FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Michel Smyth by telephone at 202–693–4129, TTY 202–693–8064, (these are not toll-free numbers) or by email at DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Pattern of Violations information collection. The Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), as amended, places the ultimate responsibility on mine operators for ensuring the safety and health of miners. The legislative history of the Mine Act emphasizes that Congress included the pattern of violations (POV) provision for mine operators who demonstrated a disregard for the safety and health of miners through a recurring pattern of significant and substantial violations. The MSHA was to use the POV provision in situations where other enforcement actions had been ineffective at bringing the mines into compliance with safety and health standards. Regulations 30 CFR 104.2(a)(8) provides that the MSHA will consider mitigating circumstances in determining whether to issue a POV Notice. Among the items the MSHA could consider is an approved corrective action program to reduce significant and substantial violations accompanied by positive results. Mine Act sections 101(a) and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a), 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 1219–0150. 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 February 29, 2016. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:18 Feb 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 September 23, 2015 (80 FR 57399). 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. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1219–0150. 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, 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 submission of responses.

This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESA) Program information collection. Social Security Act section 303(a)(6) authorizes the DOL to prescribe standard definitions, methods and procedures, and reporting requirements for the collection of information on benefit payment accuracy and the reemployment of unemployment insurance benefit recipients to ensure the verification of these data. See 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6). The DOL uses information collected on Forms ETA– 9128, ETA–9128X, ETA–9129, and ETA–9129X to evaluate State performance in terms of service delivery and to report on the RESAs, including the number of scheduled in-person reemployment and eligibility assessments, the number of individuals who failed to appear for scheduled assessments, actions taken as a result of individuals not appearing for an assessment (e.g., benefits termination), results of assessments (e.g., referral to reemployment services, found in compliance with program requirements), estimated savings resulting from cessation of benefits, and estimated savings as a result of accelerated reemployment. Information collected on Forms ETA–9128X and ETA–9129X is required by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, Public Law 112–96. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of proposed changes that would have the population of claimants who are most likely to exhaust their benefits be reported on Forms ETA–9128 and ETA– 9129 and that ex-servicemember claimants be reported on Forms ETA– 9128X and ETA–9126X. In addition, the DOL proposes to eliminate comparison group information on Form ETA–9129; only information about the individuals selected for treatment will be collected.

     Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment 
(RESA) Program information collection. Social Security Act section 
303(a)(6) authorizes the DOL to prescribe standard definitions, methods 
and procedures, and reporting requirements for the collection of 
information on benefit payment accuracy and the reemployment of 
unemployment insurance benefit recipients to ensure the verification of 
these data. See 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6). The DOL uses information collected 
on Forms ETA-9128, ETA-9128X, ETA-9129, and ETA-9129X to evaluate State 
performance in terms of service delivery and to report on the RESAs, 
including the number of scheduled in-person reemployment and 
eligibility assessments, the number of individuals who failed to appear 
for scheduled assessments, actions taken as a result of individuals not 
appearing for an assessment (e.g., benefits termination), results of 
assessments (e.g., referral to reemployment services, found in 
compliance with program requirements), estimated savings resulting from 
cessation of benefits, and estimated savings as a result of accelerated 
reemployment. Information collected on Forms ETA-9128X and ETA-9129X is 
required by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, 
Public Law 112-96. This information collection has been classified as a 
revision, because of proposed changes that would have the population of 
claimants who are most likely to exhaust their benefits be reported on 
Forms ETA-9128 and ETA-9129 and that ex-servicemember claimants be 
reported on Forms ETA-9128X and ETA-9126X. In addition, the DOL 
proposes to eliminate comparison group information on Form ETA-9129; 
only information about the individuals selected for treatment will be 
collected.
    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 1205-0456. The current approval 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 July 7, 2015 (80 FR 38748).
    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. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205-0456. 
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, 
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 submission of responses.
