Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 92 / Wednesday, May 13, 2015 / Notices ACTION: Notice; extension of comment period. Section 502(a) of the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (CARD Act or Act) requires the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau or CFPB) to conduct a review (Review) of the consumer credit card market, within the limits of its existing resources available for reporting purposes. In connection with conducting that Review, and in accordance with Section 502(b) of the CARD Act, the Bureau published a Request for Information in the Federal Register on March 19, 2015, soliciting from the public comment on a number of aspects of the consumer credit card market. The Request for Information provided a 60-day comment period that will end on May 18, 2015. To allow interested persons additional time to consider and submit their responses, the Bureau has determined that an extension of the comment period on four of the specific areas of interest noted in the original Request for Information—online disclosures, grace periods, add-on products, and debt collection—until June 17, 2015, is appropriate. SUMMARY: The comment period for the Request for Information Regarding Credit Card Market, published March 19, 2015, at 80 FR 14365, is extended with respect to four areas of interest. Responses on those areas of interest specifically extended must now be received on or before June 17, 2015; the deadline for responses on all other areas remains unchanged. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. CFPB–2015– 0007, by any of the following methods: • Electronic: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. • Mail: Monica Jackson, Office of the Executive Secretary, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street NW., Washington, DC 20552. • Hand Delivery/Courier: Monica Jackson, Office of the Executive Secretary, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1275 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20002. Instructions: All submissions should include the agency name and docket number for this proposal. Because paper mail in the Washington, DC area and at the Bureau is subject to delay, commenters are encouraged to submit comments electronically. In general, all comments received will be posted without change to http:// www.regulations.gov. In addition, comments will be available for public asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 May 12, 2015 Jkt 235001 27295 inspection and copying at 1275 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20002, on official business days between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. eastern standard time.

Dated: May 5, 2015. Christopher A. D’Angelo, Chief of Staff, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general inquiries, submission process questions, or any additional information, please contact Monica Jackson, Office of the Executive Secretary, 202–435–7275. AGENCY: On March 19, 2015, the Bureau published the Request for Information in the Federal Register, 80 FR 14365. The Request for Information seeks comment, data, and information from the public on the state of the credit card market, both generally and specifically to 12 issues and areas specifically identified by the Bureau. Since publication, the Bureau has received multiple requests for extension of the comment deadline. While the Bureau believes the initial deadline should provide sufficient time for the public to comment on these matters, it wants to ensure that all interested parties are able to provide information and insight to the Bureau as it seeks greater understanding of the credit card market. The Bureau wants to balance interested parties’ desire to have additional time to consider the issues raised in the Request for Information, gather data, and prepare their responses, with the need to proceed expeditiously to consider comments. By extending the comment period for certain issues, the Bureau believes that it is effectively striking that balance. The Bureau believes that a 30-day extension on four of the twelve issues raised in the Request for Information—online disclosures, grace periods, add-on products, and debt collection—is appropriate, as these questions focus on particular areas of potential policy concern and may require additional time to respond. The comment period for those four issues will therefore close on June 17, 2015; the deadline for comments on all other areas and issues remains unchanged. The Defense Acquisition Regulations System has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). DATES: Consideration will be given to all comments received by June 12, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Project Background and Authorization. The 1981 Feasibility Study entitled ‘‘Deep-Draft Access to the Ports of New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana’’ (1981 Feasibility Study) was authorized by Section 2 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1945, (Pub. L. 79–14), which combined several existing deep-draft projects on the Mississippi River and modified them to provide new navigation channel dimensions. The 1981 Feasibility Study, which included an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), recommended deepening the Mississippi River’s navigation channel to a 55-foot depth from Baton Rouge to the Gulf of Mexico. A Chief of Engineers Report was completed in April 1983, and a Record of Decision was signed on December 23, 1986. The Mississippi River Ship Channel, Gulf to Baton Rouge, Louisiana project was authorized for construction by Section 101 of the 1985 Supplemental Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 99–88). The authorized plan provides for a navigation channel with a 55-foot depth over a 750-foot bottom width from the Gulf of Mexico to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and a turning basin at the head of the deepened channel in Baton Rouge. Authorization also included deepening the existing 35 feet deep by 1,500 feet wide channel at the New Orleans harbor to 40 feet, providing river training works in South Pass and Pass a Loutre, and creating wetlands and upland habitat with dredged material along Southwest Pass. Phase I of the Mississippi River Ship Channel, Gulf to Baton Rouge, LA Project consisted of a 45-foot channel from the Gulf of Mexico to river mile 181 near Donaldsonville, Louisiana, and was completed in December 1987. Phase II consisted of the remainder of the 45 foot channel from river mile 181 to Baton Rouge, and was completed in December 1994. Phase III of the Project was identified as the deepening of the entire channel to 55 feet from the Gulf of Mexico to Baton Rouge. The NonFederal Sponsor, the State of Louisiana, Department of Transportation and Development, has requested that an incremental phase of deepening the entire length of the channel to 50 feet be considered. A final phase of deepening the channel to 55 feet may be considered in the future. The Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 amended the Water Resources and Development Act of 1986, to increase the Federal threshold for full E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1
