Legal Authority: 12 U.S.C. 4001 to 4010; 12 U.S.C. 5001 to 5018 Abstract: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Board) is amending Regulation CC, which implements the Expedited Funds Availability Act (EFAA), which governs the availability of funds after a check deposit, as well as check collection and return. In March 2011, the Board proposed amendments to Regulation CC VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:45 Nov 15, 2018 Jkt 247001 to facilitate the banking industry’s ongoing transition to fully electronic interbank check collection and return, including proposed amendments to subpart C to encourage depository banks to receive and paying banks to send returned checks electronically and proposed amendments to subpart B’s funds availability schedule provisions. Subsequently, section 1086 of the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act amended the EFAA to provide the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) with joint rulemaking authority with the Board over certain EFAA provisions, including those implemented by subpart B of Regulation CC.

Regulation LL—Savings and Loan Holding Companies and Regulation MM—Mutual Holding Companies (Docket No: R–1429) E.O. 13771 Designation: Independent agency. Legal Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552; 5 U.S.C. 559; 5 U.S.C. 1813; 5 U.S.C. 1817; 5 U.S.C. 1828 Abstract: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act) transferred responsibility for supervision of Savings and Loan Holding Companies (SLHCs) and their non-depository subsidiaries from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Board), on July 21, 2011. The Act also transferred supervisory functions related to Federal savings associations and State savings associations to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), respectively. The Board on August 12, 2011, approved an interim final rule for SLHCs, including a request for public comment. The interim final rule transferred from the OTS to the Board the regulations necessary for the Board to supervise SLHCs, with certain technical and substantive modifications. The interim final rule has three components: (1) New Regulation LL (part 238), which sets forth regulations generally governing SLHCs; (2) new Regulation MM (part 239), which sets forth regulations governing SLHCs in mutual form; and (3) technical amendments to existing Board regulations necessary to accommodate the transfer of supervisory authority for SLHCs from the OTS to the Board. The structure of interim final Regulation LL closely follows that of the Board’s Regulation Y, which governs bank holding companies, in order to provide an overall structure to rules that were previously found in disparate locations. In many instances, interim final Regulation LL incorporated OTS regulations with only technical modifications to account for the shift in supervisory responsibility from the OTS to the Board. Interim final Regulation LL also reflects statutory changes made by VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:45 Nov 15, 2018 Jkt 247001 the Dodd-Frank Act with respect to SLHCs, and incorporates Board precedent and practices with respect to applications processing procedures and control issues, among other matters. Interim final Regulation MM organized existing OTS regulations governing SLHCs in mutual form (MHCs) and their subsidiary holding companies into a single part of the Board’s regulations. In many instances, interim final Regulation MM incorporated OTS regulations with only technical modifications to account for the shift in supervisory responsibility from the OTS to the Board. Interim final Regulation MM also reflects statutory changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act with respect to MHCs. The interim final rule also made technical amendments to Board rules to facilitate supervision of SLHCs, including to rules implementing Community Reinvestment Act requirements and to Board procedural and administrative rules. In addition, the Board made technical amendments to implement section 312(b)(2)(A) of the Act, which transfers to the Board all rulemaking authority under section 11 of the Home Owner’s Loan Act relating to transactions with affiliates and extensions of credit to executive officers, directors, and principal shareholders. These amendments include revisions to parts 215 (Insider Transactions) and part 223 (Transactions with Affiliates) of Board regulations. Timetable: Action Date Board Requested Comment.

(Docket No: R-1409)

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Independent agency.
    Legal Authority: 12 U.S.C. 4001 to 4010; 12 U.S.C. 5001 to 5018
    Abstract: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the 
Board) is amending Regulation CC, which implements the Expedited Funds 
Availability Act (EFAA), which governs the availability of funds after 
a check deposit, as well as check collection and return. In March 2011, 
the Board proposed amendments to Regulation CC to facilitate the 
banking industry's on-going transition to fully electronic interbank 
check collection and return, including proposed amendments to subpart C 
to encourage depository banks to receive and paying banks to send 
returned checks electronically and proposed amendments to subpart B's 
funds availability schedule provisions. Subsequently, section 1086 of 
the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act amended 
the EFAA to provide the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) 
with joint rulemaking authority with the Board over certain EFAA 
provisions, including those implemented by subpart B of Regulation CC. 
Based on its analysis of comments received, the Board revised its 
proposed amendments to subpart C of Regulation CC. The Board finalized 
its proposed amendments to subpart C in June 2017.

504. Regulation LL--Savings and Loan Holding Companies and Regulation 
MM--Mutual Holding Companies (Docket No: R-1429)

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Independent agency.
    Legal Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552; 5 U.S.C. 559; 5 U.S.C. 1813; 5 
U.S.C. 1817; 5 U.S.C. 1828
    Abstract: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection 
Act (the Dodd-Frank Act) transferred responsibility for supervision of 
Savings and Loan Holding Companies (SLHCs) and their non-depository 
subsidiaries from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) to the Board 
of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Board), on July 21, 
2011. The Act also transferred supervisory functions related to Federal 
savings associations and State savings associations to the Office of 
the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and the Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation (FDIC), respectively. The Board on August 12, 2011, 
approved an interim final rule for SLHCs, including a request for 
public comment. The interim final rule transferred from the OTS to the 
Board the regulations necessary for the Board to supervise SLHCs, with 
certain technical and substantive modifications. The interim final rule 
has three components: (1) New Regulation LL (part 238), which sets 
forth regulations generally governing SLHCs; (2) new Regulation MM 
(part 239), which sets forth regulations governing SLHCs in mutual 
form; and (3) technical amendments to existing Board regulations 
necessary to accommodate the transfer of supervisory authority for 
SLHCs from the OTS to the Board. The structure of interim final 
Regulation LL closely follows that of the Board's Regulation Y, which 
governs bank holding companies, in order to provide an overall 
structure to rules that were previously found in disparate locations. 
In many instances, interim final Regulation LL incorporated OTS 
regulations with only technical modifications to account for the shift 
in supervisory responsibility from the OTS to the Board. Interim final 
Regulation LL also reflects statutory changes made by the Dodd-Frank 
Act with respect to SLHCs, and incorporates Board precedent and 
practices with respect to applications processing procedures and 
control issues, among other matters. Interim final Regulation MM 
organized existing OTS regulations governing SLHCs in mutual form 
(MHCs) and their subsidiary holding companies into a single part of the 
Board's regulations. In many instances, interim final Regulation MM 
incorporated OTS regulations with only technical modifications to 
account for the shift in supervisory responsibility from the OTS to the 
Board. Interim final Regulation MM also reflects statutory changes made 
by the Dodd-Frank Act with respect to MHCs. The interim final rule also 
made technical amendments to Board rules to facilitate supervision of 
SLHCs, including to rules implementing Community Reinvestment Act 
requirements and to Board procedural and administrative rules. In 
addition, the Board made technical amendments to implement section 
312(b)(2)(A) of the Act, which transfers to the Board all rulemaking 
authority under section 11 of the Home Owner's Loan Act relating to 
transactions with affiliates and extensions of credit to executive 
officers, directors, and principal shareholders. These amendments 
include revisions to parts 215 (Insider Transactions) and part 223 
(Transactions with Affiliates) of Board regulations.

Final Rule Stage

505. Regulation YY--Single-Counterparty Credit Limits for Large Banking 
Organizations (Docket No: R-1534)

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Independent agency.
    Legal Authority: 12 U.S.C. 321; 12 U.S.C. 1818; 12 U.S.C. 1844(b); 
12 U.S.C. 1844(c); 12 U.S.C. 5365; . . .
    Abstract: The final rule would implement section 165(e) of the 
Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which 
requires the Board to impose limits on the amount of credit exposure 
that such a domestic or foreign bank holding company can have to an 
unaffiliated company in order to reduce the risks arising from the 
company's failure. The final rule, which build on earlier proposed 
rules by the Board to establish single-counterparty credit limits for 
large domestic and foreign banking organizations, would increase in 
stringency based on the systemic importance of the firms to which they
