The commission appointed pursuant to section 40:62-109 of this title and any succeeding commission, however appointed or elected, shall be the fiscal agent of all municipalities represented by the commission for direct payment to the holders of the principal of and interest on all obligations of such municipalities, the payment of which the commission or its successors has or shall have hereafter formally assumed as provided in sections 40:62-108 to 40:62-150 of this title.

The chief financial officer of each such municipality shall furnish the commission or its successors with the names and addresses of the registered holders of such obligations as they may appear in his records, and shall promptly provide the commission with such other information from his records pertaining to such obligations and the payment of the principal thereof and interest thereon which the commission or its successors may request.

The commission or its successors shall have power to do all acts and things necessary or advisable to carry out its functions and perform its duties as such fiscal agent for the purpose hereof expressed.

Nothing herein contained, nor any act or thing done or to be done by the commission or its successors pursuant to this section, shall be construed as the assumption by the commission or its successors of the payment of any obligations or interest thereon not otherwise formally assumed as provided in said sections 40:62-108 to 40:62-150.

Nothing herein contained shall be construed to relieve any municipality issuing such obligations from its liability to pay the same from an unlimited ad valorem tax levied on all the taxable property in such municipality.  Nothing herein contained shall be construed to confer upon the commission power to issue any bonds or other obligations in the name of any municipality where the power to issue such obligations is vested solely in the municipality.
