(a) Notwithstanding and in addition to any other provision of law permitting withdrawal of moneys from the General Fund for deposit into a special fund for the purpose of carrying out a program or project with repayment to the General Fund to come from the proceeds of the later sale of state bonds or notes, the Pooled Money Investment Board may instead make a loan from the Pooled Money Investment Account directly to any such special fund, on such terms and conditions as the board may determine, upon request made to the board by an appropriate official. Any official authorized by law to seek, authorize, or approve a withdrawal of moneys from the General Fund for these purposes may in the alternative request a loan from the board as provided in this section and execute such documents as are required by the board to obtain and repay the loan. Interest on the loan shall be determined as provided in Section 16314.

(b) The Pooled Money Investment Board may also make a loan from the Pooled Money Investment Account to any special fund for the purpose of carrying out a program or project that is authorized to be financed by issuing bonds, notes, or other evidence of indebtedness, where the special fund does not qualify under subdivision (a). Any loan shall be subject to those terms and conditions as the board shall determine and interest shall be determined as provided in Section 16314.

Any state agency or other entity of state government that has authority to issue bonds may request a loan from the Pooled Money Investment Account and execute such documents as are required by the board to obtain and repay the loan.

(c) When a loan is made pursuant to subdivision (a) or (b) to a special fund to carry out a state general obligation bond program, other than a program adopted pursuant to an initiative statute prior to August 22, 1988, or Chapter 27, 30, 48, or 49 of the Statutes of 1988, the special fund shall pay the loan interest out of the proceeds derived from bond sales. For non-self-liquidating programs adopted pursuant to an initiative statute prior to August 22, 1988, or Chapter 27, 30, 48, or 49 of the Statutes of 1988, the General Fund shall pay the loan interest.

(d) Notwithstanding Section 13340, amounts required to pay interest on loans made to non-self-liquidating general obligation bond programs are hereby continuously appropriated from the General Fund.

The Legislature hereby finds and declares that these appropriations for interest payments regarding general obligation bond programs are appropriations for debt service as defined in Section 8 of Article XIIIB of the California Constitution and therefore are exempt from the appropriations limit set by that article.

(Amended by Stats. 1988, Ch. 984, Sec. 1.)
