All such bonds shall bear interest at not more than the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, and may be sold by the Board or its successor in such manner as they consider to be best in the public interest. Such bonds shall be sold at such price that the interest cost of the proceeds therefrom will not exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, based on the average maturity of such bonds and computed according to standard tables of bond values. Such bonds shall be payable solely from the revenues to be derived from the operation of any such building or buildings or structures acquired, completed, remodeled, constructed or equipped in whole or in part with the proceeds of such bonds and shall be secured by a pledge of the revenues of any such building or buildings or structures so acquired, completed, remodeled, constructed or equipped as herein provided.

    Such bonds may bear such date or dates and may mature at such time or times not exceeding 40 years from their date or dates, may be in such form, carry such registration privileges, may be payable at such place or places, may be subject to such terms of redemption prior to maturity with or without premium if so stated on the face of the bonds, and may contain such terms and covenants all as may be provided by resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds.
    Such bonds shall be executed by such officers of the Board or its successor as shall be designated by the Board or its successor and countersigned by the Treasurer of the State of Illinois. A facsimile of the signatures of the officers of the Board or its successor who are designated to execute such bonds, a facsimile of the signature of the Treasurer of the State of Illinois, and a facsimile of the seal of the Board or its successor, may be imprinted, engraved or otherwise reproduced on such bonds and on the interest coupons attached thereto. Any bonds bearing the signature or facsimile of officers in office at the date of signing thereof are valid and binding for all purposes, notwithstanding that before delivery thereof any or all such persons whose signatures or facsimiles appear thereon have ceased to be such officers.
    Each such bond shall state upon its face that it is payable solely from the revenues derived from the operation of the building or buildings or structures constructed, remodeled, completed or equipped with the proceeds of the sale of such bonds, and shall state upon its face that it does not constitute an obligation of the State of Illinois within the meaning or application of any constitutional or statutory limitation or provision.

Nothing contained in this Section may be construed as relieving any person, firm or corporation from any duty of exercising reasonable care in selecting securities for purchase or investment.
    The Board shall prepare an annual capital plan which details the proposed budget year and 3 year capital needs of each university for capital expenditures to finance revenue producing facilities through the issuance of revenue bonds. This plan shall detail each project and the project cost in current dollar amounts. The plan shall contain the appropriate detail for the proposed budget year and the 3 year plan which will justify the projects ability to meet: the debt service requirements by producing sufficient revenue, life expectancy and maintenance requirements. Such annual capital plans shall be submitted to the Board of Higher Education.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
