WASHINGTON -- The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is expected to vote today on legislation that would increase the size of loans that do not require an appraisal of the real estate that secures them.

The new rules, which are intended to make it easier for financial institutions to make loans, would move the threshold on loans requiring appraisals from $100,000 to $250,000.
