This title shall be deemed to provide a complete, additional, and alternative method for the doing of the things authorized thereby, and shall be regarded as supplemental and additional to powers conferred by other laws.

Rapid rail transit system facilities and projects, as defined in Section 92015, may be acquired, constructed, completed, repaired, altered, improved, or extended, and bonds may be issued for any of those purposes under this title, notwithstanding that any other law may provide for such acquisition, construction, completion, repair, alteration, improvement, or extension of similar facilities or for the issuance of bonds for similar purposes and without regard to the requirements, restrictions, limitations, or other provisions contained in any other law.

The State of California does hereby pledge to, and agree with, the holders of any obligations issued under this title, and with those parties who may enter into contracts with the commission pursuant to this title, that the state will not limit or alter the rights hereby vested in the commission until the obligations, together with the interest thereon, are fully met and discharged and the contracts are fully performed on the part of the commission. However, nothing in this section precludes such limitation or alteration if and when adequate provision has been made by law for the protection of the holders of obligations of the commission or those entering into contracts with the commission.

The commission, as agent for the state, may include this pledge and undertaking for the state in its obligations and contracts.
