This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

1. An Evaluation Study of Tuberculosis Control and Prevention Measures Implemented in Large City and County Jails—New—The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for HIV, STD, TB Prevention (NCHSTP), Division of TB Elimination, Field Services proposes to conduct a survey to determine the extent that jails have implemented the 1996 recommendations of the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis, Prevention and Control of Tuberculosis in Correctional Facilities [MMWR 1996:45 (No. RR-8)]. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine to what extent the recommendations have been implemented and to identify barriers for implementation of the recommendations. The objectives are to define the knowledge of the recommendations among correctional staff, to identify barriers for the adoption and implementation of the recommendations, and to initiate a dialogue between public health and correctional officials on how to utilize the study results for improving TB control and prevention in the jails.
This project will assess the types and adequacy of the TB control measures that are in place in jails. The first component of this project is a survey of the largest jails to define the size of the TB problem in their populations, to review the infection control procedures that are in place, and determine the tracking mechanisms for information concerning skin test results and completion of therapy. The second component consists of on-site observation of the infection control process to observe the processing and evaluation of inmates and the infection control infrastructure (e.g., isolation procedures).
The evaluation project will be voluntary and only correctional staff will participate; no prisoners will be interviewed or asked to complete a written survey. The total burden hours are estimated to be 138.
