Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information

including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection,

ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to

received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the
collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and
approval. Comments submitted in response to this notice also will be
summarized or included in the FDIC's requests to OMB for renewal of
