Abstract: In November 1993, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 (Brady Act), Pub. L. 103– 159, was signed into law and required Federal Licensees (FFL) to request background checks on individuals attempting to purchase a firearm. The permanent provisions of the Brady Act, which went into effect on November 30, 1998, required the United States Attorney General to establish the NICS whereas FFLs may contact by telephone or other electronic means in addition to telephone for information to be supplied within three business days on whether the receipt of a firearm by a prospective transferee would violate 18 U.S.C. 922(g) or 18 U.S.C. 922(n), or state law. There are additional authorized uses of the NICS found at 28 CFR 25.6(j). The FBI authorized the CJAs to initiate a NICS check to assist their transfer of firearms to private individuals as a change to 28.CFR 25.6(j) in 78 FR 5757, January 28, 2013. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is estimated the time burden associated with this collection is 3 minutes per transaction, depending on the individual circumstances. The total annual respondent entities taking advantage of this disposition process is 18,000 CJAs. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: It is estimated the burden associated with this collection is 3 PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 minutes per transaction depending on individual circumstances. If each of the 18,000 respondents conducted three dispositions with this authority per year at 3 minutes per check, then it is anticipated the business burden would be 2,700 hours per year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Claim Adjudication Process for Alleged Presence of 
Pneumoconiosis information collection. Regulations 20 CFR 718, subpart 
B establishes the relevant medical evidence development criteria 
regarding coal miners who apply for Black Lung Benefits Act (30 U.S.C. 
901 et seq.) payments. The Division of Coal Mine Workers' Compensation 
is required to schedule a series of four diagnostic tests to help 
establish eligibility for black lung benefits. Each diagnostic test has 
its own form setting forth the medical results: Roentgenographic 
Interpretation (Form CM-933), Roentgenographic Quality Rereading (Form 
CM-933b), Medical History and Examination for Coal Mine Workers' 
Pneumoconiosis (Form CM-988), Report of Arterial Blood Gas Study (CM-
1159), and Report of Ventilatory Study (Form CM-2907). In addition, 
regulations 20 CFR 718.102 sets forth standards for accompanying chest 
radiographs (x-rays). This information collection has been classified 
as a revision, because the OWCP has made several clarifications to the 
data collection Federal Mine Safety and Health Act section 508 
authorizes this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 957.
    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 1240-0023. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on May 31, 2017; 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. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on February 10, 2017 (82 FR 10411).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240-0023. 
The OMB 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
