SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 18, 2010, the NCUA Board issued proposed amendments to its rule governing corporate credit unions (corporates) contained in part 704. The amendments include internal control and reporting requirements for corporates similar to those required for banks under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The amendments require each corporate to establish an enterprise-wide risk management committee staffed with at least one risk management expert. The amendments provide for the equitable sharing of Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund expenses among all members of corporates, including both credit union and noncredit union members. The amendments increase the transparency of decision-making by requiring corporates conduct all board of director votes as recorded votes and include the votes of individual directors in the meeting minutes. The amendments permit corporates to charge their members reasonable one-time or periodic membership fees as necessary to facilitate retained earnings growth. For senior corporate executives who are dual employees of corporate credit union service organizations (CUSOs), the amendments require disclosure of certain compensation received from the corporate CUSO. In addition, this proposal would amend parts 701 and 741 to limit natural person credit unions to membership in one corporate credit union at any particular time and provide that a natural person credit union may not make any investment in a corporate credit union of which the natural person credit union is not also a member. 75 FR 73000 (November 29, 2010).

NCUA requested comments on its proposal and set a 30-day comment period, originally scheduled to end on December 29, 2010. NCUA has received a request to extend the comment period. The NCUA Board believes a 30-day extension will facilitate the submission of comments without causing undue delay to the rulemaking process. Accordingly, the comment period is extended and comments must now be received by January 28, 2011.
