(a) The department, with the approval of the governor, may issue special purpose revenue bonds for each single project or multi-project program for not-for-profit private organizations, for-profit private organizations, and public instrumentalities and their qualified affiliates engaged in the development of low- and moderate-income housing that has been authorized by a separate act of the legislature, by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members to which each house is entitled; provided that the legislature shall find that the issuance of the special purpose revenue bonds is in the public interest; and provided further that no authorization shall be made for a period exceeding five years of its enactment. Any special purpose revenue bond authorization, or any portion of a special purpose revenue bond authorization, which has not been issued at the close of the fiscal year for the period for which the authorization is made, shall lapse. Special purpose revenue bonds issued pursuant to this part may be in one or more series for a single project, multiple projects, a single-project party, or multiple-project parties pursuant to the authority of one, or the combined authority of more than one, separate act of the legislature.
The department may combine into a single issue of special purpose revenue bonds two or more proposed issues of special purpose revenue bonds to assist not-for-profit private organizations, for-profit private organizations, and public instrumentalities and their qualified affiliates in the development of low- and moderate-income housing, separately authorized and approved by the governor as aforesaid, in the total amount not exceeding the aggregate of the proposed separate issues of special purpose revenue bonds. The special purpose revenue bonds of each issue:
(1) Shall be dated;
(2) Shall bear interest at a rate or rates;
(3) Shall mature at a time or times, not to exceed forty years from their date or dates;
(4) Shall have a rank or priority; and
(5) May be made redeemable before maturity at the option of the department, at a price or prices and under terms and conditions,
all as may be determined by the department.
The department shall determine the form of the special purpose revenue bonds, including any interest coupons to be attached, and the manner of execution of the special purpose revenue bonds. The department shall also fix the denomination or denominations of the special purpose revenue bonds and the place or places of payment of principal and interest, which may be at any bank or trust company approved by the director of finance within or without the State. The special purpose revenue bonds may be issued in coupon or in registered form, or both, as the department may determine. Provisions may be made for the registration of any coupon bonds as to principal alone and also as to both principal and interest and for the reconversion into coupon bonds of any bonds registered as to both principal and interest. The department may sell special purpose revenue bonds in a manner, either at public or private sale, and for a price as it may determine.
(b) Prior to the preparation of definitive special purpose revenue bonds, the department may issue interim receipts or temporary bonds, with or without coupons, exchangeable for definitive bonds when the bonds have been executed and are available for delivery.
(c) Should any bond issued under this part or any coupon pertaining to such a bond become mutilated or be lost, stolen, or destroyed, the department may cause a new bond or coupon of like date, number, and tenor to be executed and delivered in exchange and substitution for and upon the cancellation of the mutilated bond or coupon, or in lieu of and in substitution for the lost, stolen, or destroyed bond or coupon.
The new bond or coupon shall not be executed or delivered until the holder of the mutilated, lost, stolen, or destroyed bond or coupon has:
(1) Paid the reasonable expense and charges in connection therewith;
(2) Filed with the department or its fiduciary evidence satisfactory to the department or its fiduciary that the bond or coupon was lost, stolen, or destroyed, if such was the case, and that the holder was the owner; and
(3) Has furnished indemnity satisfactory to the department.
(d) In its discretion, the department may direct that CUSIP identification numbers shall be printed on the bonds. If CUSIP identification numbers are imprinted on the bonds:
(1) No such number shall constitute a part of the contract evidenced by the particular bond upon which it is imprinted; and
(2) No liability shall attach to the department or any of its officers or agents, including any fiscal agent, paying agent, or registrar for the bonds, because of the numbers or their use, including any use made by the department or any of its officers or agents, or because of any inaccuracy, error, or omission with respect thereto or in the numbers' use.
In its discretion, the department may require that all costs of obtaining and imprinting the CUSIP identification numbers shall be paid by the purchaser of the bonds.
For the purposes of this subsection, “CUSIP identification numbers” means the numbering system adopted by the Committee for Uniform Security Identification Procedures formed by the Securities Industry Association.
