(b) The authority periodically may issue renewal notes, may issue bonds to pay notes and, if it considers refunding expedient, to refund or to refund in advance bonds or notes issued by the authority by the issuance of new bonds pursuant to the requirements of section thirteen of this article.
(c) The authority may, upon concurrent resolution passed by the Legislature, authorize the issuance of negotiable bonds and notes in a principal amount which are necessary to provide sufficient funds for the construction, reconstruction, renovation and maintenance of one or more skilled nursing facilities that will only serve the skilled nursing needs of West Virginia veterans who have performed active duty in an active component of the armed forces or performed active service in a reserve component of the armed forces. These bonds issued by the authority may not exceed ten million dollars. The revenues pledged for the repayment of principal and interest of these bonds shall include the net profit of the veterans instant lottery scratch-off game authorized by section nine-a, article twenty-two, chapter twenty-nine of this code excluding all architectural fees and associated project costs transferred pursuant to that section.

(e) The bonds and the notes shall be authorized by resolution of the authority, shall bear the date and shall mature at time or times, in the case of any such note or any renewals thereof, not exceeding seven years from the date of issue of the original note and in the case of any bond not exceeding fifty years from the date of issue, as the resolution may provide. The bonds and notes shall bear interest at rate or rates, be in a denomination, be in a form, either coupon or registered, carry registration privileges, be payable in the medium of payment and at place or places and be subject to the terms of redemption as the authority may authorize.

In case any officer whose signature, or a facsimile of whose signature, appears on any bonds, notes or coupons ceases to be an officer before delivery of the bonds or notes, the signature or facsimile is nevertheless sufficient for all purposes the same as if he or she had remained in office until the delivery; and, in case the seal of the authority has been changed after a facsimile has been imprinted on the bonds or notes, the facsimile seal will continue to be sufficient for all purposes.
