Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and (c) and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a), (c); 813(h). 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 1219–0065. 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 notice published in the Federal Register on July 17, 2015 (80 FR 42549). 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Short-Time Compensation (STC) Grants information 
collection. Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, 
Subtitle D, Short-Time Compensation Program, also known as the Layoff 
Prevention Act of 2012, concerns States that currently participate in, 
or wish to initiate a layoff aversion program known as STC or work-
sharing. The law requires applications, administrative processes, 
monitoring, and reporting of data between State Workforce Agencies 
(SWAs) and the ETA. The ETA has principal oversight responsibility for 
the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program that SWAs operate. The ETA has 
developed a data collection for the proper oversight of State STC 
programs to ensure compliance with the UI system funding and 
administration under the Layoff Prevention Act. This information 
collection has been classified as a revision, because information 
collected related to the temporary financing of STC payments by the 
Federal Government, applying for an STC grant(s), and applying to 
operate a temporary Federal STC program (for states without STC 
programs in state law) were removed. The information collection is no 
longer necessary for the ETA to carry out its authority.
    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 1205-0499. This information collection is 
scheduled to expire on February 29, 2016; 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 June 26, 2015.

the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205-0499. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is

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
