Finance Authority Meeting Proposed
Finance Authority Meeting Postponed State officials have postponed a meeting which had been scheduled for today for discussion of Oklahoma Development Finance Authority loan practices. The meeting will be rescheduled.
Representatives of the Oklahoma Executive Bond Oversight Commission, Oklahoma Legislative Bond Oversight Commission, development finance authority and Oklahoma Futures plan to meet for further study of a dispute stemming from authority-approved loans averaging $2.4 million.
The authority, created by the Economic Devleopment Act of 1987, granted its first loan last September, and has approved 13 loans totaling $31.9 million. The authority's loans, by law, are funded through bond sales. None of the 13 loans have yet been funded.
Three loans totaling $7.5 million have been put on hold until the bond oversight commissions can reach agreement with the authority on the rules and regulations governing the authority's loan practices.
