Federal Reserve Press Release

Release Date: August 12, 2011

For immediate release

The Federal Reserve Board on Friday issued an interim final rule establishing regulations for savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs). The rule will take effect once it is published in the Federal Register, which is expected soon.

Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, supervisory and rulemaking authority for SLHCs and their nondepository subsidiaries transferred from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) to the Board on July 21, 2011. Last month, the Board sought comment on a notice identifying regulations previously issued by the OTS that the Federal Reserve will continue to enforce. The interim final rule issued Friday implements the transfer of those regulations from the OTS to the Board.

The Board on Friday also issued an Order delegating to staff and to the Reserve Banks the authority to take certain actions with respect to SLHCs.

The Board will accept comments on the interim final rule through October 27, 2011.
