Notwithstanding any provision in the Revised Code, if any bank or savings and loan association, the principal place of business of which is located in this state, possesses a right, power, privilege, or benefit by virtue of statute, rule, or judicial decision or will possess that right, power, privilege, or benefit by virtue of a rule or regulation issued but not effective, which right, power, privilege, or benefit is not possessed by a savings bank organized under the laws of this state, the superintendent of savings banks shall, by rule adopted in accordance with section 111.15 of the Revised Code, authorize savings banks organized under the laws of this state to exercise that right, power, privilege, or benefit.

If the rule adopted and promulgated by the superintendent is not enacted into law or adopted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code within thirty months from the date the rule is issued by the superintendent, the rule shall thereupon no longer be of any force or effect; however, the superintendent may adopt the rule under section 111.15 of the Revised Code pursuant to this section for an additional thirty-month period. The superintendent may upon thirty days' written notice revoke any rule issued by virtue of the authority of this section.
