The purchasing, financing, or payment activities are hereby determined to be components of the state water plan and are authorized without regard to § 46A-2-20. The district may enter into financing agreements with the persons or public entities to secure and provide for the payment of the bonds, without regard to § 46A-2-20 or §§ 46A-1-63.1 to 46A-1-69, inclusive.

The purchase or payment of loans for persons or public entities or projects located outside of the State of South Dakota is hereby authorized and declared to be a public purpose if, at the discretion and in the determination of the district, the purchase or payment is expected to result in economies of scale, fees, interest savings, financing, or other benefits to the district, South Dakota persons, or public entities or the State of South Dakota. The district, in the proceedings for the issuance of the bonds, shall establish the manner in which the trustee shall manage and disperse any savings for the benefit of the persons and public entities whose community facilities loans and water and waste disposal loans have been purchased or prepaid by the district. In addition to the aggregate indebtedness authorized by the Legislature and the Board of Water and Natural Resources pursuant to §§ 46A-1-29 and 46A-1-30, the district may also issue bonds in any amount at any time for the purpose of funding all or part of the revolving funds required for either the state water pollution control revolving fund program or the state drinking water revolving fund program or both under either the federal Clean Water Act, as amended to January 1, 2011, or federal Safe Drinking Water Act, as amended to January 1, 2011, or both. The bonds issued for these revolving fund programs shall be used to purchase or otherwise finance or provide for the purchase or payment of bonds or other obligations, including the refinancing of obligations previously issued or for projects previously completed. The purchasing, financing, or payment activities are hereby determined to be components of the state water facilities plan and are authorized without regard to § 46A-2-20. The district may enter into financing agreements with the persons or public entities to secure and provide for the payment of the bonds, without regard to § 46A-2-20 or §§ 46A-1-63.1 to 46A-1-69, inclusive.

The moneys may be held and invested pursuant to a trust agreement for the payment of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on, the bonds.
