WASHINGTON - The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is thinking of easing restrictions on personal property leasing by national banks.

In a proposed regulation published in today's Federal Register, the agency asks for comment on whether it should let banks rely more on the residual value of leased property - and less on the creditworthiness of the lessor - in deciding whether to enter into a lease. Also up for comment is the amount of time banks have to dispose of property after the lease on it expires.
