The Federal Reserve Board on Thursday announced the agenda and

Board gather information about whether its current regulations are
working as intended and what changes might be needed.

representatives from community and consumer organizations, mortgage
lenders, researchers, federal government officials, and other interested
parties. Members of the public are invited to express their opinions
