§12-1-3. Depositories for interest earning deposits; qualifications.
Any state or national bank or any state or federal savings and loan association in this state shall, upon request made to the state treasurer, be designated as an eligible depository for interest earning deposits of state funds if such bank or state or federal savings and loan association meets the requirements set forth in this chapter. For purposes of this article, the term "interest earning deposits" includes certificates of deposit. The state treasurer shall make and apportion such interest earning deposits and shall prescribe the interest rates, terms and conditions of such deposits, all in accordance with the provisions of article six of this chapter: Provided, That state or federal savings and loan associations insured by an agency of the federal government shall be eligible for such deposits not in excess of one hundred thousand dollars: Provided, however, That notwithstanding any provision of this article to the contrary, no such interest earning deposits may be deposited in any depository which has been in existence over a period of five years which does not have a loan to deposit ratio of fifty percent or more and which does not have farm, single or multifamily residential unit loans in an amount greater than twenty-five percent of the amount of loans representing a loan-to-deposit ratio of fifty percent. For the purpose of making the foregoing calculation, the balances due the depository on the following loans shall be given effect: (1) Qualifying residential loans held by the depository; (2) qualifying loans made in participation with other financial institutions; (3) qualifying loans made in participation with agencies of the state, federal or local governments; and (4) qualifying loans originated and serviced by the depository but owned by an out-of-state investor. The computation of the criteria for eligibility specified above shall be based on the average daily balances of deposits, the average daily balances of total loans and qualifying residential loans for the period being reported.
