Proposed rule; extension of reply comment date.

This action is taken in response to a request for additional time submitted by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. We find that providing the requested limited extension would be beneficial to the development of a more robust and complete record and that granting the extension of time as requested by the Federal Reserve will serve the public interest.
