Federal Housing Finance Board November 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Federal Home Loan Bank Liabilities
Document Number: 2010-28178
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-11-08
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Board, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Housing Finance Agency
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is proposing to re- organize and re-adopt existing Federal Housing Finance Board (Finance Board) regulations dealing with consolidated obligations (COs), as well as related regulations addressing other authorized Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) liabilities and book-entry procedures for COs, as new part 1270 of the FHFA regulations. The proposed rule would also make changes to the regulations governing COs to reflect recent statutory amendments which removed authority from FHFA to issue COs on which the Banks are jointly and severally liable and provided this authority to the Banks themselves. Otherwise, FHFA is proposing to re-adopt most of the regulatory provisions addressed in this rulemaking without substantive amendment.
