The committee heard testimony from William Seidman, chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, on the financially strapped FDIC. The FDIC, which provides insurance against losses of bank depositors when savings institutions fail, had little money remaining in its coffers to cover future bank failures; the fund has been predicted to run out in the next one or two years. The Bush Administration gave a legislative proposal to Congress earlier in that week which gave the FDIC the authority to borrow $25 billion from the Federal Reserve to cover future bank losses, with an added measure allowing extra money to be borrowed by the FDIC. In his testimony, Chairman Seidman said the added measure in the Bush Administration’s legislation would actually allow the FDIC to borrow up to $70 million from the Federal Reserve. close
