public comments. Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until 
September 18, 2000. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 
1320.10.

of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of 
the methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information
