Overview of This Information Collection 1. Type of Information Collection: Reinstatement, with change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired. 2. Title of the Form/Collection: Annual Survey of Jails (ASJ). 3. Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department of Justice sponsoring the collection: The ASJ contains one form— CJ–5: 2020 Annual Survey of Jails. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), in the Office of Justice Programs. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Approximately 950 jails, representing approximately 2,920 local jails (city, county, regional, and private), will be requested to provide information for the following categories: (a) At midyear (last weekday in the month of June), the total number of inmates confined in jail facilities and the total number of persons under jail supervision, but not confined; (b) At midyear, inmate counts by sex, juvenile status, race/Hispanic origin, probation and parole status, conviction status, severity of charge (felony or misdemeanor), and U.S. citizenship status; (c) At midyear, the numbers of inmates held for federal authorities, state prison authorities, American Indian or Alaska Native tribal governments, and other local jails; (d) On the weekend prior to midyear, whether the jail had a weekend program that allows offenders to serve their sentences of confinement only on PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4707 weekends, and the number of program participants; (e) Rated capacity at midyear; (f) The date and count for the greatest number of confined inmates during the 30-day period in June; (g) The average daily population by sex during the 12-month period from July 1 of last year to June 30 of current year; (h) The number of new admissions into jail, and final discharges from jail, by sex during the 12-month period from July 1 of last year to June 30 of current year; (i) At midyear, the number of staff members employed by the facility by sex and occupation (i.e., correctional officers or other staff). The ASJ is the only national collection that tracks annual changes in the local jail population in the United States. The ASJ is fielded every year except in the years when BJS conducts the Census of Jails (OMB Control No. 1121–0100). BJS requests clearance for the 2020–22 ASJ under OMB Control No. 1121–0094. The ASJ was last approved under OMB Control No. 1121– 0094 (exp. date 01/31/2019), where it was bundled with the Mortality in Correctional Institutions-Jails (MCI, formerly the Deaths in Custody Reporting Program, OMB Control No. 1121–0249) and Survey of Jails in Indian Country (OMB Control No. 1121– 0329). In 2017, the ASJ was separated from the MCI-Jails and became a standalone collection again. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: During data collection in 2020, 950 respondents will each take an average of 75 minutes to complete the CJ–5 form (see table 1). Data quality follow-up is needed for an estimated 70% of the respondents (665) and the validation will run an average of 10 minutes for each respondent. In addition, about 60 jails will be contacted to verify facility operational status and point-of-contact information, which takes 5 minutes each on average. These estimates are based on previous estimates of item burden and input received from participants in the 2018 jail collection cognitive test (generic OMB clearance, Control No. 1121– 0249). Data collection in 2021 and 2022 will involve the same number of respondents and require the same level of burden. In total, there is an estimated 3,912 total burden hours associated with this collection for the three years of data collection, or approximately 1,304 hours for each year.

K.P. Kauffman Company, Inc., Civil Action No. 1:18–cv–02559–RBJ. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for violations of the Clean Air Act, the Colorado Air Pollution Prevention and Control Act (‘‘Colorado Act’’), Colorado’s federally approved State Implementation Plan (‘‘Colorado SIP’’), and Colorado Air Quality Control Commission Regulation Number 7 (‘‘Regulation No. 7’’) at condensate tank systems (referred to in the consent decree as ‘‘tank systems’’) owned and operated by K.P. Kauffman Company, Inc. (‘‘KPK’’) in the DenverJulesburg Basin in Colorado, an area designated as non-attainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ground-level ozone. The violations relate to alleged failures to adequately design, operate, and maintain vapor control systems at the tank systems, resulting in emissions of volatile organic compounds (‘‘VOC’’) and other pollutants to the atmosphere. The proposed consent decree requires KPK to implement injunctive relief at 67 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:54 Jan 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 condensate tank systems to ensure that its vapor control systems adequately capture and control potential VOC emissions. The consent decree design, inspection, and preventative maintenance measures are intended to result in substantial reductions in VOC emissions from KPK tank systems throughout Colorado’s Denver-Julesburg Basin. In addition to injunctive relief, the proposed Consent Decree requires KPK to pay a $1 million civil penalty, split evenly between the United States and the State of Colorado, and to undertake projects to mitigate environmental harm. Entering into and fully complying with the proposed consent decree will release KPK from past civil liability at the tank systems and associated vapor control systems for violations of the Colorado SIP and Regulation No. 7 relating to VOC emissions from condensate storage tanks. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the consent decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and should refer to United States, et al. v. K.P. Kauffman Company, Inc., D.J. Ref.

Overview of This Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection: Reinstatement, with change, of a 
previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
    2. Title of the Form/Collection: Annual Survey of Jails (ASJ).
    3. Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
Department of Justice sponsoring the collection: The ASJ contains one 
form--CJ-5: 2020 Annual Survey of Jails. The applicable component 
within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics 
(BJS), in the Office of Justice Programs.
    4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Approximately 950 jails, representing 
approximately 2,920 local jails (city, county, regional, and private), 
will be requested to provide information for the following categories:
    (a) At midyear (last weekday in the month of June), the total 
number of inmates confined in jail facilities and the total number of 
persons under jail supervision, but not confined;
    (b) At midyear, inmate counts by sex, juvenile status, race/
Hispanic origin, probation and parole status, conviction status, 
severity of charge (felony or misdemeanor), and U.S. citizenship 
status;
    (c) At midyear, the numbers of inmates held for federal 
authorities, state prison authorities, American Indian or Alaska Native 
tribal governments, and other local jails;
    (d) On the weekend prior to midyear, whether the jail had a weekend 
program that allows offenders to serve their sentences of confinement 
only on weekends, and the number of program participants;
    (e) Rated capacity at midyear;
    (f) The date and count for the greatest number of confined inmates 
during the 30-day period in June;
    (g) The average daily population by sex during the 12-month period 
from July 1 of last year to June 30 of current year;
    (h) The number of new admissions into jail, and final discharges 
from jail, by sex during the 12-month period from July 1 of last year 
to June 30 of current year;
    (i) At midyear, the number of staff members employed by the 
facility by sex and occupation (i.e., correctional officers or other 
staff).
    The ASJ is the only national collection that tracks annual changes 
in the local jail population in the United States. The ASJ is fielded 
every year except in the years when BJS conducts the Census of Jails 
(OMB Control No. 1121-0100). BJS requests clearance for the 2020-22 ASJ 
under OMB Control No. 1121-0094. The ASJ was last approved under OMB 
Control No. 1121-0094 (exp. date 01/31/2019), where it was bundled with 
the Mortality in Correctional Institutions-Jails (MCI, formerly the 
Deaths in Custody Reporting Program, OMB Control No. 1121-0249) and 
Survey of Jails in Indian Country (OMB Control No. 1121-0329). In 2017, 
the ASJ was separated from the MCI-Jails and became a stand-alone 
collection again.
    5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: During data 
collection in 2020, 950 respondents will each take an average of 75 
minutes to complete the CJ-5 form (see table 1). Data quality follow-up 
is needed for an estimated 70% of the respondents (665) and the 
validation will run an average of 10 minutes for each respondent. In 
addition, about 60 jails will be contacted to verify facility 
operational status and point-of-contact information, which takes 5 
minutes each on average. These estimates are based on previous 
estimates of item burden and input received from participants in the 
2018 jail collection cognitive test (generic OMB clearance, Control No. 
1121-0249). Data collection in 2021 and 2022 will involve the same 
number of respondents and require the same level of burden. In total, 
there is an estimated 3,912 total burden hours associated with this 
collection for the three years of data collection, or approximately 
1,304 hours for each year.
