Final Rule-Amendment to Regulation A. (Legal Developments)

Article excerpt

The Board of Governors is amending 12 C.F.R. Part 201, its Regulation A and D (Extensions of Credit by Federal Reserve Banks). The Board is publishing final amendments to Regulation A to reflect its approval of the initial interest rates for extensions of primary and secondary credit. The amendments also correct a typographical error. These amendments supersede the text of one section of the final rule that the Board approved on October 31, 2002, and published in the Federal Register on January 9, 2003. The new primary and secondary credit rates do not indicate a change in the stance of monetary policy.

Effective January 9, 2003, 12 C.F.R. Part 201 is amended as follows:
