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 proposed extension of collection of the Workforce Flexibility (Work-Flex) Partnership Demonstration Program and General Statutory Waivers. A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the addressee section of this notice. DATES: Writteen comments must be submitted to the office listed in the addressee section below on or before July 15, 1997. The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 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; and • 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 electronic submissions of responses.

guidance to the employment and training community and submittal of waivers. Because these waivers were granted under emergency procedures the period covered only extended to June 30. This period was subsequently extended until September 30. To permit States the opportunity to continue to submit such requests an extension of this authority is needed. II. Current Actions ETA is anticipating upwards of 600 waiver requests during the next several months. Only the waiver requests from Oregon have been approved thus far. The authority requested remains unchanged. It would permit States to submit general statutory waiver request covering Titles I–III of the JTPA and sections 8–10 of Wagner Peyser. The same exclusions would be retained under this request. Also it would permit submittal of work-flex applications if the full contingent of six States have not been approved based on the initial round of applications. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Agency: U.S. Department of Labor/ ETA. Title: Workforce Flexibility (WorkFlex) Partnership Demonstration Program. OMB Number: 1205–0375. Affected Public: States. Total Respondents: 56. Frequency: On occasion. Total Responses: 10 potential. Average Time per Response: 80. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 800. Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): -0-. Total Burden Cost (operating/ maintaining): $2,500. Title: General Statutory Waivers. OMB Number: 1205–0376. Affected Public: States. Total Respondents: 56. Frequency: On occasion. Total Responses: 20 potential. Average Time per Response: 80. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 1600. Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): -0-. Total Burden Cost (operating/ maintaining): $2,500. Comments submitted in response to this comment request will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment Standards Administration Wage and Hour Division; Minimum Wages for Federal and Federally Assisted Construction; General Wage Determination Decisions General wage determination decisions of the Secretary of Labor are issued in accordance with applicable law and are based on the information obtained by the Department of Labor from its study of local wage conditions and data made available from other sources. They specify the basic hourly wage rates and fringe benefits which are determined to be prevailing for the described classes of laborers and mechanics employed on construction projects of a similar character and in the localities specified therein. The determinations in these decisions of prevailing rates and fringe benefits have been made in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1, by authority of the Secretary of Labor pursuant to the provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act of March 3, 1931, as amended (46 Stat. 1494, as amended, 40 U.S.C. 276a) and of other Federal statutes referred to in 29 CFR Part 1, Appendix, as well as such additional statutes as may from time to time be enacted containing provisions for the payment of wages determined to be prevailing by the Secretary of Labor in accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act. The prevailing rates and fringe benefits determined in these decisions shall, in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing statutes, constitute the minimum wages payable on Federal and federally assisted construction projects to laborers and mechanics of the specified classes engaged on contract work of the character and in the localities described therein. Good cause is hereby found for not utilizing notice and public comment procedure thereon prior to the issuance of these determinations as prescribed in 5 U.S.C. 553 and not providing for delay in the effective date as prescribed in that section, because the necessity to issue current construction industry wage determinations frequently and in large volume causes procedures to be impractical and contrary to the public interest.
