    notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of

    information, including each proposed extension of an existing

    collection of information, and to allow 60 days for public comment in

    response to the notice. This notice solicits comments on Regulations

    Governing Bankruptcies of Commodity Brokers.

    DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before November 10, 2008.

    ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to William Penner, Division of

    Clearing & Intermediary Oversight, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading

    (202) 418-5536; e-mail: wpenner@cftc.gov.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, Federal agencies must obtain

    approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each

    collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ``Collection of

    information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and

    includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public

    submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party.

    Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires

    Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register

    concerning each proposed collection of information, including each

    proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before

    submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this

    requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection

    of information listed below.

    With respect to the following collection of information, the CFTC

    invites comments on:

    Whether the proposed collection of information is

    necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the

    Commission, including whether the information will have a practical

    use;

    The accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the burden of

    the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the

    methodology and assumptions used;

    Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of

    the information to be collected; and

    Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information

    on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate

    automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection

    techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting

    electronic submission of responses.

    protect, to the extent possible, the property of the public in the case
