FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION
12 CFR Part 354
RIN 3064-AF31
Parent Companies of Industrial Banks and Industrial Loan
Companies; Extension of Comment Period
AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking: Extension of comment period.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: On March 31, 2020, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR)
entitled ``Parent Companies of Industrial Banks and Industrial Loan
Companies'' proposing a rule that would require certain conditions and
commitments for each deposit insurance application approval, non-
objection to a change in control notice, and merger application
approval that would result in an insured industrial bank or industrial
loan company becoming, after the effective date of any final rule, a
subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision
by the Federal Reserve Board. The proposed rule also would require that
before any industrial bank or industrial loan company may become a
subsidiary of a company that is not subject to consolidated supervision
by the Federal Reserve Board, such company and the industrial bank or
industrial loan company must enter into one or more written agreements
with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The NPR provided for a
60-day comment period, which would have closed on June 1, 2020. The
FDIC has determined that an extension of the comment period until July
1, 2020, is appropriate. This action will allow interested parties
additional time to analyze the proposal and prepare comments.
DATES: The comment period for the NPR on parent companies of industrial
banks and industrial loan companies published on March 31, 2020 (85 FR
17771), is extended from June 1, 2020, to July 1, 2020.

 The NPR stated the comment period would close on June 1, 2020. An
extension of the comment period will provide additional time for
interested parties to prepare comments to address the matters raised in
the NPR. Therefore, the FDIC is extending the comment period for the
NPR on parent companies of industrial banks and industrial loan
companies from June 1, 2020, to July 1, 2020.
