Type of Information Collection: Update with changes, of the Department VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:33 Jul 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 of Justice Equitable Sharing Agreement and Certification, a previously approved collection for which approval will expire on November 30, 2018. 2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Department of Justice Equitable Sharing Agreement and Certification. 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: There is not an agency form number. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section (‘‘MLARS’’), in the Criminal Division. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: The Attorney General is required by statute to ‘‘assure that any property transferred to a State or local law enforcement agency . . . will serve to encourage further cooperation between the recipient State or local agency and Federal law enforcement agencies.’’ 21 U.S.C. 881(e)(3). MLARS ensures such cooperation by requiring that all such ‘‘equitably shared’’ funds be used only for law enforcement purposes and not be distributed to other governmental agencies by the recipient law enforcement agencies. By requiring that law enforcement agencies that participate in the Equitable Sharing Program (Program) file an Equitable Sharing Agreement and Certification (ESAC), MLARS can readily ensure compliance with its statutory obligations. The ESAC requires information regarding the receipt and expenditure of Program funds from the participating agency. Accordingly, it seeks information that is exclusively in the hands of the participating agency. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 6,900 state and local law enforcement agencies electronically file the ESAC annually with MLARS. It is estimated that it takes 30 minutes per year to enter the information. All of the approximately 6,500 agencies must fully complete the form each year to maintain compliance and continue participation in the Department of Justice Equitable Sharing Program. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 3,250 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take 30 minutes to complete the form. (6,500 participants × 30 minutes = 3,250 hours).

those who file a claim in the week containing the 19th day of the 
month, which reflects unemployment during the week containing the 12th 
day of the month. This corresponds with the sample frame used by the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics for the production of labor force statistics 
they produce. This report serves a variety of socio-economic needs 
because it provides aggregate data reflecting UI claimants' sex, race/
ethnic group, age, industry, and occupation. The Social Security Act,

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
