On September 23, 2010, FSA published a proposed rule (75 FR 57866-57880) to implement four provisions of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). There was an inadvertent omission of the Paperwork Reduction Act information for special direct loan servicing in the document. Although the proposed rule does not propose any changes to the 7 CFR part 766, the changes in the proposed rule for equine loans would require use of the forms currently approved for uses related to 7 CFR part 766. Therefore, FSA needs to correct the following information add to the proposed rule published on September 23, 2010.
On page 57873, the following correction replaces the third sentences in the first paragraph under the heading Start Printed Page 66700“Paperwork Reduction Act”: The new information collection requests for Farm Loan Programs, General Administration; Direct Loan Making; regular Direct Loan Servicing; and special Direct Loan Servicing all result from expanding eligibility for EM to cover equine losses; and when approved will be incorporated into the existing approved ICRs (of the same titles) that will be up for a renewal this year.
On page 57874, add the following immediately following the Paperwork Reduction Act information for the “Direct Loan Servicing—Regular” (column 3, above the request for comments):
Title: Direct Loan Servicing—Special.
OMB Control Number: 0560-NEW.
Type of Request: New Collection.
Abstract: This information collection is required to support the proposed regulatory changes that include equine losses as eligible for EM. Some of the same information collection activities that will be used are currently approved for 7 CFR part 766, Direct Loan Servicing—Special, which establishes the requirements related to special servicing actions associated with direct loans including emergency loans. Emergency loan applicants tend to pose a higher economic risk of loss than those operations financed by commercial creditors. Information collections established in the regulations are necessary for FSA to actively supervise and provide credit counseling, management advice, and financial guidance.
Estimate of Burden: Public reporting for this collection of information is estimated to average 47 minutes per response.
Type of Respondents: Individuals or households, businesses or other for profit, and farms.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 7.
Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.5.
Estimated Total Annual Number of Responses: 18.
Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 26 hours.
Once this information collection request is approved, FSA will incorporate this collection into existing collections package 0560-0233.Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC, on October 21, 2010.
