SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 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 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the ‘‘Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) Program.’’ A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the individual 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 November 3, 2008. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, Division of Management Systems, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Room 4080, 2 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Washington, DC 20212, 202–691–7628. (This is not a toll free number.) FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, 202–691–7628. (See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The BLS has been charged by Congress (29 U.S.C. 1 and 2) with the responsibility of collecting and publishing monthly information on employment, the average wage received, and the hours worked by area and industry. The process for developing PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 residency-based employment and unemployment estimates is a cooperative Federal-State program which uses employment and unemployment inputs available in State Workforce Agencies. The labor force estimates developed and issued in this program are used for economic analysis and as a tool in the implementation of Federal economic policy in such areas as employment and economic development under the Workforce Investment Act and the Public Works and Economic Development Act, among others. The estimates also are used in economic analysis by public agencies and private industry, and for State and area funding allocations and eligibility determinations according to legal and administrative requirements. Implementation of current policy and legislative authorities could not be accomplished without collection of the data. The reports and manual covered by this request are integral parts of the LAUS program insofar as they insure and/or measure the timeliness, quality, consistency, and adherence to program directions of the LAUS estimates and related research. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for an extension of the information collection request that makes up the LAUS program. All aspects of the program are automated. All data are entered directly into BLS-provided systems. The BLS, as part of its responsibility to develop concepts and methods by which States prepare estimates under the LAUS program, developed a manual for use by the States. The manual explains the conceptual framework for the State and area estimates of employment and unemployment, specifies the procedures to be used, provides input information, and discusses the theoretical and empirical basis for each procedure. This manual is updated on a regular schedule. The LAUS program implemented a major program redesign in January 2005. The Redesign was announced in the Federal Register on November 8, 2004. III. Desired Focus of Comments The Bureau of Labor Statistics 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; E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1

Southprint, Inc., Reidsville Division, Reidsville, NC; Notice of 
Negative Determination on Reconsideration

    On July 31, 2008, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was published in the 
Federal Register on August 7, 2008 (73 FR 46037).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the finding that imports of screen-printing for apparel did 
not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm 
and no shift of production to a foreign source occurred.
    In the request for reconsideration the petitioner alleged that 
business at the subject firm declined because the subject firm's 
customers shifted screen-printing for apparel to foreign facilities. 
The petitioner provided an additional list of customers and alleged 
that these customers are importing screen-printing for apparel.
    On reconsideration the Department of Labor surveyed these declining 
customers regarding their purchases of products like or directly 
competitive with screen-printing for apparel during 2006, 2007 and 
January through March, 2008 over the corresponding 2007 period. The 
survey revealed that the customers did not import products like or 
directly competitive with screen-printing for apparel during the 
relevant period.
    The fact that the subject firm's customers are shifting their 
production abroad is not relevant to this investigation. According to 
section (a)(2)(B) of the Trade Act, in order to be eligible for TAA on 
the basis of a shift in production abroad, the shift in production must 
be implemented by the subject firm or its subdivision.
    In this case, the subject firm did not import screen-printing for 
apparel nor was there a shift in production from subject firm abroad 
during the relevant period.

Conclusion

    After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative 
determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance 
for workers and former workers of Southprint, Inc., Reidsville 
Division, Reidsville, North Carolina.
