ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The purpose of this notice is to announce the annual list of labor surplus areas for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. DATES: The annual list of labor surplus areas is effective October 1, 2016, for all states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Samuel Wright, Office of Workforce Investment, Employment and Training Administration, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room C–4514, Washington, DC 20210. Telephone: (202) 693–2870 (This is not a toll-free number) or email wright.samuel.e@ dol.gov. SUMMARY: The Department of Labor’s regulations implementing Executive Orders 12073 and 10582 are set forth at 20 CFR part 654, subpart A. These regulations require the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) to classify jurisdictions as labor surplus areas pursuant to the criteria specified in the regulations, and to publish annually a list of labor surplus areas. Pursuant to those regulations, ETA is hereby publishing the annual list of labor surplus areas. In addition, the regulations provide exceptional circumstance criteria for classifying labor surplus areas when catastrophic events, such as natural disasters, plant closings, and contract cancellations are expected to have a long-term impact on labor market area conditions, discounting temporary or seasonal factors. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Eligible Labor Surplus Areas A Labor Surplus Area (LSA) is a civil jurisdiction that has a civilian average annual unemployment rate during the previous two calendar years of 20 PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 percent or more above the average annual civilian unemployment rate for all states during the same 24-month reference period. ETA uses only official unemployment estimates provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in making these classifications. The average unemployment rate for all states includes data for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. LSA classification criteria stipulate a civil jurisdiction must have a ‘‘floor unemployment rate’’ of 6.0% or higher to be classified a LSA. Any civil jurisdiction that has a ‘‘ceiling unemployment rate’’ of 10% or higher is classified a LSA. Civil jurisdictions are defined as follows: 1. A city of at least 25,000 population on the basis of the most recently available estimates from the Bureau of the Census; or 2. A town or township in the States of Michigan, New Jersey, New York, or Pennsylvania of 25,000 or more population and which possess powers and functions similar to those of cities; or 3. All counties, except for the following: (a) Those counties which contain any type of civil jurisdictions defined in ‘‘1’’ or ‘‘2’’ above, (b) a county in the States of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island; or 4. A ‘‘balance of county’’ consisting of a county less any component cities and townships identified in ‘‘1’’ or ‘‘2’’ above; or 5. A county equivalent which is a town in the States of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, or a municipio in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Procedures for Classifying Labor Surplus Areas The Department of Labor (DOL) issues the LSA list on a fiscal year basis. The list becomes effective each October 1, and remains in effect through the following September 30. The reference period used in preparing the current list was January 2014 through December 2015. The national average unemployment rate (including Puerto Rico) during this period was rounded to 5.77 percent. Twenty percent higher than the national unemployment rate during this period is 6.93 percent. Therefore, areas included on the FY 2017 LSA list had a rounded unemployment rate for the reference period of 6.93 percent or higher. To ensure that all areas classified as labor surplus meet the requirements, when a city is part of a county and meets the unemployment qualifier as a LSA, that E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1
