OTS FEES: Proposal by the OTS to reduce fees for healthy, traditional thrifts. Fees for some small thrifts, however, would increase because the agency wants to impose a base fee of $1,250 for all institutions. The plan also would force thrifts with large trust or other complex activities to pay more. Published Aug. 14. Comments were due Oct. 13.
INTERNET BANKING: Proposal by the OTS to require thrifts to notify federal regulators before offering Internet banking services. The requirement would be added to a proposal letting federal thrifts conduct any activity electronically that they conduct via paper. Published Aug. 13. Comments were due Sept. 14.
