Comment Request for Information Collection for the National Agricultural Workers Survey, OMB Control No. 1205-0453; Extension With Revisions
The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that 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 on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment and Training Administration is soliciting comments concerning the continued collection of data about hired farm workers via the National Agricultural Workers Survey. Office of Management and Budget authorization for the current questionnaire will expire on March 31, 2010.
