The taxes, income, revenues, monies, payments, or receipts or agreements or contract rights so pledged and then held or thereafter received by the public entity or any fiduciary shall immediately be subject to the lien of such pledge and security interest without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and the lien of such pledge and security interest shall be first priority and valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract, or otherwise against the public entity, whether or not such parties have notice thereof.

No filing with respect to such pledge and security interest made by a public entity need be made under Chapter 9 of the Louisiana Commercial Laws, R.S. 10:9-101 et seq., for the perfection or priority of such pledge and security interest.
