(A) (i) The sum of the amount borrowed to finance or refinance working capital and the interest payable on the working capital assumed at the initial interest rate if interest is variable, shall not exceed 85 percent of the estimated amount of uncollected taxes, income, revenue, cash receipts, and other funds to be received by the participating party, which:

The participating party shall also represent in the notice that it is not submitting the notice for the purpose of accelerating a participating party’s receipt of its apportionments. Nothing in this section prohibits transfer by the recipient of an apportionment under this section to the participating party submitting the notice of the excess apportionment above the amount needed to fund actual payments where the excess resulted from erroneous estimation of scheduled payments or otherwise.

(2) The authority shall prioritize applications at appropriate intervals.

(3) A school district electing to participate under this section that has applied for revenue bond moneys for purposes of joint venture school facilities construction projects, pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 17060) of Chapter 12, shall not be subject to the priorities set forth in paragraph (1).

(i) This section shall not be construed to make the State of California liable for any payments within the meaning of Section 1 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

(j) A school district that has a qualified or negative certification pursuant to Section 42131, or a county office of education that has a qualified or negative certification pursuant to Section 1240, may not participate under this section.

(k) This section does not obligate the State of California to make available the sources of apportionment under subdivision (f) in any amount or at any time or, except as provided in this section, to fund any payment described in this section. The addition of this subdivision is intended solely to clarify existing law.
