ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The Board is adopting final amendments to Regulations G, T and U. These amendments are based on proposed amendments issued for comment by the Board in December 1995 (Docket R-0905), April 1996 (Docket R-0923) and November 1996 (Docket R-0944). The amendments reduce regulatory distinctions between broker-dealers, banks, and other lenders and implement changes to the Board's securities credit regulations to reflect changes to the Board's statutory authority under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the National Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996.
