California Government Code

Sec. § 63065


The obligation of the bank and of the state to pay any guarantee benefit pursuant to contracts of guarantee or any other contracts or obligations of the bank, a special purpose trust, or sponsor shall be a limited obligation of the bank payable solely from amounts deposited in the guarantee trust fund that are made available therefor under the respective contracts of guarantee. The guarantee of loans or bonds under this division shall not directly or indirectly or contingently obligate the state or any political subdivision thereof to levy or to pledge any form of taxation whatever therefor, or to make any appropriation for their payment.


All contracts of guarantee or any other contracts or obligations of the bank, special purpose trust, or a sponsor pursuant to this division shall contain on the face thereof a statement to the following effect: “Neither the faith and credit nor the taxing power of the State of California is pledged to the payment of the principal of or interest on this contract of guarantee.”


Moneys in the guarantee trust fund may not be transferred to any other fund except for payment on any guarantee or enhancements or except as necessary to pay the expenses of operating the program of bond guarantee and enhancement authorized by this division, nor shall the bank utilize any moneys under the direction and control of the agency, including, but not limited to, moneys in the California Housing Loan Insurance Fund and the California Housing Finance Fund, other than moneys in the guarantee trust fund, to satisfy liabilities arising from contracts of guarantee authorized by this division.
