Legislation designed to provide the structural reform necessary to strengthen the thrift industry after the bailout of the insolvent Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation (FSLIC) in 1989. The Act is designed to accomplish the following through regulatory reform: to establish a stable system for affordable housing financing; to place the FSLIC insurance funds on a sound financial basis; to manage and resolve failed savings associations and, if necessary, to provide the funds required to deal expeditiously with failed savings associations; to improve the supervision of savings associations; and to strengthen the enforcement powers of federal regulators of savings associations. If the preceding aims are accomplished, the federal regulators will have the necessary power and capital to terminate insolvent savings associations in an effective and efficient manner before the crisis stage is reached.
