Section 317(c) of the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 877(c), and 30 CFR 75.1702 prohibit persons from smoking or carrying smoking materials underground or in places where there is a fire or explosion hazard. Under the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 877(c) and 75.1702, coal mine operators are required to develop programs to prevent persons from carrying smoking materials, matches, or lighters underground and to prevent smoking in hazardous areas, such as in or around oil houses, explosives magazines or other areas where such practice may cause a fire or explosion. Section 75.1702–1 requires a mine operator to submit a smoking prevention plan to MSHA for approval under section 75.1702 to MSHA for approval. Section 103(h) of the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 813, authorizes MSHA to collect information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of miners. These information collection requirements help to ensure that a fire or explosion hazard does not occur. II.

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

understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
assessed.
    The ETA Nonmonetary Determination Activity Report collects state 
data on the number and types of issues that are adjudicated when 
unemployment insurance (UI) claims are filed. It also collects data on 
the number of disqualifications that are issued for reasons associated 
with a claimant's separation from employment and for reasons related to 
a claimant's continuing eligibility for benefits. ETA uses this data to 
determine workload counts for allocation of administrative funds, to 
analyze the ratio of disqualifications to determinations, and to 
examine and evaluate the program effect of nonmonetary activities. 42 
U.S.C. 503(a)(6) of the Social Security Act authorizes this information 
collection.

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

ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. DOL encourages

burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
