REVISED MUNICIPAL FINANCE ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 34 of 2001
141.2413 Anticipation of long-term municipal security proceeds; issuance of short-term municipal security; authorization of principal, interest, and redemption premiums; limitation on principal amount; use of proceeds.
(1) A municipality may by resolution of its governing body, and without a vote of its electors, issue a short-term municipal security in anticipation of the proceeds of a long-term municipal security it proposes to issue, or that will be issued in its behalf. However, if required by law, issuance of the long-term municipal security has been approved by the electors of the municipality or, if required by law, a notice of intent to issue the long-term municipal security or enter into a contract has been published and all rights of referendum relating to the notice have expired. The municipality shall pledge for the payment of the principal, interest, and redemption premiums, if any, on the short-term municipal security from 1 or more of the sources and on the terms described in section 315 and from any of the additional sources identified in subsection (2).
(2) The municipality, in determining to issue a short-term municipal security under this section, may authorize principal, interest, and redemption premiums, if any, on the short-term municipal security to be payable from and secured by a pledge of the proceeds of the long-term municipal security issued to refund the short-term municipal security.
(3) The principal amount of a short-term municipal security issued in anticipation of the issuance of long-term municipal securities shall not exceed 50% of the principal amount of the proposed long-term municipal security. The municipality shall in the resolution authorizing the short-term municipal security declare the necessity of the short-term municipal security and state its purpose, the principal amount of the short-term municipal security to be issued, and an estimated principal payment schedule for and an estimated or maximum average annual interest rate on the short-term municipal security. The issuance and delivery of the short-term municipal security shall be conclusive as to the existence of the facts entitling the short-term municipal security to be issued in the principal amount of the short-term municipal security and shall not be subject to attack in any proceeding. A short-term municipal security shall mature not more than the earlier of 3 years from the date of issuance or 60 days after the expected date of issuance of the long-term municipal security in anticipation of which it is issued and may bear no interest or interest at a fixed or variable rate or rates of interest per annum, subject to the limitations in section 305.
(4) The proceeds of a short-term municipal security issued under this section shall be used only for the purpose to which the proceeds of the long-term municipal security may be applied, the costs of issuance of the short-term municipal security and to the payment of principal and interest on the short-term municipal security.
