SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks PRA authorization for the ETA to conduct the Employer Survey of ShortTime Compensation (STC). The STC Program provides an opportunity for employers to reduce layoffs by temporarily reducing work hours of some employees. STC provides prorated unemployment insurance benefits for workers whose hours of work have been temporarily reduced. Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 section 2164 requires the Secretary of Labor to survey employers in all States to determine employers’ level of interest in participating in the STC Program. This proposed information collection activity will help satisfy this requirement. More specifically, the study this survey supports will examine employers’ experiences, awareness, and perspectives of the STC Program in four states that have an active STC program. Employers who have used the STC program and employers who have not used the program will be surveyed. The study will focus on the following four research areas: (1) Characteristics of employers participating in the STC Program; (2) extent of employer participation in the STC Program; (3) employers’ awareness, experiences, and views of the STC Program; and (4) employers’ opinion about workers’ view of STC. 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 August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48199). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:04 Nov 25, 2013 Jkt 232001 section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB ICR Reference Number 201310–1205–01. 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.

BILLING CODE 4510–43–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–82,442] Deluxe Laboratories, Inc., a Division of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, Inc. Hollywood, California; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration On July 23, 2013, the Department of Labor (Department) issued a Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to workers and former workers of Deluxe Laboratories, Inc., a division of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, Inc., Hollywood, California (hereafter referred to as either ‘‘Deluxe Laboratories, Inc.’’ or ‘‘subject firm’’). The subject firm is engaged in activities related to the production of release and trailer film prints. The worker group does not include leased workers. Workers of the subject firm were previously eligible to apply for Trade Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 Adjustment Assistance (TAA) under TA–W–74,636 (certification expired on October 14, 2012). Based on a careful review of previously-submitted information and additional information obtained during the reconsideration investigation, the Department determines that the petitioning worker group has met the eligibility criteria set forth in the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. Section 222(b)(1) has been met because a significant number or proportion of the workers at Deluxe Laboratories, Inc. have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated. Section 222(b)(2) has been met because workers of Deluxe Laboratories, Inc. is a Downstream Producer to a firm (or subdivision, whichever is applicable) that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a), and such production is related to the actual finished article or service that was the basis for such certification. Section 222(b)(3)(B) has been met because the loss of business by Deluxe Laboratories, Inc. with the aforementioned firm contributed importantly to worker separations at the subject firm. Conclusion [FR Doc. 2013–28309 Filed 11–25–13; 8:45 am] PO 00000 70579 After careful review of previouslysubmitted facts and the additional facts obtained during the reconsideration investigation, I determine that workers of Deluxe Laboratories, Inc., a division of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, Inc., Hollywood, California, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 222(b) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(b). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I make the following certification: ‘‘All workers of Deluxe Laboratories, Inc., a division of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, Inc., Hollywood, California, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after October 15, 2012, through two years from the date of this certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on date of certification through two years from the date of certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.’’ Signed in Washington, DC, this 8th day of November, 2013 Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

section 103(h), 30 U.S.C. 813, authorizes the MSHA to collect 
information necessary to carry out the Agency's duty in protecting the 
safety and health of miners. Underground mines usually present harsh 
and hostile working environments. Pursuant to the statutory authority, 
the MSHA has issued regulations under which a mine operator is required

plan must be updated at least annually. Upon written request of the 
MSHA District Manager, the plan or revisions must be submitted to the 
MSHA for review and comment. In addition, the main ventilation fans for 
an underground mine must be maintained according to either 
manufacturers' recommendations or a written periodic schedule. Upon 
request of an authorized representative of the Secretary of Labor, this 
fan maintenance schedule must be made available for review. The records 
help ensure compliance with the standard and may serve as a warning

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 1219-0016.
    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 January 31, 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
