Notice of Extension of Public Comment Period: Prompt Corrective Action, Requirements for Insurance, and Promulgation of NCUA Rules and Regulations
The NCUA Board (Board) has extended the public comment period for its proposed rule titled Prompt Corrective Action, Requirements for Insurance, and Promulgation of NCUA Rules and Regulations, 77 FR 59139 (September 26, 2012), to November 26, 2012. The proposed rule addresses asset thresholds affecting regulatory relief for small credit unions.
Designation of Low-Income Status; Acceptance of Secondary Capital Accounts by Low-Income Designated Credit Unions
The NCUA Board proposes to amend its low-income credit unions regulation by extending the time credit unions have to accept a low- income designation. Under the current rule, an FCU that has received notification from NCUA that it qualifies for a low-income designation has 30 days to notify NCUA that it wishes to receive the designation. Some FCUs may find it difficult to respond this quickly, so the proposed rule extends the response period to 90 days. The proposed rule also makes minor, nonsubstantive technical amendments to NCUA's insurance regulation to reflect current agency practice in this regard.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission to OMB for Revision to a Currently Approved Information Collection; Comment Request
The NCUA intends to submit the following information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). This information collection is published to obtain comments from the public. NCUA is proposing a data collection change to the credit union Profile as well as the 5300 Call Report. NCUA is proposing to add a new account to the Contacts section of the Profile to identify the initial date of election or appointment of each official to help assess the longevity of credit union board members. Additionally, NCUA is planning to add a question to the Regulatory section of the Profile where credit unions will be required to certify their compliance with 12 CFR 701.4. On the 5300 Call Report, NCUA will revise the regulatory reporting requirements by eliminating the data collection on modified loans and target data collection efforts on loans meeting the definition of a troubled debt restructured loan under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request
The OCC FDIC, and NCUA (collectively, the ``Agencies''), as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invite the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a new information collection. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid control number issued by the Office of Management and Budget. The Agencies are soliciting comment concerning a proposed collection method entitled ``Interagency Appraisal Complaint Form.''
