Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 78 / Tuesday, April 25, 2017 / Notices OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N–3609, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693–2222. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The paperwork provisions of the Standard specify requirements for: marking the rated load of cranes; preparing certification records to verify the inspection of the crane hooks, hoist chains, and rope; and preparing reports of rated load tests for repaired hooks or modified cranes. Records and reports must be maintained and disclosed upon request. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements are necessary for the proper performance of the Agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) of the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply-for example, by using automated or other VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Apr 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 technological information collection and transmission techniques. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting an adjustment decrease of 35 burden hours, from 321,380 to 321,345 burden hours. This adjustment decrease in burden hours is due to the Agency removing burden hours for the disclosure of information during an inspection. Table 1 below describes each of the requested burden hours. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Overhead and Gantry Cranes (29 CFR 1910.179). OMB Control Number: 1218–0224. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 642,566. Frequency: On occasion; monthly; semi-annually. Average Time per Response: Various. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 321,345. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0. IV.

payments to the Register of Copyrights as required by the statutory 
license set forth in section 111 of the Copyright Act for the 
retransmission to cable subscribers of over-the-air television and

Judges (Judges) oversee distribution of royalties to copyright owners 
whose works were included in a qualifying transmission and who timely 
filed a claim for royalties. Allocation of the royalties collected 
occurs in one of two ways.
    In the first instance, the Judges may authorize distribution in 
accordance with a negotiated settlement among all claiming parties. 17 
U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(A). If all claimants do not reach agreement with 
respect to the royalties, the Judges must conduct a proceeding to 
determine the distribution of any royalties that remain in controversy. 
17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(B). Alternatively, the Judges may, on motion of 
claimants and on notice to all interested parties, authorize a partial 
distribution of royalties, reserving on deposit sufficient funds to 
resolve identified disputes. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(C), 801(b)(3)(C).
    On February 17, 2017, representatives of the Allocation Phase 
(formerly Phase I) Parties (``Allocation Phase Claimants'') \1\ filed 
with the Judges a motion requesting a partial distribution amounting to 
60% of the 2015 cable royalty funds pursuant to section 801(b)(3)(C) of 
the Copyright Act. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(3)(C). That section requires that, 
before ruling on the motion, the Judges publish a notice in the Federal 
Register seeking responses to the motion for partial distribution to 
ascertain whether any claimant entitled to receive the subject 
royalties has a reasonable objection to the requested distribution.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Allocation Phase Claimants are Program Suppliers; Joint 
Sports Claimants; Public Television Claimants; National Association 
of Broadcasters; American Society of Composers, Authors and 
Publishers; Broadcast Music, Inc.; SESAC, Inc.; Canadian Claimants 
Group; Devotional Claimants, and National Public Radio. In the 
Allocation Phase of a cable royalty distribution proceeding, the 
Judges allocate royalties among certain categories of claimants 
whose broadcast programming has been retransmitted by cable systems. 
The ``Allocation Phase Claimants'' who are the moving parties in 
this requested partial distribution represent traditional claimant 
categories. The Judges have not and do not by this notice determine 
the universe of claimant categories for 2015 cable retransmission 
royalties.

    Accordingly, this Notice seeks comments from interested claimants 
on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the 
distribution of 60% of the 2015 cable royalty funds to the Allocation 
Phase Claimants. Parties objecting to the partial distribution must 
advise the Judges of the existence and extent of all objections by the 
end of the comment period. The Judges will not consider any objections 
with respect to the partial distribution motion that come to their 
attention after the close of the comment period.
    The Judges have caused the Motion of the Allocation Phase Claimants 
for Partial Distribution to be posted on the Copyright Royalty Board 
Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb.
