placed into OMB's public docket files. The Federal Reserve may not 
conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to,

Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, without revision, of the following report:

    Report title: Domestic Branch Notification
    Agency form number: FR 4001
    OMB control number: 7100-0097
    Frequency: On occasion
    Reporters: State member banks
    Annual reporting hours: 2,244 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 30 minutes for expedited 
notifications; 1 hour for nonexpedited notifications
    Number of respondents: 382 expedited; 2,053 nonexpedited
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory per Section 9(3) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. Sec.  
321) and is not given confidential treatment.
    Abstract: The Federal Reserve Act and Regulation H require a state 
member bank to seek prior approval of the Federal Reserve System before 
establishing or acquiring a domestic branch. Such requests for approval 
must be filed as notifications at the appropriate Reserve Bank for the 
state member bank. Due to the limited information that a state member 
bank generally has to provide for branch proposals, there is no formal 
reporting form for a domestic branch notification.

[[Page 61473]]

A state member bank is required to notify the Federal Reserve by letter 
of its intent to establish one or more new branches, and provide with 
the letter evidence that public notice of the proposed branch(es) has 
been published by the state member bank in the appropriate 
newspaper(s). The Federal Reserve uses the information provided to 
fulfill its statutory obligation to review any public comment on 
proposed branches before acting on the proposals, and otherwise to 
supervise state member banks.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, October 12, 
2006.
Jennifer J. Johnson,
Secretary of the Board.
