Federal Register Document Type: Reproposed
Revise existing standards of conduct regulations in Subpart A, Part 612, and consider a more principle-based rule to facilitate a sound standards of conduct program at System institutions.

Text of Comment Letter
Dear Mr. Mardock:

I am sending this in regards to FCA's proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) to the standards of conduct relating to transactions between board members.

There should not be undue regulations on board members to operate their farm business in a normal and legal fashion.  We have to be farmers and borrowers of an FCA association to be on the board.  We have already taken a pledge to act ethically in our duty of being a board member.

Also, the SOC official should act as an educator of policies and not be a micro-manager.
Thank you.

Kenneth Gasper
High Plains Farm Credit Board Member
