Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records

Grant Feeds - Mon, 01/20/2020 - 23:00
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-108, notice is hereby given that the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), a component within the United States Department of Justice (DOJ or Department), proposes to develop a new system of records notice titled COPS Management System: NexGen (CMS:NxG), JUSTICE/COPS-003. The COPS Office proposes to establish this system of records to consolidate its various business databases, applications, and web applications under one umbrella to support the grant-making and grant management processes from the pre-award phase, including posting solicitations and administering applications for COPS Office funding, to the post-award phase, including budget modifications and award monitoring activities. Previously, grant-making and grant management was handled by a legacy system covered under the DOJ-003 Correspondence Management Systems (CMS) SORN. Because certain aspects of NexGen are more consistent with a separate system of records, COPS is issuing a new SORN to make that clear.

California's Meal and Rest Break Rules for Drivers of Passenger-Carrying Commercial Motor Vehicles; Petition for Determination of Preemption

Grant Feeds - Mon, 01/20/2020 - 23:00
The FMCSA grants the petition submitted by the American Bus Association (ABA) requesting a determination that the State of California's Meal and Rest Break rules (MRB rules) are preempted under 49 U.S.C. 31141 as applied to passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicle drivers subject to FMCSA's hours of service regulations. Federal law provides for preemption of State laws on commercial motor vehicle safety that are additional to or more stringent than Federal regulations if they (1) have no safety benefit; (2) are incompatible with Federal regulations; or (3) would cause an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce. The FMCSA has determined that California's MRB rules are laws on commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safety, that they are more stringent than the Agency's hours of service regulations, that they have no safety benefits that extend beyond those already provided by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, that they are incompatible with the Federal hours of service regulations, and that they cause an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce. The California MRB rules, therefore, are preempted under 49 U.S.C. 31141(c).

Applications for New Awards; Native Hawaiian Education Program; Amendment

Grant Feeds - Mon, 01/20/2020 - 23:00
On December 13, 2019, we published in the Federal Register a notice inviting applications (NIA) for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2020 for the Native Hawaiian Education (NHE) program, Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 84.362A. Since that time, Congress passed and the President signed the Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2020 (Act), which provides funding for the awards under this competition. For fiscal year (FY) 2020, the Act overrides the limitation in section 6205(b) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA), to provide that the 5 percent limitation on the use of funds for administrative purposes applies only to direct administrative costs. This document amends the NIA to clearly indicate that the administrative cost cap in ESEA section 6205(b) applies only to direct administrative costs for grants awarded using FY 2020 appropriations.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requesting that any consumer organizations interested in participating in the selection of voting and/or nonvoting consumer representatives to serve on its advisory committees or panels notify FDA in writing.

Nominees recommended to serve as a voting or nonvoting consumer representative may be self-nominated or may be nominated by a consumer organization.
