According to this legislation, "the federal land banks, it is expected, will stand ready at all times to lend money to farmers on farm-mortgage security.... Loans will be made for periods ranging from 5 to 40 years.... Local loan associations will improve the credit of their members and reduce the cost of loans through the performance of definite services. The bonds issued will be secured not only by farm mortgages deposited with the land bank registrar but also by the capital and surplus of the 12 federal land banks. Both mortgages and bonds will be exempt from all forms of taxation." -- p. 2
