Reserves.

(a) A bank which is not a member of the Federal Reserve System shall maintain at all times a reserve fund in an amount fixed by resolution of the Banking Board.

All such fees shall be paid into the special fund set up by the State Treasurer pursuant to Section 5-2A-20.

(c) A bank which is a member of the Federal Reserve System shall maintain at all times a reserve fund in accordance with the requirements applicable to a member bank under the laws of the United States.
