Oct 6 -- The Department of Labor's (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed revision to the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, “Federal-State Unemployment Insurance Program Data Exchange Standardization.” Consideration will be given to all written comments received by December 5, 2022.

The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (the Act) was signed into law on February 22, 2012. Section 2104 of the Act amends Title IX, Social Security Act by adding a new section 911 (42 U.S.C. 1111), which requires the Department to issue rules, developed in consultation with an interagency workgroup established by OMB, that establish data exchange standards for certain functions related to administration of the unemployment insurance (UI) program. The rule designates XML (eXtensible Markup Language) as the data exchange standard for the real-time applications on the Interstate Connection Network (ICON) and for State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES). States are required to conform to the XML data exchange standard for these applications. DOL's regulations implementing this Act, codified in 20 CFR part 619 https://www.ecfr.gov/current/title-20/part-619, authorizes this information collection. This is a proposed extension with revision. The number of states that the Data Exchange Standardization rule affects has changed from 25 to 15, as more states have implemented this rule.
Draft data collection instruments and technical documentation requested from ETA by AEA.
