On April 6, 2007, the agencies published a notice requesting public comment for sixty days on the extension, with revision, of the Transfer Agent Registration and Amendment Form (TA-1). In addition, OTS seeks to implement an amendment to section 3(a)(34) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act), pursuant to a provision of the Financial Services Regulatory Relief Act of 2006 (FSRRA), enacted on October 13, 2006. This implementation would institute the use of the TA-1 for savings associations intending to engage in transfer agent activities. Currently, the OCC, FDIC, and OTS are soliciting comment concerning the extension, with revision, of the Transfer Agent Registration and Amendment Form. The Board has approved this information collection under its delegated authority from OMB.

By letter dated November 9, 2006, Governor Edward G. Rendell of Pennsylvania requested that the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) enter into an Agreement with the Commonwealth as authorized by Section 274 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (Act).
