SCE requested the time period to receive acknowledgement that the shipment has been received by the intended recipient be extended from 20 to 45 days. SCE requested this change to avoid an excessive administrative burden, because its operational experience indicates that these shipments may take more than 20 days to reach their destination.

programs: Current Employment Statistics, Local Area Unemployment 
Statistics, Occupational Employment Statistics, and Quarterly Census of

requirements imposed by the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost 
Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR 200) and 
other grant related regulations. The information collected also is used

Office of Management and Budget for review of any minor year-to-year 
information collection burden changes they may contain.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
LMI Cooperative Agreement application package.

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.
     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
