Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Cleanup Program for Accumulations of Coal and Float Coal Dusts, Loose Coal, and Other Combustibles ACTION: 54127 This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Cleanup Program for Accumulations of Coal and Float Coal Dusts, Loose Coal, and Other Combustibles information collection requirements codified in regulations 30 CFR 75.400–2 that requires a mine operator to establish and to maintain a program for the regular cleanup and removal of accumulations of coal and float coal dusts, loose coal, and other combustibles. A mine operator must have a written cleanup program that is maintained in the underground mine file at the appropriate MSHA District Office for each mine. This cleanup program is used as a tool to help abate significant or persistent problems by including cleanup program revisions to address hazards detected in the mine. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a) and U.S.C. 813(h). 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 1219–0151. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2016. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
