SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Terrorism Risk Insurance Program—Rebuttal of Controlling Influence Submissions. OMB Number: 1506–0190. Abstract: Sections 103(a) and 104 of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–297) (and unchanged by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Extension Act of 2005, Public Law 109– 144) authorize the Department of Treasury to administer and implement the temporary Terrorism Risk Insurance Program established by the Act. The definition of control in section 102(3) of the Act provides for Treasury to determine whether an insurer directly or indirectly exercises a controlling influence over the management or policies of another insurer. Among other things, if one insurer controls another insurer, then the insurers are deemed ‘‘affiliates’’ under the Program and their direct earned premium must be consolidated for purposes of calculating the ‘‘insurer deductible’’. The ‘‘insurer deductible, in turn, forms the basis for ascertaining federal payments made by Treasury under the Act. Treasury promulgated procedures at 31 CFR 50.8 for an insurer to follow in seeking to rebut a regulatory presumption of ‘‘controlling influence’’ over another insurer. These procedures require insurers to provide Treasury necessary DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information to determine whether a ‘‘controlling influence’’ exists, and if it does, whether it has been rebutted. No assurance of confidentiality has been provided, although applicable exemptions under the Freedom of Information Act could apply, e.g., to any confidential business or trade secret material submitted. Current Actions: No changes are being made at this time. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit, Federal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10. Estimated Time per Respondent: 40 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 400 hours. Request for Comments: An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid OMB control number. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance and purchase of services to provide information.
