appropriated or transferred to the authority and other money or assets deposited in it by the authority.
- (b) The authority may establish in the enterprise development account the accounts it considers appropriate.
- (c) Money and other assets of the enterprise development account may be used to secure bonds of the authority issued to

- (d) A loan participation purchased by the authority with assets of the enterprise development account or with proceeds of
bonds secured by assets of the enterprise development account

participation may exceed $20,000,000 with legislative approval;
- (2) may not be purchased unless
- (A) the project applicant is not, or, if the applicant is not a single proprietorship, all members of the business
enterprise or enterprises constituting the project applicant are not, in default on another loan made by the state or
by a public corporation of the state; and
- (B) at least 10 percent of the principal amount of the loan is retained by the loan originator;
- (3) may not be purchased if the loan to be purchased exceeds 75 percent of the appraised value of the collateral offered
as security for the loan unless the amount of the loan in excess of this limit is federally insured or guaranteed or is
insured by a qualified mortgage insurance company, except that the loan to be purchased under this paragraph may not
exceed the total of loan proceeds used to refinance an existing debt plus the cost of new construction, expansion, or
acquisition unless the proceeds from the additional amounts of the loan to be purchased are restricted to uses approved
by the authority to finance commercial activity in the state by a business enterprise;
- (4) may not be purchased if the participation in the loan to be purchased is for a term longer than the following, except
that a loan under (A) or (C) of this paragraph may not have a term longer than three-quarters of the authority's
estimate of the life of the collateral offered as security for the loan:
- (A) 40 years from the date the loan is made in the case of a loan participation for a project described in AS 44.88.900
- (B) 50 years from the date the loan is made in the case of a loan participation for a power transmission intertie;
- (C) 25 years from the date the loan is made in the case of a loan participation for other projects;
- (5) may be made only if the participation in the loan to be purchased contains amortization provisions; the amortization
- (A) must be complete and satisfactory to the authority and require periodic payments by the borrower;
- (B) may allow the loan originator to amortize the portion of the loan retained by the loan originator using a shorter
amortization schedule than the amortization schedule for the portion of the loan held by the authority if
- (i) in the authority's opinion, the project financed can support the increased debt service; and
- (ii) the accelerated amortization schedule is required to induce the originator to make the loan;
- (6) may be made only if the participation in the loan to be purchased is in the form and contains the terms and provisions
with respect to insurance, repairs, alterations, payment of taxes and assessments, default reserves, delinquency
charges, default remedies, acceleration of maturity, secondary liens, and other matters the authority prescribes; and
- (7) may be made only if the participation in the loan to be purchased is secured as to repayment by a mortgage or other
security instrument in the manner the authority determines is feasible to assure timely repayment under the loan
documents entered into with the borrower.
- (e) The authority may adopt regulations for the administration of the enterprise development account including, without
limitation, provisions for fees and agreements relating to application, loan commitment, servicing, and origination of
loans by other lenders.
- (f) The authority may enter into agreements as to the use of the money in the enterprise development account, including
without limitation, trust or custody arrangements with banks or trust companies. It may also pledge, assign, or grant
the agreement, interests under an agreement, or interests in the enterprise development account as may be necessary or
appropriate to provide for payment and security for bonds of the authority issued to finance the purchase by the
authority of loans for projects.
- (g) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, the authority may waive or modify the requirements of this
section as it considers appropriate and prudent in order to finance a project if the authority intends to own the
project or in order to finance a power transmission intertie project.
- (h) The provisions of this section apply only with respect to a loan participation purchased by the authority for projects
under AS 44.88.155 - 44.88.159.
