Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 137 / Monday, July 18, 2016 / Notices Federal and State bank and nonbank regulators. At the State level, coordinated supervision helps maximize the agencies’ collective effectiveness at protecting consumers, increasing efficiency, avoiding supervisory duplication, and minimizing burden on supervised entities. The CFPB, the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), other State agency associations, and 62 agencies in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam have joined a cooperative Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to facilitate coordinated activities. In addition, the Bureau and State regulatory agencies (through CSBS) have established a Framework 42 for cooperation and coordination on State bank and nonbank examinations. The Bureau works with State regulators and other State regulatory associations on nonbank supervisory matters through the State Coordinating Committee (SCC) referenced under the Framework to facilitate scheduling of and participation in coordinated examinations. The Bureau and the SCC have conducted multiple coordinated examinations during the review period and are currently preparing the 2017 nonbank coordinated examination schedule. The Bureau has also implemented processes to share its examination schedules, examination reports, and supervisory letters with its State counterparts. At the Federal level, the Bureau coordinates with the prudential regulators, including the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), regarding various supervisory matters. In connection with very large State-chartered banks and credit unions and certain nonbanks under the CFPB’s supervisory authority, the CFPB may coordinate with both the appropriate State and Federal agencies. Representatives of the Bureau and the Federal prudential regulators meet regularly to coordinate supervisory and other activities, and supervisory staff at the Bureau and the Federal prudential regulators confer on a routine basis to discuss examinations and other supervisory matters regarding particular institutions. 42 For more on the framework, see http:// files.consumerfinance.gov/f/201305_cfpb_statesupervisory-coordination-framework.pdf. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Jul 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 3.2 Recent CFPB Guidance The CFPB is committed to providing guidance on its supervisory priorities to industry and members of the public. 3.2.1 Expiration of the Suspension of Credit Card Agreement Submission Under TILA (Regulation Z) Regulation Z requires credit card issuers to submit their currently-offered credit card agreements to the Bureau, to be posted on the Bureau’s Web site. In April 2015, the Bureau suspended that submission obligation for a period of one year. That suspension has expired, and a submission was due on the first business day on or after April 30, 2016 (i.e., May 2, 2016).43 3.2.2 Interagency Guidance Regarding Deposit Reconciliation Practices On May 18, 2016, the CFPB jointly released guidance with the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, the NCUA, and the OCC regarding deposit account reconciliation practices. This guidance informs financial institutions about supervisory expectations regarding customer account deposit reconciliation practices. The guidance establishes the supervisory expectation that financial institutions will adopt deposit reconciliation policies and practices that are designed to avoid or reconcile discrepancies, or designed to resolve discrepancies so that customers are not disadvantaged. In addition, the guidance affirms the expectation that financial institutions will effectively manage their deposit reconciliation practices to comply with applicable laws and regulations and to prevent potential harm to customers. The guidance also notes that financial institutions should implement effective CMS to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and fair treatment of customers. The guidance notes that a financial institution’s deposit reconciliation practices may, depending on the facts and circumstances, violate the prohibition against unfair, deceptive, and abusive acts or practices found in Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act and sections 1031 and 1036 of the DoddFrank Act.44 43 Submission instructions can be found on the Bureau’s Web site at http:// www.consumerfinance.gov/credit-cards/ agreements/. 44 See, for example, the CFPB’s action against Citizens Bank, summarized in the Fall 2015 edition of Supervisory Highlights, available at http:// files.consumerfinance.gov/f/ 201510_cfpb_supervisory-highlights.pdf and the Order issued on August 12, 2015, available at http://files.consumerfinance.gov/f/ 201408_cfpb_consent-order-rbs-citizens.pdf. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46657 The Bureau expects to continue coordinating with other agencies on these issues, and will consider appropriate action if law violations are identified at institutions or their service providers, consistent with the Bureau’s authority. 4. Conclusion One of the Bureau’s goals is to provide information that enables industry participants to ensure their operations remain in compliance with Federal consumer financial law. The CFPB recognizes the value of communicating program findings to CFPB-supervised entities to aid their efforts to comply with Federal consumer financial law, and to other stakeholders to foster better understanding of the CFPB’s work. To this end, the Bureau remains committed to publishing its Supervisory Highlights report periodically in order to share information regarding general supervisory and examination findings (without identifying specific institutions, except in the case of public enforcement actions), to communicate operational changes to the program, and to provide a convenient and easily accessible resource for information on the CFPB’s guidance documents.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is beginning preparation of a National Environmental Policy Act assessment for the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Project (LOWP). The Everglades ecosystem, including Lake Okeechobee, encompasses a system of diverse wetland landscapes that are hydrologically and ecologically connected across more than 200 miles from north to south and across 18,000 square miles of southern Florida. In 2000, the U.S. Congress authorized the Federal government, in partnership with the State of Florida, to embark upon a multi-decade, multi-billion dollar Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) to further protect and restore the remaining Everglades ecosystem while providing for other water-related needs of the region. CERP involves modification of the existing network of drainage canals and levees that make up the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project. One of the next steps for implementation of CERP is to identify opportunities to asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Jul 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 restore the quantity, quality, timing and distribution of flows into Lake Okeechobee. The LOW Project preliminary project area, where placement of features will be considered, covers a large portion of the Lake Okeechobee Watershed north of the lake. Water inflows into Lake Okeechobee greatly exceed outflow capacity, thus many times there is too much water within Lake Okeechobee that needs to be released in order to ensure integrity of the Herbert Hoover Dike. At other times, there may be too little water within Lake Okeechobee. Lake levels that are too high or too low, and inappropriate recession and ascension rates, can adversely affect native vegetation, and fish and wildlife species that depend upon the lake for foraging and reproduction. The volume and frequency of undesirable freshwater releases to the east and west lowers salinity in the estuaries, severely impacting oysters, sea grasses, and fish. Additionally, high nutrient levels adversely affect in-lake water quality, estuary habitat, and habitat throughout the Greater Everglades. The objectives of the LOW Project are to improve the quality, quantity, timing and distribution of water entering Lake Okeechobee, provide for better management of lake water levels, reduce damaging releases to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries downstream of the lake and improve system-wide operational flexibility.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: a. Since 2000, much progress has been made on CERP projects. Construction has begun on the first generation of CERP project modifications already authorized by Congress. These include the Picayune Strand Restoration, the Indian River Lagoon South and Site 1 Impoundment Projects. Congressional authorization has been received for the second generation of CERP projects, including Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands-Phase 1, the Broward County Water Preserve Areas, the Caloosahatchee River (C–43) West Basin Storage Reservoir, and the C–111 Spreader Canal Western Project which are already under construction or are operational, and the Broward County Water Preserve Areas which is currently PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46659 being designed. The Central Everglades Planning Project is currently awaiting congressional authorization. All of these CERP projects contribute significant ecological benefits to the system and the specific regional habitats in which they are located. b. The objectives of the LOWP are to improve the quality, quantity, timing and distribution of water entering Lake Okeechobee, provide for better management of lake water levels, reduce damaging releases to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries downstream of the lake and improve system-wide operational flexibility. c. A scoping letter will be used to invite comments from Federal, State, and local agencies, affected Indian Tribes, and other interested private organizations and individuals. d.
