accordance with the terms of the applicable agreement and resolution.
Any leasing of such dormitory and attendant facility or portion thereof
by the authority pursuant to the terms of this subparagraph shall not be
deemed to constitute a breach by the authority of the terms and

b. The authority shall likewise have power to make loans to any

dormitory authority, on such terms and conditions and for such period of
time or duration as may be determined by the board of estimate to be in
the public interest.
(d) The following provisions shall be applicable to agreements and
leases entered into between the authority and a local sponsor in
relation to the providing and financing by the authority of facilities
for locally sponsored community colleges, and to agreements and leases
entered into between the authority and the city university construction
fund in relation to the providing and financing by the authority of
facilities for city university community colleges.
(1) In addition to the provisions authorized by subdivision four of
section sixteen hundred eighty-two of this title four, any resolution or
resolutions authorizing any bonds for the purpose of financing the cost
of providing facilities for locally sponsored or city university
community colleges may contain provisions which may be a part of the
contract with the holders of such bonds providing for the creation and
establishment and maintenance of reserve funds and payments to such
reserve funds as hereinafter in this paragraph set forth.
(2) The authority may create and establish one or more reserve funds
to be known as debt service reserve funds and may pay into such reserve
funds (i) any moneys appropriated and made available by the state for
the purposes of such funds, (ii) any proceeds of the sale of bonds and
notes to the extent provided in the resolution of the authority
authorizing the issuance thereof, and (iii) any other moneys which may
be made available to the authority for the purposes of such funds from
any other source or sources. The moneys held in or credited to any debt
service reserve fund established under this paragraph, except as
hereinafter provided, shall be used solely for the payment of the
principal of bonds of the authority secured by such reserve fund, as the
same mature, the purchase of such bonds of the authority, the payment of
interest on such bonds of the authority or the payment of any redemption
premium required to be paid when such bonds are redeemed prior to
maturity; provided, however, that moneys in any such fund shall not be
withdrawn therefrom at any time in such amount as would reduce the
amount of such fund to less than the maximum amount of principal and
interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on
the bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve
fund, except for the purpose of paying principal and interest on the
bonds of the authority secured by such reserve fund maturing and
becoming due and for the payment of which other moneys of the authority
are not available. Any income or interest earned by, or increment to,
any such debt service reserve fund due to the investment thereof may be
transferred to any other fund or account of the authority to the extent
it does not reduce the amount of such debt service reserve fund below
the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due
in any succeeding calendar year on all bonds of the authority then
outstanding and secured by such reserve fund.
(3) The authority shall not issue bonds at any time if the maximum
amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in a
succeeding calendar year on the bonds outstanding and then to be issued
and secured by a debt service reserve fund will exceed the amount of
such reserve fund at the time of issuance, unless the authority at the
time of issuance of such bonds, shall deposit in such reserve fund from
the proceeds of the bonds so to be issued, or otherwise, an amount which
together with the amount then in such reserve fund, will be not less
than the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming
due in any succeeding calendar year on the bonds then to be issued and
on all other bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such
reserve fund.
(4) To ensure the continued operation and solvency of the authority
for the carrying out of the public purposes relating to providing
facilities for locally sponsored or city university community colleges
provision is made in the foregoing provisions of this paragraph d for
the accumulation in each debt service reserve fund of an amount equal to
the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due
in any succeeding calendar year on all bonds of the authority then
outstanding and secured by such reserve fund. In order further to ensure
the maintenance of such debt service reserve funds, there shall be
annually apportioned and paid to the authority for deposit in each debt
service reserve fund such sum, if any, as shall be certified by the
chairman of the authority to the governor and state director of the
budget as necessary to restore such reserve fund to an amount equal to
the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due
in any succeeding calendar year on the bonds of the authority then
outstanding and secured by such reserve fund. The chairman of the
authority shall annually, on or before December first, make and deliver
to the governor and state director of the budget his certificate stating
the sum, if any, required to restore each such debt service reserve fund
to the amount aforesaid, and the sum or sums so certified, if any, shall
be apportioned and paid to the authority during the then current state
fiscal year. The principal amount of bonds secured by a debt service
reserve fund or funds to which state funds are apportionable pursuant to
this subparagraph shall be limited to the total amount of bonds and
notes outstanding on the effective date of this act, plus the total
amount of bonds and notes contracted after the effective date of this
act to finance projects in progress on the effective date of this act as
determined by the New York state public authorities control board
created pursuant to section fifty of this chapter whose affirmative
determination shall be conclusive as to all matters of law and fact
solely for the purposes of the limitations contained in this
subparagraph, but in no event shall the total amount of bonds so secured
by such a debt service reserve fund or funds exceed two hundred seventy
million dollars for locally sponsored community colleges and four
hundred seventy million dollars for city university community colleges,
excluding bonds issued to refund such outstanding bonds until the date
of redemption of such outstanding bonds. As outstanding bonds so secured
are paid, the amount so secured shall be reduced accordingly but the
redemption of such outstanding bonds from the proceeds of refunding
bonds shall not reduce the amount so secured.
(5) In computing any debt service reserve fund for the purposes of
this paragraph, securities in which all or a portion of such reserve
fund shall be invested shall be valued at par, or if purchased at less
than par, at their cost to the authority.
(e) All the provisions of this title four not inconsistent with the
provisions of this section sixteen hundred eighty shall be applicable
with respect to any bonds of the authority issued to obtain funds for
the purpose of providing facilities for locally sponsored community
colleges.
(f) No agreement by the dormitory authority with a local sponsor shall
be effective unless and until it is approved by the state university
trustees and the state director of the budget or his designee and, in
the case of a locally sponsored community college in the city of New
York, it is also approved by the director of the budget of the city of
New York or his designee.

construction fund or with such fund and the city university with respect
to a city university community college, entered into prior to July
first, nineteen hundred eighty-five and no agreement entered into on or
after July first, nineteen hundred eighty-five which is supplemental to
any agreement entered into prior to such July first, shall be effective
unless and until it is approved by the state director of the budget or
his designee and by the director of the budget of the city of New York
or his designee.

and pledge to the authority any and all public funds to be apportioned
or otherwise made payable by a local sponsor or by the state of New York

college pursuant to the provisions of subdivision eight of section
sixty-three hundred four of the education law and any tuition and
instructional fees received from students attending such locally
sponsored community college.
All state officers and local sponsors concerned are hereby authorized
to pay all such funds so assigned and pledged to the commissioner of
taxation and finance for deposit in the community college tuition and
instructional income fund.

10-a. Subject to the provisions of chapter fifty-nine of the laws of
two thousand, but notwithstanding any other provision of the law to the
contrary, the maximum amount of bonds and notes to be issued after March
thirty-first, two thousand two, on behalf of the state, in relation to
any locally sponsored community college, shall be two hundred ten
million dollars. Such amount shall be exclusive of bonds and notes
issued to fund any reserve fund or funds, costs of issuance and to
refund any outstanding bonds and notes, issued on behalf of the state,
relating to a locally sponsored community college.

11. In the case of any locally sponsored community college, other than
a locally sponsored community college in the city of New York or a
locally sponsored community college where the local sponsor has entered

a facility for such college, construction of the facilities may be
performed by the local sponsor under existing statute.

of New York or in the case of a locally sponsored community college
where the local sponsor has entered into an agreement with the dormitory
authority to finance and construct a facility for such college, any
construction of such facility shall be performed by the dormitory
authority pursuant to the provisions of this title four.

13. Upon application of a local sponsor of a locally sponsored
community college, which application has been approved by the state
university trustees and the state director of the budget or his designee
and, in the case of a locally sponsored community college in the city of
New York, has also been approved by the director of the budget of the
city of New York or his designee, the dormitory authority may acquire,
design, construct, reconstruct, rehabilitate and improve, and furnish
and equip or otherwise provide facilities pursuant to the provisions of
this title four and in such event the obligations of the authority
issued to finance the cost of such project shall be repaid pursuant to
an agreement between such local sponsor and the dormitory authority. The
dormitory authority may issue its bonds to finance the local sponsor's
portion of the cost of such project either together with or separate
from the bonds issued by the dormitory authority to finance the state's
portion of the cost of such project.

14. (a) During any twelve month period beginning with a July first and
ending on a June thirtieth, hereinafter referred to in this subdivision
as a "school year", the dormitory authority shall not deliver a series
of bonds for any locally sponsored community college project, except to
refund or to be substituted for or in lieu of other bonds in relation to
such locally sponsored community college, unless (1) the amount of
tuition and instructional fees received by the local sponsor from
students attending such locally sponsored community college for the
school year immediately preceding the school year in which such bonds
are proposed to be delivered shall exceed the amount which the
commissioner of taxation and finance is required to maintain on deposit
in the community college tuition and instructional income fund pursuant
to the provisions of subdivision five of section ninety-seven-p of the
state finance law for such locally sponsored community college, or
(2) the local sponsor of such locally sponsored community college

university community college facilities pursuant to a resolution of the
dormitory authority adopted before July first, nineteen hundred
eighty-five or any resolution supplemental thereto, if the principal
amount of bonds so to be issued when added to all principal amounts of
bonds previously issued by the dormitory authority for city university
community college facilities, except to refund or to be substituted in
lieu of other bonds in relation to city university community college
facilities will exceed the sum of four hundred twenty-five million

amount of bonds previously issued pursuant to any such resolution,
except bonds issued to refund or to be substituted for or in lieu of
other bonds in relation to city university facilities, will exceed four

reserves the right to amend or repeal such limit, and the state of New

time for which a local sponsor may contract, (iii) requires that the

apply to powers in connection with the provision of dormitories for New
Hope Community, Inc., by the dormitory authority pursuant to this title.
Except to the extent otherwise prohibited by law, New Hope Community,
Inc., shall have full power and authority to assign and pledge to the
dormitory authority any and all public funds to be apportioned or
otherwise made payable by the federal government, any agency thereof,
the state of New York, a political subdivision, as defined in section
one hundred of the general municipal law, or any social services
district in the state of New York in an amount sufficient to make all
payments required to be made by any such organization pursuant to any
lease, sublease or other agreement entered into between such
organization and the dormitory authority.
All state and local officers are hereby authorized and required to pay
all such funds so assigned and pledged to the dormitory authority or,
upon the direction of the dormitory authority, to any trustee of any
dormitory authority bond or note issued pursuant to a certificate filed
with any such state or local officer by the dormitory authority pursuant
to the provisions of this subdivision.

* NB There are 4 sub 19's

* 19. (a) The dormitory authority is empowered and authorized to enter
into a lease, sublease or other agreement with the state university
construction fund pursuant to which one or more state university
educational facilities are to be designed, acquired, constructed,
reconstructed, rehabilitated, improved or otherwise provided, or state
university educational facilities are to be furnished or equipped,
provided that such lease, sublease, or other agreement has been approved
by the state university of New York, which shall be a party thereto.
Such lease, sublease or other agreement may provide for the payment of
annual rentals and other payments by the state university construction
fund to the authority and contain such other terms and conditions as may
be agreed upon by the parties thereto, including, but not limited to,
provisions relating to the maintenance and operation of the state
university educational facilities, the establishment of reserve funds,
indemnities and the disposition of a facility or the interest of the
authority therein prior to or upon the termination or expiration of such
lease, sublease or other agreement. Such lease, sublease or other
agreement shall be subject to the approval of the director of the
budget.
(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of the public lands law or any
other law to the contrary, the state of New York, the state university
of New York and the state university construction fund may sell, convey,
lease, exchange or otherwise make available to the authority, for
nominal consideration, the title to or an interest in real property for
the purpose of providing state university educational facilities and may
enter into any lease, sublease or other agreement with the authority in
connection with state university educational facilities without public
auction or bidding or restriction as to the term of such lease, sublease
or other agreement.
(c) Subject to the provisions of chapter fifty-nine of the laws of two
thousand, the dormitory authority shall not issue any bonds for state
university educational facilities purposes if the principal amount of
bonds to be issued when added to the aggregate principal amount of bonds
issued by the dormitory authority on and after July first, nineteen
hundred eighty-eight for state university educational facilities will
exceed six billion dollars; provided, however, that bonds issued or to
be issued shall be excluded from such limitation if: (1) such bonds are
issued to refund state university construction bonds and state
university construction notes previously issued by the housing finance
agency; or (2) such bonds are issued to refund bonds of the authority or
other obligations issued for state university educational facilities
purposes and the present value of the aggregate debt service on the
refunding bonds does not exceed the present value of the aggregate debt
service on the bonds refunded thereby; provided, further that upon
certification by the director of the budget that the issuance of
refunding bonds or other obligations issued between April first,
nineteen hundred ninety-two and March thirty-first, nineteen hundred
ninety-three will generate long term economic benefits to the state, as
assessed on a present value basis, such issuance will be deemed to have
met the present value test noted above. For purposes of this
subdivision, the present value of the aggregate debt service of the
refunding bonds and the aggregate debt service of the bonds refunded,
shall be calculated by utilizing the true interest cost of the refunding
bonds, which shall be that rate arrived at by doubling the semi-annual
interest rate (compounded semi-annually) necessary to discount the debt
service payments on the refunding bonds from the payment dates thereof
to the date of issue of the refunding bonds to the purchase price of the
refunding bonds, including interest accrued thereon prior to the
issuance thereof. The maturity of such bonds, other than bonds issued to
refund outstanding bonds, shall not exceed the weighted average economic
life, as certified by the state university construction fund, of the
facilities in connection with which the bonds are issued, and in any
case not later than the earlier of thirty years or the expiration of the
term of any lease, sublease or other agreement relating thereto;
provided that no note, including renewals thereof, shall mature later
than five years after the date of issuance of such note. The legislature
reserves the right to amend or repeal such limit, and the state of New
York, the dormitory authority, the state university of New York, and the
state university construction fund are prohibited from covenanting or
making any other agreements with or for the benefit of bondholders which
might in any way affect such right.
(d) (1) (i) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the bonds of
the authority issued for state university educational facilities
purposes shall be sold to the bidder offering the lowest true interest
cost, taking into consideration any premium or discount, not less than
four nor more than fifteen days, Sundays excepted, after a notice of
such sale has been published at least once in a newspaper of general
circulation in the area served by the authority, which shall state the
terms of the sale. The terms of the sale may not change unless notice of
such change is published in such newspaper at least one day prior to the
date of the sale as set forth in the original notice of sale.
Advertisements shall contain a provision to the effect that the
authority, in its discretion, may reject any or all bids made in
pursuance of such advertisements, and in the event of such rejection,
the authority is authorized to negotiate a private or public sale or
readvertise for bids in the form and manner above described as many
times as, in its judgment, may be necessary to effect a satisfactory
sale.
(ii) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (i) of this
subparagraph, whenever in the judgment of the authority the interest of
the authority will be served thereby, the members of the authority, on
the written recommendation of the executive director, may authorize the
sale of such bonds at private or public sale on a negotiated basis or on
either a competitive or negotiated basis. The authority shall set
guidelines governing the terms and conditions of any such private or
public sales.
(2) The private or public bond sale guidelines set by the authority
shall include, but not be limited to, a requirement that where the
interests of the state will be served by a private or public sale of
bonds, the authority shall select underwriters for private or public
bond sales conducted pursuant to a request for proposal process
undertaken at least once annually and consideration of proposals from
qualified underwriters taking into account, among other things,
qualifications of underwriters as to experience, their ability to
structure and sell authority bond issues, anticipated costs to the
authority, the prior experience of the authority with the firm, and, if
any, the capitalization of such firms.
(3) The authority shall have the power from time to time to amend such
private or public bond sale guidelines in accordance with the provisions
of this section.
(4) No such private or public bond sale on a negotiated basis shall be
conducted by the authority without prior approval of the comptroller.
(5) The authority shall annually prepare and approve a bond sale
report which shall include the private or public bond sale guidelines as
specified in subparagraph two of this paragraph, amendments to such
guidelines since the last private or public bond sale report, an
explanation of the bond sale guidelines and amendments, and the results
of any sale of bonds conducted during the fiscal year. Such bond sale
report may be a part of any other annual report that the authority is
required to make.
(6) (i) The authority shall annually submit its bond sale report to
the comptroller and copies thereof to the senate finance committee and
the assembly ways and means committee.
(ii) The authority shall make available to the public copies of its
bond sale report upon reasonable request therefor.
(7) Nothing contained in this paragraph shall be deemed to alter,
affect the validity of, modify the terms of or impair any contract or
agreement made or entered into in violation of, or without compliance
with, the provisions of this section.
(e) The state shall, in addition to any other moneys appropriated and
made available for the support of the state university of New York,
annually appropriate and pay to the state university construction fund
an amount equal to the aggregate of all annual rentals and other
payments due to the dormitory authority from the state university
construction fund on account of state university educational facilities,
which rentals and other payments are payable by the fund pursuant to any
lease, sublease or other agreement entered into between the dormitory
authority and the state university construction fund on or after July
first, nineteen hundred eighty-eight, for the year commencing April
first immediately succeeding the filing of the report required to be
submitted by the state university construction fund pursuant to
subdivision two of section three hundred eighty-two of the education
law. Such amount shall be paid to the state university construction fund
as follows:
(1) on or before the fifteenth day of September of the fiscal year of
the state, the amount required to be paid by the state university
construction fund on account of state university educational facilities
under any such lease, sublease or other agreement on or before the tenth
day of October of such state fiscal year;
(2) no later than three business days prior to the tenth day of April
of the fiscal year of the state, the amount required to be paid by the
state university construction fund on account of state university
educational facilities under any such lease, sublease or other agreement
on or before the tenth day of April of such state fiscal year; and
(3) on such day or days as shall be prescribed under any such lease,
sublease, or other agreement, the amount required to be paid by the
state university construction fund for the purpose of making payments
under any interest rate exchange or similar agreements entered into
pursuant to article five-D of the state finance law for state university
educational facilities.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the state comptroller
shall annually encumber that portion of the amount appropriated for
payment to the state university construction fund equal to the amount
required to be paid pursuant to subparagraphs two and three of this
paragraph in the fiscal year following the year in which the
appropriation is made pursuant to any lease, sublease or other agreement
between the fund, the authority and the state university of New York
with respect to authority bonds issued or interest rate exchange and
similar agreements entered into for state university educational
facilities, before the end of the fiscal year in which the appropriation
is made. The amount so encumbered shall be payable to the fund pursuant
to subparagraphs two and three of this paragraph, in the manner
prescribed by law.
In the event of the failure of the state to pay the state university
construction fund when due pursuant to this subdivision all or part of
such amounts, the state university construction fund shall forthwith
make and deliver to the state comptroller a certificate stating the
amount of the payment required to have been made by the state, the
amount paid by the state and the amount remaining unpaid by the state.
The state comptroller, after giving written notice to the director of
the budget, shall pay to the state university construction fund the
amount set forth in such certificate as remaining unpaid, which amount
shall be paid from any moneys appropriated by the state for or on
account of the operating costs of the state university of New York and
not yet paid. The amount required to be paid by the state comptroller
pursuant to this subdivision shall be paid to the state university
construction fund as soon as practicable after receipt of the
certificate of the state university construction fund and notice to the
director of the budget is given, whether or not the moneys from which
such payment is to be made are then due and payable to the state
university.
(f) The amount of state appropriations payable to the state university
of New York from which the state comptroller has made a payment pursuant
to this subdivision shall be reduced by the amount so paid to the state
university construction fund, notwithstanding the amount appropriated
and apportioned by the state to the state university of New York, and
the state shall not be obligated to make and the state university of New
York shall not be entitled to receive any additional apportionment or
payment of state moneys.
(g) The amount of money required to be paid pursuant to this
subdivision shall be determined from the report required to be submitted
by the state university construction fund pursuant to subdivision two of
section three hundred eighty-two of the education law. Nothing contained
in this subdivision shall be construed to create an obligation upon the
state to appropriate moneys for or on account of the operating costs of
state university educational facilities, to preclude the state from
reducing the amount of moneys appropriated or level of support provided
for the operating costs of the state university of New York from the
amount appropriated or level of support provided in any prior state
fiscal year, or to preclude the state from altering or modifying the
manner in which it provides for the operating costs of the state
university of New York.

the moneys appropriated for that purpose and that such obligation is
subject to annual appropriations by the legislature.

employees' retirement system and the New York state and local police and
fire retirement system, to be a party to any agreement authorized
pursuant to paragraph (a) of this subdivision or, in accordance with the

otherwise made payable by the federal government, any agency thereof,
the state government, any agency thereof, a political subdivision as
defined in section one hundred of the general municipal law, any social
service district in the state of New York or by any other governmental
entity in an amount sufficient to make all payments required to be made
by such entity pursuant to any necessary or useful agreements entered

so assigned and pledged to the dormitory authority or, upon the
direction of the dormitory authority, to any trustee of any dormitory
authority bond or note issued pursuant to a certificate filed with any
state or local officer by the dormitory authority pursuant to the
provisions of this subdivision.

38. a. The dormitory authority is empowered and authorized to enter
into a lease, sublease or other agreement with any school district
pursuant to which the dormitory authority may finance or refinance all
or any portion of school district capital facilities and school district
capital equipment for such school districts. Any such lease, sublease or
other agreement may provide for joint facilities pursuant to section
thirty-six hundred two of the education law pursuant to an agreement
with participating school districts as authorized in such section. Such
lease, sublease or other agreement may provide for annual or other
payments to the dormitory authority by or on behalf of the school
district. Such lease, sublease or other agreement may contain such other
terms and conditions as may be agreed upon by the parties thereto,
including, but not limited to, the establishment of reserve funds and
indemnities. A lease, sublease or other agreement entered into by a
school district with the dormitory authority pursuant to the provisions
of this section shall not be deemed to be an installment purchase
contract, contract for public work or purchase contract within the
meaning of article five-A of the general municipal law or any other law.
b. (1) Except as provided in subparagraph two of this paragraph, any
such lease, sublease, or other agreement shall not constitute or create
indebtedness of the state or a political subdivision for purposes of
article seven or eight of the state constitution or section 20.00 of the
local finance law, shall be deemed executory only to the extent of money
appropriated annually therefor by the state or political subdivision and
shall not constitute a contractual obligation in excess of the amounts
so appropriated; provided however that the total amount of unpaid
payments due under any such lease, sublease or agreement on account of
principal due on bonds issued by the authority shall be deemed to be
indebtedness within the meaning of subdivision three of paragraph a of
section 135.00 of the local finance law except to the extent that any
portion of the indebtedness, if issued by the school district, would be
excluded pursuant to section 136.00 of the local finance law.
(2) A school district shall have full power and authority to pledge
its full faith and credit for the payment of its obligations to the
dormitory authority pursuant to any lease, sublease or other agreement
entered into pursuant to this subdivision. Any such lease, sublease or
other agreement shall be authorized in the same manner as is required
for the adoption of a bond resolution by the school district under the
local finance law. The total amount of all unpaid annual payments
constituting the principal of any indebtedness for which the school
district shall have pledged its faith and credit shall be deemed to be
indebtedness of the school district within the meaning of subparagraph
(b) of subdivision three of paragraph a of section 135.00 of the local
finance law and section ten of article eight of the state constitution
and such lease, sublease or other agreement shall constitute
indebtedness for purposes of article eight of the constitution and the
local finance law.
c. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the
contrary, school districts may, subject to the requirements, if any, of
voter approval contained in the education law or any other law, transfer
title or grant any other property interests or rights to the dormitory
authority and the dormitory authority may transfer title or grant any
other real property interests to such school districts.
d. Any such lease, sublease or other agreement entered into pursuant
to this subdivision may provide that the provisions thereof shall remain
in force and effect until the bonds, notes or other obligations of the
dormitory authority are no longer outstanding, together with interest on
any unpaid installments of interest and the fees and expenses of the
dormitory authority, are fully met and discharged, and any payments to
be made by or on behalf of the school district to the dormitory
authority may be pledged to secure such bonds. Any such lease, sublease
or other agreement may provide for joint facilities pursuant to section
thirty-six hundred two of the education law through an agreement with
participating districts as authorized in such section.
e. (1) Whenever the dormitory authority issues bonds, notes or other
obligations for a school district pursuant to any lease, sublease or
other agreement, the school district is authorized to assign and pledge
to the dormitory authority a sufficient portion of any and all public
funds to be apportioned or otherwise to be made payable by the state of
New York to the school district to cover the payments required under the
lease, sublease or other agreement between the authority and the school
district. All state and local officials concerned are hereby authorized
to apportion and pay all such funds so assigned and pledged to the
dormitory authority. Such assignment and pledge by any school district
shall be irrevocable and shall continue until the date on which the
liabilities of the school district and the authority for such school
district capital facilities and school district capital equipment have
been discharged and the bonds of the authority issued therefor have been
paid or such bonds have otherwise been discharged.
(2) The total amount payable annually to the dormitory authority shall
be certified by the authority to the commissioner of education, and the
authority shall annually prepare and certify to the commissioner of
education a statement of the total amount necessary to be paid by all
school districts for the ensuing school year. The dormitory authority
may provide the commissioner of education such additional statements as
the authority deems necessary.
(3) The commissioner of education shall include in the certificate he
or she files with the state comptroller the amount to be owed by the
school district to the dormitory authority for the ensuing school year.
(4) The state comptroller shall pay to the dormitory authority and
shall deduct from any state funds to become due to any such school
district an amount equal to the amount required to be paid by such
school district to the dormitory authority as shown by the certificate
of the commissioner of education filed with the state comptroller as
required by subparagraph three of this paragraph.
(5) In the event that the amount paid to the authority pursuant to
subparagraph four of this paragraph by the state comptroller is
insufficient to meet any payment required by the school district to the
authority, any such amount still due and owing shall be paid directly to
the authority by the school district pursuant to any lease, sublease or
other agreement between the authority and the school district.

39. The dormitory authority shall not issue its obligations for a
school district pursuant to subdivision thirty-eight of this section to
refund or refinance all or any portion of any outstanding indebtedness
of such school district except: (i) to refund dormitory authority
obligations previously issued for such school district; or (ii) to
refund or refinance all or any portion of any outstanding indebtedness
issued by a school district prior to December first, two thousand one,
or prior to thirty days after the effective date of this subdivision,
whichever is later, for the purpose of financing facilities which were
eligible for building aid pursuant to section thirty-six hundred two of
the education law and for which the approved expenditures for debt
service payable in any year are subsequently reduced; or (iii) to refund
or refinance all or any portion of any outstanding indebtedness issued
by a school district prior to December first, two thousand one or prior
to thirty days after the effective date of this subdivision whichever is
later provided that present value of the total payments to become due to
the authority from the school district on account of principal and
interest are less than the present value of the principal and interest
payments to become due on the bonds to be refunded with such present
value savings to be computed as provided in subparagraph (a) of
subdivision two of paragraph b of section 90.10 of the local finance
law; or (iv) to refinance all or any portion of any bond anticipation
notes of a school district issued to finance a school construction
project. In the event that the dormitory authority issues its
obligations on behalf of a school district as provided in this
subdivision: (i) no lease, sublease or other agreement entered into by
the school district pursuant to this subdivision shall, notwithstanding
any other provision of law to the contrary, be subject to the approval
of voters of the school district and (ii) the proceeds of any refunding
bonds issued by the authority, including any interest earnings thereon,
shall be held in trust under the terms of an escrow agreement for the
benefit of the holders of such refunded obligations in an amount
sufficient to provide for the payment of the principal, redemption price
and interest due on the refunded obligations of the school district to
their stated maturities or, if such bonds are to be called, to the call
date.

40. a. Any lease, sublease or other agreement by and between the
dormitory authority and any residential institution for children shall,
in addition to any other provisions deemed necessary by the dormitory
authority, contain the following:
(1) a requirement that the residential institution for children
establish an account with a bank or trust company acceptable to the
dormitory authority into which the residential institution for children
shall deposit, or cause to be deposited, all amounts received by such
residential institution for children from any school district, social
service district or any other payor on account of the residential
services provided by such residential institution for children. The
residential institution for children shall grant to the dormitory
authority a security interest in such account and the moneys on deposit
therein shall be subject to withdrawal by the residential institution
for children only after the payment of amounts then due to the dormitory
authority as provided in such lease, sublease or other agreement;
(2) a requirement that the residential institution for children grant
to the dormitory authority either a mortgage on the real property used
by the residential institution for children to provide residential
services or such other interest in real property as is acceptable to the
dormitory authority;
(3) a requirement that the residential institution for children
continue to operate a residential program for foster children and/or
children placed by the committee on special education of a school
district pursuant to contracts with social services districts or school
districts for the term of the lease, sublease or other agreement and in
the event such residential institution for children fails to do so,
provide for the transfer and operation of the residential facilities to
a replacement not-for-profit operator that is qualified to provide such
services and that has assumed the obligations of such residential
institution for children pursuant to such agreement;
(4) a requirement that the residential institution for children
include in each of its contracts with a social service district, school
district or any other payor a provision requiring that the residential
institution for children will deposit, or cause to be deposited, all of
its maintenance rate payments from such social service district, school
district or other payor into the separate account required by
subparagraph one of this paragraph. In the event of the failure of the
applicable social services district or school district to make a
maintenance rate payment to the residential institution for children for
residential care provided to a child in the residential institution for
children, the state comptroller shall withhold state reimbursement to
the applicable social services district or school district in an amount
equal to the unpaid obligation for the capital financing add-on rate and
pay over such sum to the dormitory authority or its trustee upon
certification of the commissioner of the office of children and family
services or the state education department, as applicable; and
(5) a requirement that the residential institution for children pay to
the dormitory authority the amount required to pay the principal of and
interest on obligations of the dormitory authority issued in relation to
providing such facilities and all incidental expenses of the dormitory
authority incurred in relation thereto.
b. The dormitory authority shall not issue any bonds or notes in
excess of thirty million dollars for the purpose of financing the costs
related to residential institutions for children as defined in
subdivision forty-four of section sixteen hundred seventy-six of this
title. In calculating the amount of bonds or notes outstanding pursuant
to this subdivision, the principal amount of bonds or notes issued to
fund one or more debt service reserve funds, the principal amount of
bonds or notes issued to pay the costs of issuance of such bonds, and
the principal amount of bonds or notes issued to refund or otherwise
repay such bonds and bonds or notes previously issued shall be excluded
therefrom. Except for purposes of complying with the internal revenue
code, any interest income earned on bond proceeds shall only be used to
pay debt service on such bonds or notes.
