Background of This Rulemaking The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, 33 U.S.C. 901–50 (LHWCA or Act), establishes a federal workers’ compensation system for an employee’s disability or death arising in the course of covered maritime employment. 33 U.S.C. 903(a), 908, 909. This proposed rule would implement the Act’s provisions on maximum and minimum amounts of compensation payable. A. The Act’s Compensation Scheme Disability, which the Act defines as ‘‘incapacity because of injury to earn the wages which the employee was receiving at the time of injury,’’ 33 U.S.C. 902(10), ‘‘is in essence an PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 economic, not a medical concept.’’ Metro. Stevedores v. Rambo, 515 U.S. 291, 297 (1995). From its inception in 1927, the Act has provided that ‘‘the average weekly wage of the injured employee at the time of the injury’’ must be used as the basis for computing his or her compensation rate. 33 U.S.C. 910. Thus, ‘‘[a]n employee’s compensation depends on the severity of his disability and his preinjury pay.’’ Roberts v. SeaLand Services, Inc., 566 U.S. ll, 132 S.Ct. 1350, 1354 (2012). Several statutory sections have an impact on determining the amount of compensation payable. Section 10, ‘‘Determination of Pay,’’ 33 U.S.C. 910, is the starting point in the statutory scheme. It sets out rules for calculating the employee’s average weekly wage (AWW) as of the time of the employee’s disabling injury. This AWW serves as the basis for all future benefit calculations for that worker throughout the life of his or her claim. The second step is to determine what percentage of the employee’s AWW a claimant will receive in compensation. This is determined under section 8, ‘‘Compensation for Disability,’’ and section 9, ‘‘Compensation for Death,’’ 33 U.S.C. 908, 909. Compensation payable for disability varies based on the nature and extent of an employee’s disability. Section 8 establishes four basic categories of disability: Permanent total, temporary total, permanent partial, and temporary partial. 33 U.S.C. 908(a)–(c), (e). In general, an injury is ‘‘total’’ if the worker is unable to work after the injury and ‘‘partial’’ if the worker is able to work at a diminished wage. A disability is ‘‘temporary’’ if the employee’s medical condition is improving and becomes ‘‘permanent’’ when he or she reaches maximum medical improvement. See 33 U.S.C. 908(a)–(c), (e); see also Potomac Elec. Power Co. v. Director, OWCP, 449 U.S. 268 (1980). And section 9 provides compensation payable to the employees’ eligible survivors for injuries causing death. 30 U.S.C. 909. For all disability categories, the Act uses a ‘‘two-thirds’’ rule to compute compensation. Totally disabled employees—those who are unable to return to their original employment or earn wages in suitable alternative employment—receive two-thirds the AWW they were earning at the time of injury. 33 U.S.C. 908(a)–(b). Partially disabled employees—those who experience the loss or loss-of-use of body parts specified in the statute—are entitled to two-thirds of their date-ofinjury AWW for a specified number of weeks. 33 U.S.C. 908(c)(1)–(19). Other partially disabled employees—those E:\FR\FM\26AUP1.SGM 26AUP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission has requested comment on a 
release proposing revisions to the property disclosure requirements for 
mining registrants and related guidance, currently set forth in Item 
102 of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act of 1933 and the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and in Industry Guide 7. The proposed 
revisions would modernize the Commission's disclosure requirements and 
policies for mining properties by more closely aligning them with 
current industry and global regulatory practices and standards. In 
addition, the proposed revisions would rescind Industry Guide 7, amend 
section 102 of Regulation S-K, add new exhibit (96) to Item 601 of 
Regulation S-K, add new subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K, amend Form 1-A 
and amend Form 20-F.
    The Commission originally requested that comments on the release be 
received by August 26, 2016. The Commission has received requests for 
an extension of time for public comment on the proposal to, among other 
things, allow for a more complete assessment of the numerous provisions 
of the proposed rules, including a fuller consideration of their 
implications, and to improve the quality of responses.\1\

The Commission believes that providing the public additional time to 
consider thoroughly the matters addressed by the release and to submit 
comprehensive responses to the release would benefit the Commission in 
its consideration of final rules. Therefore, the Commission is 
extending the comment period for Release Nos. 33-10098 and 34-78086, 
``Modernization of Property Disclosures for Mining Registrants,'' until 
September 26, 2016.
