Communications with the Public
During the Federal Reserve Board’s rulemaking process, meetings will take place between the Board and the public—including, for example, representatives of bank organizations, consumer groups, trade associations, researchers, and academics--that allow the Board to gather information and help educate the public on matters subject to agency rulemaking. These meetings contribute to an informed rulemaking process.
To help ensure the process is conducted in a fair, open, and transparent manner, Federal Reserve staff will develop a written summary of communications with the public on any matter subject to proposed rulemaking – either a rulemaking proposed by the Board in a notice of proposed rulemaking or that the Board is required by law to conduct. The summaries will be posted below.
