Investigations Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, 61656-61657 [2014-24273]

Download as PDF 61656 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 198 / Tuesday, October 14, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Representative Payee Report (Form CM– 623) and Representative Payee Report Short Form (Form CM–623S) are used to ensure that benefits paid to a representative payee are used for the beneficiary’s well-being. The Physician’s/Medical Officer’s Statement (Form CM–787) is used to determine the beneficiary’s capability to manage monthly black lung benefits. While not expected to affect respondent burden, this ICR has been classified as a revision because of minor clarifications that should help claimants better understand what information to provide on the forms. The Black Lung Benefits Act authorizes this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 921, 922. 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 1240–0020. The current approval is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2014; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2014 (79 FR 29219). 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 thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 Oct 10, 2014 Jkt 235001 appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240–0020. 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.
