(3)

Tax lien collateralized securities shall be authorized by a resolution or resolutions of the agency adopted as provided by this title; provided, however, that any such resolution authorizing the issuance of such securities may delegate to an officer of the agency the power to issue such securities from time to time and to fix the details of any such issues of tax lien collateralized securities by an appropriate certificate of such authorized officer.

Any tax lien collateralized security of the agency or its tax lien entity may be sold at public or private sale and from time to time upon such terms and at such prices as may be determined by the agency, and the agency may pay all expenses, premiums and commissions which it may deem necessary or advantageous in connection with the issuance and sale thereof.

(6)

Whether or not tax lien collateralized securities are of such form and character as to be negotiable instruments under the terms of the uniform commercial code, tax lien collateralized securities are hereby made negotiable instruments within the meaning of and for all the purposes of the uniform commercial code, subject only to the provisions of the tax lien collateralized securities for registration.

(7)

Any resolution or resolutions authorizing any tax lien collateralized securities of the agency or of its tax lien entity may contain provisions which may be a part of the contract with the holders of securities, as to:

(9)

It is the intention of the legislature that any pledge of tax liens, earnings, revenues, other moneys or assets made by the agency or its tax lien entity shall be valid and binding from the time when the pledge is made; that the tax liens, earnings, revenues, other moneys or assets so pledged and thereafter received by the agency or its tax lien entity shall immediately be subject to the lien of such pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and that the lien of any such pledge shall be valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract or otherwise against the agency or its tax lien entity irrespective of whether such parties have notice thereof. Neither the resolution nor any other instrument by which a pledge is created need be recorded.
