FEDERAL RESERVE BANK
OF DALLAS

Dallas, Texas, February 26, 1940

IN D E X TO R E G U LA T IO N S

To the Member Banks o f the
Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

There is enclosed for the convenience of your bank a detailed index to
the current regulations o f the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve
System. It is suggested that it be inserted in the ring binder containing a
complete set of the regulations which was sent your bank last year.
The binder already contains a condensed index, showing the general
subject covered in each regulation. It is believed, however, that the enclosed
detailed index will be helpful in locating promptly the regulatory rules
applicable to specific transactions, as it lists in alphabetical order the more
important subdivisions of all of the various subjects covered by the Board’s
regulations and indicates the particular regulation in which the desired
information may be found.

Yours very truly,
R. R. GILBERT,
President

BOARD OF GOVERNORS
OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM

IN D E X TO REGU LATIO N S

F e b r u a r y 1 , 1940

FOREWORD
There is published herewith a single consolidated index to all
of the regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve
System which are now in effect. References in the index in each case
are to the letter by which the regulation is designated and the section
number of the regulation.
To facilitate the use of the index, it has been printed in a form
similar to that of the regulations in order that it may conveniently
be placed in a loose-leaf binder, if desired, along with the current
prints of the Board’s regulations.
A list of the latest reprints or revisions of the regulations of the
Board of Governors is printed on the pages immediately following.
It should be noted that Regulations K and L have been amended
since the date of the last reprint or revision and that these amend­
ments, although covered by this index, are not incorporated in the
latest prints of those regulations. For this reason, wherever reference
is made to amendments not contained in the current print of a regula­
tion, this fact has been indicated in the index by an appropriate
footnote.
February 1, 1940.

SECTION III. CLASS OF WARRANTS ELIGIBLE FOR PURCHASE

Any Federal Reserve bank may purchase warrants issued by a
municipality in anticipation of the collection o f taxes or in anti­
cipation o f the receipt o f assured revenues, provided—
(a) They are the general obligations of the entire munici­
pality ; it being intended to exclude as ineligible for purchase

“ special assessment” taxes when the municipality at large
is not directly or ultimately liable;
( b) They are issued in anticipation o f taxes or revenues
which are due and payable on or before the date of maturity
o f such w arrants; but the Board o f Governors o f the Federal
Reserve System may waive this condition in specific cases.
For the purposes o f this regulation, taxes shall be considered
as due and payable on the last day on which they may be
paid without penalty;
( c) They are issued by a municipality—
(1) Which has been in existence fo r a period of 10
years;
(2) Which fo r a period o f 10 years previous to the
purchase has not defaulted fo r longer than 15 days in
the payment o f any part of either principal or interest
o f any funded debt authorized to be contracted by it;
(3) Whose net funded indebtedness does not exceed
10 per centum of the valuation o f its taxable property,
to be ascertained by the last preceding valuation o f
property fo r the assessment o f taxes.

E

5

(1 ) Warrants issued by or in behalf o f any municipality which
was, subsequent to the issuance of such warrants, consolidated
with or merged into an existing political division which meets
the requirements of these regulations, will be deemed to be the
warrants of such political division: Provided, That such war­
rants were assumed by such political division under statutes and
appropriate proceedings the effect o f which is to make such war­
rants general obligations o f such assuming political division and
payable, either directly or ultimately, without limitation to a
special fund from the proceeds o f taxes levied upon all the tax­
able real and personal property within its territorial limits.
(2) Warrants issued by or in behalf o f any municipality which
was, subsequent to the issuance of such warrants, wholly suc­
ceeded by a newly organized political division whose term o f
existence, added to that o f such original political division or of
any other political division so succeeded, is equal to a period o f 10
years will be deemed to be warrants of such succeeding political
division : Provided, That during such period none of such political
divisions shall have defaulted fo r a period exceeding 15 days in
the payment or any part o f either principal or interest of any
funded debt authorized to be contracted by it: And provided
further. That such warrants were assumed by such new political
division under statutes and appropriate proceedings the effect of
which is to make such warrants general obligations of such
assuming political division and payable, either directly or ulti­
mately, without limitation to a special fund from the proceeds of
taxes levied upon all the taxable real and personal property with­
in its territorial limits.
(3) Warrants issued by or in behalf o f any municipality
which, prior to such issuance, became the successor of one or
more, or was formed by the consolidation or merger of two or
more, preexisting political divisions, the term o f existence of one
or more of which, added to that of such succeeding or consoli­
dated political division, is equal to a period o f 10 years, will be
deemed to be warrants of a political division which has been in
existence fo r a period of 10 years: Provided, That during such
period none o f such original, succeeding, or consolidated political
divisions shall have defaulted fo r a period exceeding 15 days in
the payment o f any part o f either principal or interest of any
funded debt authorized to be contracted by it.
