ORS 328.326¹
State guaranty of school bonds allowed

(1)(a) The State Treasurer may, by issuing a certificate of qualification to a school district, pledge the full faith and credit and taxing power of the state to guarantee full and timely payment of the principal of, either at the stated maturity or by any advancement of maturity pursuant to a mandatory sinking fund payment, and interest on school bonds as such payments shall become due, except that in the event of any acceleration of the due date of such principal by reason of mandatory or optional redemption or acceleration resulting from default or otherwise, other than any advancement of maturity pursuant to a mandatory sinking fund payment, the payments guaranteed shall be made in such amounts and at such times as such payments of principal would have been due had there not been any such acceleration.

(b) The state guaranty shall not extend to the payment of any redemption premium.

(c) Reference to ORS 328.321 (Definitions for ORS 328.321 to 328.356) to 328.356 (State Treasurer subject to provisions regarding issuance of general obligation bonds) by its title on the face of any school bond for which the State Treasurer has issued a certificate of qualification that is effective as of the date of the issuance of the school bond conclusively establishes the state guaranty.

(2) Any school bond that has been refunded and was originally issued with a state guaranty will no longer have the benefit of the state guaranty. For purposes of this subsection, a school bond has been refunded if proceeds are deposited irrevocably in escrow to defease the applicable school bond.

(3) Only school bonds issued under a valid certificate after December 3, 1998, may be eligible for the state guaranty. [1997 c.614 §3; 1999 c.251 §2]
