To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in General
              Court assembled:

PETITION OF:

Robert P. Spellane

13th Worcester

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MEMORANDUM

OF THE SECRETARY OF THE COMMONWEALTH

IN RESPECT TO THE PETITION OF ROBERT P. SPELLANE

RELATIVE TO THE

INVESTMENT POWERS OF THE

MASSACHUSETTS CREDIT UNION SHARE INSURANCE CORPORATION

 

February 3, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

To:               The Honorable Senate and

                   House of Representatives

 

              On February 1, 2010 the Clerk of the House transmitted the above-referenced petition to me with a request for a memorandum pursuant to the provisions of

General Laws Chapter 3 § 7.

 

              The Massachusetts Credit Union Share Insurance Corporation (hereinafter referred to as the “Corporation”) was organized by Chapter 294 of the Acts of 1961 for the purpose of creating and maintaining a fund for the issuance of shares and deposits of members of credit unions established under the laws of the Commonwealth.  Since its inception, numerous special acts have been adopted amending the provisions of law relative to the Corporation.

 

              The bill before you seeks to amend Section 1 (12) of Chapter 294 of the Acts of 1961, as most recently amended by Section 7 of Chapter 168 of the Acts of 2004, by allowing the Corporation to invest in certificates of deposit in a banking corporation, insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, in an amount not to exceed the applicable federal deposit insurance limit.

 

              Special legislation is necessary to accomplish the amendments.  No fee is required by a corporation of this type.  This office has no opinion on the merits of the legislation.

 

                                                                      Respectfully submitted,

 

 

 

                                                                      William Francis Galvin

                                                                      Secretary of the Commonwealth
