Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) requests for extension to the previously approved collections of information discussed below.

Part 259.402 (17 CFR 259.402) under the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, as amended (“Act”), 15 U.S.C. 79, et seq., requires that public utility holding companies that are exempt from regulation under the Act file an annual financial report on Form U-3A-2.

Rule 2 under the Act, which implements section 3 of the Act, requires the information collection prescribed by Form U-3A-2. The Commission estimates that the total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden of collections for Form U-3A-2 is 227.5 hours (91 responses × 2.5 hours = 227.5 hours).

Part 259.313 (17 CFR 259.313) under the Act generally mandates standardized accounting and record keeping for mutual and subsidiary service companies of registered holding companies and the filing of annual financial reports on Form U-13-60.

Rules 93 and 94 under the Act, which implement Section 13 of the Act, requires the information collection prescribed by Form U-13-60. The Commission estimates that the total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden of collections for Form U-13-60 is 877.5 hours (65 responses × 13.5 hours = 877.5 hours).

The estimate of average burden hours are made for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or representative survey or study of the costs of complying with the requirements of Commission rules and forms.

Please direct general comments regarding the above information to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; and (ii) Kenneth A. Fogash, Acting Associate Executive Director/CIO, Office of Information Technology, Securities and Exchange Commission, 450 Fifth Street, NW., Washington, DC 20549. Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.
