SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform
its statutory obligations. The Leader, Information Management Group,
Office of the Chief Information Officer, publishes that notice
containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission
of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped
by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g.
new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3)
Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and
proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of
collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites
public comment.

      Abstract: The ED Exchange Visitor Waiver Review Board makes
recommendations to the Justice Department through the U.S. Information
Agency (USIA) for waiver of the two-year foreign residency requirement
for exchange visitors who have been granted J-1 visas. This application
will be used by educational or rehabilitative institutions or
organizations that apply to the Department of Education to request a
recommendation for a waiver on behalf of an exchange visitor. As a
result of the regulation reinvention efforts, the Federal Regulations
governing this process were eliminated October 1, 1996.
