection of this information and use thereof are consistent with the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 552a (Privacy Act of 1974). Need and Use of the Information: Individuals seeking recertification or employment as a new firefighter with the FS or Department of Interior (DOI) must complete the Health Screening Questionnaire (HSQ). FS and DOI will collect information from potential applicants using forms FS–5100–30, Work Capacity Test Informed Consent and FS–5100–31, Health Screening Questionnaire. Applicants will also need to complete the Wildland Firefighter Medical Qualifications Program Medical Exam and a SelfCertification Statement and Blood Pressure Check. Wildland firefighters perform long hours of arduous labor in adverse conditions. The information collected is used to determine whether an individual being considered for a position can carry out those duties in a manner that will not place the candidate or coworkers unduly at risk due to inadequate physical fitness and health. If the information is not collected, the Government’s liability risk is high, special needs of an individual may not be known, or the screening of an applicant’s physical suitability would be greatly inhibited.

Food and Nutrition Service Title: School Nutrition and Meal Cost Study-II (SNMCS–II). OMB Control Number: 0584–NEW. Summary of Collection: Section 28(a) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act authorizes the USDA Secretary to conduct performance assessments of the school meal programs, including the nutritional quality of the meals and the costs of producing them. The SNMCS–II will provide a comprehensive picture of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and will provide critical information about the nutritional quality, cost, and acceptability of school meals seven years after major reforms began being phased in during the 2012–2013 school year. This study is broken down into two sub-studies: The ‘‘mainland study’’ and the ‘‘outlying areas cost study’’ and has four broad objectives including (1) describing the School Food Authority (SFA) and school environment, food service operating policies and practices, student participation, and other characteristics of schools and SFAs participating in NSLP and SBP, (2) determining the food and nutrient content of school meals and afterschool snacks and the overall nutritional quality of these meals and snacks; (3) determining the cost to produce reimbursable school lunches and breakfasts, including indirect and local administrative costs, and examining the ratio of revenues to costs; and (4) describing student characteristics, participation, student/parent satisfaction, plate waste, and students’ dietary intakes. This study will update previous data collected during SY 2014– 2015 for the School Nutrition and Meal Cost Study (SNMCS–I). Need and Use of the Information: This voluntary study will collect data from state agencies, school food authorities, local education authorities, schools, food service management companies, students, and parents/ guardians. The data collected from the ‘‘mainland study’’ will provide Federal, State, and local policymakers with current information about how federally sponsored school meal programs are operating. The findings from SNMCS–II will be compared to those from SNMCS–I to explore trends in food service operations, the nutrient content of school meals, meal costs and revenues, and student participation, plate waste, and dietary intakes. The study will also examine relationships among the key domains, especially VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:15 Jun 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 among nutritional quality, cost, and student participation. Data collected from the ‘‘outlying areas cost study’’ will estimate the costs of producing reimbursable school meals in Alaska, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands, and will examine the relationship of costs to revenues in these States and Territories.

DATES: The aforementioned in-quota aggregate quantities are established as of June 27, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Souleymane Diaby, (202) 720–2916, Souleymane.Diaby@fas.usda.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The provisions of paragraph (a)(i) of the Additional U.S. Note 5, Chapter 17 in the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) authorize the Secretary to establish the in-quota tariff-rate quota (TRQ) amounts (expressed in terms of raw value) for imports of raw cane sugar SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30691 and certain sugars, syrups, and molasses that may be entered under the subheadings of the HTS subject to the lower tier of duties during each fiscal year. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) is responsible for the allocation of these quantities among supplying countries and areas. Section 359(k) of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, as amended, requires that at the beginning of the quota year the Secretary of Agriculture establish the TRQs for raw cane sugar and refined sugars at the minimum levels necessary to comply with obligations under international trade agreements, with the exception of specialty sugar. The Secretary’s authority under paragraph (a)(i) of the Additional U.S. Note 5, Chapter 17 in the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) and Section 359(k) of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, as amended, has been delegated to the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs (7 CFR 2.26). Notice is hereby given that I have determined, in accordance with paragraph (a)(i) of the Additional U.S. Note 5, Chapter 17 in the HTS and section 359(k) of the 1938 Act, that an aggregate quantity of up to 1,117,195 MTRV of raw cane sugar may be entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption during FY 2020. This is the minimum amount to which the United States is committed under the WTO Uruguay Round Agreements. I have further determined that an aggregate quantity of 192,000 MTRV of sugars, syrups, and molasses (refined sugar) may be entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption during FY 2020. This quantity includes the minimum amount to which the United States is committed under the WTO Uruguay Round Agreements, 22,000 MTRV, of which 20,344 MTRV is established for any sugars, syrups and molasses, and 1,656 MTRV is reserved for specialty sugar. An additional amount of 170,000 MTRV is added to the specialty sugar TRQ for a total of 171,656 MTRV. Because the specialty sugar TRQ is first-come, first-served, tranches are needed to allow for orderly marketing throughout the year. The FY 2020 specialty sugar TRQ will be opened in five tranches. The first tranche, totaling 1,656 MTRV, will open October 1, 2019. All specialty sugars are eligible for entry under this tranche. The second tranche of 50,000 MTRV will open on October 9, 2019. The third tranche of 55,000 MTRV will open on January 22, 2020. The fourth tranche of 35,000 MTRV will open on April 15, 2020. The fifth E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1

areas cost study'' and has four broad objectives including (1) 
describing the School Food Authority (SFA) and school environment, food 
service operating policies and practices, student participation, and 
other characteristics of schools and SFAs participating in NSLP and 
SBP, (2) determining the food and nutrient content of school meals and
