OMB Number: 1557–0159. Description: This submission covers an existing regulation and involves no change to the regulation or to the information collection, other than the number of institutions. The OCC requests only that OMB extend its approval of the information collection. The Fair Housing Act (42 U.S.C. 3605) prohibits discrimination in the financing of housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (15 U.S.C. 1691 et seq.) prohibits discrimination in any aspect of a credit transaction on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, receipt of income from public assistance, or exercise of any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The information collection requirements ensure bank compliance with applicable Federal law, further bank safety and soundness, provide protections for banks and the public, and further public policy interests. On May 12, 2005, the OCC published in the Federal Register (70 FR 25157) a notice on the proposed clarifications to this information collection. The comment period expired on July 11, 2005. The OCC received no public comments and is now submitting its request to OMB for approval of this information collection.

Section 27.3 also lists exceptions to the HMDA–LAR recordkeeping requirements. Section 27.3 further lists the information banks should obtain from an applicant as part of a home loan application, and states information that a bank must disclose to an applicant. Section 27.4 states that the OCC may require a national bank to maintain a Fair Housing Inquiry/Application Log if there is reason to believe that the bank is engaging in discriminatory practices or if analysis of the data compiled by the bank under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (12 U.S.C. 2801 et seq.) and 12 CFR part 203 indicates a pattern of significant variation in the number of home loans between census tracts with PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 similar incomes and home ownership levels differentiated only by race or national origin. Section 27.5 requires a national bank to maintain the information for 25 months after the bank notifies the applicant of action taken on an application, or after withdrawal of an application. Section 27.7 requires a national bank to submit the information to the OCC upon its request, prior to a scheduled examination. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,908. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,908. Frequency of Response: On occasion.
