GPO FDSys XML | Text type regulations.gov FR Doc. 2012-13779 RIN Department of the Treasury Circular, Public Debt Series No. 3-72 DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY, Fiscal Service Final rule. This final rule is effective June 7, 2012. 31 CFR Part 344 The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is issuing this final rule to revise the regulations governing State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities. SLGS securities are non-marketable Treasury securities that are only available for purchase by issuers of tax-exempt securities. Current financial market conditions have resulted in extraordinarily low yields in the secondary market for some marketable Treasury securities. As a result, rates applicable to non-marketable State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities sold to issuers of tax-exempt securities could be negative. To prevent this, Treasury is instituting a floor on the daily SLGS rate, by amending the definition of “SLGS rate” and the definition of the “annualized effective Demand Deposit rate” for Demand Deposit SLGS securities. Additionally, Treasury is revising the definition of “Y” in the annualized effective Demand Deposit rate calculation formula to clarify the calculation method to be used during a year that contains a leap day.
