Dear Mr. Feldman,
FDIC’s proposed rule on increasing insurance assessments for banks utilizing
FHLB advances in excess of 15% of domestic deposits would be detrimental to
small, community banks that rely on advances for liability side liquidity.
This is not the time to further increase assessments in light of expected
increases related to the TLGP.
