(b) The municipal corporation may hold, use, enjoy, improve, develop, mortgage, lease and convey the real property and appurtenances attached thereto, or any part thereof, in this Commonwealth, in such manner as may be necessary for the beneficial use of the real property and appurtenances it holds in the other state, so long as it complies with the Constitution and relevant laws of this Commonwealth. Section 2. Nothing contained in this act shall be construed to prevent or relieve any real property or appurtenances attached thereto held by any such municipal corporation under the provisions of this act from being taxed as other real property within this Commonwealth is taxed. Section 3. All acts and parts of acts are hereby repealed in so far as they are inconsistent with the provisions of this act. Section 4. The provisions of this act shall become effective immediately upon final enactment.
