Title and purpose of information collection: Availability for Work; OMB 3220–0164. Under Section 1(k) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, unemployment benefits are not payable for any day for which the claimant is not available for work. Under Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) regulation 20 CFR 327.5, ‘‘available for work’’ is defined as being willing and ready for work. A claimant is ‘‘willing’’ to work if willing to accept and perform for hire such work as is reasonably appropriate to his or her employment circumstances. A claimant is ‘‘ready’’ for work if he or she (1) is in a position to receive notice of work and is willing to accept and perform such work, and (2) is prepared to be present with the customary equipment at the location of such work within the time usually allotted. Under RRB regulation 20 CFR 327.15, a claimant may be requested at any time to show, as evidence of willingness to work, that reasonable efforts are being made to obtain work. In order to determine whether a claimant is; (a) available for work, and (b) willing to work, the RRB utilizes Forms UI–38, UI Claimant’s Report of Efforts to Find Work, and UI–38s, School Attendance and Availability Questionnaire, to obtain information from the claimant and Form ID–8k, Questionnaire— Reinstatement of Discharged or Suspended Employee, from the union representative. One response is completed by each respondent. Completion of Forms UI–38 and UI–38s is required to obtain or retain benefits. Completion of Form ID–8k is voluntary. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (79 FR 37357 on July 1, 2014) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments. Information Collection Request (ICR) Title: Availability for Work. OMB Control Number: 3220–0164. Form(s) submitted: UI–38, UI–38s, and ID–8k. Type of request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Affected public: Individuals or Households, Non-profit institutions. Abstract: Under Section 1(k) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, unemployment benefits are not payable for any day in which the claimant is not available for work. The collection obtains information needed by the RRB to determine whether a claimant is willing and ready to work. Changes proposed: The RRB proposes no changes to the forms in the collection. The burden estimate for the ICR is as follows: Annual responses Form No. Time (minutes) Burden (hours) UI–38s: In person ...............................................................................................................................

Extension: Rule 10A–1, SEC File No. 270–425, OMB Control No. 3235–0468. 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’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Management and Budget for extension and approval. Rule 10A–1 (17 CFR 240.10A–1) implements the reporting requirements in Section 10A of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78j–1) which was enacted by Congress on December 22, 1995 as part of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Public Law No. 104–67, 109 Stat 737. Under section 10A and Rule 10A–1 reporting occurs only if a registrant’s board of directors receives a report from its auditor that (1) there is an illegal act material to the registrant’s financial statements, (2) senior management and the board have not taken timely and appropriate remedial action, and (3) the failure to take such action is reasonably expected to warrant the auditor’s modification of the audit report or resignation from the audit engagement. The board of directors must notify the Commission within one business day of receiving such a report. If the board fails to provide that notice, then the auditor, within the next business day, must provide the Commission with a copy of the report that it gave to the board. Likely respondents are those registrants filing audited financial statements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 USC 78a, et seq.) and the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 USC 80a–1, et seq.). It is estimated that Rule 10A–1 results in an aggregate additional reporting burden of 10 hours per year. The estimated average burden hours are solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of SEC rules or forms. Written comments are invited on: (a) 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; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
