Agency form number: FR 1583. OMB control number: 7100–0339. Effective Date: Immediately. Frequency: As needed (approximately two per year, based on the average number of FR 1583 forms received annually, per respondent, for calendar years 2016 through 2018). Respondents: Savings association subsidiaries of savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs). Estimated number of respondents: 122. Estimated average hours per response: 0.275. Estimated annual burden hours: 67. General description of report: Savings association subsidiaries of SLHCs must provide prior notice of a dividend by filing form FR 1583 with the appropriate Reserve Bank. The FR 1583 requires information regarding the date of the filing and the nature and amount of the proposed dividend, as well as the names and signatures of the executive officer and secretary of the savings association that is providing the notice. The savings association subsidiary must file this prior notice at least 30 days before the proposed declaration of a dividend by its board of directors. Section 10(f) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act (HOLA) provides that the 30-day period commences on the date of receipt of the complete record of the notice by the board. This notice may include a schedule proposing dividends over a period specified by the notificant, not to exceed 12 months. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 1583 is mandatory and is authorized by Section E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM 26SEN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 50840 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 187 / Thursday, September 26, 2019 / Notices 10(f) of the HOLA (12 U.S.C. 1467a(f)). The Board also has the authority to require reports from savings and loan holding companies under Section 10(a) and (b) of the HOLA (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) and (g)). Section 10(f) of the HOLA provides that every subsidiary savings association of an SLHC shall give the Board at least 30 days’ advance notice of the proposed declaration by its directors of any stock dividend. Individual respondents may request that information submitted on the FR 1583 be kept confidential on a case-bycase basis. If a respondent requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on an ad hoc basis. The FR 1583 may include information related to the SLHC’s business operations, such as terms and sources of the funding for dividends and pro forma balance sheets. This information may be kept confidential under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects privileged or confidential commercial or financial information (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Current actions: On June 17, 2019, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (84 FR 28049) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Notice of Proposed Declaration of Dividend. The Board proposed several revisions to make the FR 1583 consistent with the format of other Board forms and to reflect the Board’s regulations. Specifically, the Board proposed the following revisions: 1. Adding an item requiring the filer to identify the ‘‘Nature of the Dividend.’’ Board regulations permit a dividend to consist of the distribution of cash or other property, or any transaction that is substantively a dividend, as provided by the Board (12 CFR 238.102(d)). The Reserve Bank must know the nature of the dividend to review the notice for consistency with the Board’s regulations. 2. Adding an item requesting date of filing. This information is customarily requested in Board reporting forms so that the timing of filings can be tracked. 3. Deleting an item asking the filer to select whether the institution qualifies or does not qualify for expedited treatment. The Board’s regulations do not provide for expedited treatment of notices of proposed declarations of dividends. 4. Deleting an item asking the filer to select whether the submission is a notice or application. The Board’s regulations provide that a filer provide notice, rather than an application, to the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Sep 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 appropriate Reserve Bank (12 CFR 238.103). 5. Deleting an item allowing institutions to attach additional information required pursuant to the Office of Thrift Supervision’s regulations (12 CFR 563.143). The Board does not have analogous regulations. 6. Adding the option to submit the FR 1583 electronically by Portable Document Format. Use of electronic submissions will reduce burden on both the filer and the Board. 7. Adding two items for the printed name of the firm Executive Officer and Secretary who sign the FR 1583. This change will help Federal Reserve staff identify the individuals associated with the filing. The comment period for this notice expired on August 16, 2019. The Board did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed. FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM 1. Michael C. Martin Gift Trust, Kristine M.P. Martin and William S. Martin as co-trustees; the William S.
