Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, Without Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Quarterly Report of Interest Rates on Selected Direct Consumer Installment Loans and Quarterly Report of Credit Card Plans. Agency form number: FR 2835; FR 2835a. OMB control number: 7100–0085. Frequency: Quarterly. Respondents: Commercial banks. Estimated number of respondents: FR 2835: 150; FR 2835a: 50. Estimated average hours per response: FR 2835: .29; FR 2835a: .50. Estimated annual burden hours: FR 2835: 176; FR 2835a: 100. General description of report: The FR 2835 collects information from a sample of commercial banks on interest rates charged on loans for new vehicles and loans for other consumer goods and personal expenses. The FR 2835a collects information on two measures of credit card interest rates from a sample of commercial banks with $1 billion or more in credit card receivables and a representative group of smaller issuers. The data from these reports help the Board analyze current household financial conditions and the implications of these conditions for household spending and, as such, these data provide valuable input to the monetary policymaking process. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2835 and the FR 2835a are authorized by sections 2A and 11 of the Federal Reserve Act (‘‘FRA’’). Section 2A of the FRA requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee 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 Section 11 of the FRA authorizes the Board to require reports from each member bank as it may deem necessary and authorizes the Board to prescribe reports of liabilities and assets from insured depository institutions to enable the Board to discharge its responsibility to monitor and control monetary and credit aggregates.2 The obligation to respond to both the FR 2835 and FR 2835a is voluntary. Most of the information collected through the FR 2835 is not considered confidential; however, to the extent narrative information submitted to explain large fluctuations in reported data contains nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent, such information may be kept confidential pursuant to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).3 Individual respondent data collected through the FR 2835a may be considered confidential pursuant to FOIA exemption 4 to the extent the response contains nonpublic commercial or financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent.4 Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, November 16, 2020.

Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, With Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: GovernmentAdministered, General-Use Prepaid Card Surveys. Agency form number: FR 3063. OMB control number: 7100–0343. Frequency: Annually. Respondents: Depository institutions that administer general-use prepaid cards. Estimated number of respondents: 15. Estimated average hours per response: 10. Estimated annual burden hours: 150. General description of report: The issuer survey (FR 3063a) collects data from issuers of governmentadministered, general-use prepaid cards including information on the pre-paid card program, the number of cards outstanding, card funding, ATM transactions, purchase transactions, fees paid by issuers to third parties, interchange fees, and cardholder fees. The issuer survey (FR 3063a) is PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73709 mandatory. The government survey (FR 3063b), which is being discontinued, was originally designed to collect data from state governments, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories (collectively ‘‘state governments’’), and municipal government offices located within the United States (local government offices) that administer general-use prepaid card payment programs. It was intended that the FR 3063b survey would collect similar information from state governments and local government offices to supplement the information collected from card issuers in the FR 3063a survey on the usage of general-use prepaid cards in federal, state or local governmentadministered payment programs. However, the government survey was voluntary and, ultimately, did not end up being utilized to collect information from state governments or local government offices because relevant information on the use of prepaid cards was obtained from the issuer survey. The Board uses data from the FR 3063a survey to support an annual report to Congress on the prevalence of use of general-use prepaid cards in federal, state, and local governmentadministered payment programs and on the interchange and cardholder fees charged with respect to such use of such cards. Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise and streamline the FR 3063a reporting structure to reduce burden on respondents by deleting various questions, which are no longer necessary to support the Board’s annual report. The Board believes that the proposed structure would reduce reporting burden without significantly compromising the value of the data collected. The proposed revisions to the FR 3063a would be effective for the data collection administered during the first half of 2021 for calendar year 2020 data. In addition, the Board proposes to discontinue the FR 3063b. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The issuer survey is authorized by subsection 920(a)(7) of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, 15 U.S.C. 1693o–2(a)(7), which was added by section 1075(a) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This subsection requires the Board to submit an annual report to Congress on the prevalence of the use of general-use prepaid cards in federal, state or local government-administered payment programs and the interchange transaction fees and card-holder fees charged with respect to the use of such general-use prepaid cards (15 U.S.C. 1693o–2(a)(7)(D)). It also provides the Board with authority to require issuers E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1 73710 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 224 / Thursday, November 19, 2020 / Notices to provide information to enable the Board to carry out the provisions of the subsection (15 U.S.C. 1693o–2(a)(3)(B)). The obligation of issuers to respond to the issuer survey is mandatory. The Board generally regards the information collected from each individual issuer on the FR 3063a survey as confidential commercial and financial information, which is protected by exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). The Board, however, may publicly release aggregate or summary information in a way that does not reveal the individual issuer. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, November 16, 2020.

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

    Report title: Government-Administered, General-Use Prepaid Card 
Surveys.
    Agency form number: FR 3063.
    OMB control number: 7100-0343.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Respondents: Depository institutions that administer general-use 
prepaid cards.
    Estimated number of respondents: 15.
    Estimated average hours per response: 10.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 150.
    General description of report: The issuer survey (FR 3063a) 
collects data from issuers of government-administered, general-use 
prepaid cards including information on the pre-paid card program, the 
number of cards outstanding, card funding, ATM transactions, purchase 
transactions, fees paid by issuers to third parties, interchange fees, 
and cardholder fees. The issuer survey (FR 3063a) is mandatory. The 
government survey (FR 3063b), which is being discontinued, was 
originally designed to collect data from state governments, the 
District of Columbia, and U.S. territories (collectively ``state 
governments''), and municipal government offices located within the 
United States (local government offices) that administer general-use 
prepaid card payment programs. It was intended that the FR 3063b survey 
would collect similar information from state governments and local 
government offices to supplement the information collected from card 
issuers in the FR 3063a survey on the usage of general-use prepaid 
cards in federal, state or local government-administered payment 
programs. However, the government survey was voluntary and, ultimately, 
did not end up being utilized to collect information from state 
governments or local government offices because relevant information on 
the use of prepaid cards was obtained from the issuer survey.
    The Board uses data from the FR 3063a survey to support an annual 
report to Congress on the prevalence of use of general-use prepaid 
cards in federal, state, and local government-administered payment 
programs and on the interchange and cardholder fees charged with 
respect to such use of such cards.
    Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise and streamline the 
FR 3063a reporting structure to reduce burden on respondents by 
deleting various questions, which are no longer necessary to support 
the Board's annual report. The Board believes that the proposed 
structure would reduce reporting burden without significantly 
compromising the value of the data collected. The proposed revisions to 
the FR 3063a would be effective for the data collection administered 
during the first half of 2021 for calendar year 2020 data. In addition, 
the Board proposes to discontinue the FR 3063b.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The issuer survey is 
authorized by subsection 920(a)(7) of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, 
15 U.S.C. 1693o-2(a)(7), which was added by section 1075(a) of the 
Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This 
subsection requires the Board to submit an annual report to Congress on 
the prevalence of the use of general-use prepaid cards in federal, 
state or local government-administered payment programs and the 
interchange transaction fees and card-holder fees charged with respect 
to the use of such general-use prepaid cards (15 U.S.C. 1693o-
2(a)(7)(D)). It also provides the Board with authority to require 
issuers

[[Page 73710]]

to provide information to enable the Board to carry out the provisions 
of the subsection (15 U.S.C. 1693o-2(a)(3)(B)). The obligation of 
issuers to respond to the issuer survey is mandatory. The Board 
generally regards the information collected from each individual issuer 
on the FR 3063a survey as confidential commercial and financial 
information, which is protected by exemption 4 of the Freedom of 
Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). The Board, however, may publicly 
release aggregate or summary information in a way that does not reveal 
the individual issuer.
