Social Security Act (SSA) section 303(a)(6) requires, as a condition of a State receiving an administrative grant, that State law provide for making reports, in such form and containing such information, as the Secretary of Labor may from time to time require and compliance with such provisions as the Secretary of Labor may from time to time find necessary to assure the correctness and verification of such reports. Regulations 20 CFR 601.3, in part, implements this requirement by requiring submission of all relevant State materials (e.g., statutes, executive and administrative orders, legal opinions, rules, regulations, interpretations, court opinions, etc.). In addition, the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Civilian Employees program regulations at 20 CFR 609.1(d)(1) and the Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Service Members program regulations at 20 CFR 614.1(d)(1) require submission of certain documents to ensure States properly administer these programs. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because Form MA 8–7 now includes a check box for Agreements and Arrangements. An earlier version of the form included the field, but it had been removed in more recent clearances. Experience has shown having the field adds clarity. Social Security Act section 303(a)(6) authorizes this information collection. See 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6). 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 1205–0222. The current approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 31965 upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2016 (80 FR 58298). 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 1205–0222.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Unemployment Insurance Materials Transmittal

requires, as a condition of a State receiving an administrative grant, 
that State law provide for making reports, in such form and containing 
such information, as the Secretary of Labor may from time to time 
require and compliance with such provisions as the Secretary of Labor 
may from time to time find necessary to assure the correctness and 
verification of such reports. Regulations 20 CFR 601.3, in part, 
implements this requirement by requiring submission of all relevant 
State materials (e.g., statutes, executive and administrative orders, 
legal opinions, rules, regulations, interpretations, court opinions, 
etc.). In addition, the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Civilian 
Employees program regulations at 20 CFR 609.1(d)(1) and the 
Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Service Members program regulations at 
20 CFR 614.1(d)(1) require submission of certain documents to ensure 
States properly administer these programs. This information collection 
has been classified as a revision, because Form MA 8-7 now includes a 
check box for Agreements and Arrangements. An earlier version of the 
form included the field, but it had been removed in more recent 
clearances. Experience has shown having the field adds clarity. Social

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

under Control Number 1205-0222. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on May 31, 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 September 28, 2016 (80 FR 58298).

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
