Form; procedure.

(a) Appropriation bonds may be issued in the form
of bonds, notes, or other similar instruments, and in the manner provided in section
16A.672. In the event that any provision of section 16A.672 conflicts with this section,
this section shall control.

(b) Every appropriation bond shall include a conspicuous statement of the limitation
established in subdivision 6.

(c) Appropriation bonds may be sold at either public or private sale upon such terms
as the commissioner shall determine are not inconsistent with this section and may be sold
at any price or percentage of par value. Any bid received may be rejected.

(d) Appropriation bonds must bear interest at a fixed or variable rate.

(e) Notwithstanding any other law, appropriation bonds issued under this section
shall be fully negotiable.

Subd. 4.

Refunding bonds.

The commissioner may issue appropriation bonds
for the purpose of refunding any appropriation bonds then outstanding, including the
payment of any redemption premiums on the bonds, any interest accrued or to accrue to
the redemption date, and costs related to the issuance and sale of the refunding bonds. The
proceeds of any refunding bonds may, in the discretion of the commissioner, be applied
to the purchase or payment at maturity of the appropriation bonds to be refunded, to the
redemption of the outstanding appropriation bonds on any redemption date, or to pay
interest on the refunding bonds and may, pending application, be placed in escrow to be
applied to the purchase, payment, retirement, or redemption. Any escrowed proceeds,
pending such use, may be invested and reinvested in obligations that are authorized
investments under section 11A.24. The income earned or realized on the investment may
also be applied to the payment of the appropriation bonds to be refunded or interest or
premiums on the refunded appropriation bonds, or to pay interest on the refunding bonds.
After the terms of the escrow have been fully satisfied, any balance of the proceeds and
any investment income may be returned to the general fund or, if applicable, the special
appropriation Lewis and Clark bond proceeds fund for use in any lawful manner. All
refunding bonds issued under this subdivision must be prepared, executed, delivered, and
secured by appropriations in the same manner as the appropriation bonds to be refunded.

Subd. 5.

Appropriation bonds as legal investments.

Any of the following entities
may legally invest any sinking funds, money, or other funds belonging to them or under
their control in any appropriation bonds issued under this section:

(1) the state, the investment board, public officers, municipal corporations, political
subdivisions, and public bodies;

(2) banks and bankers, savings and loan associations, credit unions, trust companies,
savings banks and institutions, investment companies, insurance companies, insurance
associations, and other persons carrying on a banking or insurance business; and

(3) personal representatives, guardians, trustees, and other fiduciaries.

Subd. 6.

No full faith and credit; state not required to make appropriations.

The
appropriation bonds are not public debt of the state, and the full faith, credit, and taxing
powers of the state are not pledged to the payment of the appropriation bonds or to any
payment that the state agrees to make under this section. Appropriation bonds shall not be
obligations paid directly, in whole or in part, from a tax of statewide application on any
class of property, income, transaction, or privilege. Appropriation bonds shall be payable
in each fiscal year only from amounts that the legislature may appropriate for debt service
for any fiscal year, provided that nothing in this section shall be construed to require the
state to appropriate money sufficient to make debt service payments with respect to the
appropriation bonds in any fiscal year. Appropriation bonds shall be canceled and shall
no longer be outstanding on the earlier of (1) the first day of a fiscal year for which the
legislature shall not have appropriated amounts sufficient for debt service, or (2) the date
of final payment of the principal of and interest on the appropriation bonds.

Type and amount of assistance.

(a) For a governmental unit receiving

of a grant of up to 65 percent of the eligible grant need determined by USDA/RECD. A
governmental unit may not receive a grant under this paragraph for more than deleted text begin$4,000,000

under section 446A.07, the authority may provide assistance under this section in the form
of a grant if the average annual residential wastewater system cost after completion of the
project would otherwise exceed 1.4 percent of the median household income of the project
service area. In determining whether the average annual residential wastewater system
cost would exceed 1.4 percent, the authority must consider the total costs associated with
building, operating, and maintaining the wastewater system, including existing wastewater
debt service, debt service on the eligible project cost, and operation and maintenance
costs. Debt service costs for the proposed project are calculated based on the maximum
loan term permitted for the clean water revolving fund loan under section 446A.07,
subdivision 7
. The amount of the grant is equal to 80 percent of the amount needed to
reduce the average annual residential wastewater system cost to 1.4 percent of median

exceed 80 percent of the eligible project cost.

new text begin (c) For a governmental unit receiving a loan from the drinking water revolving
fund under section 446A.081, the authority may provide assistance under this section in
the form of a grant if the average annual residential drinking water system cost after
completion of the project would otherwise exceed 1.2 percent of the median household
income of the project service area. In determining whether the average annual residential
drinking water system cost would exceed 1.2 percent, the authority must consider the total
costs associated with building, operating, and maintaining the drinking water system,
including existing drinking water debt service, debt service on the eligible project cost,
and operation and maintenance costs. Debt service costs for the proposed project are
calculated based on the maximum loan term permitted for the drinking water revolving
fund loan under section 446A.081, subdivision 8, paragraph (c). The amount of the grant
is equal to 80 percent of the amount needed to reduce the average annual residential
drinking water system cost to 1.2 percent of median household income in the project
service area, to a maximum of $5,000,000 per project or $20,000 per existing connection,
whichever is less, unless specifically approved by law. The eligible project cost is
