On June 16, 2008, the Farm Credit Administration published a proposed rule on Rural Community Investments (73 FR 33931). We received over 10,000 comment letters providing support for or opposition to the proposed rule. After review and consideration of the proposed rule, we have decided to withdraw it. We will continue to review mission-related investments and may issue a proposed rule in the future if we determine that a rule of general applicability is appropriate.
