(15 ILCS 520/1.2)
    Sec. 1.2. (a) The General Assembly finds that it is in the best interests of the people of the State of Illinois to use monies in the custody of the State Treasurer available for deposit to promote and facilitate the issuance and sale of Affordable Housing Program Trust Fund Bonds or Notes as defined in and issued pursuant to the Illinois Housing Development Act for housing for persons with low and very low income in this State. The State Treasurer may, in consultation with the Director of the Illinois Housing Development Authority, set aside any portion of State funds or monies at his disposal for deposit, and deposit such funds or monies to further the issuance and sale of Affordable Housing Program Trust Fund Bonds or Notes issued pursuant to the Illinois Housing Development Act.
    (b) Illinois Affordable Housing Program Trust Fund Bonds and Notes shall be eligible collateral for all deposits of State moneys, and any bank or savings and loan association otherwise eligible to receive deposits of State moneys, is entitled to participate in bidding for deposits of State moneys on the basis of collateralizing such deposits with such bonds and notes. In administering deposits of State monies secured by Affordable Housing Program Trust Fund Bonds or Notes, the State Treasurer may use a collateral pool as authorized in this Act to secure those deposits.
    (c) Any institution to be eligible for the benefits of this Section must still meet requirements of capital and financial condition established by this Act and the requirements of the Public Funds Investment Act. This Section shall not apply to any deposit of State moneys if the deposit secures obligations of the State to third parties and the terms of such obligations are inconsistent with the provisions of this Section.
