Bonded Indebtedness of State

SECTION 35-8-17



   § 35-8-17  Replacement or repair of damaged

bonds or notes. –

Whenever the board is satisfied that any instrument or printed or written paper

presented to it is in fact a valid bond or note of the state but it is so

damaged that its condition is such as to hinder or prevent the owner or holder

thereof from making good delivery of the bond or note, the board may, upon

payment to it by the owner or holder thereof of such a sum as it deems

necessary to cover the actual expense involved, cause the damage to be repaired

or remedied by requiring the proper officers of the state to sign the bond or

note in place of their damaged or destroyed signatures or those of their

predecessors in office, to issue a duplicate bond or note, or to do whatever

else the board may require of them to repair or remedy the damage. But no

duplicate bond or note shall be so issued except upon the surrender of the

original bond or note, which shall thereupon be cancelled forthwith, and the

repaired or duplicate bond or note shall be treated in all respects as a valid

obligation of the state. On every repaired or duplicate bond or note the

general treasurer shall certify on the back thereof that the bond or note has

been repaired or issued under the provisions of this section and the

certification shall be conclusive proof that the bond or note has been repaired

or issued in accordance with the requirements of the board and that it is a

valid obligation of the state in accordance with its terms.
