(A) Provision may be made for costs and expenses of providing credit facilities, put arrangements, and interest rate hedges, and for fees and expenses of agents, and other fees, costs, and expenses in connection with arrangements under sections 9.98 to 9.983 of the Revised Code to be paid directly by the absolute obligor, or to be included in the principal amount of the bonds, or to be paid from the same sources of moneys available for debt service or from funds established under the bond proceedings, or otherwise to be provided for. Those costs may be treated as other costs of financing of the facilities to be financed by the bonds or as costs of issuing the bonds under the law authorizing the issuance of the bonds.
(B) As additional and alternative authority for issuing bonds to refund bonds referred to in division (A) or (B) of section 9.981 of the Revised Code, and without need for satisfying any other statutory purposes or conditions for refunding, refunding bonds may be issued pursuant to procedures under the applicable provisions of law upon a declaration by the issuer that the issuer or the absolute obligor under the refunding bonds has determined or expects that the refunding will be beneficial by reason of the terms, conditions, covenants, or security pertaining to the bonds to be refunded. Refunding bonds issued in reliance on this division shall mature not later than forty years after their issuance.
