The information in the FR G–1 and FR G–4 is given confidential treatment under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. § § 552(b)(4) and (6)). The FR G–2 does not contain confidential information. The FR G–3, FR T–4, and FR U–1 are not submitted to the Federal Reserve and, as such, no issue of confidentiality arises. Abstract: The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 authorizes the Federal Reserve to regulate securities credit extended by brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders. The purpose statements, FR T– 4, FR U–1, and FR G–3, are recordkeeping requirements for brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:37 Dec 20, 2007 Jkt 214001 respectively, to document the purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. Margin stock is defined as (1) stocks that are registered on a national securities exchange or any over-the-counter security designated for trading in the National Market System, (2) debt securities (bonds) that are convertible into margin stock, and (3) shares of most mutual funds. Lenders other than brokers and dealers and banks must register and deregister with the Federal Reserve using the FR G–1 and FR G–2, respectively, and they must file an annual report (FR G–4) while registered. The Federal Reserve uses the data to identify lenders subject to Regulation U, to verify their compliance with the regulation, and to monitor margin credit. 2. Report title: Annual Daylight Overdraft Capital Report for U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks Agency form number: FR 2225 OMB control number: 7100–0216 Frequency: Annual Reporters: Foreign banks with U.S. branches or agencies Annual reporting hours: 54 Estimated average hours per response: 1.0 hour Number of respondents: 54 General description of report: This information collection is required to respond in order to obtain or retain a benefit, i.e., in order for the U.S. branch or agency of an FBO to establish and maintain a non-zero net debit cap. The information submitted by respondents is not confidential; however, respondents may request confidential treatment for portions of the report. Data may be considered confidential and exempt from disclosure under section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act if it constitutes commercial or financial information and it would customarily not be released to the public by the person from whom it was obtained (5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(4)). Abstract: This report was implemented in March 1986 as part of the procedures used to administer the Federal Reserve’s Payments System Risk (PSR) policy. A key component of the PSR policy is a limit, or a net debit cap, on an institution’s negative intraday balance in its Reserve Bank account. The Federal Reserve calculates an institution’s net debit cap by applying the multiple associated with the net debit cap category to the institution’s capital. For foreign banking organizations (FBOs), a percentage of the FBO’s capital measure, known as the U.S. capital equivalency, is used to calculate the FBO’s net debit cap. Currently, an FBO with U.S. branches or agencies may voluntarily file the FR PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2225 to provide the Federal Reserve with its capital measure. Because an FBO that files the FR 2225 may be able to use its total capital in determining its U.S capital equivalency measure, which is then used to calculate its net debit cap, an FBO seeking to maximize its daylight overdraft capacity may find it advantageous to file the FR 2225. An FBO that does not file FR 2225 may use an alternative capital measure based on its nonrelated liabilities. 3. Report title: Ongoing Intermittent Survey of Households Agency form number: FR 3016 OMB control number: 7100–0150 Frequency: On occasion Reporters: Households and individuals Annual reporting hours: 683 hours Estimated average hours per response: Division of Research & Statistics, 1.58 minutes; Division of Consumer & Community Affairs, 3 minutes; Other divisions, 5 minutes; and Non-SRC surveys, 90 minutes Number of respondents: 600 General description of report: This information collection is voluntary (12 U.S.C. 225a, 263, and 15 U.S.C. 1691b). No issue of confidentiality normally arises because names and any other characteristics that would permit personal identification of respondents are not reported to the Federal Reserve Board. However, exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)) would exempt this information from disclosure. Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses this voluntary survey to obtain household-based information specifically tailored to the Federal Reserve’s policy, regulatory, and operational responsibilities. Currently, the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center (SRC) includes survey questions on behalf of the Federal Reserve in an addendum to their regular monthly Survey of Consumer Attitudes and Expectations. The SRC conducts the survey by telephone with a sample of 500 households and asks questions of special interest to Federal Reserve Board staff intermittently, as needed. The frequency and content of the questions depend on changing economic, regulatory, and legislative developments. Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, with revision, of the following report: Report title: Report of Net Debit Cap Agency form number: FR 2226 OMB control number: 7100–0217 Frequency: Annual E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 245 / Friday, December 21, 2007 / Notices Reporters: Depository institutions, Edge and agreement corporations, U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks Annual reporting hours: 1,623 hours Estimated average hours per response: 1.0 hour Number of respondents: 1,623 General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(i), 248–1, and 464). The information submitted by respondents for the payments system risk reduction program may be accorded confidential treatment under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. § 552 (b)(4)). In addition, information reported in connection with the second and third resolutions may be protected under Section (b)(8) of FOIA, to the extent that such information is based on the institution’s CAMELS rating, and thus is related to examination reports prepared by, on behalf of, or for the use of an agency responsible for the regulation or supervision of financial institutions (5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(8)). Abstract: Federal Reserve Banks collect these data annually to provide information that is essential for their administration of the Federal Reserve’s Payments System Risk (PSR) policy. The reporting panel includes all financially healthy depository institutions with access to the discount window. The Report of Net Debit Cap comprises three resolutions, which are filed by a depository institution’s board of directors depending on its needs. The first resolution is used to establish a de minimis net debit cap and the second resolution is used to establish a selfassessed net debit cap. The third resolution is used to establish simultaneously a self-assessed net debit cap and maximum daylight overdraft capacity. Copies of the model resolutions are located in Appendix B, of the PSR policy, that can be found at https://www.federalreserve.gov/ paymentsystems/psr/relpol.htm. Current actions: In an effort to streamline the resolutions filed by institutions eligible for maximum daylight overdraft capacity, two former resolutions were combined into one: resolution 3a, collateralized capacity, and resolution 3b, in-transit securities. These resolutions were replaced by the maximum daylight overdraft capacity resolution that combines the board of directors’ approval of the institution’s self-assessment as well as its maximum daylight overdraft capacity level.

    Abstract: The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 authorizes the 
Federal Reserve to regulate securities credit extended by brokers and 
dealers, banks, and other lenders. The purpose statements, FR T-4, FR 
U-1, and FR G-3, are recordkeeping requirements for brokers and 
dealers, banks, and other lenders, respectively, to document the 
purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. Margin stock is defined 
as (1) stocks that are registered on a national securities exchange or 
any over-the-counter security designated for trading in the National 
Market System, (2) debt securities (bonds) that are convertible into 
margin stock, and (3) shares of most mutual funds. Lenders other than 
brokers and dealers and banks must register and deregister with the 
Federal Reserve using the FR G-1 and FR G-2, respectively, and they 
must file an annual report (FR G-4) while registered. The Federal 
Reserve uses the data to identify lenders subject to Regulation U, to 
verify their compliance with the regulation, and to monitor margin 
credit.

required to respond in order to obtain or retain a benefit, i.e., in 
order for the U.S. branch or agency of an FBO to establish and maintain 
a non-zero net debit cap. The information submitted by respondents is 
not confidential; however, respondents may request confidential 
treatment for portions of the report. Data may be considered

information and it would customarily not be released to the public by 
the person from whom it was obtained (5 U.S.C. Sec.  552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: This report was implemented in March 1986 as part of the 
procedures used to administer the Federal Reserve's Payments System 
Risk (PSR) policy. A key component of the PSR policy is a limit, or a 
net debit cap, on an institution's negative intraday balance in its 
Reserve Bank account. The Federal Reserve calculates an institution's 
net debit cap by applying the multiple associated with the net debit 
cap category to the institution's capital. For foreign banking 
organizations (FBOs), a percentage of the FBO's capital measure, known 
as the U.S. capital equivalency, is used to calculate the FBO's net 
debit cap. Currently, an FBO with U.S. branches or agencies may 
voluntarily file the FR 2225 to provide the Federal Reserve with its 
capital measure. Because an FBO that files the FR 2225 may be able to 
use its total capital in determining its U.S capital equivalency 
measure, which is then used to calculate its net debit cap, an FBO 
seeking to maximize its daylight overdraft capacity may find it 
advantageous to file the FR 2225. An FBO that does not file FR 2225 may 
use an alternative capital measure based on its nonrelated liabilities.
    3. Report title: Ongoing Intermittent Survey of Households
    Agency form number: FR 3016
    OMB control number: 7100-0150
    Frequency: On occasion
    Reporters: Households and individuals
    Annual reporting hours: 683 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: Division of Research & 
Statistics, 1.58 minutes; Division of Consumer & Community Affairs, 3 
minutes; Other divisions, 5 minutes; and Non-SRC surveys, 90 minutes
    Number of respondents: 600
    General description of report: This information collection is 
voluntary (12 U.S.C. 225a, 263, and 15 U.S.C. 1691b). No issue of 
confidentiality normally arises because names and any other 
characteristics that would permit personal identification of 
respondents are not reported to the Federal Reserve Board. However, 
exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)) 
would exempt this information from disclosure.
    Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses this voluntary survey to obtain 
household-based information specifically tailored to the Federal 
Reserve's policy, regulatory, and operational responsibilities. 
Currently, the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center (SRC) 
includes survey questions on behalf of the Federal Reserve in an 
addendum to their regular monthly Survey of Consumer Attitudes and 
Expectations. The SRC conducts the survey by telephone with a sample of 
500 households and asks questions of special interest to Federal 
Reserve Board staff intermittently, as needed. The frequency and 
content of the questions depend on changing economic, regulatory, and 
legislative developments.

Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, with revision, of the following report:

    Report title: Report of Net Debit Cap
    Agency form number: FR 2226
    OMB control number: 7100-0217
    Frequency: Annual

[[Page 72727]]

    Reporters: Depository institutions, Edge and agreement 
corporations, U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks
    Annual reporting hours: 1,623 hours
    Estimated average hours per response: 1.0 hour
    Number of respondents: 1,623
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248(i), 248-1, and 464). The information submitted 
by respondents for the payments system risk reduction program may be 
accorded confidential treatment under the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA) (5 U.S.C. Sec.  552 (b)(4)). In addition, information reported 
in connection with the second and third resolutions may be protected 
under Section (b)(8) of FOIA, to the extent that such information is 
based on the institution's CAMELS rating, and thus is related to 
examination reports prepared by, on behalf of, or for the use of an 
agency responsible for the regulation or supervision of financial 
institutions (5 U.S.C. Sec.  552(b)(8)).
    Abstract: Federal Reserve Banks collect these data annually to 
provide information that is essential for their administration of the 
Federal Reserve's Payments System Risk (PSR) policy. The reporting 
panel includes all financially healthy depository institutions with 
access to the discount window. The Report of Net Debit Cap comprises 
three resolutions, which are filed by a depository institution's board 
of directors depending on its needs. The first resolution is used to 
establish a de minimis net debit cap and the second resolution is used 
to establish a self-assessed net debit cap. The third resolution is 
used to establish simultaneously a self-assessed net debit cap and 
maximum daylight overdraft capacity. Copies of the model resolutions 
are located in Appendix B, of the PSR policy, that can be found at 
https://www.federalreserve.gov/paymentsystems/psr/relpol.htm.
    Current actions: In an effort to streamline the resolutions filed 
by institutions eligible for maximum daylight overdraft capacity, two 
former resolutions were combined into one: resolution 3a, 
collateralized capacity, and resolution 3b, in-transit securities. 
These resolutions were replaced by the maximum daylight overdraft 
capacity resolution that combines the board of directors' approval of 
the institution's self-assessment as well as its maximum daylight 
overdraft capacity level.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, December 17, 
2007.

Secretary of the Board.
