SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 29, 2009, the Board published final rules amending Regulation DD, which implements the Truth in Savings Act, and the official staff commentary to the regulation. The final rule, among other things, requires all depository institutions to disclose aggregate overdraft fees on periodic statements, and not solely institutions that promote the payment of overdrafts. However, the document published in the Federal Register on January 29, 2009 contains a technical error in the formatting of the sample form illustrating how institutions may comply with this requirement. To correct this error, this document republishes the appropriate sample form.

Basis for the Corrections

The Board is issuing this technical correction as a final rule that will be effective upon publication in the Federal Register. The Administrative Procedure Act (the Act) provides that notice and comment procedures do not apply if the agency for good cause finds notice to be “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” The Act also provides that notice and comment procedures do not apply for interpretive rules. In addition, a rule may be made effective less than thirty days from publication when an agency finds good cause for such action. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A)-(B) and (d)(3).

The Board finds that the Act does not require notice of a proposed rulemaking before the final publication of the corrected sample form. There is good cause to publish the formatting requirements without notice and comment because these procedures are unnecessary. The formatting correction to the sample form is a non-substantive change to the form. The republication merely corrects an error that occurred in the printing of the sample form when it was originally published. For this same reason, the Board finds that there is good cause for the rule to take effect upon publication.

In addition, the correction may be viewed as interpretative in that the form only indicates how the rule should apply, and, therefore, a notice of proposed rulemaking is not required.
