SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The standard 30 CFR 77.1900 was enacted in 1971 and was amended in 
1982 and again in 1995. The standard requires underground coal mine 
operators to develop a prudent engineered design plan to develop a 
slope or shaft whenever an operator decides to open such a coal mine. 
The plan is required by the standard and is to be reviewed and approved 
by MSHA before the actual hazardous work begins.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

    Currently, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is 
soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the 
information collection related to Slope and Shaft Sinking Plans. MSHA 
is particularly interested in comments that:
     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;
     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.
    A copy of the proposed information collection request may be viewed 
on the Internet by accessing the MSHA Home Page (http://www.msha.gov) 
and selecting ``Rules and Regs'' then ``Paperwork Reduction Act 
Supporting Statements'', or by contacting the employee listed above in 
the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice for a hard 
copy.

III. Current Actions

    The 78 slope or shaft development plans that MSHA receives on an 
annual basis, are reviewed to ensure that the required work is 
performed in a safe manner, and it protects those miners performing the 
work. Prudent engineering design does evolve along with improved 
machinery to perform the work, but there has not been any revision to 
the requirements for such a plan. Currently, the Mine Safety and Health 
Administration (MSHA) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed 
extension of the information collection related to Slope and Shaft 
Sinking Plans.
