The 1968 Legislature passed legisla- tion authorizing the State Fire Com- mission to promulgate rules and regulations to establish a statewide building code.

The State Fire Commission will be holding a meeting of their "Building Code Committee" on July 15, at I p.m. in the conference center of the State Capitol in Charleston to hear from various building cede representatives regarding the various aspects of the respective nationally recognized building codes. Public hearings have been schedul- ed to receive comments from the public regarding the adoption of a specific building code, including one in Martinsburg on August 8 at the Mar- tinsburg Public Library at 9 a.m. Copies of the proposed rules and regulations will be available after Ju- ly 18, 1988, from the State Fire Com- mission, Office of the State Fire Ad- ministrator, State Capitol Complex, Charleston, W.

Merger Set- 4 BALTIMORE--The Federal ],,and Bank of Baltimore and the Federal In- termediate Credit Bank of Baltimore, two major regional agricultural len- ding institutions, merged effective Ju- ly 6, to form the Farm Credit Bank of Baltimore. The merger of the Federal Land Bank (FLB) and Federal In- termediate Credit Bank (FICB) into the Farm Credit Bank of Baltimore is part of the implementation of the wide sweeping Agricultural Credit Act of 1987. The act, signed into law by Presi- dent Reagan in January of this year,. enables the separately chartered banks to merge their operations into more efficient operating units. "We have been operating, from the public's perspective, as a single bank,' the Farm Credit Banks of Baltimore, since 1977/"said Bank President Gene L. Swackhamer. "But, since both the FLB and FICB were separately chartered lending institutions, we had to maintain separate internal finan- cial, accounting, and reporting pro- cedures. It required an act of Congress to enable us to streamline our opera- tions into a more efficient unit." The most discernible effect on bank operations resulting from the merger will be, according to Swackhamer, the change in nomenclature and the abili- ty to consolidate financial statements from the previously separate institu- tions. The ownership of the bank re- mains with the Farm Credit Associa- tion shareholders.
