For the purpose of (1) financing the cost of any public facility or facilities (in this act sometimes referred to as the "project" ), or (2) funding or refunding any bonds, the authority shall authorize and provide for the issuance of bonds by a resolution (in this act sometimes referred to as the "bond resolution" ). Pursuant to the bond resolution, bonds may be issued in one or more series and shall bear such date or dates, mature at such time or times not exceeding 40 years from the date thereof, bear interest at such rate or rates, which may be fixed or may change, at such time or times and according to such formula or method of determination, 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 such medium of payment, at such place or places within or without the State, and be subject to such terms of redemption (with or without premium) as the bond resolution may provide. The authority may also authorize bonds to be issued and sold from time to time and delegate to such officer or agent of the authority as the authority shall designate the power to determine the time and manner (public or private) of sale, the maturities and rate or rates of interest (which may be fixed or may change, at such time or times and in accordance with a specified formula or method of determination), and such other terms and conditions as may be deemed appropriate by the officer or agent of the authority so designated; provided, however, that the amounts and maturities of and interest rate or rates on such bonds shall be within the limits prescribed by the authority in its delegation to the officer or agent of the power to authorize the sale and issuance of bonds. The authority may issue such types of bonds as it may determine, including (without limiting the generality of the foregoing) bonds on which the principal and interest are payable (a) exclusively from the income and revenues of the project financed with the proceeds of such bonds; (b) exclusively from the income and revenues of certain designated projects whether or not they are financed in whole or in part with the proceeds of such bonds; or (c) from its revenues generally. Any such bonds may be additionally secured by a pledge of any grant or contributions from any governmental unit or person or a pledge of any income or revenues of the authority from any source whatsoever, or by a mortgage or pledge of all or any part of the real or personal property of the authority, including property which is acquired, improved, constructed, financed or refinanced by the proceeds of such bonds.
