Background The Military Construction Authorization Act, as amended by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010, prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring workers holding H–2B visas under the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b), unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), in consultation with the Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies that: (1) There is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, willing, qualified, and available to perform the work; and (2) that the employment of workers holding H–2B visas will not have an adverse effect on either the wages or the working conditions of workers in Guam. In order to allow the Governor to make this certification, the NDAA requires contractors to recruit workers in the U.S., including in Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, according to the terms of a recruitment plan developed and approved by the Secretary. This recruitment plan was published as a set of Contractor Recruitment Standards in the Federal Register on January 8, 2013 (78 FR PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 22743 1256) and is available at: https:// www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/ 01/08/2013-00114/guam-military-baserealignment-contractor-recruitmentstandards. Under the NDAA, no Guam base realignment construction project work may be performed by a person holding an H–2B visa under the Immigration and Nationality Act until the contractor complies with the Department’s Contractor Recruitment Standards and the Governor of Guam issues a certification of that compliance. II. Review Focus The Department is particularly interested in comments which: • 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 Type of Review: Extension without revisions. Title: Guam Military Base Realignment Contractor Recruitment Standards. OMB Number: 1205–0484. Affected Public: Private sector businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Total Annual Respondents: 5. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 110. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 330. Estimated Total Annual Other Costs Burden: 0. We will summarize and/or include in the request for OMB approval of the ICR, the comments received in response to this comment request; they will also become a matter of public record.
