SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR relates to information collections 
established by the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984 (DRA), which created 
an Income and Eligibility Verification System

[[Page 50449]]

(IEVS) for the exchange of information among State agencies 
administering specific programs, and subsequent regulations. Programs 
covered by the IEVS include Temporary Assistance for Needy Families; 
Medicaid; Food Stamps; Supplemental Security Income; Unemployment 
Compensation; and any State program approved under Social Security Act 
(SSA) titles I, X, XIV, or XVI. Under the DRA, participating programs 
must exchange information to the extent that it is useful and 
productive in verifying eligibility and benefit amounts that assist the 
child support program and the Secretary of Health and Human Services in 
verifying eligibility and benefit amounts under SSA titles II and XVI. 
On September 27, 2006, the ETA issued a final rule regarding the 
Confidentiality and Disclosure of State Unemployment Compensation 
Information. See 71 FR 56830. This rule supports and expands upon the 
requirements of the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984 and subsequent 
regulatory changes. States are required to use data sharing agreements 
when making disclosures, to provide some assurance that recipients of 
disclosed information follow safeguards protecting confidentiality; to 
provide an enforcement mechanism against any recipients that breach 
those safeguards; and to show that they have complied with the rule. 
State Workforce agencies are required to provide notice to both 
employers and claimants about the uses of information they provide the 
IEVS. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the 
related notice published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2013 (78 
FR 16298).
    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 1205-0238.
    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 September 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
    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 1205-0238. 
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.
