Background Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) section 401 (29 U.S.C. 1841) requires, subject to certain exceptions, all Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs), Agricultural Employers (AGERs), and Agricultural Associations (AGASs) to ensure that any vehicle they use or cause to be used to transport or drive any migrant or seasonal agricultural worker conforms to safety and health standards prescribed by the Secretary of Labor under the MSPA and with other applicable Federal and State safety standards. These MSPA safety standards address the vehicle, driver, and insurance. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has created Forms WH–514, WH–514a, and WH–515, which allow FLC applicants to verify to the WHD that the vehicles used to transport migrant/seasonal agricultural workers meet the MSPA vehicle safety standards and that anyone who drives such workers meets the Act’s minimum physical requirements. The WHD uses the information in deciding whether to authorize the FLC/FLC Employee applicant to transport/drive any migrant/seasonal agricultural workers or to cause such transportation. Form WH– 514 is used to verify that any vehicle used or caused to be used to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) meets the Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards. When the adopted DOT rules do not apply, FLC applicants seeking authorization to transport any migrant/ seasonal agricultural workers use Form WH–514a to verify that the vehicles meet the DOL safety standards and upon the vehicle meeting the required safety standards, the form is completed. Form WH–515 is a doctor’s certificate used to document that a motor vehicle driver or operator meets the minimum DOT physical requirements that the DOL has adopted. This information collection is currently approved for use through July 31, 2007. II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; E:\FR\FM\10JAN1.SGM 10JAN1 1248 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 6 / Wednesday, January 10, 2007 / Notices • Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) 
section 401 (29 U.S.C. 1841) requires, subject to certain exceptions, 
all Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs), Agricultural Employers (AGERs), and 
Agricultural Associations (AGASs) to ensure that any vehicle they use 
or cause to be used to transport or drive any migrant or seasonal 
agricultural worker conforms to safety and health standards prescribed 
by the Secretary of Labor under the MSPA and with other applicable 
Federal and State safety standards. These MSPA safety standards address 
the vehicle, driver, and insurance. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) 
has created Forms WH-514, WH-514a, and WH-515, which allow FLC 
applicants to verify to the WHD that the vehicles used to transport 
migrant/seasonal agricultural workers meet the MSPA vehicle safety 
standards and that anyone who drives such workers meets the Act's 
minimum physical requirements. The WHD uses the information in deciding 
whether to authorize the FLC/FLC Employee applicant to transport/drive 
any migrant/seasonal agricultural workers or to cause such 
transportation. Form WH-514 is used to verify that any vehicle used or 
caused to be used to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural 
worker(s) meets the Department of Transportation (DOT) safety 
standards. When the adopted DOT rules do not apply, FLC applicants 
seeking authorization to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural 
workers use Form WH-514a to verify that the vehicles meet the DOL 
safety standards and upon the vehicle meeting the required safety 
standards, the form is completed. Form WH-515 is a doctor's certificate 
used to document that a motor vehicle driver or operator meets the 
minimum DOT physical requirements that the DOL has adopted. This 
information collection is currently approved for use through July 31, 
2007.
