New Jersey Revised Statutes § 13:17-25 - Trust Agreement To Secure Bonds; Pledge Or Assignment Of Revenues; Provisions; Lien Of Pledge

13:17-25. Trust agreement to secure bonds; pledge or assignment of revenues; provisions; lien of pledge
(a) In the discretion of the commission, any bonds issued under the provisions of this act may be secured by a trust agreement by and between the commission and a corporate trustee or trustees which may be any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company within or without the State. Such trust agreement, or the resolution providing for the issuance of such bonds, may pledge or assign the revenues or other moneys to be received or the proceeds of any contract or contracts pledged. Such trust agreement or resolution providing for the issuance of such bonds may contain such provisions for protecting and enforcing the rights and remedies of the bondholders as may be reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including covenants setting forth the duties of the commission in relation to the acquisition of property, and the construction, improvement, maintenance, repair, operation and insurance of the project or projects, the amount of assessments or other charges to be levied upon holders of lands affected by the project or projects, the payment, security or redemption of bonds, and the custody, safeguarding and application of all moneys. Any bank or trust company incorporated under the laws of this State which may act as depositary of the proceeds of bonds or of revenues or other moneys may furnish such indemnifying bonds or pledge such securities as may be required by the commission. Any such trust agreement or resolution may set forth the rights and remedies of the bondholders and of the trustee, or trustees, and may restrict the individual right of action by bondholders. In addition to the foregoing, any such trust agreement or resolution may contain such other provisions as the commission may deem reasonable and proper for the security of the bondholders. All expenses incurred in carrying out the provisions of such trust agreement or resolution may be treated as a part of the cost of construction or of a reclamation project or projects.

(b) Any pledge or assignment made pursuant to this section shall be valid and binding from the time when the pledge or assignment is made; the revenues or moneys so pledged or assigned and thereafter received by the commission shall immediately be subject to the lien of such pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and the lien of any such pledge shall be valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract or otherwise against the commission, irrespective of whether such parties have notice thereof. Neither the resolution nor any trust agreement by which a pledge or assignment is created need be filed or recorded except in the records of the commission.
