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 1219–0083.

[[Page 12953]]

I. Background

    The administration of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended by the 
Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2015 (TAAEA 2015), is the 
responsibility of the Secretary of Labor. Through agreements (Governor-
Secretary Agreements) established with states, states serve as agents 
of the Department in making payments to workers who have lost their 
jobs as a result of foreign trade and are certified eligible for the 
TAA Program. Section 241 of the Trade Act provides that: ``the 
Secretary shall from time to time certify to the Secretary of the 
Treasury for payment to each cooperating state the sums necessary to 
enable such State as agents of the United States to make payments 
provided for by this chapter.''
    As such, states may request reserve funds before the Final 
Distribution to cover the costs of Training, Job Search Allowances and 
Relocation Allowances, Employment and Case Management Services and 
State Administration of these benefits. Reserve funds will be 
distributed to states in accordance with 20 CFR 618.920 on an as-needed 
basis in response to reserve fund requests to provide monies to those 
states that experience large, unexpected layoffs or otherwise have 
training needs that are not met by their initial allocation. These 
funds must be requested using the Form ETA-9117 (OMB No. 1205-0275).

II. Review Focus

     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 submissions of responses.
