(3) The state hereby pledges and covenants with the holders of any bonds issued pursuant to the provisions of this section, that it will not limit or alter the rights or powers vested in the authority by this section, nor limit or alter the rights or powers of the authority, the state board of regents or the Kansas public employees retirement system, in any manner which would jeopardize the interest of the holders or any trustee of such holders or inhibit or prevent performance or fulfillment by the authority, the state board of regents or the Kansas public employees retirement system with respect to the terms of any agreement made with the holders of the bonds or agreements made pursuant to this section, except that the failure of the state to appropriate moneys for any purpose shall not be deemed a violation of this pledge and covenant. The state board of regents and the Kansas public employees retirement system are hereby specifically authorized to include this pledge and covenant in any agreement with the authority. The authority is hereby specifically authorized to include this pledge and covenant in any bond resolution, trust indenture or agreement for the benefit of holders of the bonds.

(4) Revenue bonds may be issued pursuant to this section without obtaining the consent of any department, division, commission, board or agency of the state, other than the approvals of the state finance council required by this section, and without any other proceedings or the occurrence of any other conditions or other things other than those proceedings, conditions or things which are specifically required by the Kansas development finance authority act.
