18A:24-86. Legislative findings
The Legislature finds and declares that:
a. Provision of adequately equipped, sanitary and secure physical facilities is an integral part of the maintenance of a thorough and efficient system of free public education;
b. Maintenance of strong financial credit in New Jersey school districts is essential in providing necessary physical facilities at minimum cost, for the children of this State between the ages of 5 and 18 years;
c. While the credit status of New Jersey's school districts is sound, it can be strengthened by a pledge of State school aid to guarantee debt service payments on qualified bonds;
d. Such a pledge of State school aid should expand the market for and lower the interest costs on qualified bonds issued pursuant to the terms of this act, thus substantially reducing the costs of participating school districts and making more efficient use of the funds available for the provision of a thorough and efficient education.
