27:25A-14. Actions of authority require prior approval of State
14. No resolution or other action of the authority providing for the issuance of bonds, notes, refunding bonds or other obligations or for the fixing, revising or adjusting of tolls, fares or charges for the use of any project or parts or sections thereof shall be adopted or otherwise made effective by the authority without the prior approval in writing of the Governor and either the State Treasurer or the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting in the Department of the Treasury.
A true copy of the minutes of every meeting of the authority shall be forthwith delivered by and under the certification of the secretary thereof to the Governor. No action taken at that meeting by the authority shall have force or effect until the earlier of 15 days, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays, after the copy of the minutes shall have been so delivered, or the approval thereof by the Governor. If, in the 15-day period, the Governor returns the copy of the minutes with veto of any action taken by the authority or any member thereof at that meeting, the action shall be null and of no effect. The minutes of any meeting at which the authority proposes or approves its operating or capital outlay budget shall include a copy of that budget.
The powers conferred by this section, upon the Governor, the State Treasurer and the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting in the Department of the Treasury shall be exercised with due regard for the rights of the holders of bonds of the authority or other entity, if applicable, at any time outstanding, and nothing in, or done pursuant to, this section shall in any way limit, restrict or alter the obligation or powers of the authority, or any representative or officer of the authority, to carry out and perform in every detail each and every covenant, agreement or contract at any time made or entered into by or on behalf of the authority with respect to its bonds or for the benefit, protection or security of the holders thereof.
