SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey information collection. The JOLTS collects data on job vacancies, labor hires, and labor separations. The data can be used as demand-side indicators of labor shortages. These indicators of labor shortages at the national level greatly enhance policy makers’ understanding of imbalances between the demand and supply of labor. Presently there is no other economic indicator of labor demand with which to assess the presence of labor shortages in the U.S. labor market. The availability of unfilled jobs is an important measure of tightness of job markets, symmetrical to unemployment measures. BLS Authorizing Statute sections 1 and 2 authorize 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 PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 1220–0170. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2018. 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 April 10, 2018 (83 FR 15408). 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 1220–0170. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Occupational Requirements Survey (ORS). The ORS is a nationwide survey the BLS is conducting at the request of the Social Security Administration (SSA). The ORS began in 2018 and will end in mid2021. The currently approved portions of this data collection will continue as scheduled. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of new cognitive questions and physical formatting changes to the collection form. The BLS Authorizing Statute and the Economy Act authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 9, 9(a), and 31 U.S.C. 1535. 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 1220–0189. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2018; 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 December 27, 2017 (82 FR 61330). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30779 publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey information collection. The 
JOLTS collects data on job vacancies, labor hires, and labor 
separations. The data can be used as demand-side indicators of labor 
shortages. These indicators of labor shortages at the national level 
greatly enhance policy makers' understanding of imbalances between the 
demand and supply of labor. Presently there is no other economic 
indicator of labor demand with which to assess the presence of labor 
shortages in the U.S. labor market. The availability of unfilled jobs 
is an important measure of tightness of job markets, symmetrical to 
unemployment measures. BLS Authorizing Statute sections 1 and 2 
authorize 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

    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on June 30, 2018. 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
