SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Farm Credit Administration adopted a 
final rule to establish a regulatory framework for Farm Credit System 
(System) institutions' use of unincorporated business entities (UBEs) 
organized under State law for certain business activities. A UBE 
includes limited partnerships (LPs), limited liability partnerships 
(LLPs), limited liability limited partnerships (LLLPs), limited 
liability companies (LLCs), and any other unincorporated business 
entities, such as unincorporated business trusts, organized under State 
law. The final rule does not apply to UBEs that one or more System 
institutions may establish as Rural Business Investment Companies 
(RBICs) pursuant to the institutions' authority under the provisions of 
title VI of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as 
amended (FSRIA), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 
regulations implementing FSRIA. This rule does apply, however, to 
System institutions that organize UBEs for the express purpose of 
investing in RBICs. In accordance with 12 U.S.C. 2252, the effective 
date of the final rule is 30 days from the date of publication in the 
Federal Register during which either or both Houses of Congress are in 
session. Based on the records of the sessions of Congress, the 
effective date of the regulations is July 22, 2013.
