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

its statutory obligations. The Leader, Regulatory Information

that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior
