SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On July 6, 2009, SBA published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the creation of the Dealer Floor Plan Pilot Initiative. (74 FR 32006) The announcement of this pilot initiative generated a significant level of interest among those small businesses and lenders that traditionally utilize floor plan financing. Given the scope of the proposal and the nature of the issues raised by the comments received to date, SBA believes that affected parties need more time to review the proposal and prepare their comments. As a result, SBA is re-opening the comment period for an additional 45 days.
