Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, Department of Justice. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract. Primary: OVC Services to Victims of Human Trafficking Grant recipients (OVC Grantees) Abstract: The OVC Trafficking Information Management System (TIMS) Online is a Web-based database and reporting system, designed to simplify performance reporting required by the OVC Services to Victims of Human Trafficking Grant Initiative. Once approved, OVC will require OVC Grantees to use this electronic tool to submit grant performance data, including demographics about human trafficking victims. OVC intends to publish an annual analysis of these data to provide the crime victims’ field with stronger evidence for practices and programs. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: There are approximately 30–38 OVC Services to Victims of Human Trafficking Grantees per sixmonth reporting period. On average, it should take each grantee one hour to seven hours, depending on client case load per reporting period, to enter information into TIMS Online. There are two reporting periods per year. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: There is no public burden associated with the collection. This system only pertains to OVC grantees.

In addition, the regulations at 30 CFR 44.10 and 44.11 establish the requirements and procedures for filing petitions for modification. II. Petitions for Modification Docket Number: M–2011–031–C. Petitioner: Chief Mining, Inc., P.O. Box 446, Glen Daniel, West Virginia 25844. Mine: Jim’s Branch No. 2 Mine, MSHA Mine I.D. No. 46–08577, located in Wyoming County, West Virginia. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.1101– 1(b) (Deluge-type water spray system). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to eliminate the use of blowoff dust covers for the spray nozzles of a deluge-type water spray system. The petitioner states that: PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (1) Frequent inspections and functional testing of the system are conducted. (2) Dust covers are not necessary because the nozzles can be maintained in an unclogged condition through weekly use. (3) It is burdensome to recap the large number of covers on a weekly basis after each inspection and functional test. As an alternative to using the blow-off dust covers, the petitioner proposes to: (1) Conduct a weekly inspection and functional test of the complete delugetype water spray system; and (2) Record the result of the examination and functional test and record any malfunction or clogged nozzle detected in a book maintained on the surface. The record will be retained at the mine for one year. The petitioner asserts that the alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners at Jim’s Branch No. 2 Mine by the existing standard. Docket Number: M–2011–032–C. Petitioner: Frontier Coal Company, Inc., 100 Cranberry Creek Drive, Beckley, West Virginia 25801. Mine: Double Camp No. 1 Mine, MSHA I.D.
