(a) This chapter is intended to aid the state through the furtherance of the purposes of the chapter by providing appropriate and independent instrumentalities with full and adequate powers to fulfill their functions. Except as expressly provided in this chapter, no proceeding, notice, or approval shall be required for the incorporation of any authority or the amendment of its certificate of incorporation, the purchase of any note or other instrument secured by a mortgage, deed of trust, note, or other security interest, the issuance of any bonds, the execution of any mortgage and deed of trust or trust indenture, or the exercise of any other of its powers by an authority. Neither a public hearing nor the consent of the State Department of Finance or any other department, agency, bureau, board, or corporation of the state shall be prerequisite to the issuance of bonds by an authority.
(b) To the extent that Section 22-27-5 might in any way be applicable to the actions of the authority, the said section is hereby declared to be inapplicable, including particularly the provisions of the said section providing for the cancellation of contracts of counties and municipalities, and individuals, corporations, partnerships, or other agencies engaging in the collection and disposal of solid waste. Each authority shall, however, be subject to the provisions of Article 1 of Chapter 27 of Title 22 (other than the provisions of the said Section 22-27-5) respecting sanitary requirements in the disposal of solid waste.
