This section of the FEDERAL REGISTER contains notices to the public of
the proposed issuance of rules and regulations. The purpose of these
notices is to give interested persons an opportunity to participate in
the rule making prior to the adoption of the final rules.
SUMMARY: The FDIC is withdrawing a proposed rule to amend its
regulation designating economically depressed regions at 12 CFR Part
357. The proposed rule, published at 57 FR 60140 on December 18, 1992,
would have updated the list of states designated as ``economically
depressed regions'' for purposes of section 13(k)(5) of the Federal
Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. 1823(k)(5). No comments were received
and the proposed rule was never adopted as final. Elsewhere in this
issue of the Federal Register, the FDIC is publishing a final rule that
provides criteria to be used by the FDIC to determine which regions are
``economically depressed'' rather than identifying particular states by
DATES: The proposed rule published at 57 FR 60140, December 18, 1992 is
withdrawn on March 3, 1998.
