Market participants suggested additional attention should be accorded to the volume of disputes with clients and the degree to which clients seek through negotiation to elicit more favorable terms. Feedback from these discussions also led to the elimination or consolidation of questions regarding the credit terms applicable to other dealers, or to the funding of Treasury securities, as these terms do not vary markedly across the normal credit cycle. Adoption of a more granular classification of ‘‘clients by type’’ was recommended in order to draw a clearer distinction between hedge funds and other types of institutional investors, such as insurance companies and pension funds. Finally, in several instances alternate language was suggested, including (1) using the term vendor financing to describe a situation where a dealer provides more favorable terms for funding securities in which it has played an underwriting role and (2) eliminating words in one possible response (to a survey question) that might be construed as reflecting adversely on a dealer’s own access to funding.

Background and Brief Description In the United States, legal authority for the registration of vital events, i.e., births, deaths, marriages, divorces, fetal deaths, and induced terminations of pregnancy, resides individually with the States (as well as cities in the case of New York City and Washington, DC) and Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. These governmental entities are the full legal proprietors of vital records and the information contained therein. As a result of this State authority, the collection of registration-based vital statistics at the national level, referred to as the U.S. National Vital Statistics System (NVSS), depends on a cooperative relationship between the States and the Federal government. This data collection, authorized by 42 U.S.C. 242k, has been carried out by NCHS since it was created in 1960. NCHS assists in achieving the comparability needed for combining data from all States into national statistics, by conducting a training program for State and local vital statistics staff to assist in developing expertise in all aspects of vital registration and vital statistics. The training offered under this program includes courses for registration staff, statisticians, and coding specialists, all designed to bring about a high degree of uniformity and quality in the data provided by the States. This training program is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 242b, section 304(a). In order to offer the types of training that would be most useful to vital registration staff members, NCHS requests information from State and local vital registration officials about their projected needs for training. NCHS also asks individual candidates for training to submit an application form containing name, address, occupation, work experience, education, and previous training. These data enable NCHS to determine those individuals whose needs can best be met through the available training resources. NCHS is requesting 3 years of OMB clearance for this project. There is no cost to respondents in providing these data other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 44. E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1
