"(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a), a county commission of any county, without an election, and no later than December 31, 2020, may issue bonds of the county, limited in amount as provided in subsection (a), for the purpose of refunding bonds which were originally issued prior to January 1, 2011, to refund other bonds. The prior refunding bonds are ratified and confirmed and given effect in all respects and any refunding bonds to be issued to refund those bonds are hereby authorized. This subsection shall not apply to any bonds which prior to the effective date of the act adding this language have been held invalid by the Supreme Court of Alabama or by final judgment of the circuit court in the county which issued the bonds and from which judgment an appeal was not taken to the Supreme Court of Alabama within the time provided by law for the taking of appeals or to any bonds the validity of which is an issue in any pending civil action commenced prior to the effective date of the act adding this language."
