Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking: Extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

On March 31, 2020, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) entitled “Parent Companies of Industrial Banks and Industrial Loan Companies” proposing a rule that would require certain conditions and commitments for each deposit insurance application approval, non-objection to a change in control notice, and merger application approval that would result in an insured industrial bank or industrial loan company becoming, after the effective date of any final rule, a subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision by the Federal Reserve Board. The proposed rule also would require that before any industrial bank or industrial loan company may become a subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision by the Federal Reserve Board, such company and the industrial bank or industrial loan company must enter into one or more written agreements with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The NPR provided for a 60-day comment period, which would have closed on June 1, 2020. The FDIC has determined that an extension of the comment period until July 1, 2020, is appropriate. This action will allow interested parties additional time to analyze the proposal and prepare comments.

DATES:

The comment period for the NPR on parent companies of industrial banks and industrial loan companies published on March 31, 2020 (85 FR 17771), is extended from June 1, 2020, to July 1, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 31, 2020, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation published in the Federal Register[1] an NPR proposing a new rule, Part 354 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, that would require certain conditions, commitments, and written agreements for each deposit insurance application approval, non-objection to a change in control notice, and merger application approval that would result in an insured industrial bank or industrial loan company becoming, after the effective date of any final rule, a subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision by the Federal Reserve Board.

The NPR stated the comment period would close on June 1, 2020. An extension of the comment period will provide additional time for interested parties to prepare comments to address the matters raised in the NPR. Therefore, the FDIC is extending the comment period for the NPR on parent companies of industrial banks and industrial loan companies from June 1, 2020, to July 1, 2020.
