§1434. Issuance, execution, and transfer of fully registered securities

A. Notwithstanding any other laws to the contrary, public entities may issue securities in fully registered form and provide for their execution, registration, and transfer in accordance with the terms and conditions prescribed by the issuing resolution.

B. Without regard to any other provision of law relating to the signing of securities, including, but not by way of limitation, R.S. 39:473, at the time of their original issuance all securities in fully registered form may be signed with facsimile signatures if provision is also made for a manual authenticating signature by a designated bank or other financial institution or person; however, if no such provision is made for an authenticating signature, all such securities shall be signed with a manual signature of an officer of the issuing entity designated in the issuing resolution. After the original issuance of securities in fully registered form all subsequent transfers thereof need not bear manually subscribed signatures or endorsements.

C. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no signature or endorsement by the issuing entity or any other person or state official shall be required upon original issuance or subsequent transfer in the event that a book entry system or similar system is to be utilized for registration, transfer, or exchange of securities in fully registered form in accordance with the issuing resolution.
