This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Administrative Hearing Procedures information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 2571.3. Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) section 521 provides that the Secretary of Labor may issue ex parte cease and desist orders when it appears to the Secretary that the alleged conduct of a MEWA under ERISA section 3(40) is fraudulent or creates an immediate danger to the public safety or welfare or is causing or can be reasonably expected to cause significant, imminent, and irreparable public injury. See 29 U.S.C. 1151, 2002(40). ERISA section 521(b) provides that a person who is adversely affected by the issuance of a cease and desist order may request an administrative hearing regarding the order. See 29 U.S.C. 1151(b). The regulatory provision that is the subject of this ICR describes the procedures before an ALJ when a person seeks an administrative hearing for review of such an order. 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 1210–0148. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:22 Mar 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 11595 without any change to existing requirements.
