By the Commission. Ruth Ann Abrams, Acting Secretary. [FR Doc. 2011–11022 Filed 5–2–11; 4:15 pm] BILLING CODE 7710–FW–P POSTAL REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket No. MT2009–4; Order No. 720] Postal Service Market Test AGENCY: ACTION: Postal Regulatory Commission. Notice. The Commission is noticing a recently-filed Postal Service motion for a temporary extension of the Collaborative Logistics experimental market test, pending Commission action on anticipated request for permanent status. This document grants a onemonth extension, appoints a public representative, and invites public comments. SUMMARY: DATES: Comment deadline: May 16, 2011. Submit comments electronically via the Commission’s Filing Online system at https:// www.prc.gov. Those who cannot submit comments electronically should contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section by telephone for advice on filing alternatives. ADDRESSES: jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen L. Sharfman, General Counsel, 202–789–6820 or stephen.sharfman@prc.gov. On April 26, 2011, the United States Postal Service moved to temporarily extend its Collaborative Logistics market test SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:45 May 03, 2011 Jkt 223001 under 39 U.S.C. 3641(d).1 The Commission originally allowed a 2-year market test on May 7, 2009.2 The impending expiration of the 2-year interval has prompted the Postal Service to request that the Commission grant an extension of its experimental product. A temporary extension is being sought until such time as the Commission rules on a Postal Service request to make the Collaborative Logistics offering a permanent one. Motion at 2. The Postal Service hopes to file such a request by September 2011. The Postal Service recognizes that 39 U.S.C. 3641(d)(1) provides that ‘‘a market test shall not exceed 24 months.’’ Id. However, it suggests that the statute also ‘‘clearly envisions cases where market tests could be extended…under section 3641(d)(2).’’ Id. While the Postal Service recognizes that section 3641(d)(2) requires requests for extension of market tests to be submitted 60 days before the completion of the maximum 2-year test period, and its requested extension does not satisfy that provision precisely, it seeks a waiver to enable the Postal Service to complete the smooth transitioning of the management of this product to a new functional group. Id. at 1. The Postal Service contends an extension ‘‘would not prejudice any party.’’ Id. at 2. The Commission will grant a 1-month extension of this market test, through June 6, 2011, to develop a record on which to evaluate the Motion. The Postal Service is requested to submit additional information to explain more fully why it does not plan to file for permanent authority for 4 more months, and to provide a specific description of the justification for coordinating the test during that period. This information should be filed by May 5, 2011. Interested persons may submit comments on the Postal Service’s Motion for extension. These comments are due no later than May 16, 2011. The Commission appoints Richard A. Oliver to serve as successor to the prior Public Representative in this docket. It is ordered: 1. The Commission grants an extension until June 6, 2011, to the expiration date of the market test of Collaborative Logistics. 2. Pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 505, Richard A. Oliver is appointed to serve as officer of the Commission (Public 1 Motion of the United States Postal Service for Temporary Extension of Collaborative Logistics Market Test, April 26, 2011 (Motion). 2 Order No. 211, Order Concerning Collaborative Logistics Market Test, May 7, 2009. PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25381 Representative) to represent the interests of the general public in this proceeding. 3. The Postal Service shall supplement its Motion no later than May 5, 2011, as described in the body of this order. 4. Comments by interested persons are due no later than May 16, 2011. 5. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this order in the Federal Register. By the Commission. Shoshana M. Grove, Secretary.

Rule 15b6–1 and Form BDW; OMB Control No. 3235–0018; SEC File No. 270–17. Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget a request to revise the collection of information discussed below. The Code of Federal Regulations citation to this collection of information is 17 CFR 240.15b6–1. Registered broker-dealers use Form BDW (17 CFR 249.501a) to withdraw from registration with the Commission, the self-regulatory organizations, and the states. On average, the Commission estimates that it would take a brokerdealer approximately one hour to complete and file a Form BDW to withdraw from Commission registration as required by Rule 15b6–1. The Commission estimates that approximately 515 broker-dealers withdraw from Commission registration annually 1 and, therefore, file a Form BDW via the Internet with Web CRD, a computer system operated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. that maintains 1 This estimate is based on Form BDW data collected over the past three years. In fiscal year (from 10/1 through 9/30) 2008, 503 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. In fiscal year 2009, 533 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. In fiscal year 2010, 510 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. (503 + 533 + 510)/3 = 515. E:\FR\FM\04MYN1.SGM 04MYN1
