SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The information collection is required by sections 203(b)(2)(B)(i) 
and 212(a)(5)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 
1153(b)(2)(B)(i) and 1182(a)(5)(A) and 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii). The 
Secretary of Labor is required by the INA to certify that any alien 
seeking to enter the United States for the purpose of performing 
skilled or unskilled labor does not adversely affect wages and working 
conditions of U.S. workers similarly employed and that there are not 
sufficient U.S. workers able, willing, and qualified to perform such 
skilled or unskilled labor. Many foreign professional athletes must 
qualify as skilled labor to gain permanent admission into the United 
States. The Form ETA-750 is used to certify that the admission of an 
alien athlete meets these requirements. Section 212(a)(5)(A)(iii) of 
the INA deals specifically with professional athletes coming to the 
United States on a permanent basis as immigrants. Part B of Form ETA-
750 is also required by the Department of Homeland Security under 8 CFR 
204.5(k)(4)(ii) for aliens applying for the National Interest Waiver 
(NIW) of the job offer requirement, which allows aliens to self-
petition without an employer sponsor and does not require a labor 
certification.

II. Review Focus

    DOL 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 submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

    In order to meet its statutory responsibilities under the INA, DOL 
needs to extend an existing collection of information pertaining to 
employers seeking to import foreign labor. The form used to collect the 
information is used not only by DOL, but also by other Federal agencies 
to meet the requirements of the INA. DOL uses the information collected 
in its permanent certification program for the employment of alien 
professional athletes. The Department of Homeland Security U.S.
