SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, DOL conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data is provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. ETA’s administrative procedures regulation, found at 20 CFR 601, sets out the collection of information requirements. Sections 601.2 requires states to submit copies of their unemployment compensation (UC) laws for approval by the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) so that the Secretary may determine the status of state laws and plans of operation. Section 601.3 requires states to ‘‘submit all relevant state materials such as statutes, executive and administrative orders, legal opinions, rules, regulations, interpretations, court decisions, etc.’’ These materials are used by the Secretary to determine whether the state law contains provisions required by Section 3304(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. DOL provides grants to states to fund the administration of their employment security laws if their UC laws and their plans of operation for public employment offices meet required conditions of Federal laws. The information transmitted by Form MA 8– 7 is used by the Secretary to make findings (as specified in the above cited Federal laws) required for certification to the Secretary of the Treasury for payment to states or for certification of VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Dec 27, 2018 Jkt 247001 the state law for purposes of providing additional tax credits to employers in states with UC laws conforming to Federal law. If this information is not available, the Secretary cannot make such certifications. To facilitate transmittal of required material, DOL prescribes the use of Form MA 8–7, Transmittal for Unemployment Insurance Materials. This simple checkoff form is used by the states to identify material being transmitted to the National Office and allows the material to be routed to appropriate staff for prompt action. 20 CFR 601.2 and 601.3 authorize this information collection. 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 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. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB control number 1205– 0222. Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages commenters not to include personally identifiable information, confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/ information in any comments. DOL 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 PO 00000 Frm 00145 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67355 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: As part of continuing efforts to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, DOL conducts a pre-clearance 
consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies 
an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested 
data is provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and 
financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
assessed.
    ETA's administrative procedures regulation, found at 20 CFR 601, 
sets out the collection of information requirements. Sections 601.2 
requires states to submit copies of their unemployment compensation 
(UC) laws for approval by the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) so that 
the Secretary may determine the status of state laws and plans of 
operation. Section 601.3 requires states to ``submit all relevant state 
materials such as statutes, executive and administrative orders, legal 
opinions, rules, regulations, interpretations, court decisions, etc.''
    These materials are used by the Secretary to determine whether the 
state law contains provisions required by Section 3304(a) of the 
Internal Revenue Code of 1986. DOL provides grants to states to fund 
the administration of their employment security laws if their UC laws 
and their plans of operation for public employment offices meet 
required conditions of Federal laws. The information transmitted by 
Form MA 8-7 is used by the Secretary to make findings (as specified in 
the above cited Federal laws) required for certification to the 
Secretary of the Treasury for payment to states or for certification of 
the state law for purposes of providing additional tax credits to 
employers in states with UC laws conforming to Federal law. If this 
information is not available, the Secretary cannot make such 
certifications. To facilitate transmittal of required material, DOL 
prescribes the use of Form MA 8-7, Transmittal for Unemployment 
Insurance Materials. This simple check-off form is used by the states 
to identify material being transmitted to the National Office and 
allows the material to be routed to appropriate staff for prompt 
action. 20 CFR 601.2 and 601.3 authorize this information collection.
    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 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.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the 
contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to 
receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB control number 
1205-0222.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    DOL 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.
