 In the opinion of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe
 LLP 
, Bond Counsel to the Authority, based upon an analysis of existing laws, regulations, rulings and court decisions, and assuming, among other matters, the accuracy of certain representations and compliance with certaincovenants, interest on the Bonds is excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes under Section 103 of the Internal RevenueCode of 1986 (the “Code”). In the further opinion of Bond Counsel, interest on the Bonds is not a specific preference item for purposes of the federal individual or corporate alternative minimum taxes, although Bond Counsel observes that such interest is included in adjusted currentearnings when calculating corporate alternative minimum taxable income. Bond Counsel is also of the opinion that interest on the Bondsis exempt from present State of California personal income taxes. Bond Counsel expresses no opinion regarding any other tax consequences related to the ownership or disposition of, or the accrual or receipt of interest on, the Bonds. See “TAX MATTERS.”
