279.10 Bonds not public debt.


(1) The state is not liable on bonds of the authority and the bonds are not debt of the state. Each bond of the authority shall contain a statement to this effect on the face of the bond. The issuance of bonds under this chapter does not, directly, indirectly, or contingently, obligate the state or any political subdivision of the state to levy any tax or to make any appropriation for payment of the bonds. The authority may not pledge its full faith and credit to the payment of bonds issued under this chapter.


(2) Nothing in this chapter authorizes the authority to create a debt of the state, and all bonds issued by the authority under this chapter are payable, and shall state that they are payable, solely from the special fund containing the assessments and other moneys pledged for their payment in accordance with the bond resolution authorizing their issuance or in any trust agreement or trust indenture entered into to provide terms and conditions for the bonds. The state is not liable for the payment of the principal of or interest on any bonds of the authority or for the performance of any pledge, obligation, or agreement that is undertaken by the authority. The breach of any pledge, obligation, or agreement undertaken by the authority does not impose any pecuniary liability upon the state or any charge upon its general credit or against its taxing power.
