A loan made pursuant to Section 42023.1 shall be subject to all of the following requirements:


The terms of an approved loan shall be specified in a loan agreement between the borrower and the department. The loan agreement shall include a requirement that the failure to comply with the agreement shall result in any remaining unpaid amount of the loan, with accrued interest, being immediately due and payable. Notwithstanding any term of the agreement, a recipient of a loan that the department approves shall repay the principal amount, plus interest on the basis of the rate of return for money in the Surplus Money Investment Fund at the time of the loan commitment. All money received as repayment and interest on loans made pursuant to this section shall be deposited in the subaccount.


The term of a loan made pursuant to this section shall be not more than 10 years when collateralized by assets other than real estate, or not more than 15 years when partially or wholly collateralized by real estate.


The department shall approve only those loan applications that demonstrate the applicant’s ability to repay the loan. The highest priority for funding shall be given to projects that demonstrate that the project will increase market demand for recycling the project’s type of postconsumer waste material. (4)The department shall not finance more than three-fourths of the cost of a project or two million dollars ($2,000,000), whichever is less.


The Department of Finance may audit the expenditure of the proceeds of a loan made pursuant to Section 42023.1 and this section.


(1)Except as provided in paragraph (2), this section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2021, and as of January 1, 2022, is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, which becomes effective on or before January 1, 2022, deletes or extends the dates on which it becomes inoperative and is repealed.


The repeal of this section pursuant to paragraph (1) shall not extinguish any loan obligation or the authority of the state to pursue appropriate actions for the collection of a loan.
