California Government Code

Sec. § 92304


The commission may fix, revise, charge, and collect rates, rents, fees, and charges for each project.
The rates, rents, fees, and charges shall be fixed and adjusted with respect to the aggregate of rates, rents, fees, and charges from all projects so as to provide funds sufficient with other revenues and moneys available therefor, if any, to do all of the following:

(a)

Pay the principal of, and the interest on, outstanding bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the commission financing project that shall become due and payable.

(b)

Create and maintain reserves required or provided for in any resolution authorizing, or trust agreement securing, the bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness. A sufficient amount of the revenues derived from a project may be set aside at such regular intervals as may be provided in the resolution or trust agreement in a sinking or other similar fund which is hereby pledged to, and charged with, the payment of the principal of, and interest on, the bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness as they become due, and the redemption price or the purchase price of bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness retired by call or purchase as therein provided. The pledge shall be valid and binding from the time when the pledge is made; the rates, rents, fees, and charges and other revenues or other moneys so pledged and thereafter received by the commission shall immediately be subject to the lien of the pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and the lien of any pledge shall be valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract, or otherwise against the commission, regardless of whether the parties have notice thereof. No resolution, trust agreement or other agreement, or lease by which a pledge is created need be filed or recorded except in the records of the commission. The use and disposition of money to the credit of sinking or other similar fund shall be subject to the resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds or of the trust agreement. Except as may be otherwise provided in the resolution or the trust agreement, the sinking or other similar fund may be a fund for all bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the commission financing projects of a particular participating party without distinction or priority of one over another. However, the commission, in any resolution or trust agreement, may provide that the sinking or other similar fund shall be the fund for a particular project or projects and for the bonds financing a particular project or projects and may, additionally, permit and provide for the issuance of bonds having a subordinate lien with respect to the security authorized for other bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the commission, and, in such case, the commission may create separate sinking or other similar funds for the subordinate lien bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness.

(c)

Pay operating and administrative costs of the commission.
