This path includes (1) switchyard circuit breakers that connect to the offsite power system (i.e., grid), (2) power transformers, (3) intervening overhead or underground circuits (i.e., cables, buses and connections, transmission conductors and connections, insulators, disconnect switches, and associated components), (4) circuits between the circuit breakers and power transformers, (5) circuits between the power transformers and onsite electrical distribution system, and (6) control circuit cables and connections and structures associated with components in the recovery path. The SBO recovery path scoping boundary ends at the line side of the switchyard breaker(s) at transmission system voltage. For the switchyard breakers, bolted connections to the switchyard bus and structural components supporting the breakers are within the scope of license renewal. The control circuit cables and its connections for the switchyard breakers are not within the scope of license renewal. Figures of different configurations of the SBO offsite power recovery path that are acceptable to the staff and meet the license renewal scoping requirements in accordance with 10 CFR 54.4(a)(3) are available via ADAMS at Accession No. ML080520620. The ownership of switchyard components is not a factor in ensuring that the effects of aging will be adequately managed for components and structures needed for recovering the offsite circuits from an SBO event consistent with the requirements in 10 CFR 54.4, ‘‘Scope,’’ and 10 CFR 54.21, ‘‘Contents of Application—Technical Information.’’ The staff recognizes that there are interface and control agreements between the licensee and transmission system operator. These agreements do not preclude the applicant from complying with requirements specified in 10 CFR 54.4 and 10 CFR 54.21. Designating the appropriate offsite power system long-lived passive structures and components that are part of this circuit path as subject to an aging management review will ensure the maintenance of the bases underlying the SBO requirements over the period of the extended license. This is consistent with the Commission’s expectations in including the SBO event under 10 CFR 54.4(a)(3) of the license renewal rule. [FR Doc.

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 a request for approval of extension of the existing collection of information provided for in the following rule: Rule 19b–7 (17 CFR 240.19b–7). The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’) provides a framework for self-regulation under which various entities involved in the securities business, including national securities exchanges and national securities associations (collectively, self-regulatory organizations or ‘‘SROs’’), have primary responsibility for regulating their members or participants. The role of the Commission in this framework is primarily one of oversight: the Exchange Act charges the Commission with supervising the SROs and assuring that PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 each complies with and advances the policies of the Exchange Act. The Exchange Act was amended by the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (‘‘CFMA’’). Prior to the CFMA, federal law did not allow the trading of futures on individual stocks or on narrow-based stock indexes (collectively, ‘‘security futures products’’). The CFMA removed this restriction and provides that trading in security futures products would be regulated jointly by the Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’). The Exchange Act requires all SROs to submit to the SEC any proposals to amend, add, or delete any of their rules. Certain entities (Security Futures Product Exchanges) would be national securities exchanges only because they trade security futures products. Similarly, certain entities (Limited Purpose National Securities Associations) would be national securities associations only because their members trade security futures products. The Exchange Act, as amended by the CFMA, established a procedure for Security Futures Product Exchanges and Limited Purpose National Securities Associations to provide notice of proposed rule changes relating to certain matters.1 Rule 19b–7 and Form 19b–7 (17 CFR 249.822) implemented this procedure. The collection of information is designed to provide the Commission with the information necessary to determine, as required by the Act, whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules thereunder. The information is used to determine if the proposed rule change should remain in affect or be abrogated. The respondents to the collection of information are SROs. Five respondents file an average total of 12 responses per year. Each response takes approximately 17.25 hours to complete, which corresponds to an estimated annual response burden of 207 (12 responses × 17.25 hours) hours. The average cost per response is approximately $4,607.25 (17.25 hours multiplied by an average hourly rate of $267.09). The resultant total related cost of compliance for these respondents is approximately $55,287 per year (12 responses × $4,607.25 per response). 1These matters are higher margin levels, fraud or manipulation, recordkeeping, reporting, listing standards, or decimal pricing for security futures products; sales practices for security futures products for persons who effect transactions in security futures products; or rules effectuating the obligation of Security Futures Product Exchanges and Limited Purpose National Securities Associations to enforce the securities laws.

RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD


Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 
an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to 
request a revision to a currently approved collection of information: 
3220-0195, Statement Regarding Contributions and Support of Children. 
Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. 
Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate 
paperwork burdens.
    The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information 
to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance 
the quality, utility and clarity of the information that is the subject 
of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology. Comments to RRB or OIRA must 
contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of 
your comments, it is best if RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days 
of publication date.
    Section 2(d)(4) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), provides, in 
part, that a child is deemed dependent if the conditions set forth in 
Section 202(d)(3), (4) and (9) of the Social Security Act are met. 
Section 202(d)(4) of the Social Security Act, as amended by Public Law 
104-121, requires as a condition of dependency, that a child receives 
one-half of his or her support from the stepparent. This dependency 
impacts

[[Page 13262]]

upon the entitlement of a spouse or survivor of an employee whose 
entitlement is based upon having a stepchild of the employee in care, 
or on an individual seeking a child's annuity as a stepchild of an 
employee. Therefore, depending on the employee for at least one-half 
support is a condition affecting eligibility for increasing an employee 
or spouse annuity under the social security overall minimum provisions 
on the basis of the presence of a dependent child, the employee's 
natural child in limited situations, adopted children, stepchildren, 
grandchildren and step-grandchildren and equitably adopted children. 
The regulations outlining child support and dependency requirements are 
prescribed in 20 CFR 222.50-57.
    In order to correctly determine if an applicant is entitled to a 
child's annuity based on actual dependency, the RRB uses Form G-139, 
Statement Regarding Contributions and Support of Children, to obtain 
financial information needed to make a comparison between the amount of 
support received from the railroad employee and the amount received 
from other sources. Completion is required to obtain a benefit. One 
response is required of each respondent.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (73 FR 215 on January 2, 2008) required by 44 
U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.

Information Collection Request (ICR)

    Title: Statement Regarding Contributions and Support of Children.
    OMB Control Number: OMB 3220-0195.
    Form(s) submitted: G-139.
    Type of request: Extension without change of a currently approved 
collection.
    Affected public: Individuals or Households.
    Abstract: Dependency on the employee for at least one-half support 
is a condition for increasing an employee or spouse annuity under the 
social security overall minimum provisions on the basis of the presence 
of a dependent child, the employee's natural child in limited 
situations, adopted children, stepchildren, grandchildren, and step-
grandchildren. The information collected solicits financial information 
needed to determine entitlement to a child's annuity based on actual 
dependency.
    Changes Proposed: The RRB proposes no changed to Form G-139.
    The burden estimate for the ICR is as follows:
    Estimated Completion Time for Form(s): Completion time for Form G-
139 is estimated at 60 minutes.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 500.
    Total annual responses: 500.
    Total annual reporting hours: 500.
    Additional Information or Comments: Copies of the forms and 
supporting documents can be obtained from Charles Mierzwa, the agency 
clearance officer (312-751-3363) or Charles.Mierzwa@rrb.gov.
    Comments regarding the information collection should be addressed 
to Ronald J. Hodapp, Railroad Retirement Board, 844 North Rush Street, 
Chicago, Illinois 60611-2092 or Ronald.Hodapp@rrb.gov and to the OMB
