SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, Subtitle D, ShortTime Compensation Program, also known as the Layoff Prevention Act of 2012, concerns States that currently participate in, or wish to initiate a new program in, a layoff aversion program known as short time compensation (STC) or worksharing. The law requires applications, new administrative processes, monitoring, and reporting of data between State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) and the ETA. The ETA has principal oversight responsibility for the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program that SWAs operate. The ETA has developed data collections for the proper oversight of State STC programs, because of the many changes to the funding and administration of the UI system introduced in the Layoff Prevention Act. 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 1205–0499. The current approval is scheduled to expire on December 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 August 13, 2012 (77 FR 48175). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75193 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 1205– 0499. 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.

seq., and the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation 
Program Act of 2000, 42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq. All three of these statutes 
require the OWCP to pay for covered medical treatment provided to 
beneficiaries; this medical treatment can include medicinal drugs 
dispensed by pharmacies. In order to determine whether amounts billed 
for drugs are appropriate, the OWCP must receive the required data 
elements--including the name of the patient/beneficiary, the National 
Drug Code number of each drug prescribed, the quantity provided, the 
prescription number and the date the prescription was filled. The 
regulations implementing these statutes require the collection of 
information needed to enable the OWCP to determine whether bills for 
drugs submitted directly by pharmacies or as reimbursement requests 
submitted by claimants should be paid. See 20 CFR 10.801, 30.701,

other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
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 1240-0050. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on December 31, 2012; however, it should be noted that existing

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
