Section 241 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (Act), provides that: ‘‘the Secretary shall from time to time certify to the Secretary of the Treasury for payment to each cooperating state the sums necessary to enable such State as agents of the United States to make payments provided for by this chapter.’’ As such, states may request reserve funds to cover the costs of training, job search allowances and relocation allowances, employment and case management services, and state administration of these benefits before DOL issues the final distribution of state allocations. Reserve funds are distributed to states in accordance with 20 CFR 618.920 on an as-needed basis in response to requests to provide monies to those states that experience large, unexpected layoffs, or otherwise have financial needs that are not met by their initial allocation. These funds are requested using the Form ETA–9117. Section 236(a)(2)(D) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, authorizes this information collection. The current approved version of the collection is based on amendments made to the Act through the Trade Reform Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–210). Since that time, there have been three additional major amendments to the Act, most recently through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–27). One of the major changes authorized funding for the provision of employment and case management services under Section 235 of the Act. The current collection does not take into account this authorized expenditure category. The revised collection will substitute information currently required on expenditures and obligations of funds for the job search allowances and relocation allowances under Section 237 and 238 of the Act, respectively, for information on expenditures and obligations under the Section 235 of the Act. The Department has also refined the layout of the form for clarity. The change will not affect the burden of this collection, and there is no additional cost to respondents. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Mar 28, 2019 Jkt 247001 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– 0275. 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation 
program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an 
opportunity to

[[Page 12005]]

comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before 
submitting them to the OMB for final approval. This program helps to 
ensure 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 can be properly assessed.
    This ICR collects the required information for work applications 
and job order recordkeeping. The exact information collected is 
determined by the State. At a minimum, the information to be collected 
is that which enables the State to comply with regulations under 20 CFR 
652 and the Wagner-Peyser Act.
    In June 2016, OMB approved the Information Collection Request 
(ICR), OMB control number 1205-0001, that allows the Department of 
Labor and Department of Education (the Departments) to collect 
information from States pertaining to work applications and job orders 
and their retention of that data. OMB granted approval for the ICR 
through September of 2019. 29 U.S.C. 49 (The Wagner-Peyser Act) 
authorizes 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 
1205-0001.
    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.
    Agency: DOL-ETA.
    Type of Review: Extension without changes.
