Rural Utilities Service Title: Request for Release of Lien and/ or Approval of Sale. OMB Control Number: 0572–0041. Summary of Collection: The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) is a credit agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that makes mortgage loans and loan guarantees to finance electric, telecommunications, and water and waste facilities in rural areas. RUS manages loan programs in accordance with the Rural Electrification Act (RE Act) of 1936, 7 U.S.C. 901 et seq., as amended (RE Act). A 1949 amendment to the RE Act established the telephone program in RUS with the purpose of making loans to furnish and improve rural telephone service. Section 201 of the RE Act provides that loans shall not be made unless RUS finds and certifies that the security for the loan is reasonably adequate and that the loan will be repaid within the time agreed. In addition to providing loans and loan guarantees, one of RUS main objectives is to safeguard loan security until the loan is repaid. Need and Use of the Information: A borrower’s assets provide the security for a Government loan. The selling of assets reduces the security and increases the risk of loss to the Government. A borrower seeking permission to sell some of its assets uses RUS Form 793. The form contains detailed information regarding the proposed sale. If the information in Form 793 is not collected when capital assets are sold, the capital assets securing the Government’s loans VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:35 May 03, 2019 Jkt 247001 could be liquidated and the Government’s security either eliminated entirely or diluted to an undesirable level. This increases the risk of loss to the Government in the case of a default. Description of Respondents: Businesses or other for-profits; Not-forprofit institutions. Number of Respondents: 35. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 270. Kimble Brown, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.
