WASHINGTON - The recently completed Community Reinvestment Act rules will not require banks to record the race and gender of every small business and farm borrower.

However, as of Jan. 1, 1996, banks with more than $250 million of assets will have to record the number and amount of small business and farm loans originated, their location by census tract or block numbering area, and whether the business or farm had $1 million or less in revenue.
