Collection of Checks and Other Items by Federal Reserve Banks and Funds Transfers Through Fedwire: Elimination of “As-of Adjustments” and Other Clarifications
Document Number: 2011-26811
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-10-18
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is requesting public comment on proposed amendments to Regulation J (Collection of Checks and Other Items by Federal Reserve Banks and Funds Transfers through Fedwire). The proposed changes would eliminate references to ``as-of adjustments'' consistent with the Board's proposed amendments to Regulation D to simplify reserves administration. The proposed amendments would also clarify that an institution's Administrative Reserve Bank is deemed to have accepted deposit of a check or other item even if the institution sends the item directly to another Federal Reserve Bank. The proposed amendments would further clarify that Regulation J continues to apply to a Fedwire funds transfer even if the funds transfer also meets the definition of ``remittance transfer'' under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act.
Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions: Reserves Simplification and Private Sector Adjustment Factor
Document Number: 2011-26770
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-10-18
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is requesting public comment on proposed amendments to Regulation D, Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions, to simplify the administration of reserve requirements. The proposed amendments would create a common two-week maintenance period for all depository institutions, create a penalty-free band around reserve balance requirements in place of carryover and routine penalty waivers, discontinue as-of adjustments related to deposit revisions, replace all other as-of adjustments with direct compensation, and eliminate the contractual clearing balance program. The proposed amendments are designed to reduce the administrative and operational costs associated with reserve requirements for both depository institutions and the Federal Reserve. The Board is requesting comment on all aspects of the proposal. In connection with the proposed elimination of the contractual clearing balance program, the Board is requesting comment on several issues related to the methodology used for the Private Sector Adjustment Factor that is part of the pricing of Federal Reserve Bank services.

The OCC, Board, FDIC, FCA, and NCUA (collectively, the Agencies) are finalizing two new questions and answers, one relating to insurable value and one relating to force placement, and withdrawing one question and answer regarding insurable value. The two final questions and answers supplement the ``Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Flood Insurance'' (Interagency Questions and Answers), which were published on July 21, 2009 (74 FR 35914). Based on comments received, the Agencies also have significantly revised two questions and answers regarding force placement of flood insurance that were initially proposed on July 21, 2009, and are proposing revision to a previously finalized question and answer. These three revised questions and answers are being proposed for comment.
