FACTBOX-Fed proposes U.S. bank stress test expansion

 CHARLOTTE, N.C./WASHINGTON, June 10 (Reuters) - More than a dozen U.S. banks would be added to the Federal Reserve’s annual capital stress tests, under a proposal announced on Friday by the central bank and industry regulator.
 Under the proposal, all U.S. banks with more than $50 billion in U.S. assets would be subject to an annual review of their capital position and ability to weather economic shocks and losses. [ID:N10212004]

 The expanded list, based on Fed data through March 31, would include several prominent U.S. regional banks that were excluded from the first rounds of testing, along with domestic subsidiaries of foreign banks:
