(a) The authority may, as lessor or lessee, enter into leases and agreements with any participating party relating to the acquisition, construction, and installation of any project, including real property, buildings, machinery, furnishings, equipment, and alternative sources and advanced transportation technology facilities of any kind or character.
(b) The terms and conditions of those leases may be as mutually agreed upon. The lease may provide the means or methods by which title shall vest in a participating party upon the termination of the lease and shall contain any other terms and conditions as the authority may determine.
(c) The authority may fix, revise, charge, and collect rates, rents, fees, and charges for each project. Those 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:
(1) Pay the principal of and the interest on outstanding bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the authority issued with respect to the project as they shall become due and payable.
(2) Create and maintain reserves required or provided for in any resolution authorizing, or trust agreement securing, those bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness. A sufficient amount of the revenues derived from a project may be set aside at regular intervals as may be provided in that 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 those bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness as they shall 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. That pledge shall be valid and binding from the time the pledge is made; the rates, rents, fees, and charges and other revenues or other moneys so pledged and thereafter received by the authority shall immediately be subject to the lien of that pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and the lien of any such pledge shall be valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract, or otherwise against the authority, irrespective of whether the parties have notice thereof. Neither the resolution nor any trust agreement nor any other agreement nor any lease by which a pledge is created need be filed or recorded except in the records of the authority. The use and disposition of money to the credit of a sinking or other similar fund shall be subject to the provisions of the resolution authorizing the issuance of those bonds or of that trust agreement. The sinking or other similar fund may be a fund for all bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the authority issued to finance projects of a particular participating party without distinction or priority of one over another. However, the authority, in the 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 issued to finance a particular project or projects and may, additionally, permit and provide for the issuance of bonds having a subordinate lien in respect of the security herein authorized to other bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness of the authority, and, in that case, the authority may create separate sinking or other similar funds in respect of those subordinate lien bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness.
(3) Pay operating and administrative costs of the authority.
