Provisions Applicable to all Refunding Bonds of all Local Agencies
(a) In issuing refunding bonds to honor warrants to school districts, community college districts, and other local agencies in settlement of bankruptcy, the Board of Supervisors of Orange County, in the resolution authorizing the issuance of refunding bonds, may provide that Orange County elects to guarantee payment of the refunding bonds in accordance with the following:
(1) If Orange County elects to participate under this section, it shall provide notice to the Controller of that election, which notice shall include a schedule for the repayment of principal and interest on the bonds, and identify a refunding bond trustee appointed by Orange County for the purposes of this section. The notice may be provided at the time of issuance of the refunding bonds or at a later date.
(2) In the event that, for any reason, the funds available for the payment of principal and interest of the bonds will not be sufficient for that purpose at the time payment on principal, interest, or both, is required as to any one or more of those bonds, Orange County shall so notify the trustee. The trustee shall immediately communicate that information to the affected bondholders and to the Controller.
(3) When the Controller receives notice from the trustee as described in paragraph (2) that the funds made available pursuant to this article for the payment of principal and interest of the bonds is not sufficient for that purpose at the time payment on principal, interest, or both, is required as to any one or more of those bonds, the Controller shall make an apportionment to the trustee in the amount of that required payment for the purpose of making that payment. The Controller shall make that payment only from moneys credited to the Motor Vehicle License Fee Account in the Transportation Tax Fund to which Orange County is entitled at that time under Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 11001) of Part 5 of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, and shall thereupon reduce, by the amount of the payment, the subsequent allocation or allocations to which Orange County would otherwise be entitled under that chapter.
(4) As an alternate to the procedure set forth in paragraphs (2) and (3), Orange County may specify in the notice provided to the Controller pursuant to paragraph (1) a schedule of payments to be made on specified dates to the trustee, and the Controller shall, subject to the limitation in the second sentence of paragraph (3), make apportionments to the trustee in the amount of the required payments on the specified dates.
(b) This section shall not be construed to obligate the State of California to make any payment to Orange County from the Motor Vehicle License Fee Account in the Transportation Tax Fund in any amount or pursuant to any particular allocation formula, or to make any other payment to Orange County, including, but not limited to, any payment in satisfaction of any debt or liability incurred or guaranteed by Orange County in accordance with this section.
