Within thirty (30) days after this act shall become effective the Board shall meet and organize, electing a chairman, vice-chairman, secretary and treasurer. Bonds running to the State of Oklahoma shall be required of the chairman, treasurer and any other officer or employee having funds of the Authority in his control or possession in an amount to be determined by the Board.
B. A majority of the members shall constitute a quorum of the Board for the purpose of organizing the Authority and conducting the business thereof and, except in the instance of passing upon loan applications, all action may be taken by a vote of a majority of the members present, unless in any case the bylaws shall require a larger number. Approval or rejection of loan applications shall be by a majority vote of the full membership of the Board, the vote of each member being duly recorded thereon.
C. The Board shall have full authority to manage the properties and business of the Authority and to renegotiate loans and approve leases with new tenants when, in the sound business judgment of the Board, the remedy of foreclosure is not in the best interest of the State of Oklahoma; to be represented by the Office of Attorney General in all legal matters other than with respect to issuance of state industrial finance bonds; and to prescribe, amend, and repeal bylaws, rules and regulations governing the manner in which the business of the Authority shall be conducted. Out of any court awarded attorney fees in foreclosure actions successfully prosecuted by the Attorney General on behalf of the Authority, a sum equal to actual expenses incurred by that office shall be withheld and placed in the Attorney General's evidence fund; and a sum up to the full amount of attorney fees awarded by the court shall be placed in said evidence fund to the extent that proceeds of sale of the property being foreclosed upon shall exceed the unpaid balance on the Authority's loan, including delinquent interest thereon.
