18A:72A-44. Lease agreements to finance acquisition of higher education equipment
7. The authority may enter into a lease agreement with a public or private institution of higher education to finance the acquisition of higher education equipment by the institution and which provides for the lease of the equipment by the authority to the institution. The higher education equipment shall have a useful life equal to or greater than the term of the bonds issued to finance the purchase of the equipment. During the period of the lease, the authority shall hold title to the equipment. At such time as the liabilities of the authority incurred for the purchase of the higher education equipment have been met and the bonds of the authority issued therefor have been paid, or such liabilities and bonds have otherwise been discharged, the authority shall transfer title to the higher education equipment to the institution to which the equipment is leased. However, if at any time prior thereto the institution ceases to operate, then title shall vest in the authority.
