PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23249 Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, with revision, of the following report: Report title: Ongoing Intermittent Survey of Households. Agency form number: FR 3016. OMB control number: 7100–0150. Frequency: Monthly. Respondents: Households and individuals. Estimated number of respondents: 500. Estimated average hours per response: 1.58 minutes. Estimated annual burden hours: 158 hours. General Description of Report: The Board uses this voluntary survey to obtain household-based information specifically tailored to the Board’s policy, regulatory, and operational responsibilities. The Board primarily uses the survey to study consumer financial decisions, attitudes, and payment behavior. Currently, the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center (SRC) includes survey questions on behalf of the Board in an addendum to their regular bi-weekly Survey of Consumer Attitudes and Expectations. The SRC conducts the survey by telephone with a sample of 500 households and asks questions of special interest to the Board. Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to eliminate the Division of Consumer and Community Affairs and other divisions’ SRC surveys, as well as non-SRC surveys, as these surveys have not been conducted since 2010 and are not expected to be utilized in the next several years. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act (‘‘FRA’’) requires that the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Open Market Committee maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates (12 U.S.C. 225a). Under section 12A of the FRA, the Federal Open Market Committee is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the country (12 U.S.C. 263). Because the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee use the information obtained on the FR 3016 to fulfill these E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1 23250 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 97 / Monday, May 22, 2017 / Notices obligations, these statutory provisions provide the legal authorization for the collection of information on the FR 3016. The FR 3016 is a voluntary survey. No issue of confidentiality normally arises under the FR 3016, as names and any other characteristics that would permit personal identification of respondents are not reported to the Board. However, should the Board obtain such information, it would likely be exempt under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)) to the extent that it includes ‘‘personnel and medical files and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 17, 2017.

Background: The Advisory Board was established under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 to advise the President on a variety of policy and technical functions required to implement and effectively manage the VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:17 May 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 new compensation program. Key functions of the Advisory Board include providing advice on the development of probability of causation guidelines that have been promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as a final rule; advice on methods of dose reconstruction, which have also been promulgated by HHS as a final rule; advice on the scientific validity and quality of dose estimation and reconstruction efforts being performed for purposes of the compensation program; and advice on petitions to add classes of workers to the Special Exposure Cohort (SEC). In December 2000, the President delegated responsibility for funding, staffing, and operating the Advisory Board to HHS, which subsequently delegated this authority to CDC. NIOSH implements this responsibility for CDC. The charter was issued on August 3, 2001, renewed at appropriate intervals, rechartered on March 22, 2016 pursuant to Executive Order 13708, and will expire on September 30, 2017.

The Subcommittee for Dose Reconstruction Reviews was established to aid the Advisory Board in carrying out its duty to advise the Secretary, HHS, on dose reconstruction. Matters for Discussion: The agenda for the Subcommittee meeting includes the following dose reconstruction program quality management and assurance activities: Dose reconstruction cases under review from Sets 14–23, including the Oak Ridge sites (Y–12, K– 25, Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Hanford, Feed Materials Production Center (‘‘Fernald’’), Mound Plant, Rocky Flats Plant, Nevada Test Site, Idaho National Laboratory, Savannah River Site, and other Department of Energy and ‘‘Atomic Weapons Employer’’ facilities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Request for Comment on Information Collection Proposal

    The Board invites public comment on the following information 
collection, which is being reviewed under authority delegated by the 
OMB under the PRA. Comments are invited on the following:
    a. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the Federal Reserve's functions; including 
whether the information has practical utility;
    b. The accuracy of the Federal Reserve's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed information collection, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    d. Ways to minimize the burden of information collection on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; and
    e. Estimates of capital or startup costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
    At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations 
received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the Federal 
Reserve should modify the proposed revisions prior to giving final 
approval.
    Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, with revision, of the following report:
    Report title: Ongoing Intermittent Survey of Households.
    Agency form number: FR 3016.
    OMB control number: 7100-0150.
    Frequency: Monthly.
    Respondents: Households and individuals.
    Estimated number of respondents: 500.
    Estimated average hours per response: 1.58 minutes.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 158 hours.
    General Description of Report: The Board uses this voluntary survey 
to obtain household-based information specifically tailored to the 
Board's policy, regulatory, and operational responsibilities. The Board 
primarily uses the survey to study consumer financial decisions, 
attitudes, and payment behavior. Currently, the University of 
Michigan's Survey Research Center (SRC) includes survey questions on 
behalf of the Board in an addendum to their regular bi-weekly Survey of 
Consumer Attitudes and Expectations. The SRC conducts the survey by 
telephone with a sample of 500 households and asks questions of special 
interest to the Board.
    Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to eliminate the Division of 
Consumer and Community Affairs and other divisions' SRC surveys, as 
well as non-SRC surveys, as these surveys have not been conducted since 
2010 and are not expected to be utilized in the next several years.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act (``FRA'') 
requires that the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Open Market 
Committee maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit 
aggregates commensurate with the economy's long run potential to 
increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum 
employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates (12 
U.S.C. 225a). Under section 12A of the FRA, the Federal Open Market 
Committee is required to implement regulations relating to the open 
market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks with a view to 
accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing 
upon the general credit situation of the country (12 U.S.C. 263). 
Because the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee use the 
information obtained on the FR 3016 to fulfill these

[[Page 23250]]

obligations, these statutory provisions provide the legal authorization 
for the collection of information on the FR 3016. The FR 3016 is a 
voluntary survey. No issue of confidentiality normally arises under the 
FR 3016, as names and any other characteristics that would permit 
personal identification of respondents are not reported to the Board. 
However, should the Board obtain such information, it would likely be 
exempt under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 
552(b)(6)) to the extent that it includes ``personnel and medical files 
and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.''
