(a) General. The authority may from time to time issue its negotiable bonds in such principal amounts as, in the opinion of the authority, shall be necessary to provide sufficient funds for achieving the corporate purposes thereof, the payment of interest on bonds of the authority, establishment of reserves to secure such bonds and all other expenditures of the authority incident to, and necessary or convenient to, carrying out its corporate purposes and powers.
(b) Sources of Payment. Bonds issued by the authority shall be payable solely out of revenues or property of the authority specified in the resolutions authorizing the issuance of such bonds. To the extent permitted by any contracts with the holders of outstanding bonds and any other contractual obligations or requirements, the authority may pledge any, or all, of its revenues or mortgages or assign any, or all, of its assets (whether real or personal and whether tangible or intangible) to secure the payment of any of its bonds.
Revenues and property out of which bonds may be payable shall include, without limitation:
(1) Payments of principal, interest, premiums and penalties in respect to mortgage loans, loans to mortgage lenders, mortgages and mortgaged property;
(2) Proceeds referable to the foreclosure of mortgages or otherwise realized, by any and all means, upon any mortgaged property;
(3) Payments made in redemption of the equity of such mortgages or similar payments with respect to any redemption of mortgaged property;
(4) Proceeds from the leasing or sale of property which was formerly mortgaged property and which was acquired in the process of enforcing mortgage loans or loans to mortgage lenders;
(5) Proceeds from the sale of mortgage loans, loans to mortgage lenders, mortgages and mortgaged property;
(6) Insurance proceeds referable to mortgage loans, loans to mortgage lenders, mortgages and mortgaged property including, but without limitation, proceeds from casualty insurance and mortgage payment guarantee insurance;
(7) Proceeds from bond insurance;
(8) Grants or subsidies available in connection with any of the foregoing;
(9) Any of the foregoing sources of revenues as may be designated in the proceedings of the board pursuant to which the bonds shall be authorized to be issued.
(c) Pledge of Revenues and Other Security. The principal of and interest on any bonds issued by the authority may be secured by a pledge of the revenues out of which the same are payable and may be secured by a trust indenture evidencing such pledge or by a foreclosable mortgage and deed of trust conveying as security for such bonds all, or any part, of the property of the authority from which the revenues so pledged may be derived. The resolution under which the bonds are authorized to be issued or any such trust indenture or mortgage may contain any agreements and provisions respecting the maintenance and insurance of the property covered by such trust indenture or mortgage, the use of the revenues subject to such trust indenture or mortgage, the creation and maintenance of special funds from such revenues, the rights, duties and remedies of the parties to any such instrument and the parties for the benefit of whom such instrument is made and the rights and remedies available in the event of default as the authority shall deem advisable and which are not in conflict with the provisions of this chapter.
(d) Execution. All bonds issued by the authority shall be signed by the chairman or vice-chairman of its board of directors and attested by its secretary or assistant secretary and the seal of the authority shall be affixed thereto, and any interest coupons applicable to the bonds of the authority shall be signed by the chairman or vice-chairman of its board of directors; provided, however, that a facsimile of the signature of either the signing or the attesting officer, but not both, may be printed or otherwise reproduced on any such bonds in lieu of his manually signing the same, a facsimile of the seal of the authority may be printed or otherwise reproduced on any such bonds in lieu of being manually affixed thereto and a facsimile of the signature of the chairman or vice-chairman of the board of directors may be printed or otherwise reproduced on any such interest coupons in lieu of his manually signing the same.
(e) General Provisions Respecting Form; Interest Rate; Maturities; Sale and Negotiability of Bonds. Any such bonds may be executed and delivered by the authority at any time and, from time to time, shall be in such form and denomination or denominations and of such tenor and maturity or maturities, shall contain such provisions not inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter, and shall bear such rate or rates of interest, payable at such place or places, either within or without the state, and evidenced in such manner, as may be provided by resolution of the board of directors. Bonds of the authority may be sold at public sale, including without limitations the rejection of all bids, at such price or prices and at such times as determined by the board of directors to be advantageous. In addition, if bids are rejected or upon a finding by the Director of Finance of the state that a public sale of the authority's bonds is, under the circumstances, either impractical or undesirable, bonds may be sold at private sale in such manner and at such price or prices and at such time or times as may be determined by the board of directors to be most advantageous. The authority may pay all expenses, premiums and commissions in connection with any financing done by it. All bonds of the authority (including refunding bonds), except bonds registered as to principal or as to both principal and interest, and any interest coupons applicable thereto issued by the authority shall be construed to be negotiable instruments although payable solely from a specified source.
(f) No State Debt or Obligation. All obligations created and all bonds issued by the authority shall be solely and exclusively an obligation of the authority and shall not create an obligation or debt of the state.
