13:17-24. Issuance and renewal of negotiable bond anticipation notes; payment; provisions, conditions and limitations
(a) In anticipation of the sale of such bonds the commission may issue negotiable bond anticipation notes and may renew the same from time to time, but the maximum maturity of any such note, including renewals thereof, shall not exceed 5 years from the date of the issuance of the original note. Such notes shall be paid from any revenues or other moneys of the commission available therefor and not otherwise pledged, or from the proceeds of the sale of the bonds of the commission in anticipation of which they were issued. The notes shall be issued in the same manner as the bonds. Such notes and the resolution or resolutions authorizing the same may contain any provisions, conditions, or limitations which a bond resolution of the commission may contain.

(b) Except as may otherwise be expressly provided by the commission, every issue of its bonds or notes shall be general obligations of the commission payable from any revenues or moneys of the commission, subject only to any agreements with the holders of particular bonds or notes pledging any particular revenues or moneys. Notwithstanding that bonds and notes may be payable from a special fund, they shall be fully negotiable within the meaning of the Uniform Commercial Code, subject only to the provisions of the bonds and notes for registration.

(c) The bonds may be issued in one or more series as serial bonds or as term bonds, or the commission, in its discretion, may issue bonds of both types. The bonds shall be authorized by resolution of the members of the commission and shall bear such date or dates, mature at such time or times, not exceeding 50 years from their respective dates, bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding 6% per annum, be payable at such time or times, be in such denomination or denominations, be in such form, either coupon or registered, carry such conversion or registration privileges, have such rank or priority, be executed in such manner, be payable from such sources in lawful money of the United States of America at such place or places, and be subject to such terms of redemption (with or without premium) as such resolution or resolutions may provide. The bonds or notes may be sold at public or private sale for such price or prices as the commission shall determine, but which shall not at the time of sale yield more than 6% per annum computed according to standard tables of bond values. Pending preparation of the definitive bonds, the commission may issue interim receipts of certificates which shall be exchanged for such definitive bonds.

(d) Neither the members of the commission nor any person executing the bonds or notes shall be liable personally on the bonds or notes or be subject to any personal liability or accountability by reason of the issuance thereof.

(e) The commission shall have the power out of any funds available therefor to purchase its bonds or notes. The commission may hold, pledge, cancel or resell such bonds, subject to and in accordance with agreements with bondholders.
