A. Subject to the provisions of paragraph 12 of subsection B of Section 8 of this act,1 the University Hospitals Authority may provide by resolution, from time to time, for the issuance of revenue bonds for its lawful purposes, in such amount or amounts as are necessary, incidental or convenient to the exercise of powers, rights, privileges and functions conferred upon it by the University Hospitals Authority Act or other law. The principal of and interest on any indebtedness shall be payable solely from the revenues of the Authority and such other funds as may be provided by law for such payment. The Authority may provide for credit enhancement as additional security or liquidity for its bonds and enter into such agreements as may be necessary or appropriate to provide for the repayment of any funds advanced by the provider of any such credit enhancement including the payment of any fees and expenses incurred in connection therewith. The bonds of each issue shall bear interest at fixed or variable rates and shall bear an average interest rate not to exceed eleven percent (11%) per annum, shall mature at such time or times not exceeding thirty (30) years from their date or dates of issue, as may be determined by the Authority, and may be made redeemable before maturity at the option of the Authority, at such time or times and at such price or prices and pursuant to such terms and conditions as may be fixed by the Authority prior to the issuance of the bonds. The Authority shall determine the form of the bonds and the manner of execution thereof, and shall fix the denominations of the bonds and the place or places of payment of principal and interest, which may be at any bank and trust company within or without this state. If any officer whose signature or facsimile of whose signature appears on any bonds shall cease to be said officer before the delivery of the bonds, the signature or the facsimile shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes, the same as if the person had remained in office until such delivery. All bonds issued pursuant to the provisions of the University Hospitals Authority Act shall have all the qualities and incidences of negotiable instruments subject to the laws of this state. The Authority may sell the bonds in such amounts and in such manner, either at public or private sale, and for such price, as it may determine to be in the best interests of the state. If the bonds are not sold by competitive bid, the sale must be approved by the State Bond Advisor.
B. All fees and expenses of bond sales must be approved by the State Bond Advisor and the Bond Oversight Commission. Prior to the preparation of definitive bonds, the Authority, subject to like restrictions, may issue interim receipts or temporary bonds, with or without coupons, exchangeable for definitive bonds which have been executed and are available for delivery. The Authority may also provide for the replacement of any bonds which have become mutilated or which have been destroyed or lost. Except as otherwise provided by Section 19 of this act,2 bonds may be issued pursuant to the provisions of the University Hospitals Authority Act without obtaining the consent of any department, division, commission, board, bureau, or agency of this state, and without any other proceedings or the occurrence of any other conditions or things than those proceedings, conditions, or things that are specifically required by the University Hospitals Authority.
C. The Authority may, by resolution, provide for the issuance of refunding bonds then outstanding, including the payment of any redemption premium, any interest accrued to the date of redemption of such bonds, and for incurring additional indebtedness for its lawful purposes. The issuance of such bonds shall be governed by the provisions of the University Hospitals Authority Act.
