Regulation WW: Liquidity Coverage Ratio: Treatment of U.S. Municipal Securities as High-Quality Liquid Assets [R-1514]

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) invites public comment on a proposed rule that would amend the Board's liquidity coverage ratio requirement (LCR) to include certain U.S. municipal securities as high-quality liquid assets (HQLA). The proposed rule would include as level 2B liquid assets under the LCR general obligation securities of a public sector entity that meet the same criteria as corporate debt securities that are included as level 2B liquid assets, subject to limits that are intended to address the unique structure of the U.S. municipal securities market.
