The authority shall have the power and is authorized to issue, from time to time, bond anticipation notes in anticipation of the issuance of bonds and to renew from time to time any bond anticipation notes by the issuance of new bond anticipation notes, whether the bond anticipation notes to be renewed have or have not matured. The authority may issue bond anticipation notes only to provide funds which would otherwise be provided by the issuance of the bonds in anticipation of which the bond anticipation notes are to be issued. The bond anticipation notes may be authorized, sold, executed, and delivered in the same manner as bonds. Any resolution or resolutions authorizing bond anticipation notes or any issue thereof may contain any provisions which the authority is authorized to include in any bonds. All bond anticipation notes shall be special obligations of the authority payable out of any revenues pledged to the payment of, or the proceeds to be derived from the issuance of, the bonds in anticipation of the issuance of which the bond anticipation notes shall have been issued. Validation of the bonds shall not be a condition precedent to the issuance of any bond anticipation notes, and it shall not be required that those bond anticipation notes be judicially validated. Bond anticipation notes shall not be issued in an amount exceeding the principal amount of the bonds in anticipation of which they are to be issued. The authority shall also have the power and is also authorized to issue, from time to time, its notes, which notes shall not be conditioned upon, and need not be related to, the anticipated issuance of bonds, for the purpose of providing funds for any of its corporate purposes. Notes may be authorized, secured, sold, executed and delivered in the same manner as bonds and shall be issued in such principal amounts as the authority shall determine. In the discretion of the authority, bond anticipation notes and notes may be validated in the same manner as bonds.
