February 18, 2021

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1177, as introduced, Santiago. Deposit: state funds: eligible bank.
Existing law requires the Treasurer, if possible, to deposit all money in the State Treasury or under the control of the Treasurer into an eligible bank. Existing law defines an “eligible bank” as, among other things, a state or national bank located in this state, selected by the Treasurer for the safekeeping of money belonging to, or in the custody of, the state, that has received an overall rating of not less than “satisfactory” in its most recent evaluation by the appropriate federal financial supervisory agency of the bank’s record of meeting the credit needs of the state’s communities.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the definition of an eligible bank.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 16500 of the Government Code is amended to read:

16500.
 As used in this chapter, “eligible bank” means a state or national bank located in this state, selected by the Treasurer for the safekeeping of money belonging to to, or in the custody of of, the state, that has received an overall rating of not less than “satisfactory” in its most recent evaluation by the appropriate federal financial supervisory agency of the bank’s record of meeting the credit needs of the state’s communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, pursuant to Section 2906 of Title 12 of the United States Code. An eligible bank is eligible to receive deposits only to the extent that it furnishes the security required by this chapter.
