FED has temporarily approved revisions to the mandatory Complex Institution Liquidity Monitoring Report (FR 2052a), pursuant to the authority delegated to FED by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The temporary approval is valid until March 31, 2019. The revisions are applicable as of June 30, 2018. FED also published the OMB supporting statement for FR 2052a, which is used to monitor the overall liquidity profile of institutions supervised by FED.
The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection (EGRRCP) Act of May 24, 2018 amended various provisions of banking law to eliminate or reduce statutory and regulatory requirements for certain banking organizations. Section 403 of EGRRCP Act provides that the federal banking agencies shall treat certain municipal obligations as high-quality liquid assets (HQLA) for the purpose of their liquidity regulations and must amend those regulations to reflect this new treatment within 90 days of the enactment of EGRRCP Act. The federal banking agencies, on August 22, 2018, issued an interim final rule amending their liquidity regulations (the Liquidity IFR). The current FR 2052a instructions are inconsistent with the provisions of EGRRCP Act. FED has revised the FR 2052a to provide that respondents are permitted to report investment-grade municipal obligations as HQLA, consistent with the EGRRCP Act and the Liquidity IFR.
