Agency: Department of Labor, Mine Safety and Health Administration

Miners working near these machines face pinning, crushing, and striking hazards that result in accidents involving life threatening injuries and death. The proposal would strengthen protections for miners by reducing the potential for pinning, crushing, or striking accidents in underground coal mines. MSHA is also interested in the application of these proposed requirements to underground metal and nonmetal mines.

Document Number: 2015-19226
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-08-18
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
This document primarily proposes to amend OSHA regulations to remove the detailed descriptions of State plan coverage, purely historical data, and other unnecessarily codified information. In addition, this document proposes to move most of the general provisions of subpart A of part 1952 into part 1902, where the general regulations on State plan criteria are found. It also proposes to amend several other OSHA regulations to delete references to part 1952, which would no longer apply. The purpose of these proposed revisions is to eliminate the unnecessary codification of material in the Code of Federal Regulations and save the time and funds currently expended in publicizing State plan revisions. The proposed streamlining of OSHA State plan regulations would not change the areas of coverage or any other substantive components of any State plan. It also does not affect the rights and responsibilities of the State plans, or any employers or employees, except to eliminate the burden on State plan designees to keep paper copies of approved State plans and plan supplements in an office, and to submit multiple copies of proposed State plan documents to OSHA. This document also contains a request for comments for an Information Collection Request (ICR) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), which covers all collection of information requirements in OSHA State plan regulations.

On June 29, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2015 (TAARA 2015), title IV of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114-27. In accordance with Section 405(a) of TAARA 2015, which amended the Trade Act of 1974, Public Law 93-618 (``the Trade Act''), the Director of the Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance, Employment and Training Administration (OTAA) has taken the following action for petitions that were filed with the Secretary of Labor under section 221(a) of the Trade Act on or after January 1, 2014, and before June 29, 2015, and are identified in the Appendices to this notice. OTAA has reopened investigations of petitions identified in Appendix A to reconsider all negative determinations on petitions filed on or after January 1, 2014, and before June 29, 2015, and will further investigate those petitions to determine whether the workers are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under the provisions of section 222 of the Trade Act in effect on June 29, 2015, which were in effect before January 1, 2014. If eligible under these requirements, OTAA will certify the group of workers as eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under title II of the Trade Act, as amended by TAARA 2015. OTAA also is continuing to investigate those petitions identified in Appendix B for which no determination was issued before June 29, 2015, to determine whether the workers are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under the provisions of section 222 of the Trade Act in effect on June 29, 2015, which were in effect before January 1, 2014. If eligible under these requirements, OTAA will certify the group of workers as eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under title II of the Trade Act. Further, worker groups that did not submit petitions between January 1, 2014 and June 29, 2015, but wish to be considered under the group eligibility for workers based on the 2015 Program may file a new petition within 90 days of enactment of the new 2015 law which was signed by President Barak Obama on June 29, 2015. This would include service sector workers as well as worker groups whose jobs are adversely affected by trade from countries that are not parties to Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with the United States, including China and India. While all petitions filed on and after June 29, 2015, will be investigated under the 2015 Program worker group eligibility criteria, the TAARA 2015 provides that for petitions filed by MIDNIGHT (12:00 AM EASTERN TIME), SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2015, that are certified, the certification will cover all members of the worker group who are separated or threatened with separations during the period beginning January 1, 2014, instead of a beginning date of no more than one year before the date of the petition, and generally ending two years after the date of certification. Each of those certifications will describe the worker group and specify the January 1, 2014, beginning date and the ending dates of the certification period.

Agency: Department of Labor, Office of the Secretary
The United States Department of Labor (DOL or the Department) proposes to amend its general regulations regarding the equal treatment of religious organizations in Department of Labor programs and the protection of religious liberty for Department of Labor social service providers and beneficiaries. Specifically, this proposed rule would: Clarify the definition of direct and indirect financial assistance, replace the term ``inherently religious activities'' with the term ``explicitly religious activities'' and define the latter term as ``including activities that involve overt religious content such as worship, religious instruction, or proselytization,'' require faith- based organizations administering a program supported with direct DOL financial assistance to provide beneficiaries with a written notice informing them of their religious liberty rights, including the right to a referral to an alternative provider if the beneficiary objects to the religious character of the organization providing services, and add a provision stating that decisions about awards of Federal financial assistance must be free from political interference and based on merit. These changes are necessitated by the issuance in November 2010, of Executive Order 13559, Fundamental Principles and Policymaking Criteria for Partnerships with Faith-Based and Other Neighborhood Organizations.
