Confidential and proprietary information collected for the purposes of the Loan Participation Renewal notice 12 CFR 223.15(b)(4) may be protected under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)). Section (b)(4) exempts information deemed competitively sensitive from disclosure and Section (b)(8) exempts information ‘‘contained in or related to examination, operating, or condition reports prepared by, on behalf of, or for the use of an agency responsible for the regulation or supervision of financial institutions.’’ Abstract: On December 12, 2002, the Federal Reserve published a Federal Register notice 1 adopting Reg W to implement sections 23A and 23B. The Regulation was effective April 1, 2003. The Board issued Reg W for several reasons. First, the regulatory framework established by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act 2 emphasizes the importance of sections 23A and 23B as a means to protect depository institutions from losses in transactions with affiliates. Second, adoption of a comprehensive rule simplified the interpretation and application of sections 23A and 23B, ensured that the statute is consistently interpreted and applied, and minimized burden on banking organizations to the extent consistent with the statute’s goals. Third, issuing a comprehensive rule allowed the public an opportunity to comment on Federal Reserve interpretations of sections 23A and 23B. Current Actions: On March 4, 2009, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (74 FR 9401) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the FR H–4, FR 2064, RFP/RFPQ, and Reg W. The comment period for this notice expired on May 4, 2009. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 11, 2009. Jennifer J. Johnson, Secretary of the Board. [FR Doc. E9–11355 Filed 5–14–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6210–01–P 1 (67 FR 76603).
