A.  In connection with the issuance of any bonds that are to be sold in a public offering, the participating institution and the underwriter of such bonds shall be the housing authority's designated agents for the purpose of preparing all disclosure materials and otherwise ensuring that all requirements of federal and state laws are fully complied with in connection with such offering.  The participating institution and such underwriter shall accept such appointment in writing and shall, unless such requirement is expressly waived by the local housing authority, agree to indemnify and hold harmless the housing authority, its representatives, and the state and its public agencies and their respective officials, officers and employees from any and all claims, losses or damages, howsoever arising, resulting from inaccurate, incomplete, false or misleading statements contained in such disclosure materials, except those provided to the participating agency or underwriter by the housing authority or from failure to comply in any respect with the requirements of federal or state laws.

B.  As used in this Section, "public offering" means any offering of bonds other than a private placement with a single financial institution, and "underwriter" means any person conducting such public offering as managing underwriter, senior managing underwriter, placement agent, or lead financial institution in a placement involving several financial institutions, or other such person or entity playing a similar role.
