Assignment of receipts.
(a) Any transferring unit which receives revenues or taxes from a State entity may (to the extent not prohibited by any applicable statute, regulation, rule, or agreement governing the use of such revenues or taxes) authorize, by ordinance, the conveyance of all or any portion of such revenues or taxes to an issuing entity. Any conveyance of transferred receipts shall: (i) be made pursuant to an assignment agreement in exchange for the net proceeds of obligations issued by the issuing entity for the benefit of the transferring unit and shall, for all purposes, constitute an absolute conveyance of all right, title, and interest therein; (ii) not be deemed a pledge or other security interest for any borrowing by the transferring unit; (iii) be valid, binding, and enforceable in accordance with the terms thereof and of any related instrument, agreement, or other arrangement, including any pledge, grant of security interest, or other encumbrance made by the issuing entity to secure any obligations issued by the issuing entity for the benefit of the transferring unit; and (iv) not be subject to disavowal, disaffirmance, cancellation, or avoidance by reason of insolvency of any party, lack of consideration, or any other fact, occurrence, or State law or rule. On and after the effective date of the conveyance of the transferred receipts, the transferring unit shall have no right, title or interest in or to the transferred receipts conveyed and the transferred receipts so conveyed shall be the property of the issuing entity to the extent necessary to pay the obligations issued by the issuing entity for the benefit of the transferring unit, and shall be received, held, and disbursed by the issuing entity in a trust fund outside the treasury of the transferring unit. An assignment agreement may provide for the periodic reconveyance to the transferring unit of amounts of transferred receipts remaining after the payment of the obligations issued by the issuing entity for the benefit of the transferring unit.
(b) In connection with any conveyance of transferred receipts, the transferring unit is authorized to direct the applicable State entity to deposit or cause to be deposited any amount of such transferred receipts into a deposit account in order to secure the obligations issued by the issuing entity for the benefit of the transferring unit. Where the transferring unit states that such direction is irrevocable, the direction shall be treated by the applicable State entity as irrevocable with respect to the transferred receipts described in such direction. Each State entity shall comply with the terms of any such direction received from a transferring unit and shall execute and deliver such acknowledgments and agreements, including escrow and similar agreements, as the transferring unit may require to effectuate the deposit of transferred receipts in accordance with the direction of the transferring unit.
(c) Not later than the date of issuance by an issuing entity of any obligations secured by collections of transferred receipts, a certified copy of the ordinance authorizing the conveyance of the right to receive the transferred receipts, together with executed copies of the applicable assignment agreement and the agreement providing for the establishment of the deposit account, shall be filed with the State entity having custody of the transferred receipts.
