Approved Revenue Bonds for Pledging to Public Funds

Pursuant to K.S.A. 9-1402 deposits of public moneys of Kansas municipal and quasi-municipal corporations must be secured according to one of the statutorily prescribed methods. One prescribed method is the pledging of securities, security entitlements, financial assets, or securities accounts owned by the bank in which the deposits are made.

In addition, the State Bank Commissioner for the State of Kansas has authority to approve for pledging, certain revenue bonds meeting particular criteria.

Bond status of “ACTIVE” means the bond has been approved by the Commissioner for pledging to the security of public funds. A bond status of “INACTIVE” means the bond is not approved or the bond has matured. If the bond has matured that information should be displayed in the “Status Reason” category.

If your search does not return any results, the particular bond has not been submitted to the Commissioner for approval and thus would not be acceptable for pledging to public funds.
