Finally, all three categories of uranium workers must have been diagnosed with a compensable disease. For all three categories of uranium workers (miners, millers, and ore transporters), the Act specifies the following six compensable diseases: Primary cancer of the lung, fibrosis of the lung, pulmonary fibrosis, cor pulmonale related to fibrosis of the lung, silicosis, and pneumoconiosis. In addition to those compensable diseases applicable to all three categories of uranium workers, the Act specifies the following two additional compensable diseases for claimants who were employed as millers and ore transporters (but not as miners): Primary renal cancer and chronic renal disease including nephritis and kidney tubal tissue injury. dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Statement of Policy 14:58 Oct 22, 2008 Dated: October 14, 2008. Gregory G. Katsas, Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division. [FR Doc. E8–25230 Filed 10–22–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4410–12–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Office of the Secretary Submission for OMB Review: Comment Request October 10, 2008. The issue has been raised whether claimants can combine periods of employment as a miner, miller, and ore transporter. In order to be eligible for compensation, the Act requires claimants to have been employed for one year as a miner, miller, or ore transporter. In some instances, a claimant may have worked in separate positions as a miner, miller, or ore transporter for less than one year, but the claimant’s total, cumulative period of employment in these positions exceeds one year. The question is whether the Act’s eligibility criteria may be satisfied by such a combination of periods of employment. The Department is publishing this Notice to articulate its policy that claimants can combine periods of employment as miners, millers, and ore transporters to meet the one-year requirement. For all three categories of uranium workers (mining, milling, and ore transporting), the Act specifies six common diseases: Primary cancer of the lung, fibrosis of the lung, pulmonary fibrosis, cor pulmonale related to fibrosis of the lung, silicosis, and pneumoconiosis. Therefore, in cases involving those six illnesses, the Act’s exposure criteria can be satisfied by combining periods of employment that include mining, milling, and ore transporting. For millers and ore transporters (but not miners), the Act specifies two additional compensable diseases: Primary renal cancer and chronic renal disease including nephritis and kidney tubal tissue injury. In cases involving those two illnesses, the Act’s exposure criteria can be satisfied by combining periods of VerDate Aug<31>2005 employment that include only milling and ore transporting. This Notice is intended to inform the public of the Department’s longstanding policy regarding the calculation of the referenced employment periods. In addition, the Department will continue to announce this policy at outreach events and in communications with claimants, counsel, and support groups. Jkt 217001 The Department of Labor (DOL) hereby announces the submission of the following public information collection requests (ICRs) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub.
