The superintendent of savings banks, by rule adopted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, may increase this limitation to a maximum of thirty per cent of assets, provided that the reserve requirement for a savings bank with an investment exceeding ten per cent of assets shall increase in proportion to the amount of the investment. The rule shall include a schedule setting the reserve requirements for investments in amounts exceeding ten per cent of assets.
