Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Consumer Price Index Commodities and Services Survey. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services. Each month, BLS data collectors (economic assistants) visit or call thousands of retail stores, service establishments, rental units, and doctors’ offices, all over the United States to obtain information on the prices of the thousands of items used to track and measure price changes in the CPI. The collection of price data from retail establishments is essential for the timely and accurate calculation of the commodities and services component of the CPI. The CPI is then widely used as a measure of inflation, indicator of the effectiveness of government economic policy, deflator for other economic series, and as a means of adjusting dollar values. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the BLS will introduce a new geographic area sample for the CPI in January 2018. The new sample consists of 75 urban areas, while the current sample consists of 87 urban areas. The BLS Authorizing Statute authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1, 2. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:31 Jun 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 1220–0039. The current approval is scheduled to expire on July 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 March 3, 2017 (82 FR 12471). 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 1220–0039. 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 techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
