BY REQUEST OF THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND CONSERVATION
AN ACT INCREASING TO $20 MILLION THE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS TO MAKE LOANS TO INDIVIDUALS AND WATER ASSOCIATIONS UNDER THE RENEWABLE RESOURCE GRANT AND LOAN PROGRAM; AUTHORIZING THE CREATION OF A STATE DEBT; AMENDING SECTION 85-1-624, MCA; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MONTANA:
Section 1. Section 85-1-624, MCA, is amended to read:
"85-1-624. Authorization of bonds. The board of examiners is authorized to issue and sell general obligation
renewable resource bonds for the renewable resource grant and loan program created under Title 85, chapter 1, part 6, in
accordance with the terms and conditions and in the manner provided in 85-1-617 from time to time and in amounts that,
taking into consideration the principal amount of any renewable resource bonds then outstanding, will not cause the total
aggregate principal amount of renewable resource bonds outstanding at any time to exceed
$10 $20 million."
