Document Number: 2017-27530
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-12-22

Honey Packers and Importers Research, Promotion, Consumer Education and Industry Information Order; Change in Producer Eligibility Requirements and Implementation of Charges for Past Due Assessments
Document Number: 2017-27526
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-22
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This proposal invites comments on revising the eligibility requirements for producer representatives on the Honey Packers and Importers Board (Board) and prescribing late payment and interest charges on past due assessments under the Agricultural Marketing Service's (AMS) regulation regarding a national research and promotion program for honey and honey products. The Board administers the regulations with oversight by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This proposal would reduce the minimum production requirement for producers to serve on the Board from 150,000 to 50,000 pounds annually and thereby allow more producers to be eligible to serve on the Board. This proposal would also prescribe late payment and interest charges on past due assessments to help facilitate program administration. Both of these actions were unanimously recommended by the Board.
Missing Participants
Document Number: 2017-27515
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-22

With this final regulation, PBGC revises the existing program to simplify procedures and remove unnecessary rules and, as authorized by the Pension Protection Act of 2006, establishes similar programs for most defined contribution plans, multiemployer plans covered by the pension insurance system, and certain defined benefit plans that are not covered.
Home Mortgage Disclosure
Document Number: 2017-27491
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-22
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) is repealing its Regulation C, which was issued to implement the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) transferred rulemaking authority for a number of consumer financial protection laws, including HMDA, from the Board to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau). HMDA requires covered financial institutions to collect and report loan data in connection with residential mortgage applications and loans. Although the Board retains authority to issue some consumer financial protection rules, all rulemaking authority under HMDA concerning mortgage loan transactions was transferred to the Bureau. In December 2011, the Bureau published an interim final rule establishing its own Regulation C to implement HMDA, which superseded the Board's Regulation C. In October 2015, the Bureau revised its own Regulation C to expand and revise the data collection and reporting regime required under HMDA, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act. In April 2016, the Bureau published a final rule adopting the December 2011 interim final rule, as revised by the October 2015 final rule. Accordingly, the Board is repealing its Regulation C and the Official Staff Commentary that accompanies the regulation.
