(a) The general assembly finds and declares that:

(1) Financing costs incurred by local governments in connection with capital projects are a significant factor in the ability of the local governments to meet the needs of their communities;  and

(2) To the extent that financing of capital projects can be accomplished less expensively through the pooling together of needs and the use of less costly borrowing techniques, local governments would be better able to provide capital projects, and other essential services for the benefit of their citizens and taxpayers.

(b)(1) It is accordingly in furtherance of the interests and welfare of all Tennesseans that the Tennessee local development authority be empowered to issue its revenue bonds and to make the proceeds available for loans to local government units for capital projects, at a cost that is lower than would otherwise be readily obtainable.

(2) It is intended that the Tennessee local development authority be vested with all powers necessary to accomplish these purposes.
