SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a request for an extension of a

    Abstract: This collection of information involves recordkeeping and 
notice requirements in the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's 
(``CFTC'' or ``Commission'') bankruptcy rules for commodity broker 
liquidations, 17 CFR part 190. These requirements are intended to 
facilitate the effective, efficient, and fair conduct of liquidation 
proceedings for commodity brokers and to protect the interests of 
customers in these proceedings.
    Burden Statement: Commodity broker liquidations occur at 
unpredictable and irregular intervals; for purposes of estimating 
information collection burden, this notice assumes an average of one 
commodity broker liquidation

collection burden will vary in particular commodity broker liquidations 
depending on the size of the commodity broker, the extent to which 
accounts are able to be quickly transferred, and other factors specific 
to the circumstances of the liquidation. The Commission estimates the
