(2256)

Article 2. Authorization and Issuance of Debentures (1001.1-1001.9) (2257)(Text)

1001.1. Debentures may be issued by the department at such times and in such amounts not to exceed five hundred million dollars ($500,000,000) in the aggregate as the department, with the approval of the Veterans' Debenture Finance Committee, may determine. The issuance of debentures shall be authorized by a resolution of issuance adopted as in this chapter provided. (2258)

1001.2. Whenever the department determines that debentures should be issued, it shall adopt a resolution of issuance, which shall be executed for the department by the Director of Veterans Affairs. Each resolution of issuance so adopted by the department shall be submitted to the Veterans' Debenture Finance Committee, which shall consider and approve or disapprove any resolution of issuance so submitted. Upon such approval, by a resolution adopted by a majority of the members of the Veterans' Debenture Finance Committee, the resolution of issuance shall become effective and the State Treasurer shall cause the debentures authorized thereunder to be prepared in accordance with the terms of the resolution of issuance. (2259)

1001.3. Debentures shall be issued in the name of the Department of Veterans Affairs of the State of California and as the obligation of the department, but neither the principal of, nor the interest on, any debentures shall be or become a lien, charge or liability against the State of California, the department or the Veterans' Debenture Finance Committee, or against the property or funds of any of them, except to the extent of the pledge of revenues as may be provided by the resolution of issuance pursuant to which such debentures are issued. Every debenture shall contain a recital substantially as follows: "This debenture is a special obligation of the Department of Veterans Affairs of the State of California, and is not a lien, charge or liability against the State of California, or against the Department of Veterans Affairs or against the property or funds of either, except only to the extent of the pledge of revenues or part of revenues as provided in the resolution. The holder of this debenture cannot compel the exercise of the taxing power of the State of California or the forfeiture of its property to pay this debenture or the interest thereon." (2260)

1001.4. All debentures shall bear the facsimile signature of the Director of Veterans Affairs and the Deputy Director of Veterans Affairs and shall be authenticated by the trustee. The seal of the Department of Veterans Affairs shall be impressed, mechanically reproduced or imprinted by facsimile upon each debenture. The interest coupons attached to any debenture shall bear a facsimile of the signature of the Director of Veterans Affairs. In case any such official whose signature or countersignature appears on the debentures or coupons shall cease to be such official before the debentures so signed or countersigned shall have been actually executed or delivered, such signature or countersignature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes the same as if he had remained in office until the delivery of the debentures, and such debentures and coupons shall be issued and shall be as binding upon the department as though the person who signed such debentures or coupons had been such official on the date borne by the debentures or coupons and on the date of delivery. Any such debentures may be signed and sealed on behalf of the department by such person as at the actual date of execution of such debentures shall be the Director of Veterans Affairs or the Deputy Director of Veterans Affairs, as the case may be, although on such date as may be borne by such debentures any such person shall not have been such official. (2261)

1001.5. The validity of the authorization and issuance of any debentures shall not be dependent on or affected by the validity or regularity of any proceedings relating to the expenditure of the proceeds thereof. (2262)

1001.6. Reference on the face of any debentures to a resolution of issuance by its date of adoption, or the apparent date on the face thereof, shall be sufficient to incorporate all of the provisions thereof and of this chapter into the body of the debentures and their appurtenant coupons. Each taker and subsequent holder of the debentures or coupons, whether the coupons are attached to or detached from the debentures, shall have recourse to all of the provisions of the resolution of issuance and of this chapter, and shall be bound thereby.
