Definitions. Unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, the following terms shall have the mean- ings assigned to them below when they are used in this Agree- ment: "Code" means the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder. "Escrow Fund" means the fund created by this Agreement to be administered by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement. "Escrowed Securities" means the noncallable United States Treasury obligations described in Exhibit "D" attached to this Agreement, or cash or other direct obligations of the United States of America substituted therefor pursuant to Section 4.03 of this Agreement. Section 1.02 . Other Definitions. The terms "Agreement", "Issuer", "Escrow Agent", "Refunded Obligations" , "Refunding Obligations" and "Paying Agent" , when they are used in this Agreement, shall have the meanings assigned to them in the preamble to this Agreement. 2 Section 1 .03 . Interpretations. The titles and headings of the articles and sections of this Agreement have been inserted for convenience and reference only and are not to be considered a part hereof and shall not in any way modify or restrict the terms hereof. This Agreement and all of the terms and provisions hereof shall be liberally construed to effect- uate the purposes set forth herein and to achieve the intended purpose of providing for the refunding of the Refunded Obliga- tions in accordance with applicable law. ARTICLE II DEPOSIT OF FUNDS AND ESCROWED SECURITIES Section 2 .01. Deposits in the Escrow Fund. Concurrently with the sale and delivery of the Refunding Obligations the Issuer shall deposit, or cause to be deposited, with the Escrow Agent, for deposit in the Escrow Fund, the funds and Escrowed Securities described in Exhibit "D" attached hereto, and the Escrow Agent shall, upon the receipt thereof, acknowledge such receipt to the Issuer in writing. ARTICLE III CREATION AND OPERATION OF ESCROW FUND Section 3 . 01. Escrow Fund. The Escrow Agent has created on its books a special trust fund and irrevocable escrow (the "Escrow Fund" ) . The Escrow Agent hereby agrees that upon receipt thereof it will deposit to the credit of the Escrow Fund the funds and the Escrowed Securities described in Exhibit "D" attached hereto. Such deposit, all proceeds therefrom, and all cash balances from time to time on deposit therein (a) shall be the property of the Escrow Fund, (b) shall be applied only in strict conformity with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and (c) are hereby irrevocably pledged to the payment of the principal of and interest on the Refunded Obligations, which payment shall be made by timely transfers of such amounts at such times as are provided for in Section 3 .02 hereof. When the final transfers have been made for the payment of such principal of and interest on the Refunded Obligations, any balance then remaining in the Escrow Fund shall be transferred to the Issuer, and the Escrow Agent shall thereupon be discharged from any further duties hereunder. Section 3 .02 . Payment of Principal and Interest. The Escrow Agent is hereby irrevocably instructed to transfer from the cash balances from time to time on deposit in the Escrow Fund, the amounts required to pay the principal of and interest on the Refunded Obligations when due in the amounts and at the times shown in Exhibit "C" attached hereto. Section 3 .03 . Sufficiency of Escrow Fund. The Issuer represents that the successive receipts of the principal of and interest on the Escrowed Securities will assure that the cash balance on deposit from time to time in the Escrow Fund will be at all times sufficient to provide moneys for transfer to the Paying Agent at the times and in the amounts required to pay the interest on the Refunded Obligations as such interest comes due and the principal of the Refunded Obligations as the Refunded Obligations mature, all as more fully set forth in Exhibit "E" attached hereto. If, for any reason, at any time, the cash balances on deposit or scheduled to be on deposit in the Escrow Fund shall be insufficient to transfer the amounts required by each place of payment (paying agent) for the Refunded Obligations to make the payments set forth in Section 3 . 02 hereof, the Issuer shall timely deposit in the Escrow Fund, from any funds that are lawfully available therefor, additional funds in the amounts required to make such payments. 3 Notice of any such insufficiency shall be given promptly as hereinafter provided, but the Escrow Agent shall not in any manner be responsible for any insufficiency of funds in the Escrow Fund or the Issuer' s failure to make additional deposits thereto. Section 3 .04. Trust Fund. The Escrow Agent shall hold at all times the Escrow Fund, the Escrowed Securities and all other assets of the Escrow Fund, wholly segregated from all other funds and securities on deposit with the Escrow Agent; it shall never allow the Escrowed Securities or any other assets of the Escrow Fund to be commingled with any other funds or securities of the Escrow Agent; and it shall hold and dispose of the assets of the Escrow Fund only as set forth herein. The Escrowed Securities and other assets of the Escrow Fund shall always be maintained by the Escrow Agent as trust funds for the benefit of the owners of the Refunded Obligations; and a special account thereof shall at all times be maintained on the books of the Escrow Agent. The owners of the Refunded Obliga- tions shall be entitled to the same preferred claim and first lien upon the Escrowed Securities, the proceeds thereof, and all other assets of the Escrow Fund to which they are entitled as owners of the Refunded Obligations. The amounts received by the Escrow Agent under this Agreement shall not be considered as a banking deposit by the Issuer, and the Escrow Agent shall have no right to title with respect thereto except as a con- structive trustee and Escrow Agent under the terms of this Agreement. The amounts received by the Escrow Agent under this Agreement shall not be subject to warrants, drafts or checks drawn by the Issuer or, except to the extent expressly herein provided, by the Paying Agent. Section 3 . 05. Security for Cash Balances. Cash balances from time to time on deposit in the Escrow Fund shall, to the extent not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or its successor, be continuously secured by a pledge of direct obligations of, or obligations unconditionally guaranteed by, the United States of America, having a market value at least equal to such cash balances. ARTICLE IV LIMITATION ON INVESTMENTS Section 4. 01. Except for the initial investment of the proceeds of the Refunding Obligations in the Escrowed Securi- ties, and except as provided in Sections 4.02 and 4. 03 hereof, the Escrow Agent shall not have any power or duty to invest or reinvest any money held hereunder, or to make substitutions of the Escrowed Securities, or to sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of the Escrowed Securities. Section 4. 02 . Reinvestment of Certain Cash Balances in Escrow by Escrow Agent. In addition to the Escrowed Securities listed in Exhibit "D" hereto, the Escrow Agent shall reinvest cash balances shown in Exhibit "F" attached hereto in zero (0) interest rate United States Treasury Obligations - State and Local Government Series to the extent such Obligations are available from the Department of the Treasury. All such reinvestments shall be made only from the portion of cash balances derived from the maturing principal of and interest on Escrowed Securities that are United States Treasury Certifi- cates of Indebtedness, Notes, or Bonds - State and Local Government Series. All such reinvestments shall be acquired on and shall mature on the dates shown on Exhibit "F" attached hereto. Section 4.03 . Substitution for Escrowed Securities. Concurrently with the sale and delivery of the Refunding Obligations, but not thereafter, the Issuer, at its option, may 4 substitute cash or non-interest bearing direct obligations of the United States Treasury (i . e. , Treasury obligations which mature and are payable in a stated amount on the maturity date thereof, and for which there are no payments other than the payment made on the maturity date) for non-interest bearing Escrowed Securities, if any, listed in part III of Exhibit "D" attached hereto, but only if such cash and/or substituted non-interest bearing direct obligations of the United States Treasury - (a) are in an amount, and/or mature in an amount, which, together with any cash substituted for such obliga- tions, is equal to or greater than the amount payable on the maturity date of the obligation listed in part III of Exhibit "D" for which such obligation is substituted, and (b) mature on or before the maturity date of the obligation listed in part III of Exhibit "D" for which such obligation is substituted. If any such cash and/or obligations are so substituted for any Escrowed Securities, the Issuer may, at any time thereafter, substitute for such cash and/or obligations the same Escrowed Securities for which such cash and/or obligations originally were substituted. Section 4.04. Allocation of Certain Escrowed Securities. Except as provided in this Section 4. 04, the maturing principal of and interest on the Escrowed Securities may be applied to the payment of any Refunded Obligations and no allocation or segregation of the receipts of principal or interest from such Escrowed Securities is required. The maturing principal of and interest on the Escrowed Securities listed in Exhibit "G" hereto shall be allocated and applied only to pay the Refunded Obligations listed on Exhibit "G" hereto. Section 4.05. Arbitrage. The Issuer hereby covenants and agrees that it shall never request the Escrow Agent to exercise any power hereunder or permit any part of the money in the Escrow Fund or proceeds from the sale of Escrowed Securi- ties to be used directly or indirectly to acquire any securi- ties or obligations if the exercise of such power or the acquisition of such securities or obligations would cause any Refunding Obligations or Refunded Obligations to be an "arbitrage bond" within the meaning of Section 103(c) of the Code. ARTICLE V APPLICATION OF CASH BALANCES Section 5.01 . In General. Except as provided in Sections 3 .02 and 4.02 hereof, no withdrawals, transfers, or reinvest- ment shall be made of cash balances in the Escrow Fund. ARTICLE VI RECORDS AND REPORTS Section 6. 01 . Records. The Escrow Agent will keep books of record and account in which complete and correct entries shall be made of all transactions relating to the receipts, disbursements, allocations and application of the money and Escrowed Securities deposited to the Escrow Fund and all proceeds thereof, and such books shall be available for in- spection at reasonable hours and under reasonable conditions by the Issuer and the owners of the Refunded Obligations. 5 Section 6. 02 . Reports. While this Agreement remains in effect, the Escrow Agent annually shall prepare and send to the Issuer a written report summarizing all transactions relating to the Escrow Fund during the preceding year, including, without limitation, credits to the Escrow Fund as a result of interest payments on or maturities of the Escrowed Securities and transfers from the Escrow Fund for payments on the Refunded Obligations or otherwise, together with a detailed statement of all Escrowed Securities and the cash balance on deposit in the Escrow Fund as of the end of such period. ARTICLE VII CONCERNING THE PAYING AGENTS AND ESCROW AGENT Section 7 .01. Representations. The Escrow Agent hereby represents that it has all necessary power and authority to enter into this Agreement and undertake the obligations and responsibilities imposed upon it herein, and that it will carry out all of its obligations hereunder. Section 7 . 02 . Limitation on Liability. The liability of the Escrow Agent to transfer funds for the payment of the principal of and interest on the Refunded Obligations shall be limited to the proceeds of the Escrowed Securities and the cash balances from time to time on deposit in the Escrow Fund. Notwithstanding any provision contained herein to the contrary, neither the Escrow Agent nor the Paying Agent shall have any liability whatsoever for the insufficiency of funds from time to time in the Escrow Fund or any failure of the obligors of the Escrowed Securities to make timely payment thereon, except for the obligation to notify the Issuer promptly of any such occurrence. The recitals herein and in the proceedings authorizing the Refunding Obligations shall be taken as the statements of the Issuer and shall not be considered as made by, or imposing any obligation or liability upon, the Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent is not a party to the proceedings authorizing the Refund- ing Obligations or the Refunded Obligations and is not respon- sible for nor bound by any of the provisions thereof (except as a place of payment and paying agent and/or a Paying Agent/- Registrar therefor) . In its capacity as Escrow Agent, it is agreed that the Escrow Agent need look only to the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The Escrow Agent makes no representations as to the value, conditions or sufficiency of the Escrow Fund, or any part thereof, or as to the title of the Issuer thereto, or as to the security afforded thereby or hereby, and the Escrow Agent shall not incur any liability or responsibility in respect to any of such matters. It is the intention of the parties hereto that the Escrow Agent shall never be required to use or advance its own funds or otherwise incur personal financial liability in the perfor- mance of any of its duties or the exercise of any of its rights and powers hereunder.

If, however, the Escrow Agent is called upon by the terms of this Agreement to determine the occurrence of any event or contingency, the Escrow Agent shall be obli- gated, in making such determination, only to exercise reason- able care and diligence, and in event of error in making such determination the Escrow Agent shall be liable only for its own misconduct or its negligence. In determining the occurrence of any such event or contingency the Escrow Agent may request from the Issuer or any other person such reasonable additional evidence as the Escrow Agent in its discretion may deem neces- sary to determine any fact relating to the occurrence of such event or contingency, and in this connection may make inquiries of, and consult with, among others, the Issuer at any time. Section 7 .03 . Compensation. (a) Concurrently with the sale and delivery of the Refunding Obligations, the Issuer shall pay to the Escrow Agent, as a fee for performing the services hereunder and for all expenses incurred or to be incurred by the Escrow Agent in the administration of this Agreement, the sum of $ , the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by the Escrow Agent. In the event that the Escrow Agent is requested to perform any extraordinary services hereunder, the Issuer hereby agrees to pay reasonable fees to the Escrow Agent for such extraordinary services and to re- imburse the Escrow Agent for all expenses incurred by the Escrow Agent in performing such extraordinary services, and the Escrow Agent hereby agrees to look only to the Issuer for the payment of such fees and reimbursement of such expenses. The Escrow Agent hereby agrees that in no event shall it ever assert any claim or lien against the Escrow Fund for any fees for its services, whether regular or extraordinary, as Escrow Agent, or in any other capacity, or for reimbursement for any of its expenses.

The Escrow Agent shall be obligated to make available to such other places of payment (paying agents) for the Refunded Obligations amounts from the Escrow Fund sufficient to pay when due the principal of and interest on any Refunded Obligations presented to them for payment, and to pay all charges of all places of payment (paying agents) for the Refunded Obligations for such paying agency services. * [The Issuer agrees separately and independently to pay to the Paying Agent/Registrar for the Issuer' s Series 1985 Bonds being refunded the fees and charges of such Paying Agent/Regis- trar for performing the registrar and transfer agent services of such Paying Agent/Registrar in accordance with the pro- visions of the proceedings authorizing the issuance of said Series 1985 Bonds, but that for such services as Paying 7 r Agent/Registrar relating solely to its function as registrar and transfer agent for the registration and transfer of said Series 1985 Bonds, said Paying Agent/Registrar separately will be responsible for billing the Issuer for its fees and expenses from time to time for continuing to act as such registrar and transfer agent. ]* (c) Upon receipt of the aforesaid specific sums stated in subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 7 .03 for Escrow Agent and paying agency fees, expenses, and services, the Escrow Agent shall acknowledge such receipt to the Issuer in writing.

In such event the Issuer, by appropriate action, promptly shall appoint an Escrow Agent to fill such vacancy.

If, in a proper case, no appointment of a successor Escrow Agent shall be made pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this section within three months after a vacancy shall have occurred, the owner of any Refunded Obligation may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor Escrow Agent. Such court may thereupon, after such notice, if any, as it may deem proper, prescribe and appoint a successor Escrow Agent. Any successor Escrow Agent shall be a corporation organ- ized and doing business under the laws of the United States or the State of Texas, authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers, having its principal office and place of business in the State of Texas, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $5,000,000 and subject to the super- vision or examination by Federal or State authority.
