SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Office of Management and 
Budget (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.
    Public Law 97-362, Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1982, amended the 
Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Sevicemembers (UCX) law (5 U.S.C. 
8509), and Public Law 96-499, Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, 
amended the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) law 
(5 U.S.C. 8501, et. seq.) requiring each Federal employing agency to 
pay the costs of regular and extended UCFE/UCX benefits paid to its 
employees by the State Workforce Agencies (SWAs). The ETA 191 report 
submitted quarterly by each SWA shows the amount of benefits that 
should be charged to each Federal employing agency. ETA's Office of 
Unemployment Insurance uses this information to aggregate the SWA 
quarterly charges and submit one official bill to each Federal agency 
being charged. Federal agencies then reimburse the Federal Employees 
Compensation Account maintained by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. 
The Social Security Act, Section 303 (a) (6), authorizes 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 it is approved by OMB under the PRA and
