6. a. The board may sell by negotiation or auction, exchange, or otherwise convey any development potential that is purchased or otherwise acquired pursuant to the provisions of this act, after notice thereof placed in the New Jersey Register and in one newspaper of general circulation in the area affected by the conveyance. All sales, exchanges, or conveyances shall be made prior to the expiration of the bank. The provisions of any other law to the contrary notwithstanding, no such sale, exchange, or conveyance shall be subject to approval of the State House Commission or the General Services Administration in the Department of the Treasury.
b. When the board sells, exchanges, or otherwise conveys development potential, it shall remit 20% of the proceeds to the local government unit that participated in its acquisition unless the local government unit obtained its interest in the development potential by donation and retain the remaining balance.
c. When the board sells, exchanges, otherwise conveys, purchases or otherwise acquires development potential, it shall do so in a manner that shall not substantially impair the private sale and transfer thereof. The board may convey development potential without remuneration for use in projects that satisfy a compelling public purpose only by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of its members and approval by the local government unit that provided 20% of the cost of the acquisition of the development potential.
d. Governmental entities that provide municipal or county funding to finance the purchase of development potential prior to the operation of the State TDR Bank shall receive priority consideration by the State TDR Bank in the purchase of development potential.
e. Prior to the sale, exchange or conveyance of any development potential purchased or otherwise acquired using moneys derived from bonds authorized by the "Farmland Preservation Bond Act of 1981," P.L.1981, c.276, as amended by P.L.1987, c.240 or the "Open Space Preservation Bond Act of 1989," P.L.1989 c.183, the State TDR Bank shall obtain a determination from the State Treasurer that such sale, exchange or conveyance will not adversely affect the tax-exempt status of such bonds.
