For purposes of this section, “local governmental agencies” shall not include private entities, private nonprofit entities, private tax exempt entities, or any consortium, cooperative, or combination of private-public entities or organizations.

However, interest shall be paid on all moneys loaned to the General Fund from the California State University Trust Fund. Interest payable shall be computed at a rate determined by the Pooled Money Investment Board to be the current earning rate of the fund from which loaned.
