AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE MONEYS DEPOSITED IN CERTAIN DECOMMISSIONING FUNDS ESTABLISHED BY NORTH CAROLINA MUNICIPAL POWER AGENCY NUMBER 1 TO BE INVESTED THROUGH THE STATE TREASURER'S ANCILLARY GOVERNMENTAL PARTICIPANT INVESTMENT PROGRAM.
Amends GS 147-69.2 to authorize the State Treasurer to make investments to the credit of the Catawba Unit No. 1 Decommissioning Trust Fund and the Catawba Unit No. 2 Decommissioning Trust Fund, as identified (Trust Funds). Authorizes the State Treasurer to invest the funds deposited in the Trust Funds as general obligations, obligations of other states, obligations of cities, obligations of domestic and foreign companies meeting specified rating requirements, and asset-backed securities meeting specified rating requirements, as described in subdivisions (b)(1) through (6) of the statute.
Additionally authorizes the State Treasurer to invest funds deposited in the Trust Funds pursuant to subdivision (b)(6c), which allows domestic and foreign investment in obligations, debt securities, and asset-backed securities that do not meet the requirements of subdivisions (b)(1) through (6); excludes these investments from the 7.5% cap placed on the market value of all invested assets of Retirement Systems under the subdivision. Additionally authorizes the State Treasurer to invest funds deposited in the Trust Funds pursuant to subdivision (b)(8), in a strategy composed primarily of equity securities traded on a public securities exchange or market organized and regulated pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction of the exchange or market and issued by any company incorporated or otherwise created or located within or outside the United States as long as the investments meet the two specified conditions of the subdivision; however, excludes these investments from the 65% cap placed on the market value of all invested assets of Retirement Systems under the subdivision. Authorizes the State Treasurer to require a minimum deposit of up to $100,000 and assess reasonable fees of up to 15 basis points per annum to defray administration costs as a condition of making an investment pursuant to subdivisions (b)(6c) and (b)(8).
Amends GS 159B-18 to authorize the investment of funds deposited in the Trust Funds as provided in GS 147-69.2(b6), as enacted. Further describes the Trust Funds.
