by Lee Davison


Part I of this study of the post-FIRREA legislative history of the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC) appeared in the previous issue of the Banking Review. It focused on the period immediately after the RTCs creation in August 1989 through 1990, examining congressional discussion and debate about the RTCs management, operations, and working capital funding. Part II, which focuses on the period 19911993, examines the passage of three statutes that affected the RTCs loss funding, management structure, and operations and completes the legislative history of the RTC.
