12 CFR Ch. III

Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.


SUMMARY: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is hereby publishing items for the April 1998 regulatory agenda. The agenda contains information about FDIC's current and projected rulemakings, existing regulations under review, and completed rulemakings.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Persons identified under regulations listed in the agenda. Unless otherwise noted, the address for all FDIC staff identified in the agenda is Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, 550 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20429.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Twice each year, the FDIC publishes an agenda of regulations to inform the public of its regulatory actions and to enhance public participation in the rulemaking process. Publication of the agenda is in accordance with both the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) and the FDIC statement of policy entitled ``Development and Review of FDIC Rules and Regulations'' (44 FR 31007, May 30, 1979; 44 FR 32353, June 6, 1979; 44 FR 76858, December 28, 1979; 49 FR 7288, February 28, 1984).

The FDIC amends its regulations under the general rulemaking authority prescribed in section 9 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1819) and under specific authority granted by the Act and other statutes.

The Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994 (CDRI) contains reforms that significantly restructure the regulation of financial institutions. As a consequence, many of the regulations included in this agenda are in response to CDRI. The FDIC is continuing to develop regulations implementing the most recent legislative requirements. These include the requirement in section 303 of CDRI that the Federal banking regulators conduct a review of all their regulations and written policies to streamline them, remove inconsistencies, improve efficiency, reduce unnecessary costs, and make uniform all regulations and guidelines implementing common statutory or supervisory policies. Changes to the FDIC's regulations as a result of CDRI will be noted in this and future semiannual agendas as they emerge from these reviews. The Federal banking regulators are the FDIC, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRS), and the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS). In some cases, the FDIC also coordinates with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).

Interested persons may petition the FDIC for the issuance, amendment, or repeal of any regulation by submitting a written petition to the Executive Secretary, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Washington, DC 20429. Petitioners should include complete and concise statements of their interest in the subject matter and reasons why the petitions should be granted.

Dated: February 20, 1998.
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Robert E. Feldman,
Executive Secretary.
