SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Annual Report for Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements information collection. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, codified as Part 7 of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), was enacted to improve the portability and continuity of health care coverage for group health plan participants and beneficiaries. In the interest of assuring compliance with Part 7, ERISA section 101(g) further permits the Secretary of Labor to require a MEWA (multiple employer welfare arrangements), as defined in ERISA section 3(40), to report to the Secretary in such form and manner as the Secretary might determine. Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) section 101(g) authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1021(g). 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 the OMB under the PRA approves it 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 PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1210– 0116. 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, 2019. 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 October 23, 2018 (83 FR 53500).
