Section 2-5A-36

Establishment of debt service reserve fund.

A debt service reserve fund may be established and maintained in such an amount and under such conditions for any or all series of the bonds as may be determined by the Board of Agriculture and Industries in its resolution relating to the bonds. The Department of Agriculture and Industries may make payments from bond proceeds or any other funds or revenues available to it into the debt service reserve fund. Income earned from the investment of monies held in the debt service reserve fund may be used by the Department of Agriculture and Industries for any purpose designated by the Board of Agriculture and Industries that would constitute a permitted use of funds of the Department of Agriculture and Industries under Act 98-243. Monies on deposit in the debt service reserve fund shall be invested only in permitted investments and the department is authorized to determine the conditions for the utilization of the debt service reserve fund in its resolution relating to the bonds secured thereby, and by the terms of such resolution, to dedicate and pledge such fund and the investment earnings therefrom to payment of debt service on the bonds.
