SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OCC is proposing to extend OMB approval of the following information collection: Title: Disclosure and Reporting of CRA-Related Agreements (12 CFR part 35). OMB Control No.: 1557–0219. Description: This submission covers an existing regulation and involves no change to the regulation, the information collection requirements, or the burden estimates. The OCC requests only that OMB extend its approval of the information collection. National banks and their affiliates (hereinafter referred to collectively as national banks) occasionally enter into agreements with nongovernmental entities or persons (NGEPs) that are related to national banks’ responsibilities under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). Section 48 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act) requires the disclosure of certain of these agreements, and imposes reporting requirements on national banks and other insured depository institutions (IDIs), their affiliates, and NGEPs. 12 U.S.C. 1831y. As mandated by the FDI Act, the OCC, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board, and the Office of Thrift Supervision issued regulations to implement these disclosure and reporting requirements. The reporting provisions of these regulations constitute collections of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The regulation issued by the OCC is codified at 12 CFR part 35, the collections of information contained in that regulation are known as ‘‘CRA Sunshine.’’ Section 48 of the FDI Act applies to written agreements that: (1) Are made in fulfillment of the CRA, (2) involve funds or other resources of an IDI or affiliate with an aggregate value of more than $10,000 in a year, or loans with an aggregate principal value of more than $50,000 in a year, and (3) are entered PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 into by an IDI or affiliate of an IDI and an NGEP. 12 U.S.C. 1831y(e). The parties to a covered agreement must make the agreement available to the public and the appropriate agency. The parties also must file a report annually with the appropriate agency concerning the disbursement, receipt, and use of funds or other resources under the agreement. The collections of information in CRA Sunshine implement these statutorily mandated disclosure and reporting requirements. 12 U.S.C. 1831y(a)–(c). The parties to the agreement may request confidential treatment of proprietary and confidential information in an agreement or annual report. 12 CFR 35.8. 12 U.S.C. 1831y(h)(2)(A). The information collections are found in 12 CFR 35.4(b); 35.6(b)(1); 35.6(c)(1); 35.6(d)(1)(i) and (ii); 35.6(d)(2); 35.7(b); and 35.7(f)(2)(ii). Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Individuals; businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 573. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,161. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,206. The OCC issued a 60-day Federal Register notice on January 22, 2009. 75 FR 3785.
