Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The following agenda of Commission proceedings is published in 
accordance with section 22(d)(1) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 
15 U.S.C. 57b-3(d)(1), and section 610(c) of the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. 610(c). Except for notice of completed actions, the 
information in this agenda represents the judgment of Commission staff 
based upon information now available, and each projected date reflects 
an assessment by the FTC staff of the likelihood that the specified 
event will occur during the coming year. No final determination by the 
staff or the Commission respecting the need for or the substance of a 
trade regulation rule or any other procedural option should be inferred 
from the notation of projected events in this agenda.

    In most instances, the dates of future events are listed by 
month, not by a specific day. Acquisition of new information, 
change of circumstances, or changes in the law may alter the 
information set forth in this agenda. Several agenda items concern 
rulemaking proceedings that may affect a substantial number of 
small businesses as that term is used in the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act. Whether the likely economic impact on such entities is 
significant will depend upon the outcome of the particular 
proceeding.

    For this edition of the Commission's regulatory agenda, the 
most important significant regulatory actions are included in The 
Regulatory Plan, which appears in Part II of this issue of the 
Federal Register. The Regulatory Plan entries are listed in the 
Table of Contents below and are denoted by a bracketed bold 
reference, which directs the reader to the appropriate Sequence 
Number in Part II.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Further details may be obtained from 
the agency contact person listed for each particular proceeding.

By direction of the Commission.

Donald S. Clark,

Secretary.

5106. AMENDED FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE ACT

Legal Authority:  12 USC 1811 et seq, Federal Deposit Insurance Act

CFR Citation:  Not yet determined

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: On December 19, 1991, the Federal Deposit Insurance 
Corporation Improvement Act of 1991, Pub. L. No. 102-242, 105 Stat. 
2236, 12 USC 1811, was signed into law. This law assigns to the FTC new 
responsibilities for certain non-federally insured depository 
institutions (DIs) and private deposit insurers of such DIs. The law 
imposes certain disclosure requirements on DIs, requires private 
deposit insurers to obtain annual audits from independent auditors 
using generally accepted accounting techniques, and requires private 
deposit insurers to file copies of the annual audit reports with each 
DI they insure and with each state in which such DIs receive deposits. 
DIs must also provide copies of their insurer's audit reports to 
current or prospective customers upon request. Non-federally funded DIs 
may not use the mails or any instrumentality of interstate commerce to 
receive deposits unless the appropriate state supervisor has determined 
that the institution meets all eligibility requirements for federal 
deposit insurance. The FTC is required to prescribe, by regulation or 
order, the manner and content of three affirmative disclosures required 
of DIs that lack Federal Deposit (cont)

Government Levels Affected: State

Additional Information: ABSTRACT CONT: insurance. Such DIs must: (1) 
include in all periodic account statements and certain other documents 
a notice that the institution is not federally insured and that the 
Federal government does not guarantee that depositors ``will get back 
their money'' if the institution fails; (2) include such a notice that 
the DI is not federally insured in all advertising and at each place 
where deposits are normally received; and (3) receive deposits only for 
persons who have signed a written acknowledgment that the institution 
is not federally insured and that the Federal government does not 
guarantee that such persons ``will get back their money'' if the 
institution fails. The Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, The 
Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1993, Pub. L. No. 
102-393, 106 Stat. 1820, containing the Commission's appropriation for 
fiscal year 1993, provided that none of the funds were available for 
expenses authorized by Section 151 of the FDICIA. Legislation 
containing the Commission's appropriation for fiscal year 1994 contains 
the same provision. Thus, Commission implementation and enforcement of 
FDICIA is on hold.

Abstract: The Fur Products Labeling Act (Fur Act) requires covered furs
