  2.  Bonds issued by a land bank agency shall not be deemed to be an indebtedness within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation upon the incurring of indebtedness.  The bonds shall not constitute a debt, liability, or obligation of the state or of any political subdivision thereof, except in accordance with subsection 4 of this section, or a pledge of the full faith and credit or the taxing power of the state or of any such political subdivision, and the bonds shall contain a recital to that effect.  Neither the members of the board nor any person executing the bonds shall be liable personally on the bonds by reason of the issuance thereof.

  3.  Bonds issued by a land bank agency shall be authorized by resolution of the board and shall be issued in such form, shall be in such denominations, shall bear interest at such rate or rates, shall mature on such dates and in such manner, shall be subject to redemption at such times and on such terms, and shall be executed by one or more members of the board, as provided in the resolution authorizing the issuance thereof or as set out in the indenture or other financing document authorized and approved by such resolution.  The board may sell such bonds in such manner, either at public or at private sale, and for such price as it may determine to be in the best interests of the land bank agency.

  4.  Any political subdivision may elect to guarantee, insure, or otherwise become primarily or secondarily obligated with respect to the bonds issued by a land bank agency subject, however, to the provisions of Missouri law applicable to the incurrence of indebtedness by such political subdivision.  No political subdivision shall have any such obligation if it does not so elect.

  5.  A land bank agency may from time to time, as authorized by resolution of the board, issue refunding bonds for the purpose of refunding, extending and unifying all or any part of its valid outstanding bonds.  Such refunding bonds may be payable from any of the sources identified in subsections 1 and 4 of this section, and from the investment of any of the proceeds of the refunding bonds.
