ACTION: Notice of Public Meeting. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: On September 28, 2012, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), together with the European Commission’s Enterprise and Trade Directorates-General, published a joint request for comments on ‘‘Promoting US EC Regulatory Compatibility’’ (see http://www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=USTR-2012-00280001). The notice was part of a joint effort by the United States and the European Union (EU) to obtain input from the public on how to promote greater transatlantic regulatory compatibility generally as well as in specific economic sectors. See also http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/ 09/07/eliminating-red-tape-boost-tradeeconomic-growth. On April 10th and 11th, OMB and the European Commission will hold a public meeting of the U.S.-EU High Level Regulatory Cooperation Forum (the ‘‘Forum’’) in Washington, DC, to provide interested persons with an opportunity to provide an oral statement. DATES: Public meeting: April 10, 2013, starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m., and April 11, 2013, starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending by 12:00 p.m. ADDRESSES: Public Meeting: As with previous Forum meetings, the public sessions will be hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at 1615 H Street NW., Washington, DC 20062.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:43 Mar 06, 2013 Jkt 229001 Oral Presentations: Any persons wishing to present an oral statement at the public meeting should notify OMB in writing via InternationalOIRA@omb.eop.gov no later than March 20, 2013, and provide, in advance or at the meeting, written copies of their presentations. When considering requests to present an oral statement, given the limited amount of time available for the meeting, and to take advantage of the work already done by members of the public, preference will be given to those who submitted comments in response to the September 28th notice. Those persons who have been selected to present at the public meeting will be informed no later than April 5, 2013. Instructions: OMB invites those persons who are selected to present oral statements at the public meeting to email or fax such statements, as well as any supporting information, to: • Email: InternationalOIRA@omb.eop.gov • Fax: 1–202–395–2410. Please note that this Forum meeting is an initial step in a much longer process of public engagement to identify possible areas of transatlantic regulatory cooperation in the future. Time constraints may prevent some stakeholders from making presentations on April 10th or 11th, 2013. However, there will be future opportunities to submit suggestions and ideas, and the stakeholder session agenda will in no way prejudge the specific elements of a future transatlantic regulatory cooperation agenda.

Background: Transatlantic trade and investment among and between the United States and the EU represent the largest economic relationship in the world, accounting for half of global economic output and nearly one trillion dollars in goods and services trade, as well as supporting millions of jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. The United PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 States and the EU are committed to identifying new ways to strengthen this vibrant economic partnership by reducing unnecessary regulatory differences and cutting red tape, while respecting each other’s right to protect our environment and safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens. By promoting these goals, we will help businesses to grow, create jobs, and succeed in an increasingly competitive global market. Enhanced cooperation will also help the United States and the EU to achieve their respective domestic regulatory objectives in a more effective and efficient manner. In recent years, the Forum, and the Transatlantic Economic Council (TEC) have sought to increase cooperation on future regulations affecting new and innovative growth markets and technologies. We seek to continue to make progress through the Forum and the TEC with the help of additional input from the public. Purpose of Public Meeting: The April 10–12, 2013 meeting of the Forum is intended to provide an additional opportunity for interested parties to help the United States and EU define our priorities and explore next steps. The public input will help us to identify both immediate and longer-term goals, as well as potential mechanisms to accomplish them.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Director, Office of Administration, invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before May 3, 2013. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (U.S.C. chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Director, Office of Administration, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Record keeping burden. OMB invites public comment. Currently, the National Mediation Board is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute and is interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14841 agency; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the agency enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the agency minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Dated: March 4, 2013. June D. W. King, Director, Office of Administration, National Mediation Board. Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute Type of Review: Extension. Title: Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute. OMB Number: 3140–0001. Frequency: On occasion. Affected Public: Carrier and Union Officials, and employees of railroads and airlines. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden Responses: 68 annually. Burden Hours: 17.00. 1. Abstract: When a dispute arises among a carrier’s employees as to who will be their bargaining representative, the National Mediation Board (NMB) is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and to certify such representative. The NMB’s duties do not arise until its services have been invoked by a party to the dispute. The Railway Labor Act is silent as to how the invocation of a representation dispute is to be accomplished and the NMB has not promulgated regulations requiring any specific vehicle. Nonetheless, 29 CFR 1203.2, provides that applications for the services of the NMB under Section 2, Ninth, to investigate representation disputes may be made on printed forms secured from the NMB’s Office of Legal Affairs or on the Internet at http:// www.nmb.gov/representation/ rapply.html. The application requires the following information: the name of the carrier involved; the name or description of the craft or class involved; the name of the petitioning organization or individual; the name of the organization currently representing the employees, if any; the names of any other organizations or representatives involved in the dispute; and the estimated number of employees in the craft or class involved. This basic information is essential in providing the NMB with the details of the dispute so that it can determine what resources E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
