  2.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the state treasurer may permit bonds standing as security for moneys deposited by him in banking institutions under the provisions of chapter 30 to be deposited in book-entry collateral accounts maintained in a federal reserve bank or other clearing corporation as defined in section 400.8-102, or deposited with a banking institution in safekeeping for the state treasurer under procedures agreed upon by the governor, state auditor and state treasurer.  The governor, state auditor and state treasurer shall also agree upon procedures to verify that the bonds are actually recorded in a book-entry collateral account or actually held in safekeeping.

  3.  Securities, of the kind and type in which insurance companies are permitted to invest their funds, deposited in a clearing corporation or in book-entry accounts maintained in a federal reserve bank by an insurance company shall be eligible for deposit under any and all provisions of the insurance laws of this state relating to deposit of securities with the director of the department of commerce and insurance.  The director shall establish procedures to verify that the securities are actually recorded in a book-entry account or actually held in safekeeping by a clearing corporation.  Such procedures shall also provide that said securities on deposit with the department of commerce and insurance cannot be withdrawn by the insurance company without the approval of the director.
