SUMMARY: Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee
Act (``FACA''), 5 U.S.C. App. 2, and after consultation with the
General Services Administration, the Chairman of the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation has determined that renewal of the FDIC Advisory
Committee on Economic Inclusion (``the Committee'') is in the public
interest in connection with the performance of duties imposed upon the
FDIC by law. The Committee has been a successful undertaking by the
FDIC and has provided valuable feedback to the agency on important
initiatives focused on expanding access to banking services by
underserved populations. The Committee will continue to provide advice
and recommendations on initiatives to expand access to banking services
by underserved populations. The Committee will continue to review
various issues that may include, but not be limited to, basic retail
financial services such as check cashing, money orders, remittances,
stored value cards, short-term loans, savings accounts, and other
services to promote asset accumulation and financial stability. The
structure and responsibilities of the Committee are unchanged from when
it was originally established in November 2006. The Committee will
continue to operate in accordance with the provisions of the Federal
Advisory Committee Act.

Management Officer of the FDIC, at (202) 898-7043.
