ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) amended the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 (Safety and Soundness Act) to require the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) (together, the Enterprises), and the Federal Home Loan Banks (Banks or Bank System) and the Bank System’s Office of Finance (collectively, the regulated entities) to promote diversity and ensure the inclusion of minorities and women in all business and activities at all levels, including management, employment, and contracting. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing this final rule amending its regulations on minority and women inclusion (MWI) to clarify the scope of the regulated entities’ obligation. The final rule requires the regulated entities to: Adopt strategic plans to promote the inclusion of minorities-, women-, and disabled individuals, and the businesses they own (MWDOB); amend their policies on equal employment opportunity (EEO) to include sexual orientation, gender identity, and status as a parent; and enhance the usefulness of information the regulated entities report to FHFA on their efforts to advance diversity and inclusion (D&I).

The telephone number for the Telecommunications Device for the Hearing Impaired is (800) 877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. Statutory Background Section 1116 of HERA1 amended section 1319A of the Safety and Soundness Act to require, in part, that each regulated entity establish an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI), responsible for carrying out all matters relating to diversity in the management, employment, and business activities of the entity. Section 1116 of HERA mandates that each regulated entity 2 implement standards for promoting diversity in all its business and activities, and submit an annual report to FHFA detailing related actions taken during the preceding year. Additionally, 12 U.S.C. 1833e(b),3 and Executive Order (E.O.)11478,4 require the regulated entities to promote EEO. B. Regulatory History The following FHFA rulemaking activities implement section 1116 of HERA, 12 U.S.C. 1833e, and E.O. 11478, as amended. 1. 2010 Minority and Women Inclusion Rulemaking (MWI Rule) FHFA adopted a final rule in December 2010, establishing the minimum requirements for the regulated entities’ diversity programs and reporting requirements.5 The regulations, located at 12 CFR part 1223,6 require each regulated entity to 1 Public Law 110–289, 122 Stat. 2654, enacted July 30, 2008. 2 For readability, where the preamble refers to a ‘‘regulated entity’’ or the ‘‘regulated entities’’ the provisions apply equally to the Office of Finance, unless such application would conflict with a statute or regulation that specifically distinguishes the treatment of the Office of Finance from the regulated entities. 3 See Public Law 101–73, title XII, sec. 1216, Aug. 9, 1989, 103 Stat. 529; Public Law 102–233, title III, sec. 302(a), Dec. 12, 1991; Public Law 110–289, div. A, title II, sec. 1216(g), July 30, 2008, 122 Stat. 2793; Public Law 111–203, title III, sec. 367(9), July 21, 2010, 124 Stat. 1557. 4 E.O. 11478—Equal Employment Opportunity in the Federal Government, August 8, 1969, as amended. 5 See 75 FR 81395 (December 28, 2010). 6 These regulations were formerly located at 12 CFR part 1207. On March 24, 2017, FHFA’s Minority Outreach Program (MWOP) rulemaking redesignated the MWI regulation as part 1223 of PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 submit a detailed annual report to FHFA’s Director summarizing their D&I activities during the preceding reporting year. Part 1223 also provides that, pursuant to 12 U.S.C. 4517, FHFA’s Director may conduct examinations of a regulated entity’s compliance. 2. 2015 Board Diversity Amendments to the MWI Rule In 2015, FHFA amended the MWI Rule to require the Banks and the Office of Finance to report annually on demographic information related to their boards of directors.7 3. 2016 Strategic Planning Proposed Amendments to the MWI Rule (2016 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking or ‘‘2016 NPRM’’ or ‘‘the Proposed Amendments’’) 8 FHFA published the 2016 NPRM in the Federal Register on October 27, 2016, to amend the MWI rule. The Proposed Amendments require the regulated entities to adopt strategies for promoting diversity and ensuring inclusion. The Proposed Amendments specifically would: (i) Encourage the regulated entities to provide subcontracting (tier 2) opportunities for MWDOBs; (ii) require the regulated entities to amend their EEO policies by adding sexual orientation, gender identity, and status as a parent to the list of protected classes; (iii) affirm that the regulated entities may expand the scope of their outreach and inclusion programs beyond the requirements of part 1223 (to include, for example, veterans, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) outreach); (iv) require the regulated entities to provide additional information on their MWI efforts; and (v) add, revise, or remove several definitions in order to clarify the existing and new reporting requirements. The public comment period for the Proposed Amendments closed on December 27, 2016. FHFA received 31 comments (including comments from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Bank System and their Presidents and Chief Executive Officers, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), trade associations, non-profit organizations, potential vendors, and individual members of the public). Twenty commenters expressed support for the proposed amendments, three expressly opposed them, and the title 12 of the CFR and the new MWOP regulation as part 1207, in order to organize all FHFA regulations related to FHFA’s Organization & Operations in subchapter A, and those regulations related to Regulated Entities in subchapter B. 7 See 80 FR 25209 (May 4, 2015). 8 See 80 FR 74731 (October 27, 2015).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a direct final rule in the

Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC 
finds good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on the 
amendment because it will have no substantive impact and is of a minor 
and administrative nature dealing with a correction to a CFR section 
related only to management, organization, procedure, and practice. 
Specifically, this amendment is to correct an editorial error. This 
amendment does not require action by any person or entity regulated by 
the NRC. Also, this final rule does not change the substantive 
responsibilities of any person or entity regulated by the NRC. 
Accordingly, for the reasons stated, the NRC finds, pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists to make this rule effective 
upon publication.
