AGENCY: Department of Education.


[[Page 47564]]


SUMMARY: The Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, 
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 
November 16, 2009.

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 Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Division, 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.

(CIL) programs must submit an approvable three-year State Plan for 
Independent Living (SPIL) to the Rehabilitation Services Administration 
(RSA). The purpose of these programs is to promote the independent 
living philosophy--based on consumer control, peer support, self-help, 
self-determination, equal access and individual and systems advocacy--
to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence and productivity 
of individuals with significant disabilities and to promote and 
maximize the integration and full inclusion of individuals with 
significant disabilities into the mainstream of American society. The 
SPIL encompasses the activities planned by the State to achieve its 
specified independent living objectives and reflects the State's 
commitment to comply with all applicable statutory and regulatory 
requirements during the three years covered by the plan.
