Proposed Posting, Posting, and Deposting of Stockyards
This notice announces several actions related to posting of stockyards; when required we physically post a sign providing public notice that the stockyard is subject to provisions of the Packers and Stockyards Act. We propose to post 10 stockyards. We have received information that these stockyards meet the definition of a stockyard under the Packers and Stockyards Act and, therefore, need to be posted. Posted stockyards are subject to the provisions of the Packers and Stockyards Act. In addition, we have posted 12 stockyards that were previously announced as proposed postings. We determined that the stockyards meet the definition of a stockyard under the Packers and Stockyards Act and, therefore, have been posted. Three other facilities, for which notices of proposed posting were announced, were not posted because they no longer meet the definition of a stockyard. These facilities were either abandoned or underwent a change so they no longer function as a stockyard. We are also deposting two stockyards. These facilities can no longer be used as stockyards and, therefore, are no longer required to be posted.

Unified Rule for Loss on Subsidiary Stock
This document contains proposed regulations under sections 358, 362(e)(2) and 1502 of the Internal Revenue Code (Code). The regulations apply to corporations filing consolidated returns. The regulations implement aspects of the repeal of the General Utilities doctrine by redetermining members' bases in subsidiary stock and requiring certain reductions in subsidiary stock basis on a transfer of the stock. The regulations also promote the clear reflection of income by redetermining members' bases in subsidiary stock and reducing the subsidiary's attributes to prevent the duplication of loss. Additionally, the regulations provide guidance limiting the application of section 362(e)(2) with respect to transactions between members of a consolidated group.
