Therefore, the Department determines that the group eligibility to apply for benefits under the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, has not been met. Further, the Department found that no new information was provided to contradict the original negative findings. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed at Washington, DC this 19th day of September 2008. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

This program ensures that information is in the desired format, has practical utility, reporting burden (time and cost) is minimized, collection instruments are understandable, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is correct. Currently, OSHA is soliciting comments concerning the extension of the information collection requirements contained in the series of regulations establishing requirements for the submission, initial approval, continuing approval, final approval, monitoring and evaluation of OSHA-approved State Plans: • 29 CFR Part 1902, State Plans for the Development and Enforcement of State Standards; • 29 CFR Part 1952, Approved State Plans for Enforcement of State Standards; • 29 CFR Part 1953, Changes to State Plans for the Development and Enforcement of State Standards; • 29 CFR Part 1954, Procedures for the Evaluation and Monitoring of Approved State Plans; • 29 CFR Part 1955, Procedures for Withdrawal of Approval of State Plans; and • 29 CFR Part 1956, State Plans for the Development and Enforcement of State Standards Applicable to State and Local Government Employees in States without Approved Private Employee Plans. Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act offers an opportunity to the States to assume responsibility for the development and enforcement of State standards through the mechanism of an OSHA-approved State Plan. Absent an approved plan, States are precluded from enforcing occupational safety and health standards in the private sector with respect to an issue that is addressed by OSHA. Once approved and operational, the State provides most occupational safety and health enforcement and compliance assistance in the State in lieu of Federal OSHA. States also must extend this jurisdiction to cover State and local government employees. In order to obtain and maintain State Plan approval, a State must submit various documents to OSHA describing its program structure and operation, including any modifications thereto as they occur, in accordance with the identified regulations. OSHA funds 50% of the costs required to be incurred by an approved State Plan with the State at PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 least matching and providing additional funding at its discretion. 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 participating States; for example, by using automated or other technological information collection and transmission techniques. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is proposing to extend the collection of information requirements associated with its State Plan regulations. In doing so, the Agency is proposing to increase the burden hours from 10,522 to 10,652 hours. The increase is a result of increasing the frequency and time for State Plans to respond to requests for summary information. The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend the approval of the information collection requirements related to its six State Plan regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    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 with an opportunity to comment on 
proposed and/or continuing collections of information 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, has practical utility, reporting burden (time and cost) is 
minimized, collection instruments are understandable, and OSHA's 
estimate of the information collection burden is correct. Currently, 
OSHA is soliciting comments concerning the extension of the information 
collection requirements contained in the series of regulations 
establishing requirements for the submission, initial approval, 
continuing approval, final approval, monitoring and evaluation of OSHA-
approved State Plans:
     29 CFR Part 1902, State Plans for the Development and 
Enforcement of State Standards;
     29 CFR Part 1952, Approved State Plans for Enforcement of 
State Standards;
     29 CFR Part 1953, Changes to State Plans for the 
Development and Enforcement of State Standards;
     29 CFR Part 1954, Procedures for the Evaluation and 
Monitoring of Approved State Plans;
     29 CFR Part 1955, Procedures for Withdrawal of Approval of 
State Plans; and
     29 CFR Part 1956, State Plans for the Development and 
Enforcement of State Standards Applicable to State and Local Government 
Employees in States without Approved Private Employee Plans.
    Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act offers an 
opportunity to the States to assume responsibility for the development 
and enforcement of State standards through the mechanism of an OSHA-
approved State Plan. Absent an approved plan, States are precluded from 
enforcing occupational safety and health standards in the private 
sector with respect to an issue that is addressed by OSHA. Once 
approved and operational, the State provides most occupational safety 
and health enforcement and compliance assistance in the State in lieu 
of Federal OSHA. States also must extend this jurisdiction to cover 
State and local government employees. In order to obtain and maintain 
State Plan approval, a State must submit various documents to OSHA 
describing its program structure and operation, including any 
modifications thereto as they occur, in accordance with the identified 
regulations. OSHA funds 50% of the costs required to be incurred by an 
approved State Plan with the State at least matching and providing 
additional funding at its discretion.

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 participating States; for 
example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is proposing to extend the collection of information 
requirements associated with its State Plan regulations. In doing so, 
the Agency is proposing to increase the burden hours from 10,522 to 
10,652 hours. The increase is a result of increasing the frequency and 
time for State Plans to respond to requests for summary information. 
The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this 
notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend 
the approval of the information collection requirements related to its 
six State Plan regulations.
