ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: At a meeting on November 5, 2007, pursuant to provisions in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, the Board of Directors of the FDIC (Board) set the 2008 designated reserve ratio (DRR) for the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) at 1.25% of estimated insured deposits.1 The 2008 DRR of 1.25% is unchanged from the 2007 DRR.2 The Board is publishing this notice as required by section 7(b)(3)(A)(i) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(b)(3)(A)(i)).3 The following is the link to the staff memorandum on which the Board acted when setting the DIF 2008 DRR: http://www.fdic.gov/news/board/ 07memo4nov5.pdf FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Munsell W.

There is no need to amend this provision because, as noted, the DRR for 2008 is the same as the current DRR. 3 The applicable provision of the FDI Act requires notice-and-comment rulemaking only when the Board changes the DRR. 12 U.S.C. 1817(b)(3)(A)(ii).
