18.561 18.561 Enterprise obligations.
18.561(1)(1)Payment with revenue obligations. The state and a contracting party may provide, in any contract for purchasing or acquiring a revenue-producing enterprise or program, that payment shall be made in revenue obligations.
18.561(2) (2) Security interests of owners of enterprise obligations. There is a mortgage lien upon or security interest in the income and property of each revenue-producing enterprise or program for the benefit of the owners of the related enterprise obligations. No physical delivery, recordation or other action is required to perfect the security interest. The income and property of the revenue-producing enterprise or program shall remain subject to the lien until provision for payment in full of the principal and interest of the enterprise obligations has been made, as provided in the authorizing resolution. Any owner of such enterprise obligations may either at law or in equity protect and enforce the lien and compel performance of all duties required by this section. If there is any default in the payment of the principal or interest of any of such enterprise obligations, any court having jurisdiction of the action may appoint a receiver to administer the revenue-producing enterprise or program on behalf of the state and the owners of the enterprise obligations, with power to charge and collect rates sufficient to provide for the payment of the operating expenses and also to pay any enterprise obligations outstanding against the revenue-producing enterprise or program, and to apply the income and revenues thereof in conformity with this subchapter and the authorizing resolution, or the court may declare the whole amount of the enterprise obligations due and payable, if such relief is requested, and may order and direct the sale of the revenue-producing enterprise or program. Under any sale so ordered, the purchaser shall be vested with an indeterminate permit to maintain and operate the revenue-producing enterprise or program. The legislature may provide for additions, extensions and improvements to a revenue-producing enterprise or program to be financed by additional issues of enterprise obligations as provided by this section. Such additional issues of enterprise obligations shall be subordinate to all prior related issues of enterprise obligations which may have been made under this section, unless the legislature, in the statute authorizing the initial issue of enterprise obligations, permits the issue of additional enterprise obligations on a parity therewith.
18.561(3) (3) Dedication of revenues. As accurately as possible in advance, the commission and the state department or agency carrying out program responsibilities for which enterprise obligations are to be issued shall determine, and the commission shall fix in the authorizing resolution for such enterprise obligations: the proportion of the revenues of the revenue-producing enterprise or program which shall be necessary for the reasonable and proper operation and maintenance thereof; the proportion of the revenues which shall be set aside as a proper and adequate replacement and reserve fund; and the proportion of the revenues which shall be set aside and applied to the payment of the principal and interest of the enterprise obligations, and shall provide that the revenues be set aside in separate funds. At any time after one year's operation, the state department or agency and the commission may recompute the proportion of the revenues which shall be assignable under this subsection based upon the experience of operation or upon the basis of further financing.
18.561(4) (4) Replacement and reserve fund. The proportion set aside to the replacement and reserve fund shall be available and shall be used, whenever necessary, to restore any deficiency in the redemption fund for the payment of the principal and interest due on enterprise obligations and for the creation and maintenance of any reserves established by the authorizing resolution to secure such payments. At any time when the redemption fund is sufficient for said purposes, moneys in the replacement and reserve fund may, subject to available appropriations, be expended either in the revenue-producing enterprise or program or in new acquisitions, constructions, extensions, additions, expansions or improvements. Any accumulations of the replacement and reserve fund may be invested as provided in this subchapter, and if invested, the income from the investment shall be carried in the replacement and reserve fund.
18.561(5) (5) Redemption fund. The proportion which shall be set aside for the payment of the principal of and interest on the enterprise obligations and, as directed by the commission, payments to be received with respect to an agreement or ancillary arrangement entered into pursuant to s. 18.55 (6), shall, at such times as provided in the authorizing resolution, be set apart and paid into a separate fund in the treasury or in an account maintained by a trustee appointed for that purpose in the authorizing resolution to be identified as “the ... redemption fund". Each redemption fund shall be expended, and all moneys from time to time on hand therein are irrevocably appropriated, in sums sufficient, only for the payment of principal of and interest on the enterprise obligations giving rise to it and premium, if any, due upon redemption of any such obligations, and for payment of obligations under an agreement or ancillary arrangement entered into under s. 18.55 (6) to the extent provided for in an authorizing resolution. Moneys in the redemption funds may be commingled only for the purpose of investment with other public funds, but they shall be invested only in investment instruments permitted in s. 25.17 (3) (dr). All such investments shall be the exclusive property of the fund and all earnings on or income from such investments shall be credited to the fund.
18.561(6) (6) Redemption fund surplus. If any surplus is accumulated in any of the redemption funds, subject to any contract rights vested in owners of enterprise obligations secured thereby, it shall be paid over to the treasury.
18.561(7) (7) Payment for services. The reasonable cost and value of any service rendered to the state by a revenue-producing enterprise or program shall be charged against the state and shall be paid for by it in periodic installments, subject to available appropriations.
18.561(8) (8) Rates for services. The rates for all services rendered by a revenue-producing enterprise or program to the state or to other consumers, shall be reasonable and just, taking into account and consideration the value of the services, the cost of maintaining and operating the same, the proper and necessary allowance for depreciation replacement and reserve, and a sufficient and adequate return upon the capital invested.
18.561(9) (9) Authorizing resolution. The commission may provide in the authorizing resolution for enterprise obligations or by subsequent action all things necessary to carry into effect this section. Any authorizing resolution shall constitute a contract with the owners of any enterprise obligations issued pursuant to the resolution. Any authorizing resolution may contain such provisions or covenants, without limiting the generality of the power to adopt the resolution, as are deemed necessary or desirable for the security of the owners of enterprise obligations or the marketability of the enterprise obligations.
18.561(10) (10) Sinking fund. The authorizing resolution may set apart enterprise obligations the par value of which are equal to the principal amount of any secured obligation or charge subject to which a revenue-producing enterprise or program is to be purchased or acquired, and shall set aside in a sinking fund from the income of the revenue-producing enterprise or program, a sum sufficient to comply with the requirements of the instrument creating the security interest. If the instrument does not make any provision for a sinking fund, the resolution shall fix and determine the amount that shall be set aside into the sinking fund from month to month for interest on the secured obligation or charge, and a fixed amount or proportion not exceeding a stated sum, which shall be not less than one percent of the principal, to be set aside into the fund to pay the principal of the secured obligation or charge. Any balance in the fund after satisfying the secured obligations or charge shall be transferred to the redemption fund. Enterprise obligations set aside for the secured obligation or charge may, from time to time, be issued to an amount sufficient with the amount then in the sinking fund, to pay and retire the secured obligation or charge or any portion thereof. The enterprise obligations may be issued in exchange for or satisfaction of the secured obligation or charge, or may be sold in the manner provided in this subchapter, and the proceeds applied in payment of the same at maturity or before maturity by agreement with the owner of the secured obligation or charge. The commission and the owners of any revenue-producing enterprise or program acquired or purchased may, upon such terms and conditions as are satisfactory, contract that enterprise obligations to provide for the discharge of the secured obligation or charge, or for the whole purchase price shall be deposited with a trustee or depository and released from the deposit from time to time on such terms and conditions as are necessary to secure the payment of the secured obligation or charge.

18.562(1)(b)1.1. Except as provided in subd. 2., the security interest for the benefit of the owners of the special fund obligations and other persons specified in the authorizing resolution providing for the issuance of the particular special fund obligations shall have priority over all conflicting security interests to the fees, penalties, or excise taxes that are required to be deposited in the special fund.
18.562(1)(b)2. 2. For different special fund obligations secured by the same fees, penalties, or excise taxes, priority shall be established according to the date of issuance of the special fund obligation or the incurrence of the other obligations specified in an authorizing resolution, if applicable, with earlier issuances or incurrences having priority over later issuances or incurrences, unless laws governing the issuance of a particular special fund obligation or the authorizing resolution providing for the issuance of a particular special fund obligation permit later issuances or incurrences on a parity or priority basis.
18.562(1)(c) (c) The special fund shall remain subject to the security interest until provision for payment in full of the principal and interest of the special fund obligations, and other obligations specified in the authorizing resolution providing for the issuance of the particular special fund obligations, has been made, as provided in the authorizing resolution.
18.562(1)(d) (d) An owner of special fund obligations may either at law or in equity protect and enforce the security interest and compel performance of all duties required by this section.

The special fund revenues that are to be set aside for the payment of the principal of and interest on the special fund obligations and, as directed by the commission, payments to be received with respect to an agreement or ancillary arrangement entered into under s. 18.55 (6), shall be paid into a separate fund in the treasury or in an account maintained by a trustee appointed for that purpose in the authorizing resolution to be identified as “the ... redemption fund". Each redemption fund shall be expended, and all moneys from time to time on hand therein are irrevocably appropriated, in sums sufficient, only for the payment of principal of and interest on the special fund obligations giving rise to it and premium, if any, due upon redemption of any such obligations, and for payment of obligations under an agreement or ancillary arrangement entered into under s. 18.55 (6) to the extent provided for in an authorizing resolution. Moneys in the redemption funds may be commingled only for the purpose of investment with other public funds, but they shall be invested only in investment instruments permitted in s. 25.17 (3) (dr). All such investments shall be the exclusive property of the fund and all earnings on or income from such investments shall be credited to the fund.
18.562(4) (4) Surplus. If any surplus is accumulated in any of the redemption funds, subject to contract rights vested in the owners of special fund obligations secured thereby, it shall be paid over to the treasury.
18.562(5) (5) Authorizing resolution.

18.57(1)(1)A separate and distinct fund shall be established in the state treasury or in an account maintained by a trustee appointed for that purpose by the authorizing resolution with respect to each revenue-producing enterprise or program the income from which is to be applied to the payment of any enterprise obligation. A separate and distinct fund shall be established in the state treasury or in an account maintained by a trustee appointed for that purpose by the authorizing resolution with respect to any special fund program that is financed through the issuance of special fund obligations. All moneys resulting from the issuance of evidences of revenue obligation shall be credited to the appropriate fund, applied for refunding or note renewal purposes, or to make deposits to reserve funds, except that moneys which represent accrued interest or, to the extent provided in the resolution authorizing the issuance of such evidences of revenue obligation, premium received on the issuance of evidences shall be credited to the appropriate redemption fund.

18.59 18.59 Bond anticipation notes.
18.59(1)(1)Whenever the commission has adopted an authorizing resolution for revenue-obligation bonds for any one or more of the purposes described in s. 18.53 (3), it may, prior to the issuance of the bonds and in anticipation of their sale, adopt an authorizing resolution for revenue-obligation bond anticipation notes. The authorizing resolution shall recite that all conditions precedent to the issuance of revenue-obligation bonds required by law or by the resolution authorizing the bonds have been complied with and that the notes are issued for the purposes for which the bonds were authorized or to renew notes issued for such purposes. The authorizing resolution shall pledge to the payment of the principal of the notes the proceeds of the sale of the bonds. Upon the adoption of the authorizing resolution, the authorizing resolution for the bonds shall be irrevocable until the notes have been paid.
18.59(2) (2)All original revenue-obligation bond anticipation notes shall be named revenue-bond anticipation notes and shall recite on their face that they are payable solely from the proceeds of revenue-obligation bonds to be issued under this subchapter. The aggregate amount of such notes outstanding including interest to accrue shall not exceed the aggregate principal amount of the bonds in anticipation of the sale of which they are issued. The rate of interest borne by the notes shall not exceed any maximum rate of interest authorized to be borne by the bonds. No lien shall be created or attached with respect to any property of the state as a consequence of the issuance of such notes except as provided in sub. (4).
18.59(4) (4)Upon the issuance of revenue-obligation bond anticipation notes, there shall be paid into the funds or accounts respectively provided for the payment of the principal and interest of the revenue-obligation bonds in anticipation of the sale of which the notes are issued, from the portion of the income of the enterprise or program allocated to the payment of principal and interest, the same amount at the same times as would have been required to be paid for the payment of the principal and interest of the bonds if the bonds, in an equal principal amount and at the same rate of interest, maturing in annual installments over 50 years, had been issued instead of the notes. Such moneys or any part thereof may, by the authorizing resolution for the notes, be pledged for the payment of the principal and interest of the notes.
18.59(5) (5)All funds derived from the sale of revenue-obligation bonds or renewal notes issued subsequent to the issuance of revenue-obligation bond anticipation notes which the notes were issued in anticipation of the sale shall constitute a trust fund, and the fund shall be expended first for the payment of principal and interest of the notes, and then may be expended for other purposes set forth in the authorizing resolution for the bonds or renewal notes.
18.59(6) (6)The commission may authorize the issuance of renewal revenue-obligation bond anticipation notes to provide funds for the payment of the principal and interest of any such notes then outstanding. All of the provisions of this section shall apply to the renewal notes.
18.59 History History: 1977 c. 29; 2001 a. 16.
18.60 18.60 Refunding obligations.
18.60(1)(1)The commission may authorize, for any one or more of the purposes described in s. 18.53 (1), the issuance of revenue-obligation refunding obligations. Refunding obligations may be issued, subject to any contract rights vested in owners of obligations or notes being refinanced, to refinance more than one issue of obligations or notes notwithstanding that the obligations or notes may have been issued at different times for different purposes and may be secured by the property or income of more than one enterprise or program or special fund or may be public debt or building-corporation indebtedness. The principal amount of refunding obligations shall not exceed the sum of: the principal amount of the obligations or notes being refinanced; applicable redemption premiums; unpaid interest on the obligations or notes to the date of delivery or exchange of the refunding obligations; in the event the proceeds are to be deposited in trust as provided in sub. (3), interest to accrue on the obligations or notes from the date of delivery to the date of maturity or to the redemption date selected by the commission, whichever is earlier; and the expenses incurred in the issuance of the refunding obligations and the payment of the obligations or notes. A determination by the commission that a refinancing is advantageous or that any of the amounts provided in the preceding sentence should be included in the refinancing shall be conclusive.
18.60(2) (2)If the commission determines to exchange refunding obligations, they may be exchanged privately for and in payment and discharge of any of the outstanding obligations or notes being refinanced. Refunding obligations may be exchanged for such principal amount of the obligations or notes being exchanged therefore as may be determined by the commission to be necessary or advisable. The owners of the obligations or notes being refunded who elect to exchange need not pay accrued interest on the refunding obligations if and to the extent that interest is accrued and unpaid on the obligations or notes being refunded and to be surrendered. If any of the obligations or notes to be refinanced are to be called for redemption, the commission shall determine which redemption dates shall be used, if more than one date is applicable and shall, prior to the issuance of the refunding obligations, provide for notice of redemption to be given in the manner and at the times required by the proceedings authorizing the outstanding obligations or notes.
18.60(3) (3)The principal proceeds from the sale of any refunding obligations shall be applied either to the immediate payment and retirement of the obligations or notes being refinanced or, if the obligations or notes have not matured and are not presently redeemable, to the creation of a trust for and shall be pledged to the payment of the obligations or notes being refinanced. If a trust is created, a separate deposit shall be made for each issue of obligations or notes being refinanced. Each deposit shall be with the secretary of administration or a bank or trust company that is then a member of the federal deposit insurance corporation. If the total amount of any deposit, including money other than sale proceeds but legally available for such purpose, is less than the principal amount of the obligations or notes being refinanced and for the payment of which the deposit has been created and pledged, together with applicable redemption premiums and interest accrued and to accrue to maturity or to the date of redemption, then the application of the sale proceeds shall be legally sufficient only if the money deposited is invested in securities issued by the United States or one of its agencies, or securities fully guaranteed by the United States, and only if the principal amount of the securities at maturity and the income therefrom to maturity will be sufficient and available, without the need for any further investment or reinvestment, to pay at maturity or upon redemption the principal amount of the obligations or notes being refinanced together with applicable redemption premiums and interest accrued and to accrue to maturity or to the date of redemption. The income from the principal proceeds of the securities shall be applied solely to the payment of the principal of and interest and redemption premiums on the obligations or notes being refinanced, but provision may be made for the pledging and disposition of any surplus. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as a limitation on the duration of any deposit in trust for the retirement of obligations or notes being refinanced, but which have not matured and which are not presently redeemable. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to prohibit reinvestment of the income of a trust if the reinvestments will mature at such times that sufficient cash will be available to pay interest, applicable premiums, and principal on the obligations or notes being refinanced.
18.60(4) (4)The commission may in addition to the other powers conferred by this subchapter, include a provision in any authorizing resolution for refunding obligations pledging all or any part of the special fund or income of any enterprise or program originally financed from the proceeds of any of the obligations or notes being refinanced, or pledging all or any part of the surplus income derived from the investment of any trust created under sub. (3), or both.
18.60(5) (5)All of the following provisions that are not inconsistent with the express provisions of this section shall apply to refunding obligations, except that the maximum permissible term shall be 50 years from the date of original issue of the oldest note or obligation issue being refunded:
18.60(5)(a) (a) Section 18.56.
18.60(5)(b) (b) In the case of enterprise obligations, s. 18.561.
18.60(5)(c) (c) In the case of special fund obligations, s. 18.562.

18.61 18.61 Undertakings of state.
18.61(1)(1)The state shall not be generally liable on revenue obligations and revenue obligations shall not be a debt of the state for any purpose whatsoever. All evidences of revenue obligation shall contain on their face a statement to that effect.
18.61(2) (2)The state pledges and agrees with the owners of revenue obligations that the state will not limit or alter its powers to fulfill the terms of any agreements made with the owners or in any way impair the rights and remedies of the owners until the revenue obligations, together with interest including interest on any unpaid installments of interest, and all costs and expenses in connection with any action or proceeding by or on behalf of the owners, are fully met and discharged. The commission may include this pledge and agreement of the state in any agreement with the owners of revenue obligation.
18.61(3) (3)
18.61(3)(a)(a) If the state fails to pay any revenue obligation in accordance with its terms, and default continues for a period of 30 days or if the state fails or refuses to comply with this subchapter or defaults in any agreement made with the owners of any issue of revenue obligations, the owners of 25 percent in aggregate principal amount of the revenue obligations of the issue then outstanding, by instrument recorded in the office of the register of deeds of Dane County and approved or acknowledged in the same manner as a deed to be recorded, may appoint a trustee to represent the owners of the revenue obligations for the purposes specifically provided in the instrument.
