A new on-line service for fair-lending help has been started by Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson, a Washington law firm.

"Fair Lending Alert" is designed to keep bankers up-to-date on fair- lending and community reinvestment issues.

The service includes new developments in policy issued by the banking agencies, the Justice Department, the Housing and Urban Development Department, Congress, and community groups.

The first alert is an analysis of the Federal Reserve Board's Dec. 29 proposed commentary to Reg B, implemented by the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.

Users also can direct questions and comments on fair lending to Fried Frank.

For more information, call Bob Ledig at 202-639-7016.
