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 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.

A copy of the proposed information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. Background The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) requires covered employers to secure the payment of compensation under the Act and its extensions by purchasing insurance from a carrier authorized by the Secretary of Labor to write Longshore Act Insurance, or by becoming authorized self-insured employers (33 U.S.C. 932 et seq). Each authorized insurance carrier (or carrier seeking authorization) is required to establish annually that its Longshore obligations are fully secured either through an applicable State guaranty (or analogous) fund, a deposit of security with the Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation (DLHWC), or a combination of both. Similarly, each authorized self-insurer (or employer seeking authorization) is required to fully secure its Longshore Act obligations by depositing security with DLHWC. These requirements are designed to assure the prompt and continued payment of compensation and other benefits by the responsible carrier or self-insurer to injured workers and their survivors. Forms LS–276, Application for Security Deposit Determination; LS–275–IC, Agreement and Undertaking (Insurance Carrier); and LS–275–SI, Agreement and Undertaking (Self-insured Employer) are used to cover the submission of information by insurance carriers and self-insured employers regarding their ability to meet their financial obligations under the Longshore Act and its extensions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background MSHA published a final rule revising the Agency’s requirements for mine PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 rescue teams for underground coal mines on February 8, 2008. The United Mine Workers of America challenged the final rule in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (Court). On February 10, 2009, the Court vacated several of the rule’s provisions. Consistent with the Court’s decision, MSHA revised its requirements for mine rescue teams for underground coal mines on June 17, 2009. The 2008 mine rescue team standard and 2009 revision added burden to existing information collection requirements and imposed two new information collection requirements. MSHA last submitted paperwork package 1219–0144 to OMB in May 2009, under the emergency review procedures in 5 CFR 1320.13. Section 4 of the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response (MINER) Act of 2006 required MSHA to promulgate standards for mine rescue teams for underground coal mines. The May 2009 paperwork package 1219– 0144 addressed only the increased burden associated with the revised and new standards and did not include the information collection burden for the existing mine rescue team standard not addressed by the MINER Act, which had been approved under paperwork package 1219–0078 for both coal and metal and nonmetal mines. This paperwork package 1219–0144 combines the additional burden from the revised and new standards for underground coal mine rescue teams with the existing information collection burden, which has been removed from paperwork package 1219–0078. (The metal and nonmetal mine rescue team paperwork package, OMB control number 1219–0078, has been extended to February 28, 2013, ICR reference number 200912–1219–003.) This package covers the following requirements for coal mines: • Each operator of a coal mine who provides rescue teams is required to send the District Manager a statement describing the mine’s method of compliance with the standard. • Small or remote mines may submit an application of an arrangement for alternative mine rescue capability to MSHA for approval. • A person trained in the use and care of the breathing apparatus is required to certify by signature and date that the required inspections and tests were done, take corrective action if indicated, and record any corrective action taken. • Each member of a mine rescue team must be examined annually by a physician who must certify that each E:\FR\FM\13APN1.SGM 13APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) requires 
covered employers to secure the payment of compensation under the Act 
and its extensions by purchasing insurance from a carrier authorized by 
the Secretary of Labor to write Longshore Act Insurance, or by becoming 
authorized self-insured employers (33 U.S.C. 932 et seq). Each 
authorized insurance carrier (or carrier seeking authorization) is 
required to establish annually that its Longshore obligations are fully 
secured either through an applicable State guaranty (or analogous) 
fund, a deposit of security with the Division of Longshore and Harbor 
Workers' Compensation (DLHWC), or a combination of both. Similarly, 
each authorized self-insurer (or employer seeking authorization) is 
required to fully secure its Longshore Act obligations by depositing 
security with DLHWC. These requirements are designed to assure the 
prompt and continued payment of compensation and other benefits by the 
responsible carrier or self-insurer to injured workers and their 
survivors. Forms LS-276, Application for Security Deposit 
Determination; LS-275-IC, Agreement and Undertaking (Insurance 
Carrier); and LS-275-SI, Agreement and Undertaking (Self-insured 
Employer) are used to cover the submission of information by insurance 
carriers and self-insured employers regarding their ability to meet 
their financial obligations under the Longshore Act and its extensions. 
This information collection is currently approved for use through 
September 30, 2010.

    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

[[Page 18888]]

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

this currently-approved information collection in order to carry out 
its responsibility to ensure that a carrier's LHWCA obligations are

amount set by OWCP. This procedure will ensure the prompt and continued 
payments of compensation and medical benefits to injured workers and 
help protect the Longshore special funds assets from consequences 
flowing from insurance carriers' insolvencies.
