SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of May 20, 2015 (80 FR 29096), the Department sought public comments on the proposal to amend Labor Organization and Auxiliary Reports information collections approved under OMB Control Number 1245–0003, specifically the Form LM–3 and LM–4 instructions, to require mandatory electronic filing of these reports, as well as modify the Form LM– 2 hardship exemption process to correspond with that proposed for the Form LM–3 and LM–4 reports, which would only permit temporary hardship exemption submissions, not continuing. As stated in the notice, the Department believes that reasonable changes must be made to the means by which the forms required under the LaborManagement Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) Title II are filed. The most efficient way to provide meaningful access to this information by interested members of the public is to require that the reports filed by small and mediumsized labor organizations be filed in electronic form. This change will benefit the filers, union members, and the public, as well as the Department. Interested persons were invited to submit comments on or before July 20, 2015, 60 days after the publication of the original notice. A public commenter has requested a 30-day extension of time to submit comments. In response to these requests, the Department has decided to extend the comment period for an additional 30 days. Comments on DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the proposed information collection must be received on or before August 19, 2015. An extension of this duration is appropriate, because it will afford parties a meaningful opportunity to submit comments on the proposal without unduly delaying final action on the proposed regulation.

Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104– 13 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), and as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is inviting the general public or other Federal agencies to comment on this SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:30 Jul 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 NSF provides nearly 20 percent of federal funding for basic research to academic institutions.1 The Office of Legislative and Public Affairs (OLPA) communicates information about the activities, programs, research results and policies of NSF. OLPA employs a wide variety of tools and techniques to engage the general public and selected audiences including Congress, the news media, state and local governments, other Federal agencies, and the research and education communities. To these 1 National Science Foundation. (2012). NSF at a glance. Retrieved from http://www.nsf.gov/about/ glance.jsp. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42843 ends, OLPA provides support for innovative new initiatives designed to increase public engagement and scientific progress. An important aspect of scientific progress is the education of future scientists. Improvements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula, particularly changes that engage students in the process of research and discovery, have become a focal point for attracting more students into science. Undergraduate research is a significant strategy for improving undergraduate STEM education. Community colleges prepare technicians who will become an integral part of research efforts and students who will continue their education at four-year institutions. Further, they play a significant role in the preparation of underrepresented groups in science. Community colleges have long recognized the importance of mentoring students and have a history of success in educating underrepresented students for successful careers in STEM. Thus, community colleges play an important role in workforce development in their states and local communities. Industry frequently looks to community colleges to provide an educated and technologically up-to-date workforce. The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) thrust of incorporating research into the traditional teaching mission of the community college is a relatively new expansion of its mission. This challenge furthers NSF’s mission by enabling students to discover and demonstrate their capacity to use science to make a difference in the world, and to transfer knowledge into action. The Office of Legislative and Public Affairs (OLPA) requests of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) an approval for an information collection intended to monitor outputs, short-term, intermediate and long term outcomes of OLPA’s new Community College Innovation Challenge. The survey questionnaire, individually tailored to measure outputs and outcomes for this initiative, will provide essential information for program monitoring purposes. Data collected by this collection will be used for program planning, management, and evaluation. A summary of monitoring data can be used to respond to queries from Congress, the public, NSF’s external merit reviewers who serve as advisors, including Committees of Visitors (COVs), and NSF’s Office of the Inspector General. These data are needed for effective administration, program and project monitoring, evaluation, and for measuring E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1
