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 Labor-Management 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 medium-sized 
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 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.
