Section 280.053, Florida Statutes 2001
280.053 Period of suspension or disqualification; obligations during period; reinstatement.--
(1)(a) The Treasurer may suspend a qualified public depository for any period that is fixed in the order of suspension, not exceeding 6 months. For the purposes of this section and ss. 280.051 and 280.052, the effective date of suspension or disqualification is that date which is set out as such in any order of suspension or disqualification.
(b) During the period of suspension, the contingent liability, required collateral, and reporting requirements of the suspended public depository remain in force under the same conditions as if the suspended depository had remained qualified.
(c) Upon expiration of the suspension period, the bank or savings association may, by order of the Treasurer, be reinstated as a qualified public depository, unless the cause of the suspension has not been corrected or the bank or savings association is otherwise not in compliance with this chapter or any rule adopted pursuant to this chapter.
(2)(a) A qualified public depository may be disqualified for a period of time not less than 1 year to be fixed in the order of disqualification.
(b) During the period of disqualification, the contingent liability, required collateral, and reporting requirements of the disqualified public depository remain in force under the same conditions as if the disqualified depository had remained qualified.
(c) Upon expiration of the disqualification period, the bank or savings association may reapply for qualification as a qualified public depository. If a disqualified bank or savings association is purchased or otherwise acquired by new owners, it may reapply to the Treasurer to be a qualified public depository prior to the expiration date of the disqualification period. Redesignation as a qualified public depository may occur only after the Treasurer has determined that all requirements for holding public deposits under the law have been met.
