Comments are requested concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees. OMB Control Number: 3060–1204. Title: Deployment of Text-to-911. Form Number: Not applicable. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Businesses or other-forprofit and state, local and tribal governments. Number of Respondents and Responses: 2,649 Respondents; 51,730 Responses. Estimated Time per Response: 1–8 hours. Frequency of Response: One-time; annual reporting requirements and third-party disclosure requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for these collections is contained in 47 U.S.C. 151, 152, 154(i), 154(j), 154(o), 251(e), 303(b), 303(g), 303(r), 316, and 403. Total Annual Burden: 69,883 hours. Total Annual Cost: No Cost. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No Impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality. Needs and Uses: In a Second Report and Order released on August 13, 2014, FCC 14–118, published at 79 FR 55367, September 16, 2014, the Commission adopted final rules—containing information collection requirements—to enable the Commission to implement text-to-911 service. The text-to-911 rules provide enhanced access to emergency services for people with disabilities and fulfilling a crucial role as an alternative means of emergency communication for the general public in situations where sending a text message to 911 as opposed to placing a voice call could be vital to the caller’s safety. The Second Report and Order adopted rules to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Dec 27, 2017 Jkt 244001 commence the implementation of textto-911 service with an initial deadline of December 31, 2014 for all covered text providers to be capable of supporting text-to-911 service. The Second Report and Order also provided that covered text providers would then have a sixmonth implementation period. They must begin routing all 911 text messages to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) by June 30, 2015 or within six months of a valid PSAP request for textto-911 service, whichever is later. To implement these requirements, the Commission seeks to collect information primarily for a database in which PSAPs voluntarily register that they are technically ready to receive text messages to 911. As PSAPs become textready, they may either register in the PSAP database (or submit a notification to PS Docket Nos. 10–255 and 11–153), or provide other written notification reasonably acceptable to a covered text messaging provider. Either measure taken by the PSAP constitutes sufficient notification pursuant to the rules in the Second Report and Order. PSAPs and covered text providers may also agree to an alternative implementation timeframe (other than six months). Covered text providers must notify the FCC of the dates and terms of any such alternate timeframe within 30 days of the parties’ agreement. Additionally, the rules adopted by the Second Report and Order include other information collections for third party notifications necessary for the implementation of text-to-911, including notifications to consumers, covered text providers, and the Commission. These notifications are essential to ensure that all affected parties are aware of the limitations, capabilities, and status of text-to-911 services. These information collections enable the Commission to meet the objectives for implementation of text-to911 service and for compliance by covered text providers with the sixmonth implementation period in furtherance of the Commission’s core mission to ensure the public’s safety.

    There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. 
The overall reduction in burden hours is a result of economic 
fluctuation. In particular, the number of respondents has decreased 
while the reporting frequency and the estimated time per response 
remain the same.
    General Description of Collection: The 1975 Amendments to the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 established a comprehensive framework 
for the regulation of the activities of municipal securities dealers. 
Under Section 15B(a) of the Securities Exchange Act, municipal 
securities dealers which are banks, or separately identifiable 
departments or divisions of banks engaging in municipal securities 
activities, are required to be registered with the Securities and 
Exchange Commission in accordance with such rules as the Municipal 
Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB), a rulemaking authority established 
by the 1975 Amendments, may prescribe as necessary or appropriate in 
the public interest or for the protection of investors.
    One of the areas in which the Act directed the MSRB to promulgate 
rules is the qualifications of persons associated with municipal 
securities dealers as municipal securities principals and municipal 
securities representatives. The MSRB Rules require persons who are or 
seek to be associated with municipal securities dealers as municipal 
securities principals or municipal securities representatives to 
provide certain background information and conversely, require the 
municipal securities dealers to obtain the information from such 
persons. Generally, the information required to be furnished relates to 
employment history and professional background including any 
disciplinary sanctions and any claimed bases for exemption from MSRB 
examination requirements.
    The FDIC and the other two Federal bank regulatory agencies, the 
Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Reserve Board, have 
prescribed Forms MSD-4 to satisfy these requirements and have 
prescribed Form MSD-5 for notification by a bank municipal securities 
dealer that a municipal securities principal's or a municipal 
securities representative's association with the dealer has terminated 
and the reason for such termination. State nonmember banks and state 
savings associations that are municipal security dealers submit these 
forms, as applicable, to the FDIC as their appropriate regulatory 
agency for each person associated with the dealer as a municipal 
securities principal or municipal securities representative.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. 
There is an overall reduction in burden hours which is the result of 
(1) economic fluctuation reflected by a decrease in the number of FDIC-
supervised institutions and (2) a decrease in the number of requests 
for deregistration of a registered transfer agent forms submitted to 
the FDIC.
    General Description of Collection: Under the Securities Exchange 
Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78q-1), an insured nonmember bank (or a 
subsidiary of such a bank) that functions as a transfer agent may 
withdraw from registration as a transfer agent by filing a written 
notice of withdrawal with the FDIC. The FDIC requires such banks to 
file FDIC Form 6342/12 as the written notice of withdrawal.
    Request for Comment: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the 
collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of 
the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the 
information collections, including the validity of the methodology and 
assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden 
of the collections of information on respondents, including through the 
use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
