REVENUE BOND – A bond that is payable from a specific source of revenue and to which the full faith and credit of an issuer with taxing power is not pledged. Revenue bonds are payable from identified sources of revenue and do not permit the bondholders to compel taxation or legislative appropriation of funds not pledged for payment of debt service. Pledged revenues may be derived from operation of the financed project, grants and excise or other specified non-ad-valorem taxes. Generally, no voter approval is required prior to issuance of such obligations. Compare: GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND.
