Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY:  The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the FDIC) is 
hereby publishing items for the April 2000 Regulatory Agenda. The 
agenda contains information about FDIC's current and projected 
rulemakings, existing regulations under review, and completed 
rulemakings.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:  Persons identified under regulations 
listed in the agenda. Unless otherwise noted, the address for all FDIC 
staff identified in the agenda is Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation, 550 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20429.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  Twice each year, the FDIC publishes an 
agenda of regulations to inform the public of its regulatory actions 
and to enhance public participation in the rulemaking process. 
Publication of the agenda is in accordance with both the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) and the FDIC statement of policy 
entitled ``Development and Review of FDIC Rules and Regulations.'' The 
FDIC amends its regulations under the general rulemaking authority 
prescribed in section 9 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 
1819) and under specific authority granted by the Act and other 
statutes.

     A number of the actions identified in this agenda have been 
developed following regulatory reviews required by the Gramm-Leach-
Bliley Act, or to implement other recent statutory mandates. Many 
of the FDIC's regulatory actions are coordinated with other Federal 
regulators of financial institutions, primarily the Office of the 
Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Board of Governors of the 
Federal Reserve System (FRS), and the Office of Thrift Supervision 
(OTS). In some cases, the FDIC also coordinates with the National 
Credit Union Administration (NCUA).

     Interested persons may petition the FDIC for the issuance, 
amendment, or repeal of any regulation by submitting a written 
petition to the Executive Secretary, Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation, Washington, DC 20429. Petitioners should include 
complete and concise statements of their interest in the subject 
matter and reasons why the petitions should be granted.

 Robert E. Feldman,

Executive Secretary.

Stat 1790; 105 Stat 2236

CFR Citation: 12 CFR 325

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This rulemaking is sponsored jointly by the OCC, the FRS, the 
FDIC, and the OTS. The rulemaking revises risk-based capital standards 
by addressing the regulatory capital treatment of recourse obligations 
and direct credit substitutes that expose banks, bank holding 
companies, and thrifts to credit risk. The revision treats recourse 
obligations and direct credit substitutes more consistently than under 
the agencies' current risk-based capital standards. In addition, the 
revision allows the agencies to use credit ratings and certain 
alternative approaches to match the risk-based capital requirement more 
closely to a banking organization's relative risk of loss in asset 
securitizations. The rulemaking also requires the sponsor of a 
revolving credit securitization that involves an early amortization 
feature to hold capital against the amount of assets under management, 
i.e., the off balance sheet securitized receivables. The rulemaking is 
intended to result in more consistent treatment of recourse obligations 
and similar transactions among the agencies, more consistent risk-based 
capital treatment for certain types of transactions involving similar 
risk, and capital requirements that more closely reflect a banking 
organization's relative exposure to credit risk.

CFR Citation: 12 CFR 308

Abstract: The Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act (PFCRA) requires 
specified Federal agencies to follow certain procedures to recover 
penalties and assessments against persons who file false claims and 
statements. The Resolution Trust Corporation Completion Act of 1993 
subjects the FDIC to the requirements of the PFCRA. An interagency task 
force was established by the President's Council on Integrity and 
Efficiency to develop model regulations for implementing the PFCRA. 
This regulatory action adopts, with minor variations, the model

regulations set forth by the Council's task force.

Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, March 11, 2000.

Abstract: This rulemaking amends the FDIC's regulations governing 
activities and investments of insured state banks to require that 
notices be filed before insured state nonmember banks conduct 
activities through a subsidiary if those activities must be conducted 
in a financial subsidiary of a national bank. This subpart allows the 
FDIC to impose standards and prudential safeguards when insured state 
nonmember banks engage in activities that a national bank must conduct 
in a financial subsidiary. It also requires insured state nonmember 
banks to meet the mandatory CRA compliance requirement before engaging 
in these activities under this subpart. In addition, this subpart 
contains the required prudential separations between certain securities 
affiliates and insured state nonmember banks. The rulemaking also 
removes and reserves the provisions addressing, ``Securities Activities 
of Subsidiaries of Insured State Banks: Bank Transactions with 
Affiliated Securities Companies.'' The effect of these amendments will 
be to require banks to notify the FDIC prior to conducting securities 
or other activities through subsidiaries that are not permissible for 
national banks directly. The rulemaking also adds certain technical 
amendments to correct missing citations or incorrect cross-references 
and similar matters.

nature and are necessary to ensure that the rules are consistent with 
statutory provisions and procedural changes that have occurred since 
the rules were first adopted. The FDIC also is making a conforming, 
technical amendment to its deposit insurance regulations (12 CFR 330) 
that was inadvertently omitted from a regulatory action effective on 
April 1, 1999.

CFR Citation: 12 CFR 327

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This rulemaking made several changes to FDIC's regulations 
governing assessments. The FDIC changed the reporting date used to 
determine the capital component of the assessment risk classification 
assigned to FDIC-insured depository institutions. That date moved 
closer by one calendar quarter to the assessment period for which the 
capital component is assigned. The FDIC also shortened from 30 days to 
15 days the prior notice that the FDIC sends to institutions advising 
them of their assessment risk classification for the following 
semiannual assessment period. The same reduction also was applied to 
the invoice sent by the FDIC each quarter showing the amount of the 
assessment payment due for the next quarterly collection. At the other 
end of the process, the FDIC increased from 30 days to 90 days the time 
within which an institution may request review of its assessment risk 
classification.
