[FR Doc. 2017–21511 Filed 10–5–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–1999–5102] asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this provides the public notice that on August 25, 2017, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for an extension of a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 213, Track Safety Standards. The docket number associated with this petition is FRA–1999–5102. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Oct 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 SEPTA seeks to extend its existing waiver from 49 CFR 213.233(c), relating to the frequency of the required visual track inspections for FRA Class 3 and 4 track carrying passenger traffic. FRA issued the initial waiver on July 24, 2000, and FRA extended the waiver on August 4, 2003, February 28, 2008, and April 25, 2013 for three 5-year periods. SEPTA requests an extension of its existing waiver to conduct fewer visual track inspections than required by § 213.233(c), specifically for tracks constructed with continuous welded rail that carry passenger traffic. SEPTA proposes to continue conducting one visual track inspection per week, instead of the two inspections per week that are required, and to supplement its visual inspections with the operation of an automated track geometry measuring vehicle over the affected main tracks and sidings four times per year. SEPTA has owned and operated such a measuring vehicle since 1992. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the Department of Transportation’s Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

[FR Doc. 2017–21618 Filed 10–5–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Office of the Comptroller of the Currency FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment Request Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Treasury; Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board); and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). ACTION: Joint notice and request for comment. AGENCY: In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), have approved the publication for public comment of the proposed Annual Dodd-Frank Act Company-Run Stress Test Report for Depository Institutions and Holding Companies with $10–$50 Billion in Total Consolidated Assets (FFIEC 016). This proposed report would combine the agencies’ three separate, yet identical, stress test report forms (as described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION), which SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00135 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46887 are currently approved collections of information, into a single new FFIEC report. As part of their proposed adoption of the new FFIEC 016 report, the agencies also are proposing to implement a limited number of revisions that would align the report with recent burden-reducing changes to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income and the Board’s FR Y–9C Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies. In addition, the agencies are proposing to have institutions provide their Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) on the report form, if they already have one. The proposed FFIEC 016 reporting requirements reflect the company-run stress testing requirements promulgated by the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (as reflected in the agencies’ current information collections). The Board, in connection with this proposal and conditioned on the final adoption of the FFIEC 016, is proposing to replace the FR Y–16 (Annual Company-Run Stress Test Report For State Member Banks, Bank Holding Companies, and Savings and Loan Holding Companies with Total Consolidated Assets Greater Than $10 Billion and Less Than $50 Billion), which it currently uses to collect the annual company-run stress test results. Also in connection with the final adoption of the FFIEC 016, the OCC and the FDIC are proposing to replace the OCC’s DFAST 10–50B (Annual Company-Run Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act), and the FDIC’s DFAST 10–50 (Company-Run Annual Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act), respectively, with the FFIEC 016. The respondents for the proposed FFIEC 016 are institutions with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less than $50 billion. The proposed FFIEC 016 would take effect for the December 31, 2017, as-of date of the stress test report. The submission deadline for the report would be the following July 31. At the end of the comment period for this notice, the comments and recommendations received will be reviewed to determine whether the FFIEC and the agencies should modify the proposal for the FFIEC 016 report E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
