AS 44.85.005. Legislative Findings.

The legislature finds that

(1) the rapid growth of municipalities in the state and the incorporation of new municipalities has created a demand for capital improvements that can only be met by these municipalities borrowing money through the issuance of bonds or notes;

(2) many of these municipalities, although creditworthy, either have not issued bonds or notes or have little outstanding debt;

(3) the cost of borrowed money to these municipalities is or may be unnecessarily high due to lack of investor familiarity with the municipalities;

(4) other municipalities in the state pay unnecessarily high borrowing costs because of the distance of the state from capital markets or may find borrowing difficult or impossible because of temporary economic dislocation due to loss of employment or prospective loss of employment.
