SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Confined Spaces in Construction Standard information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1926 subpart AA. The Standard specifies a number of information collection requirements that are fully explained in the ICR. The Confined Spaces in Construction Standard information collections permit employers and employees to evaluate the dangers in confined spaces before entry is attempted, and ensure that adequate measures are implemented to make the spaces safe for entry. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 sections 2(b)(9), 6(b)(7), and 8(c)(1) and (3) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(1), 655(b)(7), 657(c)(1), (3). 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 1218–0258. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 22, 2018 (83 FR 7782). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Jun 01, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 1218–0258. 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.

See 17 U.S.C. 111(d). The Copyright Royalty Judges (Judges) oversee distribution of royalties to copyright owners whose works were included in a qualifying transmission and who file a timely claim for royalties. Allocation of the royalties collected occurs in one of two ways. In the first instance, the Judges may authorize distribution in accordance with a negotiated settlement among all claiming parties. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(A). If all claimants do not reach agreement with respect to the royalties, the Judges must conduct a proceeding to determine ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\04JNN1.SGM 04JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 107 / Monday, June 4, 2018 / Notices the distribution of any royalties that remain in controversy. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(B). Alternatively, the Judges may, on motion of claimants and on notice to all interested parties, authorize a partial distribution of royalties, reserving on deposit sufficient funds to resolve identified disputes. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(C), 801(b)(3)(C). On May 18, 2018, representatives of the categorical groups of royalty claimants (Claimants) 1 filed with the Judges a motion pursuant to section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act requesting a partial distribution amounting to 50% of the 2016 cable royalty funds on deposit. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(3)(C). That statutory section requires that, before ruling on the motion, the Judges publish a notice in the Federal Register seeking responses to the motion for partial distribution to ascertain whether any claimant entitled to receive the subject royalties has a reasonable objection to the requested distribution. Accordingly, this Notice seeks comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 50% of the 2016 cable royalty funds to the Claimants. Parties objecting to the partial distribution must advise the Judges of the existence and extent of all objections by the end of the comment period. The Judges will not consider any objections with respect to the partial distribution that come to their attention after the close of the comment period.

In order to facilitate the self-assessment and information collection described in the Policy Statement, the NCUA provides NCUA Form 15004, ‘‘Annual Voluntary Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment,’’ to federally insured credit unions to perform their assessment and to submit information to the NCUA. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,600.
