For immediate release

November 26, 1980

The Federal Reserve Board today announced that, effective
imnediately, it will make available to members of the public, upon
request, final agency enforcement documents or portions of such
documents, as the case may be, issued by the Board to enforce the
Truth-in-Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair
Housing Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Electronic Funds
Transfer Act, the Fair Debt Collection Act, the Fair Credit Billing
Act, and the Community Reinvestment Act.

Such documents and portions

of documents will be made available without charge but with identifying
details relating to financial institutions and third parties removed
to protect valid interests of confidentiality.

This action was taken

in order to accomplish the fullest possible public disclosure of
information consistent with such valid interests of confidentiality.
