§3273. Bonds as legal investments
All public officers, municipal corporations, political subdivisions and public bodies, all banks, trust companies, bankers, savings banks and institutions, building and loan associations, savings and loan associations, investment companies and other persons carrying on a banking business; all insurance companies, insurance associations, and other persons carrying on an insurance business; all funds established for pension or other benefits for public employees; and all executors, administrators, tutors, curators, trustees, and other fiduciaries may legally invest any sinking funds, moneys, or other funds belonging to them or within their control in any bonds of the district or other obligations issued by the commission. These bonds and other obligations are also security for all public deposits. It is the purpose of this Section to authorize any persons, political subdivisions, and officers, public or private, to use any funds owned or controlled by them for the purchase of any such bonds or other obligations issued by the commission. However, nothing contained in this Section with regard to legal investments relieves any person of any duty of exercising reasonable care in selecting securities. The commission shall not be liable to beneficiaries, minors, wards or interdicted persons for moneys paid to their trustees, tutors or curators on account of such bonds or obligations.
