The rate, effective from Jan. 1, 2010, through March 31, is computed using the treasury constant maturity rate for one-year treasury bills (.35 percent) published on Dec. 17, 2009, plus 3.5 percent as required by state statute.

The rate currently in effect – from Oct. 1, 2009, through Dec. 31, 2009 – is 3.88 percent.
