The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) has approved the private sector adjustment factor (PSAF) for 2012 of $29.9 million and the 2012 fee schedules for Federal Reserve priced services and electronic access.

The Board has also approved maintaining the current earnings credit rate on clearing balances.

Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions
Document Number: 2011-28048
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-11-03
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is amending Regulation D, Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions, to reflect the annual indexing of the reserve requirement exemption amount and the low reserve tranche for 2012. The Regulation D amendments set the amount of total reservable liabilities of each depository institution that is subject to a zero percent reserve requirement in 2012 at $11.5 million (up from $10.7 million in 2011). This amount is known as the reserve requirement exemption amount. The Regulation D amendments also set the amount of net transaction accounts at each depository institution that is subject to a three percent reserve requirement in 2012 at $71.0 million (up from $58.8 million in 2011). This amount is known as the low reserve tranche. The adjustments to both of these amounts are derived using statutory formulas specified in the Federal Reserve Act. The Board is also announcing changes in two other amounts, the nonexempt deposit cutoff level and the reduced reporting limit, that are used to determine the frequency at which depository institutions must submit deposit reports.

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.

Equal Credit Opportunity
Document Number: 2011-24300
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-09-26
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is publishing a final rule amending Regulation B (Equal Credit Opportunity). Section 704B of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), as added by Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act or Act), requires that financial institutions collect and report information concerning credit applications made by women or minority-owned businesses and by small businesses. ECOA Section 704B became effective on the date that general rulemaking authority for ECOA was transferred to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB or Bureau), which was July 21, 2011. Although the CFPB has the authority to issue rules to implement ECOA Section 704B for most entities, the Board retains authority to issue rules for certain motor vehicle dealers. This final rule excepts motor vehicle dealers subject to the Board's jurisdiction from the requirements of ECOA Section 704B until the effective date of final rules issued by the Board to implement that provision.
