Subject: Request for Extension of Comment Period

The Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation, on behalf of the System Banks and Associations, appreciates this opportunity to comment on the advanced notice of proposed rulemaking published in the October 31, 2007 Federal Register concerning possible modifications to the risk-based capital rules for Farm Credit System institutions.  The System is supportive of the Agency' s regulatory effort to modernize the regulatory capital requirements for System institutions and appreciates the opportunity extended to-date to dialogue with the Agency.  However, for the reasons discussed in the attached letter, we would like to request an extension of the comment period to December 31, 2008.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact John Marsh (201-200-8071) or me (201-200-8001).
