(30 ILCS 395/4) (from Ch. 127, par. 310)
    Sec. 4. The State Treasurer may, with the approval of the Governor, invest and reinvest, at the existing market price and in any event not to exceed 102% of par plus accrued interest, any money in the Universities Building Fund in the State treasury which, in the opinion of the Governor communicated in writing to the State Treasurer, is not needed for current expenditures due or about to become due from such fund, in obligations of the United States Government maturing not more than one year after the date of purchase. The cost price of all such obligations shall be considered as cash in the custody of the State Treasurer and such obligations shall be conveyed at cost price as cash by the State Treasurer to his successor. The money in the Universities Building Fund in the form of such obligations shall be set up by the State Treasurer as a separate account of such fund and shown distinctly in every report issued by him regarding fund balances.
    All earnings accruing upon such investment shall be paid into the Universities Building Bond Retirement and Interest Fund in the State treasury, which separate fund in the State treasury is hereby created. All of the moneys received from the sale or redemption of such obligations of the United States Government shall be replaced in the Universities Building Fund.
