The revenues, rents, and earnings derived from any particular project or combined projects;  all sums allocated or paid by the State Board of Education or Department of Education to the authority for the benefit of and on behalf of any county, city, or independent school district or system or its governing body for the performance of any lease contract or agreement of sale or any and all funds from any sources received by the various county boards of education, city boards of education, or governing bodies of independent school districts or systems that have entered into lease contracts or agreements of sale with the authority and paid to it in the performance of such contract or contracts;  any and all revenues, rents, and earnings received by the authority, regardless of whether or not such rents, earnings, and revenues were produced by a particular project for which bonds have been issued, unless otherwise pledged and allocated;  and federal funds where applicable may be pledged and allocated by the authority to the payment of the principal and interest, if any, on revenue bonds of the authority as the resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds or the trust instrument may provide.  Such funds so pledged from whatever source received may include funds received from one or more or all sources and shall be set aside at regular intervals as may be provided in the resolution or trust indenture, into a sinking fund, which shall be pledged by the authority to and charged with the payment of:

(1) The interest, if any, upon such revenue bonds as such interest shall fall due;

(2) The principal of the bonds as the same shall fall due;

(3) The necessary charges of paying agents for paying principal and interest, if any;  and

(4) Any premium upon bonds retired by call or purchase as provided in Code Section 20-2-555.

The use and disposition of such sinking fund shall be subject to such covenants and regulations as may be provided in the resolution authorizing the issuance of the revenue bonds or in the trust indenture, but, except as may otherwise be provided in such resolution or trust indenture, such sinking fund shall be a fund for the benefit of all revenue bonds without distinction or priority of one over another.  Subject to the provisions of the resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds or in the trust indenture, surplus moneys in the sinking fund may be applied to the purchase or redemption of bonds;  and any such bonds so purchased or redeemed shall immediately be canceled and shall not again be issued.
