BANKS AND BANKING
ORGANIZATION AND CORPORATION POWERS OF BANKS
26-215. Federal reserve — Membership. Any bank shall have the power to subscribe to the capital stock and become a member of a federal reserve bank.
Any bank incorporated under the laws of this state which is or which becomes a member of a federal reserve bank is, by the bank act, vested with all powers conferred upon member banks of the federal reserve banks by the terms of the Federal Reserve Act as fully and completely as if such powers were specifically enumerated and described herein. All such powers shall be exercised subject to all restrictions and limitations imposed by the Federal Reserve Act, or by regulations of the Federal Reserve Board, made pursuant thereto. The right of the legislature to revoke or to amend the powers herein converted is, however, expressly reserved.
Compliance on the part of any such bank with the reserve requirements of the Federal Reserve Act shall be held to be in full compliance with those provisions of the laws of this state which require banks to maintain cash balances in their vaults or with other banks, and no such bank shall be required to carry or maintain reserve other than such as is required under the terms of the Federal Reserve Act. Any such bank shall continue to be subject to the supervision and examinations required by the laws of this state, except that the Federal Reserve Board shall have the right, if it deems necessary, to make examinations; and the authorities of this state having supervision over such bank may disclose to the Federal Reserve Board or to examiners duly appointed by it, all information in reference to the affairs of any bank which has become or desires to become a member of a federal reserve bank.
