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 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 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. ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data in the ETA 9048, Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Activity Report, and the ETA 9049, Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Outcomes Report. Authorization for both reports expires on November 30, 2019. The Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program, mandated by the Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 1993, Public Law 103– 152, identifies and ranks unemployment insurance (UI) claimants by their potential for exhausting their benefits before returning to work and refers these claimants to appropriate reemployment services. WPRS is a required UI activity that each state may operate as a standalone program or integrated within the state’s Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment Program (RESEA), which is a voluntary reemployment program authorized by Section 306 of the Social Security Act (SSA). Specifically, states participating in the RESEA program may opt to integrate WPRS into the RESEA participant selection process.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Gamma radiation occurs where radioactive materials are present. It has been associated with lung cancer and other debilitating occupational diseases. Natural sources include rocks, soils, and ground water. Gamma radiation hazards may be found near radiation sources at surface operations using X-ray machines, weightometers, nuclear and diffraction units. Nuclear gauges mounted outside tanks, pipes, bins, hoppers or other types of vessels; gamma rays are used to sense the level and density of liquids, slurries or solids. Gamma rays penetrate the body and can kill or damage cells in their path that can affect many of the body’s organs. The adverse health effects from exposure to gamma radiation can vary depending upon the type of cell affected and the extent of damage. Under Section 103(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is required to ‘‘. . . issue regulations requiring operators to maintain accurate records of employee exposures to potentially toxic materials or harmful physical agents which are required to be monitored or measured under any applicable mandatory health or safety standard promulgated under this Act.’’ In addition, 30 CFR 57.5047(a) requires that gamma radiation surveys be conducted annually in all underground mines where radioactive ores are mined. 30 CFR 57.5047(c) requires that gamma radiation dosimeters be provided for all persons exposed to average gamma radiation measurements in excess of 2.0 milliroentgens per hour in the working E:\FR\FM\03MYN1.SGM 03MYN1

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 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 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.
    ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data in the 
ETA 9048, Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Activity Report, 
and the ETA 9049, Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Outcomes 
Report. Authorization for both reports expires on November 30, 2019. 
The Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program, mandated 
by the Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 1993, Public Law 103-
152, identifies and ranks unemployment insurance (UI) claimants by 
their potential for exhausting their benefits before returning to work 
and refers these claimants to appropriate reemployment services.
    WPRS is a required UI activity that each state may operate as a 
standalone program or integrated within the state's Reemployment 
Services and Eligibility Assessment Program (RESEA), which is a 
voluntary reemployment program authorized by Section 306 of the Social 
Security Act (SSA). Specifically, states participating in the RESEA 
program may opt to integrate WPRS into the RESEA participant selection 
process. Additional information about the integration of WPRS into 
RESEA is available in Unemployment Insurance Program Letter No. 07-19, 
``Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Funding Allotments and Operating Guidance for 
Unemployment Insurance (UI) Reemployment Services and Eligibility 
Assessment (RESEA) Grants.''
    The ETA 9048 and ETA 9049 reports are the only means of tracking 
the activities in the WPRS program. The ETA 9048 report describes the 
number of claimants at various points in the WPRS system from initial 
profiling through the completion of specific reemployment services. The 
ETA 9049 describes the reemployment experience of profiled claimants 
selected for referral to services by examining the

[[Page 19120]]

state's existing wage record files to capture which quarter the 
individuals who received reemployment services became employed, what 
wages they earned, and whether the individuals receiving services 
changed industries. Section 303(a)(6), SSA, 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 
1205-0353.
    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:

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
