   (4) Each Agreement does not purport to create any debt of the State with respect to the Facility, other than a special obligation of the Authority acting on behalf of the State under the Act; and

     (5) The proposed financing of the Project by the Authority and the operation and use of the Facility will serve one or more needs and implement one or more purposes set forth in RSA 162-I: 1, will preserve or increase the social or economic prosperity of the State and one or more of its political subdivisions, and will promote the general welfare of the State's citizens.

   Section 2 . Ultimate Finding and Determination . The Governor and Council find that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit, and the Governor and Council determine that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.
