13 CFR Part 120

RIN 3245-AF49

Business Loan Program; Lender Examination and Review Fees

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

ACTION: Proposed rule, notice of reopening of comment period and 


SUMMARY: On September 5, 2006, SBA published in the Federal Register a 
proposed rule on Business Loan Program; Lender Examination and Review 
Fees (71 FR 52296). This proposed rule implements a recent amendment to 
the Small Business Act authorizing SBA to assess fees to lenders 
participating in SBA's 7(a) loan guarantee program to cover the costs 
of examinations, reviews, and other Lender Oversight activities. The 
original comment period was from September 5, 2006, through October 5, 
2006. SBA is reopening the comment period until November 9, 2006. Given 
the significant level of interest the proposed rule has generated, SBA 
believes the affected parties would find it beneficial to have more 
time to review the proposal and prepare their comments.
    In addition SBA is correcting the Addresses section of the proposed 
rule by eliminating the Agency Web Site address and amending the E-mail 
address to [email protected].

DATES: Comments on the proposed rule on Business Loan Program, Lender 
Examination and Review Fees, 71 FR 52296, must be received on or before 
November 9, 2006.
