A school official completes a Certification by School Official (Form CM–981) to verify whether a Black Lung beneficiary’s dependent between the ages of 18 to 23 years qualifies as a full-time student. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of questions added to Form CM–981 that provide clearer language on what information the school registrars need to provide, i.e. contact information and expected graduation date and because of formatting changes. Black Lung Benefits Act section 426 authorizes this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 936. 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 1240–0031. The current approval is scheduled to expire on July PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 45543 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.
