The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has proposed significant revisions to Federal Home Loan Bank membership eligibility requirements. If adopted the Propose Rule would have a profound impact on the FHLB System, FHLBanks and FHLB members. A thorough analysis and in-depth discussion of the intended and unintended consequences of the Rule requires an extension of the proposed 60 day comment period. CBAI has submitted a formal request to the FHFA to extend the comment period by at least an additional 60 days. Read CBAI Letter.
