(1) The authority may create and establish 1 or more special funds called capital reserve funds to secure notes and bonds of the authority. The authority shall pay into a capital reserve fund money appropriated and made available by this state for the purposes of the fund, the proceeds of the sale of notes or bonds to the extent provided in the resolution of the authority authorizing the issuance of the notes or bonds, and other money that is made available to the authority for the purpose of a fund from any other source. In addition to, or in lieu of, depositing money in a capital reserve fund, the authority may obtain and pledge letters of credit and, effective retroactively as of June 1, 1993, insurance policies, surety bonds, guarantees, or other security arrangements if those other security arrangements are approved by the state treasurer, for the purposes of the capital reserve fund. The amount available under letters of credit, insurance policies, surety bonds, guarantees, or other security arrangements pledged to a capital reserve fund shall be credited toward the satisfaction of a capital reserve fund requirement. All money and proceeds under letters of credit, insurance policies, surety bonds, guarantees, or other security arrangements held in a capital reserve fund, except as specifically provided, shall be used as required solely for the payment of the principal of notes or bonds of the authority secured in whole or in part by the capital reserve fund, for the purchase or redemption of notes or bonds, for the payment of interest on the notes or bonds, or for the payment of a redemption premium required to be paid when the notes or bonds are redeemed prior to maturity. However, the authority shall not use the capital reserve fund for an optional purchase or optional redemption of notes or bonds if the use would reduce the total of the money on deposit in the capital reserve fund and amounts available under a letter of credit, insurance policy, surety bond, guarantee, or other security arrangement pledged to a capital reserve fund to less than the capital reserve fund requirement established for the fund. Income or interest earned by, or increment to, a capital reserve fund from the investment of the money in the capital reserve fund may be transferred by the authority to other funds or accounts of the authority to the extent that the transfer does not reduce the total of the amount of money in a capital reserve fund and amounts available under a letter of credit, insurance policy, surety bond, guarantee, or other security arrangement pledged to the capital reserve fund below the capital reserve fund requirement for the fund.

(2) The authority shall not issue notes or bonds secured in whole or in part by a capital reserve fund if, upon the issuance of the notes or bonds, the amount in the capital reserve fund, including the amounts available under a letter of credit, insurance policy, surety bond, guarantee, or other security arrangement pledged to the capital reserve fund, would be less than the capital reserve fund requirement for the fund, unless the authority, at the time of issuance of the notes or bonds, deposits in the fund from the proceeds of the notes or bonds to be issued, or from other sources, an amount that, together with the amount then in the fund, is not less than the capital reserve fund requirement for the fund, or obtains a letter of credit, insurance policy, surety bond, guarantee, or other security arrangement in an amount that, together with the amount then in the fund, is not less than the capital reserve fund requirement for the fund. For the purposes of this section, "capital reserve fund requirement" means the amount required in the resolution of the authority authorizing the notes or bonds with respect to which the fund is established, which amount shall not exceed the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in a succeeding calendar year on the notes or bonds of the authority secured in whole or part by the fund.

(3) The authority has, before January 9, 1977, in connection with its housing development bonds issued pursuant to a bond resolution dated June 10, 1971, established within the capital reserve fund relating to housing development bonds, a capital reserve account and a capital reserve capital account. This capital reserve account constitutes a capital reserve fund under this act. Money in this capital reserve account shall secure only housing development bonds issued pursuant to the June 10, 1971 bond resolution. Unless otherwise provided by the authority, money in the capital reserve capital account shall secure all bonds and notes of the authority. In determining whether the capital reserve fund requirement established for a capital reserve fund has been met, the authority shall not include or take into account money in the capital reserve capital account.

(4) The authority has, before January 9, 1977, in connection with its insured mortgage revenue bonds issued pursuant to a bond resolution dated May 11, 1976, established a bond reserve fund. This bond reserve fund constitutes a capital reserve fund under this act.

(5) The authority may issue notes and bonds subject to the following limitations:

(a) The authority shall not have outstanding at any time bonds and notes for any of its corporate purposes in an aggregate principal amount exceeding $4,200,000,000.00, excluding all of the following:

(i) The principal amount of bonds and notes issued to refund outstanding bonds and notes.

(ii) The principal amount of bonds and notes that appreciate in principal amount, except to the extent of the principal amount of these bonds and notes payable at such time.

(iii) The principal amount of notes and bonds representing original issue discount, if any.

(b) After November 1, 2014, the limitation on the aggregate principal amount of notes and bonds provided in subdivision (a) is $3,400,000,000.00, excluding all of the following:

(i) The exclusions provided in subdivision (a)(i), (ii), and (iii).

(ii) The aggregate principal amount of bonds and notes issued on or before November 1, 2014, that is outstanding on November 1, 2014, and that exceeds $3,400,000,000.00.

(6) Subject to the limitation in subsection (5), that portion of the state ceiling to be used for qualified mortgage bonds, mortgage credit certificates, or bonds to finance qualified residential rental projects shall be allocated to the authority unless the authority elects by resolution to allow another issuer to issue qualified mortgage bonds, mortgage credit certificates, or bonds to finance qualified residential rental projects. As used in this subsection:

(a) "Mortgage credit certificate" means that term as defined in section 25 of the internal revenue code, 26 USC 25.

(b) "Qualified mortgage bond" means that term as defined in section 143 of the internal revenue code, 26 USC 143.

(c) "Qualified residential rental project" means that term as defined in section 142 of the internal revenue code, 26 USC 142.

(d) "State ceiling" means the aggregate amount of certain private activity bonds, including qualified mortgage bonds, that may be issued in any calendar year in this state pursuant to section 146 of the internal revenue code, 26 USC 146.

(7) To ensure the continued operation and solvency of the authority for the carrying out of the public purposes of this act, the authority shall accumulate in each capital reserve fund an amount equal to the capital reserve fund requirement for that fund. If at any time the capital reserve fund requirement for a capital reserve fund exceeds the amount of the capital reserve fund, the authority shall transfer to this fund from the capital reserve capital account established by the authority's June 10, 1971 bond resolution the amount necessary to restore the capital reserve fund to an amount equal to the capital reserve fund requirement. If a deficiency exists in more than 1 capital reserve fund and the amount in the capital reserve capital account is not sufficient to fully restore the capital reserve funds, the money in the capital reserve capital account shall be allocated between the deficient capital reserve funds pro rata according to the amounts of the deficiencies. If at any time the capital reserve capital account has been exhausted and the capital reserve fund requirement for a capital reserve fund exceeds the amount of the capital reserve fund, the chairperson of the authority on or before September 1 shall certify to the governor and budget director the amount, if any, necessary to restore a capital reserve fund to an amount equal to the capital reserve fund requirement. The governor and the budget director shall include in the annual budget the amount certified by the chairperson of the authority.

(8) In computing the amount of a capital reserve fund for the purposes of this section, securities in which all or a portion of the fund is invested shall be valued at par. If the securities are purchased at other than par, the securities may be valued at their cost to the authority, as adjusted by amortization of the discount or premium paid upon purchase of the securities on a pro rata basis to the maturity date of the securities.

(9) To the extent possible and consistent with sound fiscal management and good housing development planning, the authority shall make full use of available federal housing subsidy programs. The authority shall recommend programs and legislation to better maintain and improve existing housing stock.

(10) The authority shall require that not less than 15% of the multifamily dwelling units financed by mortgage loans from the authority in a calendar year under federal government subsidy programs, subject to applicable federal regulations, be offered on a priority basis to low income families and persons receiving their primary incomes from social security programs or state and federal public assistance programs.
