[[Page 1290]]

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. [FR Doc. 2015-18545] In
