Rule making related to legal lending limits

The Iowa Division of Banking hereby amends Chapter 9, "Investment and Lending Powers," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 524.213.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 524.904 as amended by 2022 Iowa Acts, Senate File 586, sections 85 through 88.

Purpose and Summary

This rule making updates language to reflect changes made to the statutory legal lending limit. The previous language referred to an extra borrowing privilege for loan or lease amounts secured by certain collateral, and this extra borrowing privilege was based on analogous privileges codified in Iowa Code section 524.904. These statutory provisions were amended by 2022 Iowa Acts, Senate File 586, to remove extra borrowing privileges for loan or lease amounts secured by the types of collateral identified in the current rule language. Therefore, the Division is amending paragraph 9.3(3)"a" to accurately reflect the current legal lending limits.

The following rule-making action is adopted:

Amend paragraph 9.3(3)"a" as follows:

a. If the obligations acquired carry full recourse endorsements, guaranty, or an agreement to repurchase of the lessor or servicer negotiating the sale of the leases, then the endorser, guarantor, or repurchaser shall also be deemed to be a customer of the bank. This customer's obligation would be limited to 35 15 percent of aggregate capital of the state bank if the amounts exceeding 15 percent of aggregate capital consist of obligations as endorser of negotiable chattel paper negotiated by endorsement with recourse, or as unconditional guarantor of nonnegotiable chattel paper, or as transferor of chattel paper endorsed without recourse subject to a repurchase agreement.
