LA Rev Stat § 39:1465 What's This?

§1465. Sale of refunding bonds; interest rate

The refunding bonds shall be sold in such manner, at either public or nonpublic sale, as may be determined by the State Bond Commission, for such price and bearing interest at such rate or rates as will create for the refunding bonds an effective interest rate which is lower than that of the refunded bonds. No refunding bonds authorized hereunder shall be delivered unless the state treasurer has certified that the effective interest rate on the refunding bonds is a lower effective interest rate than the effective interest rate on the refunded bonds. This certification shall be conclusive. In computing the effective interest rate for the purposes of this Act, there shall be taken into consideration all costs and expenses of issuance of the refunding bonds, including fees for bond counsel and other consultants and, to the extent paid from sources other than the proceeds of such refunding bonds, redemption premiums, if any, on the refunded bonds.
