24. If the governing body of a county provides for the acquisition of a development easement under the provisions of the "Agriculture Retention and Development Act," P.L.1983, c.32 (C.4:1C-11 et al.) or the "Garden State Preservation Trust Act," sections 1 through 42 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-1 et seq.), it may sell the development potential associated with the development easement subject to the terms and conditions of the development transfer ordinance adopted pursuant to P.L.2004, c.2 (C.40:55D-137 et al.); provided that if the development easement was purchased using moneys provided pursuant to the "Garden State Preservation Trust Act," sections 1 through 42 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-1 et seq.), a percentage of all revenues generated through the resale of the development potential shall be refunded to the State in an amount equal to the State's percentage contribution to the original development easement purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such refund shall not be paid to the State in the event the State Treasurer determines that such refund would adversely affect the tax-exempt status of any bonds authorized pursuant to the "Garden State Preservation Trust Act," sections 1 through 42 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-1 et seq.). This repayment shall be made within 90 days after the end of the calendar year in which the sale occurs. L.2004,c.2,s.24.
