Filed: 09/05/2012 09:14:16 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 7-1-301(8)(b)(i) authorizes the Commissioner to establish eligible classes and types of investments for the deposits and funds for financial institutions if the restrictions or requirements are not more stringent than those applicable under federal law or regulation to federally-chartered institutions of the same class.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No supporting or opposing written comments have been received by the agency concerning this rule.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule permits a state-chartered bank to purchase for its own account shares of open-end investment companies subject to certain restrictions. The rule expands eligible classes and types of investments for state-chartered banks and gives them rights, privileges, and powers granted to national banks, and should be continued.
