Texas Water Code § 58.397 Pledge Of Commercial Income

Sec. 58.397. PLEDGE OF COMMERCIAL INCOME. (a) The term "commercial income" means income other than revenue derived from taxation.

(b) If required to do so, a district may pledge its existing and expected commercial income to secure a loan to the extent the pledge will not obviously substantively impair the ability of the district to pay obligations which are held by others.

(c) If a district expects commercial income in the future but does not have the demonstrated income in an amount adequate to discharge the loan when it matures, the district may pledge the expected commercial income as provided in Subsection (b) of this section and in addition, or as an alternative, may pledge with a power of sale its unsold bonds in a par amount which shall not be more than the amount of the loan plus 10 percent. The district is not required to impound the bonds. The rate of interest on the loan may not be more than six percent.

(d) After commercial income is pledged, it may not be used for any purpose except to pay the debt which it secures, and it shall be applied to the reduction of the secured debt as rapidly as practicable.
