Download as PDF 47774 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 197 / Friday, October 13, 2017 / Notices preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95). I. Background: The Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq., 30 U.S.C. 936 and 941, and its implementing requlations, 20 CFR 725.533(e), authorizes the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC) to collect information regarding payments of compensation to coal miners and other beneficiaries. Once a miner or survivor is found eligible for benefits, the primary beneficiary is requested to report certain changes that may affect benefits. To ensure that there is a review and update of all claims paid from the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund, and from Social Security cases transferred to the Department of Labor under the Black Lung Consolidation of Administrative Responsibilities Act of 2002, and to help the beneficiary comply with the need to report certain changes, the CM–929 is sent to all appropriate primary beneficiaries. The CM–929 is printed by the DCMWC computer system with information specific to each beneficiary, such as name, address, number of dependents on record, state workers’ compensation information, and amount of current benefits. The beneficiary reviews the information and certifies that the information is current, or provides updated information. The form includes a warning about potential consequences of failure to report changes. The CM–929P is sent to all beneficiaries who have a representative payee. Compensation is paid to a representative payee on behalf of the beneficiary when the beneficiary is unable to manage his/her benefits due to incapability, incompetence or minority. The CM–929P is printed by the DCMWC computer system with information specific to each beneficiary, such as name, address, number of dependents on record, state workers’ compensation information, and amount of benefits. Additionally, representative payees are requested to provide information regarding the use of benefits received, where the beneficiary lives, and ensuring the needs of the beneficiary are being met. The representative payee reviews the information specific to the beneficiary, as well as provides their accounting of the funds received, and certifies that all information is current or provides updated information. The form includes a warning about potential consequences of failure to report changes. This information collection is currently approved for use through December 31, 2017. II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: * 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; Time to complete (minutes) Form Frequency of response (minutes) * 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 submissions of responses. III. Current Actions: The Department of Labor seeks the approval for the extension of this currently-approved information collection in order to verify the accuracy of information in the beneficiary’s claims file, to identify changes in the beneficiary’s status, to ensure that the amount of compensation being paid the beneficiary is accurate, and to verify that a representative payee is using benefits received to meet the beneficiary’s needs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    NASA is proposing construction of a Low Boom Flight Demonstration 
(LBFD) experimental aircraft, aka X-plane.
    This information collection will enable NASA to pre-test methods to

the pre-testing phase.
    The pre-test will be conducted by telephone interview. NASA wants 
to evaluate telephone surveys to assess prompt public response 
associated with experiencing low amplitude sonic booms over multiple, 
geographically dispersed communities. Responses will be voluntary.
    The new X-plane is designed to produce low amplitude sonic booms. 
Ultimately, flight testing of the X-plane is intended to (1) 
demonstrate and validate the technology necessary for civil supersonic 
flights that create low amplitude sonic booms, and (2) assess community 
response to the new, quieter, sonic booms.
