Download as PDF 31540 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 104 / Wednesday, June 1, 2005 / Notices supportive role in this project rather than be the lead agency, and this is to provide clarification that WIBs are not eligible applicants for this SGA. Further, the requirement for a letter of support from the WIB is intended simply to demonstrate that the WIB will play a supportive role in the project by providing employment services for released prisoners in One-Stop Centers. DOL encourages WIBs to work with any faith-based or community organization (FBCO) that wishes to apply for these grants. FBCOs who have not received a letter from the WIB may instead demonstrate in its proposal the steps that they have taken to secure such a letter. 2. Page 16855 of the SGA indicates that applicants should limit the share of funds for program administration, including technical assistance and oversight, to 10 percent of the amount for which they are applying. We are modifying this to 15 percent of the amount for which you are applying. 3. Page 16859 of the SGA indicates that an FBCO can be listed as a subgrantee in more than one application, but that they will only be able to receive a sub-grant award from one grant. This was too restrictive and there are instances in which it would be appropriate for an FBCO or other organization to be awarded a sub-grant in two or more grants. The SGA is now modified to allow an FBCO or other organization to receive a sub-grant award in more than one grant. 4. Page 16860 of the SGA indicates that applicants may apply online at http://www.grants.gov. The mandatory form SF 424A has just been added for download. If you have previously downloaded the application package, please download the package again. If you do not download the package with the SF 424A, Grants.gov will reject your application submission with errors.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with section 6(b)(5) of the Wagner-Peyser Act, 29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(5), the Employment and Training Administration is publishing final planning allotments for each state for PY 2005 (July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006). Preliminary planning estimates were published in Federal Register Volume 70, No. 57, page 15515 on March 25, 2005. Funds are distributed in accordance with formula criteria established in section 6(a) and (b) of the Wagner-Peyser Act. Civilian labor force (CLF) and unemployment data for Calendar Year 2004 are used in making the formula calculations. The total amount of funds currently available for distribution is PO 00000 Frm 00130 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 $746,301,440. The Secretary of Labor shall set aside up to 3 percent of the total available funds to assure that each state will have sufficient resources to maintain statewide One-Stop Career Centers’ labor exchange activities, as required by section 6(b)(4) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(4). In accordance with this provision, $21,849,043 is set aside for administrative formula allocation. These funds are included in the total planning allotment. The funds that are set aside are distributed in two steps to states, which have lost in relative share of resources from the prior year. In Step 1, states which have a CLF below one million and are below the median CLF density are maintained at 100 percent of their relative share of prior year resources. The remainder is distributed in Step 2 to all other states losing in relative share from the prior year, but which do not meet the size and density criteria for Step 1. Postage costs incurred by states during the conduct of the WagnerPeyser funded labor exchange activities are billed directly to the Department of Labor by the U.S. Postal Service. The total final planning allotment reflects $18,000,000, or 2.1 percent of the total amount available, withheld from distribution to finance postage costs. Pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. 49f(b), ten percent of the total sums allotted to each state shall be reserved for use by the Governor to provide performance incentives for OneStop Career Centers and programs; services for groups with special needs; and for the extra costs of exemplary models for delivering job services. Differences between preliminary planning estimates and final planning allotments are caused by the use of calendar year 2004 data as opposed to the earlier data (12 months ending September 2004) used for preliminary planning estimates. Dated at Washington, DC, this 18th day of May, 2005. Emily Stover DeRocco, Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theda Kenney or Todd Owen, Directorate of Standards and Guidance, OSHA, 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 preclearnace 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–95) (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 Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The Standard on Forging Machines (29 CFR 1910.218) (the Standard) specifies several paperwork requirements. The following sections describe who uses the information collected under each requirement, as well as how they use it. The purpose these requirements is to reduce employees’ risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that forging machines used by them are in safe operating condition, and that they are able to clearly and properly identify manually operated valves and switches. Inspection of Forging Machines, Guards, and Point-of-Operation Protection Devices (paragraphs (a)(2)(i) and (a)(2)(ii)). Paragraph (a)(2)(i) requires employers to establish periodic and regular maintenance safety checks, and to develop and keep a certification record of each inspection. The certification record must include the date of inspection, the signature of the person who performed the inspection, and the serial number (or other identifier) of the forging machine inspected. Under paragraph (a)(2)(ii), PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 employers are to schedule regular and frequent inspections of guards and point-of-operation protection devices, and prepare a certification record of each inspection that contains the date of the inspection, the signature of the person who performed the inspection, and the serial number (or other identifier) of the equipment inspected. These inspection certification records provide assurance to employers, employees, and OSHA compliance officers that forging machines, guards, and point-of-operation protection devices have been inspected, assuring that they will operate properly and safely, thereby preventing impact injury and death to employees during forging operations. These records also provide the most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. Identification of Manually Controlled Valves and Switches (paragraphs (c), (h)(3), (i)(1) and (i)(2)). These paragraphs require proper and clear identification of manually operated valves and switches on presses, upsetters, boltheading equipment, and rivet-making machines, respectively. Marking valves and switches provide information to employees to ensure that they operate the forging machines correctly and safely. 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 technological information collection and transmission techniques. III. Proposed Actions OSHA proposes to extend the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) approval of the collection of information (paperwork) requirements necessitated by the Standard on Forging Machines (29 CFR 1910.218). In its extension request, OSHA also is proposing to reduce the total burden hours for these requirements from 244,868 hours to 187,264 hours. The Agency will include this summary in its request to OMB to E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with section 6(b)(5) of the 
Wagner-Peyser Act, 29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(5), the Employment and Training 
Administration is publishing final planning allotments for each state 
for PY 2005 (July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006). Preliminary planning 
estimates were published in Federal Register Volume 70, No. 57, page 
15515 on March 25, 2005. Funds are distributed in accordance with 
formula criteria established in section 6(a) and (b) of the Wagner-
Peyser Act. Civilian labor force (CLF) and unemployment data for 
Calendar Year 2004 are used in making the formula calculations.
    The total amount of funds currently available for distribution is 
$746,301,440. The Secretary of Labor shall set aside up to 3 percent of 
the total available funds to assure that each state will have 
sufficient resources to maintain statewide One-Stop Career Centers' 
labor exchange activities, as required by section 6(b)(4) of the Act, 
29 U.S.C. 49e(b)(4). In accordance with this provision, $21,849,043 is 
set aside for administrative formula allocation. These funds are 
included in the total planning allotment. The funds that are set aside 
are distributed in two steps to states, which have lost in relative 
share of resources from the prior year. In Step 1, states which have a 
CLF below one million and are below the median CLF density are 
maintained at 100 percent of their relative share of prior year 
resources. The remainder is distributed in Step 2 to all other states 
losing in relative share from the prior year, but which do not meet the 
size and density criteria for Step 1.
    Postage costs incurred by states during the conduct of the Wagner-
Peyser funded labor exchange activities are billed directly to the 
Department of Labor by the U.S. Postal Service. The total final 
planning allotment reflects $18,000,000, or 2.1 percent of the total 
amount available, withheld from distribution to finance postage costs. 
Pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. 49f(b), ten percent of 
the total sums allotted to each state shall be reserved for use by the 
Governor to provide performance incentives for One-Stop Career Centers 
and programs; services for groups with special needs; and for the extra 
costs of exemplary models for delivering job services.
    Differences between preliminary planning estimates and final 
planning allotments are caused by the use of calendar year 2004 data as 
opposed to the earlier data (12 months ending September 2004) used for 
preliminary planning estimates.

    Dated at Washington, DC, this 18th day of May, 2005.
