On August 11, 2003, we published a proposed rule in the Federal Register seeking public comment on amendments to regulations governing other financing institutions and investments in Farmers' notes. The comment period expired on October 10, 2003. See 68 FR 47502, August 11, 2003. One member of the public has requested that the FCA provide interested parties an additional 60 days to comment. In response to this request, we are reopening the comment period until December 22, 2003, so all interested parties have more time to respond. The FCA supports public involvement and participation in its regulatory and policy process and invites all interested parties to review and provide comments on the proposed rule.Start Signature
