AS 19.75.211. Bonds of the Authority.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the authority may borrow money and issue and refund bonds on which the principal and interest are paid out of and secured by the gross revenue derived by the authority from the ownership, use, and operation of its toll facilities, including money derived from the fees, rents, tolls, rates, charges, and other revenue of the authority under this chapter and any other revenue or money that the legislature may appropriate, except a state tax or license. Before issuing bonds for the Knik Arm bridge, the authority shall submit to the state bond committee a description of the bond issue and a preliminary prospectus, offering circular, or official statement relating to the bond issue. Bonds may not be issued unless the state bond committee finds, based upon the information submitted by the authority under this section and other information that is reasonably available to the committee, that the Knik Arm bridge revenue and other revenue available to the authority can be reasonably expected to be adequate for payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds to be issued and that issuance of the bonds by the authority would not be expected to adversely affect the ability of the state or its political subdivisions to market bonds.

(b) The bonds of the authority may be sold in the amounts or series and at the time determined by its board of directors. Bonds, or a series of bonds, may not be sold if the effective interest rate over the life of the bonds exceeds 11 percent a year or a rate of interest that is 125 percent of the rate of the Bond Buyer Index of 20 Municipal Bond Average Yields for the week previous to the date of the sale of the bonds, whichever is higher.

(c) The authority may issue bonds in an aggregate amount not to exceed $500,000,000, plus the cost of issuance.

(d) The amount of refunding bonds that may be issued by the authority and bond premiums may not be included in the aggregate amount, but may be in addition to the amount authorized by (c) of this section.
