The State Director of Finance may purchase any bonds issued by joint highway districts and pay for them out of any surplus money in the State treasury which, in his judgment, is not required for governmental purposes prior to the maturity of such bonds.

No action or proceeding shall be thereafter commenced or maintained to cancel or set aside the bonds or to prevent the payment thereof or the levy, collection or enforcement of any assessment tax, tax or other charge made for such payment.
