California Government Code
In the discretion of the bank, a special purpose trust, or the sponsor, as the case may be, any bonds issued under this chapter may be secured by a trust agreement between the bank, a special purpose trust, or the sponsor and a corporate trustee or trustees, that may include the Treasurer or any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company within or without the state.
(a) The trust agreement or the resolution providing for the issuance of the bonds may pledge or assign any funds or assets of the bank or special purpose trust legally available for pledge or assignment, all or a portion of the revenues to be received by the bank, directly or indirectly, with respect to the project, or the proceeds of any contract or contracts, loan or loan agreements, bond or bond purchase agreements, and may convey or mortgage the project or projects, or any portion thereof, to be financed out of the proceeds of the bonds. The trust agreement or resolution providing for the issuance of the bonds may contain provisions for protecting and enforcing the rights and remedies of bondholders as may be reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including provisions specifically authorized to be included in any resolution or resolutions of the bank or a sponsor authorizing bonds.
(b) Any bank or trust company doing business under the laws of the state that may act as a depository of the proceeds of bonds or of revenues or other moneys shall furnish indemnifying bonds or pledge securities when required by the bank, a special purpose trust, or a sponsor.
(c) The trust agreement 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, any trust agreement or resolution may contain other provisions that the bank may deem reasonable and proper for the security of the bondholders.
(d) The trust agreement may provide for the pledge or assignment of funds or moneys in the custody of the Controller that are legally available to a sponsor and that are due or payable to the sponsor by reason of any grant, allocation, apportionment, or appropriation of the state or agencies thereof, and any legally available funds or moneys that are or will be due or payable, to any sponsor, the bank, the state or the agencies thereof by reason of any grant, allocation, apportionment, or appropriation of the federal government or agencies thereof.
