Universal Postal Service Obligation, 29792-29793 [E8-11453]

Download as PDF 29792 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Notices rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Availability of Electric Power Sources,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1195, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. This draft regulatory guide is revision 1 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.93, ‘‘Availability of Electric Power Sources,’’ dated December 1974. An earlier revision 1 to RG 1.93 was issued in October 2006 as DG–1153. Subsequent to its publication the staff received numerous comments from the public and members of the NRC staff. As a result, significant changes were made to the original draft guide (DG–1153). These changes necessitated reissuing revision 1 of RG 1.93 as a new DG for public comment. This guide describes the operating procedures and restrictions that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for implementation when the available electric power sources are less than the limiting conditions for operation. This guide is applicable to single and multiunit plants. These practices and methods are the result of NRC review of operating experience and they reflect the latest methods and approaches acceptable to the NRC staff. If future information results in alternative methods, the NRC staff will review such methods to determine their acceptability. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1195. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data, and should mention DG–1195 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).

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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:03 May 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. Information collected and information prepared pursuant to Regulation S–X focus on the form and content of, and requirements for, financial statements filed with periodic reports and in connection with the offer and sale of securities. Investors need reasonably current financial statements to make informed investment and voting decisions. The potential respondents include all entities that file registration statements or reports pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a, et seq.), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a, et seq.) or the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1, et seq.). Regulation S–X specifies the form and content of financial statements when those financial statements are required to be filed by other rules and forms under the federal securities laws. Compliance burdens associated with the financial statements are assigned to the rule or form that directly requires the financial statements to be filed, not to Regulation S–X. Instead, an estimated burden of one hour traditionally has been assigned to Regulation S–X for incidental reading of the regulation. The estimated average burden hours are solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of SEC rules or forms. Recordkeeping retention periods are based on the disclosure required by various forms and rules other than Regulation S–X. In general, balance sheets for the preceding two fiscal years, income and cash flow statements for the preceding three fiscal years, and condensed quarterly financial statements must be filed with the Commission. Five-year summary financial information is required to be disclosed by some larger registrants. Filing financial statements, when required by the governing rule or form, is mandatory. Because these statements are provided for the purpose of disseminating information to the securities markets, they are not kept confidential. 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. General comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29793 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 send an email to: Alexander_T._Hunt@omb.eop.gov, and (ii) R.
