  2.  To obtain authorization for the issuance of bonds, the highways and transportation commission shall annually present to the general assembly, by the tenth legislative day, a proposed plan and an analysis demonstrating the feasibility and appropriateness thereof.  The plan to issue bonds shall become effective no later than forty-five calendar days after the plan proposed by the highways and transportation commission is submitted to a regular session of the general assembly, unless it is disapproved within forty-five calendar days of its submission to a regular session by a concurrent resolution introduced within fourteen calendar days of the submission of the plan to a regular session of the general assembly and adopted by a majority vote of the elected members of each house.  If no concurrent resolution disapproving of the highway plan is introduced within fourteen calendar days of the submission of the plan to the legislature, then the plan shall become effective immediately.  The presiding officer of each house in which a concurrent resolution disapproving of a plan to issue bonds has been introduced, unless the resolution has been previously accepted or rejected by that house, shall submit it to a vote of the membership not sooner than seven calendar days or later than fourteen calendar days after introduction of the concurrent resolution pertaining to the department of transportation plan.  The presiding officer of the house passing a concurrent resolution disapproving of a plan to issue bonds shall immediately forward the bill to the other house and the presiding officer of that house shall submit it to a vote of the membership not sooner than seven calendar days or later than fourteen calendar days of its receipt from the other legislative body.  The plan submitted by the highways and transportation commission shall not be subject to amendment by either chamber and may only be rejected in its entirety.

  3.  The highways and transportation commission shall offer such bonds at public sale or negotiated sale.  The bonds shall be for a period of not less than ten years and not more than twenty years from their date of issue and shall bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding the rate permitted by law.

  4.  The proceeds of the sale or sales of any bonds issued pursuant to this section shall be paid into the state road fund to be expended for the purpose specified pursuant to the provisions of section 226.220.

  5.  Bonds issued pursuant to this section shall be state road bonds as such term is used in Section 30(b) of Article IV of the State Constitution, and as such, principal and interest payments on such bonds shall be made from the state road fund as provided in Section 30(b) of Article IV of the State Constitution.  Bonds issued pursuant to this section shall not be deemed to constitute a debt or liability of the state or a pledge of the full faith and credit of the state, and the principal and interest on such bonds shall be payable solely from the state road fund.  Bonds issued pursuant to this section, the interest thereon, or any proceeds from such bonds, shall be exempt from taxation in the state of Missouri for all purposes except for the state estate tax.

  6.  Bonds may be issued for the purpose of refunding, either at maturity or in advance of maturity, any bonds issued under this section.  The proceeds of such refunding bonds may either be applied to the payment of the bonds being refunded or deposited in trust and maintained in cash or investments for the retirement of the bonds being refunded, as shall be specified by the highways and transportation commission and the authorizing resolution or trust indenture securing such refunding bonds.  The authorizing resolution or trust indenture securing the refunding bonds shall specify the amount and other terms of the refunding bonds and may provide that the refunding bonds shall have the same security for their payment as provided for the bonds being refunded.  The refunding bonds shall be for a period of not less than ten years and not more than twenty years from their date of issue and shall bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding the rate permitted by law.  The principal amount of refunding bonds issued pursuant to this section shall not be counted toward the limit on the principal amount of bonds permitted under this section.
