SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Federal

cash deposited to secure immigration
bonds shall be ‘‘at a rate determined by
the Secretary of the Treasury, except
that in no case shall the interest rate
exceed 3 per centum per annum.’’ 8
U.S.C. 1363(a). Related Federal
regulations state that ‘‘Interest on cash
deposited to secure immigration bonds
will be at the rate as determined by the
Secretary of the Treasury, but in no case
will exceed 3 per centum per annum or
be less than zero.’’ 8 CFR 293.2.
Treasury has determined that interest on
the bonds will vary quarterly and will
accrue during each calendar quarter at
a rate equal to the lesser of the average
of the bond equivalent rates on 91-day
Treasury bills auctioned during the
preceding calendar quarter, or 3 per
centum per annum, but in no case less
than zero. [80 FR 45018]. In addition to
this Notice, Treasury posts the current
quarterly rate in Table 2b—Interest
Rates for Specific Legislation on the
TreasuryDirect website.
