Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Beryllium rocket motor fuel firing test sites. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 61, subpart D). Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total). Frequency of response: Annually. Total estimated burden: 9 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $1,110 (per year), which includes $0 for annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in burden from the mostrecently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for this industry is very low or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, there are also no changes in the capital/startup and/or operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

No comments were received from the public during the 60-day public comment period. Overview of Information Collection Collection Title: State and Local Government Information Report (EEO– 4). OMB Number: 3046–0008. Frequency of Report: Biennial, odd years. Type of Respondent: State and local governments with 100 or more employees within the 50 U.S. states and District of Columbia. Description of Affected Public: State and local governments with 100 or more employees within the 50 U.S. states and District of Columbia. Reporting Hours: 95,542 per biennial collection. Burden Hour Cost: $4,719,509.02 per biennial collection. Federal Cost: $386,609.20 per biennial collection. Number of Respondents: 5,687. Number of Responses: 13,649. Number of Forms: 1. Form Number: EEOC Form 164. Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e–8(c), requires State and local governments to make and keep records relevant to a determination of whether unlawful employment practices have been or are being committed and produce reports required by the EEOC. Accordingly, the EEOC issued regulations, 29 CFR 1602.30 and 1602.32–.37, which set forth the reporting requirements and related record retention policies for State and local governments. 29 CFR 1602.30 requires every covered State and local government to make or keep all records necessary for completion of an EEO–4 submission and retain those records for three years. 29 CFR 1602.32 requires filers to retain a copy of each filed EEO–4 report for three years. These requirements are related to recordkeeping, which is part of standard administrative practices, and as a result, the EEOC believes that any impact on burden would be negligible and nearly impossible to quantify. State and local governments with 100 or more employees have been required to submit EEO–4 reports since 1974 (biennially since 1993). The EEOC uses EEO–4 data for research and to investigate charges of discrimination. The individual reports are confidential. Burden Statement: The methodology for calculating annual burden reflects the different staff that are responsible for preparing and filing the EEO–4. These estimates are based on the estimated submission time of 7 hours per reporting unit, as published in the 2018 EEO–4 Information Collection Review as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act.1 The EEOC accounts for time to be spent biennially on EEO–4 reporting by senior and administrative staff, as well as time spent by computer support specialists, executive administrative staff, and payroll and human resource professionals; the revised estimate also includes attorneys who may consult briefly during the reporting process. The estimated number of respondents included in the biennial EEO–4 data collection is 5,687 State and local governments, as this is the average number of reporting units between 2005 and 2019. These 5,687 respondents will submit an estimated 13,649 reports during each biennial reporting cycle. The estimated hour burden per report will be 7 hours, and the estimated total biennial respondent burden hours will be 95,542. Burden hour cost was calculated using median hourly wage rates for administrative staff and legal counsel, and average hourly wage rates for State and local government staff. The burden hour cost per report will be $214.77, and the estimated total burden hour cost per 1 For more information, please see: https:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewICR?ref_ nbr=201804-3046-001.

    Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 
1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), requires State and local 
governments to make and keep records relevant to a determination of

regulations, 29 CFR 1602.30 and 1602.32-.37, which set forth the 
reporting requirements and related record retention policies for State 
and local governments. 29 CFR 1602.30 requires every covered State and 
local government to make or keep all records necessary for completion 
of an EEO-4 submission and retain those records for three years. 29 CFR 
1602.32 requires filers to retain a copy of each filed EEO-4 report for 
three years. These requirements are related to recordkeeping, which is 
part of standard administrative practices, and as a result, the EEOC 
believes that any impact on burden would be negligible and nearly

employees have been required to submit EEO-4 reports since 1974 
(biennially since 1993). The EEOC uses EEO-4 data for research and to

    Burden Statement: The methodology for calculating annual burden 
reflects the different staff that are responsible for preparing and
