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 
an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the 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.
    The Black Lung Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq., provides 
benefits to coal miners who are totally disabled by black lung disease 
arising out of coal mine employment, and certain dependents and 
survivors. When a miner applies for benefits, the Division of Coal Mine 
Workers' Compensation (DCMWC) is required to give the miner an 
opportunity to establish his or her eligibility by providing a complete 
pulmonary evaluation, including a chest radiograph (X-ray), physical 
examination, pulmonary function test (also known as a ventilatory 
study), and arterial blood gas study. 30 U.S.C. 923(b); 20 CFR 718.101, 
725.406. Forms CM-933, 933b, 988, 988a, 1159, and 2907 are used by 
physicians to report the results of these diagnostic tests. The 
information collected on these forms is used to determine 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., and 
implementing regulation, 20 CFR 725.406, 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 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. Written comments will receive 
consideration, and summarized and included in the request for OMB 
approval of the final ICR. To help ensure appropriate consideration, 
comments should mention 1240-0023.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
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 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
