AGENCY: ACTION: Grant of Individual Exemptions. This document contains exemptions issued by the Department of Labor (the Department) from certain of the prohibited transaction restrictions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA or the Act) and/or the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the Code). This notice includes the following: 2014–09, Renaissance Technologies, LLC, D–11730; and 2014– 10, Family Dynamics Inc., Pension Plan, D–11777. SUMMARY: Notices were previously published in the Federal Register of the pendency before the Department of proposals to grant the above-referenced exemptions. Each notice set forth a summary of facts and representations contained in an application for exemption, and referred interested persons to the application for a complete statement of the facts and representations. Each application has been available for public inspection at the Department in Washington, DC. Each notice also invited interested persons to submit comments on the requested exemption to the Department. In addition, each notice stated that any interested person might submit a written request that a public hearing be held (where appropriate). The applicants have represented that they have complied with the requirements of notifying interested persons. No request for a hearing was received by the Department. Public comments were received by the Department as described in each granted exemption. The notices of proposed exemption were issued, and the exemptions are being granted, solely by the Department because, effective December 31, 1978, section 102 of Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1978, 5 U.S.C. App. 1 (1996), transferred the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to issue exemptions of the type proposed to the Secretary of Labor. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:12 Nov 06, 2014 Jkt 235001 Renaissance Technologies, LLC (Renaissance or the Applicant) Located in New York, New York [Prohibited Transaction Exemption 2014–09; Application No. D–11730] Amendment to Exemption Section I.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
