By STEPHANIE FERGUSON N#wa Editor The final disposition of First Federal Savings and Loan Association FSA is on hold until the Resolution Trust Corporation receives more funding from the U.S. Congress, says an RTC spokesperson. “At the moment, we have not given out our list for the first quarter of 1991 of what we are going to be resolving,” said Theresa Macusac. “We’re kind of at a standstill until Congress gives us more funding." First Federal Savings and Loan was declared insolvent by the RTC May 25 because it was operating in an unsafe arid unsound condition and suffered losses that depleted all of its capital, said government officials of thc Office of Thrift Supervision. Macusac said the RTC is expected to receive funding from the federal government in January or February. “Then we’ll determine which ones we’ll be marketing and then selling.” The Resolution Trust Corporation was formed by the government to contain, manage arid resolve failed savings associations and recover funds through the management and ultimate sale of the institutions’ assets. “We’re going to be closing down 18 more thrifts nationwide in January, those are big thrifts," Macusac said. “After that we don’t have any more money to do the resolution activity. We w ill still be running and selling stuff and doing the other end of it." She said there are three ways an institution resolved. “One is a purchase and assumption agreement where they purchase all of the deposits ... and there’s an insurance deposit transfer where only the S#« RTC, Papa 2 Talks continue in 5-month-old gulf crisis By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Exactly five months after Iraq seized Kuwait and two weeks away from possible war, diplomatic efforts toward ending the crisis are afoot but embassy staffs in Baghdad are being trimmed down in case mediation fails.
