I. To the extent required by section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or by any applicable successor provision of federal tax law, the authority may not issue bonds to finance a project in any state or territory of the United States unless the governor, or his or her designee in compliance with applicable federal law, of the state of New Hampshire has approved the financing of the project following a hearing held by the authority and unless the state or a political subdivision within whose boundaries the project is to be located has approved the financing of the project; provided that an approval by a political subdivision under this paragraph may be made by the governing body of the political subdivision or by the highest ranking executive or administrator of the political subdivision.
II. This chapter provides a complete alternative method to all other methods provided by law to exercise the powers authorized in this chapter, including the issuance of bonds, the entering into of contracts related to those bonds, and the financing or refinancing of projects.
III. A project may be located outside of the United States and outside a territory of the United States, and the authority may issue bonds to finance or refinance such project, if at the time of issuance of such bonds the participating institution with respect thereto is incorporated and has its principal place of business within the United States or a territory of the United States.
IV. Any action brought to challenge the validity of the issuance of a bond under this chapter, or the enforceability of a contract entered into under this chapter, must be commenced in a court of competent jurisdiction in the state within 30 days of adoption by the authority of the resolution authorizing the issuance of the bond or the execution of the contract.
V. Bonds issued under this chapter shall not be invalid for any irregularity or defect in the proceedings for their sale or issuance. All bonds shall contain, on their face, a statement that they have been authorized and issued pursuant to the laws of the state, and such statement shall be conclusive evidence of the validity of the bonds.
