I understand the premise and need to adequately capitalize the insurance
fund, however the premiums are too burdensome to community banks.  Even
as a strong bank that had no contributory element to this crisis, the
proposal would at least double our premium for next year. 

How are we expected to make up such a large detriment to our operating
budget?  It only serves to reduce our capital and ability to serve our
local community.

Please reconsider the magnitude of this "catch-up" adjustment.  It is
very counterproductive in the current economic environment.
