Comment regarding whether secured liabilities should be factored into assessments:

I am concerned and perplexed that the definition of secured liabilities might include FHLB advances.

FHLB advances provide a means to manage liquidity risk and meet the credit needs of our communities.

A higher assessment charge based on usage of FHLB advances runs counter to a sound, profitable financial institution capable of meeting the housing and development needs of its communities especially during volatile periods in the housing and liquidity markets.
