Final Rule and Request for Comment involving ``Financial Education
Programs That Include the Provision of Bank Products and Services'' to
resubmit to the FDIC his or her comment relating to this action. We are
taking this action because due to a technical software error, a public

November 24, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In January 2003, the interagency eRulemaking
Program launched www.regulations.gov to provide citizens with an online
portal to learn about proposed regulations and to submit their comments
on the rulemaking process. For the first time, American citizens could
access and comment on all proposed Federal regulations from a single
Web site.
A software problem at www.regulations.gov resulted in the non-
transmittal of public comments to

[[Page 63339]]

some federal agencies from March 22, 2008 through September 8, 2008.
The software error affected only a few federal agencies, one of which
was the FDIC. The FDIC has been assured that the software problem has
been corrected and that safeguards are now in place to ensure this
error will not occur for future rulemakings.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\1\ Questions about the Federal eRulemaking Portal may be
directed to John Moses, Chief, eRulemaking Program Branch,
Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW.,
Washington, DC 20460, (202) 566-1352, Moses.John@epamail.epa.gov.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Specifically, because of the software problem, the FDIC has been
notified that a total of two public comments relevant to FDIC
rulemakings were filed using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at
www.regulations.gov, but were not submitted to the FDIC.\2\ The FDIC
was advised that one of the missing comments was filed on July 9, 2008.
This missing comment related to the FDIC's Interim Final Rule and
Request for Comment involving ``Financial Education Programs That
Include the Provision of Bank Products and Services.'' \3\ The Federal
eRulemaking Portal at www.regulations.gov has been unable to retrieve
this comment or identify the commenter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\2\ The other missing comment was filed on April 14, 2008. This
comment related to the FDIC's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
involving ``Processing of Deposit Accounts in the Event of an
Insured Depository Institution Failure and Large-Bank Deposit
Insurance Determination Modernization.'' 73 FR 2364 (Jan. 14, 2008).
The FDIC subsequently bifurcated the proposed rule, and published an
Interim Rule with Request for Comments relating to the ``Processing
of Deposit Accounts in the Event of an Insured Depository
Institution Failure'' (73 FR 41170 (July 17, 2008)) and a Final Rule
relating to ``Large-Bank Deposit Insurance Determination
Modernization'' (73 FR 41180 (July 17, 2008)). The commenter whose
comment was not received by the FDIC and which is related to that
rulemaking is invited to submit his or her comment to the FDIC
through procedures outlined in a second Notice of Limited
Opportunity to Resubmit Comment published by the FDIC in the Federal
Register on October 24, 2008.

\3\ See Interim Final Rule and Request for Comment involving
``Financial Education Programs That Include the Provision of Bank
Products and Services.'' 73 FR 35337 (June 23, 2008). The FDIC
subsequently finalized this interim final rule. 73 FR 55431 (Sept.
25, 2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The FDIC considered all public comments relating to the proposed
rule and posted the comments for public review on its Web site at
http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/federal/. Although the proposed
rule has been finalized, to ensure fairness in its rulemaking process,
the FDIC invites the commenter to resubmit his or her comment if they
(1) commented about this proposed rule on the date indicated, (2) used
the Federal eRulemaking Portal to file their original comment, and (3)
do not believe that their comment was received by the FDIC. If a
commenter is unsure whether his or her comment was received by the
FDIC, the commenter may verify receipt of the comment by checking the
FDIC's Web site for the comment at http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/
laws/federal/ or by contacting the FDIC's Public Information Center
using the contact information indicated above.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

Dated the 20th of October, 2008.

Executive Secretary.
