Chapter 30

< > Effective - 28 Aug 1957    bottom

  30.290.  Liability of treasurer and depositaries. — 1.  The state treasurer shall not be responsible for any moneys or bonds deposited in a bank, banks or banking institutions or safe depositary under the provisions of this chapter while the same remain there deposited with the consent of the governor and state auditor, but the state treasurer shall be chargeable with the safekeeping, management and disbursement of the bonds deposited with him as security for deposits of state moneys, and with the proceeds arising from any sale thereof under the provisions of this chapter, and his sureties on his official bond shall be held liable for any default in the faithful performance of any duty required of said treasurer under or by virtue of any of the provisions of this chapter.

  2.  Neither the state treasurer nor the sureties on his official bond shall be liable for any loss to any fund of the state occasioned by the sale of any obligation of the United States government acquired by the state treasurer pursuant to law at a price which does not restore to the fund the cost of such obligation where such sale was made by the state treasurer in the good faith exercise of the power of sale reposing in him by law.  Good faith compliance by the state treasurer with subsection 2 of section 30.260 shall be a full justification for the action of the state treasurer in the investment of state moneys although different action by the state treasurer would have yielded a greater return on the state moneys.

  3.  Depositaries of state moneys shall not be liable for any default in the faithful performance of any duty imposed upon the state treasurer by law in regard to any withdrawal of moneys from any bank account, demand or time, maintained by him.
