Subject: Treatment of secured liabilities, covered bonds- comments


     I'm writing to provide comments on the Interim Final Policy Statement on Covered Bonds. 
The following are my comments:

-- I'm concerned that this policy statement may cover Federal Home Loan Bank advances
which are a major source of funding and liquidity for our institution.  Capping these loans would 
hamper our ability to serve our customer base.  WE consider FHLB loan advances to be a 
significant source of liquidity and also a source of matched funding for a portion of our loan portfolio.

-- We have substantial difficulty in attracting longer term deposits and our borrowers want 
longer term rates.   FHLB advances are a key source of fixed rate funding that can match 
our loan pricing terms.

-- We would expect to have higher deposit costs if we were to have to raise more funding
from deposits, a challenging area for us to grow at the same pace we are able to grow loans.

    We ask that the FDIC does not penalize our institution by reducing our ability to use 
FHLB advances as a reliable and affordable source of funding.
