FDIC wants banks to prepay fees to meet failure bill

• Reuters
U.S. banking regulators proposed on Tuesday that banks prepay three years of fees to help cover the rising cost of bank failures, now put at $100 billion through 2013.

Banks would prepay $45 billion of regular quarterly assessments under the plan, but would not have to recognize the hit to their earnings until the fees are normally due.

The five-member board of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp voted unanimously to put the proposal out for 30 days of public comment.
