In short, modern forms of dissemination, being more speedy and comprehensive, may reduce the need for such a long time period between the release of PFEIs, and policy comment on them by employees of the Executive Branch. Request for Comments: The full text of Directive No. 3, as issued in 1985, is available at https:// www.whitehouse.gov/sites/ whitehouse.gov/files/omb/assets/OMB/ inforeg/statpolicy/dir_3_fr_ 09251985.pdf. This notice requests comment on the continued relevance of the provision of Directive No. 3 that prohibits public comment by employees of the Executive Branch from speaking about the release until at least one hour following the release of PFEIs. In particular, OMB seeks comment on whether advances in information dissemination technology since Directive No. 3’s issuance in 1985 could provide for meeting the goals of Directive No. 3 to ensure equitable, policy-neutral, and timely release and dissemination of PFEIs under a shorter time delay, including no time delay at all. The text relevant to the specified provision for comment appears within the last paragraph of Section 5. For ease of review, the abbreviated text of Section 5 is provided below, and the text describing the current limitation on Executive Branch employees is provided in bolded text. 5. Release Procedure. * * * Except for the authorized distribution described in this section, agencies shall ensure that no information or data estimates are released before the official release time. The agency will provide prerelease information to the President, through the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, as soon as it is available. The agency may grant others prerelease access only under the following conditions: (a) The agency head must establish whatever security arrangements are necessary and impose whatever conditions on the granting of access are necessary to ensure that there is no unauthorized dissemination or use. (b) The agency head shall ensure that any person granted access has been fully informed of and agreed to these conditions. (c) Any prerelease of information under an embargo shall not precede the official release time by more than 30 minutes. (d) In all cases, prerelease access shall precede the official release time only to the extent necessary for an orderly review of the data. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Apr 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 All employees of the Executive Branch who receive prerelease distribution of information and data estimates as authorized above are responsible for assuring that there is no release prior to the official release time. Except for members of the staff of the agency issuing the principal economic indicator who have been designated by the agency head to provide technical explanations of the data, employees of the Executive Branch shall not comment publicly on the data until at least one hour after the official release time. Any changes to the text from Section 5 would neither affect nor replace any of the other standards and guidelines articulated in Directive No. 3. OMB seeks comments from all interested parties, including data users, businesses, and the media, on the continued relevance of the one-hour delay identified in the provision that ‘‘employees of the Executive Branch shall not comment publicly on the data until at least one hour after the official release time.’’ In particular, OMB seeks comment about maintaining the onehour delay, as well as reducing the time duration of the delay to some amount less than one hour, including consideration of the option of eliminating the delay entirely.

(‘‘Exchange Act’’). The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget) (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval.

The Rule enables the Commission to obtain reports from the SROs containing information regarding SRO determinations to delist a security, discipline members or associated persons of members, deny membership or participation or association with a member, and similar adjudicated findings. The Rule requires that such actions be promptly reported to the Commission. The Rule also requires that the reports and notices supply sufficient information regarding the background, factual basis and issues involved in the proceeding to enable the Commission: (1) To determine whether the matter should be called up for review on the Commission’s own motion; and (2) to ascertain generally whether the SRO has adequately carried out its responsibilities under the Exchange Act.

The Commission estimates that the average number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 19d–1 for each submission is 1 hour. The total annual burden for all respondents is thus 1,350 hours. The Commission estimates that the internal compliance cost per respondent is approximately $298 per response.
