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)].

Currently, the Employment Standards Administration is soliciting comments concerning the proposal to extend OMB approval of the information collection: Regulations 29 CFR Part 547, Requirements of a ``Bona Fide Thrift or Savings Plan'' and Regulations 29 CFR Part 549, Requirements of a ``Bona Fide Profit-Sharing Plan or Trust''.
