minimize the burden of the collection of information on the 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology when appropriate; and (4) whether 
the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance 
of the functions of the Board, including whether the collection has 
practical utility. Submitted comments will be summarized and included

Act, Public Law 104-88, 109 Stat. 803 (1995). The required content of a
