MS Code § 17-11-39 (2016) What's This?

Revenue bonds shall bear date or dates, be in such denomination or denominations, bear interest at such rate or rates, be payable at such place or places within or without the State of Mississippi, mature at such time or times and upon such terms, with or without premium, bear such registration privileges and be substantially in such form, all as shall be determined by resolution of the governing body or bodies issuing such bonds. No bond shall bear more than one rate of interest. Each bond shall bear interest from its date to its stated maturity date at the interest rate specified in the bid. All bonds of the same maturity shall bear the same rate of interest from date to maturity. All interest accruing on such bonds so issued shall be payable semiannually or annually, except that the first interest coupon attached to any such bond may be for any period not exceeding one year.

No interest payment shall be evidenced by more than one coupon and neither cancelled nor supplemental coupons shall be permitted. The lowest interest rate specified for any bonds issued shall not be less than seventy percent (70%) of the highest interest rate specified for the same bond issue. Such bonds shall be sold in such manner and upon such terms as the governing body or bodies shall determine. Such bonds shall not bear a greater overall maximum interest rate to maturity than eight percent (8%) per annum, and the interest rate of any one maturity shall not exceed eight percent (8%) per annum. Each interest rate specified in any bid must be in multiples of one-eighth of one percent ( 1/8 of 1%) or in multiples of one-tenth of one percent (1/10 of 1%).

Such bonds shall mature in annual installments beginning not more than five years from the date thereof and extending not more than thirty-five years from the date thereof.

The revenue bonds issued under the provisions of this section shall be payable solely out of the revenues to accrue from the operation of the approved regional project, and the full faith and credit of the district, county or city shall not be pledged therefor, nor shall any ad valorem tax be levied therefor.
