Rule 54; SEC File No. 270-376; OMB Control No. 3235-0427.
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 requests for extension of the previously approved collections of information discussed below.
Sections 32 and 33 of the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, as amended (“Act”), and rules 53 and 54 under the Act, permit, among other things, utility holding companies registered under the Act to make direct or indirect investments in exempt wholesale generators (“EWGs”) and foreign utility companies (“FUCOs”), as defined in sections 32 and 33 of the Act, respectively, without the prior approval of the Commission, if certain conditions are met. Rule 54 does not create a reporting burden for respondents.
It is estimated that there will be no burden hours associated with rule 54. Start Printed Page 72226
These estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of SEC rules and forms.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
General comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, or email to: David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.
