(16) (a) Mortgage securities that are individual loans that include negotiable promissory notes and the first lien deeds of trust securing payment of such notes on one to four family real estate, on commercial real estate, or on farm real estate located in Missouri or states adjacent to Missouri, provided such loans:

a. Are underwritten to conform to standards established by the state treasurer, which are substantially similar to standards established by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, Iowa, and any of its successors in interest that provide funding for financial institutions in Missouri;

b. Are offered by a financial institution in which a senior executive officer certifies under penalty of perjury that such loans are compliant with the requirements of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, Iowa, when such loans are pledged by such bank;

c. Are offered by a financial institution that is well capitalized; and

d. Are not construction loans, are not more than ninety days delinquent, have not been classified as substandard, doubtful, or subject to loss, are one hundred percent owned by the financial institution, are otherwise unencumbered and are not being temporarily warehoused in the financial institution for sale to a third party.

This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2005, shall be invalid and void;

(c) A status report on all such mortgage securities shall be provided to the state treasurer on a calendar monthly basis in the manner and format prescribed by the state treasurer by the financial institutions pledging such mortgage securities and also shall certify their compliance with subsection 2 for such mortgage securities;

(d) In the alternative to paragraph (a) of this subdivision, a financial institution may provide a blanket lien on all loans secured by one to four family real estate, all loans secured by commercial real estate, all loans secured by farm real estate, or any combination of these categories, provided the financial institution secures such blanket liens with real estate located in Missouri and states adjacent to Missouri and otherwise complies with paragraphs (b) and (c) of this subdivision;

(e) The provisions of paragraphs (a) to (d) of this subdivision are not authorized for any Missouri political subdivision, notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 110 to the contrary;

(f) As used in this subdivision, the term "unencumbered" shall mean mortgage securities pledged for state funds as provided in subsection 1 of this section, and not subject to any other express claims by any third parties, including but not limited to a blanket lien on the bank assets by the Federal Home Loan Bank, a depositary arrangement when securities are loaned and repurchased daily or otherwise, or the depositary has pledged its stock and assets for a loan to purchase another depositary or otherwise; and

(g) As used in this subdivision, the term "well capitalized" shall mean a banking institution that according to its most recent report of condition and income or thrift financial report, publicly available as applicable, qualifies as well capitalized under the uniform capital requirements established by the federal banking regulators or as determined by state banking regulators under substantially similar requirements;

(17) Any investment that the state treasurer may invest in as provided in article IV, section 15 of the Missouri Constitution, and subject to the state treasurer's written investment policy in section 30.260, that is not otherwise provided for in this section, provided the banking institution or eligible lending institution as defined in subdivision (10) of section 30.750 is well capitalized, as defined in subdivision (16) of this subsection. The provisions of this subdivision are not authorized for political subdivisions, notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 110 to the contrary.

2. Securities deposited shall be in an amount valued at market equal at least to one hundred percent of the aggregate amount on time deposit as well as on demand deposit with the particular financial institution less the amount, if any, which is insured either by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or by the National Credit Unions Share Insurance Fund. Furthermore, for a well-capitalized banking institution, securities authorized in this section that are:

(3) United States Treasury securities and United States Federal Agency debentures issued by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Federal Home Loan Bank, or the Federal Farm Credit Bank valued at market and deposited as collateral shall not exceed one hundred five percent of the aggregate amount of time deposits and demand deposits. All other securities, except as noted elsewhere in this section, valued at market and deposited as collateral shall not exceed one hundred fifteen percent of the aggregated amount of the time deposits and demand deposits; and

(4) Securities that are surety bonds and letters of credit authorized as collateral need only collateralize one hundred percent of the aggregate amount of time deposits and demand deposits.

3. The securities or book entry receipts shall be delivered to the state treasurer and receipted for by the state treasurer and retained by the treasurer or by financial institutions that the governor, state auditor and treasurer agree upon. The state treasurer shall from time to time inspect the securities and book entry receipts and see that they are actually held by the state treasury or by the financial institutions selected as the state depositaries. The governor and the state auditor may inspect or request an accounting of the securities or book entry receipts, and if in any case, or at any time, the securities are not satisfactory security for deposits made as provided by law, they may require additional security to be given that is satisfactory to them.

4. Any securities deposited pursuant to this section may from time to time be withdrawn and other securities described in the list provided for in subsection 1 of this section may be substituted in lieu of the withdrawn securities with the consent of the treasurer; but a sufficient amount of securities to secure the deposits shall always be held by the treasury or in the selected depositaries.

5. If a financial institution of deposit fails to pay a deposit, or any part thereof, pursuant to the terms of its contract with the state treasurer, the state treasurer shall forthwith convert the securities into money and disburse the same according to law.

6. Any financial institution making deposits of bonds with the state treasurer pursuant to the provisions of this chapter may cause the bonds to be endorsed or stamped as it deems proper, so as to show that they are deposited as collateral and are not transferable except upon the conditions of this chapter or upon the release by the state treasurer.
