All bonds shall contain on their face a statement to that effect.

Except as provided in Section 515.03 of H.B. 66 of the 126th General Assembly, this chapter does not authorize the board of trustees of a district to incur indebtedness or liability on behalf of or payable by the state or any political subdivision of the state.
