California Government Code

Sec. § 99011


The authority, at any time or from time to time, upon the request of the Director of Finance, may issue bonds for the purposes set forth in subdivision (b) of Section 99005. Each issue of bonds may be in an amount sufficient to provide for the funding of all or a portion of the accumulated budget deficit, for funding any necessary reserves and capitalized interest, for obtaining or entering into any ancillary obligations deemed necessary or desirable by the authority, for paying costs of issuance of the bonds as approved by the Director of Finance, or for refunding any bonds previously issued by the authority.


Bonds issued pursuant to this title, and any ancillary obligations entered into with respect to those bonds, are not a debt or liability of the state or of any political subdivision thereof or a pledge of the full faith and credit of the state or of any political subdivision thereof, and shall be payable by the authority solely from available revenues. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Legislature is not obligated to appropriate special sales tax revenues or any other funds or otherwise make any other funds available to pay debt service on the bonds or to pay ancillary obligations issued or entered into pursuant to this title. All bonds shall contain on the face thereof a statement to the effect that the bonds are a special obligation of the authority payable solely from available revenues, including moneys deposited in the Fiscal Recovery Fund, if and to the extent appropriated in each fiscal year for that purpose by the Legislature; that the Legislature is not obligated to make such an appropriation or to provide any other funds for the repayment of the bonds; that neither the state nor any political subdivision thereof, except the authority to the extent provided in this subdivision, is obligated to pay the bonds or the interest thereon; that neither the full faith and credit nor the taxing power of the state or any political subdivision thereof is pledged to the payment of the principal of or interest on the bonds; and that the authority has no taxing power.


(1)On request of the Director of Finance, the authority may issue bond anticipation notes, payable within a period not to exceed two years, from the proceeds of the sale of bonds or from available revenues, or both, as provided in the indenture pertaining to the bond anticipation notes.


Notwithstanding paragraph (1), if bonds that are not bond anticipation notes have not been issued at the maturity date of an issue of bond anticipation notes, the authority may renew those notes from time-to-time, provided the final maturity date of any such renewal notes shall not be later than six years from the date of initial issuance of a series of bond anticipation notes. The authority may not renew any bond anticipation notes after issuance of bonds in an amount sufficient to refund those notes.
