(A) One hundred fifty million dollars ($150,000,000);  or

(B) An amount equal to ten (10) times the amount on deposit at that time in the Bond Guaranty Reserve Account;

(3) The borrower involved is not permitted to purchase or own at any time any of such bonds;

(4) The borrower is found to be financially responsible and that sufficient income may reasonably be expected to amortize in an orderly manner amortization payments of the qualified bonds;  and
