SB371REPLACEMENT OF THE LONDON INTERBANK OFFERED RATE. (ZAY A) Adds provisions to the title in the Indiana Code concerning financial institutions to provide for the replacement, by operation of law, of the United States Dollar LIBOR as the benchmark index for any contract, security, or instrument, with a recommended benchmark replacement that is based on the secured overnight financing rate (SOFR). Sets forth certain events that serve to trigger the replacement of LIBOR with the recommended benchmark replacement. Specifies that such replacement by operation of law applies with respect to a contract, security, or instrument that either: (1) contains no fallback provisions setting forth a methodology or procedure for determining a benchmark replacement; or (2) contains fallback provisions that result in a benchmark replacement that: (A) is not a recommended benchmark replacement; and (B) is based in any way on any LIBOR value. Provides that if a recommended benchmark replacement becomes the benchmark replacement for any contract, security, or instrument, any applicable benchmark replacement conforming changes become an integral part of the contract, security, or instrument by operation of law. Provides that the bill's provisions do not alter or impair contracts, securities, or instruments that contain certain provisions. Provides that the selection or use of a recommended benchmark replacement as a benchmark replacement for a contract, security, or instrument: (1) constitutes a commercially reasonable replacement for and a commercially substantial equivalent to LIBOR; and (2) does not: (A) impair or affect certain rights and performance obligations under; (B) constitute a breach of; or (C) void or nullify; the contract, security, or instrument. Provides that a person is not liable for damages, and is not subject to any claim for equitable relief, in connection with: (1) the selection or use of a recommended benchmark replacement; or (2) the determination, implementation, or performance of benchmark replacement conforming changes; with respect to any contract, security, or instrument. Makes a cross reference to this immunity provision in the chapter of the Indiana Code that lists statutes outside of Title 34 of the Indiana Code that confer civil immunity.

SB383FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND CONSUMER CREDIT. (BASSLER E) Provides that a reference to federal law in: (1) the first lien mortgage lending act; (2) the Uniform Consumer Credit Code (UCCC); or (3) the Indiana Code title governing financial institutions; is a reference to the law as in effect December 31, 2021 (versus December 31, 2020, under current law). Amends the provisions in the UCCC governing authorized finance charges for consumer loans (other than supervised loans) and for supervised loans to specify that: (1) the entire section governing finance charges for consumer loans (other than supervised loans) does not apply to supervised loans; and (2) the loan finance charge for a supervised loan must be: (A) contracted for between the lender and the debtor; and (B) calculated by applying a rate not exceeding the authorized rate to unpaid balances of the principal. Amends provisions in the UCCC concerning permitted additional charges for guaranteed asset protection (GAP) agreements for: (1) consumer credit sales; and (2) consumer loans; to specify that the average retail value for a used motor vehicle that is the subject of a GAP agreement is to be determined by using a third party valuation service provider customarily relied upon in the used motor vehicle commercial market (versus by using the National Automobile Dealers Association average retail value, under current law). Amends the Indiana Code section concerning the department's duties of confidentiality with respect to certain information concerning financial institutions to specify that those duties apply to all regulated entities licensed or registered with the department. Specifies that the required fidelity coverage for credit unions: (1) applies to those directors, officers, and employees of the credit union who have access to money or bonds of the credit union; and (2) must be approved annually by the credit union's board of directors as to the amount and form. Amends the statute governing money transmitters to: (1) provide that a "payment instrument" does not include a "stored value account"; and (2) remove the definition of "stored value account". Changes references to a "federal savings and loan association" to a "federal savings association" for purposes of the statute concerning mergers, consolidations, and conversions involving federal savings associations and savings associations chartered in Indiana, to specify that a federal savings association may convert into a savings association chartered in Indiana.
