In order to provide funds for the repayment of bonds issued by the Authority either (i) for the purchase of any educational institution’s bonds or (ii) to provide funds for the purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of any one or more projects or of any portion or portions thereof, each educational institution is authorized to agree to pledge and transfer to the Authority all or a part of the educational institution’s revenues derived from any one or more of the sources mentioned in subdivisions (1) through (4) of subsection (d) of § 23-19. Any agreement related to such transfer may contain such other provisions the Authority and educational institution deem reasonable and proper and not in violation of law. Any such agreement shall not be deemed to constitute a debt of the Commonwealth or a pledge of the full faith and credit of the Commonwealth. Neither the full faith and credit of the Commonwealth nor the taxing power of the Commonwealth or any political subdivision thereof is or shall be pledged to the payment of the principal of and interest on bonds so secured by such agreement. Prior to execution, any such agreement shall be approved by (i) the Secretary of Finance and (ii) the Secretary of Education.
