This chapter, being necessary for the welfare of the state and its inhabitants, shall be liberally construed to effectuate its purposes. Neither this chapter nor anything in this chapter is or shall be construed as a restriction or limitation upon any powers that the corporation might otherwise have under any laws of this state, and this chapter is cumulative to any powers conferred by other laws. This chapter does and shall be construed to provide a complete, additional, and alternative method for the doing of the things authorized thereby and shall be regarded as supplemental and additional to powers conferred by other laws. However, the issuance of bonds, notes, and other obligations of the corporation under the provisions of this chapter need not comply with the requirements of any other state law applicable to the issuance of bonds, and other obligations. Contracts for the construction and acquisition of any project undertaken pursuant to this chapter shall comply with the provisions of any other state law applicable to contracts for the construction and acquisition of state owned property. No proceedings, notice, or approval shall be required for the issuance of any bonds, notes and other obligations or any instrument as security for them, except as is provided in this chapter.
