        order), for any purpose, to a demand deposit account of the

                construed to prevent an account offered pursuant to 
                this subsection from being considered a transaction 
                account (as defined in section 19(b) of the Federal

        this subsection, an insured nonmember bank or insured State 
        savings association may permit the owner of any deposit or 
        share, any account which is a deposit or share, or any account 
        on which interest or dividends are paid to make up to 24

        Governors of the Federal Reserve System may determine by rule 
        or order under section 19(i) to be permissible for member 
        banks), for any purpose, to a demand deposit account of the 
        owner in the same institution. Nothing in this subsection shall
