446A.13 TENDER OPTION.

An obligation may be issued giving its owner the right to tender or the authority to demand tender of the obligation to the authority or another person designated by it, for purchase at a specified time or times, if the authority has first entered into an agreement with a suitable financial institution obligating the financial institution to provide funds on a timely basis for purchase of bonds tendered. The obligation is not considered to mature on any tender date and the purchase of a tendered obligation is not considered a payment or discharge of the obligation by the authority. Obligations tendered for purchase may be remarketed by or on behalf of the authority or another purchaser. The authority may enter into agreements it considers appropriate to provide for the purchase and remarketing of tendered obligations, including:

(1) provisions under which undelivered obligations may be considered tendered for purchase and new obligations may be substituted for them;

(2) provisions for the payment of charges of tender agents, remarketing agents, and financial institutions extending lines of credit or letters of credit assuring repurchase; and

(3) provisions for reimbursement of advances under letters of credit that may be paid from the proceeds of the obligations or from tax and other revenues appropriated for the payment and security of the obligations and similar or related provisions.
