1-16E-12. Bond authorization, terms, and sale--Interest rate--Noninterest bearing bonds. The bonds shall be authorized by a resolution of the authority, shall bear such date or dates and shall mature at such time or times as the resolution or the instrument providing for the issuance of such bonds may provide, except that no bond may mature more than fifty years from the date of its issue. The bonds shall bear interest at such rate or rates, be in such denominations, be in such form, either coupon or registered, be evidenced by physical certificates or uncertificated, carry such registration privileges, be executed in such manner, be payable in such medium of payment, at such place or places, and be subject to such terms of redemption, including redemption prior to maturity, as such resolution or the instrument providing for the issuance of such bonds may provide. No other state laws relating to the offer, sale or issuance of revenue bonds or any other security may apply to bonds issued by the authority. Bonds of the authority may be sold by the authority at public or private sale, and at such price or prices as the authority shall determine.
The bonds of the authority may bear interest at a fixed, variable or adjustable rate (and may be convertible from one method of calculating interest to another) and such interest rate may be based upon any formula or contractual arrangement for the periodic determination of interest rates, all as may be established in the resolution or instrument providing for the issuance of such bonds. Any such formula or contractual arrangement may authorize the delegation of the interest rate setting function to a third party subject only to such standards or criteria as shall be set forth in the resolution or instrument providing for the issuance of such bonds. In no event may the setting or resetting of the rate of interest on the authority's bonds or the conversion from one method of determining interest to another constitute a reissuance or refunding of bonds issued by the authority if such action is taken in accordance with the resolution or instrument providing for the initial issuance of such bonds.
The authority may issue noninterest bearing bonds or bonds bearing interest at a rate of zero percent and sell the same at such price or prices as may be determined by the authority.
