Section 8-6-111

Legislative findings; purpose of article.

(a) The Legislature finds and determines that unscrupulous promoters may take advantage of the authorizing act by inducing issuers to issue industrial revenue bonds which careful investigation by the issuer or other responsible parties would reveal to be improvident. The standing of all issuers could be impaired and the purposes of the Legislature in enacting the authorizing act could be thwarted by those improvident issues.

(b) The purpose of this article is to provide a procedure whereby the State of Alabama, acting through the director and the commission, may assist in developing facts to aid the issuer in the exercise of its authority under the authorizing act, and, to that end, to delay the issuance of industrial revenue bonds pending adequate investigation by the director or to prevent the issue of industrial revenue bonds found to be improvident.
