    Frequency: FR 1373a, survey: One or two times per year; discussion 
groups: Two times a year. FR 1373b, small-panel survey: Two times a 
year; large-panel survey, one time per year.
    Reporters: FR 1373a: Community-based educators, key stakeholders, 
and other educators who have previously requested consumer education 
materials from the Federal Reserve. FR 1373b: Current subscribers of 
the publications being surveyed.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: FR 1373a: Survey, 375 hours;

    Number of respondents: FR 1373a: Survey, 500; panel discussion, 20. 
FR 1373b: Small-panel, 20; large-panel, 200.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
voluntary. The FR 1373a study is authorized pursuant to section 18(f) 
of the Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act (15 U.S.C. 57a(f)). The 
FR 1373b study is authorized pursuant to the Federal Reserve Act (12 
U.S.C. 248(i)). The specific information collected is not considered 
confidential.
    Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses the FR 1373a to: (1) Conduct 
periodic reviews and evaluations of the consumer education materials 
and (2) develop and evaluate consumer education materials under 
consideration for distribution. The FR 1373b data help the Federal 
Reserve determine if it should continue to issue certain publications

    2. Report title: Interagency Bank Merger Act Application.

invasion of personal privacy or would otherwise qualify for an 
exemption under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and

section to exclude certain trust or fiduciary accounts in determining 
its compliance with the chiefly compensated test in section 721 to 
maintain certain records relating to the excluded accounts. Section 741 
requires a bank relying on the exemption provided by that section to 
provide customers with a prospectus for the money market fund 
securities, not later than the time the customer authorizes the bank to 
effect the transaction in such securities, if the class of series of 
securities are not no-load.
