SUMMARY: On December 20, 2004, the federal banking agencies (Board,

published a proposal for public comment to standardize and expand the

efficiency and effectiveness of Shared National Credit (SNC)

the Agencies will be able to use advanced credit risk analytics that
will be beneficial to the reporting banks and the Agencies. The
Agencies are extending the comment period to give the public additional
time to submit comments on the proposal.

DATES: Comments must be received by April 7, 2005.

submitted, interested parties may send comments to any one of the
Agencies without the need to send comments (or copies) to all of the
