Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Labor (DOL) is submitting the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) sponsored information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 Technical Release 91–1,’’ to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval for continued use in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). DATES: Submit comments on or before April 18, 2012. ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation; including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency of response, and estimated total burden may be obtained from the RegInfo.gov Web site, http://www.reginfo.gov/ public/do/PRAMain,on the day following publication of this notice or by contacting Michel Smyth by telephone at 202–693–4129 (this is not a toll-free number) or sending an email to DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. Submit comments about this request to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attn: OMB Desk Officer for the DOL–EBSA, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10235, Washington, DC 20503, Telephone: 202–395–6929/Fax: 202–395–6881 (these are not toll-free numbers), email: OIRA_submission@omb.eop.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Michel Smyth by telephone at 202–693–4129 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at DOL_PRA_ PUBLIC@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject information collection requirements arise from Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) section 101(e), which establishes notice requirements that must be satisfied before an employer may transfer excess assets from a defined benefit pension plan to a retiree health benefit account, as permitted under the conditions set forth in Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code) section 420. The section 101(e) notice requirements are two-fold. First, subsection (e)(1) requires plan administrators to provide advance emcdonald on DSK29S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:40 Mar 16, 2012 Jkt 226001 written notification of such transfers to participants and beneficiaries. Second, subsection (e)(2)(A) requires employers to provide advance written notification of such transfers to the Secretaries of Labor and the Treasury, the plan administrator, and each employee organization representing participants in the plan. Both notices must be given at least 60 days before the transfer date. The two subsections prescribe the information to be included in each type of notice and further give the Secretary of Labor the authority to prescribe how notice to participants and beneficiaries must be given and how any additional reporting requirements are deemed necessary. The DOL published ERISA Technical Release 91–1 on May 8, 1991, to provide guidance on how to satisfy the notice requirements prescribed by this section of the Act. The Technical Release made two changes in the statutory requirements for the second type of notice. First, it required the notice to include a filing date and the intended asset transfer date. The Release also simplified the statutory filing requirements by providing that filing with the DOL would be deemed sufficient notice to both the DOL and the Department of the Treasury, as required under the statute. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB Control Number 1210–0084. The current OMB approval is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2012; however, it should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on December 7, 2011 (76 FR 76439). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should reference OMB Control Number 1210– 0084. The OMB 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; • 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 • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

       TA-W No.           Subject firm                 Location                           Impact date

81,321................  PlumChoice......  Billerica, MA.                      ..................................
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be 
signed by at least three individuals of the petitioning worker group. 
Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the 
petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under 
Section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker 
group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed 
invalid.
