Texas Special District Local Laws Code
Sec. § 8101.257
Bond Security; Revenue; Taxes; Additional Bonds


In this section, “net revenue” means the gross revenue of the authority after deducting the amount necessary to pay the cost of maintaining and operating the authority, including its properties.


Bonds issued under this subchapter may be secured by:


a pledge of all or part of the net revenue of the authority, including the net revenue of a past or future contract; or


other revenue and income specified by resolution of the board or the trust indenture.


If bonds are issued payable wholly or partly from taxes, the board shall impose taxes on all taxable property in the authority without limit as to rate or amount while those bonds are outstanding. The board shall impose the taxes in amounts:


sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds annually as they mature; or


required to supplement the net revenue pledged to the bonds’ payment so that the principal of and interest on the bonds are paid when due.


A bond security pledge under this section may reserve to the authority the right, under conditions specified by the pledge, to issue additional bonds that will be on a parity with or subordinate to the bonds then being issued.
