(44 U.S.C. Sec. Sec.  3501-3521) the Military Compensation and 
Retirement Modernization Commission (MCRMC) will submit to the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) the following emergency proposal for the 
collection of information under Section 3507(j)(1) of the PRA. An 
emergency clearance is being requested for the collection of 
information from military retirees. Comments are being sought on the 
proposed survey.

DATES: Consideration will be given to all comments received on or 
before January 15, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Send comments concerning the information collection to 
MCRMC's OMB desk officer at oira_submission@OMB.eop.gov.

Director, Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Military Compensation and Retirement 
Modernization Commission (MCRMC) was established by the National 
Defense Authorization Act FY 2013, Public Law 112-239, 126 Stat. 1787 
(2013), to conduct a review of the military compensation and retirement 
systems and to make recommendations to modernize those systems in a 
report to be transmitted to the President by May 1, 2014. Pursuant to 
the Act, the

[[Page 74169]]

Commission is required to examine all laws, policies and practices of 
the Federal Government that result in any direct payment of authorized 
or appropriated funds to current and former members (veteran and 
retired) of the uniformed services, including the reserve components of 
those services, as well as the spouses, family members, children, 
survivors, and other persons authorized to receive such payments as a 
result of their connection to the members of these uniformed services 
(Sec.  671(b)(1)(A)) and to seek written comment from the general 
public and interested parties, to hold public hearings and to examine 
such other matters as it considers appropriate (Sec.  671(b)(1)(C)).
    The Commission considers it essential to survey the recipients of 
the government funding that is the focus of the statute in order to 
write the report due May 1, 2014. The Commission has designed a survey 
that measures preferences for alternative levels and types of 
compensation across a broad cross-section of people either directly or 
indirectly benefiting from various forms of military compensation. In 
our review of existing surveys, we have determined that no available 
sources cover the demographic diversity of participants the Commission 
would like to cover using a preference-based approach. Because the 
statute requires the Commission to produce a report by May 1, 2014, the 
agency cannot comply with normal clearance procedures for authorizing a 
survey and it is requesting emergency processing.
    Respondents: Military Retirees.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 50,000.
    Estimated Number of Responses: 5,000.
    Frequency of Response: One time.
    Average Hours of Response: .5 hours.
    Total Estimated Burden: 2,500.

Associate Director, Administration and Operations.
