SUMMARY: Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services. Each month, BLS data collectors visit or call thousands of retail stores, service establishments, rental units, and doctors’ offices all over the United States to obtain information on the prices of the thousands of items used to track and measure price changes in the emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:15 Sep 24, 2012 Jkt 226001 CPI. The collection of price data from rental units is essential for the timely and accurate calculation of the shelter component of the CPI. The CPI is then widely used as a measure of inflation, indicator of the effectiveness of government economic policy, deflator for other economic series and as a means of adjusting dollar values. 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 Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0163. The current approval is scheduled to expire on November 30, 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 June 18, 2012 (77 FR 36296). 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 order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1220– 0163. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59013 e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

State Journal Register, Camera and Plate Department, Springfield, 
IL; Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for 
Reconsideration

    By application dated August 24, 2012, a worker requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding 
workers' eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) 
applicable to workers and former workers of State Journal Register, 
Camera and Plate Department, Springfield, Illinois. The determination 
was issued on July 26, 2012. The Department's Notice of determination 
was published in the Federal Register on August 9, 2012 (77 FR 47674). 
The workers' firm is engaged in activities related to the production of 
a daily newspaper. The subject worker group performs image manipulation 
for publication.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the findings that a significant number or proportion of 
workers at State Journal Register, Camera and Plate Department, 
Springfield, Illinois has not been totally or partially separated, or 
threatened with such separation, and that the criteria of Section 
222(e) of the Trade Act, as amended, have not been met.
    The request for reconsideration states that the dislocated workers 
were part of the ``Pre-Press Imaging Department'' of State Journal 
Register, Springfield, Illinois.
    A careful review of the existing record has revealed that the 
petition was filed

[[Page 59014]]

on behalf of ``Camera/Plate-Prepress-Imaging, Ad Srvs. & Market'' 
workers at State Journal Register, Springfield, Illinois who were 
affected by the shift of ``advertising ad work'' to a foreign country.
    The Department will conduct further investigation to clarify the 
subject worker group and to determine if workers have met the 
eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 12th day of September 2012.
