Upon receipt of a completed application, the executive director shall set a date, time, and place for the hearing.

The notice shall include the date, time, and place of the hearing, the name of the eligible applicant, a general description of the project, and the right of individuals to request a local hearing. The hearing shall be held at the location stated in the notice unless, by the time scheduled for the hearing, the authority receives a written request that a local hearing be held.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If a local hearing is requested, the authority may cancel the previously scheduled hearing. The executive director shall set a date, time, and place for a local hearing and publish notice of the hearing in the local area as provided in this section. The date, time, and place for the local hearing must be reasonably convenient to persons affected by the project.

Following the public hearing, the authority shall send to the Governor's office, or the office of the designated official a statement describing each bond or series of bonds which it proposes to issue, along with a summary of the public comments received.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Following approval of the loan by the authority and upon completion of a public hearing and approval of the bond issuance by the Governor or another designated state official, the authority shall issue a bond, to be purchased by the bond purchaser, in the amount and fitting the terms of the loan to the eligible applicant. The principal and interest on the bond is a limited obligation payable solely out of the revenues derived from the loan to the eligible applicant or the project financed with the proceeds of the loan and the underlying collateral or other security furnished by or on behalf of the eligible applicant.
