18A:58-33.10. Approval by local finance board; endorsement
(a) A copy of the resolution of the State Board of Education referred to in section 4(a) and a copy of the proposal or ordinance referred to in section 4(b), bearing the endorsement of the Commissioner of Education as aforesaid, shall be submitted to the Local Finance Board in the Division of Local Finance for its consideration, and the Local Finance Board in considering such copy of proposal or ordinance submitted to it and before endorsing its consent thereon may require the board of education of any school district or the governing body of any municipality in such school district to adopt resolutions restricting or limiting any future proceedings therein or other matters or things deemed by the Local Finance Board to affect any estimate made or to be made by it in accordance with subsection (b) hereof, and every such resolution so adopted shall constitute a valid and binding obligation of such school district or municipality, as the case may be, running to and enforceable by, and releasable by, the Local Finance Board.
(b) Within 60 days after such submission to it, the Local Finance Board shall cause its consent to be endorsed upon such copy of any proposal or ordinance authorizing such bonds, if it shall be satisfied, and shall record by resolution, its estimates that the amounts to be expended for the education facilities to be financed pursuant to such proposal or ordinance are not unreasonable or exorbitant, and that issuance of the bonds, to be authorized by such proposal or ordinance, will not materially impair the credit of any municipality comprised within the district or substantially reduce its ability, during the ensuing 10 years, to pay punctually the principal and interest of its debts and supply essential public improvements and services, but if the Local Finance Board is not so satisfied it shall cause its disapproval to be endorsed on such copy within said period of 60 days.
