Abstract: On December 13, 1999, the agencies issued the Interagency

The agencies are now in the process of requesting that OMB renew its
approval of those information collections. The agencies are not
proposing any change to the underlying information collections.
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System has
participated in the development and review of this information
collection and will process its extension under its Paperwork Reduction
Act delegated authority.

Affected Public: Business, for-profit institutions, and non-profit

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required

information displays a valid OMB control number.
