Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request
In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), of which the agencies are members, has approved the agencies' publication for public comment of a proposal to revise and extend for three years the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic and Foreign Offices (FFIEC 031), the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only (FFIEC 041), and the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only and Total Assets Less than $1 Billion (FFIEC 051), which are currently approved collections of information. The Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income are commonly referred to as Call Reports. The proposed revisions in this notice would implement reporting changes in the Call Reports consistent with the agencies' proposed rule to develop a simplified alternative measure of capital adequacy, the community bank leverage ratio, for certain qualifying community banks with less than $10 billion in total consolidated assets, consistent with section 201 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. The proposed revisions in this notice would also implement reporting changes consistent with the FDIC's proposed rule to amend the deposit insurance assessment regulations to apply the community bank leverage ratio framework to the deposit insurance assessment system. The proposed revisions in this notice would take effect the same quarter as the effective date of the forthcoming final rules on the community bank leverage ratio and the related deposit insurance assessment revisions. At the end of the comment period for this notice, the FFIEC and the agencies will review any comments received to determine whether to modify the proposal in response to comments. If modifications are made to the proposed community bank leverage ratio or deposit insurance assessment rules when those rules are adopted in final form, the agencies would modify the Call Report proposal to incorporate such changes. As required by the PRA, the agencies will then publish a second Federal Register notice on the proposal for a 30- day comment period and submit the final Call Reports to OMB for review and approval.

Active Service Pay
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its adjudication regulations.

This proposed change would reduce the financial impact on veterans associated with receipt of VA disability compensation and active service pay by allowing VA to make necessary adjustments as close in time to the receipt of active service pay as possible. VA also proposes an amendment to clarify how VA adjudicates benefit adjustments based on receipt of active service pay for certain types of service.
Program Year (PY) 2019 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Allotments; PY 2019 Wagner-Peyser Act Final Allotments and PY 2019 Workforce Information Grants
This notice announces allotments for PY 2019 for WIOA Title I Youth, Adult and Dislocated Worker Activities programs; final allotments for Employment Service (ES) activities under the Wagner- Peyser Act for PY 2019 and the allotments of Workforce Information Grants to States for PY 2019. WIOA allotments for states and the state final allotments for the Wagner-Peyser Act are based on formulas defined in their respective statutes. WIOA requires allotments for the Outlying Areas to be competitively awarded rather than based on a formula determined by the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) as occurred under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). However, for PY 2019, the Department of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 waives the competition requirement, and the Secretary is using the discretionary formula rationale and methodology for allocating PY 2019 funds for the Outlying Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States Virgin Islands) that was published in the Federal Register on February 17, 2000. WIOA specifically included the Republic of Palau as an Outlying Area, except during any period for which the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Education determine that a Compact of Free Association is in effect and contains provisions for training and education assistance prohibiting the assistance provided under WIOA; no such determinations prohibiting assistance have been made. The formula that the Department of Labor (Department) used for PY 2019 is the same formula used in PY 2018 and is described in the section on Youth Activities program allotments. The Department invites comments only on the formula used to allot funds to the Outlying Areas.
