The Western Branch extends between milepost 17.54 at the TexasOklahoma State line near Burkburnett, Tex., and milepost 78.56 at Altus, Okla. WTJR has leased and operated the Western Branch since 1991.1 This transaction is related to a concurrently filed notice of exemption in Wichita, Tillman & Jackson Railway Company—Lease Renewal Exemption— Union Pacific Railroad Company, FD 35452, in which WTJR seeks to renew its lease of approximately 40.48 miles of rail line consisting of two unconnected segments in Texas and Oklahoma. WTJR states that it and ODOT will shortly execute a lease renewal agreement renewing the 1991 Track Lease and Operating Agreement. The term of the lease renewal is 20 years, and the lease renewal will also include other changes beyond the extension of the lease term. WTJR certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of the transaction will not result in WTJR becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier and further certifies that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 million. The transaction is scheduled to be consummated on or after January 12, 2011. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to reopen the proceeding to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.

In this notice, OTS is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection. Title of Proposal: Notice of Hiring or Indemnifying Senior Executive Officers or Directors. OMB Number: 1550–0047. Form Numbers: 1606; 1624. Description: 12 U.S.C. 1831i requires OTS to make a determination as to the hiring or appointment of senior executive officers or directors at savings institutions or thrift holding companies. The OTS’s determination must be based upon an evaluation of the individual’s competence, experience, character, and integrity. The information required by the collection is necessary to make this determination. Without this information, the OTS cannot accomplish the statutory requirement designed to protect the interests of the Deposit Insurance Fund. The OTS has delegated the Regional Director, or his designee, at each Regional Office the authority to approve or deny these requests. They evaluate the individual’s educational and professional experience to determine competence in the proposed position. An evaluation of the individual’s proprietary interests identifies conflicts of interest that may render such person unsuitable for the position. Finally, information such as an individual’s criminal offenses, lawsuits, and related disclosures enable further evaluation of the individual’s integrity and character. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 120. Estimated Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Burden: 280 hours. Dated: December 17, 2010. Ira L. Mills, Paperwork Clearance Officer, Office of Chief Counsel, Office of Thrift Supervision.
