The Commission plans to submit this collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for approval. The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy seeks to commence a collection of information. The title of this collection is the Individual Investor Plain English Survey Project. This project will conduct focus groups and telephone surveys of individual investors in SEC registered securities, plus similar surveys of non-investors. The project will seek to gauge the level of individual investor satisfaction with current and potential future SEC-mandated disclosures, to learn whether investors and non-investors believe such disclosures are written in plain English and are reader-friendly, and to ask individual investors how such disclosures might be improved. The Commission will use this information in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of a range of views. The SEC intends to hire a professional survey firm to conduct the focus groups and telephone surveys. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden of this collection of information is estimated to be less than 1,000 burden hours. Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 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 collected; and (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.

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for approval of extension of the existing collection of information provided for in the following rule: Rule 15Ba2–5 (17 CFR 240.15Ba2–5). On July 7, 1975, effective July 16, 1975 (see 41 FR 28948, July 14, 1975), the Commission adopted Rule 15Ba2–5 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) to permit a duly-appointed fiduciary to assume immediate responsibility for the operation of a municipal securities dealer’s business. Without the rule, the fiduciary would not be able to assume operation until it registered as a municipal securities dealer. Under the rule, the registration of a municipal securities dealer is deemed to be the registration of any executor, administrator, guardian, conservator, assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver, trustee in insolvency or bankruptcy, or other fiduciary, appointed or qualified by order, judgment, or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction to continue the business of such municipal securities dealer, provided that such fiduciary files with the Commission, within 30 days after entering upon the performance of his duties, a statement setting forth as to such fiduciary substantially the same information required by Form MSD or Form BD. The statement is necessary to ensure that the Commission and the public have adequate information about the fiduciary. There is approximately 1 respondent per year that requires an aggregate total of 4 hours to comply with this rule. This respondent makes an estimated 1 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:58 Nov 01, 2007 Jkt 214001 annual response. Each response takes approximately 4 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 4 burden hours. The approximate cost per hour is $20, resulting in a total cost of compliance for the respondent of approximately $80 (i.e., 4 hours × $20). An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Comments should be directed to (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or by sending an e-mail to: Alexander_T._Hunt@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.
