The Board also the feedback letter for each firm. The letters note that the agencies intend to issue for notice and comment proposed revisions to the resolution plan rule, including changes to implement the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection (EGRRCP) Act. The letters also outline the expectations under the current rule requirements and explain that, in most cases, the agencies generally expect the 2019 submission of each firm to include only material changes from its previous plan and updated financial statements.
