This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Small Business Administration.
Final rule; correcting amendment.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) published a final rule governing 7(a) loan securitizations on February 10, 1999. In that rule, SBA inadvertently omitted a sentence in the section covering capital requirements for securitizing institutions (“securitizers”). This document adds that sentence.
Effective on August 14, 2000.Start Further Info

SBA published a final rule in the Federal Register on February 10, 1999, (64 FR 6503), governing 7(a) loan securitizations. This correction adds a sentence to § 120.425(a), on capital requirements, that was inadvertently omitted. Section 120.425(a) provides that all “securitizers must be considered to be ‘well capitalized’ by their regulator.” It further states that “SBA, as the regulator, will consider a nondepository institution to be ‘well capitalized’ if it maintains a minimum unencumbered paid in capital and paid in surplus equal to at least 10 percent of its assets, excluding the guaranteed portion of 7(a) loans.” This correction adds that “[t]he capital charge applies to the remaining balance outstanding on the unguaranteed portion of the securitizer's 7(a) loans in its portfolio and in any securitization pools.”
This correction is consistent with notice provided in the preamble to the final rule published on February 10, 1999 (64 FR 6503). That preamble stated that commenters requested SBA to clarify that “the capital charge applies not only to the unguaranteed portion of the securitizer's 7(a) loans in the portfolio but also to the remaining balance outstanding in the securitization pools” and that SBA “incorporated” this clarification “into the final rule.”
By making this correction, SBA is incorporating the clarification, as intended, into the final rule.Start List of Subjects
