Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Swaps Regulatory Improvement Act October 30, 2013
Jeb Hensarling, R-TX
"No taxpayer funds shall be used to prevent the receivership of any swap entity resulting from swap or security-based swap activity of the swaps entity."
Conflict Between Iran And Israel March 5, 2012
Steve King, R-IA
"Then, if you go on down the line of the planks and the platforms that are universal among the Presidential candidates, you would see the desire to repeal Dodd-Frank there universally among Republicans. Dodd-Frank, that’s set up such that the government would decide which lending institutions were too big to be allowed to fail. Then, once declared too big to fail, the three entities in the Federal Government would decide whether they were going bankrupt, and if they went into receivership, who and what entity would receive them."
Impact Of Insured Depository Institution Failures December 19, 2011
Bill Posey, R-FL
"Among other things, the FDIC must determine whether financial institutions are being placed into receivership or conservatorship due to significant losses arising from loans for which all payments were made on time and the contractual terms of the loans have been met. With Congressman Westmoreland, I believe that a performing loan is exactly that—one that is performing according to the terms of the contract. A regulator should not be able to step in and interject an opinion on why the loan may not perform at some point in the future, and thus penalize a community bank."
Re-Introduction Of The Equitable Treatment Of Investors Act February 18, 2011
Scott Garrett, R-NJ
"In this legislation, there are important exceptions to those two general customer protections that deny that beneficial treatment to any customer who knew of or was complicit in the fraudulent activity of the debtor and to any customer who, as a registered professional in the securities markets, with the requisite knowledge of these matters, knew or should have known of the debtor’s fraudulent activities and failed to notify appropriate regulatory authorities. This portion of the bill’s language is meant to assure that SIPC and the receivership Trustee have fully adequate legal powers to act against customers undeserving of SIPA’s investor protections."
Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Act July 26, 2010
Scott Brown, R-MA
"In title II of the bill, the orderly liquidation authority includes provisions that allow the FDIC to unwind firms that threaten stability. While I repeatedly supported amendments that would have relied more heavily on the bankruptcy code rather than this approach, I also believe that if used appropriately, resolution authorities can be an important and useful tool in unwinding financial institutions that threaten market stability. I will be watching closely as these provisions are implemented by the FDIC. Under this section, the FDIC has the power to “take any action” to provide disparate treatment to similarly situated creditors if the FDIC “determines that such action is necessary to maximize the value of assets of the covered financial company; to initiate and continue operations essential to the receivership of the financial company; to maximize the present value return from the sale or other disposition of the assets of the covered financial company; or to minimize the amount of any loss realized upon the sale or other disposition of the assets of the covered financial company.”"
