CHAPTER 13. PROPERTY AND BUILDINGS
33:4712.7 Acquisition of movables; financing; disposition upon non-appropriation
A. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, any political subdivision may finance the acquisition of equipment and other movable property to be used by such political subdivision by entering into an installment sale, lease, or similar agreement with any lender or other person. Such agreement shall be subject to approval of the State Bond Commission in accordance with the provisions of R.S. 39:1410.60 et seq.
B. Under such agreement, title to the equipment or other movable property may vest by contract with either the political subdivision or the other party to the agreement during the term of such agreement. Regardless of whether title to such property vests with the political subdivision or the other party to the agreement under the terms of the agreement or by operation of law, the agreement may provide that the equipment or movable property shall be transferred by the political subdivision to the other party to the agreement or its assignee if the political subdivision fails to appropriate funds sufficient to make payments under the agreement.
