        order), for any purpose, to a demand deposit account of the 
        owner in the same institution. Nothing in this subsection shall

                institution. Nothing in this subsection shall be 
                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 
                Reserve Act) for purposes of the Federal Reserve

        savings association may permit the owner of any deposit or

        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
