§1408. Transfer of functions from State Bond and Tax Board

A. By authority of Section 32 of Article III of the Constitution of 1921, the powers, duties and functions of the State Bond and Tax Board as provided in R.S. 47:1801-1808 are hereby transferred to and vested in the State Bond Commission.

B. Under the transfer herein provided for, all pending and unfinished business of the State Bond and Tax Board as of the effective date of this section shall be taken over and completed by the State Bond Commission. The State Bond Commission shall be the successor in every way to the State Bond and Tax Board and every act done by the State Bond Commission in the exercise of the powers, duties and functions of the State Bond and Tax Board herein transferred shall be deemed to have the same force and effect under any provisions of the constitution and laws in effect on the effective date of this section as if done by the State Bond and Tax Board.

C. Whenever the State Bond and Tax Board is referred to or designated by the constitution or by any law or contract or other document, such reference or designation hereafter shall be deemed to be to the State Bond Commission; provided, however, that the provisions of this section are in no way intended to extend to nor shall they be construed in any manner which shall impair any contractual obligations of the State Bond and Tax Board or impair any contractual obligation, bonding or taxing authority heretofore approved by the State Bond and Tax Board.

D. All books, papers, records, money and other property heretofore possessed, controlled or used by the State Bond and Tax Board in the exercise of the functions hereby transferred and all employees heretofore engaged in the performance of such functions are hereby transferred to the State Bond Commission.

E. The transfer provided for in this Act shall take effect and be operative on January 1, 1973 and any appropriation made at this 1972 regular session of the legislature or any funds otherwise made available for the State Bond and Tax Board shall be transferred to and be used by the State Bond Commission in carrying out the functions herein transferred to it.
