Download as PDF 12176 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 50 / Thursday, March 15, 2007 / Notices regulation that waived the requirement for states to submit Section 303(d) lists in 2000 except in cases where a court order, consent decree, or settlement agreement required EPA to take action on a list in 2000 (65 FR 17170). Consistent with EPA’s regulations, California submitted to EPA its listing decisions under Section 303(d)(2) on November 24, 2006. On November 30, 2006, EPA approved California’s list of impaired waters, except Walnut Creek Toxicity. EPA disapproved California’s decisions not to list 64 water quality limited segments and associated pollutants, and additional pollutants for 37 water bodies already listed by the State. EPA identified these additional waters and pollutants for inclusion on the 2004–2006 Section 303(d) list. EPA solicits public comment on its identification of these additional waters and associated pollutants for inclusion on California’s 2004–2006 Section 303(d) list. Dated: March 8, 2007.

Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks wishing to exercise trust powers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 18. Estimated Time per Response for Eligible Depository Institutions: 8 hours. Estimated Time per Response for Institutions that do not Qualify as Eligible Institutions: 24 hours. Total Annual Burden: 208 hours. General Description of Collection: FDIC regulations (12 CFR 333.2) prohibit any insured state nonmember bank from changing the general character of its business without the prior written consent of the FDIC. The exercise of trust powers by a bank is usually considered to be a change in the general character of a bank’s business if the bank did not exercise those powers previously. Therefore, unless a bank is currently exercising trust powers, it must file a formal application to obtain the FDIC’s written consent to exercise trust powers. State banking authorities, not the FDIC, grant trust powers to their banks. The FDIC merely consents to the exercise of such powers. Applicants use form FDIC 6200/09 to obtain FDIC’s consent. 2. Title: Interagency Guidance on Asset Securitization Activities. OMB Number: 3064–0137. Form Number: None. Frequency of Response: On occasion.

General Description of Collection: The collection applies to institutions engaged in asset securitization and consists in recordkeeping requirements associated with developing or upgrading a written asset securitization policy, documenting fair value of retained interests, and a management information system to monitor securitization activities. Bank managements use this information as the basis for the safe and sound operation of their asset securitization activities and to ensure that they minimize operational risk in these activities. The FDIC uses the information to evaluate the quality of an institution’s risk management practices, and to assist institutions without proper internal supervision of their asset securitization activities to implement corrective action to conduct these activities in a safe and sound manner. 3. Title: Consumer Protections for Depository Institution Sales of Insurance. OMB Number: 3064–0140. Form Number: None. Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether these collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 50 / Thursday, March 15, 2007 / Notices burden of the information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
