Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Board) is issuing its final rule to revise and expand its equal employment opportunity regulation to adopt recent changes the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) made to its rules. The Board's rule is intended to provide Board employees, applicants for employment, and others with the same substantive and procedural rights generally guaranteed to others under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Rehabilitation Act and thus to comply with the spirit of those laws. The Board's rule also clarifies provisions related to Board employees' right to bring a claim before the Merit System Protection Board and the Federal Labor Relations Board.

Changes to Applicability Thresholds for Regulatory Capital Requirements for Certain U.S. Subsidiaries of Foreign Banking Organizations and Application of Liquidity Requirements to Foreign Banking Organizations, Certain U.S. Depository Institution Holding Companies, and Certain Depository Institution Subsidiaries
Document Number: 2019-09245
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-24
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 (Board), and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the agencies) are inviting comment on a proposal that would determine the application of regulatory capital requirements to certain U.S. intermediate holding companies of foreign banking organizations and their depository institution subsidiaries and the application of standardized liquidity requirements with respect to certain U.S. operations of large foreign banking organizations and certain of their depository institution subsidiaries, each according to risk-based categories. For liquidity, the proposal would require a foreign banking organization that meets certain criteria to comply with liquidity coverage ratio and net stable funding ratio requirements with respect to any U.S. intermediate holding company and certain depository institution subsidiaries thereof; in addition, the Board is not proposing but is requesting comment on whether it should impose standardized liquidity requirements on such foreign banking organizations with respect to their U.S. branch and agency networks, as well as possible approaches for doing so. The proposal is consistent with a separate proposal issued by the Board that would apply certain prudential standards to foreign banking organizations based on the same categories, and is similar to a proposal issued by the agencies in 2018 that would determine the application of regulatory capital and standardized liquidity requirements for large U.S. banking organizations according to risk- based categories (the domestic interagency proposal). In addition, the Board is modifying one aspect of the proposed requirements under the domestic interagency proposal with respect to certain banking organizations; specifically, to propose the application of a standardized liquidity requirement to certain U.S. depository institution holding companies that meet specified criteria relating to their liquidity risk profile. The agencies are also making technical amendments to certain provisions of the domestic interagency proposal.

Potential Modifications to the Federal Reserve Banks' National Settlement Service and Fedwire® Funds Service To Support Enhancements to the Same-Day ACH Service and Corresponding Changes to the Federal Reserve Policy on Payment System Risk, Request for Comments
Document Number: 2019-09949
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-16
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors (Board) is requesting comment on potential modifications to the Federal Reserve Banks' (Reserve Banks) payment services to facilitate adoption of a later same-day automated clearinghouse (ACH) processing and settlement window. Specifically, the Reserve Banks would extend the daily operating hours of the National Settlement Service (NSS) to allow the private-sector ACH operator to settle its in-network transactions resulting from the later same-day ACH window. To support these new NSS operating hours, the Reserve Banks would extend the daily operating hours of the Fedwire[supreg] Funds Service, creating implications for extension policies for contingencies that might result in more frequent delays to the reopening of the Fedwire[supreg] Funds Service. Finally, the Board is requesting comment on corresponding changes to the Federal Reserve Policy on Payment System Risk related to a new posting time and an increase to the daylight overdraft fee rate.

Regulations H and K: Registration of Mortgage Loan Originators
Document Number: 2019-09948
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-15
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) is repealing its regulations that incorporated the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (the S.A.F.E. Act). Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd- Frank Act) transferred rulemaking authority for a number of consumer financial protection laws, including the S.A.F.E. Act, from the Board to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau). In December 2011, the Bureau published an interim final rule, incorporating the S.A.F.E. Act into its Regulations G and H. In April 2016, the Bureau finalized the interim final rule. Accordingly, the Board is repealing its S.A.F.E. Act regulations.
Prudential Standards for Large Foreign Banking Organizations; Revisions to Proposed Prudential Standards for Large Domestic Bank Holding Companies and Savings and Loan Holding Companies
Document Number: 2019-07895
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-15
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is requesting comment on a proposed rule that would revise the framework for applying the enhanced prudential standards applicable to foreign banking organizations under section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, as amended by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. The proposal would establish categories that would be used to tailor the stringency of enhanced prudential standards based on the risk profile of a foreign banking organization's operations in the United States. The proposal also would amend certain enhanced prudential standards, including standards relating to liquidity, risk management, stress testing, and single-counterparty credit limits, and would make corresponding changes to reporting forms. The proposal would make clarifying revisions and technical changes to the Board's October 31, 2018, proposal for large U.S. bank holding companies and certain savings and loan holding companies relating to the Board's internal liquidity stress testing requirements and GSIB surcharge rule. Separately, the Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) (together, the agencies) are requesting comment on a proposal to revise the applicability of the agencies' capital and liquidity requirements for foreign banking organizations based on the same categories, and the Board is requesting comment on whether it should impose standardized liquidity requirements on the U.S. branch and agency network of a foreign banking organization, as well as possible approaches for doing so. In addition, the Board and the FDIC are separately requesting comment on a proposal to revise the applicability of the resolution planning requirements applicable to large U.S. banking organizations and foreign banking organizations, using a category approach that is broadly consistent with the one set forth in this proposal.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-14
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is inviting public comment on a proposal that would revise the Board's regulations related to determinations of whether a company has the ability to exercise a controlling influence over another company for purposes of the Bank Holding Company Act or the Home Owners' Loan Act. The proposal would significantly expand the number of presumptions for use in such determinations. By codifying the presumptions in the Board's Regulation Y and Regulation LL, the Board's rules would provide substantial additional transparency on the types of relationships that the Board would view as supporting a determination that one company controls another company. The proposed presumptions generally would be consistent with the Board's historical practice with respect to the types of relationships that raise, or do not raise, significant controlling influence concerns. Several of the proposed presumptions, however, would represent targeted adjustments relative to the Board's historical practice. Finally, the proposal would include various definitions and ancillary rules to ensure that the application of the proposed presumptions is clear, transparent, and consistent.

Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System
The Board and the Corporation (together, the agencies) are inviting comment on a proposal to amend and restate the jointly issued regulation (the Rule) implementing the resolution planning requirements of section 165(d) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act). The proposal is intended to reflect improvements identified since the Rule was finalized in November 2011 and to address amendments to the Dodd-Frank Act made by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA). The proposed amendments to the Rule include a proposal by the Board to establish risk-based categories for determining the application of the resolution planning requirement to certain U.S. and foreign banking organizations, consistent with section 401 of EGRRCPA, and a proposal by the agencies to extend the default resolution plan filing cycle, allow for more focused resolution plan submissions, and improve certain aspects of the Rule.

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (``Board'') is amending Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions) to revise the rate of interest paid on balances maintained to satisfy reserve balance requirements (``IORR'') and the rate of interest paid on excess balances (``IOER'') maintained at Federal Reserve Banks by or on behalf of eligible institutions. The final amendments specify that IORR is 2.35 percent and IOER is 2.35 percent, a 0.05 percentage point decrease from their prior levels. The amendments are intended to enhance the role of such rates of interest in maintaining the Federal funds rate into the target range established by the Federal Open Market Committee (``FOMC'' or ``Committee'').
