Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 245 / Friday, December 20, 2019 / Notices On September 27, 2019, the FTC sought comment on the information collection requirements associated with the Rule. 84 FR 51160. The FTC received no comments that were germane to the issues that the agency sought comment on pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) renewal request. Pursuant to OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the preexisting clearance for the Rule. For more details about the Rule requirements and the basis for the calculations summarized below, see 84 FR 51160. As required by OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment. Likely Respondents: Lead generators and rate aggregators. Estimated Annual Hours Burden: 1,500 hours. • Derived from 1,000 likely respondents × approximately 3 hours for each respondent per year to do these tasks = 3,000 hours. • Since the FTC shares enforcement authority with the CFPB for Regulation N, the FTC’s allotted PRA burden is 1,500 annual hours. Estimated Annual Labor Cost Burden: $24,375, which is derived from 1,500 hours × $16.25 per hour.9 Request for Comment jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Your comment—including your name and your state—will be placed on the public record of this proceeding at the https://www.regulations.gov website.
