18A:64-18.5. Bank deposits made by State colleges, security
1. In all cases when a deposit is made by a State college in a State or federally chartered bank, savings bank or savings and loan association, the State Treasurer, in order to secure the deposit, shall require from the bank or institution a deposit of bonds, notes, certificates of indebtedness or bills or other obligations of or guaranteed by the United States; or bonds or other obligations of or guaranteed by the State of New Jersey; or bonds or other obligations of any county, municipality or any other public body corporate and politic created by or established under any law of this State by or on behalf of any one or more counties or municipalities or any board, commission, department or agency of any of the foregoing; or any other obligations now or hereafter authorized by law as security for public deposits. This requirement shall be deemed to be met if the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia or any other banking institution with total assets in excess of $300,000,000 located within the Second or Third Federal Reserve Districts and approved for such purpose by the State Treasurer, certifies to the State Treasurer that, pursuant to authority given by the depository, it holds obligations, owned by the depository, of the kind and in the amount required by the State Treasurer to secure such deposit. No bank shall be permitted to hold securities, of the kind hereinbefore described, as security for public moneys on deposit in the same bank.
No State or federally chartered bank, savings bank or savings and loan association in which a State college makes deposits of public moneys shall be required to secure the deposits as required by this section to the extent that the deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other federal agency which insures deposits made in state or national banks or savings and loan associations.
