25 Pa. Code § 271.325. Collateral bonds—negotiable bonds.

§ 271.325. Collateral bonds—negotiable bonds.

 Negotiable bonds submitted and pledged as collateral for collateral bonds are subject to the following conditions:

   (1)  The Department may determine the current market value of governmental securities for the purpose of establishing the value of the securities for bond deposit.

   (2)  The current market value shall be at least equal to the amount of the required bond.

   (3)  The Department may periodically revalue the securities and will require additional amounts if the then current market value is insufficient to satisfy the bond amount requirements for the facility.

   (4)  The Department will not accept government securities unless they are rated at least ‘‘A’’ by Standard and Poor’s or ‘‘A’’ by Moody’s.

   (5)  The operator may request and receive the interest accruing on governmental securities held by the Department as the interest becomes due and payable. The operator is not entitled to interest accruing on the securities after forfeiture is declared by the Department, unless the forfeiture declaration is ruled invalid by a court having jurisdiction over the Department and the ruling is final. The Department has the authority to receive interest accruing after declaration of forfeiture and during any period of appeal and hold the interest pending final determination of the Department’s declaration of forfeiture.

   (6)  When negotiable bonds mature or are called, the State Treasurer, at the request of the permittee and upon Department approval, shall convert the negotiable bonds into other negotiable bonds of the classes specified in this subchapter, as designated by the permittee.


   The provisions of this §  271.325 adopted April 8, 1988, effective April 9, 1988, 18 Pa.B. 1681; amended September 13, 1991, effective September 14, 1991, 21 Pa.B. 4179. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (126146).
