18A:58-33.11. Change in maturity schedule for bonds; resolution; approval; endorsement
(a) If the board of education of a school district shall determine by resolution that the maturity schedule for bonds entitled to the benefits of this act, other than the maturity schedule approved by the State Board of Education by resolution pursuant to section 4(a) of this act, is in the best interest of said school district, it may make application to the State Board of Education setting forth such belief and the grounds therefor and requesting approval of a schedule of maturities for such bonds set forth in the application. If the State Board of Education, by resolution, shall find that the schedule of maturities set forth in the application is in the best interest of the school district and the State, it shall cause its approval to be endorsed thereon and shall forward said application to the Local Finance Board.
(b) Within 60 days after submission to the Local Finance Board of an application in accordance with section 6(a) of this act, it shall cause its approval to be endorsed thereon if it shall be satisfied and shall record by resolution its findings that the belief set forth in such application is well founded and that issuance of the bonds mentioned and described in such application would not materially impair the credit of any municipality comprised within the school 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.
