(c) For the purpose of paying principal and interest on any issues of funded indebtedness, the Treasurer with the written consent of the Governor, may designate at least two banks, one or more within the State of Alabama and one or more within the continental United States.

(d) In the event that any issues of bonded indebtedness existing, prior to the date of enactment of this section, provide by the terms of the issue an alternate means of paying principal and interest, including but not limited to the establishment of a sinking fund or advance payment, then such payment shall be made in accordance with the terms of such bond indenture.
