While the overall number of responses remains fairly steady, MSHA is projecting a decrease in the number of unique respondents due to the reduction in the less productive and marginal mining operations as coal prices and exports continue to decline. A slight increase in burden hours is due to the projected increase in the number certifications for dust sampling to more accurately reflect the number of individuals that were actually certified in the recent past. The increase in projected costs is due to the cost of sampling equipment, and related operational, maintenance and contract services cost increasing substantially since the last submission.
