SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

NCUA is reinstating the collection for 3133-0168. The collection of information requirement is for those state chartered federal insured credit unions seeking a waiver from the borrowing limit. These credit unions must submit a detailed safety and soundness analysis, a proposed aggregate amount, a letter from the state regulator approving the request and an explanation of the need for the waiver to the NCUA Regional Director. This collection of information is necessary to protect the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (“Fund”). The NCUA Board has determined that borrowing in excess of 50 percent of paid-in and unimpaired capital and surplus may cause an undue risk to the Fund and a loss of confidence in the credit union system. The NCUA must be made aware of and be able to monitor those credit unions seeking a waiver from the requirement. There is no change in burden hours from previous submission.

The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
