39-1449. Bonds. (a) The authority is authorized from time to time to issue its bonds in such principal amount as the authority shall determine for the purpose of financing all or a part of the cost of any facilities authorized hereby or for the refinancing of outstanding obligations. In anticipation of the sale of such bonds, the authority may issue bond anticipation notes and may renew the same from time to time. Such notes shall be paid from any revenues of the authority or other moneys available therefor and not otherwise pledged, or from the proceeds of sale of the bonds of the authority in anticipation of which they were issued. The notes shall be issued in the same manner as bonds. Such notes and the resolution or resolutions authorizing the same may contain any provisions, conditions or limitations which a bond resolution of the authority may contain.
(b) The bonds may be issued as serial bonds or as term bonds or a combination of both types. All bonds issued by the authority shall be payable solely out of the revenues and receipts derived from the leasing, mortgaging or sale by the authority of the facilities concerned or of any part thereof as may be designated in the resolutions of the authority under which the bonds shall be authorized to be issued or as may be designated in a trust indenture authorized by the authority, which such trust indenture shall name a bank or trust company within or without the state of Idaho as trustee or from other moneys available therefor and not otherwise pledged. Such bonds may be executed and delivered by the authority at any time and from time to time, may be in such form and denominations and of such terms and maturities, may be in fully registered form or in bearer form registerable either as to principal or interest or both, may bear such conversion privileges and be payable in such instalments and at such time or times not exceeding forty (40) years from the date thereof, may be payable at such place or places whether within or without the state of Idaho, may bear interest at such rate or rates per annum as shall be determined by the authority and without regard to any interest rate limitation appearing in any other law, payable at such time or times and at such place or places and evidenced in such manner, may be executed by such officers of the authority, either manually or by facsimile, and coupon bonds shall have attached thereto interest coupons bearing the facsimile signature of an authorized officer of the authority and may contain such provisions not inconsistent herewith, all as shall be provided in the resolutions of the authority whereunder the bonds shall be authorized to be issued or as shall be provided in a trust indenture authorized by the authority. Notwithstanding any provision of this section to the contrary, in the case of obligations maturing not later than one (1) year from the date of issuance thereof, the authority may authorize the executive director, associate executive director or any officer of the authority to fix principal amounts, maturity dates, interest rates, and purchase prices of any particular issue of such short-term obligations, subject to such limitations as to maximum term, maximum principal amount outstanding, and maximum interest rates as the authority shall prescribe by resolution. Any such authorization shall remain effective for the period of time designated in the resolution, regardless of whether the composition of the authority changes in the interim.
(c) If deemed advisable by the authority there may be retained in the resolutions or the trust indenture under which any bonds of the authority are authorized to be issued an option to redeem all or any part thereof as may be specified in such resolutions or in such trust indenture, at such price or prices and after such notice or notices and on such terms and conditions as may be set forth in such resolutions or in such trust indenture, and as may be briefly recited on the face of the bonds, but nothing herein contained shall be construed to confer on the authority the right or option to redeem any bonds except as may be provided in the resolutions or in such trust indenture under which they shall be issued.
(d) The bonds or notes of the authority may be sold at public or private sale for such price or prices and in such manner and from time to time as may be determined by the authority, and the authority may pay all expenses, premiums and commissions which it may deem necessary or advantageous in connection with the issuance thereof. The power to fix the date of sale of bonds and notes, to receive bids or proposals, to award and sell bonds and notes, and to take all other necessary action to sell and deliver bonds and notes may be delegated to the executive director of the authority by resolution of the authority. Pending preparation of the definitive bonds, the authority may issue interim receipts or certificates which shall be exchanged for such definitive bonds.
(e) Issuance by the authority of one (1) or more series of bonds for one (1) or more purposes shall not preclude it from issuing other bonds in connection with the same facilities or any other facilities or any other purpose hereunder, but the resolutions or trust indenture whereunder any subsequent bonds may be issued shall recognize and protect any prior pledge or mortgage made for any prior issue of bonds. Any bonds of the authority at any time outstanding may at any time and from time to time be refunded by the authority by the issuance of its bonds for such purpose in such amount as the authority may deem necessary and, if deemed advisable by the authority, for the additional purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of constructing and acquiring additions, improvements, extensions or enlargements of a facility or any portion thereof.
Any such refunding may be effected whether the bonds to be refunded shall have then matured or shall thereafter mature, either by sale of the refunding bonds and the application of the proceeds thereof for the payment of the bonds to be refunded thereby, or by the exchange of the refunding bonds for the bonds to be refunded thereby with the consent of the holders of the bonds so to be refunded, and regardless of whether or not the bonds to be refunded were issued in connection with the same facilities or separate facilities or for any other purpose hereunder, and regardless of whether or not the bonds proposed to be refunded shall be payable on the same date or different dates or shall be due serially or otherwise. The proceeds of any such bonds issued for the purpose of refunding outstanding bonds may, in the discretion of the authority, be applied to the purchase or retirement at maturity or redemption of such outstanding bonds either on their earliest or any subsequent redemption date or upon the purchase or at the maturity thereof and may, pending such application, be placed in escrow to be applied to such purchase or retirement at maturity or redemption on such date as may be determined by the authority. Any such escrowed proceeds, pending such use, may be invested and reinvested in obligations determined by the authority. The interest, income and profits, if any, earned or realized on any such investment may also be applied to the payment of the outstanding bonds or notes to be so refunded, to the payment of principal or interest on the refunding bonds or may be used by the authority in any lawful manner. After the terms of the escrow have been fully satisfied and carried out, any balance of such proceeds and interest, income and profits, if any, earned or realized on the investments thereof may be returned to the authority for use by it in any lawful manner. The portion of the proceeds of any such bonds issued for the additional purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of constructing and acquiring additions, improvements, extensions or enlargements of a facility may be invested and reinvested in obligations determined by the authority. The interest, income and profits, if any, earned or realized on such investment may be applied to the payment of all or any part of such cost or may be used by the authority in any lawful manner. All such bonds shall be subject to the provisions of this act in the same manner and to the same extent as other bonds issued pursuant to this act. All bonds and the interest coupons applicable thereto are hereby made and shall be construed to be negotiable instruments within the meaning of and for all the purposes of article 8, uniform commercial code, subject only to the provisions of such bonds, notes or other obligations for registration.
