The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System recently received notice that 83 comment letters submitted between March 22, 2008, and September 8, 2008, via the Federal eRulemaking Portal ( on four of the Board's rulemaking proposals [Docket No. R-1286, Regulation Z, Truth in Lending (73 FR 28867, May 19, 2008); Docket No. R-1314, Regulation AA, Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices (73 FR 28905, May 19, 2008); Docket No. R-1315, Regulation DD, Truth in Savings (73 FR 28739, May 19, 2008); and Docket No. R-1316, Regulation V, Fair Credit Reporting (73 FR 28966, May 19, 2008)] that have not been acted on were not forwarded to the Board, due to a software problem at that portal.[1] The problem affects comments that were sent only to the eRulemaking Portal. Comments sent by other means (by e-mail to the Board's comments mailbox, by facsimile, or by mail) are not affected. Because the identities of the commenters affected by this software problem are not retrievable, the Board requests that before resubmitting a comment, you review the Board's Web site at:​generalinfo/​foia/​ProposedRegs.cfm to determine if your comment has been posted. If the comment that you submitted has not been posted, you may re-submit your comment by using this link:​generalinfo/​foia/​LostComments.cfm.
