SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Notice of Issuance of Insurance Policy information collection. The Black Lung Benefits Act as amended requires that a responsible coal mine operator be insured and outlines the items each contract of insurance must contain. See 30 U.S.C. 933. The statute also enumerates civil penalties to which a responsible coal mine operator is subject, should these procedures not be followed. Regulations 20 CFR 726.208 through 726.213 require that each insurance carrier shall report to Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) each policy and endorsement issued, cancelled, or renewed with respect to responsible operators. The regulations state that this report will be made in such a manner and on such a form as the DCMWC may require. The regulations also require that, if a policy is issued or renewed for more than one operator, a separate report for each operator shall be submitted. The insured coal mining operations are conducted in States that report all workers’ compensation to the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI). The OWCP and NCCI have a Memorandum of Understanding in place that permits the NCCI to provide policy information directly to the OWCP via Secure File Transfer Protocol server. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because will discontinue use of Form CM–921 that a State previously has used to submit information directly to the DCMWC. 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 1240–0048. The current approval is scheduled to expire on July 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.

I. Program Description A. Overview of the Brookwood-Sago Mine Safety Grant Program Responding to several coal mine disasters, Congress enacted the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006 (MINER Act). When Congress passed the MINER Act, it expected that requirements for new and advanced technology, e.g., fireresistant lifelines and increased breathable air availability in escapeways, would increase safety in mines. The MINER Act also required that every underground coal mine have persons trained in emergency response. Congress emphasized its commitment to training for mine emergencies when it strengthened the requirements for the training of mine rescue teams. Recent events demonstrate that training is the key for proper and safe emergency response and that all miners working in underground mines should be trained in emergency response. Under Section 14 of the MINER Act, the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) is required to establish a competitive grant program called the ‘‘Brookwood-Sago Mine Safety Grants’’ (Brookwood-Sago grants). 30 U.S.C. 965. This program provides funding for education and training programs to better identify, avoid, and prevent unsafe working conditions in and around mines. This program will use grant funds to establish and implement education and training programs or to create training materials and programs. The MINER Act requires the Secretary to give priority to mine safety demonstrations and pilot projects with broad applicability. It also mandates that the Secretary emphasize programs and materials that target miners in smaller mines, including training mine operators and miners on new MSHA standards, high-risk activities, and other identified safety priorities. B. Education and Training Program Priorities MSHA priorities for the FY 2016 funding of the annual Brookwood-Sago grants will focus on training or training materials for mine emergency preparedness and mine emergency E:\FR\FM\29JYN1.SGM 29JYN1
