Federal Reserve Issues Interim Rules for Savings and Loan Holding Companies


The Federal Reserve (the Board) on August 12 issued an interim final rule establishing regulations for savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs). Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act), supervisory and rulemaking authority for SLHCs and their nondepository subsidiaries transferred from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) (now defunct) to the Board on July 21, 2011. Last month, the Federal Reserve 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 on August 12 implements the transfer of those regulations from the OTS to the Federal Reserve.

The interim final rule has three components: (1) new Regulation LL (Part 238), which sets forth regulations generally governing SLHCs; (2) new Regulation MM (Part 239), which sets forth regulations governing SLHCs in mutual form; and (3) technical amendments to current Board regulations necessary to accommodate the transfer of supervisory authority for SLHCs from the OTS to the Board.
