There shall be no discriminatory effect in the application of such laws between a branch of a bank chartered by the host State and in-State branches of out-of-State national banks. Such State laws shall be enforced, with respect to branches of national banks by the Comptroller of the Currency. All other laws of the host State shall apply as if the branch was a national bank situated in that State.

“(3) STATE ELECTION TO PERMIT INTERSTATE BRANCHING.—

‘*(A) DURING THE THREE—YEAR PERIOD FOLLOWING ENACTMEN'I‘.—The Comptroller of the Currency may approve an application under paragraph (1)(A) before the expiration of the 3-year period described in paragraph (1)(A), if the State in which the branch is or will be located enacts a law during that period expressly permitting interstate branching by all national and State banks before the expiration of the time period described in paragraph (1)(A).

“(B) AFTER THE THREE-YEAR PERIOD FOLLOWING ENACTMENT.—-A State that originally elected, pursuant to paragraph (2), to prohibit interstate branching may nonetheless elect at any later time to permit interstate branching if such State enacts a law expressly permitting interstate branching ,by all national and State banks.

“(4) STATE IMPOSED CONDITIONS ON INTERSTATE BRANCHING.—

“(A) A State may require a copy of an application submitted under this section to be filed with the host State banking authority in a timely manner (and the Comptroller of the Currency shall consider any timely comments of the host State prior to approving that application); and
