Rule 602 of Regulation NMS, Dissemination of Quotations in NMS securities, contains two related collections. The first collection of information is found in Rule 602(a).1 This third-party disclosure requirement obligates each national securities exchange and national securities association to make available to quotation vendors for dissemination to the public the best bid, best offer, and aggregate quotation size for each ‘‘subject security,’’ as defined under the Rule. The second collection of information is found in Rule 602(b).2 1 17 2 CFR 242.602(a). 17 CFR 242.602(b). VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:16 Sep 20, 2013 Jkt 229001 This disclosure requirement obligates any exchange member and over-thecounter (‘‘OTC’’) market maker that is a ‘‘responsible broker or dealer,’’ as defined under the Rule, to communicate to an exchange or association their best bids, best offers, and quotation sizes for subject securities.3 It is anticipated that 17 respondents, consisting of 16 national securities exchanges and one national securities association, will collectively respond approximately 839,944,682,631 times per year pursuant to Rule 602(a) at 18.22 microseconds per response, resulting in a total annual burden of approximately 4,250 hours. It is anticipated that approximately 150 respondents, consisting of OTC market makers, will collectively respond approximately 28,200,000 times per year pursuant to Rule 602(b) at 3 seconds per response, resulting in a total annual burden of approximately 23,500 hours. Thus, the aggregate third-party disclosure burden under Rule 602 is 27,750 hours annually which is comprised of 4,250 hours relating to Rule 602(a) and 23,500 hours relating to Rule 602(b). Compliance with Rule 602 of Regulation NMS is mandatory and the information collected is made available to the public. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The public may view background documentation for this information collection at the following Web site: www.reginfo.gov. Comments should be directed to: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, or by sending an email to: Shagufta_Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Thomas Bayer, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi PavlikSimon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, 3 Under Rule 602(b)(5), electronic communications networks (‘‘ECNs’’) have the option of reporting to an exchange or association for public dissemination, on behalf of customers that are OTC market makers or exchange market makers, the best-priced orders and the full size for such orders entered by market makers on the ECN, to satisfy such market makers’ reporting obligation under Rule 602(b). Since this reporting requirement is an alternative method of meeting the market makers’ reporting obligation, and because it is directed to nine or fewer persons (ECNs), this collection of information is not subject to OMB review under the Paperwork Reduction Act (‘‘PRA’’).

(‘‘Investment Company Act’’) and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’). Specifically, Form N–CSR is to be used for reports under section 30(b)(2) of the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a–29(b)(2)) and section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78m(a) and 78o(d)), filed pursuant to rule 30b2–1(a) under the Investment Company Act (17 CFR 270.30b2–1(a)). Reports on Form N CSR are to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) no later than 10 days after the transmission to stockholders of any report that is required to be transmitted to stockholders under rule 30e–1 under the Investment Company Act (17 CFR 270.30e–1). Form N–CSR is filed semi-annually, and the Commission estimates that there are 3,288 respondents. The Commission also estimates that the average number of portfolios referenced in each filing is 3.75.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations 30 CFR 7516.1 and .3 require 
coal mine operators to obtain a permit to mine under a body of water 
that is sufficiently large enough to constitute a hazard to miners and 
outline the procedural requirements for obtaining the permit. This 
information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1219-0020.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on May 24, 2013 (78 FR 31598).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1219-0020. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or
