The Commission plans to conduct a study to update and expand on the divestiture study it conducted in the mid-1990s to assess the effectiveness of the Commission's policies and practices regarding remedial orders where the Commission has permitted a merger but required a divestiture or other remedy, and identify the factors that contributed to the Commission successfully or unsuccessfully achieving the remedial goals of the orders. This is the first of two notices required under the Paperwork Reduction Act (``PRA'') in which the Commission seeks public comment on its proposed study before requesting Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') review of, and clearance for, the collection of information discussed herein.
