This excerpt taken from the PNC DEF 14A filed Mar 19, 2009.
Effective December 31, 2008, PNC participated in the U.S. Department of the Treasurys Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). PNC received an investment of approximately $7.6 billion from the Treasury under the TARP Capital Purchase Program. As a recipient of TARP funds, PNC will fully comply with all applicable limitations under the compensation and related rules under the Capital Purchase Program and those to be adopted by the Treasury pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). As the Treasury has not, as of March 10, 2009, released interpretive regulations pursuant to ARRA, the impact of any future regulations or rulemaking on PNCs programs, principles, plans and philosophies described in this section is unknown.
