SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to renew the following currently approved collection of information:

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

OMB Number: 3064-0111.

Form Number: None.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks and insured state savings associations.

Activities and Investments of Insured State BanksReportingMandatory4618.00On Occasion368
Total Hourly Burden368 hours

General Description of Collection: Section 24 of the Federal Deposit Insurance (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 non-objection. Section 28(a), 12 U.S.C. 1831e, similarly limits the investments and activities of state savings associations and their service corporations to those permitted by federal savings associations and their service corporations, absent FDIC approval.

There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. The overall reduction in burden hours is the result of economic fluctuation. In particular, the number of respondents has decreased while the hours per response and frequency of responses have remained the same.
