government securities broker or dealer, and Form G-FINW, a notification 
of termination of status as government securities broker or dealer. The 
Department of the Treasury has responsibility for establishing Form G-
FIN-4, a notification by persons associated with financial institutions 
that are government securities brokers or dealers, and G-FIN-5, a 
notification of termination of association with financial institutions 
that are government securities brokers or dealers.

    Comments are invited on: (a) whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information 
collection on respondents, including through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
    At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations 
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 
this collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
    Dated at Washington, D.C., this 14th day of March, 1997.
