(a) The amounts required to be paid to the authority under this chapter shall be paid by the authorizing county tax collector for the authorizing county, the principal municipality, and participating municipalities upon the payment schedule established pursuant to the terms of this chapter.

(b) If the authorizing county tax collector does not have ad valorem taxes due the authorizing county, the principal municipality, or any participating municipality sufficient to pay the amounts due under the provisions of this chapter, then the balance due as to any payment under this chapter shall be paid to the authority by the director of revenue of the authorizing county, if any, from any tax monies in his or her possession for distribution to the authorizing county, principal municipality, or participating municipality.

(c) If as to any payment due under this chapter, neither the authorizing county tax collector nor the revenue commissioner of the authorizing county, if any, shall have sufficient tax monies for distribution to the authorizing county, principal municipality, or a participating municipality in an amount sufficient to make the payment, then the balance of the payment shall be a priority claim subject, however, to any claims having a priority under or pursuant to any provision of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, or the Constitution of the United States, against any and all other funds of the authorizing county, or the participating municipality, and shall be paid directly by the authorizing county, principal municipality, or participating municipality to the authority.

(d) It is expressly provided that neither the authorizing county tax collector, revenue commissioner, nor the director of revenue of the authorizing county, if any, shall pay to the authority any monies, the payment of which would impair the obligation under any contract entered into by the authorizing county, the principal municipality, or any participating municipality prior to May 24, 2013, or any tax monies from levies made for a specific purpose under the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended.
