The State Treasurer shall, on the first Monday of February of the year A. D. 1921, and on the first Monday of August of each year thereafter, cause a notice to be sent to each regularly established National and State bank doing business in this State, indicating that on a date named therein not less than one month after the date of such notice, he will receive sealed proposals for the deposit of the public moneys in his custody or control. Such notice shall also be published at least once in one newspaper of general circulation, printed and published at the county seat of each county in the State, such publication to be made at least 15 days before the date named as the last date upon which proposals are to be received. A “regularly established” National or State bank is hereby defined to mean a bank which has been doing business in the State and has furnished at least two sworn statements of resources and liabilities to the Comptroller of the Currency, or to the Auditor of Public Accounts prior to the date upon which the proposals provided for herein are to be received. § 4. There shall be two classes of depositaries, active and inactive, and separate proposals shall be obtained for each class. In calling for proposals the State Treasurer shall indicate that separate quotations of rates of interest may be made upon such State moneys as shall be deposited in such bank and permitted to remain without diminution for thirty, sixty or ninety days, or for longer periods. § 5. Each proposal shall state whether for active or inactive deposits, the amount of deposits sought by such proposals, and the rate of interest such bank will pay on daily balances. Each proposal shall be enclosed in a sealed envelope bearing the name of the bank and labelled, “proposal for deposit of State moneys.” § 6.
