SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 17, 2009, the NCUA Board issued a proposed rule to amend its chartering and field of membership manual to update its community chartering policies. The amendments include using objective and quantifiable criteria to determine the existence of a local community and defining the term “rural district.” The amendments clarify NCUA's marketing plan requirements for credit unions converting to or expanding their community charters and define the term “in danger of insolvency” for emergency merger purposes. 74 FR 68722 (December 29, 2009).

NCUA requested comments on its proposal and set a 60-day comment period. NCUA has received several requests to extend the comment period. The NCUA Board believes a 45-day extension will help facilitate the submission of comments without causing undue delay to the rulemaking process. Accordingly, the comment period is extended and comments must now be postmarked or received by April 15, 2010.

Secretary of the Board.
