SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulation CC establishes the maximum period a depositary bank may wait between receiving a deposit and making the deposited funds available for withdrawal.1 A depositary bank generally must provide faster availability for funds deposited by a ‘‘local check’’ than by a ‘‘nonlocal check.’’ A check is considered local if it is payable by or at or through a bank located in the same Federal Reserve check-processing region as the depositary bank. Appendix A to Regulation CC contains a routing number guide that assists banks in identifying local and nonlocal banks and thereby determining the maximum permissible hold periods for most deposited checks. The appendix includes a list of each Federal Reserve check-processing office and the first four digits of the routing number, known as the Federal Reserve routing symbol, of each bank that is served by that office for check-processing purposes. Banks whose Federal Reserve routing symbols are grouped under the same office are in the same checkprocessing region and thus are local to one another. On November 15, 2008, the Reserve Banks will transfer the check-processing operations of the Jacksonville branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. As a result of this change, some checks that are drawn on and deposited at banks located in the Jacksonville and Atlanta checkprocessing regions and that currently are nonlocal checks will become local checks subject to faster availability schedules. To assist banks in identifying local and nonlocal checks and making funds availability decisions, the Board is amending the list of routing symbols in appendix A associated with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta to 1 For purposes of Regulation CC, the term ‘‘bank’’ refers to any depository institution, including commercial banks, savings institutions, and credit unions.

To coincide with the effective date of the underlying check-processing changes, the amendments to appendix A are effective November 15, 2008. The Board is providing notice of the amendments at this time to give affected banks ample time to make any needed processing changes. Early notice also will enable affected banks to amend their availability schedules and related disclosures if necessary and provide their customers with notice of these changes.2 Administrative Procedure Act The Board has not followed the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) relating to notice and public participation in connection with the adoption of the final rule. The revisions to appendix A are technical in nature and are required by the statutory and regulatory definitions of ‘‘check-processing region.’’ Because there is no substantive change on which to seek public input, the Board has determined that the section 553(b) notice and comment procedures are unnecessary. In addition, the underlying consolidation of Federal Reserve Bank check-processing offices involves a matter relating to agency management, which is exempt from notice and comment procedures. ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES Paperwork Reduction Act In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506; 5 CFR 1320 Appendix A.1), the Board has reviewed the final rule under authority delegated to the Board by the Office of Management and Budget.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 777–200 and –300 series airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual to include inflight procedures for pilots to follow in certain cold weather conditions and requires fuel circulation procedures on the ground when certain conditions exist. This AD results from a report of uncommanded reduction in thrust on both engines because of reduced fuel flows. We are issuing this AD to prevent ice from accumulating in the main tank fuel feed system, which, when released, could result in a restriction in the engine fuel system. Such a restriction could result in failure to achieve a commanded thrust, and consequent forced landing of the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective September 29, 2008. We must receive comments on this AD by November 12, 2008. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. • Fax: 202–493–2251. • Mail: U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M– 30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. • Hand Delivery: U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M– 30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

12 CFR Part 229

[Regulation CC; Docket No. R-1326]


Availability of Funds and Collection of Checks

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Board of Governors (Board) is amending appendix A of 
Regulation CC to delete the reference to the Jacksonville branch office 
of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and to reassign the Federal 
Reserve routing symbols currently listed under that office to the head 
office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. These amendments reflect 
the restructuring of check-processing operations within the Federal 
Reserve System.

DATES: The final rule will become effective on November 15, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffrey S. H. Yeganeh, Financial 
Services Manager (202-728-5801), or Joseph P. Baressi, Financial 
Services Project Leader (202-452-3959), Division of Reserve Bank 
Operations and Payment Systems; or Sophia H. Allison, Senior Counsel 
(202-452-3565), Legal Division. For users of Telecommunications Devices 
for the Deaf (TDD) only, contact 202-263-4869.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulation CC establishes the maximum period 
a depositary bank may wait between receiving a deposit and making the 
deposited funds available for withdrawal.\1\ A depositary bank 
generally must provide faster availability for funds deposited by a 
``local check'' than by a ``nonlocal check.'' A check is considered 
local if it is payable by or at or through a bank located in the same 
Federal Reserve check-processing region as the depositary bank.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of Regulation CC, the term ``bank'' refers to 
any depository institution, including commercial banks, savings 
institutions, and credit unions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Appendix A to Regulation CC contains a routing number guide that 
assists banks in identifying local and nonlocal banks and thereby 
determining the maximum permissible hold periods for most deposited 
checks. The appendix includes a list of each Federal Reserve check-
processing office and the first four digits of the routing number, 
known as the Federal Reserve routing symbol, of each bank that is 
served by that office for check-processing purposes. Banks whose 
Federal Reserve routing symbols are grouped under the same office are 
in the same check-processing region and thus are local to one another.
    On November 15, 2008, the Reserve Banks will transfer the check-
processing operations of the Jacksonville branch office of the Federal 
Reserve Bank of Atlanta to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank 
of Atlanta. As a result of this change, some checks that are drawn on 
and deposited at banks located in the Jacksonville and Atlanta check-
processing regions and that currently are nonlocal checks will become 
local checks subject to faster availability schedules. To assist banks 
in identifying local and nonlocal checks and making funds availability 
decisions, the Board is amending the list of routing symbols in 
appendix A associated with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta to

reflect the transfer of check-processing operations from the 
Jacksonville branch office to the head office of the Federal Reserve 
Bank of Atlanta. To coincide with the effective date of the underlying 
check-processing changes, the amendments to appendix A are effective 
November 15, 2008. The Board is providing notice of the amendments at 
this time to give affected banks ample time to make any needed 
processing changes. Early notice also will enable affected banks to 
amend their availability schedules and related disclosures if necessary 
and provide their customers with notice of these changes.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Section 229.18(e) of Regulation CC requires that banks 
notify account holders who are consumers within 30 days after 
implementing a change that improves the availability of funds.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Administrative Procedure Act

    The Board has not followed the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) 
relating to notice and public participation in connection with the 
adoption of the final rule. The revisions to appendix A are technical 
in nature and are required by the statutory and regulatory definitions 
of ``check-processing region.'' Because there is no substantive change 
on which to seek public input, the Board has determined that the 
section 553(b) notice and comment procedures are unnecessary. In 
addition, the underlying consolidation of Federal Reserve Bank check-
processing offices involves a matter relating to agency management, 
which is exempt from notice and comment procedures.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3506; 5 CFR 1320 Appendix A.1), the Board has reviewed the final rule 
under authority delegated to the Board by the Office of Management and 
Budget. The technical amendment to appendix A of Regulation CC will 
delete the reference to the Jacksonville branch office of the Federal 
Reserve Bank of Atlanta and reassign the routing symbols listed under 
that office to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. 
The depository institutions that are located in the affected check-
processing regions and that include the routing numbers in their 
disclosure statements would be required to notify customers of the 
resulting change in availability under Sec.  229.18(e). However, all 
paperwork collection procedures associated with Regulation CC already 
are in place, and the Board accordingly anticipates that no additional 
burden will be imposed as a result of this rulemaking.
