Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 31478 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 112 / Monday, June 14, 2021 / Notices authorized to protect the health of livestock, poultry, and aquaculture populations in the United States by preventing the introduction and interstate spread of serious diseases and pests of livestock and for eradicating such diseases within the United States when feasible. This authority has been delegated to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). In connection with this mission, APHIS operates the National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), which collects on a national basis statistically valid and scientifically sound data on the prevalence and economic importance of livestock poultry and aquaculture disease risk factors. NAHMS’ studies have evolved into a collaborative government and industry initiative to help determine the most effective means of preventing and controlling diseases of livestock. APHIS is the only Federal agency responsible for collecting data on livestock. Participation in any NAHMS study is voluntary and all data are confidential. APHIS plans to conduct a Bison 2022 Study to obtain information about the livestock population and to provide a foundation for possible future studies. The objectives of the study are to: • Describe status and changes in the U.S. bison industry from 2014 to 2022, including operation characteristics (such as inventory, size, and type), production purposes, and marketing practices. • Describe current U.S. bison industry production practices and challenges, including animal management and welfare, nutrition and range management, and environmental stewardship. • Describe health management and biosecurity practices on U.S. bison operations. • Describe producer-reported occurrence of select health problems, associated management practices or actions, and causes of bison mortality. The study will consist of two collection phases. The first phase consists of a producer informed consent form and a self-administered paper or electronic survey administered by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The second, biologics phase, includes a microbe collection record, two fecal parasite collection records, and a forage collection record, each documenting biologic samples collected and submitted by producers who choose to participate in the second phase to receive biologic results from their herds. All producers in the study will receive a study evaluation upon conclusion of the study. The information collected will be used by VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Jun 11, 2021 Jkt 253001 APHIS to describe current bison health and management practices, help policymakers and industry make informed decisions, help researchers and private enterprise identify and focus on vital issues related to bison health and productivity, facilitate the education of future producers and veterinarians, and conduct economic analyses of the health and production of the U.S. bison industry. On March 20, 2012, NAHMS was recognized by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a statistical unit under the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA). All information acquired under the Bison 2022 Study’s NASS phase will be used for statistical purposes only and will be treated as confidential in accordance with CIPSEA guidelines. Only NAHMS staff and designated agents will be permitted access to individual-level data. The biologics phase of the study will not be collected under CIPSEA, rather will be protected as Confidential Business Information as defined in 19 CFR 201.6. Respondent information will be protected by ensuring that no identifying information is linked to the data. We are asking OMB to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.25 hours per response. Respondents: Bison owners and producers. Estimated annual number of respondents: 2,000. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1.5. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated annual number of responses: 2,994. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 3,741 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 9th day of June 2021. Mark Davidson, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Agency: U.S. Census Bureau, Commerce. Title: School District Review Program. OMB Control Number: 0607–0987. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular submission, Request for an Extension, without Change, of a Currently Approved Collection. Number of Respondents: 102. • Annotation Phase: 51. • Verification Phase: 51. Average Hours per Response: 40 hours. • Annotation Phase: 30 hours. • Verification Phase: 10 hours. Burden Hours: 2,040 hours. • Annotation Phase: 1,530 hours. • Verification Phase: 510 hours. Needs and Uses: The School District Review Program (SDRP) is one of many voluntary geographic partnership programs at the U.S. Census Bureau. The SDRP collects school district information and boundaries to update the Census Bureau’s geographic database of addresses, streets, and boundaries on an annual basis. The Census Bureau uses its geographic database to tie demographic data from surveys and the decennial census to locations and areas, such as cities, school districts, and counties. To tabulate statistics by localities, the Census Bureau must have accurate addresses and boundaries. While the geographic programs differ in requirements, timeframe, and participants, SDRP and the other geographic programs all follow the same basic process. The Census Bureau invites eligible participants to the program. For SDRP, the sponsor, the National Center for Education Statistics invites the state departments of education/state Title I coordinators to designate mapping coordinators. If they elect to participate in the program, participants receive a copy of the boundaries the Census Bureau has on file. SDRP participants receive free customized mapping software. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Jun 11, 2021 Jkt 253001 Participants review the boundaries in the Census Bureau provided digital maps and update them if needed. The mapping coordinator collects updates from local school districts, state education officials, county planners, and state data centers, and ensures completion of submissions within the SDRP’s timeframe. The respondents for the SDRP are the Title I coordinators and mapping coordinators from the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Participants return their updates to the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau then updates its geographic database with boundary updates from participants to use the newly updated boundaries to tabulate statistics. The Census Bureau requests state officials to review and update the school district information the Census Bureau has on file, through the SDRP. The school district information obtained through this program will assist in forming the Census Bureau’s estimates of the number of children age five through seventeen, in families in poverty, for each school district. State officials will provide the Census Bureau with updates and corrections to the Federal School District Local Education Agency identification numbers, school district boundaries, school names, grade ranges, and levels for which each school district is financially responsible. These Census Bureau estimates are the basis of the Title I allocation for each school district. The SDRP is of vital importance for each state’s allocation under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, Public Law 114– 95. The U.S. Department of Education uses these estimates to allocate more than $14 billion in Title I funding annually. The SDRP encompasses Type 1 and Type 2 school districts as defined by the NCES. Type 1 is a local school district that is not a component of a supervisory union. Type 2 is a local school district component of a supervisory union sharing a superintendent and administrative services with other local school districts. The SDRP consists of two phases—the Annotation and Verification Phases. In the Annotation Phase, the Census Bureau provides mapping coordinators with materials containing the most current school district boundaries and information the Census Bureau has on file for their state. Mapping coordinators review the data and submit changes to the school district boundaries or associated information to the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau reviews and processes the information submitted by PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31479 mapping coordinators, and the Census Bureau updates all verified changes into the Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) database. In the Verification Phase, mapping coordinators verify that the Census Bureau accurately and completely updated the MAF/TIGER database with updates submitted during the Annotation Phase. In the Annotation Phase, mapping coordinators gather school district updates from school district superintendents and other state officials and use Census Bureau-provided materials to review and update school district boundaries, names, codes, and geographic relationships. The Census Bureau provides mapping coordinators with school district listings, spatial data in shapefile format, blank submission logs, and Geographic Update Partnership Software (GUPS). The school district listings consist of school district inventories, school names, levels, grade ranges, and other data about school districts within their state. If the mapping coordinator has nonspatial updates (e.g., name changes, simple consolidations, simple dissolutions, and others), the mapping coordinator updates the Census Bureau provided submission log with those changes. If a mapping coordinator needs to perform spatial updates to a school district boundary, the mapping coordinator uses Census Bureau provided GUPS and spatial data to make updates. GUPS, SDRP version, is a Census Bureau-created, user-friendly, free digital mapping tool for mapping coordinators. It contains all the functionality necessary for mapping coordinators to spatially make and validate their school district updates. Once mapping coordinators have reviewed and updated the school district information for their state, the mapping coordinator sends it to the Census Bureau, using Secure Web Incoming Module (SWIM), a web portal for uploading SDRP submissions. The Census Bureau will update the MAF/ TIGER database with the updates sent by the mapping coordinator. The Annotation Phase begins for the SDRP in August/September of each year. The deadline to submit SDRP Annotation Phase to Census Bureau is the last workday in December of each year. In the Verification Phase, the Census Bureau sends mapping coordinators newly created listings and digital files, and mapping coordinators use the SDRP verification module in GUPS to review these files and verify that the Census Bureau correctly captured their submitted information. The mapping E:\FR\FM\14JNN1.SGM 14JNN1 31480 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 112 / Monday, June 14, 2021 / Notices coordinator can tag the area of issue and send the information to the Census Bureau to make corrections if the Census Bureau did not incorporate their boundary changes or other updates correctly.
