Fed Solicits Comment on Two Issues
OMMENT is requested by the
Federal Reserve Board on two
policy statements that directly con­
cern a number of community banks.


Repayment of Debt
The first, calling for comment by
January 31, 1980, would revise the
Fed’s policy that one-bank holding
companies must repay all acquisi­
tion debt within 12 years, while
maintaining a satisfactory level of
capital in the company’s bank sub­
sidiary. The revised policy would
provide that the holding company’s
debt to equity ratio be reduced to no
more than 30 % within 12 years; i.e.,
at least 70 % of acquisition debt be
repaid within 12 years, which is
approximately the level maintained
by many multi-bank holding com­
However, the Fed additionally
stipulates that the proposed criteria
would call for no dividend payments
until such time as the company’s
debt to equity ratio had reached
30% or less, while maintaining cap­
ital at no less than 8% of assets.
Credit Life Income
The second p olicy statem ent
w ould proh ibit insiders in state
member banks from profiting per­
sonally from sales of life insurance in
connection with credit transactions.
Comment on this proposal is re­
quested through March 31, 1980.

Details of the proposed policy state­
ment follow:
Disposition o f Credit Life
Insurance Incom e

For the purpose of helping to preserve the
safety and soundness of financial institu­
tions, the Federal Reserve Board has adopt­
ed the policies set forth below regarding the
disposition of income from the sale of credit
life, health, and accident insurance (“ credit
life insurance” ) related to loans made by
federally insured financial institutions.
(1) Individual officers, directors and prin­
cipal shareholders of a financial institution
should not personally profit from the sale of
credit life insurance to the institution’s loan
(2) A s an accou ntin g and operations
matter, income derived from credit life insur­
ance sales to loan customers should be cred­
ited only to the income accounts of the finan­
cial institutions or, in the case of a savings
and loan association, to its service corpora­
tion, and not to the financial institution’s in­
dividual officers, directors, principal share­
holders, their interests, or other affiliates.
(3) Where State insurance laws or other
legal considerations preclude a financial in­
stitution from using a particular procedure
for selling credit life insurance or from dis­
posing of the income in a particular manner,
a financial institution which wishes to pro­
vide this service to its loan customers shall
seek and utilize an alternative method that
complies with 1 and 2 above.
(4) The proper method for the distribution
to shareholders or to an affiliated holding
company of income derived from credit life
insurance or other income sources is through
a declaration of dividend in conformity with
law, rule, regulation and prudent financial
(5) Financial institutions not now subject
to a rule, regulation or policy statement on

within one year following publication in the
Federal Register of the final policy state­
ment . M odifications beyond that time will be
granted only where a clear hardship exists
and satisfactory assurance is provided that
compliance with 1 and 2 above will be
achieved within an appropriate time period.

On yet another matter, the Fed
Board emphasized it will regard as
an “ extremely serious matter” —
possibly resulting in civil penalties
or referral for prosecution—any vio­
lation of the Bank Holding Com­
pany A ct resulting from failure by
affected bank holding companies to
comply with a December 31, 1980,
deadline for divestiture of nonbanking activities.
The message was directed to cer­
tain companies that became bank
holding companies by virtue of the
1970 amendments to the BHC Act.
These are ones that acquired non­
bank activities between June 30,
1968, and December 30,1970. Those
1980 amendments generally require
that unless these companies drop
their bank they must (1) divest such
nonbank subsidiaries or (2) get
Board approval to keep them, by
December 31, 1980. A number of
companies have not yet complied
fully with the 1980 requirements of
the Act. Those companies are sup­
posed to submit by January 31,
1980, to the Board a statement of
their intent and a timetable for com ­
pliance with the 1980 deadline.

are handled uncommonly well.

The City of Maple Grove is located in north Hennepin County and is a suburb in the M inneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area.
Approximately 80% of the City’s taxable assessed value is comprised of residential property. Residential development has
been extensive in the last few years, with more than 1,000 single family homes built in the first ten months of 1979.
According to a recent demographic study, Maple Grove was one of the only three cities in Minnesota which saw its
population more than double since1970, and was one of only nine cities which added more than 5,000 residents over the
period. Maple Grove’s phenomenal residential growth has triggered a substantial amount of commercial construction,
primarily in the form of neighborhood shopping centers. Major employers in Maple Grove include three gravel mining
operations— Anderson Aggregate Co., Barton Contracting, Inc., and C.S. McCrossan, Inc. Other major employers in the
City include: Tennant Company; Spancrete Midwest; Barbarosa & Sons; REO Plastics; and Georgia Pacific Corporation.
These bonds are being issued pursant to Chapters 429 and 475 Minnesota Statutes. The proceeds will finance ten projects
remaining in the City’s 1979 Improvement Program, which consists of utility and street improvements. These bonds are
payable primarily from assessments levied against the benefited properties. In the opinion of counsel, these bonds are also
legal and binding general obligations of Maple Grove, Minnesota, and all taxable property located therein is subject to the
levy of sufficient taxes to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds without limit as to rate or amount, should the
assessments prove insufficient.
