Hotel Occupancy Tax Revenue Bonds are payable primarily from certain revenues pledged therefor and derived from a hotel occupancy tax imposed by the Government of Puerto Rico and collected by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company on substantially all hotel room rentals in Puerto Rico. To the extent other Government revenues are insufficient to pay for the general obligation debts and other guaranteed debt of the Government, the hotel occupancy tax revenues are subject to being applied first to the payment of such debts and obligations before they may be applied to pay debt service of the Bonds. The Bonds are limited obligations of the Authority payable solely from the pledged revenues; they do not constitute public debt of the Government of Puerto Rico.
