SUMMARY:

On October 30, 2000, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) published a notice entitled “Solicitation of Public Comments on Systemic Risk” in the Federal Register (65 FR 64718). OFHEO sought to examine the nature and magnitude of any risks the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Start Printed Page 79905Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) may pose to the financial system in general and to the U.S. housing finance markets in particular; whether and to what extent Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac contribute to or mitigate systemic risk; and actions that OFHEO and others could take to limit any systemic risk the Enterprises may pose. OFHEO has been requested to extend the comment period. To ensure that the public has ample opportunity to participate in the solicitation, today's notice extends the public comment period from December 29, 2000, through January 29, 2001.

DATES:

The comment period is extended until January 29, 2001.
