3318.22 Authorization to provide assistance and contribute to educational revitalization of certain districts.

(A) The general assembly finds that many school districts are prevented by their size, tax base, or other conditions from performing their essential functions as agencies of state government to provide adequate classroom facilities and issuing securities under Chapter 133. of the Revised Code at favorable interest rates or charges. Accordingly, the Ohio school facilities commission is invested with the powers and duties provided in sections 3318.21 to 3318.29 of the Revised Code in order to provide deserved assistance and materially contribute to the educational revitalization of such school districts and result in improving the education and welfare of all the people of the state.

(B) Sections 3318.21 to 3318.29 of the Revised Code do not authorize the commission or the issuing authority to incur bonded indebtedness of the state or any political subdivision of the state, or to obligate or pledge moneys raised by taxation for the payment of any bonds or notes issued pursuant to sections 3318.21 to 3318.29 of the Revised Code.
