Chapter 62
The Rhode Island Student Loan Authority

R.I. Gen. Laws § 16-62-10

§ 16-62-10. Security for bonds and notes.

(a) The principal of and interest on any bonds or notes issued by the authority may be secured by a pledge or assignment of any revenues, receipts, or assets of the authority and may be secured by a security interest or other instrument covering all or any part of one or more eligible loans or education loans made or acquired by the authority pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.

(b) The resolution under which the bonds or notes are authorized to be issued and any security interest or other instrument may contain any agreements and provisions respecting the servicing of the loans covered by it, any fixing and collection of payments or repayments or other revenues from these, any creation and maintenance of special funds from those revenues, and any rights and remedies available in the event of default, all as the authority shall deem advisable.

(c) Each pledge, assignment, agreement, security interest, or other instrument made for the benefit or security of any of the bonds or notes of the authority shall continue in effect until the principal of and interest on the bonds or notes for the benefit of which the pledge or security agreement was made shall have been fully paid, or until provision shall have been made for that payment in the manner provided in the resolution under which the bonds or notes were authorized.

(d) Any pledge made by the authority shall be valid and binding from the time it is made. The money or property pledged and received after this by the authority shall immediately be subject to the lien of the pledge without physical delivery or further act. The lien of the pledge shall be valid and binding against all parties having a claim in tort, contract, or against the authority, whether or not the parties have notice of the claim. Neither the resolution nor any instrument by which a pledge is created needs to be recorded.

(e) Any resolution under which bonds or notes of authority are authorized to be issued, and any trust indenture established by it, may contain provisions for vesting in a trustee or trustees any properties, rights, powers, and duties in trust as the authority may determine.
