Responsibilities of Boards of Directors, Corporate Practices and Corporate Governance Matters
On January 28, 2014, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking for public comment proposing to amend its regulations by relocating, consolidating, and modifying as necessary, certain Federal Housing Finance Board and Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight regulations that pertain to the responsibilities of boards of directors, corporate practices, and corporate governance matters. The proposed rule would also amend a definition within FHFA's Prudential Management and Operations Standards regulations and the introductory language to the standards themselves. The comment period for the proposed rule is set to expire on March 31, 2014 April 29, 2014. This document extends the comment period by an additional 45 days, through and including May 15, 2014, to allow the public additional time to comment on the proposed rule.
