SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Report on Current Employment Statistics (CES) 
information collection. The Congress has charged the BLS with the 
responsibility of collecting and publishing monthly information on 
employment, average wages received, and the hours worked, by area and 
by industry. See 29 U.S.C. 2. The CES program provides current monthly 
statistics on employment, hours, and earnings, by industry. The 
statistics are fundamental inputs in economic decision processes at all 
levels of government, private enterprise, and organized labor. This 
information collection has been classified as a revision, because the 
agency has added additional foreign language versions of the forms. 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 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 1220-0011. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on November 30, 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 June 19, 2017 (82 FR 27874).
    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 1220-0011. 
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,
