Title: SALE OF SECURITIES
19. To provide funds to meet the interest and principal payment requirements for the refunding bonds issued under this act and outstanding, there is hereby appropriated in the order following: a. Revenue derived from the collection of taxes as provided by the "Sales and Use Tax Act," P.L.1966, c.30 (C.54:32B-1 et seq.), or so much thereof as may be required; and b. If in any year or at any time funds, as hereinabove appropriated, necessary to meet interest and principal payments upon outstanding refunding bonds, be insufficient or not available, then and in that case there shall be assessed, levied and collected annually in each of the municipalities of the counties of this State a tax on real and personal property upon which municipal taxes are or shall be assessed, levied and collected, sufficient to meet the interest on all outstanding refunding bonds issued under this act and on those refunding bonds as it is proposed to issue under this act in the calendar year in which that tax is to be raised and for the payment of refunding bonds falling due in the year following the year for which the tax is levied. The tax thus imposed shall be assessed, levied and collected in the same manner and at the same time as other taxes upon real and personal property are assessed, levied and collected. The governing body of each municipality shall cause to be paid to the county treasurer of the county in which each municipality is located, on or before December 15 in each year, the amount of tax herein directed to be assessed and levied, and the county treasurer shall pay the amount of that tax to the State Treasurer on or before December 20 in each year. If on or before December 31 in any year the issuing officials shall determine that there are moneys in the General Fund beyond the needs of the State, sufficient to meet the principal of refunding bonds falling due and all interest payable in the ensuing calendar year, if the issuing officials shall by resolution so find and shall file their findings in the office of the State Treasurer, whereupon the State Treasurer shall transfer the moneys to a separate fund to be designated by him, and shall pay the principal and interest out of that fund as it shall become due and payable, and the other sources of payment of that principal and interest provided for in this section shall not then be available, and the receipts for that year from the tax specified in subsection a. of this section shall thereon be considered and treated as part of the General Fund, available for general purposes.
