SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to

    The Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq., provides for 
the payment of benefits to coal miners who are totally disabled by 
black lung disease arising out of coal mine employment, and certain

Form CM-913 is used along with medical information to establish whether 
the miner is totally disabled due to black lung disease caused by coal 
mine employment. The Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq.,

authorize 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 the OMB under the PRA approves it and the collection 
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. This information collection is currently approved
