The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 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 (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed three year extension of the Services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Report, ETA Form 5148, and the One-Stop Career Center Complaint/Referral Record, ETA Form 8429 from the current end date of September 30, 2005 to new end date of September 30, 2008.
Submit comments on or before September 19, 2005.

Employment and Training Administration regulations at 20 CFR 651, 653 and 658 under the Wagner Peyser Act, as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, set forth requirements to ensure that Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFWs) receive services that are qualitatively equivalent and quantitatively proportionate to the services provided to non-MSFWs. In compliance with 20 CFR 653.109, the Department of Labor established record keeping requirements to allow for the efficient and effective monitoring of State Workforce Agencies' (SWAs) regulatory compliance. The ETA Form 5148, Services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Report, is used to collect data which are primarily used to monitor and measure the extent and effectiveness of SWA service delivery to MSFWs. The ETA Form 8429, One-Stop Career Center Compliant Referral Record, is used to collect and document complaints filed by MSFWs and non-MSFWs pursuant to the regulatory framework established at 20 CFR 658.400.
