N.Y. State Finance Law Section 98-A
Investment of general funds, bond proceeds, and other funds not immediately required


1.

Except as otherwise provided in subdivision two of this section, any moneys in the general fund of the state or moneys received from the sale of any bonds or notes issued by the state, any moneys in any fund or account of the state, heretofore or hereafter established, the investment of which is not otherwise authorized and which are not immediately required may be invested by the comptroller. Such moneys may be invested only in obligations of the categories specified in subdivisions one to five, both inclusive, and subdivision seven, subdivision fourteen, as added by chapters seven hundred ninety-seven and nine hundred thirty-two of the laws of nineteen hundred sixty-three, respectively, subdivisions fifteen, sixteen and seventeen of § 98 (Investment of state funds)section ninety-eight of this article, maturing or redeemable at the option of the holder within twelve years of the date of such investment, subdivisions two-a, eighteen, nineteen and twenty of § 98 (Investment of state funds)section ninety-eight of this article or in a certificate of deposit of a bank or trust company in this state. Any certificate of deposit shall be fully secured by the issuer thereof depositing with the comptroller stocks, bonds, or notes of any county, town, city, village, fire district or school district of this state issued pursuant to law and maturing within five years from the date of issuance of such certificate of deposit, bonds or notes or direct or guaranteed obligation of the United States of America or its agencies or of the state of New York or bonds and notes issued for any of the corporate purposes of the municipal assistance corporation for the city of New York in an amount equal to the amount of such certificate of deposit. Any bonds, notes or certificates of deposit purchased with moneys of the general fund shall be available always to pay any lawful appropriation in force. Any bonds, notes or certificates of deposit purchased with moneys received from the sale of any bonds or notes issued by the state shall be available always for the purposes or purpose for which such bonds or notes were issued. Any bonds, notes or certificates of deposit purchased with moneys of any other funds shall be available always for the purpose for which such fund was created. Unless otherwise required by law, income received on any moneys invested pursuant to this section shall be credited to the fund or funds from which such moneys were invested, provided, however, the comptroller is hereby precluded from crediting interest earnings to funds/accounts which:

(a)

are funded entirely from the general fund; or

(b)

are, or were, authorized to receive temporary loans pursuant to subdivision five of State Finance Law § 4 (Payments, transfers and deposits)section four of the state finance law; or

(c)

are federal funds, except such funds which are required to earn such interest pursuant to a court order or federal law or regulation; or

(d)

are agency funds, except such funds which are held pending the outcome of litigation or are required to earn interest pursuant to a court order, contractual obligation, or state or federal law or regulation, or are appropriated. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (b) of this subdivision, the comptroller shall credit or charge interest to fund/accounts which are authorized to receive temporary loans if so requested by the state department or division responsible for such fund/account within thirty days of the beginning of each fiscal year or thirty days following the final approval of any bill containing language authorizing such temporary loans, whichever is later, and interest must be credited or charged from the first day of such fiscal year. Within ten days of the beginning of each month, the comptroller shall credit or charge interest to such funds/accounts based upon the average daily balance of the preceding month of such funds/accounts and shall provide notification to the director of the budget and the chairs of the senate finance and assembly ways and means committees of such funds/accounts to be credited or charged interest. Provided, however, that income received from the investment of moneys of the local assistance account, the state purposes account and the capital projects fund may be credited in whole or in part to one or more of such funds to the extent necessary to reimburse first instance appropriations for interest on temporary obligations issued on behalf of the fund or funds to be credited. Notwithstanding any other provision of this section or of any other general or special law, all moneys available and retained on deposit for the payment of lottery prizes may be invested in obligations by the comptroller as herein provided, except that such obligations need not mature or be redeemable at the option of the holder within seven years of the date of such investment. Income received from such investments may be used for the payment of prizes awarded and made payable in more than one payment, including prizes awarded and made payable throughout the lifetime of the lottery prize winner.

2.

Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, investment of bond proceeds and other funds not immediately required may be invested by the comptroller in linked deposits pursuant to article 15 (Excelsior Linked Deposit Act)article fifteen of this chapter. If any moneys are invested by the comptroller in linked deposits pursuant to article 15 (Excelsior Linked Deposit Act)article fifteen of this chapter, the comptroller shall compute the monthly earnings for all funds, other than the general fund, as if no such moneys had been invested in such linked deposits.
