(j)  Time deposit accounts and savings accounts of state or federal savings and loan associations located within the geographical boundaries of the state in amounts not to exceed the insurance provided by the federal deposit insurance corporation including, but not limited to, accounts on which interest or dividends are paid and upon which negotiable orders of withdrawal may be drawn, and similar transaction accounts.
(k)  Revenue bonds of institutions of higher education of the state of Idaho.
(l)  Share, savings and deposit accounts of state and federal credit unions located within the geographical boundaries of the state in amounts not to exceed the insurance provided by the national credit union share insurance fund and/or any other authorized deposit guaranty corporation, including, but not limited to, accounts on which interest or dividends are paid and upon which negotiable orders of withdrawal may be drawn, and similar transaction accounts.
(m)  Money market funds whose portfolios consist of any allowed investment as specified in this section. The securities held in money market portfolios must be dollar-denominated, meaning that all principal and interest payments on such a security are payable to security holders in United States dollars.
The term "idle moneys" means the balance of cash and other evidences of indebtedness which are accepted by banks as cash in the ordinary course of business, in demand deposit accounts, after taking into consideration all deposits and withdrawals, on a daily basis.
The interest received on all such investments, unless otherwise specifically required by law, shall be paid into the general account of the state of Idaho. Provided, unless otherwise specifically provided by statute, any interest earned on funds received by the state pursuant to a federal law, regulation, or federal-state agreement which governs disposition of interest earned upon such funds shall be accounted for separately to give effect to the federal law, regulation, or federal-state agreement.
If the interest is to be credited to a separate account, the state treasurer shall charge the account an investment administration fee. The amount of the fee shall be determined annually by the state treasurer and submitted to the board of examiners for approval as stipulated in section 67-3524, Idaho Code. The fee shall be expressed as an annual percentage of the average daily balance of the account, including separate investments, if any, of that account. The fee shall be charged monthly in an amount approximately one-twelfth (1/12) of the fee which would be payable on an annual basis. The amount of the investment administration fee shall constitute an appropriation from the account for which the investment administration services are rendered.
The state treasurer shall charge an investment administration fee to each such state fund or account, including the general account, which receives investment income from investments administered by the office of state treasurer. The investment administration fee shall be determined annually by the state treasurer and submitted to the board of examiners for approval, as stipulated in section 67-3524, Idaho Code. The fee shall be expressed as an annual percentage of the average daily balance of the fund or account, including separate investments, if any, of that fund or account. The fee shall be charged monthly in an amount approximately one-twelfth (1/12) of the fee which would be payable on an annual basis. The amount of the investment administration fee shall constitute an appropriation from the fund or account for which the investment administration services are rendered.
The term "to invest" means to use the idle moneys in the state treasury to buy, sell, including selling before maturity at either a gain or a loss, retain, or exchange any of the investments described in this section, considering the probable safety of the capital, the probable income to be derived, and the liquidity of the assets.
