§31-18B-12. Rules of construction and interpretation for prompt implementation of this article.
It is the intent of the Legislature that the housing development fund shall proceed with the implementation of this article promptly upon the effective date of this article under the provisions of this section and of Enrolled Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 409, enacted at the regular session of the Legislature in the year one thousand nine hundred eighty-two.

Notwithstanding the provisions of sections seven and eight of this article for the promulgation of legislative rules and notwithstanding any contrary provisions of chapter twenty-nine-a of this code:

(1) The housing development fund may promulgate emergency rules pursuant to the provisions of section fifteen, article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code to implement this article. Any such emergency rule, whether procedural, interpretive or legislative, shall be effective upon filing thereof in the state register. No findings of circumstances to justify such emergency rules shall be required; such emergency rules shall be deemed to have been promulgated to comply with a time limitation established by this code. No action shall lie for de novo or other review of such rule to contest or question the existence of circumstances justifying the promulgation of an emergency rule nor to challenge the validity of such rule because of its classification as an emergency rule: Provided, That no such rule shall suspend the provisions of section eight of this article.

(2) Any deed, deed of trust, mortgage or other instrument or document utilized in connection with any transaction arising under or affected by this article may contain provisions related to any emergency rule promulgated under this section and any extension or amendment thereof and shall, to the extent the instrument or document so provides, fully bind and be enforceable by the parties thereto as if such rule had been properly made effective under law and whether or not such rule thereafter expires or is revoked: Provided, That no such provision or agreement under this subdivision shall suspend the provisions of this article or exceed its limitations.
