Covered Persons are required to make certain written and oral disclosures before the completion of the initial sale of an insurance product or annuity to a consumer and at the time a consumer applies for an extension of credit in connection with which an insurance product or annuity is solicited, offered, or sold (see 12 CFR 208.84(a)–(d)). Legal authorization and confidentiality: Section 305 of the GLBA requires that the Board issue regulations, including disclosure requirements, applicable to retail sales practices, solicitations, advertising, or offers of insurance by depository institutions (12 U.S.C. 1831x). The disclosure requirements described above are contained in subpart H of the Board’s Regulation H. 12 CFR part 208, subpart H. The disclosures required under subpart H are mandatory. Because Regulation H–7 disclosures are provided by Covered Persons to customers, confidentiality issues should generally not arise.

GSA is required by the MOBILE NOW Act (Section 608(d) of Title VI of Division P of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 [P. L. 115–141]) to study: (a) How to incentivize State and local governments to provide GSA with real property data for inclusion in the Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP) database, and (b) the feasibility of establishing or operating a database to which State and local governments can voluntarily submit this data. Section 608(d) also directs GSA to consult with State and PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 52453 local governments, or their representatives, to identify the most cost effective options for State and local governments to collect and provide real property data on assets that could support a communications facility installation and make recommendations on ways the Federal Government can assist State and local governments in collecting and providing this data. Further, section 608(d) directs GSA to submit a report to Congress on this study by March 22, 2019. This information is not already widely available and requires the solicitation of feedback from the relevant stakeholders. GSA determined that developing a survey was the most efficient and effective means for studying the items identified in Section 608(d) within this timeframe. This is a one-time data collection and will not require repeated collection. Although the agency may not respond to each individual comment, GSA may follow-up with respondents to clarify comments. GSA values public feedback and will consider all input that it receives. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1,200. Responses per Respondent: 1. Total Annual Responses: 1,200.

Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for 
Three Years, Without Revision, of the Following Report

    Report title: Disclosure Requirements of subpart H of Regulation H 
(Consumer Protections in Sales of Insurance).
    Agency form number: Reg H-7.
    OMB control number: 7100-0298.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Respondents: State member banks and other persons.
    Estimated number of respondents: 822.
    Estimated time per response: 1.5 minutes.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 12,947.
    General description of report: Subpart H of Regulation H was 
adopted by the Board in 2003 pursuant to section 305 of the Gramm-
Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA), which required the federal banking 
agencies to issue joint regulations governing retail sales practices, 
solicitations, advertising, and offers of insurance by, on behalf of, 
or at the offices of insured depository institutions. The insurance 
consumer protection rules in Regulation H, which apply to the sale of 
insurance by a state member bank or by any other person at

[[Page 52453]]

an office of the bank or on behalf of the bank (collectively, ``Covered 
Persons''), require Covered Persons to prepare and provide certain 
disclosures to consumers. Covered Persons are required to make certain 
written and oral disclosures before the completion of the initial sale 
of an insurance product or annuity to a consumer and at the time a 
consumer applies for an extension of credit in connection with which an 
insurance product or annuity is solicited, offered, or sold (see 12 CFR 
208.84(a)-(d)).
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: Section 305 of the GLBA 
requires that the Board issue regulations, including disclosure 
requirements, applicable to retail sales practices, solicitations, 
advertising, or offers of insurance by depository institutions (12 
U.S.C. 1831x). The disclosure requirements described above are 
contained in subpart H of the Board's Regulation H. 12 CFR part 208, 
subpart H. The disclosures required under subpart H are mandatory. 
Because Regulation H-7 disclosures are provided by Covered Persons to 
customers, confidentiality issues should generally not arise. However, 
if the Board obtains any institution-specific information during an 
examination of a state member bank, such information may be protected 
under exemption (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act, which exempts 
from disclosure materials related to the examination of financial 
institutions (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)).
