California Government Code

Sec. § 99065


(a)

Subject to subdivision (b), bonds in the total amount of fifteen billion dollars ($15,000,000,000), not including the amount of any refunding bonds issued in accordance with Section 99075, or so much thereof as is necessary, may be issued and sold to provide a fund to be used for carrying out the purposes expressed in this title and to reimburse the General Obligation Bond Expense Revolving Fund, pursuant to Section 16724.5. The bonds, when sold, shall be and constitute a valid and binding obligation of the State of California, and the full faith and credit of the State of California is hereby pledged for the punctual payment of both principal of, and interest on, the bonds as the principal and interest become due and payable. Additionally, the bonds, when sold, shall be secured by a pledge of revenues and any other amounts in the Fiscal Recovery Fund created pursuant to Section 99008. The bonds may be secured by different lien priorities on amounts in the Fiscal Recovery Fund.

(b)

The amount of bonds that may be issued and sold pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be reduced by the amount of bonds issued pursuant to Title 17 (commencing with Section 99000), and by the amount of bonds issued pursuant to the California Pension Obligation Financing Act (Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 16910) of Part 3 of Division 4 of Title 2), except to the extent those bonds will be retired, defeased, or redeemed with the proceeds of bonds authorized by this title.

(c)

Pursuant to this section, the Treasurer shall sell the bonds authorized by the committee. The bonds shall be sold upon the terms and conditions specified in a resolution to be adopted by the committee pursuant to Section 16731 and Section 99070. Whenever the committee deems it necessary for an effective sale of the bonds, the committee may authorize the Treasurer to sell any issue of bonds at less than their par value. Notwithstanding Section 16754.3, the discount with respect to any issue of the bonds shall not exceed 3 percent of the par value thereof, net of any premium.
