The issuance of the Bonds shall not directly, indirectly, or contingently obligate the District to levy or to pledge any other funds whatever therefor or to make any appropriation for its payment except from Assessment Proceeds and the Pledged Funds. The Bonds will not be obligations or indebtedness of the State of Florida or any agency, authority, district or political subdivision of the State of Florida, including Pasco County, other than the District.
The Bonds are expected to be sold via negotiated sale to Prager,
McCarthy & Sealy (the "Underwriter") and resold
through a limited public offering solely to accredited investors.

per annum. The maximum interest rate for the month of May 1996
