Prohibition on Funding of Unlawful Internet Gambling
Document Number: 07-4914
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-10-04
Agency: Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
This notice is published jointly by the Departmental Offices of the Department of the Treasury (the ``Treasury'') and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the ``Board'') (collectively, the ``Agencies'') and proposes rules to implement applicable provisions of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the ``Act''). In accordance with the requirements of the Act, the proposed rule designates certain payment systems that could be used in connection with unlawful Internet gambling transactions restricted by the Act. The proposed rule requires participants in designated payment systems to establish policies and procedures reasonably designed to identify and block or otherwise prevent or prohibit transactions in connection with unlawful Internet gambling. As required by the Act, the proposed rule also exempts certain participants in designated payment systems from the requirements to establish such policies and procedures because the Agencies believe it is not reasonably practical for those participants to identify and block, or otherwise prevent or prohibit, unlawful Internet gambling transactions restricted by the Act. Finally, the proposed rule describes the types of policies and procedures that non-exempt participants in each type of designated payment system may adopt in order to comply with the Act and includes non-exclusive examples of policies and procedures which would be deemed to be reasonably designed to prevent or prohibit unlawful Internet gambling transactions restricted by the Act. The proposed rule does not specify which gambling activities or transactions are legal or illegal because the Act itself defers to underlying State and Federal gambling laws in that regard and determinations under those laws may depend on the facts of specific activities or transactions (such as the location of the parties).

Definitions of Terms and Exemptions Relating to the “Broker” Exceptions for Banks
Document Number: 07-4769
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-03
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System
The Board and the Commission jointly are adopting a single set of final rules that implement certain of the exceptions for banks from the definition of the term ``broker'' under Section 3(a)(4) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act''), as amended by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (``GLBA''). The rules define terms used in these statutory exceptions and include certain related exemptions. In developing these rules, the Agencies have consulted with, and sought the concurrence of, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (``OCC''), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (``FDIC'') and the Office of Thrift Supervision (``OTS''), and have taken into consideration all comments received on the proposed rules issued in December 2006. The rules are intended, among other things, to facilitate banks' compliance with the Exchange Act and the GLBA.

Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions
Document Number: E7-19263
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-10-01
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is amending Regulation D, Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions, to reflect the annual indexing of the reserve requirement exemption amount and the low reserve tranche for 2008. The Regulation D amendments set the amount of total reservable liabilities of each depository institution that is subject to a zero percent reserve requirement in 2008 at $9.3 million, up from $8.5 million in 2007. This amount is known as the reserve requirement exemption amount. The Regulation D amendment also sets the amount of net transaction accounts at each depository institution that is subject to a three percent reserve requirement in 2008 at $43.9 million, down from $45.8 million in 2007. This amount is known as the low reserve tranche. The adjustments to both of these amounts are derived using statutory formulas specified in the Federal Reserve Act. The Board is also announcing changes in two other amounts, the nonexempt deposit cutoff level and the reduced reporting limit, that are used to determine the frequency at which depository institutions must submit deposit reports.
