ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) has PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 adopted final amendments to its Regulation A to reflect the Board’s approval of a decrease in the primary credit rate at each Federal Reserve Bank. The secondary credit rate at each Reserve Bank automatically decreased by formula as a result of the Board’s primary credit rate action. DATES: The amendments to part 201 (Regulation A) are effective September 27, 2007. The rate changes for primary and secondary credit were effective on the dates specified in 12 CFR 201.51, as amended. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer J. Johnson, Secretary of the Board (202/452–3259); for users of Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf (TDD) only, contact 202/263–4869. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Reserve Banks make primary and secondary credit available to depository institutions as a backup source of funding on a short-term basis, usually overnight. The primary and secondary credit rates are the interest rates that the twelve Federal Reserve Banks charge for extensions of credit under these programs. In accordance with the Federal Reserve Act, the primary and secondary credit rates are established by the boards of directors of the Federal Reserve Banks, subject to the review and determination of the Board. The Board approved requests by the Reserve Banks to decrease by 50 basis points the primary credit rate in effect at each of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks, thereby decreasing from 5.75 percent to 5.25 percent the rate that each Reserve Bank charges for extensions of primary credit. As a result of the Board’s action on the primary credit rate, the rate that each Reserve Bank charges for extensions of secondary credit automatically decreased from 6.25 percent to 5.75 percent under the secondary credit rate formula. The final amendments to Regulation A reflect these rate changes. The 50-basis-point decrease in the primary credit rate was associated with a similar decrease in the target for the federal funds rate (from 5.25 percent to 4.75 percent) approved by the Federal Open Market Committee (Committee) and announced at the same time. A press release announcing these actions indicated that: Economic growth was moderate during the first half of the year, but the tightening of E:\FR\FM\27SER1.SGM 27SER1

    On September 17, 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 
(USCIS) published an interim rule at 72 FR 53014 establishing the
