A. Any revenue bonds issued under the provisions of the Redevelopment Bonding Law [3-60A-26 through 3-60A-46 NMSA 1978] and at any time outstanding may at any time and from time to time be refunded by a municipality by the issuance of its refunding bonds in such amount as the governing body may deem necessary to refund the principal of the bonds to be so refunded, any unpaid interest thereon and any premiums and incidental expenses necessary to be paid in connection therewith.
B. Any such refunding may be effected, whether the bonds to be refunded have matured or shall thereafter mature, either by sale of the refunding bonds and the application of the proceeds thereof, directly or indirectly, to the payment of the bonds to be refunded thereby, or by exchange of the refunding bonds for the bonds to be refunded thereby, but the holders of any bonds to be so refunded shall not be compelled, without their consent, to surrender their bonds for payment or exchange prior to the date on which they are payable by maturity date, option to redeem, or otherwise or if they are called for redemption prior to the date on which they are by their terms subject to redemption by option or otherwise.
C. All refunding bonds issued under authority of the Redevelopment Bonding Law to refund revenue bonds shall be payable solely from revenues out of which bonds to be refunded thereby are payable or from revenues out of which bonds of the same character may be made payable under the Redevelopment Bonding Law or any other law in effect at the time of the refunding.
