This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. The Secretary of Labor is required by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to certify that any alien seeking to enter the United States for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor will not adversely affect wages and working conditions of U.S. workers similarly employed, and that there are not sufficient U.S. workers able, willing, and qualified to perform such skilled or unskilled labor. Many foreign professional athletes must qualify as skilled labor to gain permanent admission to the United States. Section 212(a)(5)(A)(iii) of the INA deals specifically with professional athletes coming to the United States on a permanent basis as immigrants. Part A of Form ETA–750 is used to collect information that, when appropriate, permits DOL to certify that the admission of a foreign professional athlete meets the requirements of Section 212(a)(5)(A) of the INA. Part B of Form ETA–750 provides detailed information about a foreign national’s education and work history, and is used by DOL to collect information about the professional athlete on whose behalf an application for permanent labor certification is filed. The Department of Homeland Security also uses Part B under 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii), for aliens without an employer sponsor who are applying for a National Interest Waiver (NIW) of the job offer requirement under INA Section 203(b)(2)(B)(i), which allows aliens to self-petition and, where appropriate, to enter without a labor certification.

This information collection is subject to the PRA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden,

[[Page 18930]]

conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general 
public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/
or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the 
OMB for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can 
be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial 
resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, 
and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed.
    The Secretary of Labor is required by the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (INA) to certify that any alien seeking to enter the 
United States for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor 
will not adversely affect wages and working conditions of U.S. workers 
similarly employed, and that there are not sufficient U.S. workers 
able, willing, and qualified to perform such skilled or unskilled 
labor. Many foreign professional athletes must qualify as skilled labor 
to gain permanent admission to the United States. Section 
212(a)(5)(A)(iii) of the INA deals specifically with professional 
athletes coming to the United States on a permanent basis as 
immigrants.
    Part A of Form ETA-750 is used to collect information that, when 
appropriate, permits DOL to certify that the admission of a foreign 
professional athlete meets the requirements of Section 212(a)(5)(A) of 
the INA. Part B of Form ETA-750 provides detailed information about a 
foreign national's education and work history, and is used by DOL to 
collect information about the professional athlete on whose behalf an 
application for permanent labor certification is filed. The Department 
of Homeland Security also uses Part B under 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii), for 
aliens without an employer sponsor who are applying for a National 
Interest Waiver (NIW) of the job offer requirement under INA Section 
203(b)(2)(B)(i), which allows aliens to self-petition and, where 
appropriate, to enter without a labor certification. Sections 
203(b)(2)(B)(i) and 212(a)(5)(A)) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1153(b)(2)(B)(i) 
and Sec.  1182(a)(5)(A)) and 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii) authorizes this 
information collection.
    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 the OMB under the PRA approves it and the 
information collection 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.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the 
contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to 
receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention ETA, OMB Control 
Number 1205-0015.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR, and posted on the Internet without redaction. The DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    The DOL is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
