Notice of permit applications received. AGENCY: ACTION: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is required to publish a notice of permit applications received to conduct activities regulated under the Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978. NSF has published regulations under the Antarctic Conservation Act in the Code of Federal Regulations. This is the required notice of permit applications received. SUMMARY: Interested parties are invited to submit written data, comments, or views with respect to this permit application by January 2, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Science Foundation, as directed by the Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95–541, 45 CFR 670), as amended by the Antarctic Science, Tourism and Conservation Act of 1996, has developed regulations for the establishment of a permit system for DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66223 various activities in Antarctica and designation of certain animals and certain geographic areas a requiring special protection. The regulations establish such a permit system to designate Antarctic Specially Protected Areas. Application Details Permit Application: 2020–013 1. Applicant: Nicholas Teets, Department of Entomology, University of Kentucky, S–225 Agricultural Science Center, North, Lexington, KY 40546. Activity for Which Permit is Requested: Enter Antarctic Specially Protected Area (ASPA). The applicant proposes to collect midges (Belgica antarctica) from sites along the Antarctic Peninsula for physiology and genetic studies. Sample collections would require access to several ASPAs (108, 126, & 134) and sites within ASMA 7, Southwest Anvers Island and Palmer Basin. Collection of the midges would have minimal to no ecological impacts. Any rocks disturbed would be returned to their original location and position. Very little, if any, plant material would be removed and it would typically be dead or decaying. The local abundances of midges are very high, so the sample collections are expected to have very minimal impact on local populations. The applicant would also collect a small amount of algae (Prasiola crispa) to serve as a food source for midges in the laboratory. Location: Antarctic Peninsula region; ASMA 7, Southwest Anvers Island and Palmer Basin; ASPA 108, Green Island, Berthelot Islands; ASPA 126, Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island, South Shetland Islands; ASPA 134 Cierva Point and offshore islands, Danco Coast, Antarctic Peninsula.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 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

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 collection of information is required to administer the 
benefit payment provisions of the Black Lung Benefits Act for survivors 
of deceased miners. Completion of this form constitutes the application 
for benefits by survivors and assists in determining the survivor's 
entitlement to benefits. Form CM-912 is authorized for use by the Black 
Lung Benefits Act (30 U.S.C. 901, et seq.) and regulations (20 CFR

to determine whether the survivor is entitled to benefits. This 
information collection is currently approved for use through March 31, 
2020.
    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

ICR and posted on the internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    The 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
