California Government Code
(a) The California Transportation Financing Authority Fund is hereby created and continued in existence in the State Treasury, to be administered by the authority. Notwithstanding Section 13340 of the Government Code, all moneys in the funds shall be continuously appropriated without regard to fiscal year for the purposes of this division. The authority may pledge any or all of the moneys in the fund as security for payment of the principal of, and interest on, any particular bonds issued by the authority, or any particular secured or unsecured loan made pursuant to subdivision (g) or (h) of Section 64107, and, for that purpose or as necessary or convenient to the accomplishment of any other purpose of the authority, may divide the fund
into separate accounts. All moneys accruing to the authority pursuant to this part from whatever source shall be deposited in the fund.
(b) Subject to the priorities that may be created by the pledge of particular moneys in the fund to secure any bonds issued by the authority, and subject further to the costs of loans provided by the authority pursuant to subdivisions (g) and (h) of Section 64107, and subject further to any reasonable costs that may be incurred by the authority in administering the program authorized by this division, all moneys in the fund derived from any source shall be held in trust for the security and payment of bonds issued by the authority and shall not be used or pledged for any other purpose so long as the bonds are outstanding and unpaid. However, nothing in this section shall limit the power of the
authority to make loans with the proceeds of bonds in accordance with the terms of the resolution authorizing the same.
(c) Pursuant to any agreements with the holders of particular bonds pledging any particular assets, revenues, or moneys, the authority may create separate accounts in the fund to manage assets, revenues, or moneys in the manner set forth in the agreements.
(d) The authority may, from time to time, direct the Treasurer to invest moneys in the fund that are not required for its current needs, including proceeds from the sale of any bonds, in the eligible securities specified in Section 16430 as the agency shall designate. The authority may direct the Treasurer to deposit moneys in interest-bearing accounts in state or national banks or other financial institutions
having principal offices in this state. The authority may alternatively require the transfer of moneys in the fund to the Surplus Money Investment Fund for investment pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 16470) of Chapter 3 of Part 2 of Division 4 of Title 2. All interest or other increment resulting from an investment or deposit shall be deposited in the fund, notwithstanding Section 16305.7. Moneys in the fund shall not be subject to transfer to any other fund pursuant to any provision of Part 2 (commencing with Section 16300) of Division 4 of Title 2, excepting the Surplus Money Investment Fund.
