The Board published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on August 31, 2009 (74 FR 44814). No comments were received. However, the first reporting period under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has since occurred, and the Board has therefore been able to modify its estimated number of respondents accordingly. The Board has submitted the described information collection to OMB for approval.

In response to this notice, comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Board; (b) the accuracy of the Board's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of information technology; and (e) whether small businesses are affected by this collection.
