SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Division of Coal Mine Workers' Compensation administers the 
Black Lung Benefits Act (30 U.S.C. 901 et seq.) which provides benefits 
to coal miners totally disabled due to pneumoniosis, and their 
surviving dependents. When the Division of Coal Mine Workers' 
Compensation (DCMWC) makes a preliminary analysis of a claimant's 
eligibility for benefits, and if a coal mine operator has been 
identified as potentially liable for payment of those benefits, the 
responsible operator is notified of the preliminary analysis. 
Regulations require that a coal mine operator be identified and 
notified of potential liability as early in the adjudication process as 
possible. Regulatory authority is found in 20 CFR 725.410 for the CM-
2970 and 20 CFR 725.408 for the CM-2970a. This information collection 
is currently approved for use through January 31, 2014.

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the
