(1) Notwithstanding ORS 295.046 (Limitation on depository acceptance of public funds from single public official), a depository may not permit the aggregate of uninsured public funds deposits on deposit with the depository from all public officials to exceed at any time the lesser of:

(a) 100 percent of the value of the depository’s net worth, if the depository is an undercapitalized depository;

(b) 150 percent of the value of the depository’s net worth, if the depository is an adequately capitalized depository;

(c) 200 percent of the value of the depository’s net worth, if the depository is a well capitalized depository;

(d) For a bank depository, 30 percent of the total aggregate uninsured public funds deposits of all public officials in all bank depositories as reported in the most recent notice the bank depository received from the State Treasurer; or

(e) For a credit union depository, 30 percent of the total aggregate uninsured public funds deposits of all public officials in all credit union depositories as reported in the most recent notice the credit union depository received from the State Treasurer.

(2) The State Treasurer shall notify each bank depository or credit union depository and the depository’s custodian of the total aggregate uninsured public funds deposits of all public officials in all bank depositories or credit union depositories, as appropriate, based on the most recently submitted treasurer reports. The State Treasurer shall give the notification required by this subsection by the last day of the month in which the depositories are required to submit a treasurer report.

(3) If a depository’s aggregate of uninsured public funds deposits exceeds the amount set forth in subsection (1) of this section, the depository shall, within three business days after receiving notice from the State Treasurer, cease accepting deposits of uninsured public funds.

(4) Notwithstanding subsections (1) and (3) of this section:

(a) A depository may accept and hold uninsured public funds deposits in excess of the limits specified in subsection (1) of this section if the State Treasurer, upon good cause shown, approves the depository’s request to hold uninsured public funds in excess of the limits specified in subsection (1) of this section for a period not exceeding 90 days and eligible securities are deposited with the depository’s custodian as collateral in an amount at least equal to the amount of the uninsured public funds deposits that exceeds the limits specified in subsection (1) of this section. Upon the expiration of the 90-day period, if the depository does not comply with the limits specified in subsection (1) of this section, the depository shall, within three business days after receiving notice from the State Treasurer, cease accepting deposits of public funds.

(b) The limits specified in subsection (1) of this section do not apply to public funds deposits a depository holds in a certificate of deposit or time deposit under ORS 295.004 (Conditions for deposit of funds in excess of specified amounts) (1) or public funds that an Oregon depository arranges to deposit into an insured deposit account under ORS 295.004 (Conditions for deposit of funds in excess of specified amounts) (2).

(c) A well capitalized depository or an adequately capitalized depository may accept and hold uninsured public funds deposits that exceed the limit specified in subsection (1)(d) or (e) of this section if eligible securities are deposited with the depository’s custodian as collateral in an amount at least equal to the amount of the uninsured public funds deposits that exceed the limit specified in subsection (1)(d) or (e) of this section.

(5) If the State Treasurer notifies a depository that it must cease accepting deposits of public funds under subsection (3) or (4) of this section, the State Treasurer may also notify public officials who have deposited public funds in the depository that within 15 business days after the public official receives the notice from the State Treasurer, the public official must withdraw from the depository to which the notice applies all public funds deposits that exceed the limit specified in subsection (1)(d) or (e) of this section. A public official who is notified by the State Treasurer under this subsection must begin to withdraw funds as specified in the notice. Except as required by any applicable law or regulation, a depository may not impose an early withdrawal penalty or a forfeiture of interest with respect to a withdrawal made pursuant to this subsection.
