(2) As described in subsections (3) to (6) of this section, state agencies and the Private Activity Bond Committee may allocate and reallocate or take any additional actions that are desirable to maximize the benefits of bonding programs created or expanded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-5).
