Section 2-3A-53

Alabama Agricultural and Textile Technology Facilities Improvement Fund.

The proceeds derived from the sale of each series of the bonds issued pursuant to Section 2-3A-50 shall be paid into the State Treasury upon receipt thereof, and the State Treasurer shall keep such proceeds, as well as all income received from the investment and reinvestment of such proceeds (including income derived from the investment and reinvestment of previously derived income), in a special fund in the State Treasury, designated "The Alabama Agricultural and Textile Technology Facilities Improvement Fund," pending the expenditure of such proceeds and income for the purposes hereinafter authorized and as required by Amendment 619. All proceeds so deposited in the State Treasury shall be continuously invested by the State Treasurer in investments of the same kind as those in which the State Treasurer is at the time legally authorized to invest moneys held in the General Fund of the state, and as and when income from the investment of such proceeds is received, such income shall be kept continuously invested in the same manner as such proceeds; provided, however, that notwithstanding any legal limitation that might otherwise be applicable, the State Treasurer shall have the authority to invest such proceeds and income in certificates of deposit of any savings and loan association, whether federally or state chartered, whose principal office is located in the state. The State Treasurer, acting on projections of expenditures provided by the Director of Finance, shall keep all such proceeds, together with the income derived from the investment and reinvestment thereof, invested in investments which shall mature or otherwise be subject to liquidation on such terms as will provide cash when required for the purposes for which bonds may be issued pursuant to Section 2-3A-50.
