Section khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Nov 18, 2019 Jkt 250001 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the collection of information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Title: Exemptions from Speculative Limits (OMB Control No. 3038–0013). This is a request for an extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Commission rule 150.4 provides that all persons holding a greater than 10 percent ownership or equity interest in another entity can avail themselves of an exemption in rule 150.4(b)(2) to disaggregate the positions of the owned entity. To claim the exemption, a person needs to meet certain criteria and file a notice with the Commission in accordance with the provisions of the rule. The rules establish reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Rule 150.4(b)(2) (would establish an exemption for a person to disaggregate the positions of a separately organized entity); 150.4(b)(5) (would expand the exemption for independent account controllers to include additional eligible participants); and 150.4(b)(8) (provides an exemption from aggregation where the sharing of information between persons would cause either person to violate federal law). With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites comments on: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have a practical use; • The accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
