The board may contract for a project authorized by the Legislature before issuing certificates, revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes pursuant to Section 15820.40 if any segment of higher education provides from any lawful source temporary construction financing to meet contract payments for the project or if the board obtains a loan from the General Fund.

The loan amount shall be repaid by the board to the General Fund together with interest in the amount that those moneys would have earned in the Pooled Money Investment Account.
