  2.  The various counties in this state for themselves, as well as for and on behalf of any township, or other political subdivision for which the counties may have issued any revenue bonds, notes or other obligations, and the several cities, school districts or other political corporations or subdivisions of the state, are hereby authorized to refund, extend, and unify the whole or part of their valid outstanding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations, and for such purpose may issue, negotiate, sell and deliver refunding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations and with the proceeds therefrom pay off, redeem and cancel the obligations to be refunded in advance of their maturity or redemption or as the same mature or are called for redemption, or such refunding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations may be issued and delivered in exchange for and upon surrender and cancellation of the obligations refunded thereby.  In no case shall the refunding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations exceed the amount determined by the governing body of the issuing political corporation or subdivision to be necessary to pay or provide for the payment of the principal of the outstanding obligations to be refunded, together with the interest accrued thereon to the date of such refunding obligations and the interest to accrue thereon to the date of maturity or redemption of such obligations to be refunded and any premium which may be due under the terms of such obligations to be refunded and any amounts necessary for the payment of costs and expenses related to issuing such refunding obligations and to fund a debt service reserve fund for the obligations.  All such refunding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations shall bear interest at such rates as the governing body of the issuing political subdivision shall provide, which rates of interest may exceed the rates of interest on the obligations being refunded but shall not exceed the maximum legal rate established by section 108.170. The refunding revenue bonds, notes or other obligations may be payable from the same sources as were pledged to the payment of the obligations refunded and, in the discretion of the governing body of the issuing political subdivision, may be payable from any other source which may be pledged to the payment of revenue bonds, notes or other obligations under any provision of law relating to the issuance of the obligations refunded.  Nothing in this section shall be so construed as to prohibit any county, city, school district, or other political corporation or subdivision of the state from refunding its revenue bonded indebtedness without the submission of the question to a popular vote.
