Any bonds, bond anticipation notes or other notes or obligations may be additionally secured by a pledge of any grant, subsidy or contribution from the United States of America or an agency or instrumentality thereof or the State or any agency, instrumentality or political subdivision thereof, or any person, firm or corporation or a pledge of any income or revenues, funds or moneys of the redevelopment entity from any source whatsoever.

c. Whether or not the bonds, bond anticipation notes and other notes and obligations issued pursuant to this act are of such form and character as to be negotiable instruments under the terms of Title 12A, Commercial Transactions, New Jersey Statutes, such bonds, bond anticipation notes and other notes and obligations and any coupon thereof are hereby made negotiable instruments within the meaning of and for all the purposes of Title 12A, subject only to the provisions of the bonds and notes for registration.

d. Bonds, bond anticipation notes and other notes and obligations of a redevelopment entity issued under the provisions of this act shall not be in any way a debt or liability of the State or of any political subdivision thereof other than the redevelopment entity and shall not create or constitute any indebtedness, liability or obligation of the State or of any political subdivision, nor be or constitute a pledge of the faith and credit of the State or of any political subdivision; but all such bonds, bond anticipation notes and other notes and obligations, unless funded or refunded by bonds, bond anticipation notes or other notes or obligations of the redevelopment entity shall be payable from revenues or funds pledged or available for their payment as authorized in this act. Each bond, bond anticipation note or other note or obligation shall contain on its face a statement to the effect that the redevelopment entity is obligated to pay the principal thereof or the interest thereon only from the revenues or funds of the redevelopment entity and that neither the State nor any political subdivision thereof is obligated to pay such principal or interest, and that neither the faith and credit nor the taxing power of the State or any political subdivision thereof is pledged to the payment of the principal of or the interest on such bonds, bond anticipation notes or other notes or obligations.
