For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on March 6, 2013 (78 FR 14592). 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 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 1219–0141. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on July 31, 2013.

Title 30 CFR 75.1321 outlines the procedures by which a permit may be issued for the firing of more than 20 boreholes and/or the use of nonpermissible blasting units in underground coal mines. In those instances in which there is a misfire of explosives, § 75.1327 requires that a qualified person post each accessible entrance to the affected area with a warning to prohibit entry. Section 77.1909–1 outlines the procedures by which a coal mine operator may apply for a permit to use nonpermissible explosives and/or shot-firing units in the blasting of rock while sinking shafts or slopes for underground coal mines.

    The ETA 207 Report, Nonmonetary Determination Activities, contains 
state data on the number and types of issues that are adjudicated when 
unemployment insurance (UI) claims are filed. It also has data on the

[[Page 40195]]

Unemployment Insurance (OUI) to determine workload counts for 
allocation of administrative funds, to analyze the ratio of 
disqualifications to determinations, and to examine and evaluate the 
program effect of nonmonetary activities.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

    Currently, the Employment and Training Administration is soliciting 
comments concerning the proposed extension collection of the ETA 207, 
Nonmonetary Determinations Activities Report. Comments are requested 
to:

necessary to assess performance of the nonmonetary determination 
function, 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 the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

    The continued collection of the information contained on the ETA 
207 report is necessary to enable the OUI to continue evaluating state 
performance in the nonmonetary determination area and to continue using
