At the end of the comment period, the proposed information collections, along with an analysis of comments and recommendations received, will be submitted to the Board for final approval under OMB delegated authority. Comments are invited on the following: a.

Respondents would be required to submit all items of the proposed FR 2320 report, both financial and nonfinancial, electronically using the Federal Reserve’s Internet Electronic Submission (IESUB) application.

Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Implementation of 
the Following Report

    Report title: Quarterly Savings and Loan Holding Company Report.
    Agency form number: FR 2320.
    OMB control number: 7100--to be assigned.
    Frequency: Quarterly.
    Reporters: Top and lower-tier savings and loan holding companies 
(SLHCs).
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 400 hours.
    Estimated average hours per response: 2.5 hours.
    Number of respondents: 40.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory pursuant to section 312 of the Dodd-Frank Act; and section 10 
of the Home Owners' Loan Act (HOLA), as amended by section 369 of the 
Dodd-Frank Act authorizing the Federal Reserve to

[[Page 70147]]

collect information on the FR 2320. Public Law 111-203, Sec.  312(b)(1) 
and 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2), as amended by Public Law 111-201, Sec.  
369(8).
    The Federal Reserve has determined that a few of the items that the 
Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) had deemed confidential--
specifically, the FR 2320 counterparts to items HC850, HC855, and HC860 
on Schedule HC of the Thrift Financial Report (TFR; OMB No. 1557-
0255)--may be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of the 
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    With regard to the remaining items the OTS had deemed confidential 
on Schedule HC, the SLHC may request, in writing, confidential 
treatment of such information under one or more of the exemptions in 
FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b). All such requests for confidential treatment 
would be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and in response to a specific 
request for disclosure.
    Current actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to implement the 
Quarterly Savings and Loan Holding Company Report (FR 2320) from SLHCs 
exempt from initially filing Federal Reserve regulatory reports.\1\ 
These data would be the same as data previously collected on Schedule 
HC of the TFR.\2\ Title III of the Dodd-Frank Act transferred all 
former OTS authorities (including rulemaking) related to SLHCs to the 
Federal Reserve on July 21, 2011. Consequently, the Federal Reserve 
became responsible for the consolidated supervision of SLHCs beginning 
July 21, 2011. These data would assist the Federal Reserve in the 
evaluation of a diversified holding company and in determining whether 
an SLHC is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Data 
collected with the proposed FR 2320 would contribute to the analyses of 
the overall financial condition of exempt SLHCs to ensure safe and 
sound operations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Under the current reporting proposal for SLHCs (76 FR 
53129), an exempt SLHC meets one of the following criteria (1) 
formed under section 10(c)(9)(C) of the Home Owners' Loan Act (HOLA) 
whose saving association subsidiaries' consolidated assets make up 
less than 5 percent of the total consolidated assets of the SLHCs, 
or (2) its top-tier holding company is an insurance company that 
only prepares financial statements using statutory accounting 
principles. The definition of an exempt SLHC is subject to change, 
based on comments received from the public during the comment 
period.
    \2\ Early in 2011, the Office of the Comptroller of the 
Currency, the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation, and the Office of Thrift Supervision issued notice of 
the elimination of the TFR after the December 31, 2011, report date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The proposed new FR 2320 would collect parent only and consolidated 
financial data and organizational structure data. The new report would 
be effective as of the March 31, 2012, report date. The proposed FR 
2320 report would generally be filed by the top-tier SLHCs. However, in 
situations where the top-tier SLHC is not the direct owner of the 
thrift or does not control the thrift, a lower tier SLHC may be 
required to file instead of the top-tier SLHC. In addition, lower tier 
SLHCs may voluntarily file Schedule HC or may be required to file in 
addition to the top-tier for safety and soundness purposes.
    The proposed new report would be submitted quarterly as of the end 
of March, June, September, and December. If a SLHC has a quarter-end 
other than a calendar quarter-end, data from the fiscal quarter ending 
within the calendar quarter may be used to complete the FR 2320.\3\ The 
filing deadline would be 45 calendar days after the March 31, June 30, 
September 30, and December 31 as-of date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ For example, if the SLHC's fiscal year end is October, its 
fiscal quarter-ends are January, April, July, and October. 
Therefore, the fiscal quarter ending January 31 would be reported 
for the March 31 calendar quarter for the FR 2320.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Respondents would be required to submit all items of the proposed 
FR 2320 report, both financial and non-financial, electronically using 
the Federal Reserve's Internet Electronic Submission (IESUB) 
application. The IESUB application would validate the report data for 
mathematical and logical consistency, calculate derived items, and 
provide the reporting institution with a confirmation receipt of its 
submission. Any respondent interested in learning more about the IESUB 
application would be directed to the Federal Reserve Bank Services--
Reporting Central Web site and their Federal Reserve Bank contact 
(http://www.frbservices.org/centralbank/reportingcentral/index.html).
    Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, without revision, of the following report:
    Report title: Bank Holding Company Report of Insured Depository 
Institutions' Section 23A Transactions with Affiliates.
    Agency form number: FR Y-8.
    OMB control number: 7100-0126.
    Frequency: Quarterly.
    Reporters: Top-tier bank holding companies (BHCs), including 
financial holding companies (FHCs), for all insured depository 
institutions that are owned by the BHC and by foreign banking 
organizations (FBOs) that directly own a U.S. subsidiary bank.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: Institutions with covered 
transactions, 31,294 hours; Institutions without covered transactions, 
18,204 hours.
    Estimated average hours per response: Institutions with covered 
transactions, 7.8 hours; Institutions without covered transactions, 1 
hour.
    Number of respondents: Institutions with covered transactions, 
1,003; Institutions without covered transactions, 4,551.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory pursuant to section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 
U.S.C. 1844(c)) and section 225.5(b) of Regulation Y (12 CFR 225.5(b)). 
The data are confidential pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Section (b)(4) exempts information deemed 
competitively sensitive from disclosure.
    Abstract: This reporting form collects information on transactions 
between an insured depository institution and its affiliates that are 
subject to section 23A of the Federal Reserve Act. The primary purpose 
of the data is to enhance the Federal Reserve's ability to monitor bank 
exposures to affiliates and to ensure banks' compliance with section 
23A of the Federal Reserve Act. Section 23A of the Federal Reserve Act 
is one of the most important statutes on limiting exposures to 
individual institutions and protecting against the expansion of the 
federal safety net.
