Statement on Regulatory Burden

ACTION: Notice of intent; comment period extension.

SUMMARY: The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) Board extends the comment period on the Regulatory Burden Notice for 60 more days so interested parties have additional time to identify those regulations and policies that impose unnecessary burdens on Farm Credit System (FCS) institutions.

DATES: Please send your comments to us on or before January 19, 1999.

ADDRESSES: You may mail or deliver comments to Patricia W.
