In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), of which the agencies are members, has approved the agencies' publication for public comment of a proposal to revise and extend for three years the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic and Foreign Offices (FFIEC 031), the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only (FFIEC 041), and the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only and Total Assets Less than $1 Billion (FFIEC 051), which are currently approved collections of information. The Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income are commonly referred to as Call Reports. The proposed revisions in this notice would implement reporting changes in the Call Reports consistent with the agencies' proposed rule to develop a simplified alternative measure of capital adequacy, the community bank leverage ratio, for certain qualifying community banks with less than $10 billion in total consolidated assets, consistent with section 201 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. The proposed revisions in this notice would also implement reporting changes consistent with the FDIC's proposed rule to amend the deposit insurance assessment regulations to apply the community bank leverage ratio framework to the deposit insurance assessment system. The proposed revisions in this notice would take effect the same quarter as the effective date of the forthcoming final rules on the community bank leverage ratio and the related deposit insurance assessment revisions. At the end of the comment period for this notice, the FFIEC and the agencies will review any comments received to determine whether to modify the proposal in response to comments. If modifications are made to the proposed community bank leverage ratio or deposit insurance assessment rules when those rules are adopted in final form, the agencies would modify the Call Report proposal to incorporate such changes. As required by the PRA, the agencies will then publish a second Federal Register notice on the proposal for a 30- day comment period and submit the final Call Reports to OMB for review and approval.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-04-08

Proposal by BB&T Corporation To Acquire SunTrust Banks, Inc. and its Subsidiary, SunTrust Bank, and To Merge SunTrust Bank With and Into Branch Banking and Trust Company
Document Number: 2019-05330
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-03-21
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System
Two public meetings will be held regarding the proposal by BB&T Corporation, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to acquire SunTrust Banks, Inc., and thereby indirectly acquire SunTrust Bank, both of Atlanta, Georgia, pursuant to the Bank Holding Company Act and related statutes.

The purpose of the meetings is to collect information related to factors the Board and FDIC (agencies) are required to consider under the Bank Holding Company Act and the Bank Merger Act.
Margin and Capital Requirements for Covered Swap Entities
Document Number: 2019-05012
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-03-19
Agency: Farm Credit Administration, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
The OCC, Board, FDIC, FCA, and FHFA (each an Agency and, collectively, the Agencies) are adopting and invite comment on an interim final rule amending the Agencies' regulations that require swap dealers and security-based swap dealers under the Agencies' respective jurisdictions to exchange margin with their counterparties for swaps that are not centrally cleared (Swap Margin Rule). The Swap Margin Rule takes effect under a phased compliance schedule stretching from 2016 through 2020, and the dealers covered by the rule continue to hold swaps in their portfolios that were entered into before the effective dates of the rule. Those swaps are grandfathered from the Swap Margin Rule's requirements until they expire according to their terms. There are currently financial services firms located within the United Kingdom (U.K.) that conduct swap dealing activities subject to the Swap Margin Rule. The U.K. has provided formal notice of its intention to withdraw from the European Union (E.U.) on March 29, 2019. If this transpires without a negotiated agreement between the U.K. and E.U., these entities located in the U.K. may not be authorized to provide full-scope financial services to swap counterparties located in the E.U. The Agencies' policy objective in developing the interim final rule is to address one aspect of the scenario likely to ensue, whereby entities located in the U.K. might transfer their existing swap portfolios that face counterparties located in the E.U. over to an affiliate or other related establishment located within the E.U. or the United States (U.S.). The Agencies seek to address industry concerns about the status of grandfathered swaps in this scenario, so the industry can focus on making preparations for swap transfers. These transfers, if carried out in accordance with the conditions of the interim final rule, will not trigger the application of the Swap Margin Rule to grandfathered swaps that were entered into before the compliance dates of the Swap Margin Rule.

The Household Survey is scheduled to be conducted in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau as a supplement to its June 2019 Current Population Survey (CPS). The survey seeks to measure and track economic inclusion among U.S. households, and to identify the factors that inhibit the participation of these households in the mainstream banking system and opportunities to expand the use of banking services among underserved consumers. The results of these ongoing surveys will help policymakers and bankers understand the issues and challenges underserved households perceive when deciding how and where to conduct financial transactions. On November 6, 2018, the FDIC requested comment for 60 days on a proposal to renew these information collections. The FDIC received two comments which are discussed below. The FDIC hereby gives notice of its plan to submit to OMB a request to approve the renewal of this information collection, and again invites comment on the renewal.
Assessments
Document Number: 2019-02761
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-21
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) invites public comment on a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR or proposal) that would amend its deposit insurance assessment regulations to apply the community bank leverage ratio (CBLR) framework to the deposit insurance assessment system. The FDIC, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) (collectively, the Federal banking agencies) recently issued an interagency proposal to implement the community bank leverage ratio (the CBLR NPR). Under this proposal, the FDIC would assess all banks that elect to use the CBLR framework (CBLR banks) as small banks. Through amendments to the assessment regulations and corresponding changes to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report), CBLR banks would have the option of using either CBLR tangible equity or tier 1 capital for their assessment base calculation, and using either the CBLR or the tier 1 leverage ratio for the Leverage Ratio that the FDIC uses to calculate an established small bank's assessment rate. Through this NPR, the FDIC also would clarify that a CBLR bank that meets the definition of a custodial bank would have no change to its custodial bank deduction or reporting items required to calculate the deduction; and the assessment regulations would continue to reference the prompt corrective action (PCA) regulations for the definitions of capital categories used in the deposit insurance assessment system, with technical amendments to align with the CBLR NPR. To assist banks in understanding the effects of the NPR, the FDIC plans to provide on its website an assessment estimation tool that estimates deposit insurance assessment amounts under the proposal.
Loans in Areas Having Special Flood Hazards
Document Number: 2019-02650
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-20

The Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income are commonly referred to as Call Reports. In addition, the FFIEC requested public comment for 60 days on a proposal to revise and extend the Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks (FFIEC 002) and the Report of Assets and Liabilities of a Non-U.S. Branch that is Managed or Controlled by a U.S. Branch or Agency of a Foreign (Non-U.S.) Bank (FFIEC 002S), which are currently approved collections of information. The Board published this proposal on behalf of the agencies. Also, the agencies requested public comment for 60 days on proposals to revise and extend the Foreign Branch Report of Condition (FFIEC 030), the Abbreviated Foreign Branch Report of Condition (FFIEC 030S), and the Regulatory Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101), which are currently approved collections of information. The comment period for the September 2018 notice ended on November 27, 2018. As described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section, after considering the comments received on the proposals, the FFIEC and agencies will proceed with the proposed reporting revisions to and extensions of the FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, FFIEC 051, FFIEC 002, FFIEC 002S, FFIEC 030, FFIEC 030S, and FFIEC 101, as originally proposed, with some modification to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041. These proposed revisions generally address the revised accounting for credit losses under the Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-13, ``Financial InstrumentsCredit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments'' (ASU 2016-13). This proposal also includes regulatory capital reporting changes related to implementing the agencies' recent final rule on the implementation and capital transition for the current expected credit losses methodology (CECL). In addition, this notice includes other revisions to the Call Reports and the FFIEC 101 resulting from two sections of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA), effective upon enactment on May 24, 2018, that affect the information reported in these reports and for which the agencies submitted emergency review requests to OMB that OMB has approved. The proposed revisions related to ASU 2016-13 would begin to take effect March 31, 2019, for reports with quarterly report dates and December 31, 2019, for reports with an annual report date, with later effective dates for certain respondents. In addition, the agencies are giving notice they are sending the collections to OMB for review.

Such banking organizations that elect to use the community bank leverage ratio and that maintain a community bank leverage ratio of greater than 9 percent would not be subject to other risk-based and leverage capital requirements and would be considered to have met the well capitalized ratio requirements for purposes of section 38 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations implementing that section, as applicable, and the generally applicable capital requirements under the agencies' capital rule.

Unsafe and Unsound Banking Practices: Brokered Deposits and Interest Rate Restrictions
Document Number: 2018-28273
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-06
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is undertaking a comprehensive review of the regulatory approach to brokered deposits and the interest rate caps applicable to banks that are less than well capitalized. Since the statutory brokered deposit restrictions were put in place in 1989, and amended in 1991, the financial services industry has seen significant changes in technology, business models, and products. In addition, changes to the economic environment have raised a number of issues relating to the interest rate restrictions. A key part of the FDIC's review is to seek public comment through this Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) on the impact of these changes. The FDIC will carefully consider comments received in response to this ANPR in determining what actions may be warranted.

The Board and the FDIC (together, the ``Agencies'') are adopting this final guidance for the 2019 and subsequent resolution plan submissions by the eight largest, complex U.S. banking organizations (``Covered Companies'' or ``firms''). The final guidance is meant to assist these firms in developing their resolution plans, which are required to be submitted pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''). The final guidance, which is largely based on prior guidance issued to these Covered Companies, describes the Agencies' expectations regarding a number of key vulnerabilities in plans for an orderly resolution under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (i.e., capital; liquidity; governance mechanisms; operational; legal entity rationalization and separability; and derivatives and trading activities). The final guidance also updates certain aspects of prior guidance based on the Agencies' review of these firms' most recent resolution plan submissions.

Thresholds Increase for the Major Assets Prohibition of the Depository Institution Management Interlocks Act Rules
Document Number: 2018-28038
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-01-31
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (collectively, the agencies) are inviting comment on a proposed rule that would increase the major assets prohibition thresholds for management interlocks in the agencies' rules implementing the Depository Institution Management Interlocks Act (DIMIA). The DIMIA major assets prohibition prohibits a management official of a depository organization with total assets exceeding $2.5 billion (or any affiliate of such an organization) from serving at the same time as a management official of an unaffiliated depository organization with total assets exceeding $1.5 billion (or any affiliate of such an organization). DIMIA provides that the agencies may adjust, by regulation, the major assets prohibition thresholds in order to allow for inflation or market changes. The agencies propose to raise the major assets prohibition thresholds to $10 billion to account for changes in the United States banking market since the current thresholds were established in 1996. The agencies also propose three alternative approaches for increasing the thresholds based on market changes or inflation. Increasing the major assets prohibition thresholds would relieve certain depository organizations below the adjusted thresholds from having to ask the agencies for an exemption from the major assets prohibition. The agencies do not expect the proposal to materially increase anticompetitive risk.
Expanded Examination Cycle for Certain Small Insured Depository Institutions and U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks
Document Number: 2018-28267
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-12-28
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
On August 29, 2018, the OCC, Board, and FDIC (collectively, the agencies) issued interim final rules that were effective immediately to implement section 210 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (Economic Growth Act), which was enacted on May 24, 2018. The agencies are now adopting the interim final rules as final without change. The interim final rules and final rules implement section 210 of the Economic Growth Act, which amended section 10(d) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act) to permit the agencies to examine qualifying insured depository institutions (IDIs) with under $3 billion in total assets not less than once during each 18-month period. In addition, these final rules adopt as final the parallel changes to the agencies' regulations governing the on-site examination cycle for U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks, consistent with the International Banking Act of 1978 (IBA).
Company-Run Stress Testing Requirements for FDIC-Supervised State Nonmember Banks and State Savings Associations
Document Number: 2018-27824
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-12-28
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is requesting comment on a proposed rule (proposed rule or NPR) that would revise the FDIC's requirements for stress testing by FDIC-supervised institutions, consistent with changes made by Section 401 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA). Specifically, the proposed rule would amend the FDIC's existing stress testing regulations to change the minimum threshold for applicability from $10 billion to $250 billion, revise the frequency of required stress tests by FDIC-supervised institutions, and reduce the number of required stress testing scenarios from three to two. The NPR also proposes to make certain conforming and technical changes, including changes that were previously proposed in an April 2018 notice of proposed rulemaking that was superseded, in part, by the enactment of EGRRCPA.
Community Reinvestment Act Regulations
Document Number: 2018-27791
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-12-27
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (collectively, the Agencies) are amending their Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations to adjust the asset-size thresholds used to define ``small bank'' or ``small savings association'' and ``intermediate small bank'' or ``intermediate small savings association.'' As required by the CRA regulations, the adjustment to the threshold amount is based on the annual percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W).
Proposed Changes to Applicability Thresholds for Regulatory Capital and Liquidity Requirements
Document Number: 2018-27177
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-12-21
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the agencies) are inviting comment on a proposal that would establish risk-based categories for determining applicability of requirements under the regulatory capital rule, the liquidity coverage ratio rule, and the proposed net stable funding ratio rule for large U.S. banking organizations. The proposal would establish four categories of standards and apply tailored capital and liquidity requirements for banking organizations subject to each category. The proposal is consistent with a separate proposal issued by the Board that would apply certain prudential standards for large U.S. banking organizations based on the same categories. The proposal would not amend the capital and liquidity requirements currently applicable to an intermediate holding company of a foreign banking organization or its subsidiary depository institutions. This proposal also would not amend the requirements applicable to Federal branches or agencies of foreign banking organizations.
