In order to make this determination, the Federal Reserve must determine the relevant market and then determine the level of competition in the market. This survey provides the data necessary to make such determinations when the Federal Reserve otherwise would not have such information. Information obtained from small business and individuals may be kept confidential under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Information obtained from small businesses can be considered confidential under exemption (b)(4) of the FOIA because the release of information obtained from small businesses would (1) impair the Board’s ability to obtain this information from entities that could not be compelled to respond, and (2) cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the entity from whom the information was obtained (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). In addition, information obtained from consumers may be kept confidential under exemption (b)(6) of the FOIA because the information the survey collects is the type of information that would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy (Id. at 552(b)(6)). Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses this information to define relevant banking markets for specific merger and acquisition applications and to evaluate changes in competition that would result from proposed transactions, including purchase and assumption agreements. The event-generated survey is conducted by telephone and has been used no more than once per year since 1990. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to extend, without revision, the FR 2060 information collection. 3. Report title: Notice of Branch Closure. Agency form number: FR 4031. OMB control number: 7100–0264. Frequency: On occasion. Reporters: State member banks. Estimated annual burden hours: 247 hours. Estimated average hours per response: Reporting requirements: 2 hours; Disclosure requirements, customer mailing: 0.75 hours and posted notice, 0.25 hours; and Recordkeeping requirements: 8 hours. Number of respondents: Reporting requirements: 82; Disclosure requirements: customer mailing, 82 and posted notice, 82; and Recordkeeping requirements, 0. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant to Section 42(a)(1) of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Apr 01, 2016 Jkt 238001 Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act) (12 U.S.C. 1831r–l(a)(1)). The Federal Reserve does not consider individual respondent data to be confidential. However, a state member bank may request confidential treatment pursuant to exemption b(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C.552(b)(4)). Abstract: The mandatory reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements regarding the closing of any branch of an insured depository institution are imposed by section 228 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (FDICIA). There is no formal reporting form (the FR 4031 designation is for internal purposes only) associated with the reporting portion of this information collection; state member banks notify the Federal Reserve by letter prior to closing a branch. The Federal Reserve uses the information to fulfill its statutory obligation to supervise state member banks. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to extend, without revision, the FR 4031 information collection. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, March 30, 2016. Robert deV.

Background

    Under Title IX of the Public Health Service Act, AHRQ is charged 
with enhancing the quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of 
health care services and access to such services 42 U.S.C. 299(b). AHRQ 
accomplishes these goals through scientific research and promotion of 
improvements in clinical practice, including clinical prevention of 
diseases and other health conditions. See 42 U.S.C. 299(b).
    The USPSTF, an independent body of experts in prevention and 
evidence- based medicine, works to improve the health of all Americans 
by making evidence-based recommendations about the effectiveness of 
clinical preventive services and health promotion. The recommendations 
made by the USPSTF address clinical preventive services for adults and 
children, and include screening tests, counseling services, and 
preventive medications.
    The USPSTF was first established in 1984 under the auspices of the 
U.S. Public Health Service. Currently, the USPSTF is convened by the 
Director of AHRQ, and AHRQ provides ongoing scientific, administrative, 
and dissemination support for the USPSTF's operation. USPSTF members 
serve four year terms. New members are selected each year to replace 
those members who are completing their appointments.
    The USPSTF is charged with rigorously evaluating the effectiveness, 
appropriateness and cost-effectiveness of clinical preventive services 
and formulating or updating recommendations regarding the appropriate 
provision of preventive services. See 42 U.S.C. 299b-4(a)(1). Current 
USPSTF recommendations and associated evidence reviews are available on 
the Internet (www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org).
    USPSTF members currently meet three times a year for two days in 
the Washington, DC area. A significant portion of the USPSTF's work 
occurs between meetings during conference calls and via email

commenting on systematic evidence reviews of evidence, discussing and

comments, drafting final recommendation documents, and participating in 
workgroups on specific topics and methods. Members can expect to 
receive frequent emails, can expect to participate in multiple 
conference calls each month, and can expect to have periodic 
interaction with stakeholders. AHRQ estimates that members devote 
approximately 200 hours a year outside of in-person meetings to their
