- Friday, September 26, 2014

12. FDIC Proposal Hits Banks With Unexpected Bill
- Monday, October 05, 2009
Bank executives were given notice a few days ago they’d have to write a big, unexpected check to the federal government at the end of this year.
The reactions from bankers and industry analysts in the Memphis market to that proposal – and to the spike in fees banks have paid since the start of the financial crisis – show little variation.
