WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Banking Committee, issued the following statement today regarding the announcement by the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that five of the largest U.S. banks submitted inadequate “living wills” and have not demonstrated that they can fail without causing damage to the financial system. The Federal Reserve and the FDIC outlined steps the banks must take to address their deficiencies by October 1, 2016. “While I am still reviewing the firm-specific determinations announced today, this step is long overdue,” said Corker. “All financial services firms must be resolvable under the existing bankruptcy code without the help of the taxpayer. Until we achieve that outcome, I will continue to work with my colleagues to protect the safety and soundness of our financial system from failing firms.” “On the other hand, the fact that the
