On November 9th, the FDIC voted to propose for comment two proposed rules that would amend the deposit insurance assessment regulations. The first would implement a provision in the Dodd-Frank Act that changes the assessment base from one based on domestic deposits to one based on assets. The second proposal would re-propose changes for the deposit insurance assessment system for large institutions given Dodd-Frank's changes to the assessment base. This proposal replaces a proposed rule approved by the Board in April 2010. Comments on either proposed rule should be submitted within 45 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is expected during the week of November 15. FDIC Press Release.
