Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.
_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is hereby publishing items for the spring 2003 Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions. 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 the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). 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 to implement provisions of 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,  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.


Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Robert E. Feldman,
Executive Secretary.

Abstract: In 1994, the FDIC sought comment on a proposal to revise the assessment base used by insured institutions to determine the premium paid for deposit insurance. That initiative did not lead to a proposed rule. Instead, the FDIC plans to revisit the issue with a new advance notice of proposed rulemaking on alternative options for the deposit component of the assessment base and on options regarding the float deduction and use of average daily deposit balances.
