Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management 
Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed 
information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
April 15, 2008.

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 IC Clearance Official, Regulatory 
Information Management Services, Office of Management, 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.
    The Department of Education is especially interested in public 
comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection 
necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this 
information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the 
estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 
(5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on 
the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

    Abstract: The Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), 
Title II of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), Public Law 105-
220 provides formula funding to States to support adult education 
instruction at the State level. Section 224 of Public Law 105-220 
required States submit to the Department their plan for how they 
address the requirements of the Act, including agreeing upon levels of 
performance identified in section 212. Congress did not enact new 
legislation prior to the expiration of the law in 2003, however, they 
continue to extend program appropriations for each additional year in 
annual appropriation laws, respectively. While it is unlikely that 
Congress will reauthorize the expired Workforce Investment Act of 1998 
(WIA) this year, appropriations for FY 2008 was signed into law by the 
President on December 27, 2007. This Guide will continue to, as it has 
since the expiration of WIA advise States on how to continue their 
Adult Education programs. Requests for copies of the proposed
