Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 244 / Thursday, December 23, 2021 / Rules and Regulations
Commission has promulgated to
implement the Federal Election
Campaign Act, 52 U.S.C. 30101 through
45 (‘‘FECA’’). The Commission is
promulgating these corrections without
advance notice or an opportunity for
comment because they fall under the
‘‘good cause’’ exemption of the
Administrative Procedure Act (‘‘APA’’).
5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) The Commission
finds that notice and comment are
unnecessary here because these
corrections are merely typographical
and technical; they effect no substantive
changes to any rule. For the same
reason, these corrections fall within the
‘‘good cause’’ exception to the delayed
effective date provisions of the APA and
the Congressional Review Act. 5 U.S.C.
553(d)(3) and 808(2).
Moreover, because these corrections
are exempt from the notice and
comment procedure of the APA under 5
U.S.C. 553(b), the Commission is not
required to conduct a regulatory
flexibility analysis under 5 U.S.C. 603 or
604. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2) and 604(a). Nor
is the Commission required to submit
these revisions for congressional review
under FECA, the Presidential Election
Campaign Fund Act, 26 U.S.C. 9001
through 13, or the Presidential Primary
Matching Payment Account Act, 26
U.S.C. 9031 through 42. See 52 U.S.C.
30111(d)(1) and (4) (providing for
congressional review when Commission
‘‘prescribe[s]’’ a ‘‘rule of law’’); 26
U.S.C. 9009(c)(1) and (4), 9039(c)(1) and
(4) (same). Accordingly, these
corrections are effective upon
publication in the Federal Register.
Corrections to FECA Rules in Chapter
I of Title 11 of the Code of Federal
Regulations
A. Correction to 11 CFR 1.2
In 2018, the Commission relocated to
a new building with a different street
address. The Commission is updating
this section by removing references to
the relocation and the Commission’s
prior address.
B. Correction to 11 CFR 104.2
Most filers now utilize electronic
filing rather than paper forms to submit
reports to the Commission. Accordingly,
the Commission is revising this section
to add that forms may be obtained
electronically from the Commission’s
website as well as in paper format at the
updated street address identified in the
definition of ‘‘Commission’’ at § 1.2.
C. Correction to 11 CFR 110.1
The Commission is revising paragraph
(b)(3)(ii)(C) of this section because it
erroneously refers to § 116.11(b) as the
citation for the definition of ‘‘personal
loans.’’ The correct definition is located
at § 116.11(a).

NATIONAL CREDIT UNION
ADMINISTRATION
12 CFR Parts 702 and 703
RIN 3133–AF12
Capital Adequacy: The Complex Credit
Union Leverage Ratio; Risk-Based
Capital
AGENCY
: National Credit Union
Administration (NCUA).
ACTION
: Final rule.
SUMMARY
: This final rule provides a
simplified measure of capital adequacy
for federally insured, natural-person
credit unions (credit unions) classified
as complex (those with total assets
greater than $500 million). Under the
final rule, a complex credit union that
maintains a minimum net worth ratio,
and that meets other qualifying criteria,
is eligible to opt into the complex credit
union leverage ratio (CCULR)
framework if they have a minimum net
worth ratio of nine percent. A complex
credit union that opts into the CCULR
framework need not calculate a risk-
based capital ratio under the NCUA
Board’s October 29, 2015 risk-based
capital final rule, as amended on
October 18, 2018. A qualifying complex
credit union that opts into the CCULR
framework and maintains the minimum
net worth ratio is considered well
capitalized. The final rule also makes
several amendments to update the
NCUA’s October 29, 2015 risk-based
capital final rule, including addressing
asset securitizations issued by credit
unions, clarifying the treatment of off-
balance sheet exposures, deducting
certain mortgage servicing assets from a
complex credit union’s risk-based
capital numerator, revising the
treatment of goodwill, and amending
other asset risk weights.
DATES
: The final rule is effective January
1, 2022.
