§5F-2-6. Reorganization of boards issuing or incurring debt.
(a) The Legislature finds and declares that boards and commissions empowered to issue bonds, incur indebtedness and provide financing or financial services for a public purpose may in some cases benefit the public interest or operate more efficiently through consolidation of legal, technical and support staff or services, sharing of office space, consolidation of procedures, and cooperation to identify circumstances where one entity may provide services for another, including, but not limited to, circumstances where one board or commission may finance the programs of another.

(3) The staff of the public energy authority provided for in article one, chapter five-d of this code.
