STATE OF MAINE
DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL AND FINANCIAL REGULATION
BUREAU OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
TO INTERESTED PARTIES
In January 2002, the Bureau of Financial Institutions promulgated Chapter 141 (Regulation 41). That rule set forth the assessment which must be paid by nondepository trust companies, uninsured banks and merchant banks. That rule also defined fiduciary assets under management, custody or care upon which the assessment is based. Public Law 2003, c.322 amended the statute governing assessments paid by nondepository trust companies, uninsured banks, and merchant banks to the Bureau of Financial Institutions and changed the frequency of assessment payment from annually to quarterly. Public Law 2003, c.322 did not change the minimum assessment rate or the type of assets upon which an assessment is based, nor did it provide for a statutory transition for payment of assessments from the annual to quarterly frequency. This regulation was last promulgated in 2004 to provide for the transition from annual to quarterly assessments paid to the Bureau of Financial Institutions by nondepository trust companies, uninsured banks, and merchant banks. The rule’s anticipated effective date is January 1, 2009. It is amended to delete dated assessments that had been, or will be, paid by nondepository trust companies, uninsured banks, and merchant banks until December 31, 2008, and to establish the quarterly assessments paid by nondepository trust companies, uninsured banks, and merchant banks beginning with the assessment for the calendar quarter ending March 31, 2009. It is a routine technical rule as defined in Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter 2‑A.
Notice of this proposed Rule is being published by the Secretary of State. Interested parties may submit written comments or requests for a hearing to the Bureau of Financial Institutions, 36 State House Station, Augusta, Maine 04333-0036 by October 17, 2008. Electronic comments or requests for a hearing may be submitted by accessing the Internet Home Page of the Bureau of Financial Institutions at http://www.maine.gov/financialinstitutions.
A copy of the proposed rule is attached.
