Such bonds shall be sold in such manner as the board may determine to be for the best interests of the state, taking into consideration the financial responsibility of the purchaser, the terms and conditions of the purchase, and especially the availability of the proceeds of the bonds when required for payment of the cost of such building or buildings, such sale to be made at a price not lower than a price which, when computed upon standard tables of bond values, will show a net return of not more than eight percent per annum to the purchaser upon the amount paid therefor. The proceeds of such bonds shall be used solely for the payment of the cost of such building or buildings, and shall be deposited in the state treasury in a special fund and checked out as provided by law for the disbursement of other state funds. If the proceeds of such bonds, by error in calculation or otherwise, shall be less than the cost of such building or buildings, additional bonds may in like manner be issued to provide the amount of the deficiency; and unless otherwise provided for in the resolution or trust agreement hereinafter mentioned, shall be deemed to be of the same issue, and shall be entitled to payment from the same fund, without preference or priority, as the bonds before issued for such building or buildings. If the proceeds of bonds issued for such building or buildings shall exceed the cost thereof, the surplus shall be paid into the sinking fund to be established for payment of the principal and interest of such bonds as hereinafter provided. Prior to the preparation of definitive bonds, the board may, under like restrictions, issue temporary bonds with or without coupons, exchangeable for definitive bonds upon their issuance.
The bonds issued under the provisions of this article shall be and have all the qualities of negotiable instruments under the law merchant and the Uniform Commercial Code of this state.
