Regulation A: Extensions of Credit by Federal Reserve Banks
Document Number: 2017-26465
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-08
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (``Board'') is proposing to amend its Regulation A to; revise the provisions regarding the establishment of the primary credit rate in a financial emergency, and to delete the provisions relating to the use of credit ratings for collateral for extensions of credit under the former Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF). The proposed amendments are intended to allow the regulation to address circumstances in which the Federal Open Market Committee has established a target range for the federal funds rate rather than a single target rate, and to reflect the expiration of the TALF program.
