Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 57428-57429 [2019-23321]

Download as PDF 57428 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 207 / Friday, October 25, 2019 / Notices carriers experiencing rapid growth in a given market will be able to meet customer demand. States may use this safety valve to grant requests from carriers that demonstrate the following: (1) The carrier will exhaust its numbering resources in a market or rate area within three months (in lieu of six months-to-exhaust requirement); and (2) Projected growth is based on the carrier’s actual growth in the market or rate area, or in the carrier’s actual growth in a reasonably comparable market, but only if that projected growth varies no more than 15 percent from historical growth in the relevant market. The Commission lifted the ban on service-specific and technology-specific overlays (collectively, specialized overlays or SOs), allowing state commissions seeking to implement SOs to request delegated authority to do so on a case-by-case basis. To provide further guidance to state commissions, the Commission set forth the criteria that each request for delegated authority to implement a SO should address. This will enable us to examine the feasibility of SOs in a particular area, and to determine whether the Commission’s stated goals are likely to be met if the SO is implemented. Specifically, state commissions should also specifically address the following: (1) The technologies or services to be included in the SO; (2) The geographic area to be covered; (3) Whether the SO will be transitional; (4) When the SO will be implemented and, if a transitional SO is proposed, when the SO will become an all-services overlay; (5) Whether the SO will include takebacks; (6) Whether there will be 10-digit dialing in the SO and the underlying area code(s); (7) Whether the SO and underlying area code(s) will be subject to rationing; and (8) Whether the SO will cover an area in which pooling is taking place. The Commission uses the information it collects to assist the state commissions in carrying out their delegated authority over numbering resources. Federal Communications Commission.

Estimated average hours per response: 15 minutes. Estimated annual burden hours: 540. General description of report: The survey data are used to gather information specifically tailored to the Federal Reserve’s policy and operational responsibilities. Currently, this eventgenerated survey is approved to operate in two ways. First, under the guidance of Board staff, the Reserve Banks survey business contacts as economic developments warrant. Although each survey is contemplated to have approximately 2,400 business respondents (about 200 respondents per Reserve Bank), surveys in recent years have had far fewer respondents; occasionally, state and local government officials are surveyed rather than business, in which case there are also far fewer respondents. It is necessary to conduct these surveys to provide timely information to the members of the Board and presidents of the Reserve Banks. Usually, these surveys are conducted by Reserve Bank economists telephoning or emailing purchasing managers, economists, or other knowledgeable individuals at selected, relevant businesses. Reserve Bank staff may also use online survey tools to collect responses to the survey. The frequency and content of the questions, as well as the entities contacted, vary depending on developments in the economy. The draft reporting form provides a sample of the types of questions used in a previous survey to illustrate the format of these surveys. Second, economists at the Board survey business contacts by telephone, inquiring about current business conditions. Board economists conduct these surveys as economic conditions require, with approximately ten respondents for each survey. Proposed revisions: For surveys conducted by the Reserve Banks at the direction of the Board, the Board proposes to decrease the number of respondents from 2,400 to 720 (an average of 60 per Reserve Bank). This decrease better reflects the actual number of respondents in recent years. In addition, the Board proposes to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Oct 24, 2019 Jkt 250001 discontinue the surveys conducted solely by the Board, as they have not been conducted in recent years and are not anticipated to be needed in the future. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 1374 is authorized by sections 2A and 12A of the Federal Reserve Act (FRA). Section 2A of the FRA requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) ‘‘maintain long run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.’’ 1 Under section 12A of the FRA, the FOMC is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks ‘‘with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the country.’’ 2 In order to carry out these objectives, the Board must collect economic data, including by using the FR 1374. Survey submissions are voluntary. Individual respondents may request that information submitted to the Board through a survey under FR 1374 be kept confidential. If a respondent requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on a case-by-case basis. The Board will consider whether information collected through these surveys may be kept confidential under exemption 4 for the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’), which protects privileged or confidential commercial or financial information,3 or any other applicable FOIA exemption.
