Q: What will the RTC's total volume of mortgage-backed securities be when the agency finally closes its doors for good?

A: It depends on when Congress gives us the funding to continue. The current funding delay has obviously restricted the flow of new thrifts into the RTC. It also depends on how many more thrifts ultimately end up with the RTC. We've been going along at a clip of approximately $1.5 billion to $2 billion per month. There may be some decline. But I still see us doing well over $1 billion a month in securities for the foreseeable future.
