  (2)  "Authority", the Missouri agricultural and small business development authority organized under sections 348.005 to 348.180;

  (3)  "Borrower", any partnership, corporation, cooperative, or limited liability company organized or incorporated under the laws of this state consisting of not less than twelve members for the purpose of owning or operating within this state a development facility or a renewable fuel production facility in which producer members:

  (a)  Hold a majority of the governance or voting rights of the entity and any governing committee;

  (b)  Control the hiring and firing of management; and

  (c)  Deliver agricultural commodities or products to the entity for processing, unless processing is required by multiple entities;

  (4)  "Development facility", a facility producing either a good derived from an agricultural commodity or using a process to produce a good derived from an agricultural product;

  (5)  "Eligible facility borrower", a development facility or renewal fuel production facility borrower qualified by the authority under this section to apply for a reduced-rate loan under sections 30.750 to 30.765;

  (6)  "Renewable fuel production facility", a facility producing an energy source that is derived from a renewable, domestically grown organic compound capable of powering machinery, including an engine or power plant, and any by-product derived from such energy source.

  2.  The authority shall accept applications and issue certificates of qualification as an eligible facility borrower to development facilities and renewable fuel production facilities for purposes of applying for reduced-rate loans under sections 30.750 to 30.765 to finance new costs or refinance existing debt associated with such facilities.  The authority may charge for each certificate of qualification a one-time fee in an amount not to exceed the actual cost of issuance of the certificate.

  3.  In determining whether a facility will qualify as an eligible facility borrower, the authority shall consider the following factors:

  (1)  The borrower's ability to repay the loan;

  (2)  The general economic conditions of the area in which the agricultural property will be or is located;

  (3)  The prospect of success of the particular project for which the loan is sought; and

  (4)  Such other factors as the authority may establish by rule.

  4.  No reduced rate loan made to an eligible facility borrower under sections 30.750 to 30.765 shall:

  (1)  Exceed seventy million dollars for any single eligible facility borrower;

  (2)  Exceed seventy percent of the total anticipated cost of the development facility or renewable fuel production facility or, in the case of refinancing existing debt, ninety percent of the fair market value of the development facility or renewable fuel production facility;

  (3)  Exceed a loan term of five years, except that such loan may be extended up to two additional loan periods of five years each for a maximum total loan term of fifteen years; and

  (4)  When a banking institution or an eligible lending institution extends credit under the provisions of this section and provides the lead in underwriting the credit, it may enter into a participation agreement, sell part of the loan to third parties, syndicate the loan, or make other written arrangement with financial intermediaries, provided that at all times any financial intermediary, participant, purchaser, or other party obtaining a legal or equitable interest in the loan otherwise qualifies for linked deposit loans and fully collateralizes those loans as required by this chapter.

  5.  The state treasurer may contract with other parties as permitted in section 30.286 and consult with the authority to implement this section.  However, the state treasurer shall make the final determination on the placement of linked deposits of state funds in banking institutions or eligible lending institutions as permitted by the constitution.

  6.  The state treasurer shall promulgate rules to implement the provisions of this section.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2005, shall be invalid and void.

  7.  The provisions of sections 23.250 to 23.298 shall not apply to the provisions of this section.
