5 forth the covenants and undertakings of the Authority in
6 connection with the issuance thereof and the issuance of any
7 additional revenue bonds, notes, or other evidences of
8 indebtedness payable from such revenues, income, or other funds
9 to be derived from projects, the Authority may execute and
10 deliver a mortgage or trust agreement. A remedy for any breach
11 or default of the terms of any such mortgage or trust agreement
12 by the Authority may be by mandamus proceedings in the
13 appropriate circuit court to compel the performance and
14 compliance therewith, but the trust agreement may prescribe by

33 interest thereon, with interest on any unpaid installments of
34 interest, and all costs and expenses in connection with any
35 action or proceedings by or on behalf of such holders, are

SB0821 Enrolled - 14 - LRB094 04451 MKM 34480 b

1 include these pledges and agreements of the State in any
2 contract with the holders of revenue bonds or notes issued
3 pursuant to this Section.

9 indebtedness of the Authority within the purview of any
10 constitutional limitation or provision, and it shall be plainly
