FDIC Board to consider proposal on capital, liquidity requirement thresholds

Regulatory capital and liquidity requirement thresholds will be on tap for an open meeting of the board of the federal insurer of deposits in banks next week, the agency said Wednesday.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) said it will consider a notice of proposed rulemaking for changes to applicability thresholds for regulatory capital requirements and liquidity requirements at a meeting of its board next Tuesday (Nov. 20) at 10 a.m. The proposed changes are the only item on the board’s discussion agenda.

Other items on the board’s agenda (and not expected to be subject to discussion, unless a board member requests it to be) include:

  • Regulatory capital rule: Capital simplification for qualifying community banking organizations.
  • Notice of proposed rulemaking to increase the appraisal threshold for residential real estate transactions, implement the residential rural exemption, and require appropriate appraisal review.
  • Final rule on transferred Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) regulations regarding fiduciary powers of state savings associations and consent requirements for the exercise of trust powers.
  • Final rule to revise agency regulations concerning inflation-adjusted maximum civil money penalty amounts.
