Amounts held with a trustee shall be invested by the trustee at the direction of the State Treasurer. Interest earned on any investments held by a trustee as security for a financing agreement may, at the option of the director, be credited to the accounts held by the trustee and applied in payment of sums due under a financing agreement.

      (b) Enter into credit enhancement agreements for financing agreements or certificates of participation, provided that such credit enhancement agreements shall be payable solely from available funds and amounts received from the exercise of property rights granted under such financing agreements.

      (d) Use a single financing agreement to finance property to be used by multiple state agencies.

      (e) Subject to ORS 283.087 (2), grant leases of real property with a trustee or lender. Such leases may be for a term which ends on the date on which all amounts due under a financing agreement have been paid or provision for payment has been made, or 10 years after the last scheduled payment under a financing agreement, whichever is later. Such leases may grant the trustee or lender the right to evict the state and exclude it from possession of the real property for the term of the lease if the state fails to pay when due the amounts scheduled to be paid under a financing agreement or otherwise defaults under a financing agreement. Upon default, the trustee or lender may sublease the land to third parties and apply any rentals toward payments scheduled to be made under a financing agreement.

      (f) Subject to ORS 283.087 (2), grant security interests in personal property to trustees or lenders. Such security interests shall attach and be perfected on the date the state takes possession of the personal property, or the date the lender advances money under a financing agreement, whichever is later. A security interest authorized by this section shall have priority over all other liens and claims. Upon default, the secured party shall have the rights and remedies available to a secured party under ORS chapter 79 for a first, perfected security interest in goods and fixtures. No later than 10 days after a security interest authorized by this section attaches, the state shall cause a financing statement for the security interest to be filed with the Secretary of State in the same manner as financing statements are filed for goods; however, failure to file such a statement shall not affect the perfection of the security interest.

      (g) Pledge for the benefit of trustees and lenders any amounts which are deposited with a trustee in accordance with a financing agreement. The pledge shall be valid and binding from the time it is made, the amounts so pledged shall immediately be subject to the lien of the pledge without filing, physical delivery or other act, and the lien of the pledge shall be superior to all other claims and liens of any kind whatsoever.

      (h) Bill any state agency that benefits from a financing agreement for an appropriate share of the financing costs on a monthly or other periodic basis, and deposit payments received in connection with the billings with a trustee as security for a financing agreement. Any state agency receiving such a bill shall pay the amounts billed from the first amounts legally available to it. The director shall allocate in appropriate shares the financing costs of a financing agreement entered into for the purpose described in ORS 283.085 (4)(a)(D) among all state agencies based on their payroll costs.

      (i) Purchase fire and extended coverage or other casualty insurance for property which is acquired or refinanced with proceeds of a financing agreement, assign the proceeds thereof to a lender or trustee to the extent of their interest, and covenant to maintain such insurance while the financing agreement is unpaid, so long as available funds are sufficient to purchase such insurance.

      (2) As used in this section:

      (a) “Financing costs” means the costs or expenses that the State Treasurer or the Director of the Oregon Department of Administrative Services determines are necessary or desirable in connection with entering into financing agreements and maintaining the certificate of participation program, including but not limited to paying:

The Oregon Department of Administrative Services shall include in the Governor’s budget request to the Legislative Assembly for each fiscal period amounts sufficient to permit the payment of all amounts which will be due on unpaid financing agreements during that fiscal period. [1989 c.1032 §4]

 

      Note: See note under 283.085.

 

      283.092 Effect of financing agreement on tax status. A lease or financing agreement authorized by ORS 283.085 to 283.092 shall not cause property to be subject to property taxation and shall be disregarded in determining whether property is exempt from taxation under ORS chapter 307. [1989 c.1032 §5; 2007 c.783 §96]
