(B) The reasonably anticipated amount of tax-exempt obligations (other than the Series 2008A Notes and any other obligations described in clause (ii) of Section 265(b)(3)(C) of the Code) which will be issued by the Issuer (and all entities whose obligations will be aggregated with those of the Issuer) during this calendar year 2008 will not exceed $10,000,000; and

(C) Not more than $10,000,000 of obligations issued by the Issuer during this calendar year 2008 (including the Series 2008B Notes) have been designated for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code.

The Issuer shall use its best efforts to comply with any federal procedural requirements which may apply in order to effectuate the designation made by this paragraph.

Section 9. The provisions of this Resolution are hereby declared to be separable and if any action, phrase or provision shall for any reason by declared to be invalid, such declaration shall not affect the validity of the remainder of the sections, phrases and provisions.

Section 10. All resolutions or parts thereof in conflict herewith are repealed, to the extent of such conflict.
