Agency Information Collection Activities: Announcement of Board Approval Under Delegated Authority and Submission to OMB, 22490 [2018-10265]

Download as PDF 22490 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 94 / Tuesday, May 15, 2018 / Notices be kept confidential under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects from disclosure trade secrets and commercial or financial information (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Current actions: On February 21, 2018, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (83 FR 7474) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Reports of Deposits (FR 2900; OMB No. 7100–0087). The Board proposes raising the nonexempt deposit cutoff to $1 billion, substantially increasing the cutoff from its indexed amount of $457.5 million that is set to take effect in September 2018. This proposed increase in the nonexempt deposit cutoff would reduce reporting burden on depository institutions while maintaining accurate measurements of the money and reserves aggregates. With this increase, the Board estimates that approximately 1,000 depository institutions would become newly eligible to elect to shift from weekly to quarterly FR 2900 reporting. However, consistent with current policy, newly eligible institutions for quarterly reporting may elect to continue reporting weekly. There are no changes proposed for the FR 2910a, FR 2915, or FR 2930. The comment period for this notice expired on April 23, 2018. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 9, 2018. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board.
