Background

    On December 31, 2015, USCIS published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register at 80 FR 81900 proposing to 
amend its regulations related to certain employment-based immigrant and 
nonimmigrant visa programs. The NPRM allowed for a 60-day public 
comment period on proposed amendments and 27,979 commenters responded. 
As part of the proposed regulatory amendments, USCIS proposed several 
revisions to Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker. USCIS 
invited the public to submit comments regarding proposed revisions to 
Form I-129 as part the NPRM's 60-day public comment period in 
accordance to 5 CFR 1320.11. USCIS is currently reviewing those public 
comments in consideration of how to address and/or revise its proposed 
amendments.
    Under 5 CFR 1320.5(a), USCIS is required to evaluate comments 
received under Sec.  1320.11. In addition, 5 CFR 1320.5(b) requires 
USCIS to ensure that Form I-129 displays a currently valid OMB control 
number. As USCIS continues its careful review and evaluation of the 
public comments received from 27,979 commenters, USCIS must ensure that 
Form I-129 continues to display a currently valid OMB control number. 
Currently, Form I-129 is set to expire on October 31, 2016. To ensure 
Form I-129 retains a valid OMB control number during review and 
evaluation of the public comments received from 27,979 commenters, 
USCIS must implement an Extension, Without Change, of a Currently 
Approved Collection.

Overview of This Information Collection

    (1) Type of Information Collection: Extension, Without Change, of a 
Currently Approved Collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
DHS sponsoring the collection: I-129; USCIS.

for-profit institutions. This form is used by an employer to petition 
for aliens to come to the U.S. temporarily to perform services, labor, 
and training or to request extensions of stay or changes in 
nonimmigrant status for nonimmigrant workers.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: The estimated 
total number of respondents for the information collection Form I-129
