SUBJECT: Proposed Rule Governing Filing Procedures
(Part 303 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations)
Summary: The FDIC is seeking public comment on certain proposed changes to Part 303 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Board of Directors is requesting public comment on the attached proposed rule clarifying the filing and processing of applications submitted by insured depository institutions. Comments on this proposed rule are due by February 25, 2003.
