(1) In addition to any other authority to issue refunding bonds, a public body may issue current refunding bonds to refund its outstanding bonds pursuant to this section.
(2) A public body may secure current refunding bonds with any of the revenues and covenants that the public body could have used to secure the refunded bonds and with revenues and covenants authorized by law when the refunding bonds are issued.
(3) A public body may issue:
(a) General obligation bonds to refund outstanding general obligation bonds without obtaining approval of the electors of the public body.
(b) Revenue bonds to refund revenue bonds that were issued in accordance with ORS 287A.150 without complying with the procedures prescribed in ORS 287A.150.
(c) General obligation bonds as current refunding bonds with a maturity date not more than 30 days after the maturity date of the elector-approved general obligation bonds to be refunded or the latest maturity date permitted in the elector-approved measure authorizing the refunded bonds, whichever is later. If the total debt service on the current refunding general obligation bonds does not exceed the total debt service on the general obligation bonds to be refunded, the amounts maturing on a given date may be changed, and the current refunding general obligation bonds may mature earlier than the bonds to be refunded.

(a) Pay the refunded bonds or pay a termination payment with respect to an agreement for exchange of interest rates related to the refunded bonds;
(b) Fund reserves for the current refunding bonds;
(c) Pay costs of issuing the current refunding bonds and obtaining credit enhancement devices; and
