WASHINGTON — Federal banking regulators are scheduled to publish in the Federal Register today an interagency proposal that would require banks to hold $1 of capital for each $1 of residual interest in pools of high-risk securitized loans.

Under the proposal, which the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. board approved Aug. 15, banks would not be permitted to use residual interests — the interest an institution retains after securitizing and selling assets — to satisfy more than 25% of their regulatory capital requirements. The proposal will be out for comments for 90 days.
