Federal Reserve seeks comment on notice outlining regulations previously issued by the Office of Thrift Supervision
For immediate release
The Federal Reserve Board is seeking comment on a notice that outlines the regulations previously issued by the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) that the Federal Reserve will continue to enforce after assuming supervisory responsibility for savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs).
Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, supervisory and rule-writing authority for SLHCs and their non-depository subsidiaries will transfer from the OTS to the Board on July 21, 2011. The Board requests comments on the notice by August 31, 2011.
The Board intends to issue an interim final rule soon that will include technical, nomenclature, and other changes to certain OTS regulations to accommodate the transfer of supervisory authority to the Board and to address modifications made by the Dodd-Frank Act.
