This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
Agency: U.S. Census Bureau.
Title: State and Local Government Finance Forms.
OMB Control Number: 0607-0585.
Form Number(s): F-5, F-11, F-12, F-12(S), F-13, F-25, F-28, F-29, F-32, F-42.
Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Burden Hours: 74,358.
Number of Respondents: 31,409.
Average Hours per Response: 2 hours and 22 minutes average across all forms.
Needs and Uses: This survey provides government finance data for state and local governments. It is the only known comprehensive source of state and local government finance data collected on a nationwide scale using uniform definitions, concepts, and procedures. This survey is conducted annually, as a national census every five years, and as a sample survey in each of the four intervening years. The Census Bureau provides these data to the Federal Reserve Board for constructing the Nation's Flow of Funds Accounts and the Bureau of Economic Analysis for the National Income and Product Accounts. The data are also used to monitor the government sector of the economy and to formulate, develop, and review public policy. Federal agencies, state and local governments, and the private sector all use these data. The respondents to this survey are state and local government officials.
Our planned form changes for FY2011 include adding additional tax collection line items on the F-5 form and collecting one additional market value item on the F-11, F-12, and F-12(S) forms. The expected burden hour estimate will remain unchanged for these forms. In addition, for the 2012 retirement F-11, F-12, and F-12(S) forms, we plan to add additional collection detail for membership and benefits for defined benefit plans, receipts/payments for defined benefit plans, holdings and investment for defined benefit plans, and actuarial information for defined benefit plans (F-12 only). The burden hour estimate will increase from 2.0 to 2.5 hours for each of the respective forms.
Affected Public: State, local or tribal government.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Sections 161 and 182.
