Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 188 / Friday, September 26, 2008 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Source Suppliers and Producers Association (ISSPA), both dated September 19, 2008, for extension of the comment period from September 30 to October 30, 2008. Response to Request The request for an extension to the comment period is approved for 15 days. The staff understands that NEI, CRCPD and ISSPA requested an extension of 30 days. However, NRC can not grant the full extension because the comments are needed by mid-October for development of future NRC actions for Commission consideration by November 2008. Therefore, the staff is approving a 15-day extension to the original public comment period, with the public comment period to end on October 15, 2008. The staff recognizes that the public and other stakeholder comments may be impacted by the discussions that will occur during the two-day public meeting which concludes on September 30, 2008, and therefore agrees to extend the comment period an additional 15 days. Members of the public are invited and encouraged to submit comments electronically to http:// www.regulations.gov. Search on Docket ID: [NRC–2008–0419] and follow the instructions for submitting comments.

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 an extension without change of a currently approved collection of information: 3220–0038, Medical Reports. 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.

The requirements for establishment of disability and proof of continuance of disability are prescribed in 20 CFR 220. Under Sections 2(c)(1)(ii)(c) and 2(d)(1)(ii) of the RRA, annuities are also payable to qualified spouses and widow(ers), respectively, who have a qualified child who is under a disability which began before age 22. Annuities are also payable to surviving children on the basis of disability under Section 2(d)(1)(iii)(C) if the child’s disability began before age 22 and to widow(ers) on the basis of disability under section 2(d)(1) (i)(B). To meet the disability standard, the RRA provides that individuals must have a permanent physical or mental condition such that they are unable to engage in any regular employment. Under section 2(d)(1)(v) of the RRA, annuities are also payable to remarried and surviving divorced spouses on the basis of, inter alia, disability or having a qualified disabled child in care. However, the disability standard in these cases is that found in the Social Security Act. That is, individuals must be able to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment. The RRB also determines entitlement to a period of early disability and early Medicare entitlement for qualified claimants in accordance with Section 216 of the Social Security Act. When making disability determinations, the RRB needs evidence from acceptable medical sources. The RRB currently utilizes Forms G–3EMP, Report of Medical Condition by Employer; G–197, Authorization to Release Medical Information, G–250, Medical Assessment; G–250a, Medical Assessment of Residual Functional Capacity; G–260, Report of Seizure Disorder; RL–11b, Disclosure of Hospital Medical Records; RL–11d, Disclosure of Medical Records from a State Agency; and RL–250, Request for Medical Assessment, to obtain the necessary medical evidence. The RRB proposes no changes to the information collection. Completion of the forms is voluntary. One response is requested of each respondent.

Pursuant to section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Exchange Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on September 16, 2008, the Chicago 1 15 2 17 Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘CBOE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to change CBOE Stock Exchange (‘‘CBSX’’) Rule 51.8, to adopt a CBSX-Only order. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site (http://www.cboe.com), at the Office of the Secretary, CBOE and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:07 Sep 25, 2008 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of this proposed rule change is to revise CBOE Stock Exchange (‘‘CBSX’’) Rule 51.8 to adopt a CBSX-Only order type. A CBSX-only order is an order to buy or sell that is to be executed in whole or in part on CBSX, and the portion not so executed is to be cancelled, without routing the order to another market center or market participant, and without being ‘‘flashed’’ at the NBBO price to CBSX Traders pursuant to Rule 52.6 when CBSX is not at the NBBO and the order is marketable against the NBBO. Thus, a CBSX-Only order would either immediately execute on CBSX, get booked on CBSX (provided it does not cause a locked or crossed market), or cancel. Many exchanges have similar order-types (e.g. NSX Rule 11.11(c)(6)). 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b) of the Act 3 in general and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(5) of the Act 4 in particular in that, by offering users greater control over order routing, it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, serve to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system. 3 15 4 15 Jkt 214001 PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f(b).

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 an extension without change of a currently approved collection 
of information: 3220-0038, Medical Reports. 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.
    Under Sections 2(a)(1)(iv), 2(a)(2) and 2(a)(3) of the Railroad 
Retirement Act (RRA), annuities are payable to qualified railroad 
employees whose physical or mental condition is such that they are 
unable to (1) work in their regular occupation (occupational 
disability); or (2) work at all (permanent total disability). The 
requirements for establishment of disability and proof of continuance 
of disability are prescribed in 20 CFR 220.
    Under Sections 2(c)(1)(ii)(c) and 2(d)(1)(ii) of the RRA, annuities 
are also payable to qualified spouses and widow(ers), respectively, who 
have a qualified child who is under a disability which began before age 
22. Annuities are also payable to surviving children on the basis of 
disability under Section 2(d)(1)(iii)(C) if the child's disability 
began before age 22 and to widow(ers) on the basis of disability under 
section 2(d)(1) (i)(B). To meet the disability standard, the RRA 
provides that individuals must have a permanent physical or mental 
condition such that they are unable to engage in any regular 
employment.
    Under section 2(d)(1)(v) of the RRA, annuities are also payable to 
remarried and surviving divorced spouses on the basis of, inter alia, 
disability or having a qualified disabled child in care. However, the 
disability standard in these cases is that found in the Social Security 
Act. That is, individuals must be able to engage in any substantial 
gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or 
mental impairment. The RRB also determines entitlement to a period of 
early disability and early Medicare entitlement for qualified claimants 
in accordance with Section 216 of the Social Security Act.
    When making disability determinations, the RRB needs evidence from 
acceptable medical sources. The RRB currently utilizes Forms G-3EMP, 
Report of Medical Condition by Employer; G-197, Authorization to 
Release Medical Information, G-250, Medical Assessment; G-250a, Medical 
Assessment of Residual Functional Capacity; G-260, Report of Seizure 
Disorder; RL-11b, Disclosure of Hospital Medical Records; RL-11d, 
Disclosure of Medical Records from a State Agency; and RL-250, Request 
for Medical Assessment, to obtain the necessary medical evidence. The 
RRB proposes no changes to the information collection. Completion of 
the forms is voluntary. One response is requested of each respondent.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (73 FR 22183 on April 24,
