The separation will provide greater flexibility in managing this episodic information collection without needing to revisit more permanent aspects of the ATUS. The Eating and Health Supplement module includes questions about peoples’ eating and drinking behaviors, food assistance participation, grocery and meal shopping, food preparation, and food sufficiency. The Supplement also includes questions on general health and physical exercise. Information collected in the Supplement will be published as a public use data set to facilitate research on numerous topics, such as the association between eating patterns, physical activity, and Body Mass Index; time-use patterns of food assistance program participants and low-income nonparticipants; and how time-use varies by health status. The Supplement surveys individuals aged 15 and up from a nationally representative sample. This proposed 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. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on July 29, 2013 (78 FR 45567). 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 Reference Number 201307–1220–005. 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the ETA to conduct quick turnaround surveys on Workforce Investment Act 
(WIA) related issues. Specifically, this ICR is to clear a generic 
framework to obtain expedited OMB approval for each ad hoc WIA quick 
turnaround survey that will focus on an emerging topic of pressing 
policy interest. Much of the information available to the ETA on key 
operational issues is impressionistic or anecdotal in nature, based on 
hearsay or unsystematic observations, and not sufficiently accurate as 
to national incidence or scope. Obtaining accurate nationwide 
information through long-term and in-depth evaluation studies often 
will not provide timely results. The ETA, thus, has an ongoing need for 
accurate and timely information that can be found only with systematic 
quick turnaround studies. Depending on the nature of the questions, the 
ETA would administer surveys at either the state or local workforce 
area level or some combination of both together. This ICR might entail 
surveys of State Workforce Agencies, local Workforce Boards, American 
Job Centers, Employment Service offices, and offices of other local-
area partners.
    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 1205-0436.
    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 November 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL also notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on August 8, 2013, (78 FR 
48464).
    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 1205-0436. 
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.
