(1) Moneys sufficient to pay when and as due all amounts of principal and interest payable on such bonds; or

(2) Direct obligations of the United States of America or the state, or obligations fully and irrevocably secured as to the payment of both principal and interest by such direct obligations the payment on which when due will provide moneys, sufficient to pay when and as due all amounts of principal and interest payable on such bonds.
