Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 63 / Monday, April 2, 2018 / Notices of Nevada to dispense controlled substances.7 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Discussion Pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3), the Attorney General is authorized to suspend or revoke a registration issued under section 823 of Title 21, ‘‘upon a finding that the registrant . . . has had his State license . . . suspended [or] revoked . . . by competent State authority and is no longer authorized by State law to engage in the . . . dispensing of controlled substances.’’ With respect to a practitioner, DEA has long held that the possession of authority to dispense controlled substances under the laws of the State in which a practitioner engages in professional practice is a fundamental condition for obtaining and maintaining a registration. See, e.g., James L. Hooper, 76 FR 71371 (2011), pet. for rev. denied, 481 Fed. Appx. 826 (4th Cir. 2012); see also Frederick Marsh Blanton, 43 FR 27616 (1978) (‘‘State authorization to dispense or otherwise handle controlled substances is a prerequisite to the issuance and maintenance of a Federal controlled substances registration.’’). This rule derives from the text of two provisions of the CSA. First, Congress defined ‘‘the term ‘practitioner’ [to] mean[] a . . . physician . . . or other person licensed, registered or otherwise permitted, by . . . the jurisdiction in which he practices . . . to distribute, dispense, [or] administer . . . a controlled substance in the course of professional practice.’’ 21 U.S.C. 802(21). Second, in setting the requirements for obtaining a practitioner’s registration, Congress directed that ‘‘[t]he Attorney General shall register practitioners . . . if the applicant is authorized to dispense . . . controlled substances under the laws of the State in which [s]he practices.’’ 21 U.S.C. 823(f). Because Congress has clearly mandated that a practitioner possess state authority in order to be deemed a practitioner under the Act, DEA has held repeatedly that revocation of a practitioner’s registration is the appropriate sanction whenever she is no longer authorized to dispense controlled substances under the laws of the State in which she engages in professional practice. See, e.g., Calvin Ramsey, 76 FR 20034, 20036 (2011); Sheran Arden 7 Registrant’s DEA registration information states that Registrant had a Nevada Controlled Substance License No. CS12166, but that it expired on October 31, 2016. I have queried the NSBME website regarding the status of Registrant’s controlled substance license, and I take official notice (see supra footnote 3) that Nevada’s online list of holders of active controlled substance licenses does not include Registrant by name or by her Nevada controlled substance registration number. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:06 Mar 30, 2018 Jkt 244001 Yeates, M.D., 71 FR 39130, 39131 (2006); Dominick A. Ricci, 58 FR 51104, 51105 (1993); Bobby Watts, 53 FR 11919, 11920 (1988); Blanton, 43 FR 27616 (1978). Thus, ‘‘the controlling question’’ in a proceeding brought under 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3) is whether the holder of a practitioner’s registration ‘‘is currently authorized to handle controlled substances in the [S]tate,’’ Hooper, 76 FR at 71371 (quoting Anne Lazar Thorn, 62 FR 12847, 12848 (1997)). Here, Registrant is no longer currently authorized to dispense controlled substances in Nevada, the State in which she is registered with the Agency. I will therefore revoke her DEA registration, deny any pending application to modify her registration, or any pending application for any other registration in Nevada. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of Registration No. ML0901985, issued to Angela L. Lorenzo, P.A., be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Angela L. Lorenzo to renew or modify the above registration, or any pending application of Angela L. Lorenzo for any other registration in the State of Nevada, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective immediately.8 Dated: March 24, 2018. Robert W. Patterson, Acting Administrator.

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 if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number.

Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation, Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, DOL. SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 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). This program helps to ensure that 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 on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs is soliciting comments concerning the proposed collection: Request to be Selected as Payee (CM–910). A copy of the proposed information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the ADDRESSES section below on or before April 2, 2018. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments by mail, delivery service or by hand to Ms. Yoon Ferguson, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave. NW, Room AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 S–3323, Washington, DC 20210; by fax to (202) 354–9647; or by Email to ferguson.yoon@dol.gov. Please use only one method of transmission for comments (mail/delivery, fax, or Email). Please note that comments submitted after the comment period will not be considered. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background: The Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA), 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq., provides for the payment of benefits to coal miners who are totally disabled due to pneumoconiosis and to certain survivors of the miner. If a beneficiary is incapable of handling his or her affairs, the person or institution responsible for their care is required to apply to receive the benefit payments on the beneficiary’s behalf. The CM–910 is the form completed by representative payee applicants. The payee applicant completes the form and either mails it or files it electronically through a web portal for evaluation by the district office that has jurisdiction over the beneficiary’s claim file. Regulations 20 CFR 725.505–513 require the collection of this information. This information collection is currently approved for use through June 30, 2018. 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; * 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 approval for the extension of this currently-approved information collection in order to carry out its responsibility to evaluate an applicant’s ability to be a representative payee. If the Program were not able to screen representative payee applicants, the beneficiaries’ best interests would not be served. Agency: Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs.
