Revenue Bonds. Revenue or special obligation bonds are typically payable only from the revenues derived from a particular facility or class of facilities or, in some cases, from the proceeds of a special excise tax or other specific revenue source such as from the user of the facility being financed. Accordingly, the timely payment of interest and the repayment of principal in accordance with the terms of the revenue or special obligation bond is a function of the economic viability of such facility or such revenue source. Revenue bonds issued by state or local agencies to finance the development of low-income, multi-family housing involve special risks in addition to those associated with municipal securities generally, including that the underlying properties may not generate sufficient income to pay expenses and interest costs. Such bonds are generally non-recourse against the property owner, may be junior to the rights of others with an interest in the properties, may pay interest that changes based in part on the financial performance of the property, may be prepayable without penalty and may be used to finance the construction of housing developments which, until completed and rented, do not generate income to pay interest. Increases in interest rates payable on senior obligations may make it more difficult for issuers to meet payment obligations on subordinated bonds. Moral Obligation Bonds. Municipal bonds may also include "moral obligation" bonds, which are normally issued by special purpose public authorities. If an issuer of moral obligation bonds is unable to meet its obligations, the repayment of such bonds becomes a moral commitment but not a legal obligation of the state or municipality in question.

Revenue Bonds. The principal security for a revenue bond is generally the net revenues derived from a particular facility, group of facilities, or, in some cases, the proceeds of a special excise tax or other specific revenue source. Revenue bonds are issued to finance a wide variety of capital projects. Examples include electric, gas, water and sewer systems; highways, bridges, and tunnels; port and airport facilities; colleges and universities; and hospitals. Although the principal security for these types of bonds may vary from bond to bond, many provide additional security in the form of a debt service reserve fund that may be used to make principal and interest payments on the issuer's obligations. Housing finance authorities have a wide range of security, including partially or fully insured mortgages, rent subsidized and/or collateralized mortgages, and/or the net revenues from housing or other public projects. Some authorities provide further security in the form of a state's ability (without obligation) to make up deficiencies in the debt service reserve fund.
Revenue Bonds from the Strategic Fund Trust Indenture Trustee stating that there has occurred under the Strategic Fund Trust Indenture both an Event of Default and a declaration of acceleration of payment of principal, accrued interest and premium, if any, on the Strategic Fund Revenue Bonds, specifying the last date to which interest on the Strategic Fund Revenue Bonds has been paid (such date being hereinafter referred to as the "Initial Interest Accrual Date") and demanding redemption of the bonds of said series. The Trustee shall, within five days after receiving such Redemption Demand, mail a copy thereof to the Company marked to indicate the date of its receipt by the Trustee. Promptly upon receipt by the Company of such copy of a Redemption Demand, the Company shall fix a date on which it will redeem the bonds of said series so demanded to be redeemed (hereinafter called the "Demand Redemption Date"). Notice of the date fixed as the Demand Redemption Date shall be mailed by the Company to the Trustee at least ten days prior to such Demand Redemption Date. The date to be fixed by the Company as and for the Demand Redemption Date may be any date up to and including the earlier of (x) the 60th day after receipt by the Trustee of the Redemption Demand or (y) the maturity date of such bonds first occurring following the 20th day after the receipt by the Trustee of the Redemption Demand; provided, however, that if the Trustee shall not have received such notice fixing the Demand Redemption Date on or before the 10th day preceding the earlier of such dates, the Demand Redemption Date shall be deemed to be the earlier of such dates. The Trustee shall mail notice of the Demand Redemption Date (such notice being hereinafter called the "Demand Redemption Notice") to the Strategic Fund Trust Indenture Trustee not more than ten nor less than five days prior to the Demand Redemption Date. Each bond of 1993 Series FP shall be redeemed by the Company on the Demand Redemption Date therefore upon surrender thereof by the Strategic Fund Trust Indenture Trustee to the Trustee at a redemption price equal to the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest thereon at the rate specified for such bond from the Initial Interest Accrual Date to the Demand Redemption Date plus an amount equal to the aggregate premium, if any, due and payable on such Demand Redemption Date on all Strategic Fund Revenue Bonds; provided, however, that in the event of a receipt by the Trustee of a notice tha...
Revenue Bonds. An entity created to carry out an agreement authorizing the joint exercise of those governmental powers enumerated in section 28F.1 shall have power to construct, acquire, own, repair, improve, expand, operate and maintain a project or projects necessary to carry out the purposes of such agreement, and to issue from time to time revenue bonds payable from the revenues derived from such project or projects, or any combination of such projects, to finance the cost or part of the cost of the acquisition, construction, reconstruction, repair, extension or improvement of such project or projects, including the acquisition for the purposes of such agreement, of any property, real or personal or mixed therefor. The power of the entity to issue revenue bonds shall not be exercised until authorized by resolution duly adopted by each of the public agencies participating in such agreement. Public agencies participating in such an agreement may not withdraw or in any way terminate, amend, or modify in any manner to the detriment of the bondholders said agreement if revenue bonds or obligations issued in anticipation of the issuance of said revenue bonds have been issued and are then outstanding and unpaid as provided for herein. Any revenue bonds for the payment and discharge of which, upon maturity or upon redemption prior to maturity, provision has been made through the setting apart in a reserve fund or special trust account created pursuant to this chapter to insure the payment thereof, of moneys sufficient for that purpose or through the irrevocable segregation for that purpose in a sinking fund or other fund or trust account of moneys sufficient therefor, shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding and unpaid within the meaning of any provision of this chapter.

Interest on certain Qualified Private Activity Bonds is excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes if certain tests are met. They are issued by or on behalf of public authorities to raise money to finance various privately operated facilities for business and manufacturing, housing, sports, and pollution control. These bonds may also be used to finance public facilities such as airports, mass transit systems, ports, and parking. The payment of the principal and interest on such bonds is dependent solely on the ability of the facility's user to meet its financial obligations and the pledge, if any, of real and personal property financed by the bond as security for those payments. The Tax Reform Act of 1986 (the "Tax Reform Act") reorganized, as well as amended, the rules governing tax exemption for interest on certain types of municipal securities. The Tax Reform Act generally did not change the tax treatment of bonds issued in order to finance governmental operations. Thus, interest on general obligation bonds issued by or on behalf of state or local governments, the proceeds of which are used to finance the operations of such governments, continues to be tax-exempt (and excludable from gross income). However, the Tax Reform Act limited the use of tax-exempt bonds for non-governmental (private) purposes. More stringent restrictions were placed on the use of pro...
