SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program information collection. 
The Congress has charged the Bureau of Labor Statistics with the 
responsibility of collecting and publishing monthly information on 
employment, average wages received, and the hours worked, by area and 
by industry. See 29 U.S.C. 2. The CES program provides current monthly 
statistics on employment, hours, and earnings, by industry. The 
statistics are fundamental inputs in economic decision processes at all 
levels of government, private enterprise, and organized labor. The BLS 
Authorizing Statute and Wagner-Peyser Act of 1933, as amended section 
15 authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1, 2, and 49l-
2.
    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 if the 
collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 
5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains approval for this 
information collection under Control Number 1220-0011.
    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 October 31, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL 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

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,

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
