Section 11-92-7

Warrants - Security for payment of principal and interest.

(a) The governing body of any participant may assign and specially pledge any tax or any part thereof for the payment of the principal of and interest on warrants.

(b) To the extent necessary to make the payment of the principal of and interest on the warrants, any tax or sales proceeds so pledged shall constitute a trust fund which shall be impressed with a lien in favor of the holders of such warrants. If, pursuant to this section, more than one pledge is made of any tax, then the pledges shall take precedence in the order that they are made, unless the proceedings making the pledge shall provide that it shall be on a parity or subordinate to a subsequent pledge. All warrants benefitting from a pledge shall constitute preferred claims against the tax or sales proceeds pledged, subject to any prior pledges existing at the time of issuance of the warrants, and shall have preference over claims incurred by the county or municipality for any other purpose.
