DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

Employment and Training Administration

Proposed Information Collection Request Submitted for Public 
Comment and Recommendations; Attestations by Employers Using Alien 
Crewmembers for Longshore Activities at Locations in the State of 
Alaska

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: 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 proposed extension to the collection of 
information on the Attestation by Employers Using Alien Crewmembers to 
Perform Longshore Work at Locations in the State of Alaska. 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: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the 
addressee section below on or before January 28, 2002.

ADDRESSES: Comments and questions regarding the collection of 
information on Form ETA 9033-A, Attestation by Employers Using Alien 
Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in the State of Alaska, should be 
directed to Dale Ziegler, Chief, Division of Foreign Labor 
Certifications, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Room C-4318, Washington, DC 20210 ((202) 693-3010 (this is not a toll-
free number)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The information collection is required due to amendments to section 
258 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) 
(INA). The amendments created an Alaska exception to the general 
prohibition on the performance of longshore work by alien crewmembers 
in U.S. ports. Under the Alaska exception, before any employer may use 
alien crewmembers to perform longshore work in the State of Alaska, it 
must submit an attestation to ETA containing the elements prescribed by 
the INA.
    The INA further requires that the Department make available for 
public examination in Washington, DC, a list of employers which have 
filed attestations, and for each such employer, a copy of the 
employer's attestation and accompanying documentation it has received.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 
which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed information collection 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 collections 
techniques or other forms of information, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

    In order for the Department to meet its statutory responsibilities 
under the INA there is a need for an extension of an existing 
collection of information pertaining to employers' seeking to use alien 
crewmembers to perform longshore activities at locations in the State 
of Alaska.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection 
without change.
    Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.
    Title: Attestations by Employers Using Alien Crewmembers for 
Longshore Activities at Locations in the State of Alaska.
    OMB Number: 1205-0352.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
    Form: Form ETA 9033-A.
    Total Respondents: 350.

    Frequency of Response: Annually.
    Total Responses: 350.
    Average Burden Hours Per Response: 3.

    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget 
approval of the information collection request; they will also be 
become a matter of public record.

    Signed at Washington, DC this 20th day of November, 2001.
Grace A. Kilbane,
Administrator, Office of Workforce Security.
