Also, these banks must identify in their loan records loans in excess of the Board’s supervisory loan-to-value (LTV) limits. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board has determined that section 304 of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (12 U.S.C. 1828(o)) authorizes the Federal Reserve to require the recordkeeping requirements associated with the Board’s Regulation H (12 CFR 208.51). The obligation of state member banks to comply with the Reg H recordkeeping requirements is mandatory. Since the information is not collected by the Federal Reserve, no issue of confidentiality under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) normally arises. However, information gathered by the Federal Reserve during examinations of state member banks would be deemed exempt from FOIA disclosure by exemption 8 (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). In addition, exemptions (b)(4) and (b)(6) of FOIA, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(6)) also may exempt from disclosure certain data (specifically, individual loans identified as in excess of supervisory LTV limits) collected in response to these requirements if gathered by the Federal Reserve, depending on the particular circumstances. These additional exemptions relate to confidential commercial and financial information and personal information, respectively. Applicability of these exemptions would be determined on a case-by-case basis. Current actions: On September 27, 2017, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (82 FR 45025) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Recordkeeping Requirements Associated with the Real Estate Lending Standards Regulation for State Member Banks (Reg H–5). The comment period for this notice expired on November 27, 2017. The Board did not receive any comments. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, January 19, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Otay Mesa is located approximately 17 miles southeast of downtown 
San Diego, just north of the U.S. border and the Baja California 
Peninsula of Mexico. The Otay Mesa LPOE is one of the ten busiest 
LPOE's in the country and is the busiest commercial port on the 
California/Mexico border. Ever-increasing traffic loads and new 
security initiatives require increased capacity and new inspection 
technology to be installed and implemented at existing facilities.

Alternatives

    The EIS will consider two ``action'' alternatives and one ``no 
action'' alternative. The two ``action'' alternatives consist of 
renovation and expansion activities at the existing Otay Mesa LPOE. 
These activities could include the construction of additional primary 
inspection and exit booths; the construction of a new commercial annex 
building for enrollment and processing capabilities; and the relocation 
of the existing hazardous materials docks. Improvements could also 
include modifications to inspection stations and work areas, including 
the construction of a new Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regional 
training center. Enhancements could also include the construction and 
operation of secondary inspection areas, holding rooms, as well as the 
expansion of pedestrian and commercial lanes.
    The ``no action'' alternative assumes that modernization and 
expansion of the existing LPOE would not occur and that a new facility 
would not be constructed adjacent to the existing LPOE. The LPOE would 
continue to operate under current conditions.
