SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to renew the following currently-approved collections of information:

1. Title: Public Disclosure by Banks.

OMB Number: 3064-0090.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks.

Frequency of Response: Annually.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 4,084.

Estimated Time per Response: 0.5

Total Annual Burden: 2,042 hours.

General Description: 12 CFR part 350 requires a bank to notify the general public, and in some instances shareholders, that financial disclosure statements are available by request. Required disclosures consist of financial reports for the current and preceding year, which can be photocopied directly from the year-end call reports. The FDIC may also require, on a case-by-case basis, that descriptions of enforcement actions be included in disclosure statements. This regulation allows, but does not require, the inclusion of management discussion and analysis.

2. Title: Activities and Investments of Insured State Banks.

OMB Number: 3064-0111.

Form Numbers: None.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 110.

Estimated Time per Response: 8 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 880 hours.

General Description: Section 24 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act), 12 U.S.C. 1831a, limits investments and other activities in which state banks may engage as principal to those permissible for national banks and those approved by the FDIC under procedures set forth in Part 362 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, 12 CFR part 362. With certain exceptions, section 24 of the FDI Act limits the direct equity investments of state chartered banks to equity investments that are permissible for national banks. In addition, the statute prohibits an insured state bank from directly engaging, as a principal, in any activity that is not permissible for a national bank, or indirectly through a subsidiary in an activity that is not permissible for a subsidiary of a national bank, unless such bank meets its minimum capital requirements and the FDIC determines that the activity does not pose significant risk to the Deposit Insurance Fund. The FDIC can make such a determination for exception by regulation or by order. The FDIC's implementing regulation for section 24 is 12 CFR part 362. This regulation details the activities that insured state nonmember banks or their subsidiaries may engage in, under certain criteria and conditions, and identifies the information that banks must furnish to the FDIC in order to obtain the FDIC's approval or nonobjection.

3. Title: Privacy of Consumer Financial Information.

OMB Number: 3064-0136.

Total Annual Burden: 162,456 hours.

General Description: The elements of this collection are required under section 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Public Law 106-102. The collection mandates notice requirements and restrictions on a financial institution's ability to disclose nonpublic personal information about consumers to nonaffiliated third parties.

4. Title: Applicant Background Questionnaire.
