1. The Enabling Amendment of June 25, 1930, provides that any National Bank Association

may, upon the deposit with it of public money of a State or any political subdivision thereof, give security for the safekeeping and prompt payment of the money on deposited, of the same kind as is authorized by the law of the State in which such association is located in the case of other banking institutions in the State.
