Estimated annual burden hours: Account disclosures, 10,020 hours; Change in terms notice, 15,030 hours; Notices prior to maturity, 15,030 hours; Periodic statement disclosure and additional disclosure requirements for overdraft services, 80,160 hours; and Advertising and additional disclosure requirements for overdraft services, 5,010 hours. General description of report: The Truth in Savings Act (TISA) was contained in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991. The purpose of TISA and its implementing regulation is to assist consumers in comparing deposit accounts offered by institutions, principally through the disclosure of fees, the annual percentage yield (APY), and other account terms. TISA requires depository institutions to disclose key terms for deposit accounts at account opening, upon request, when certain changes in terms occur, and in periodic statements. It also includes rules about advertising for deposit accounts. TISA does not provide exemptions from compliance for small institutions. Legal authorization and confidentiality: Section 269 of TISA specifically authorizes the CFPB ‘‘to prescribe regulations’’ to carry out the purposes and provisions of the Act, as well as to adopt model forms and clauses for common disclosures to facilitate compliance. Regulation DD implements this statutory provision. The Board’s imposition of the disclosure requirements on Board-supervised institutions is authorized by Section 270 of TISA. An institution’s disclosure and recordkeeping obligations under Regulation DD are mandatory. The public disclosure requirements of FR DD are not confidential. The records maintained under recordkeeping requirements of FR DD would be maintained at each banking organization, and the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a financial institution, this information would be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in ‘‘examination, operating, or condition reports’’ obtained in the bank supervisory process.

Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, With Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Provisions Associated with Real Estate Appraisal Standards.1 Agency form number: FR Y–30. OMB control number: 7100–0250. Frequency: Event-generated. Respondents: State member banks (SMBs) and nonbank subsidiaries of bank holding companies (BHCs).

Estimated annual burden hours: Recordkeeping, SMBs, 25,837 hours; nonbank subsidiaries of BHCs, 2,346 hours. Disclosure, SMBs, 62 hours; nonbank subsidiaries of BHCs, 94 hours. General description of report: Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) (12 U.S.C. 3331 et seq.) requires that, for federally related transactions,2 regulated institutions obtain real estate appraisals performed by certified or licensed appraisers in conformance with uniform appraisal 1 This information collection was previously titled Recordkeeping Requirements Associated with Real Estate Appraisal Standards for Federally Related Transactions Pursuant to Regulations H and Y (FR H–4; OMB No. 7100–0250). Under the proposal, this information collection would no longer include references to section 208.51 of the Board’s Regulation H (12 CFR 208.51), which is cleared by the Board as part of the FR H–5 clearance (OMB No. 7100 0261). This change would not affect the burden estimate for this collection of information, as prior burden calculations for the FR H–4 have not included any burden associated with section 208.51 of Regulation H. Additionally, as described in this Supporting Statement, the proposal would replace references to section 208.50 of Regulation H with references to subpart G of Regulation Y as the source for certain appraisal standards for state member banks. Therefore, the Board has modified the title and agency tracking number of the FR H–4 information collection to reflect that it will no longer account for provisions of Regulation H. 2 A ‘‘federally related transaction’’ means any real estate-related financial transaction which (A) a federal financial institutions regulatory agency or the Resolution Trust Corporation engages in, contracts for, or regulates; and (B) requires the services of an appraiser. 12 U.S.C. 3350(4). The term ‘‘real estate-related financial transaction’’ means any transaction involving (A) the sale, lease, purchase, investment in or exchange of real property, including interests in property, or the financing thereof; (B) the refinancing of real property or interests in real property; and (C) the use of real property or interests in property as security for a loan or investment, including mortgage-backed securities. 12 U.S.C. 3350(5).

The Board and other supervisory agencies also have issued Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines (the Guidelines) that convey supervisory expectations relating to real estate appraisals and evaluations used to support real estate-related financial transactions.4 These Guidelines recommend that institutions adopt certain policies and procedures to ensure compliance with Title XI of FIRREA and Regulation Y. Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise the FR Y–30 to account for the collections of information contained in the Guidelines. Although previous OMB Supporting Statements for the FR H–4, the former agency tracking number for this clearance, referred to the Guidelines, the Board did not formally clear these collections of information or account for their corresponding burden. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR Y–30 is authorized pursuant to Title XI of FIRREA.3 The obligation to respond is mandatory. The recordkeeping provisions contained in the Guidelines, which is nonbinding, are voluntary.4 Because FR Y–30 records would be maintained at each banking organization, the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a financial institution, this information may be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in ‘‘examination, operating, or condition reports’’ obtained in the bank supervisory process.5 In addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 4 for the FOIA, which protects commercial or financial information obtained from a person that is privileged or confidential.6 3 12 U.S.C. 3339.

Written comments can be mailed to: GSA San Luis EIS, c/o LMI, 7940 Jones Branch Drive, Tysons, VA 22102. All comments must be received by November 9, 2020. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The San Luis I LPOE is located on the U.S.-Mexico international border in the City of San Luis, Arizona. It is the westernmost LPOE in Arizona and is approximately four miles from the California border. The San Luis I LPOE was built in 1982 to accommodate noncommercial traffic to and from PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Mexico. The facilities at the LPOE are in deteriorated condition and are inadequate for the present volume of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. There has been a 58 percent increase in the number of personal vehicles processed since 2010. The higher volume and outdated facilities creates long wait times, leading to traffic backups in downtown San Luis. GSA is proposing to expand and modernize the San Luis I LPOE to correct operational deficiencies imposed by deteriorating building conditions and improve the LPOE’s functionality, capacity, and security. Three action alternatives, the Proposed Action, Alternative 1, and Alternative 2; and the No Action Alternative, are evaluated in the FEIS. Proposed Action Alternative— Demolition and Redevelopment. GSA would acquire the land adjacent to the western end of the LPOE, the former Friendship Park, and the LPOE would be reconfigured to streamline CBP operations and inspection processes. GSA would demolish the old, deteriorated buildings and construct new buildings and infrastructure on the expanded site to accommodate the increasing volume of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. The Proposed Action would be implemented in a phased approach to alleviate potential disruptions to operations at the LPOE. Alternative 1—Renovate and Modernize. GSA would not acquire former Friendship Park, but would renovate and modernize all existing facilities and infrastructure at the LPOE. The LPOE layout would remain as currently configured, and current traffic patterns entering and leaving the LPOE would remain the same. Alternative 2—Relocate Southbound POV Processing. GSA would acquire Friendship Park and construct new facilities as described under the Proposed Action, however the outgoing traffic would be routed directly south from Archibald Street (through the former Friendship Park site) to Avenida Morelos in Mexico. The rerouting of southbound traveling vehicles directly south from Archibald Street would alleviate the need for vehicles to turn left onto Urtuzuastegui Street. No Action Alternative—GSA would not renovate or modernize any portion of the LPOE. The LPOE would remain as-is and continue its operations in facilities as they are currently configured.

Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, With 
Revision, the Following Information Collection

    Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Provisions Associated 
with Real Estate Appraisal Standards.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This information collection was previously titled 
Recordkeeping Requirements Associated with Real Estate Appraisal 
Standards for Federally Related Transactions Pursuant to Regulations 
H and Y (FR H-4; OMB No. 7100-0250). Under the proposal, this 
information collection would no longer include references to section 
208.51 of the Board's Regulation H (12 CFR 208.51), which is cleared 
by the Board as part of the FR H-5 clearance (OMB No. 7100 0261). 
This change would not affect the burden estimate for this collection 
of information, as prior burden calculations for the FR H-4 have not 
included any burden associated with section 208.51 of Regulation H. 
Additionally, as described in this Supporting Statement, the 
proposal would replace references to section 208.50 of Regulation H 
with references to subpart G of Regulation Y as the source for 
certain appraisal standards for state member banks. Therefore, the 
Board has modified the title and agency tracking number of the FR H-
4 information collection to reflect that it will no longer account 
for provisions of Regulation H.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Agency form number: FR Y-30.
    OMB control number: 7100-0250.
    Frequency: Event-generated.
    Respondents: State member banks (SMBs) and nonbank subsidiaries of 
bank holding companies (BHCs).
    Estimated number of respondents: SMBs, 740; nonbank subsidiaries of 
BHCs, 1,126.
    Estimated average hours per response: SMBs, 5 minutes; nonbank 
subsidiaries of BHCs, 5 minutes.
    Estimated annual burden hours: Recordkeeping, SMBs, 25,837 hours; 
nonbank subsidiaries of BHCs, 2,346 hours. Disclosure, SMBs, 62 hours; 
nonbank subsidiaries of BHCs, 94 hours.
    General description of report: Title XI of the Financial 
Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) (12 
U.S.C. 3331 et seq.) requires that, for federally related 
transactions,\2\ regulated institutions obtain real estate appraisals 
performed by certified or licensed appraisers in conformance with 
uniform appraisal standards.\3\ The Board's regulations implementing 
Title XI of FIRREA, contained in the Board's Regulation Y, include 
certain recordkeeping requirements that apply to SMBs, BHCs, and 
nonbank subsidiaries of BHCs that extend mortgage credit (together, 
institutions). The Board and other supervisory agencies also have 
issued Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines (the Guidelines) 
that convey supervisory expectations relating to real estate appraisals 
and evaluations used to support real estate-related financial 
transactions.\4\ These Guidelines recommend that institutions adopt 
certain policies and procedures to ensure compliance with Title XI of 
FIRREA and Regulation Y.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ A ``federally related transaction'' means any real estate-
related financial transaction which (A) a federal financial 
institutions regulatory agency or the Resolution Trust Corporation 
engages in, contracts for, or regulates; and (B) requires the 
services of an appraiser. 12 U.S.C. 3350(4). The term ``real estate-
related financial transaction'' means any transaction involving (A) 
the sale, lease, purchase, investment in or exchange of real 
property, including interests in property, or the financing thereof; 
(B) the refinancing of real property or interests in real property; 
and (C) the use of real property or interests in property as 
security for a loan or investment, including mortgage-backed 
securities. 12 U.S.C. 3350(5).
    \3\ 12 U.S.C. 3339. The Board also has the authority to require 
reports from bank holding companies (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)) and state 
member banks (12 U.S.C. 248(a) and 324).
    \4\ See SR 18-5/CA 18-7: Interagency Statement Clarifying the 
Role of Supervisory Guidance (Sept. 11, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise the FR Y-30 to 
account for the collections of information contained in the Guidelines. 
Although previous OMB Supporting Statements for the FR H-4, the former 
agency tracking number for this clearance, referred to the Guidelines, 
the Board did not formally clear these collections of information or 
account for their corresponding burden.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR Y-30 is authorized 
pursuant to Title XI of FIRREA.\3\ The obligation to respond is 
mandatory. The recordkeeping provisions contained in the Guidelines, 
which is nonbinding, are voluntary.\4\
    Because FR Y-30 records would be maintained at each banking 
organization, the Freedom of Information Act (``FOIA'') would only be 
implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the 
examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the 
records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or 
supervision of a financial institution, this information may be 
considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which 
protects information contained in ``examination, operating, or
