This information is also important to the municipal securities dealer’s customers and to the public, because it provides, among other things, the name and address of a person to contact regarding any of the municipal securities dealer’s unfinished business.

The staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 15Bc3–1 is 0.5 hours. The average cost per hour is approximately $101. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for the respondents is $1010 ($101 × 0.5 × 20 = $1010).

obtain information about particular bank municipal securities dealers, 
and to develop statistical information about bank municipal securities 
dealers.
