Proposed Revision of the Approval of Information Collection Requirements, 70616-70617 [E7-24041]

Download as PDF 70616 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 238 / Wednesday, December 12, 2007 / Notices Federal Blvd. in Riverton. The Riverton Fire Department is a volunteer department, which runs two local fire stations in the city of Riverton. Fortyseven (47) volunteer fire fighters are available 24 hours a day to provide fire protection and emergency medical services to city residents and businesses. The proposed project will not have a significant adverse sociological affect on the surrounding community. Similarly, the proposed project will not have a significant adverse affect on demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the area. The alternatives considered in the preparation of this FONSI were as follows: (1) No Action; and (2) Continue Project as Proposed. The No Action alternative was not selected. The U.S. Department of Labor’s goal of improving the Job Corps Program by improving the learning environment at Job Corps Training Centers would not be met under this alternative. Due to the suitability of the proposed site for establishment of a new Job Corps Training Center, and the absence of any identified significant adverse environmental impacts from locating a Job Corps Training Center on the subject property, the ‘‘Continue Project as Proposed’’ alternative was selected. Based on the information gathered during the preparation of the EA, no environmental liabilities, current or historical, were found to exist on the proposed Job Corps Training Center Site. The construction of the Job Corps Training Center at 4000 Airport Road in Riverton, Wyoming will not create any significant adverse impacts on the environment. Dated: December 7, 2007. Esther R. Johnson, National Director of Job Corps. [FR Doc.

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:54 Dec 11, 2007 Jkt 214001 information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment Standards Administration is soliciting comments concerning its proposal to extend OMB approval of the information collection: Report of Changes that May Affect Your Black Lung Benefits (CM–929 and CM–929P). A copy of the proposed information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the ADDRESSES section of this Notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the ADDRESSES section below on or before February 11, 2008. ADDRESSES: Mr. Steven Andoseh, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Room S–3201, Washington, DC 20210, telephone (202) 693–0373, fax (202) 693–1451, E-mail andoseh.steven@dol.gov. Please use only one method of transmission for comments (mail, fax, or E-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background: The Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended, 30 U.S.C. 936, 30 U.S.C. 941 and 20 CFR 725.533(e) authorizes the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) to pay compensation to coal miner beneficiaries. Once a miner or survivor is found eligible for benefits, the primary beneficiary is requested to report certain changes that may affect benefits. To ensure that there is a review and update of all claims paid from the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund, and from Social Security cases transferred to the Department of Labor under the Black Lung Consolidation of Administrative Responsibilities Act of 2002, and to help the beneficiary comply with the need to report certain changes, the CM–929 is sent to all appropriate primary beneficiaries. The CM–929 is printed by the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) computer system with information specific to each beneficiary, such as name, address, number of dependents on record, state workers’ compensation information, and amount of current benefits. The beneficiary reviews the information and certifies that the information is current, or provides updated information. The form includes a warning about potential PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consequences of failure to report changes. DCMWC uses Information Collection OMB 1215–0173, Forms CM– 623 and CM–623S, to monitor a representative payee’s use of funds paid on a beneficiary’s behalf. This is an annual reporting requirement and, while the information collected on OMB 1215–0084 and 1215–0173 is different, the same payees complete both forms, and the same DCMWC claims examiner reviews them. Therefore, DCMWC proposes to incorporate the CM–929 into the CM–623 and CM–623S in those cases that appropriately are now sent both forms. This new, composite form is entitled CM–929P, and will allow respondents to verify information to DCMWC once annually instead of twice, as is now required. This information collection is currently approved for use through June 30, 2008. 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; * 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. III. Current Actions: The Department of Labor seeks approval for the revision of this currently approved information collection in order to verify the accuracy of information in the beneficiary’s claims file, to identify changes in the beneficiary’s status, and to ensure that the amount of compensation being paid the beneficiary is accurate.

Please use only one method of transmission for comments (mail, fax, or e-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background: The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) at 29 U.S.C. 1823(b)(1) and its regulations at 29 CFR 500.135(b) provide that any person who owns or controls a facility or real property to be used for housing migrant agricultural workers cannot permit any such worker to occupy the housing unless a copy of a certificate of occupancy from the state, local, or federal agency that conducted the housing safety and health inspection is posted at the site of the facility or real property. Form WH–520 is both an information gathering form and the certificate of occupancy that the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Employment Standards Administration (ESA) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issues when the WHD is the agency conducting the safety and health inspection. This information collection is currently approved for use through June 30, 2008. II.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance

with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing 
collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction

ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, 
reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, 
collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of 
collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. 
Currently, the Employment Standards Administration is soliciting 
comments concerning its proposal to extend OMB approval of the 
information collection: Report of Changes that May Affect Your Black 
Lung Benefits (CM-929 and CM-929P). A copy of the proposed information 
collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed

    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;
    * 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.
    III. Current Actions: The Department of Labor seeks approval for 
the revision of this currently approved information collection in order
