SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 29, 2005, the Agencies published 
for comment the proposed Guidance, which relates to mortgage loan 
products that allow borrowers to defer payment of principal and, 
sometimes, interest, including ``interest-only'' mortgages and 
``payment option'' adjustable rate mortgages. 70 FR 77249. The proposal 
stated that any comments on the proposal must be submitted on or before 
February 27, 2006.
    In response to the solicitation of comments, the Agencies have 
received a number of comments, including requests from several 
financial institutions and trade associations that represent financial 
institutions to extend the comment period. In light of the wide public 
interest in the proposal and the Agencies' desire to provide the public 
with sufficient time to consider the proposal and formulate any 
comments, the Agencies have decided to extend the comment period on the 
proposal by 30 days. The comment period will now run through March 29, 
2006.
