(1949 Rev., S. 831; 1955, S. 369d; 1959, P.A. 152, S. 15; 1967, P.A. 517, S. 13; P.A. 73-609, S. 2, 4; P.A. 75-256, S. 2, 5; P.A. 83-331, S. 1; P.A. 95-282, S. 2, 11; P.A. 96-244, S. 38, 63.)

History: 1959 act deleted provisions for administration of funds by counties; 1967 act raised amount of deposit allowed in single bank to 75% of bank’s resources; P.A. 73-609 redefined “bank” to remove phrase “and is organized under ... the banking laws of the United States or of this state”; P.A. 75-256 added general loss reserve to listing of bank assets in Subsec. (b); P.A. 83-331 amended Subsec. (a) to include share accounts, term share accounts and share certificate accounts in the definition of “deposit” or “deposits”; P.A. 95-282 repealed previous provisions and revised definitions, effective July 6, 1995, provided “any designation of a depository of public funds of the state or any municipality or regional school district, and any prescription of the method of supervision of the investment and reinvestment of trust funds of a municipality, made in accordance with the applicable provisions of sections 4-33, 7-401, 7-402, 7-403, subsection (c) of section 10-52 or subsection (d) of section 10-56 in effect on or before July 6, 1995, shall remain in effect until rescinded or otherwise modified in accordance with the provisions of public act 95-282” (Revisor’s note: The reference to “section 10-52” appears to be a clerical error since Subsec. (c) of Sec. 10-51 was amended by Sec. 5 of P.A. 95-282); P.A. 96-244 revised effective date section of P.A. 95-282 but without affecting this section.
